It’s Warm & Sunny! A perfect time for this 2015 Naisbitt-Bagley Team 2nd Spring Seller Newsletter to Arrive!

It’s Warm & Sunny! A perfect time for this 2015 Naisbitt-Bagley Team 2nd Spring Seller Newsletter to Arrive!

The Spectrum reported great news for Southern Utah recently in an article by David DeMille titled, “Wages Starting To Move Upward!”  Underneath the title were the words, “4 straight years of sustained job growth in region.”  The article said that Washington County wages jumped 6 percent; that Iron County wages were up 5 percent; and that Beaver County wages were up 4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to the previous year.  Data released by the Utah Department of Workforce Services indicated that this marked the “first major jump in pay for the area since before the Great Recession.”  Rising wages and more jobs have to be a good sign of recovery!

The latest published “Local Market Updates by County February 2015” from the Utah Association of REALTORS (UAR) are attached.  In February of 2014, there were 42 sales that closed in Iron County and there were 81 in February 2015.  That is a High-jump of 92.9%–nearly double!  The year to date (YTD) rise in Iron County closed sales is 41.4% from 2014 to 2015!  That is a booming market for the first part of 2015 in my opinion!  The Median Sales Price was down 7.4% for the month, but for the YTD it was up 2.3%!

Our Iron County median price of $134,000 indicates that buyers are still finding really great home values at great prices in our area.  Interest rates are still low, so buyers can purchase homes often for less than rent.  Investors are looking for homes and multi-units to rent out so their tenants can purchase their homes for them.  Other price ranges are selling when the homes and property are priced competitively.  This month we worked with several buyers close to the $300,000 range, and we are definitely seeing more activity in the higher price ranges.  That is another indicator of a strong market.  The real estate inventory is low enough that we are still seeing multiple offers.  I wonder sometimes if there is a magnet somewhere that attracts another offer after the first comes in.  We have seen homes that have been on the market for quite awhile attract multiple offers.

I do love real estate!  I believe it is the best investment there is whether it is your own home or whether you plan to be the landlord.  My father was a real estate broker in Bountiful, Utah.  I learned from both his words and his example that you have to give good hard honest top service with top knowledge to all of your clients.   Buying and selling real estate is one of the major business/personal transactions that take place in any person’s life.  We are committed to providing that type of expertise to all our clients and we will continue to work hard to get your property or home sold.  How?

1. We will continue to aggressively market your home or property both off and on line.  That is the 1st and one of the most important steps needed in getting your home or property sold.

However, we work with you as a Team and there are 3 more steps to selling homes and the rest are all up to you as the seller!  What are they?

2. Do you want your home or property marked SOLD or for it to just be available for sale? To sell, the home must be priced competitively!  Otherwise, the home will just be used as a comparison to help some looker choose a different home.  A seller recently came into my office and said she wouldn’t reduce her price even though there was quite a distance between her price and the market value.  Even though we showed her sold properties that had gone for much less, she insisted the buyer could just make an offer.  The problem with that logic is that buyers shop a great deal both on-line and in person before they make an offer.  Why would they make a low offer on a high-priced listing when they can find a better value at the store next door and make a reasonable offer?  They may choose not to even look at it.  Call if you want to know competitive pricing for your property.

3. “The way you live in a home is not the way you sell a home!”  The previous quote is famous from Barb Schwarz, “The Creator of Home Staging.”  You may have seen her on TV!  I trained under her over 20 years ago and again at an ERA Convention in recent years.  She said, “To sell your home for top dollar in the least amount of time, stage your house to sell.” I can loan you her staging ideas if you would like to borrow her DVD.  Also, part of our service to our clients is to help them by giving ideas for making their home show-perfect.  This is even more important now more than ever because your home is on-line with many pictures in video form and as slide presentations.  Your home needs to show well enough to be in a home magazine or a show-window because that is where it will be worldwide!  Buyers may rule your home out if it isn’t “picture-perfect.”

4. ” Let us in!”  Recently, I showed homes to buyers who wanted to view nearly 20 homes in the 2 days while they were in town, so they could decide which home they wanted.  They had already viewed the homes on-line and wanted a closer look in person.  We had the tour all lined up and in order when an agent called and said we would need to view one of the homes an hour later because the baby was taking a nap.  Having raised 6 babies, I totally relate and empathize with this dear mom.  However, there was no way we could readjust the schedule to include that home when we were showing houses between Parowan and New Harmony including Cedar City and Enoch.  With the buyers’ tight schedule, we didn’t have time to back-track.  The buyers felt there were plenty of homes from which to choose, so I was told to cancel that showing.  How sad!  Couldn’t we have tip-toed?  If there is any way possible, please allow the tour at the buyer’s convenience.  Since most of our buyers are from out of town and plan their trips to pack in the most in the least amount of time, that is very important.

Land and commercial ads are attracting calls, but still are slow sellers requiring much patience and lots of advertising.  Bargain-priced lots are attracting buyers and new construction homes are selling.

Time moves on and as it does, I truly believe our real estate market is on the move and definitely in a good way!  Don’t delay!  Please call the Naisbitt-Bagley Team today at 435-865-1019 for your free consultation at ERA Realty Center, so we can help you make your realty dreams a reality!  You can also text or call Matt Bagley at 435-590-8788; Janet Naisbitt-Bagley at 435-559-7772; and Jennifer Corral at 435-559-0366 and our email address is bagleyteam@gmail.com.  Do you have any questions, concerns, or other?  We appreciate working with you and we hope to hear from you soon!

2nd Fall 2014 Naisbitt-Bagley Team Seller Newsletter Update

2nd Fall 2014 Naisbitt-Bagley Team Seller Newsletter Update

Fall is here and the leaves are beautiful. Experiencing our 4 seasons in Cedar City and surrounding areas brings joy to the heart! However, if you haven’t WINTERIZED yet, now is the time! Freezing temperatures switching back and forth between sunshine and warmth! Avoid those terrible frozen pipes!

With the coming of fall, the excitement arrives for the holidays! Some think they should take their homes off the market! On the contrary, your home is very warm and inviting with decorations. Buyers purchase 90% on emotion according to statistics, and decorations often bring back warm feelings and love. Another positive for holiday showings, is that buyers this time of year are typically serious. They need to buy now! Buyers who don’t need to buy right away will most likely put of their home and land shopping until better weather and less busy schedules.

The Utah Association of REALTORS (UAR) county updates are completed and attached for August 2014! As I mentioned, it takes UAR approximately 2 or 3 months to compile the statistics for every county from the Multiple Listing Services (MLS), so these are the latest statistics available for you.

Interest rates are still low and buyers can purchase often with a payment of less than rent. Multiple offers often come in on properties priced for the market. Most homes sell below $200,000 but homes are selling in all price ranges when priced for the market. We are seeing buyers looking for primary residences as well as investment properties. Buyers are moving up and down and out of town and in town. Many buyers come from out of state. Commercial, land, lots are still slow movers and often discount prices to sell.

Good news: According to the report, August closed sales in 2014 were 25.6% better than 2013. Closed sales year to date (YTD) 2014 were up 4.8% as compared to 2013. Median sales price YTD is $138,000 which is up 6.2%.

In HomeFinder Spectrum and Daily News October 18, 2014 issue, there is a really good article titled, “Pay attention to defects that affect safety” by Frank Ross. It is addressed to buyers, but sellers can take note and prepare in advance of showing and selling the home. Also, the buyer will most likely have a thorough home inspection report that contains “…maintenance recommendations, estimated life expectancies, informational observations…”. The article names four categories that I believe are worth the seller addressing and fixing in advance if at all possible:

“1. Major defects…”

“2. Deferred maintenance or conditions that could lead to major defects…”

“3. Items that may hamper your ability to obtain financing, legally occupy or “insure the home…”

“4. Safety hazards…”

Sometimes the seller can fix a “minor thing” “like a missing stairway hand rail, or faulty GFCI receptacle” that may not cost much but could save a life later on. When the seller fills out his required “Seller’s Disclosures,” it is nice to list the item as fixed rather than not working. The buyers often want the price of the home discounted much more than it would cost for the seller to fix the item ahead of time. This can be as important as cleaning, painting and new flooring which are top priorities in preparing a home for sale.

We are sad that CML Mines has announced that it is suspending its production. According to Cedar City Daily News, “While company officials were not able to give out the exact number of employees, Dale Gilbert, president and CEO of CML Metals, said the layoffs will affect more than 100 people. We hope the future holds a reversal of that decision!

Pricing can affect the value of marketing. If the price isn’t right, the ad doesn’t attract a showing, so please contact us today for your free consultation on pricing, staging or any other concerns or questions you want to discuss!

Please let us know if there is anything else you want us to do to help you reach your goals. Call 435-865-1019 or email naisbitt@inxsnet.com. You can also text our Naisbitt-Bagley Team: Matt 435-590-8788; Jennifer C. 435-559-0366; Janet 435-559-7772 for top service. We want to help your realty dreams become a reality! We care.

Naisbitt-Bagley Team, ERA Realty Center, 1st Fall Newsletter Update–Happy Harvesting!

Naisbitt-Bagley Team, ERA Realty Center, 1st Fall Newsletter Update–Happy Harvesting!

According to the Utah REALTOR Third Quarter 2014 official magazine of the Utah Association of REALTORS, “Utah prices still rising but at a slower rate.”   The article states, “Home prices are on the rise but are not spiking as they did last year.”  “Home buyers are benefiting from slower price growth due to the much-needed rising inventory levels seen since the beginning of the year, said Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of REALTORS.”  The article goes on to say, “A slowing in the rate of home price gains is also helping prevent real estate from becoming unaffordable relative to incomes.  Yun said the gap in wage and housing price growth appears to be narrowing.”  “Affordability issues will be less of an impact going forward, Yun said.”  “We’re hoping home prices won’t move up sharply, and I don’t think so due to increased inventory.”  “There were 21,538 properties for sale in Utah at the end of June, up 7.3 percent from last year.  Utah buyers had about 1,500 more listings from which to choose than they did in June 2013.”

Attached is the latest “Utah Association of REALTORS Local Market Updates by County July 2014.”  It takes the Utah Association of REALTORS (UAR) approximately 2 to 3 months to compile the statistics for the report of all counties in Utah, so July has the most current statistics available.  According to the report, Iron County closed sales are up 2.6% year to date (YTD) as compared to 2013 this same time.  The Median sales price in Iron County is up 7% YTD to $138,000 as compared to 2013.  If you look at the month of July of 2013 and compare it to July of 2014, the median sales price was up 10.2% in 2014 for that month to $140,500.The information on all the other counties in Utah is attached.

Homes in all price ranges are selling if marketed aggressively and priced with the market and especially if they show well.  Homes under $200,000 are still attracting the bulk of the buyers and sometimes more than 1 which creates a multiple offer situation!  Lots and land are selling at bargain prices and new construction is attracting buyers to sometimes pay a little more than resale prices.  Foreclosures and short sales are still available with more on the way.  Investors are in the market and are often looking for multi-units, but there are very few available.  2nd homes buyers are in the market but most buyers are looking to occupy their dream home.  Some buyers are upsizing and some are downsizing.  Commercial and development properties are still in the back-ground, but improvements in the economy should help in the future to get those sold.

4 steps necessary to attract top dollar quickly and with very few problems!    Isn’t that what sellers want?

  1. Aggressive marketing worldwide is very important! The Naisbitt-Bagley Team’s marketing plan works.  We do not know of anyone with a more aggressive advertising policy to attract buyers as well as other real estate agents to show their homes and properties.   Our real estate listings go on-line all over the world plus it is our goal to market locally wherever a buyer might be!  Please call 435-865-1019 for a copy of our market plan today.
  1. Pricing home and property is of utmost importance. Consult with the Naisbitt-Bagley Team to get an overview of market pricing for your home or property to see if it needs a market adjustment in price.  If sellers want to attract buyers to tour their real estate, the advertised price needs to be at market!  Buyers spend hours looking on-line and are not likely to tour an overpriced property even if it is advertised aggressively.
  1. Staging for top dollar: According to Vol. 30, No.9 September 2014 REAL ESTATE Magazine article, “Staging: Books Make it Better,” “One conventional de-cluttering strategy includes packing up your books.  Now your book cases, night stands, coffee tables, couch tables and end tables are ready to be staged…with books.”  “Much like the pillow-staging principle…The color of the books, the number of books and the placement of the books is the key to effectively staging with books.” “Choose hardbound books with cover colors that fit into your scheme.” “Just as with pillows, odd numbers are suitable for home staging with books.”  You’ll want to place the books in an attractive and charming position.

It has been our experience that the first impression for buyers is important!  Spiff up the yard and entry!  Go into every room and make “light and space.”  A fresh coat of pain, new carpet, and a clean home go a long way to making a warm and cozy reception for a buyer.  The smell of cookies or bread baking brings fond memories to the surface of those touring your home!  Buyers purchase their own home based approximately 90% on emotion for good reason.  A home has to feel good and be welcoming every day of your life!  Some sellers don’t realize that land can be prepared for showings also!  Have your land weeded and tilled, so it doesn’t look like a big project!  Buyers like to feel good about where there home is to be built.  Call the Naisbitt-Bagley Team for a free consultation to prepare your home or property for sale.

  1. Make sure your home is ready to show at all times. Work with the buyer on their schedule.   It is very difficult to plan a tour around a seller’s schedule when there are 5 or more homes to tour.  It is easier to tour them in order of where they are, so you are not wasting time going back and forth.  Sometimes the buyer will choose not to see a home rather than have their tour go longer in order to go back to the same area they have already left.   Real Estate agents will usually give a seller as much notice as they get, which may only be a few minutes.   I remember a buyer coming in from a Shakespear Play matinee.  They said, “It feels good here and people smile. We want to buy a second home here.” They decided to buy and they did!  Luckily the sellers let us tour the home they bought with only15 minutes notice.  Please let us know if you would like a copy of our free directions for preparing a home to show in 10 minutes.”  We also have a free DVD on preparing your home for sale if you would like to view it.

Just a reminder!  It is getting close to time to winterize!  It is difficult to believe fall is here, but as the leaves color, we know freezing weather is on its way!

Where Did All The Homes For Sale in Cedar City Go?

Cedar City Real Estate inventory is down, and sales prices have risen just a little. This seems to be causing a shift in the real estate market in trhe Cedar City, UT, area.

Where did all the homes for sale go? Some have been purchased by homeowners and investors. Some have been taken off the market by sellers who have noticed that prices are going up. They are hoping they will go up even more.

Last week I showed homes to buyers. The homes would be active and for sale and then suddenly would go under contract before we even had a chance to look at the home and write up the offer. Friday and Saturday, however, 2 homes were simply taken off the market even as I had buyers interested in them.

We need homes for sale while the buyers are here wanting to purchase them. There are no guarantees in this real estate market. Elevators go up and down and so do real estate markets. There is no qay to know the next few months. There is no crystal ball.

I believe that now is a good time to buy and sell. Please call the Naisbitt-Bagley team for your own free consultation and market overview to help you decide how to make your real estate dreams come true. This team has the experience and knowledge to help you get the results you want in today’s world of real estate. That’s the Naisbitt-Bagley Team at ERA Realty Center at 435-865-1019 or email naisbitt@infowest.com.

Why Is It Important For Buyers To Use An Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR)?

According to Today’s Buyer’s Rep, “When consumers become home buyers, they typically put a lot more effort into finding the property they want to purchase, instead of the agent they want to assist them.”  Actually, the agent the buyer chooses is every bit as important.

Buyers are encouraged to interview the agent they choose.  Training and experience are both important.   The designations behind a real estate agent’s name have meaning and should be considered since they benefit the client.  Those letters represent many hours of training by conscientious REALTORs who want to make sure they give the top advice available to help buyers get the successful results they deserve.

When buyers look for an agent, those little letters, “ABR,” behind the name do make a difference according to the National Association of REALTORs.  Knowledge and skill become very important when you are making one of the largest investments of your life!  Accredited Buyer Representatives receive extra training above and beyond to help buyers through the entire real estate transaction.

If your agent has top training and expertise, those skills will benefit you in negotiating your offer and writing your contract and much more.  Knowing the real estate market and touring homes is only a small part of the process.  There are inspections, title companies, appraisals, contracts, negotiations and many other details to deal with along the way.  The agent you choose could make a huge difference in making sure the terms and price are all included in your contract and that pitfalls are avoided.

In order to benefit her clients, Janet Naisbitt-Bagley of ERA Realty Center has worked hard to gain the special skills and knowledge to help you with all of your real estate needs.  She is an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) as well as an Associate Broker, Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), ERA Relocation Specialist (ERS), Graduate Real Estate Institute (GRI), Short Sale Foreclosure Resource (SFR), and SSE (Utah Short Sale Expert Certification).  Janet has also been certified to market luxury homes (International Collection).  She also has nearly 30 years experience as a top producer and has been honored with ERA’s 1st in service award, which is her favorite.

Janet and her team of licensed professional real estate agents would love to help you with all of your real estate needs whether buying or selling.  Please check out the free reports and bargains available on her website at www.homesincedarcity.com including short sales, foreclosures and other values available now.  Please call for your special tour of any home or for your free consultation regarding pricing and staging your home at 435-865-1019  or toll free at 800-934-3742 or email naisbitt@infowest.com today.

It’s All About The Client When They Are Buying Their Own Home!

I remember working in a place as a teenager that had a sign on the wall that said, “The customer is always right!”  I have always believed that is true.  Top service is what every client deserves in every case.  Usually REALTORS are flexible enough to work with the clients in a way that is satisfactory to the client.  We try to remember that their interests come first ahead of our own.

I was taught from my youth to go the “extra mile.”  Service is more than filling needs, in my opinion, it requires caring, knowledge, preparation, responsibility, dependability, experience, loyalty, kindness, sincerity, understanding and much more.  We need to be there for them.  Most REALTORS work hard to fit this ideal.

One of the reasons I went to work at ERA Realty Center is the broker’s statement, “I don’t want any agents with $ signs in their eyes.  If you give good, hard, honest service, then the dollars will follow.”  That was similar to what my dad, who was a real estate broker for many years, had told me; so I hung my license at ERA.

My dad had taught me that you must treat everyone with honesty and integrity and work hard.  He said the word would get out, and satisfied clients would refer me to others.  Good advice, Dad!  Thank you!  My dad has passed on to a better world, but his advice to REALTORS or anyone in business is excellent and stands proven.  Most REALTORS live up to this goal.

Every client deserves a listening ear.  Communication is key.  How else can you learn what they want and know what their goals are?  Listen and learn.  Act and please.  Build a rapport with them that allows them to be comfortable and to communicate their feelings and desires.  I believe most REALTORS put clients first.

Typically, REALTORS make sure clients are aware of the real estate that is available that matches their needs by using all of the technology available as well as our own efforts.  We want to make sure the clients know of every home or property that matches their criteria and that they learn of new properties immediately as they come on the market.

Negotiating skills are valuable and necessary.  REALTORS negotiate on their clients’ behalf, so training and experience are necessary tools.

Most REALTORS like to inform clients about all the details and contracts in the transaction and the process involved along with giving them copies of everything.  Letting clients know what you are doing for them and why it needs to be done is important.  Some clients do not understand the real estate language.  What seems simple to an agent, may be like a foreign language to a buyer or seller.  We are like real estate educators for our clients.

As the title exclaims,  “It’s All About The Client!”  That is why the REALTOR is the client’s best friend!

October Market Update

October 2012 Market Update for Cedar City, Utah

  • IT IS TIME TO WINTERIZE INSIDE AND OUT!  Freezing temperatures are at hand and can cause considerable damage if pipes freeze, etc.  Call with questions.
  • August 2012 UAR Local Market Updates by County are now available:  Iron County Closed sales are up 2012 YTD by 8.5% as compared to 2011 YTD.  August 2012 closed sales are actually up 13.6% as compared with August 2011. The median sales price 2012 YTD is $94,000 which is down only 2% as compared to YTD 2011 figure of $95,900.  The exciting thing is that the median price for August 2012 is $134,500 as compared to August 2011 of $107,500 which is an increase of 25.2%.  I do believe we are beginning to see an increase in sales prices as well as an increase in closed sales.
  • It appears that we do not have as many foreclosures on the market.  Banks are approving short sales, which means they sometimes do accept less than what is owed as payment on the mortgage.  If an owner owes more than a home is worth, doing a short sale may be an option.  Check with your lender for all options.
  • Interest rates are still a at historic low which is helping buyers qualify for homes while prices are still low enough to allow a mortgage payment lower than rent in many cases.
  • Home inventory is decreasing.  Homes in the lower price ranges are often experience multiple offers and sometimes sell above listing price.
  • Homes in all price ranges are selling if they are priced correctly, show well, and are advertised aggressively.  Multi-unit properties are selling.  Investors are here.
  • Lots, land, acreage, development land and commercial properties are still experiencing an extremely slow market with very few buyers and very little money available for loans.
  • Fall and Winter can be good times to sell with serious buyers looking to relocate.  It is true that there are typically not as many buyers as in spring and summer, but often there also are not as many homes for sale which evens out.  ERA Real Estate completed a survey to show who buys in the fall that was sent to me in an email from ERA Network News Thursday, October 4, 2012.  The survey also received national media coverage in RealtyToday.com and others.  The article points out that families with children tend to purchase based on the school year schedule which peaks in June or July.  However, many first-time home buyers purchase in the fall as well as Move-up buyers, downsizing and retiring buyers.  Investors stay in the picture in the fall as do military relocations and vacation buyers in that order.  The article points out that “Back to School Means Back to Business for Homebuyers.”
  • Dressing your home for the holidays can be warm and inviting to buyers.  Curb appeal is important as well as making home repairs in advance.  Since there is no way to know when your buyer will arrive, I believe in marketing aggressively all year long.  Please be assured that your home and property will continue to receive top marketing.
  • Pricing and showcasing are always top priorities.  Please call 435-865-1019 or 800-934-3742 for a consultation regarding market pricing and showcasing if your home or property has not sold.  You can also email naisbitt@infowest.com.  You can text or call Janet’s mobile at 435-559-7772.  Please check out your competition on the MLS in this real estate market at http://www.homesincedarcity.com.

Don’t Be Surprised If You Share The Hope of Buying The Home You Love!

You may not be the only one making an offer on the home of your dreams.  Multiple offers are common, and buyers often offer more than list price in order to beat out the competition.

Is it still a buyer’s market?  Yes and No.  If you mean are there great buys and low interest rates on Cedar City, UT, homes for sale, the answer is yes.  However, there are more buyers offering, and there aren’t as many homes on the market.  Supply and demand seems to be indicating a turn toward a seller’s market in some price ranges.  Some buyers are even willing to pay above appraised value in order to win.

What should buyers do?  Start looking for your home right away. If you find the home you want, offer immediately.  How much?  Your REALTOR can show you sold comparables that will help give you an idea of what the home appraisal may be.  But note that buyers are sometimes offering above the sold comparables.

If you want a bargain and you don’t care if you get that particular home, go ahead and offer less than list price.  If you really want the home, you’ll want to offer at least full price.  Even full price may not be enough if you find your offer competing against multiple offers.  Buyers often offer above list price.

You’ll want to remember that a seller has the right to consider all offers up until he signs one.  His right to choose is gold.  He doesn’t have to come back to your offer at all if he has another offer he prefers, so you’ll want to make your offer the best you are willing to do.  You’ll want to offer enough that you won’t feel bad if you lose the home because you wouldn’t have wanted to pay any more anyway.

The seller facing multiple offers on his home has 3 choices as to how to respond to multiple offers.  He can reject one and counter or accept the other.  He can counter all of them however he wants with the clause included that if more than one buyer accept his counter he can choose which one he wants.  Another choice is that he can request all buyer’s highest and best offer.

If you do lose out to another bidder, don’t give up.  Sometimes you have to offer on 3 or 4 homes before you become the happy successful bidder. Make sure your agent will keep working with you until you own your home.  I believe you’ll always be happy that you joined the homeowners who are glad they kept trying until they bought their dream home.

Please call the Naisbitt-Bagley team at 435-865-1019 today for top experienced service with all of your real estate needs or email naisbitt@infowest.com.  You can text Janet or call her mobile at 435-559-7772 or call toll free 800-934-3742.
