Red Report June

We are sharing an update on the Real Estate Market here in Middle TN to be sure you are up to date on how the market is trending. Steven Dotson, our President, put together this great update and I wanted to be sure to send over so you can stay up to date on what is happening in the market.


Summary from Steven Dotson:


While the National home sales seem to be cooling just a little bit, the local real-estate market continues to be hot as ever. National home sales are 3% lower for the year to date totals for 2018 vs 2017 compared to Locally, we are 5% higher for the year to date totals for 2018 vs 2017. I would contribute the difference in inventories. Locally, we have seen inventories increase so the sales have followed. Nationally, the inventories continue to be lower than previous years and the sales have followed with a slight decrease as well. Some economists have the opinion that higher prices and mortgage rates increasing have kept those on the lower end from being able to afford a home. Locally, we have such a low supply and high backed up demand for the lower end that is will take more price increases to slow down the lower end/first time buyer home sales.Most of the lower end listings continue to sell in days if not hours with multiple offers. We all guessed the sales would follow the inventories so that opinion continues to have validity by looking at the local and national trends.

How Much Do You Need to Make to Buy a Home in Your State?

How Much Do You Need to Make to Buy a Home in Your State? | Keeping Current Matters

It’s no mystery that cost of living varies drastically depending on where you live, so a new study by GOBankingRates set out to find out what minimum salary you would need to make in order to buy a median-priced home in each of the 50 states, and Washington, D.C.

States in the Midwest came out on top as most affordable, requiring the smallest salaries in order to buy a median-priced home. States with large metropolitan areas saw a bump in the average salary needed to buy with California, Washington, D.C., and Hawaii edging out all others with the highest salaries required.

Below is a map with the full results of the study:

How Much Do You Need to Make to Buy a Home in Your State? | Keeping Current Matters

GoBankingRates gave this advice to anyone considering a home purchase,

“Before you buy a home, it’s important to find out if you can afford the monthly mortgage payment. To do this, some financial experts recommend your housing costs — primarily your mortgage payments — shouldn’t consume more than 30 percent of your monthly income.”

As we recently reported, research from Zillow shows that historically, Americans had spent 21% of their income on owning a median-priced home. The latest data from the fourth quarter of 2017 shows that the percentage of income needed today is only 15.7%!

Bottom Line

If you are considering buying a home in TN, the suggested income is $42,000 for a home in the median range. Let us know if you would like to be connected to a lender for more information.
