Warfield & Co June 2020 Market Report

 

SUMMER IS HERE.

I saw my first lightening bug last week! The sound of laughter and the smell of backyard grilling fills the air. Summer is officially here.  I don't know about you, but for me I have been a little out of sorts. Seasons blurred together - Winter crept into Spring and without the official end of school, I forgot what season we were in. (Not to mention that cold snap last week.)  The lightening bugs reconnected me with the joy of summer after all the uncertainty this Spring. I also made a summer fun bucket list.  One thing we have taken to is the Swamp Rabbit trail. We got his and hers bikes and a bike trailer for E & O. It is a great way to get outdoors, but stay safe. What are you excited about this summer? What will you put on your bucket list?

In the June newsletter, we will share our monthly market update, reconnect you with our CMA and Market Report services, share insights from our lending parters at Carolina Mortgage Professionals and I've also included a fun cocktail recipe and a list of places to watch fireworks this 4th.  As always, we are here for you. If there is additional information you would like to see included in our newsletter, please let us know. Simply respond to this email. This space is here to serve and support you!

Our best, 

Rob and Sarrin Warfield

MARKET REPORT

 

New Listings were down 24.5 percent to 1,524 and Pending Sales decreased 57.4 percent to 626.  Yes, the market has slowed a little, but that is expected in the midst of a pandemic.  It seems that Sellers are still slow to list thus listings are down.  That being said, if you are a seller, you are likely to have less competition in this market and it would be a great time to list. 

Prices moved higher as Average Sales Price was up 5.6 percent to $266,426. Days on Market decreased 3.5 percent to 59 days. 

Buyers have been quicker to return to the housing market in force than sellers, who have been showing a bit more reluctance to list their homes than is typical for this time of year. But trends are improving and as states and localities continue to moderate their COVID-19 policies, real estate activity is expected to continue to improve in the coming weeks.

As always, the changes in the market impact your home value.  For a free home valuation,

Landscaping tips to help sell your home and love your space

There are so many things to do when you’re getting ready to list your house. Don’t let the first thing people see be the last thing on your list! Your yard may need a good de-cluttering just like the inside of your home (think Curb Appeal).

-       Take stock of what’s overgrown, unhealthy, or out of place. Prune or remove what isn’t working. Even if you don’t have much to spend on new plants, simply taking out the old and adding fresh mulch will make a huge difference. Think about painting a room: even before you add in all the furniture, that empty room with fresh paint is much more peaceful than a cluttered room with dirty walls.

-       For an inexpensive pop of color that you can take with you when you sell, invest in two large pots filled with plants to flank the entrance. Work in threes: a filler, a thriller, and a spiller (something tall and eye catching, something to fill in the base, and something to spill over the side). Purple Fountain grass, Lavender, and Lemon Coral Sedum. Monrovia, Southern Living, and Proven Winners are all great resources for finding inspiration. The Clemson Extension is a fantastic resource for gardening in our area.

-       Mow and edge the lawn: you want potential buyers to know you take good care of you home and yard.

If you have the funds to update some of your landscape, start with the foundation plants, then look at the views out of the house towards the neighbors. Do you need to screen your neighbors shed? Or create a focal point out your kitchen window? Landscape design uses the same basic design principles: balance, rhythm, form, scale, color, texture. A good rule of thumb is to put the plants in odd numbers. Then choose something tall to anchor the corners of the house. Think of your planting bed in layers: shrubs in the back of the bed, then perennials, ornamental grasses, and ground cover.

And if you’re not looking to sell at the moment, but are spending a lot more time at home during this time of social isolation/COVID-19, now is a great time to focus on outdoor living. Your yard should be a natural extension of your home, with rooms and spaces designed for your lifestyle. Make a list of all the different elements you’d like to see in your dream yard: outdoor kitchen, fire pit, pool, play space for the kids, vegetable garden, etc. Create a concept plan by sketching where these elements might fit in your yard (an aerial photo from Google works great). Once you figure out what works and what doesn’t, determine the flow between your home and these spaces. Do you need pathways? Or can you walk through the lawn? If you love to entertain, go bigger than you think you need to when designing outdoor rooms.

Now is the perfect time to start planning, to get your hands dirty, and to love where you live.
