NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY THAT NEW HOME

The 30 year fixed mortgage rate rose to its highest level in two years. The Feds multi stimulus programs which have kept lending rates low to help stimulate businesses and homeowners alike to borrow money for purchases and for improvements have slowly come to an end. The policy has kept Boston mortgage rates at record lows for most of the past 5 or so years.
mort1Mortgage rates have gone up more than 36% since May when the 30 year rate was at 3.35%.

“If you were considering buying a home, rates aren’t going to get much better any time soon” said Erin Lantz, director of mortgages at Seattle based Zillow.com. “Buying sooner rather than later makes good sense.”

Cash Buyers Putting ‘Squeeze’ On Boston Real Estate Buyers

Cash Buyers Putting ‘Squeeze’ On Boston Real Estate Buyers

MOneyApparently all cash buyers are putting the squeeze on normal real estate buyers. 40% of all the condos sold in Massachusetts in April did not involve any financing or mortgage. A quarter of all home sales also did not involve a mortgage or financing. There are many factors involved such as those people who in the past would normally be out of their parents homes are still not moved out yet due to the bad job market and can’t afford to pay a mortgage and the first time buyers are finding that they cant afford prices that are rising in today’s real estate market. Rents are rising right along with home prices. In Brighton, there was an 11.6% jump in rents in June compared to one year ago. Maybe those who are still living at home with mom and dad should look at the brighter side; at least they don’t have a mortgage loan that is higher than what the property is worth. It is apparent that many of the all cash buyers are foreign investors, and many of the new all cash buyers are the mover-uppers who are discovering that in today’s market, they can get their wanted price when selling, allowing them to put a substantial amount down when they turn around and purchase their new “move up” home.

BOSTON’S LOW CONDO INVENTORIES STARTING TO AFFECT POSITIVE SALES:

285 Columbus Back Bay

285 Columbus Back Bay

Time to Put Your Condo on the Market.

There is no doubt that the Boston real estate market continues to boom according to the latest sales figures for the different neighborhoods. The condo market has continued to set sales records with the Back Bay neighborhood leading the way. Sales prices are also breaking records. Condo prices in the downtown market jumped to a new record high in the second quarter of this year for several reasons. A tightening inventory and increased demand for luxury units were partially responsible for the increase in prices. Buyers are looking for new luxury amenities like valet services and concierge services.

In the three month period ending in June, there was a 5.3 % increase in prices over the same period a year ago, according to LINK, a Boston company that tracks condo sales in a 12-neighborhood area. There was a 2.45 increase in the luxury condo market sales between April and June, according to LINK. Overall sales of condos have shown a slight decrease from last year’s sales due to a growing inventory shortage. Real estate professionals are predicting a continuing increase in prices for the foreseeable future due to falling inventories. This situation has caused sales to jump in some of the other Boston neighborhoods in recent months according to Debra Blair, Pres. of LINK. Blair predicts that prices will continue to rise for at least another 3-5 years when inventories are expected to start increasing again.

The 340 unit mixed use and mixed income Charlesview Residences development in Boston’s Allston-Brighton neighborhood celebrated its grand opening recently when Mayor Thomas Menino and developer ‘The Community Builders’ cut the ribbon on the $141M project. The new Charlesview Residences replaces the 213 unit housing development that has served low to moderate income residents for way more than 40 years. Construction on the development began in 2011.

“It wasn’t a unanimous slam dunk proposal,” said Paul Berkeley, president of the Allston Civic Association. There were people who felt that the density was too much for the neighborhood, while others welcomed more affordable housing. The 2nd and 3rd phases will feature 100 affordable and market rate homes for sale.
