4 Baby Boomer Housing Trends to Watch

The baby boomer generation is more active than generations past, has a more sophisticated style and wants options and choices in their homes. Whether they are selling the homes where they raised their children and heading to sunnier pastures, or buying a second home to accommodate their retired lifestyle, boomers are making an impact on housing trends.

Are the Know Before You Owe Rules Affecting You?

November 4, 2015

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has changed residential real estate as of last month. Contract forms and the terminology got a facelift. And the “Know Before You Owe” rules were added. A lender is now a creditor, and the borrower/buyer is a consumer. The initial Truth in Lending statement and Good Faith Estimate that has been used for a number of years is now the Loan Estimate.

When a person buys a single-family house, the lender needs basic information including income, assets, and monthly expenses before a firm loan commitment can be made. But if the person is buying a condominium unit, the lender needs additional information… Read more »

Having fresh, local food readily available is an incentive homebuyers are valuing. Henry Gordon-Smith, who advises Boston schools, builders and cities as they… Read more »

Is Stock Volatility Affecting Real Estate Momentum?

September 21, 2015

According to Realtor.com the median “days on market” is down 6% year-over-year and up 6% month-over-month at 75 days, which shows the season is naturally shifting to favor buyers as inventory moves more slowly than in spring and summer. A combination of market volatility pressuring rates and seasonal slowdown looks to be serving as an advantage to buyers as summer winds down. A temporary drop in demand in the luxury segment by those negatively affected by stock market instability might be just what strained would-be buyers need to gain the advantage in a market that has given sellers the upper hand so far this year. The hottest housing markets receive 1.8 to 3 times the number of views per listing compared… Read more »
