Q4 2019 Report

Q4 Market Update 2019

 

Housing Market Overview

Prepared by Elliot Eisenberg, PhD., MLSListings Partner Economist, January 20, 2020

MLS Listings Quarterly Market Overview – Q4 2019

January 21, 2020

 

This article was posted today by MLS Listings. It touches on the last quarter of 2019 and I feel the information is pertinent to share with buyers and sellers. I have grabbed only the Monterey County part of the analysis.

Median sales prices in Monterey County surged to pre-recession levels, hitting $651,250 in Q4. Eisenberg noted, “The single-family market in Monterey County is ridiculously tight, with most metrics at historic levels and no relief in sight.”  Similarly, the Monterey County common interest market is also very tight, with low levels of active inventory and prices nearing pre-recession levels.

Eisenberg points out “There are no indications that the problem is going away tomorrow, and nothing will improve until there is more inventory on the market.”

2020 – A NEW DECADE

2020 – A NEW DECADE

By Juliette “Jette” Ferguson,MBA, CRS, Broker-Associate

I am excited that we are not only in the first month of the New Year, but also in a new decade!  I am goal – oriented already, but I find each decade an exciting opportunity to “go all out” with BHAG’s – yes, this dates me, but I still enjoy my Big Hairy Audacious Goals.  MBA Programs these days have a new name for it – but this suits me just fine!

My goals this year in business include becoming actively involved as a CRS Director- Certified Residential Specialist Designation. They also include training and sharing my expertise with my buyer’s agent and being religious about social media communication – rather than 10 posts one day and none for a week, I am focused on one post each day to offer tips to support buyers and sellers, as well as past successes, and goal setting advice.  I am open to ideas, so please do reply with a suggestion on what would benefit you in a daily blog post!

Each day, I focus on gratitude in the morning, followed by quiet time alone in the office before others arrive.  This way, I focus on key clients and how to best meet and exceed their buy/sell goals.  I assess my business goals monthly and quarterly, but I have been recently reminded that I sometimes lose “balance” in life.  This decade, I am focused on time with my husband, time riding my bicycle, and time with family and God!

This year, as in recent years, I will bring individuals to the Peace of Mind Dog Rescue Dinner Auction.  This is one of the best causes in Monterey County, supporting senior humans and senior dogs alike! Our dogs come from Peace of Mind Dog Rescue and I am blessed to have supported them as a buyer’s agent on a Pacific Grove and Monterey property purchase.

I find that setting goals that include giving back to an organization you believe in leads to many other friendships and opportunities!

60 YEAR FAMILY HOME ON KIMBALL AVENUE

60 YEAR FAMILY HOME ON KIMBALL AVENUE

 

By Jette Ferguson (Juliette Ferguson, Broker-Realtor, MBA, CRS 01405735)

January 15, 2020

TeamJette.com

 

 

 

 

I was hired to sell Cindy’s home for the highest possible price.  It had been in her family for more than 60 years and was her mother’s home in Seaside, California. Cindy was raised in the home since age 4 and had wonderful stories about the kids playing the unbuilt portion of the home.  As it turned out, the home was ½ built and ½ not built – but you could not tell this at all from the exterior. It was my first listing that was ½ built.  An appraiser recommended me to the seller due to my experience in Seaside.  I had a recent sale that was “the most similar” to this listing - if something can be “similar” to this unique home.

It consisted of a 3-bedroom 1-bathroom home with a converted garage (into storage space), plus another 800 s.f. or so as an attached ADU – it was wood framing only with sheetrock on parts and not on other parts...  However, the permit was pulled in 1954 and never acted on.  Sometimes people get confused by the term “permitted” – it really does not mean much – it is simply “permission to do something” and that permission generally falls within a specific timeframe with 60 years not being a winning number.  The result was the addition (1100 s.f. portion of the 2600-s.f. home) was never “finalled.”  In order for an addition to become legal, it must be inspected by the city for final approval – that term is called “finalled” and as a buyer, it is important to note the difference between a permit “pulled” and a permit “finalled.”  

Our team was most excited about a surprise gift that we gave to Cindy at the close of escrow.  We had a photograph of her childhood home blown up into a beautiful canvas wall hanging.  She treasures it.  The sale of a family home is often a very emotional project.  It is filled with childhood memories – some good and some bad depending on the home and the family.  We do our best to take all of the pain away from our sellers when we sell their home – but no matter what, it remains an emotional process for most and we are here every step of the way to catch our clients when they fall and keep them

Up when they are down.  I believe we are making a difference in the lives of our sellers and buyers alike – at least that is what they tell us! TeamJette.com

SEASIDE DECEMBER 2019 ANALYSIS

By Juliette “Jette the Realtor” Ferguson, CRS, MBA

Broker-Associate, Realtor, Sotheby’s International Realty, January 15, 2020

 

December 2019 Home Sales in Seaside, California (excluding Condo/Townhome)

AVERAGE SALES PRICE $606,000

AVERAGE DOM 65 DAYS

 

·         Average List Price: $627,000

·         Average Sales Price: : 606,000 (2018 asp $495,000) Up 23%

That shows homes selling at 93% of LIST PRICE on average in December 2019.

 

INVENTORY

 

·         In 2018 (26 listings) in 2019 (only 15 listings)

42% DROP IN INVENTORY (DECEMBER 2018 TO DECEMBER 2019)

(low inventory generally benefits a Seller more than a Buyer – but only ONE of many market indicators).

 

DOM – DAYS ON MARKET

·         2018 (23 Days)    

·         2019 (65 Days)

Upward Trend in DOM – LEVELING

 

 

CONSIDER SELLING?

·         Pull your own comp’s and go over them with your realtor. Good realtors will be able to identify the 3 most recent comparable properties – your next door neighbor’s home may not be a comp.

Why I Recommend Seller Home Inspections.

Why I Recommend Seller Home Inspections. By Juliette "Jette the Realtor" Ferguson, CRS, MBA, Broker-Realtor, Sotheby's Realty, Monterey County, California teamjette.com. January

Home Inspections can identify a multitude of items from roof or damaged lumber, to electrical or an HVAC system gone awry. A qualified home inspector ideally has a general contracting (or similar) background and years of experience. Paul Murrer is one home inspector that I have recommended for years. He is also a General Contractor. I hope to interview him in 2020 for Jette TV Season 3 on my YouTube Channel Playlist.

Monterey County sellers did not always purchase home inspections prior to showing their home to buyers.  Silicon Valley Buyer expectation for transparency and increased professionalism in the practice of real estate are two of many reasons that brought about these changes.  As more and more realtors are obtaining Bachelor's Degrees, MBA's - Master's Degrees in Business and some even take the next step to a CRS - Certified Residential Specialist designations, our home sales processes are improving.  It takes a village and I believe that the more educated our local realtors are, the higher the standards are in our village of Monterey County.  Linda Guy, a mentor in real estate, taught me the importance of seller inspections. She said it is always better for a seller to understand issues and problems before marketing the home.  I agree and continue recommending detailed home inspections and termite/wood inspections to my sellers.

 

Sellers win by remaining in control of negotiations when they partake in seller inspections. These inspections are also a gift to buyers and appreciated!  When buyers are offered full transparency with seller inspections upfront, they know what they are getting and can write offers accordingly.  Seller inspections reduce a buyer asking for corrections and/or credits mid-way through an escrow.  Seller inspections by quality inspectors make an as-is sale possible. Inspectors should be neutral parties - they write what they see. Paul Murrer of Murrer Certified Inspections is one home inspector that I have worked with for many years. I trust his inspections equally for my buyers and sellers.

 

A comprehensive home inspection identifies issues in a home. This results in money saved by knowing what is wrong.  Purchasing a home is a major investment - often the largest investment a family or individual makes in their lifetime. I have seen buyers skip writing offers on homes where sellers have not offered inspections upfront. The cost of $700.00 covers a typical home and termite inspection. It makes sense for a seller paying this one time. Buyers view it differently.  They may end up writing offers on two to three homes before finding the perfect match. They spend at least $1500 per home that does not offer seller inspections (including appraisal cost paid by buyers with a loan = most buyers).  Buyers greatly appreciate seller home inspections and sellers who do them usually receive more offers and better offers.  Buyers have the right to have their own inspections, but they are often satisfied with seller inspections when they know the inspector is solid.  

These days more and more sellers are realizing that by offering neutral home inspections, it expedites the sales process by identifying issues upfront. It also offers buyers full transparency promoting trust. My sellers net a higher return by learning what is wrong with their home prior to marketing it to buyers. They remain in control. A home inspection will never reveal every existing condition - inspectors are not experts in every detail of a home, but they call-out a specialist or mention if they cannot access an area.  A specialist could include a roof contractor, electrician, fireplace/chimney specialist, mold remediation expert, septic specialist, sewer lateral expert and more.

 

I encourage my sellers to take it a step further to best support an as-is sale.  I help them to obtain bids from reputable professionals to repair issues.  When the seller is in control, they can identify quality contractors who price fairly.  When a buyer is in control, they may be motivated to locate the most expensive contractors for negotiation purposes.  I work with my sellers to advise them on what repairs, if any, will support them in obtaining the highest price for their home.  Leaving inspections to buyers alone is a mistake.  A seller home inspection while working with a top realtor advising them will increase their net earnings, expedite the sales process, and significantly reduce or eliminate mid-sale negotiations. So sellers, be sure to hire a great realtor when you decide to sell your home!  We love selling homes in Monterey County. Please call us for a free home price analysis today. 831-402-3800.

CRS – Certified Residential Specialist certification

 

 

 

There are only about 20 realtors in Monterey County of a few thousand who have achieved a CRS – Certified Residential Specialist certification.  I have found the educational programs offered to CRS members to be the best – over and above any other real estate education I have encountered.  As a newer agent years ago, I attended a two-day business-planning course that set my path to become a CRS.  In 2014, I became a CRS and have never looked back.  I believe strongly in education and look forward to introducing my team members to CRS in 2020.  Continued education keeps our minds moving forward and encourages us to set and realize higher goals than we otherwise would have considered.

 

In 2020, I look forward to becoming more involved with the RRC as a CRS.  I have already scheduled educational courses in San Jose in January, Orlando in February, and Arizona in May.  I encourage all realtors to consider the CRS Path to offer buyers and sellers all that you can.  If not this path, then another – but continue educating yourselves annually – set larger goals – the bigger the vision the bigger the goal – the bigger the goal, the better chance of achieving a big goal!

 

As soon as I see it, I will share an article in Real Producer’s Magazine - it is about the RRC and the CRS Designation.  I am thrilled to be recognized in it with other local realtors who achieved this designation.  Being a member of the RRC enables realtors to excel to support clients and to connect with like-minded individuals across the USA.  When I refer my friends, family, and clients to a realtor within California or in the USA, I always look for a CRS Agent before any other realtor because I know the effort it takes to become one and the mind-set of the individuals who want to offer their clients way beyond the pack.  With more than 1.4 Million realtors in the USA, it is important to differentiate yourself and being a CRS – Certified Residential Specialist is one way that I do so – and one way I do so! Thank you RRC for offering the best courses in the nation to support top realtors to become the best they can for their clients!

Peace of Mind Dog Rescue

Peace of Mind Dog Rescue

By Juliette "Jette the Realtor" Ferguson, January 9, 2020

 

Titus the Tail and Ella the Moose (Age 10 and 13) Jette and Kurt Ferguson (Parents). Peace of Mind Dog Rescue

 

Peace of Mind Dog Rescue has been a blessing in our lives. As a past fosterer, we have adopted several dogs from them. Ella the Moose is still going at age 13. We had Jake only 1.5 years from age 8 to 9.5, but we have no regrets. Titus the Tail is now 10. I wanted to share this list of adoptable dogs this week because there is no better organization supporting senior dogs and senior humans alike. When a senior citizen passes away or moves to a retirement facility not allowing dogs, Peace of Mind steps in and finds a home for those dogs. They are not a kennel - they have amazing volunteers throughout the county who foster their dogs.  I encourage you to consider fostering, donating, or adopting a fabulous dog from Peace of Mind Dog Rescue

On Broadway in Seaside

On Broadway in Seaside

By Juliette "Jette the Realtor" Ferguson, CRS, MBA

Broker-Realtor DRE #01405735, Monterey County, 831-402-3800 TeamJette.com

 

As I stand here on Broadway Avenue in Seaside, California – my town, I have to love almost getting run over as Ron Bird takes this photo of me with a marijuana and yogurt shop in the background. Besides this, Broadway Avenue has become “the place to be” on the Monterey Peninsula. As Carmel Restauranteers open up shop in Seaside, we see more and more opportunities arise. Although Gusto’s Italian Restaurant is not “on Broadway” it is close and offers authentic Italian cuisine. Other Brothers Brewery is our new micro-brewery with food that gluten eaters will adore. Counter Point Coffee is my favorite coffee house – trendy, hip, and great coffee and tea! Several other restaurants are opening up, plus a new bike lane. Seaside is sunny, diverse, and filled with mid-century homes built in the 1950’s and 1960’s. We love selling homes in Seaside and supporting our buyers on the purchase of their sun-belt home. Not to worry, because we cover all of Monterey County for our buyers and look forward to helping in Pacific Grove, Carmel, Salinas, and Marina alike!

 

This weekend, how about checking out Broadway Avenue in Seaside, between Fremont Blvd. and Del Monte Blvd. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with our Monterey Peninsula Up and Coming Community!
