A case for title insurance- What do you mean I don’t own my land anymore ?

In my job as a real estate agent I am always asked by clients why do we need title insurance ?

Guy Gugliotta Here is one instance where the buyer was very lucky to have bought it.

In spring 2013, the Virginia Beach real estate market was up, and Guy Gugliotta was thinking about selling.

For decades, the New York writer had owned two vacant lots on the seaside in Sandbridge – investment properties surrounded by vacation homes. With thoughts toward buying in another part of the country, he contacted Siebert Realty in Virginia Beach to talk about options.

The call seemed to surprise the agency, and the agents’ response surprised Gugliotta even more. He couldn’t sell the properties, they said, because he had already sold them. Didn’t he remember? The deal had closed the previous August.

Gugliotta was floored. He hadn’t sold his properties, so who did? And in the world of real estate, so full of documents, signatures and attorneys, how could someone do that?

Those questions have dogged Gugliotta through court proceedings in which he fought to reclaim his property and through calls to law enforcement agencies he hopes will catch the thief. The same questions have haunted the two buyers who thought they made above-board purchases and the agencies and banks who thought they were conducting a standard real estate transaction.

The truth bewildered them all. But the most startling discovery may be that while this exact crime is rare nationally and in Virginia Beach, some who work in real estate say it’s surprisingly easy to commit.

"It’s mind-blowing how vulnerable our system is," said Billy Joe McFarland, a Florida attorney who works in real estate law. He said he’s seen fraudsters fake deeds and pretend to be owners, but Gugliotta’s case seems to be the most brazen yet.

Hampton Roads Home Sales Up, Inventories Down & the Market Is Recovering

As we approach the mid-point for 2013, real estate statistics for the Hampton Roads market continue to undergo consistent improvement, setting benchmarks that tell of a recovering market. May 2013 saw steady year-over-year increases in residential pending and settled sales, while the number of residential homes for sale continues to dip, thus lowering the market’s months’ supply of inventory

The strongest performing statistic for May 2013 was the number of residential pending sales; up 27.18% when compared to May 2012. Our region has not seen a percentage increase this high since January 2012 when it jumped 32.9% year-over-year from January 2011. Each of the region’s seven major cities (Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach) recorded year-over-year increases in residential pending sales. Suffolk and Norfolk contributed significantly to this surge, with year-over-year increases of 48.67% and 35.53% respectively, while Newport News and Hampton saw the smallest year-over-year increases of 8.9% and 5.77% respectively

Residential settled sales increased 5.73% when compared to May of last year. Each of the area’s seven major cities, with the exception of Hampton, experienced year-over-year increases in the number of housing units sold. Suffolk and Portsmouth underwent increases of 18.68% and 13.73%; contrarily Hampton suffered a 15% decline in regard to year-over-year residential settled sales. The region’s residential median sale price is currently $205,000, a nominal increase of 1.23% from May 2012’s $202,500.

As the year progresses, residential listing inventories continue to wane. There was a 5.84% decrease in the number of residential active listings from May 2012 to May 2013. Portsmouth was the only city not to experience a year-over-year drop in the number of homes for sale, with Newport News and Chesapeake experiencing the largest declines of 16.82% and 9.91% respectively. The region’s months’ supply of inventory is currently at 6.58 months, which tracks as a 13.42% decline from May 2012’s 7.6 months, but an increase of 1.5% from last month’s 6.48. Industry benchmarks accept a six to eight months’ supply as an indicator of a healthy market.

In May 2013, distressed homes (those that are either foreclosures or short sales) accounted for 22.41% of all residential active resale listings. This is the smallest percentage of distressed homes in the residential active listing makeup in the past 18 months. Of the total number of residential resale settled sales  26.25% were distressed properties, a statistic nearly identical to that recorded in May 2012 at 26.26%. The percentage of distressed properties as residential resale sold listings has consistently declined throughout 2013 from 34.88% in January to 26.25% in May.

Time to Buy? Sell?

As we always say, the best time to buy or sell a home is when you need to buy or sell. If you have a house to sell, selling when its a buyers market may hurt you on the selling end, but you’ll make it up on the buying end. If you’re trying to get into the market for the first time, the only way you’ll know that we’ve “hit bottom” is when its in the rear view mirror. Work with professionals who can help you analyze your financial and lifestyle to determine if now is the right time to buy or sell.

Looking strictly at the numbers, it appears the recommendation for this month is (again)…it’s time to sell. With inventory at record lows, a home that’s priced right will have no problem finding a buyer. As we head into June 2013, buyers who have been waiting for more inventory will continue their searches. Get your home on the market now and be moved into your new home by July ! If you’re looking to sell, we can help you get top dollar for your home in the shortest time. For more info about the best home selling program in Williamsburg VA  visit Sell MY WILLIAMSBURG HOME

If you’re a buyer, that doesn’t mean sit on the fence and wait. Interest rates are increasing and will continue to do so. Buying now could mean a difference in hundreds of dollars to your payment. As more and more inventory gets snatched up, you’ll find less and less available. Waiting until the market slows down could mean you could afford less home as interests rates go up. And, as buyers continue to snatch up everything, market values will go up as well. If you’re looking to get into the market, the best time to find a great deal is any time you can.

January Homes Sales Update for Hampton Roads

home sales statistics williamsburg vaInventory is down and prices are up !

The Hampton Roads real estate market is off to an optimistic start for 2013.

The number of residential homes for sale significantly dropped when compared to January 2012, resulting in a lower month’s supply of inventory. Residential closed  sales and homes under contract both experienced double digit percentage year-over-year increases.

The number of residential homes listed  for sale in Hampton Roads in January 2013 was down 10.75% when compared to the same time last year. Of the regions seven major cities (Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach) Chesapeake and Virginia Beach experienced the largest year-over-year declines in residential active listings at 19.01% and 16.87% respectively. Portsmouth was the only city not to experience a year-over-year decline as residential active listings increased 2.05%. The drop in active listings has resulted in a low 6.18 months’ supply inventory which is down 17.6% from January 2012 when it was 7.5 months.

Pending sales (Homes under contract) showed promising numbers during January 2013 with an increase of 14.14% when compared to January 2012. Suffolk and Chesapeake saw the largest year-over-year increases of 39.74% and 25.54% respectively, while Hampton experienced the smallest year-over-year increase of 3.74%. Portsmouth was the only city not to see a year-over-year gain, with residential under contracts down 14.12%.

Closed home sales round off the month’s positive trend. January 2013’s residential settled sales increased 20.66% when compared to January 2012. Suffolk and Hampton substantially contributed to this increase as they saw year-over-year gains in residential settled sales of 59.26% and 40% respectively. Norfolk experienced the smallest year-over-year gain of 3.87% and Portsmouth saw no gain at all as residential settled sales dropped 1.18% year-over-year.

Home prices

The median residential sales price is currently $193,000, a 10.63% increase from $174,450 in January 2012. image

 

The Hampton Roads distressed homes market, (BANK OWNED, FORECLOSURES OR SHORT SALES ) continue to impact the region’s real estate market. Distressed homes accounted for 34.88% of residential settled sales during January 2013. This is the highest percentage since February 2012 when distressed homes accounted for 36.39% of residential settled sales. As for residential homes for sale, 27% of the listings in January 2013 were distressed properties. This percentage has fluctuated between 22% and 28% over the last 18 months. There appears to be an upward trend in both active and sold distressed residential properties starting in August 2012

2012 Was A Very Good Year For Hampton Roads Real Estate

I post a number of real estate sales statistics on this website throughout the year, Yesterday I recapped the Williamsburg VA market with stats from the local Williamsburg Area Association of Realtors. (WAAR)

Today we will cover the remainder of Hampton Roads with data from the Real Estate Information Network (REIN). This includes the cities and counties of Carrolton,  Chesapeake,Gloucester, Hampton, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth , Newport News Norfolk, Poquoson, Smithfield, , Suffolk, Surry,  Va Beach, Yorktown  and York County Virginia

The final numbers are in and the Hampton Roads real estate market ended the year with encouraging statistics that indicate 2012 was a year of strengthening and recovery. Although inventory levels are the lowest since 2005, pending and settled sales posted healthy increases for a second year in a row, and the median sales price is slowly but steadily moving up.

The number  homes listed for sale in December 2012 is down 13.36% when measured against December 2011. This brings the region down to a 5.91 month’s supply of inventory. Six months is considered a normal real estate market. Chesapeake’s active residential active listings are down the most at 22.94% year-over-year, to a 4.96 month’s supply of inventory, and Virginia Beach is down 21.45% to a 4.18 month’s supply. This is the lowest number of active residential listings since May 2006 when there were 9,448 residential homes for sale.

image

Residential pending sales (homes under contract) were up 8.55% year-over-year for December 2012. Only two of the region’s seven major cities (Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Hampton and Newport News) did not experience an uptick in pending sales; Norfolk and Chesapeake with 15.05% and 3.23% decreases respectively. The number of residential pending sales increased the most for Suffolk, up 21.74% over December 2011.

We did see a dip in closed sales in December of 5.03% when compared to the same month last year. A dip in settled sales is not uncommon for the month of December, as homeowners often prefer to concentrate on the holidays instead of moving residences. All of the region’s major cities experienced this down-turn, except for Portsmouth and Norfolk with gains of 3.70% and 2.72% respectively. Suffolk saw the most dramatic decline in December’s settled sales with 14.42% year-over-year. Of all of December’s closed sales, 16.83% were for new construction. The median sales price for all residential homes sold in December 2012 was $200,000, up 1.27% from $197,500 in December 2011.

Year-to-date summaries for 2012 showed promising trends when compared to the prior year. For all of 2012, 34,746 new listings were added into REIN’s database (all property types). This is down 6% when compared to 2011 and is the lowest since 2003. Of the region’s seven major cities, Newport News experienced the largest dip in the number of new listings, down 12.54% from 2011, while Suffolk was the only city to see an increase, up 1.05% for 2012. For the year as a whole, 12.71% (4,416) of these new listings were for new construction, suggesting that new home activity is picking up.

In all of 2012, 20,174 residential listings went under contract, up 9.27% from last year. All of the region’s major cities underwent increases, except for Portsmouth (down 1.77%) and Newport News (down .72%). Suffolk felt the most significant increase in total pending sales, up 20.80% over 2011. There were 19,518 residential closed home sales throughout all of 2012, up 7.35% from the previous year. Suffolk benefited with the largest gain over 2011, an increase of 12.75% in settled sales. Newport News and Portsmouth were the only two major cities to face declines, each of which was down less than 1% from 2011. The median residential settled sales price for 2012 is $199,900, up 2.51% from $195,000 last year. In 2012, residential new construction closings (2,663 units) were up 12.65% from 2,364 units in 2011. Unlike the median price for all residential settled sales, the median sales price for residential new construction closings in 2012 is down 1.5% ($274,000 vs. $276,908).

The share of foreclosures and shorts sales,  known as distressed sales, has been inching upward in South Hampton Roads since August. The percentage of existing home sales that were distressed in December broke the 30 percent threshold for the first time since April. This does seem to happen for some reason at the end of each year..

Hampton Roads real estate market continues it’s recovery

November 2012

Promising real estate trends in Hampton Roads continued through October 2012, with double digit percentage increases in sales and homes under contract compared to October 2011

October 2012 saw a 13.8% year-over-year increase in closed sales. This marks the eighth time this year that settled sales have increased year-over-year. Suffolk and Portsmouth experienced the largest gains of 42.3% and 25.6% respectively. Of the seven major cities (Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach) Norfolk and Newport News were the only two not to experience year-over-year increases and saw declines of 9.9% and 5.9%.

The number of homes under contract  was up 26.1% in October 2012 when compared to the same time last year. This is the highest year-over-year increase the market has experienced since January 2012 when the number of pending sales grew 32.9%. Suffolk and Virginia Beach experienced the largest year-over-year increases at 100% and 29.8% respectively. Hampton and Newport News were the only major cities not to experience an increase, with declines of 12.3% and 1.4% year-over-year.

The number of homes listed for sale continue to decline and were down 12.1% overall when compared to October 2011.

This drop in the number of active listings in the market has led to a significant drop in month’s supply of inventory – now at 6.79 months as compared to 8.44 months in October 2011. A six months supply is considered a balanced market. In the supply and demand equation, this lowering of inventory bodes well for the median sales price, which was $199,000 in October 2012, up 5.4% from $188,780 in October 2011.

image

Banked owned homes or short sales continue to have an impact on the region. Although the number of distressed active listings has dropped , they still account for 26.8% of all residential active listings in October 2012, vs. 24.3% in October 2011. This may suggest that buyers are purchasing more non-distressed listings. Distressed home sales accounted for  28.3% of all residential sales in October 2012. Though this is up 2.9% from September this year, distressed  sales are down 4.8% from October 2011.

These statistics are from the real estate information network (REIN) the MLS for the Hampton Roads region covering the areas of Virginia from Williamsburg east to Virginia Beach and south to the North Carolina border. This includes homes, condos, townhomes or land for sale in Carrolton,  Chesapeake,Gloucester, Hampton, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth  Mathews, Newport News Norfolk, Poquoson, Smithfield, , Suffolk, Surry,  Va Beach, Yorktown  and York County Virginia and James City County/ Williamsburg

Behind on your mortgage payments ? Get up to $30k to sell your short sale home in Hampton Roads

Bank of America has launched a nationwide program that offers delinquent mortgage customers increased assistance with relocation expenses of – between $2,500 and $30,000 – at the completion of a qualifying short sale.

imageQualified homeowners in Williamsburg or Hampton Roads VA who initiate a Preapproved Price Short Sale (without an offer) could be eligible to receive $5,000 – $30,000* in relocation assistance and owe no more on their mortgage with the sale of their property, depending on the investor involved.

To qualify for the enhanced relocation assistance payments under the new program, sellers must work proactively with the bank to obtain a preapproved sales price prior to submitting a purchase offer to the bank. A short sale must be initiated by the end of this year and close by September 26, 2013, to be eligible for the payment. Qualifying short sales that have already been started but have not closed may be eligible for the relocation assistance.

The amount of assistance provided under the new program will be determined on a case-by-case basis using a calculation that includes the value of the home, amount owed and other considerations.

Initially, the program will be offered on mortgages that are owned and serviced by Bank of America.

Customers who believe they may be eligible for Bank of America’s short sale relocation assistance program may contact program specialist John Womeldorf at 757 254 8136 or email me at John@MrWilliamsburg.com

Hampton Roads real estate market continues its upward trend…

August 12, 2012

As a real estate agent in the Williamsburg and Hampton Roads market I post sales updates from two different MLS.  Here in Williamsburg we have the WAAR ( Williamsburg Assoc of Realtors) WMLS.  East of Williamsburg both on the peninsula and in Southside Hampton Roads  we use REIN (Real Estate Information Network) and to confuse you even more in Gloucester there is the CBRAR (Chesapeake Bay Association of Realtors) and west of Williamsburg is CVRMLS (the Central Virginia Regional MLS)

The info below is from REIN

The Hampton Roads residential real estate market continues to experience encouraging trends. August 2012 results, such as a year-over-year drop in active listings and year-over-year increases in residential under contract sales and settled sales, combine to indicate a stabilizing local market.

 

The Hampton Roads residential real estate market continues to experience encouraging trends. August 2012 results, such as a year-over-year drop in active listings and year-over-year increases in residential under contract sales and settled sales, combine to indicate a stabilizing local market.The number of  homes listed for sale in the region has dropped almost 16%  when compared to August 2011. This marks the 18th consecutive month that home listings have dropped over the previous year. Virginia Beach and Chesapeake experienced the largest year-over-year decline in active listings at 23.09% and 20.85% respectively.

 

The region’s months’ supply of inventory is currently down to 7  months. A six month inventory is considered a balanced market so we are almost there.

 

Sustained drops in residential active listings are the root source of this lower months’ supply.

Homes under contract or  pending sales increased 23.28% in August 2012, when compared to August last year. Chesapeake and Suffolk underwent the largest increases in residential pending sales at 40.08% and 34.83%. This boost in the number of homes that went under contract should  lead to a large spike in settled sales over the coming months.

 

Compared to the same month in 2011, closed home sale in the Hampton Roads area increased 16.74%. Suffolk and Newport News lead the region’s major cities in year-over-year increases at 33.7% and 22.4% respectively.

 

August 2012 marks the sixth consecutive month that median home sales price in Hampton Roads has increased year-over-year. August 2012’s median sales price was $208,535, up 1.72% from $205,000 in August 2011.

 

The distressed homes market (foreclosures and short sales) continues to show signs of improvement as well.    Based on August 2012 stats. Distressed homes, those that are bank-owned or short sales, accounted for 24.74% of all listings. This marks the 10th consecutive month distressed homes have declined as a percentage of closed residential sales in Hampton Roads VA.
