Inventory Shortgage

(Published on - 7/23/2018 6:38:52 PM)

Finding sellers appears to be much more difficult than it used to be.  National Mortgage News says that only 11% of surveyed homeowners expressed any desire to sell.  Tight inventory means less days on the market.  

 

Why don't homeowners want to sell?  With  the newfound equity you would think they could buy a bigger, better home now.  Well, the bigger better homes have been getting more expensive as well.  Higher prices are not the only deterrent to selling.  Did you know that 50% of all homeowners have an interest rate of 3.75% or less?  As you can see, the average interest rate today is higher than 3.75%.

What's hot in 2018?  This year will be a fun and interesting year for home decor.  Patterns are in and in a big way.  Expect to see geometric patterns for walls, floors, tile and more. 

 

Add a throw rug will an interesting pattern.  Or, how about wall paper that's a peel and stick.  This wall paper is super easy and can even be purchased at Target.   Devine Color Prints, removable wall and surface covering that is easy to apply, reposition, and remove.

 

A minimalist feel is also popular.  Scandinavian, mid-century modern and retro.  Metal furniture with velvet upholstery. Florals are also making a comeback.  

 

Some great colors for 2018....  a new take on Harvest Gold, some Old/New Greens and Pantone's color of the year "Ultra Violet".

 

This year will be a entertaining year for color, style and function.  Let's celebrate with some small, or maybe not so small, projects to bring new life into our homes.

When is the best time to buy Airline Tickets

(Published on - 11/8/2017 12:13:13 AM)

We're coming to a time of year when many of us will travel.  It may be for a Thanksgiving Holiday, a winter warm vacation spot or snow sports and skiing.   If you're like my family, we want the best holiday on our personal budget.

 

So when is the best time to buy Airline Tickets...... I did some searching and here's what I found:

 

According to Farecompare, the best day to purchase airline tickets is Tuesday at about 3pm.  Why?  Apparently many airlines release their inexpensive fares early Tuesday morning.  By the end of the day, competing airlines have adjusted their prices to be competitive.

 

Whether you choose to fly, drive or just stay home this holiday season, please make it a safe one.  And, when you're looking to maximize your budget on a home purchase, call Krista Brayer at Realty Executives, Tucson Elite.  520-975-5640


Flood Insurance

(Published on - 9/4/2017 7:25:21 PM)

Do you have flood insurance for your home?  After watching the extreme devastation to Texas this last week, my thoughts raced to, How Can I Help?  A local firefighter stated "if you truly want to help, just send money".  This made sense, as he explained the logistical nightmare in sending food and clothing.  There are some amazing, well organized non-profits in place for emergencies such as this.  

The expectation is that FEMA and personal hazard insurance will cover their financial losses.  Or, will they?  

 

Now might be a good time to review your home hazard insurance policy.  Call  your agent and ask some strategic questions.  Are you covered for "Acts of God"?
