If you liked the Broward County real estate stats in June 2020, you’ll be even happier with what happened in July. The real estate indicators in July 2020 even beat what was happening in the market a year ago.

The number of CLOSED SALES in July 2020 was 1,646, an increase of .7% from last year at this time, and up from 1,313 in June 2020.

The MEDIAN SALES PRICE increased. In July 2020, it was $400,000, which is a 5.3% increase over July last year, and up from last month, when the median sales price was $390,000. The AVERAGE SALES PRICE was $511,102, which is a 7.6% increase over July 2019. It even shows an increase from the $498,158 average sales price in June of this year.

The MEDIAN PERCENT OF THE ORIGINAL LIST PRICE received held strong yet again in July at 96.9%. That’s higher than in June when it was 96.2%, and .9% higher than it was in July 2019. That’s a result of sellers setting reasonable list prices, and the competition in the market preventing a lot of negotiating.

The real estate market in Broward County sped up in July 2020. The MEDIAN TIME TO CONTRACT dropped from 44 days in June to 32 days. That’s a drop of 25.6% from July 2019, also. Homes were almost flying off the shelves, undoubtedly due to some pent up demand.

The MEDIUM TIME TO SALE was also shorter at 73 days, down from 89 days in June. That’s a drop of 14.1% over July 2019. It’s still definitely a seller’s market, but that doesn’t mean you should put off buying.

The number of NEW LISTINGS in July 2020 was 1,957, which is an increase over June’s number of 1,772, and 3.9% higher than this time last year.

At the end of July 2020, there were 3,725 ACTIVE LISTINGS, representing a 3.1 MONTHS SUPPLY OF INVENTORY, which is less than last month, when we had a 3.4 months’ supply. If you’re thinking about selling, now would be a good time to jump into the market because there are a lot of buyers out there looking for a new place to call home.

Our active listings and inventory supply are much lower than this time last year when there were 5,562 active listings representing a 4.2 months’ supply. It’s likely that the COVID-19 pandemic has had an effect on those numbers.

Probably everyone knows something about how mortgages work. But, if you’re going to buy a home, you need to know more than “something.” It doesn’t’ matter if you’re a seasoned or first-time home buyer, the more you know about the terminology and the way mortgages function, the better off you’ll be. Test your knowledge here. You’ll probably learn something new.

What should you do before you start looking at houses for sale?

Get pre-approved for a mortgage loan. Your real estate agent can guide you to a proven lender depending on your financial situation. For example, if you’re just graduating from school and starting your career as a doctor, there are specialized mortgages for you. If your credit score isn’t the greatest, you’ll want to work with a lender who can provide you with the widest possible alternatives.

When you know how mortgages work, you’ll be glad you’re preapproved. Once you’re pre-approved, you’ll know exactly what prices of homes you should consider. In addition, a pre-approval gives you an advantage when you find a house you want to buy and negotiations start. One thing sellers try to avoid at all costs is accepting an offer and then having the deal fall through because the buyer couldn’t get financing.

Besides that, with a pre-approval, the seller knows that you’re a serious buyer, and that the odds of you not being able to get financing is very low.

Does a pre-approval guarantee you a loan?

No. The pre-approval is done at a specific point in time. If you do something that changes your financial situation before you close, you may not get the mortgage you wanted. For example, if you increase your debt by purchasing major items for your new home before you close, your financial situation changes. You will probably get a loan, but the terms may change and that will increase the monthly payment you had planned on.

Other issues may come up with the home you want to purchase. Most lenders have guidelines for the type of home they will finance, so be sure you follow those guidelines when looking at homes.

Is a Mortgage a Secured Loan?

Yes. A secured loan is simply a loan that uses some type of collateral to reduce the risk for the lender. Car loans are secured by the car, and mortgages are secured by the home. If a borrower defaults on a secured loan, the lender has the right to seize the collateral. For a car, the lender repossesses the car. For a home, the lender starts foreclosure proceedings.

Is it Necessary to Put 20% Down on a Home?

No. You need to know how mortgages work because there is a lot of misinformation floating around. There is a myth that all home buyers must put 20% down on a mortgage loan. It probably came about because you’ll get better terms if you put at least 20% down. Some lenders may require a 20% down payment, but there are others that don’t. Make sure you evaluate alternatives before deciding on your down payment on a house.

What is a Conventional Loan?

The government doesn’t back conventional loans.  The lender takes on all the risk, so conventional loans often require larger down payments and better credit scores.

What is a Government-Backed Loan?

It’s a mortgage loan backed by one of several governmental agencies. Examples include FHA, VA, and USDA. FHA loans offer lower down payment requirements, but you will need an insurance policy to protect FHA if you put down less than 20%. The cost for that insurance is added to your monthly mortgage payment. Most government-backed loans require that you keep the mortgage insurance in effect for the life of the loan. The only way to remove it is to refinance your loan.

What is PMI?

It stands for Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). It’s a policy that a conventional mortgage lender may require if your down payment is less than 20%. It is similar to the insurance the FHA requires, but since no government agency is involved, lenders add the word “private” to the name. PMI is usually removed if the borrower has a good payment history when the mortgage reaches 78 or 80% of the value of the home.

For example, let’s say you purchased a $300,000 house and put 10% down. At that point, your loan amount of $290,000 is 90% of the value of the house. After making payments over time, you’ll reduce the amount you owe. When it reaches $240,000, your loan will be at 80% of the value of the home, and you can ask your lender to remove the PMI.

how mortgages workCan My Lender Sell My Mortgage?

Yes. To a lender, your mortgage loan is just another investment. They’re planning on making money from the interest you pay on your loan. But your lender can decide to sell your loan if they want more immediate cash. Often, banks will sell loans to get the capital they need to make new loans.

Another thing that can happen is that your lender chooses to have someone else service the loan. If that’s the case, the people you talk to about your loan and the place you send your loan payments to will change. It may seem as if your lender sold the loan, but they may have just hired someone else to process payments and do the other administrative work surrounding a mortgage loan.

Lenders sell mortgages and change servicers on a regular basis, so don’t be surprised if you got the loan from one lender and then work with other lenders or servicers during the life of the loan.

So, How Did You Do?

Keeping up with how mortgages work will help you make your home buying experience a good one. If you’re a first-time homebuyer, don’t miss our post on First-Time Homebuyer’s Mortgage Tips.

Since so many people start their home search on the internet, it’s critical that you work with real estate agents who are internet-savvy and who can make sure your home stands out. Very often, that includes having a professional photographer take photos to put online. When you prepare your house for photos, they work well as the biggest factor in motivating buyers to schedule a showing. To get the most from your exposure online, make sure you prepare your home to look its best.

If you’re adding your home to the list of Davie homes for sale, you can do many things to get your home ready to sell. You can check out our home seller guidelines to get more home selling tips. If you’re considering doing some renovations or updates, review what homebuyers really want before you make any major changes.

General Tips

When you prepare your house for photos, start with a general cleaning. Dust, vacuum, wash windows, and generally make sure your home sparkles. You may not realize it, but dust, smudges on the refrigerator, and water spots on a mirror in the bathroom will show in a photo.

Prepare Your House for PhotosBefore the photographer arrives, complete this checklist:

Outside Your Home

People looking at shots of your home’s exterior should be able to focus on the house itself. Prepar your house for photos by removing anything that will distract their attention.

Living Areas

You don’t want these rooms to look too sterile, but you want people to imagine themselves living there without a lot of clutter.

Kitchen

Again, you’re looking for a kitchen that looks organized and inviting.

Dining Room

After a thorough cleaning, you might want to set the dining room table with pretty dinnerware and napkins. At a minimum, add a centerpiece to give the room a homey feel. If you have a china cabinet, make sure everything visible is arranged neatly.

Prepare Your House for PhotosBedrooms

Make sure everyone is up and out of the house before the photographer arrives. That may sound silly, but there have been bedroom photos with a suspicious lump in the bed.

Bathrooms

Bathrooms are important rooms in any house, so make sure yours aren’t overwhelmed with bath accessories and toiletries.

Miscellaneous

After you’ve done whatever you can to prepare your house for photos, it’s best if you, your family, and your pets leave the house during a photo shoot. Let the photographer do the work in peace and quiet.

Think about anything in your home that you don’t want to be displayed on the internet and remove it from sight. For example, you may not want to advertise the original Van Gogh you have hanging in the living room. If your children have their names on their doors or in their rooms, consider removing them if they will show in the photos. If you want to see some examples of what makes listing photos look good, check out this article.
