For my latest appearance on “Your Carolina With Jack & Megan,” I was happy to be joined by Shelly Corlee, a client of mine, so she could give some insight into her experience working with my team. 

First, though, I shared a quick word about our market. We’ve entered a little bit of a slowdown now that we’re between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but the good news for sellers is that there are still a lot of buyers out there. Many sellers prefer to wait until January to start the home-selling process, but there’s a lot that can be done now so that you can hit the ground running once January does arrive. 

Moving on, Shelly has actually bought one home and sold two with my team, and she said we were wonderful to work with. She and her husband both work full-time, and as busy as her household gets, she said it was nice to work with an agent such as myself who’s experienced and brings a degree of calmness to the transaction. From a business perspective, they needed an expert who could tell them exactly what to do and how to do it.
 


“That’s been one of the greatest things in working with him,” she said. “He makes it very easy.”

As Megan then pointed out, that’s one of the reasons people hire Realtors in the first place: They don’t want to list the home themselves. Not only can we take the pressure off of you, but we can also help you net more money. 


From a business perspective, they needed an expert who could tell them exactly what to do and how to do it.

During Shelly and her husband’s first home sale, they chose to list it at a very high price, which I counseled against. The sale took a lot longer for them, and the home eventually sold for the price I wanted them to list it in the first place. For their next home sale, though, we had two offers within five days of listing and secured a great price.

As we make our way through August, now’s a great time to be a buyer in our market, and there are two big reasons why.

First of all, interest rates are absolutely unbelievable right now. Last November, they were just under 5%, but now they’re at 3.5%. This is also great news for new homeowners, because if you bought your home back then, you can refinance and save a ton of money


If you shop for homes now, you might come across a seller who’s had their home on the market all summer long and is all the more eager to get a deal done. 

For example, if your home cost $200,000 and you used a 30-year loan at 4.94% to purchase it while putting $10,000 down, your monthly loan payment would be $1,013.01. If you refinanced at 3.6%, that would drop your loan payment down to $863.83 per month. Over the life of your loan, that’s a savings of over $30,000.

There’s also less demand and less competition from other would-be homebuyers. With the school year starting up again, a lot of people are too busy doing other things to shop for homes. Additionally, if you shop for homes now, you might come across a seller who’s had their home on the market all summer long and is all the more eager to get a deal done.

If you have any more questions about our market or you’re ready to buy your next home, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d love to help you.

We’re halfway through 2019, and the Greenville market is still very hot. To get a more exact idea of where things stand, let’s look at the latest year-over-year numbers.

First, inventory is up 6%. If you’re a buyer, this means you have more options to choose from. If you’re a seller, you have more competition to deal with, which means you have to price your home accordingly.

The number of home sales have also increased compared to last year, which means more buyers are out and about. The average home price, meanwhile, rose 3%, and it’s getting closer and closer to the $250,000 price point. If you can imagine, the average price for a Greenville home just five years ago was under $200,000. 



If you’re a buyer, this means you have more options to choose from.

Lastly, the average days on market for homes has increased as well, which is a reflection of the increase in inventory.

The Greenville market is unique in that it’s busy all 12 months out of the year, but if you look at the average number of home sales per month, the best time to sell is between June and September.
