Spring Housing Market

Spring Housing Market

It is hard to believe, but spring is already around the corner. According to Zillow, homebuyers can plan for a fairly strong buying season, and many markets are already seeing the high numbers already. Parry Custom Homes, a Pittsburgh custom builder, shares what to plan for if you are buying or selling a home this spring season.

The shift from last spring to this spring was a lot of renters becoming homebuyers and investing in a home, opposed to continuing to throw away money towards rent. This has helped to boost the economy, as home investment in housing helps to boost economic progress.

However, across much of the country many markets are seeing very low inventory when it comes to homes for sale. It is hard to have a strong selling season when limited inventory is available on the market for homebuyers. Limited listings means that home prices will go up, and we will see fairly good home value appreciation with a solid demand for housing.

However, if inventory doesn’t pick up across the country, then the existing-home sales won’t pick up as much and will eventually filter into the GCP numbers. The numbers from last year lead economists to believe that this spring will be a fairly strong buying season since there was leftover demand from 2015.

As young professionals move out of their parents house, out of apartments, or away from their current roommates, many of them will be ready to begin hunting for their first home and to become a first time homeowner. Since now is such a smart time to buy financially, there will be plenty of people still wanting to buy while the interest rates are low and the ability to get a loan and qualify for a mortgage is still at the benefit of the buyer.

Financial Home Protection

Financial Home Protection

If you’re moving into a new home or currently on the look for a Pittsburgh on your lot builder to build your new home, Parry Custom Homes has some tips you will want to put in place for your new home to protect you from any potential disaster that could strike.

More than likely, protecting financial documents for when a possible disaster could strike is probably not the first thing on your mind on a day-to-day basis. However, protecting your important documents should be on your radar and something you take care of, especially after moving into your new home.

Knowing your important financial documents are taken care of, will give you and your family peace of mind and will be one less thing you will need to worry about if you hit stressful times.

To prepare for any type of disaster, be sure to keep these items below in their appropriate places:

Keep marriage licenses, birth certificates, adoption papers, property deeds, wills, insurance policies, social security cards, passports, car titles, lease contracts, bank and investment account numbers and three years of tax returns in a bank safe deposit box. Put each of these documents in a sealed plastic bag to keep out moisture.

Make and safeguard additional official copies of critical documents, such as birth certificates, adoption papers, marriage licenses and the deed to your home. Be sure to let a close relative or trustee know where theses documents are located.

Keep names and contact numbers for executors, trustees and guardians in a safe place, either in your safe deposit box with a close relative.

Secure online data storage, which can serve as a supplement or back-up to your paper copies of documents.

Take an inventory and keep a list of household valuables. Taking photo or video of these items can help as well.

Include extra cash in smaller bills, in your home emergency kit. This kit should include a three-day supply of water, food, a first aid kit, a manual car opener, flashlights and a radio with extra batteries.

These simple steps will leave you with peace of mind and protection of your valuables if a disaster should ever occur.
