Terry's Take on the Brantford Real Estate Market

Looking at the statistics for the month of June 2019 versus June 2018, the number of new listings and the number of sales are very similar, with the exception being that the sale prices have gone up in June 2019 compared to June 2018. The Brantford real estate market remains strong and the prices have been on the rise as the demand for the homes for sale in Brantford continues to outpace the supply of homes that are available for sale. 

The Terry Summerhays Team's listings in 2018 sold with an average sale price that is 3.96% above the asking price, and averaged a 5.76% higher price than the Brantford Regional Real Estate Association's average sale price in 2018, which was 98.2% of the asking price. Simply put, We Sell Homes for More Money!! When you're thinking about selling your home, how much would an extra 5.76% on your sale price (and in your pocket) be worth to you?

Having a Professional on Your Side Makes All the Difference!

Having a Professional on Your Side Makes All the Difference! | MyKCM

In today’s fast-paced world where answers are a Google search away, there are some who may wonder what the benefits of hiring a real estate professional to help them in their home search are. The truth is, the addition of more information causes more confusion.

Shows like Property BrothersFixer Upper, and dozens more on HGTV have given many a false sense of what it’s like to buy and sell a home.

Now more than ever, you need an expert on your side who is going to guide you toward your dreams and not let anything get in the way of achieving them. Buying and/or selling a home is definitely not something you want to DIY (Do It Yourself)!

Here are just some of the reasons you need a real estate professional in your corner:

There’s more to real estate than finding a house you like online!

There are over 100 steps that need to take place during every successful real estate transaction. Don’t you want someone who has been there before, someone who knows what these actions are, to ensure you achieve your dream?

You Need a Skilled Negotiator

In today’s market, hiring a talented negotiator could save you thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of dollars. Each step of the way – from the original offer, to the possible renegotiation of that offer after a home inspection, to the possible cancellation of the deal based on a troubled appraisal – you need someone who can keep the deal together until it closes.

What is the home you’re buying or selling worth in today’s market?

There is so much information on the news and on the Internet about home sales, prices, and mortgage rates; how do you know what’s going on specifically in your area? Who do you turn to in order to competitively and correctly price your home at the beginning of the selling process? How do you know what to offer on your dream home without paying too much, or offending the seller with a lowball offer?

Dave Ramsey, the financial guru, advises:

“When getting help with money, whether it’s insurance, real estate or investments, you should always look for someone with the heart of a teacher, not the heart of a salesman.”

Hiring an agent who has his or her finger on the pulse of the market will make your buying or selling experience an educated one. You need someone who is going to tell you the truth, not just what they think you want to hear.

Bottom Line

Today’s real estate market is highly competitive. Having a professional who’s been there before to guide you through the process is a simple step that will give you a huge advantage! Call Terry today at 519-802-8770 and let's get the process started!

Starting the Search for Your Dream Home? Here Are 5 Tips!

Starting the Search for Your Dream Home? Here Are 5 Tips! | MyKCM

In today’s real estate market, low inventory dominates the conversation in many areas of the country. It can often be frustrating to be a first-time homebuyer if you aren’t prepared.

In a realtor.com article entitled, “How to Find Your Dream Home—Without Losing Your Mind,” the author highlights some steps that first-time homebuyers can take to help carry their excitement of buying a home throughout the whole process.

1. Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage Before You Start Your Search

One way to show you are serious about buying your dream home is to get pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage before starting your search. Even if you are in a market that is not as competitive, understanding your budget will give you the confidence of knowing whether or not your dream home is within your reach.

This step will also help you narrow your search based on your budget and won’t leave you disappointed if the home you tour, and love, ends up being outside your budget!

2. Know the Difference Between Your ‘Must-Haves’ and ‘Would-Like-To-Haves’

Do you really need that farmhouse sink in the kitchen to be happy with your home choice? Would a two-car garage be a convenience or a necessity? Could the ‘man cave’ of your dreams be a future renovation project instead of a make-or-break right now?

Before you start your search, list all the features of a home you would like and then qualify them as ‘must-haves’‘should-haves’, or ‘absolute-wish list’ items. This will help keep you focused on what’s most important.

3. Research and Choose a Neighborhood You Want to Live In

Every neighborhood has its own charm. Before you commit to a home based solely on the house itself, the article suggests test-driving the area. Make sure that the area meets your needs for “amenities, commute, school district, etc. and then spend a weekend exploring before you commit.”

4. Pick a House Style You Love and Stick to It

Evaluate your family’s needs and settle on a style of home that would best serve those needs. Just because you’ve narrowed your search to a specific area or neighbourhood, doesn’t mean that you need to tour every listing in that area.

5. Document Your Home Visits

Once you start touring homes, the features of each individual home will start to blur together. The article suggests keeping your camera handy to document what you love and don’t love about each property you visit.

Making notes on the listing sheet as you tour the property will also help you remember what the photos mean, or what you were feeling while touring the home.

Bottom Line

In a high-paced, competitive environment, any advantage you can give yourself will help you on your path to buying your dream home. Call Terry at 519-802-8870 and let's get started!

What home buyers should know about the Canadian mortgage stress test

Photo by Jason Briscoe on Unsplash

The federal government’s stricter new borrowing guidelines affect you if you plan to apply for a mortgage, and even if you already have one.

by 

By now you’ve probably heard about the mortgage stress test that the federal government introduced in late 2017. But, if you’re like nearly half of Canadians polled recently by TD Bank, you may not understand what the test is—or who it affects.

“These new rules apply across the board,” says Ann-Marie Rasiawan of Mortgage Architects, a national mortgage brokerage based in Mississauga, Ont. “Even if you have amazing credit and a 20% down payment, you still have to go through the stress test.”

In other words, if you have a mortgage or plan to get one, the stress test applies to you. Here’s what you should know before you apply for your next home loan:

What is the mortgage stress test?

First off, it’s not really a test. Rather, it’s a more stringent set of rules banks must now use to determine if you qualify for mortgage and, if so, how much you can borrow.

Why was it created?

The new mortgage rules exist to protect borrowers, like you. Because interest rates have been at historic lows that can (and will) only go up, the government wants to make sure you’ll still be able to afford your mortgage payments when rates eventually do rise. Otherwise, if you can’t afford higher payments in the future, you might be forced to default on your mortgage and lose your home.

 

How does it work?

When you apply for a mortgage, the lowest rate the bank can use to determine your eligibility is the posted Bank of Canada five-year rate, which is currently 5.34%. (Or, if the rate your bank is offering you, plus 2 per cent, is higher than the Bank of Canada rate, then that’s the minimum qualifying rate that will be used.) To put this into real terms, if you wanted to borrow $400,000 and the bank is offering you a rate of 3.5%, you would have to prove you can afford a mortgage payment of about $2,440 per month (at 5.5%), even though your actual monthly mortgage payment (at 3.5%) would be just under $2,000.

How does the bank determine what I can afford?

There are two main figures banks use in this calculation, Rasiawan says. “First is GDS [gross debt service ratio], which is the percentage of the borrower’s pre-tax income that will cover housing costs [including mortgage, heat and property taxes] and it should be no more that 32%,” she says. “Then there’s TDS [total debt service ratio], which is any outstanding personal debt [including mortgage, car loans, credit card debt, lines of credit, etc.] and should be no more than 40% of pre-tax income.”

Going back to our $400,000 mortgage example above, if we assume heating and property taxes total $560 per month (bringing total housing costs to $3,000), you’d need a pre-tax monthly income of at least $9,375 (or $112,500 annually) to have a GDS of 32% or less. Similarly, based on that income, your total debt load could not exceed $3,750 per month (including the $2,440 mortgage payment) to have a TDS of 40% or less in this scenario.


 

 


What do these new rules mean for borrowers?

If you are a first-time potential homeowner trying to get a foot into the market, the new rules make it a lot harder for you, Rasiawan says. “My brother, for example, was applying for a mortgage and under the old rules would have been able to qualify for $450,000 but can now only get $380,000,” she says. “That’s a huge difference when you’re a first-time home buyer.”

Renewing mortgage holders only need to “pass” the stress test if they switch lenders. “But they can’t really shop around for a better rate or negotiate with their existing lender when they renew, so it affects them as well,” she says.

Is there any way to side-step the stress test?

Not really. Canada’s big banks are mandated to enforce these rules while other lenders, such as credit unions, use them voluntarily to reduce their risk exposure. Still, there are steps borrowers can take increase home affordability, according to Rasiawan. “Save up more, pay down other debt or get a co-signer,” she says. “That will qualify you for a larger mortgage.”

4 Tips for Making a Competitive Offer

 

4 Tips for Making a Competitive Offer | MyKCM

So, you’ve been searching for that perfect house to call ‘home,’ and you’ve finally found it! The price is right, and in such a competitive market, you want to make sure you make a good offer so that you can guarantee that your dream of making this house yours comes true!

Below are 4 steps provided to help buyers make offers, along with some additional information for your consideration:

1. Determine Your Price

“You’ve found the perfect home and you’re ready to buy. Now what? Your real estate agent will be by your side, helping you determine an offer price that is fair.”

Based on your agent’s experience and key considerations (like similar homes recently sold in the same neighborhood or the condition of the house and what you can afford), your agent will help you to determine the offer that you are going to present.

Getting pre-approved will not only show home-sellers that you are serious about buying, but it will also allow you to make your offer with confidence because you’ll know that you have already been approved for a mortgage in that amount.

2. Submit an Offer

“Once you’ve determined your price, your agent will draw up an offer, or purchase agreement, to submit to the seller’s real estate agent. This offer will include the purchase price and terms and conditions of the purchase.”

Talk with your agent to find out if there are any ways in which you can make your offer stand out in this competitive market! An experienced local real estate agent who specializes in the neighborhoods you are considering will be instrumental in helping you put in a solid offer. The agents on The Terry Summerhays Team know the Brantford real estate market and can use their local expertise to help you get the home you want without overpaying for it!

3. Negotiate the Offer

“Unless it is a multiple offer situation, the seller will likely counter the offer, typically asking for a higher purchase price or to adjust the closing date. In these cases, the seller’s agent will submit a counteroffer to your agent, detailing their desired changes, at this time, you can either accept the offer or decide if you want to counter.

Each time changes are made through a counteroffer, you or the seller have the option to accept, reject or counter it again. The contract is considered final when both parties sign the written offer.”

If your offer is approved, you are urged to “always get an independent home inspection, so you know the true condition of the home.” If the inspector uncovers undisclosed problems or issues, you can discuss any repairs that may need to be made with the seller or even cancel the contract altogether.

4. Act Fast

The inventory of homes listed for sale has remained well below the 6-month supply that is needed for a ‘normal’ market. Buyer demand has continued to outpace the supply of homes for sale, causing buyers to compete with each other for their dream homes.

Make sure that as soon as you decide that you want to make an offer, you work with your agent to present it as quickly as possible.

Bottom Line

Whether buying your first home or your fifth, having a local real estate professional who is an expert in the Brantford and Brant County real estate market on your side is your best bet in making sure the process goes smoothly. Call Terry today at 519-802-8770 and let's talk about how we can make your dream of homeownership a reality!
