Each of these safe cities posts a violent crime rate far below one per 1,000 residents and property crimes lower than 20 per 1,000 residents.

MarketNsight Present MarketWatch Atlanta 07/05/2019
ATLANTA - MarketNsight recently hosted its biannual MarketWatch Atlanta event releasing data on the state of the Atlanta new home industry to a crowd of more than 400 home builders, developers, bankers, Realtors and others in the industry. MarketNsight and ViaSearch President John Hunt gave an overview of the Atlanta housing market and shared predictions for the remainder of the year. Hunt highlighted that Atlanta new home sales are up 12% May 2019 over last May.

Although Atlanta metro is experiencing bigger job growth, 50% less new homes are selling than the old normal. To reach first-time buyers, builders must build smaller and closer into the cities where millennials want to be. Homebuyers will still drive until they can buy, especially for schools. Suburban new home sales remain steady, especially in certain popular high school districts. West Forsyth, North Forsyth, North Paulding, East Coweta, Cherokee, Creekside – South Fulton, Forsyth Central, Sequoyah – Cherokee, Dacula – Gwinnett, Arche – Gwinnet, Apalachee – Barrow, Westlake – South Fulton, Lovejoy – Clayton, Jackson County and East Paulding high schools claim the top spots.

Perhaps some of the best news at the event came from Dr. Rajeev Dhawan who predicts that there will not be any more interest rate hikes for this year and that there might be a rate cut in December.

MarketNSight is focused on helping homebuilders and developers make smart decisions related to purchasing land and pricing product. Its groundbreaking Feasibility Matrix® systemizes the decision-making process and creates a one-stop-shop for gauging new home community feasibility including ranking by builder and subdivision and developed lot and raw land sales.COMMUNITIES Magazine Online is an annual co-sponsor of the MarketWatch event.

33% of People Plan to Invest in a Smart Home Device 06/20/2019
WASHINGTON, D.C.- People plan to invest more in IoT technology in their homes, according to a new survey report. Smart home devices – home appliances and devices equipped with IoT technology, such as a smart thermostat or smart security system – allow people to control and monitor their homes remotely.

Smart home devices allow people intimate access to information about their home from remote locations, which provides them peace-of-mind and a sense of security. Remote control and monitoring (37%) are the biggest benefits of owning a smart home device. The benefits people experience from smart home devices may impact the smart home devices they purchase. For example, smart security system users benefit most from the remote monitoring benefits of smart home devices. Thus, it’s unsurprising that smart security systems (50%) are the most commonly owned smart home device, ahead of smart thermostats (48%) and smart lights (46%).

People are concerned about the cost of smart home devices, though most people recognize that some smart home devices can reduce utility costs in their home. Cost (26%) is the primary concern people have with smart home devices over security vulnerability (21%). Interestingly, people also think that some smart home devices have cost benefits: More than half of people (53%) claim that smart home thermostats decrease utility costs. This is double the number who think a smart home thermostat increases utility costs (24%). Lowering utility costs (30%) is the primary benefit of owning a smart plug.

You can get off the fence because mortgage rates are now in the 4's with today's rate being between 3.5% for a 15-year fixed loan and at 4.00% for a 30-year fixed loan according to BankRate.com .

The demand for purchase mortgage applications grew higher as interest rates remain flat, Freddie Mac revealed in its latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey. The survey showed that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.08% last week, up from 4.06% the week before. However, it is much lower compared to 2018’s rate of 4.4%. Purchase mortgage applications demand rose to their second highest weekly increase over the past year due to an upsurge in refinance activity, according to Freddie Mac Chief Economist, Sam Khater. Overall, mortgage demand climbed to the highest level since the third quarter of 2016.

So now is a great time to put that new townhome under contract for late spring or summer move-in dates. Stop by The Gates at King Springs and tour their model home.

Why Was Quarter 4 Less-Than-Stellar? 03/13/2019
ATLANTA - Housing research and feasibility company MarketNsight recently announced pending sales in Atlanta for both new and existing homes fell 4th quarter 2018 over 4th quarter 2017. Pending sales are the leading indicator for housing demand, and this was the first year-to-year decline since 2014. Pending sales were down 6 percent for the quarter, with November being the worst month down 10 percent year-to-year. The decline was broad and occurred in both the North side and South side of Atlanta.

As predicted, the continuing lack of available inventory in lower price points is beginning to be a drag on both new and existing sales. The lack of inventory, anticipation of the December Federal Reserve rate hike and the Government shut down combined to put a damper on 4th quarter activity.

One positive note is that pending sales rebounded for the month of January, up 6 percent versus January 2018. MarketNsight expects its long-term forecast to hold, predicting moderate growth only limited by lack of available inventory in the right price points.

Now is a Great Time to Buy a Home 02/27/2019
ATLANTA - A new survey by Fannie Mae reports that the share of Americans who say it is a good time to buy a home increased 4 percentage points to 15 percent in January compared with December. The share is still down sizably from the start of 2018, when housing demand was soaring and home prices were rising at a much faster clip.

Home price gains have been shrinking since last summer and are now rising at the slowest pace in more than six years, according to CoreLogic. Consequently, the share of Americans who say home prices will go up fell 1 percentage point to 30 percent. That share has been declining for four straight months and is down a whopping 22 percentage points from a year ago, according to Fannie Mae.

Attitudes toward homebuying are improving this year because it appears that mortgage rates will not be increasing as much as previously expected. The share of those who expect rates to go up over the next year fell 3 percentage points to 53 percent in the Fannie Mae survey. The Federal Reserve has signaled it may not be as aggressive in hiking interest rates as previously forecast.

Cooler home prices and lower interest rates certainly increase affordability and help consumers feel better about buying, but the biggest change influencing that sentiment is consumers perception of their own wealth. The share of those who say their household income is significantly higher than it was a year ago increased 8 percentage points to 27 percent. That is 11 percentage points higher from the same time last year.

If you are on the fence about purchasing a new home or moving up from another home, consider this article from KeepingMattersCurrent.com

The rising of home prices over time, is how the majority of wealth is built in real estate. This is the home run you hear of when people make a large windfall of money. While prices fluctuate, over the long run real estate values have always gone up, always, and there is no reason to think that is going to change.

One thing to consider when it comes to real estate appreciation affecting your ROI is the fact that appreciation combined with leverage offers huge returns. If you buy a property for $200,000 and it appreciates to $220,000, your property had made you a 10% return.
