Did you know? More than half of the privately-owned land in Scotland is owned by a tight circle of less than 500 people. While some, like the Macpherson-Fletchers, are selling up and cashing in, many of these sporting estates still exist and have been in the same family for hundreds of years.*

Housing inventory is at an all-time low. There are 39% fewer homes for sale today than at this time last year, and buyer demand continues to set records. Zillow recently reported:

“Newly pending sales are up 25.5% compared to the same week last year, the highest year-over-year increase in the weekly Zillow database.”

Whenever there is a shortage in supply of an item that’s in high demand, the price of that item increases. That’s exactly what’s happening in the real estate market right now. CoreLogic’s latest Home Price Index reports that values have increased by 5.5% over the last year.

This is great news if you’re planning to sell your house; on the other hand, as either a first-time or repeat buyer, this may instead seem like troubling news. However, purchasers should realize that the price of a house is not as important as the cost. Let’s break it down.

There are several factors that influence the cost of a home. The two major ones are the price of the home and the interest rate at which a buyer can borrow the funds necessary to purchase the home.

Last week, Freddie Mac announced that the average interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 2.87%. At this time last year, the rate was 3.73%. Let’s use an example to see how that difference impacts the true cost of a home.

Assume you purchased a home last year and took out a $250,000 mortgage. As mentioned above, home values have increased by 5.5% over the last year. To buy that same home this year, you would need to take out a mortgage of $263,750.

How will your monthly mortgage payment change based on today’s lower mortgage rate?

This table calculates the difference in your monthly payment:
That’s a savings of $61 monthly, which adds up to $732 annually and $21,960 over the life of the loan.

Bottom Line

Even though home values have appreciated, it’s a great time to buy a home because mortgage rates are at historic lows.

Earlier this year, many economists and market analysts were predicting an apocalyptic financial downturn that would potentially rattle the U.S. economy for years to come. They immediately started to compare it to the Great Depression of a century ago. Six months later, the economy is still trying to stabilize, but it is evident that the country will not face the total devastation projected by some. As we continue to battle the pandemic, forecasts are now being revised upward. The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) just reported:


“The U.S. economy and labor market are recovering from the coronavirus-related downturn more quickly than previously expected, economists said in a monthly survey.

Business and academic economists polled by The Wall Street Journal expect gross domestic product to increase at an annualized rate of 23.9% in the third quarter. That is up sharply from an expectation of an 18.3% growth rate in the previous survey.”

What Shape Will the Recovery Take?

Economists have historically cast economic recoveries in the form of one of four letters – V, U, W, or L.

A V-shaped recovery is all about the speed of the recovery. This quick recovery is treated as the best-case scenario for any economy that enters a recession. NOTE: Economists are now also using a new term for this type of recovery called the “Nike Swoosh.” It is a form of the V-shape that may take several months to recover, thus resembling the Nike Swoosh logo.

A U-shaped recovery is when the economy experiences a sharp fall into a recession, like the V-shaped scenario. In this case, however, the economy remains depressed for a longer period of time, possibly several years, before growth starts to pick back up again.

A W-shaped recovery can look like an economy is undergoing a V-shaped recovery until it plunges into a second, often smaller, contraction before fully recovering to pre-recession levels.

An L-shaped recovery is seen as the worst-case scenario. Although the economy returns to growth, it is at a much lower base than pre-recession levels, which means it takes significantly longer to fully recover.

Many experts predicted that this would be a dreaded L-shaped recovery, like the 2008 recession that followed the housing market collapse. Fortunately, that does not seem to be the case.

The same WSJ survey mentioned above asked the economists which letter this recovery will most resemble. Here are the results:

What About the Unemployment Numbers?

It’s difficult to speak positively about a jobs report that shows millions of Americans are still out of work. However, when we compare it to many forecasts from earlier this year, the numbers are much better than most experts expected. There was talk of numbers that would rival the Great Depression when the nation suffered through four consecutive years of unemployment over 20%.

The first report after the 2020 shutdown did show a 14.7% unemployment rate, but much to the surprise of many analysts, the rate has decreased each of the last three months and is now in the single digits (8.4%).

Economist Jason Furman, Professor at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government and the Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers during the previous administration, recently put it into context:

“An unemployment rate of 8.4% is much lower than most anyone would have thought it a few months ago. It is still a bad recession but not a historically unprecedented event or one we need to go back to the Great Depression for comparison.”

The economists surveyed by the WSJ also forecasted unemployment rates going forward:

2021: 6.3%
2022: 5.2%
2023: 4.9%

The following table shows how the current employment situation compares to other major disruptions in our economy:

Bottom Line

The economic recovery still has a long way to go. So far, we are doing much better than most thought would be possible.

How Low Inventory May Impact the Housing Market This Fall. Real estate continues to be called the ‘bright spot’ in the current economy, but there’s one thing that may hold the housing market back from achieving its full potential this year: the lack of homes for sale.

Buyers are actively searching for and purchasing homes, looking to capitalize on today’s historically low interest rates, but there just aren’t enough houses for sale to meet that growing need. Sam Khater, Chief Economist at Freddie Mac, explains:

“Mortgage rates have hit another record low due to a late summer slowdown in the economic recovery…These low rates have ignited robust purchase demand activity…However, heading into the fall it will be difficult to sustain the growth momentum in purchases because the lack of supply is already exhibiting a constraint on sales activity.”

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), right now, unsold inventory sits at a 3.1-month supply at the current sales pace. To have a balanced market where there are enough homes for sale to meet buyer demand, the market needs inventory for 6 months. Today, we’re nowhere near where that number needs to be. If the trend continues, it will get even harder to find homes to purchase this fall, and that may slow down potential buyers. Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at realtor.com, notes:

“The overall lack of sustained new listings growth could put a dent in fall home sales despite high interest from home shoppers, because new listings are key to home sales.”

The realtor.com Weekly Recovery Report keeps an eye on the number of listings coming into the market (houses available for sale) and the total number of listings staying in the market compared to the previous year (See graph below):
Buyers are clearly scooping up homes faster than they’re being put up for sale. The number of total listings (the orange line) continues to decline even as new listings (the blue line) are coming to the market. Why? Javier Vivas, Director of Economic Research at realtor.com, notes:

“The post-pandemic period has brought a record number of homebuyers back into the market, but it’s also failed to bring a consistent number of sellers back. Homes are selling faster, and sales are still on an upward trend, but rapidly disappearing inventory also means more home shoppers are being priced out. If we don’t see material improvement to supply in the next few weeks, we could see the number of transactions begin to dwindle again even as the lineup of buyers continues to grow.”

Does this mean it’s a good time to sell?

Yes. If you’re thinking about selling your house, this fall is a great time to make it happen. There are plenty of buyers looking for homes to purchase because they want to take advantage of low interest rates. Realtors are also reporting an average of 3 offers per house and an increase in bidding wars, meaning the demand is there and the opportunity to sell for the most favorable terms is in your favor as a seller.

Bottom Line

If you’re considering selling your house, this is the perfect time to connect so we can talk about how you can benefit from the market trends in our local area.

According to realtor.com, only 52% of today's active home shoppers are getting pre-approved for a mortgage, which means about half of buyers are missing out on this important step. Getting pre-approved doesn't just give you an idea of how much house you can afford, it also lets sellers know you're a serious buyer.

With more houses receiving multiple offers, a pre-approval letter can be a key factor in a bidding war, and you don’t want to miss out.

DM us to learn more about why pre-approval with a lender is critical in today’s competitive market.

Is Now a Good Time to Move? How long have you lived in your current home? If it’s been a while, you may be thinking about moving. According to the latest Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), in 2019, homeowners were living in their homes for an average of 10 years. That’s a long time to time to be in one place, considering the average length of time homeowners used to stay put hovered closer to 6 years.

With today’s changing homebuyer needs, especially given how the current health crisis has altered our daily lifestyles, many homeowners are reconsidering where they’re at and thinking about moving to a home with more space for their families. Here’s why it might be a great time to make that happen.

The real estate market has changed in many ways over the past 10 years, and current homeowners are earning much more equity today than they used to have. According to CoreLogic, in the first quarter of 2020 alone, the average homeowner gained approximately $9,600 in equity. If you’re considering selling your house right now, you may have accumulated more equity to put toward a move than you realize.

Dialing back 10 years, many homeowners also locked in a fairly low mortgage rate. In 2010, the average rate was only 4.09%. This motivated homeowners to stay in their houses longer than usual to keep their rate low, rather than moving. Just last Thursday, however, average mortgage rates hit a new historic low at 2.86%. Sam Khater, Chief Economist at Freddie Mac explains:

“Mortgage rates have hit another record low due to a late summer slowdown in the economic recovery…These low rates have ignited robust purchase demand activity, which is up twenty-five percent from a year ago and has been growing at double digit rates for four consecutive months.”

Ten years ago, we couldn’t have imagined a mortgage rate under 3%. Looking at the math today, making a move into a new home and locking in a significantly lower rate than you have now could save you greatly on a monthly basis, and over the life of your loan (See chart below):
As the example shows, you can save a substantial amount every month if you qualify for today’s low mortgage rate, and the savings can really add up over the life of a 30-year fixed-rate loan.

Bottom Line

As a homeowner, you have a huge opportunity to move up right now. Whether you want to save more each month or get more home for your money based on your family’s changing needs, it’s a great time to connect to discuss the market in our area. Buyers are actively looking for more homes to buy, and you can win big by making a move if the time is right for you.

3 things marketers can do to accelerate digital marketing transformation

Let first-party data be your guide
One of the most immediate changes that the pandemic caused is a surge in people going online to work, shop, connect with friends, and handle other everyday essentials. It also caused unexpected shifts in what people are buying and which brands they are buying from. Many brands are seeing an influx of first-time customers.

Connect your data to unlock audience insights and improve ROI
As consumer needs and behaviors change rapidly, the path to purchase is also in flux. This presents unique challenges that vary by industry and geography, so there is no one-size-fits-all approach to adequately respond.

Prioritize cross-functional collaboration and strategic partnerships
Making better use of data isn’t solely a technical capability; there is an organizational component to it as well. Simply put, making the most out of your data requires talent with deep knowledge of how to use tools and provide insights.

For digital marketing teams that haven’t adopted agile frameworks and iterative fail-fast cultures, now is the time.

Becoming more digitally mature will ensure that your company has the technical and organizational muscle to support long-term success.

Why Is It so Important to Be Pre-Approved in the Homebuying Process? You may have heard that pre-approval is a great first step in the homebuying process. But why is it so important? When looking for a home, the temptation to fall in love with a house that’s outside your budget is very real. So, before you start shopping around, it’s helpful to know your price range, what you’re comfortable within a monthly mortgage payment, and ultimately how much money you can borrow for your loan. Pre-approval from a lender is the only way to do this.

According to a recent survey from realtor.com, many buyers are making the mistake of skipping the pre-approval step in the homebuying process:

“Of over 2,000 active home shoppers who plan to purchase a home in the next 12 months, only 52% obtained a pre-approval letter before beginning their home search, which means nearly half of home buyers are missing this crucial piece of paperwork.”

This paperwork (the pre-approval letter) shows sellers you’re a qualified buyer, something that can really help you stand out from the crowd in the current ultra-competitive market.

How competitive is today’s market? Extremely – especially among buyers.

With limited inventory, there are many more buyers than sellers right now, and that’s fueling the competition. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), homes are receiving an average of 2.9 offers for sellers to negotiate, so bidding wars are heating up.

Pre-approval shows homeowners you’re a serious buyer. It helps you stand out from the crowd if you get into a multiple-offer scenario, and these days, it’s likely. When a seller knows you’re qualified to buy the home, you’re in a better position to potentially win the bidding war and land the home of your dreams.

Danielle Hale, Chief Economist for realtor.com notes:

“For ‘a buyer in a competitive market, it’s typically essential to have pre-approval done in order to submit an offer, so getting it done before you even look at homes is a smart move that will enable a buyer to move fast to put an offer in on the right home.’”

In addition, today’s housing market is also changing from moment to moment. Interest rates are low, prices are going up, and lending institutions are regularly updating their standards. You’re going to need guidance to navigate these waters, so it’s important to have a team of professionals (a loan officer and a real estate agent) making sure you take the right steps along the way and can show your qualifications as a buyer at the time you find a home to purchase.

Bottom Line
In a competitive market with low inventory, a pre-approval letter is a game-changing piece of the homebuying process. If you’re ready to buy this year, let’s connect before you start searching for a home.

The year 2020 will be remembered as one of the most challenging times of our lives. A worldwide pandemic, a recession causing historic unemployment, and a level of social unrest perhaps never seen before have all changed the way we live. Only the real estate market seems to be unaffected, as a new forecast projects there may be more homes purchased this year than last year.

How Will the Presidential Election Impact Real Estate? As we come to the end of this tumultuous year, we’re preparing for perhaps the most contentious presidential election of the century. Today, it’s important to look at the impact past presidential election years have had on the real estate market.

Is there a drop-off in home sales during a presidential election year?

BTIG, a research and analysis company, looked at new home sales from 1963 through 2019 in their report titled One House, Two House, Red House, Blue House. They noted that in non-presidential years, there is a -9.8% decrease in November compared to October. This is the normal seasonality of the market, with a slowdown in activity that’s usually seen in fall and winter.

However, it also revealed that in presidential election years, the typical drop increases to -15%. The report explains why:

“This may indicate that potential homebuyers may become more cautious in the face of national election uncertainty.”

Are those sales lost forever?

No. BTIG determined:

“This caution is temporary, and ultimately results in deferred sales, as the economy, jobs, interest rates and consumer confidence all have far more meaningful roles in the home purchase decision than a Presidential election result in the months that follow.”

In a separate study done by Meyers Research & Zonda, Ali Wolf, Chief Economist, agrees that those purchases are just delayed until after the election:

“History suggests that the slowdown is largely concentrated in the month of November. In fact, the year after a presidential election is the best of the four-year cycle. This suggests that demand for new housing is not lost because of election uncertainty, rather it gets pushed out to the following year.”

Will it matter who is elected?

To some degree, but not in the overall number of home sales. As mentioned above, consumer confidence plays a significant role in a family’s desire to buy a home. How may consumer confidence impact the housing market post-election? The BTIG report covered that as well:

“A change in administration might benefit trailing blue county housing dynamics. The re-election of President Trump could continue to propel red county outperformance.”

Again, overall sales should not be impacted in a significant way.

Bottom Line

If mortgage rates remain near all-time lows, the economy continues to recover, and unemployment continues to decrease, the real estate market should remain strong up to and past the election.

The year 2020 will certainly be one to remember, with new realities and norms that changed the way we live. This year’s real estate market is certainly no exception to that shift, with historic highlights continuing to break records and challenge what many thought possible in the housing market. Here’s a look at four key areas that are fundamentally defining the market this year.

Housing Market Recovery

The economy was intentionally put on pause this spring in response to the COVID-19 health crisis. Many aspects of the common real estate transaction were placed on hold at the same time. Thankfully, technology and innovation helped the industry power forward, and business gradually ramped back up as shelter-in-place orders were lifted.

The result? Total transformation of the market from rock-bottom lows to exceptional highs. Today, the housing recovery is being called truly remarkable by many experts and is far exceeding expectations. From pending home sales to purchase applications, buyers are back in business and homes are selling – fast.

According to the Housing Market Recovery Index by realtor.com, the market has surpassed pre-pandemic levels, and has regained the strength we remember from February of this year (See graph below):

Record-Breaking Mortgage Rates

Historically low mortgage rates are another 2020 game-changer. Today’s low rate is one of the big motivating factors bringing buyers back into the market. The average rate reached an all-time low on multiple occasions this year, and it continues to hover in record-low territory.

When rates are this low, buyers have a huge opportunity to get more for their money when purchasing a home, something many are eager to find while continuing to spend more time than expected at home this year, and likely beyond.

Continued Home Price Appreciation

One of the key drivers of home price appreciation this year is historically low inventory. Inventory was low going into the pandemic, and it is still sitting well below the level needed for a normal market. Although sellers are slowly making their way back into the game, buyers are scooping up homes faster than they’re coming up for sale.

This is a classic supply and demand scenario, forcing home prices to rise. Selling something when there is a higher demand for what is available naturally bumps up the price. If you’re ready to sell your house today, this may be the optimal time to make your move. As Bill Banfield, EVP of Capital Markets at Quicken Loans, notes:

“The pandemic has not stopped the consistent home price growth we have witnessed in recent years.” 

Increasing Affordability

Even as home prices continue to rise, affordability is working in favor of today’s homebuyers. According to many experts, rates this low are off-setting rising home prices, which increases buyer purchasing power – an opportunity not to be missed, especially if your family’s needs have changed. If you now need space for a home office, gym, virtual classroom, and more, it may be time to reconsider your current house.

According to Mortgage News Daily:

“Those shopping for a home can afford 10 percent more home than they could have one year ago while keeping their monthly payment unchanged. This translates into nearly $32,000 more buying power.”

Bottom Line

With mortgage rates hitting historic lows, home prices appreciating, affordability rising, and the market recovering like no other, 2020 has been quite a year for real estate – perhaps one we’ve never seen before and may never see again. Let’s connect today if you’re ready to take advantage of this year’s record-breaking opportunities.

"The housing market is well past the recovery phase and is now booming with higher home sales compared to the pre-pandemic days…With the sizable shift in remote work, current homeowners are looking for larger homes and this will lead to a secondary level of demand even into 2021." -Lawrence Yun

Finding that your current home no longer meets your family's needs? You're not alone. If you need to move up sooner rather than later, today's high buyer demand can be a great motivator to sell your house.

DM us your questions about navigating the current market so we can get you started on the right foot forward.

Did you know? A study revealed that homes described using the words "gorgeous" or "beautiful" statistically sold 15 percent faster than other properties. But wait, that doesn't mean luxury home sellers should pad out their descriptions with synonyms of "stunning." While "beautiful" appeals to the average home buyer, the wealthy ones seem to be more attracted to homes listed as "private."*

We're seeing housing play a critical role in economic recovery.

"Despite the crippling and ongoing coronavirus pandemic, millions out of work, a recession, a national reckoning over systemic racism, and a highly contentious presidential election just around the corner (we’ve got to remember that), the residential real estate market is staging an astonishing rebound." - realtor.com

It's obvious that home sales affect our economic recovery positively. But if we want to really look at what's going on we have to start to look at behavior.

We followed showing times since the start of this to say that's a leading indicator of people going out and looking at houses. The normalization and acceleration is extraordinary.

We saw this dip down in late March and April but we're coming back, and now people are saying, you know what, we're going to go out and look at that house. The reasons that people have for looking for a home have changed or have grown, or become greater during this time.

Ad Work for Hank's Filling Station

Do you know the history of the name, Hank? Not us, Hank's Filling Station ... well, it is ... but, do you know where the name Hank's came from? Sit back a minute and let us tell you a story.

Many have asked us where the name "Hank's Filling Station" originated. This is the story of local racing and car enthusiast James "Hank" Hankins who inspired the name and concept behind Hank's Filling Station.

James Hankins was born in Darlington, South Carolina in 1930. He left Darlington at an early age, learning the auto body repair and painting craft up north before settling in Norfolk, Virginia where the skills of his craft grew and he became affectionately known as "Hank" Hankins. In 1958, Hank opened a successful auto paint and body repair shop in Norfolk which was his first foray into building and driving race cars and eventually drag racing. His body repair and painting skills taught him to appreciate the fine craftsmanship of drag racing cars, while the quest for more power and faster speeds satisfied his mechanical needs.

Although Hank's passion for racing was strong, his love of his family was equally so. Hank and his wife, Georgia Mae, raised nine children, all while juggling drag racing and several businesses including Hank's Curb Service Store. Although Hank did not have much spare time, he always found time for his family.

Hank began drag racing at nearby tracks in Virginia and North Carolina so he could operate his business without undue time away. Eventually, Hank met and befriended Dan Weis, a Virginia racer who later gained fame as the promoter of Richmond Dragway and had a reputation for booking top name, traveling professional racers. Weis was also fond of promoting a local hometown hero driver against the visiting traveler. Many times the local hero was Hank, who always put on a good show and sometimes even upset the professional racers.

Always the underdog, Hank challenged his opponents with his homebuilt cars – the "Hooter Scooter" and "The Trader." The crowds would roar their approval whenever Hank would enter the track. Weis loved to pit the "hometown hero" against the national star and Hank raced many stars including Dick Landy, Ronnie Sox, Tom Sturm, Don Gay and even Richard Petty. Thanks to Hank's cunningly sharp driving, many times he would even outrun the professional racers. The successful combination of Hank's cars and his driving nabbed him several Super Stock Eliminator wins at Virginia and North Carolina tracks. His competitiveness and clean, hard running cars also earned Hank a favorable reputation among fellow racers, track operators and officials.

After an untimely and serious crash at Roxboro, North Carolina left Hank injured and his race car destroyed, he decided to revise his involvement with drag racing, becoming the manager-promoter at Suffolk Dragway. A former airfield with concrete runways, Suffolk was famous for its excellent traction. Hank managed Suffolk Dragway until 1972 and in that time he created many standout and enduring events such as the hugely successful "Little Guy Nationals," a breakthrough event that featured Sportsman racers instead of big-name nitro pro heroes, and the "Dixie Drag Classics," an event that ran for multiple years at Suffolk. During this period, Hank also took on the promotion and operation of Langley Speedway, a storied short circle track in Hampton, Virginia. Finally, in 1973 Hank took over Virginia Beach Dragway which he managed until 1980.

Hank Hankins gave many Virginia and North Carolina racers their "big break," the chance at moving up the ladder to faster and more lucrative racing. Some of these racers even became successful pro racers. After a non-stop life of never standing still, James "Hank" Hankins earned a much-deserved rest when he passed away November 26, 1994, in his hometown of Norfolk, Virginia. In 2016, the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame respectfully inducted James "Hank" Hankins to its ranks.

Hank's Filling Station, which inhabits the same location as the original Hank's Curb Service Store, is proud to pay tribute to local hero Hank Hankins, whose lifetime and career achievements touched tens of thousands of individuals.

*Story adapted from "Hank Hankins' Non-Stop Journey As A Larger-Than-Life Drag Racing Legend" by Jim Hill posted May 2, 2017 on eastcoastdragtimeshalloffame.com

And there you have it boys and girls – the story of Hank's.

Here is a look at consumer spending as compared to January 1st. You can see clearly that it's a tale of different industries.

If you're in the grocery business over the last several months with everybody eating at home and people not being able to go out into restaurants and some of those in many, many states shut down during the quarantine, you're doing well. But other industries have fallen catastrophically.

We'll show later in this series that the real estate industry across most geographic areas has exploded which should affect your home selling or buying activities. Stay tuned to our 7pm daily market / economic updates.

Originally, some housing industry analysts were concerned that the mortgage forbearance program (which allows families to delay payments to a later date) could lead to an increase in foreclosures when forbearances end. Some even worried that we might relive the 2006-2008 housing crash all over again. Once you examine the data, however, that seems unlikely.

As reported by Odeta Kushi, Deputy Chief Economist for First American:

“Despite the federal foreclosure moratorium, there were fears that up to 30% of homeowners would require forbearance, ultimately leading to a foreclosure tsunami. Forbearance did not hit 30%, but rather peaked at 8.6% and has been steadily falling since.”

According to the most current data from Black Knight, the percentage of homes in forbearance has fallen to 7.4%. The report also gives the decrease in raw numbers:

“The overall trend of incremental improvement in the number of mortgages in active forbearance continues. According to the latest data from Black Knight’s McDash Flash Forbearance Tracker, the number of mortgages in active forbearance fell by another 71,000 over the past week, pushing the total under 4 million for the first time since early May.”

Here’s a graph showing the decline in forbearances over the last several months:
The report also explains that across the board, overall forbearance activity fell with 10% fewer new forbearance requests and nearly 40% fewer renewals.

What about potential foreclosures once forbearances end?

Kushi also addresses this question:

“There are two main reasons why this crisis is unlikely to produce a wave of foreclosures similar to the 2008 recession. First, the housing market is in a much stronger position compared with a decade ago. Accompanied by more rigorous lending standards, the household debt-to-income ratio is at a four-decade low and household equity near a three-decade high. Indeed, thus far, MBA data indicates that the majority of homeowners who took advantage of forbearance programs are either staying current on their mortgage or paying off the loan through a home sale or a refinance. Second, this service sector-driven recession is disproportionately impacting renters.”

There is one potential challenge

Today, the options available to homeowners will prevent a large spike in foreclosures. That’s good not just for those families impacted, but for the overall housing market. A recent study by Fannie Mae, however, reveals that many Americans are not aware of the options they have.

It’s imperative for potentially impacted families to better understand the mortgage relief programs available to them, for their personal housing situation and for the overall real estate market.

Bottom Line

If Americans fully understand their options and make good choices regarding those options, the current economic slowdown does not need to lead to mass foreclosures.

Did you know? The United States purchased Alaska from Russia in 1867 for a mere $7.2 million – or the equivalent of more than $185 million today. Still a paltry sum for the northernmost and westernmost state in the U.S.*

Meet Matthew Bosch, an agent at Upscale Avenues Realty Group who is ready to serve your home selling or buying needs.

How can you help me narrow down my choices and fit house hunting into my busy schedule?

I listen carefully and want to really get to know the client and what they like to have when shopping for your home. I really enjoy getting to know the client's personality and lifestyle so I know what will fit best for them! This will limit the amount of time we spend looking for a home so no time is wasted.

How do you help buyers come to a decision?

At the end of the day it's going to be the buyer's decision. I believe the buyer knows as soon as they walk in the home if it's the one. But again I pay attention to what the client says and remind them of each property and what they say. Sometimes it becomes a little overwhelming to see multiple homes in one day so keeping the client confident in making a decision is important to me. At the end of the day this is going to be the clients largest investment/purchase they will make.

What marketing tools will you use to help me?

The biggest marketing tool I believe in is social media. It reaches out to so many people now. I mean it's 2020; everyone is staring at their phones!

Does the car in the driveway come with the house?

I mean everything is negotiable. Or we can head to the dealership now!

Are there any ghosts in the house?

We can always go get a Ouija Board and see!

Meet Matthew Bosch

As a Virginia Beach native growing up in the area, Matthew has had over 30 years to get to know Hampton Roads and all it has to offer. He has devoted his career in customer service & management most of his life, developing a focused commitment to his team members and most significantly his clients.

Matt's pristine attention to detail, and his extraordinary observances makes him a perfect partner when buying and selling a home. He is known for his strong sense of ethics, always keeping the best intentions for the buyer or seller.

Whether you're looking to buy, sell, or just need advice, call Matt today!

Let's enjoy National Rum Day together. Do you have a favorite rum cocktail?

In the 17th century, hard-working slaves on Caribbean sugarcane plantations were the first to discover rum. They detected molasses as a byproduct of leftover sugar that transformed into alcohol after refining and fermenting. Eventually, distilleries caught on – turning rum production into a major global business. The Royal British Navy, as well as rogues and pirates, drank rum by the gallon. On National Rum Day, mix up a batch of your favorite rum-based cocktails, sing a sea shanty or two and crush the party! source: nationaltoday.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Virginia Beach, Virginia – August 2020) Real Estate Information Network Inc. (REIN), the regional Multiple
Listing Service, reports a year-over-year rise in the total number of new listings added to the market in July
2020, up 2.79% from July 2019 with 4,204 new listings. Despite this increase, overall residential active listings
are down 38.40% year-over-year for July, with just 5,576 active homes for sale vs. 9,052 last year. Strong
and steady sales have reduced the average days on market for a listing from 46 days in July 2019 to 41 days
in July 2020. The current months’ supply of inventory is 2.19 months, the lowest recording since REIN began
tracking this statistic in January 2009. Six months is considered a balanced market.

In July 2020, residential pending sales rose a significant 25.33% compared to July 2019, with 3,746 homes
going under contract. Residential settled sales also saw a steady increase, rising 14.21% year-over-year for
July. The residential median sales price for July 2020 was $275,000, up 7.84% from the same period of time
last year, when it was $255,000.

"The Hampton Roads region is seeing unprecedented sales activity in both existing and new construction
properties. This trend will continue for the foreseeable future, due in part to low inventory, lifestyle changes,
more competition with multiple offers being received, and interest rates as low as we have ever seen, resulting
in higher overall sales activity and prices," said Barry Nachman, President of REIN. "The downward trend in
inventory is, of course, due to increased sales, as well as some apprehension on the part of sellers who may
be uncomfortable allowing others into their homes due to COVID-19."

In July 2020, distressed homes (foreclosures and short sales) in the Hampton Roads region accounted for
3.09% of all residential settled sales, down 2.32% year-over-year and the lowest percentage of sales since
REIN began recording distressed statistics.

If you're like a lot of beer drinkers in the world, craft beer is not your favorite. That's okay. We can dig it. We dig it so much that we partnered with our friends at Wasserhund Brewing Company to create a helles lager* just for you: Hank's Trader Lager. Craft drinker – not a craft drinker – doesn't matter. You're going to like this on your taste buds.

Stop in to enjoy the day in our backyard** or give us a quick call at 757-351-3941 for takeout or hit us online at HANKSONTHEGO.COM for food delivery. We'll have your hot deliciousness ready for you.

*German-Style Helles
A beer for beer lovers, the German-style helles is a malt accented lager beer that balances a pleasant malt sweetness and body with floral Noble hops and restrained bitterness. The helles is a masterclass in restraint, subtly and drinkability which makes it an enduring style for true beer lovers and an elusive style for craft brewers to recreate. The German helles reminds beer lovers that the simple things in life are usually the most rewarding and worth pursuing.

It feels a bit awkward to say this, but I think I watched last night the best show ESPN has ever shown. It was a 2018 Eagles live concert at the Forum in Los Angeles, not a sporting event. The Eagles closed out the show with Hotel California, Rocky Mountain Way, and Desperado. Wow!

It's almost unfair that the Eagles picked up Vince Gill to tour with them to replace the recently deceased Glenn Frey, adding to an immensely talented harmonizing southern rock band of Don Henley, Deacon Frey, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit.

The Eagles had 5 number 1 hits: "Best of My Love" (1975), "One Of These Nights" (1975), "New Kid In Town" (1977), "Hotel California" (1977), and "Heartache Tonight" (1979).

How lucky am I to be a kid of the 70s, the greatest music era ever!

Digital platforms are not always the right choice. As humans, we tend to live in our own small bubble thinking that everyone thinks like us. Not true.

If my client is a financial advisor servicing high net-worth individuals, TicToc will not be in our marketing efforts. Maybe business periodicals will.

If my client is a mortgage broker targeting lendees toward the millions range, Snapchat will not be in our marketing efforts. Maybe public radio will.

If my client is a transportation agency whose customers are generally below the poverty line, LinkedIn will not be in our marketing efforts. Maybe newspapers will.

Knowing my customer is my business. Knowing your customer is my priority.

A service agency's #1 priority is its customers. Doesn't matter the industry. If you're providing a service to a customer, failing to service them sufficiently and cordially will be disastrous for your organization.

In my mind right now are public transit agencies. Understanding your customer and marketing to their needs should be a priority for you, maybe even your #1 priority.

Don't be that guy. Don't think marketing to your customer is not important. They want to hear from you proactively and they want to hear how you're providing services for their needs.

Even though this is the most important trait necessary for success, it is hardly ever mentioned when we talk working remote in the future.

As leaders, we should do everything possible to help our teams enjoy success. Toward that end, we must understand that there are personalities that will not allow success via the remote path, and there are junior skillsets that require more oversight than remote supervision can provide, and there are creatives that require more personal interaction than remote access permits.

There are a good number of exceptions that are never mentioned in the cheerleading for a remote work environment. We should be fair and realistic in our expectations and not set blanket policies that have no chance of success.

If you're a mortgage broker, I don't need you telling me that rates are at an all-time low.

1) I already know that because I've done my research; and 2) the previous two thousand mortgage lenders told me the same thing on LinkedIn.

I read an article this morning that repeated, "73% of CEOs think marketers lack credibility." I have to ask, why? Credibility, as in trust? If you have a chief on your executive team that you do not trust, what does that say about you as a CEO?

Trust is important to us (marketers). That our customers trust the content of our ads is a must. Consumer trust is the fundamental criteria that determines our success. Maybe you, the CEO, are the problem and do not understand your customer.

It's my responsibility to make sure our customers know about our activities – specials, events, available products. I take it personal when someone says, "I didn't know you carried that." Now you know why repetitive advertising is a must and why you may see the same content creatively adjusted for unique viewing.
