The total number of single family home sales in Rockingham and Strafford counties in 2015 (7,440 sales) was up 13% over 2014 (6,562 sales).  This is huge compared to the mere 1.6% increase in sales from 2013 to 2014.  As seen by the graph below, we saw the biggest increase in sales in the months of May through October, although most months had at least some increase.

 

Despite slight mortgage rate increases, we are already seeing many buyers and sellers in 2016.  If 2015 is any indication of what 2016 will bring, our predictions are correct in that we will see even more sales to ring in the best year our market has seen in a long time.

    Average sale prices in Rockingham and Strafford counties continue to creep up and hover right…

Your home deserves a little attention this year!  In addition to your resolutions to be more active, expand your family, or be more adventurous, add these easy “resolutions for your home” to your list!

Streamline the Stuff

Over the years we collect more and more stuff, so it’s time to seriously declutter.  Make it a priority to go through every room in your home within the month of January and donate anything that you don’t want or use, or is broken, to charity.  To make it last, think twice before buying more stuff going forward; do you really need that shiny new hammer or a fifth blue sweater?  Probably not.

Having trouble getting rid of things?  Have a friend help you.  A non-bias third party makes it a whole lot easier to say goodbye to

Sales were up by 10% this November with 1,145 single family homes closed for a 10% gain over last year. Sales in December are projected to continue the improvement we’ve seen month after month this year, which will likely put state-wide single family sales over 14,500, the highest amount of sales since the market peaked in 2005. The average sale price also continues to improve steadily reaching $276,682.

Demand for housing in Southern New Hampshire has largely drained supply of good standing homes. We fully expect this market to continue to improve and we expect to see home prices for new and existing homes continue to climb and the market continue to favor sellers. Additionally, we expect to see more and more buyers jumping state lines in order to

Let’s compare and start on the other side of the world. Real estate is big business and homes are smaller and more efficient. This trend is increasing and then of course comes into play where do you put your vehicles. Across the globe, the in parking spots in Sydney, Australia have become golden assets due to high land prices. The market is so strong there that houses are going for million plus. This and the rise in population have caused the cost of parking spaces to spike. On average, a strip of asphalt is selling for around $100,000. 

But how does this affect America and more importantly the seacoast of New Hampshire? 

ParkWhiz.com is an app and website that allows people to find parking spots close to where they are going and compare prices of

Statewide Trends, October 2015

Clearly, the single family home market surged late this spring and continued to rally right into the fall season.  Sales are up by an ecstatic 12% for the year so far and it certainly feels like November and December will continue to outperform last year. 

Based on this trend and from what we can see on the ground, there are some assumptions that should be taken very seriously.

1. Supply is way down. 

2. Demand is way up.

3. It’s a seller’s market and buyers will feel the pressure. 

4. Prices will continue rising.

 

Now that's a pretty happy trendline.

Sales were up by 21% this September versus last year, continuing the very hot summer trend right into the fall season. We typically see a dramatic dip in closings in September, with this year being an exception. We’re hearing mixed reviews about showings and inquiries so far in October, yet our new construction open houses have been quite busy. The beautiful weather we’ve experienced all summer and fall has definitely helped us keep our momentum up so we will continue pushing right through the fall selling season. Home prices continue to show improvement month to month.  While the number of homes transacting has reached very close to 2005 levels, the average home prices is still down by 8%.
