It’s Not Just About the Price of the Home


When most of us begin searching for a home, we naturally start by looking at the price. It’s important, however, to closely consider what else impacts the purchase. It’s not just the price of the house that matters, but the overall cost in the long run. Today, that’s largely impacted by low mortgage rates. Low rates are actually making homes more affordable now than at any time since 2016, and here’s why.

Today’s low rates are off-setting rising home prices because it’s less expensive to borrow money. In essence, purchasing a home while mortgage rates are this low may save you significantly over the life of your home loan.

Taking a look at the graph below with data sourced from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the higher the bars rise, the more affordable homes are. The orange bars represent the period of time when homes were most affordable, but ...

Bold Predictions - Looking Back on 2018 and Predicting 2019

Online Offer Companies vs. Traditional Sales - A Deeper Dive

Hi everyone,
On Today's episode of #ZPLive (https://youtu.be/qo42rRBzvx4) we discussed a Case Study discussing selling your home to one of the large online home buyers vs selling the home through a traditional manner.  Many people have seen commercials for OfferPad, OpenDoor and now, Zillow, to BUY your home for you and you can close at your convenience.  But, does the convenience offset the price?  Read on...
The Situation
I took my home, located in Las Vegas, and entered details onto one of the large website companies (not going to name names - hint, I did let it slip which one on the video above).  I entered all my information, including all the upgrades and dates they were done, and even submitted some pictures.  Within about 12 hours, I received my offer.
I then had 2 agents that are UNRELATED to me and had them provide me an anticipated List Price, anticipated Sales Price, How long they thought it would take to list, sell and close my sale, and most ir ...
