(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – Brett Martin (http://www.appraisers.in)  - Indianapolis appraiser and Indianapolis real estate agent:

By now you have undoubtedly received these latest statistics from a local real estate agent:

The Indiana Real Estate Markets Report today released by the state's REALTORS® shows that statewide, when comparing January 2014 to January 2013, the following occurred:
·      The number of closed home sales decreased 9.1 percent to 3,839,
·      The median sale price of those homes increased 2.3 percent to $110,500,
·      The average sale price increased 4.8 percent to $135,618,
·      The percent or original list price received increased 1.7 percent to 91.4 percent,
·      The number of pending home sales decreased 19.8 percent to 4,122, and
·      The number of new listings decreased 20.7 percent to 6,916.
 
If you are considering selling this season, do not fear!  Seasonality and weather have long affected sales in a negative way over the short term. 
Arguably the most comprehensive paper written for further reading on weathers affects on sales is from the Federal Reserve and available for reading here: http://www.federalreserve.gov/pubs/feds/2000/200008/200008pap.pdf

Kevin Eastridge, 2014 President of the Indiana Association of REALTORS® (http://www.indianarealtors.com/) stated "Last month we reported the fundamentals of most housing markets across the state strong. But local housing markets were no match for Mother Nature who gave us one of the snowiest, coldest January's on record, and delayed closings and prevented showings all over Indiana," "Dangerous weather conditions didn't stop with January's end, so we expect year-over-year comparisons to lag for at least the next couple of months. The good news is that home values held their own and the pent-up demand could make the spring and summer very busy if and only if the inventory is present. Opportunity is knocking loudly on the doors of potential sellers," concluded Eastridge.

Weather is not only chilling real estate activity.  Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial said in a recent CNBC article (http://www.cnbc.com/id/101389853) "We already saw it in auto sales, it literally freezes the economic activity, and you don't get the activity to resume until we get a thaw."

Weather has been cited as a factor behind a series of squishy economic reports, including December's surprisingly weak jobs number and the ISM manufacturing survey this week.

This winter will end and buyers will return.  Our Indianapolis appraisal products and marketing plans are ready when you are…rain or shine or snow or…just call 317-345-4382.

Choosing a real estate agency to join was a daunting decision for me. From the moment you complete your education, recruiters from the big firms start calling. Some are even so bold as to ask you how many contacts you have that you can give them up front. Having been a real estate appraiser for a decade in the Indianapolis Area, I was heavily recruited by those who I have had relationships with over the years including the largest brokerage in the Indianapolis Metro as well as one of the top ranked broker-agents in the entire nation. I have appraised home sales for nearly every real estate broker in the Indianapolis- Carmel area. I can’t quantify what it is exactly about msWoods that I have always admired more than the others but I always knew that I would place my license with them if I ever decided to sell homes. Perhaps it is Mike’s entrepreneurial spirit and seemingly endless passion for making a better cutting edge company? As a financial analyst, I can tell you that msWoods absolutely has the best commission splits in the business. But more importantly for me, I started my first sign business when I was 11, worked in Indy Car marketing, and pioneered internet marketing techniques before we even figured out how to make money from the internet. Creative freedom and the ability to co-brand were paramount for me when I selected a broker. Very few brokers give you the freedom to develop your own business. While the big firms wanted me for my personal and appraisal contacts, msWoods was open to my creativity and has never once tried to sell me anything or asked me to sell to my family and friends. Leads, leads, leads. If you are new to real estate sales like I am and need broker provided leads, the quantity of ready, willing, and able leads msWoods can give you is actually overwhelming- the opportunities from their company provided leads is second to none- if I only had more time aside from my appraisal business or another employee to capitalize on them I would be very wealthy from selling real estate. Please feel free to contact me anytime for further discussion.
