The True Impact of Home Staging

Roanoke TX real estate expert, Kirby Smith gives provides his daily blog posts today about home staging.  Today we feature an article from the Daily real estate news.

The True Impact of Home Staging

Sixty-two percent of listing agents say professional staging decreases the amount of time a home spends on the market, while 40 percent of buyer’s agents say their clients are more willing to walk through a home that has been staged, according to the National Association of REALTORS®’ 2017 Profile of Home Staging.

“REALTORS® know how important it is for buyers to be able to picture themselves living in a home, and staging a home makes that process much easier for potential buyers,” says NAR President William E. Brown. “While all real estate is local and many factors play into what a home is worth and how much buyers are willing to pay for it, staging can be the extra step sellers take to help sell their home more quickly and for a higher dollar value.”

Thirty-one percent of respondents to NAR’s survey say staging increased the dollar value of a home they sold by 1 percent to 5 percent; 13 percent of respondents say it increased a home’s dollar value by 6 percent to 10 percent. Agents on both the buying and selling side agree that the living room is the most important part of a home to stage, followed by the master bedroom, kitchen, and outdoor space.

Thirty-eight percent of listing agents say they stage every one of their sellers’ homes before listing them. Fourteen percent say they will only stage homes that are difficult to sell, while 7 percent say they only stage homes in higher price brackets. However, 37 percent of listing agents say they do not stage homes at all before listing them. Instead, they say they make recommendations to sellers to declutter their homes and fix any issues.

Agents who stage say the seller pays for the staging 25 percent of the time, according to the survey. Twenty-one percent say they have provided funds to stage a home. Fourteen percent of agents say they offer home staging services to sellers.

Mortgage Rates Today: What Homebuyers Should Know.

Mortgage Rates Today:  What Homebuyers Should Know.

Kirby Smith on Roanoke TX homes for sale.  

Hal Bundrick writes a great article today on mortgage rates.  If you are looking for Roanoke TX homes for sale, then most likely you'll need a mortgage.  Be up to date and current on the most current interest rates.  If you need a referral to a great lender, I can put you in touch with a top notch mortgage lender who is local.


mortgage rates

Mortgage rates are marking a three-year low, falling for the third consecutive week. But while prospective homeowners are seeing more buying power, lending standards are tightening.

Freddie Mac’s just-released weekly survey of lenders shows the following average rates for the most popular home loan terms:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages averaged 3.57% with an average 0.5 point for the week ending May 12, 2016.  A year ago, the rate averaged 3.85%.
  • 15-year fixed rates averaged 2.81% with an average 0.5 point. The same term priced at 3.07% a year ago.
  • 5-year adjustable-rate mortgages priced at 2.78% with an average 0.5 point. Last year at this time, the same ARM averaged 2.89%.

“Disappointing April employment data once again kept a lid on Treasury yields, which have struggled to stay above 1.8% since late March. As a result, the 30-year mortgage rate fell four basis points to 3.57%, a new low for 2016 and the lowest mark in three years,” Sean Becketti, chief economist for Freddie Mac, said in a release. “Prospective homebuyers will continue to take advantage of a falling rate environment that has seen mortgage rates drop in 14 of the previous 19 weeks.”

Meanwhile, mortgage application volume increased slightly from one week earlier, rising 0.4%, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association report for the week ending May 6, 2016.

Purchase applications were up 0.4%, as refi applications rose 0.5%. Overall, home purchase loan applications remain 14% higher than the same week one year ago.

Low interest rates, but tight inventory

With mortgage rates hovering at three-year lows, it would seem that prospective homebuyers have little to worry about. But with tight home inventory in many markets across the nation, there remain challenges.

“The downward movement in rates this year has been a gift to the well-qualified potential buyer, as the lower interest rate provides for almost 6% more buying power,” says Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for

But historically low housing inventory is sparking bidding wars in hot markets like Dallas, San Diego and San Jose, California. The National Association of Realtors says single-family home prices rose in 87% of measured markets. Median prices were up 6.3% in the first quarter of this year, compared to the same period in 2015.

And sustained low mortgage rates are having another effect: Lenders are taking on less risk.

“There are downsides to lower mortgage rates. One disadvantage is that credit availability declines marginally as the rates decline,” Smoke says. “With little margin, lenders become more risk-averse, so indicators of credit tightness like the average FICO score have ticked up as rates have gone down.”

The Mortgage Bankers Association says credit availability decreased again in April, continuing a tightening trend that began in November of last year.

Smoke says that while mortgage rates are expected to remain under 4% through early fall, buyers should monitor the market closely and expect short-term fluctuations.

“In this type of environment, it will be crucial for would-be buyers or refinancers to stay on top of rates, work closely with mortgage brokers or lenders, and learn about options like locks and float-downs,” Smoke says. “However, they do come at a price, so you need to weigh the potential gains against the costs with your lender.”
