Market Slowdown

by Adam Hamblen

There is often a slowdown in real estate sales around the holidays as families look to stay put until around March of the next year. 

Some real estate agents welcome a slowdown because it eases their fears that prices were rising too fast.

The Phoenix market is having a bit of a hangover. We partied pretty hard, and you can’t go on partying like that all the time.  We saw huge price increases over the past 18 months. 

The common denominator with homes sitting on the market is “seller greed.”  The sellers pricing their homes too high and faced with rising interest rates, buyers aren’t going for higher prices.  The sellers don’t realize our 18 month crazy price increases are over.  Buyers want to lock something in before the rate gets away from them.  SO, if the seller will adjust   their price to FAIR MARKET VALUE, the buyers are there waiting to seal the deal.

While higher rates and prices are knocking marginal buyers out of the market, others are still able to get the home of their dream, if the seller is being reasonable and willing to sell their home at fair market value.

The recent increases in mortgage rates are NOT going to in any way, shape or form snuff out the housing recovery that we have been seeing.  The facts are that we now have more clients that have equity in their home and have the FREEDOM to make that move.  Our clients are now able to buy that NEW BUILD.  Yes, 20+ home builders are back building in Phoenix! 

For our clients that have become empty nesters in the decade can downsize!  The clients that have grown their family since the real estate boom, and literally been stuck in their smaller home, can now have the freedom to buy the larger home.

If you or someone you know wants to buy or sell their home, have them contact me to see what FREEDOMS they now have in our market.  We serve the greater Phoenix area but have connections with a RE/MAX agent in all fifty states and throughout the world.

America Flags for Our Community

by Adam Hamblen

What an amazing week we had at your local RE/MAX office in Peoria, Arizona.  The Hamblen Team at RE/MAX Renaissance placed over 34,000 American Flags in the front yards of the communities we have served for the past 9 years in North Glendale and North Peoria.  We received a huge response of THANK YOUs. 

Can you imagine waking up in the morning and on your drive out of your community, you see hundreds and hundreds of American Flags in the front yards of your neighbors.  We have 40 teenagers delivery them in the early morning hours.  We felt this would be a way to THANK our past, present and future clients for their loyalty to our team.  We are your neighborhood specialist and are always here to help you make that move!
