Real Estate Tips For Home Buyers and Sellers

Barbara Corcoran, real estate mogul and founder of The Corcoran Group gives advice to future and current homeowners.

When you become a buyer or seller the most important thing you can do is learn your market. Talk to a savvy local agent, and don’t make assumptions based on what you think you know. Real estate is local and every market is different with its own customs. If you believe there are general rules for real estate strategy that apply everywhere, you’ll likely be fooled.

Real Estate Market Report – Aventura, FL 33180

AVENTURA, FL 33180 – CONDOS – TOWNHOMES

Real-Time Market Profile

This Week

  • The median list price in Aventura is $346,000
  • Inventory is up
  • Market Action is trending down recently
  • Days-on-market appear to be trending lower, however the overall conditions are weakening a bit

Supply and Demand

  • The Market Action Index has been trending lower for several weeks while prices have remained relatively stable.  If inventory continues to grow relative to demand however, it is likely that we will see downward pressure on pricing.

Market Action Index

The Market Action Index answers the question “How’s the Market?”  By measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory.  Index above 30 implies Seller’s Market Conditions.  Below 30, conditions favor the Buyer.

Price Trends

Price

  • We continue to see prices in this zip code bouncing around this plateau.  Look for a persistent up-shift in the Market Action Index before we see prices move from these levels.

Is There Time Left To Take Advantage Of The $8,000 Tax Credit?

American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit

Eligible buyers must close by December 1, 2009 so it’s important to select a residence soon to make sure you don’t get left out.  The credit applies to first-time homebuyers, as well as individuals who have not owned a principal residence in the 3-year period prior to the purchase, and applies to homes purchased between January 1, 2009 and December 1, 2009.  The tax credit is equal to 10% of the purchase price, but capped at $8,000.  Certain income restrictions apply so be sure to visit www.irs.gov to learn more about eligibility requirements and limitations.

The credit:

  • applies to purchases that close before December 1, 2009
  • applies only to homes used as the taxpayer’s principal residence
  • reduces a taxpayer’s tax bill or increases his or her refund, dollar for dollar
  • is fully refundable, meaning the credit will be paid out to eligible tax payers, even if they owe no tax or the credit is more than the tax owed
