Putting the "Thanks" in Thanksgiving

by Melissa Dierks

Putting the Thanks in Thanksgiving

All in a Word - By Aileen Fisher

T for time to be together, turkey, talk, and tangy weather.

H for harvest stored away, home, and hearth, and holiday.

A for autumn's frosty art, and abundance in the heart.

N for neighbors, and November, nice things, new things to remember.

K for kitchen, kettles' croon, kith and kin expected soon.

S for sizzles, sights, and sounds, and something special that abounds.

That spells ~~~THANKS---for joy in living and a jolly good Thanksgiving.

We hope the spirit of gratitude enriches your heart on Thanksgiving Day and every day after. From the Regal Team family to yours, Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! – Melissa and Bob

RE/MAX National Housing Report for October 2018

by Melissa Dierks

RE/MAX National Housing Report for October 2018

The third consecutive month of lower year-over-year home sales in October contributed to the first year-over-year inventory increase in a decade according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report for October 2018. Meanwhile, the Median Sales Price recorded one of its lowest increases of 2018.

The RE/MAX National Housing Report for October saw sales decline 4.6 percent from a year ago – compared to sales drops of 11.6 percent in September and 1.1 percent in August – and was the eighth month of 2018 to record lower sales than 2017.

As a result, inventory is slowly being replenished, with the number of homes for sale in October increasing 1.0 percent over October 2017. October 2018 was the first month to show a year-over-year increase in inventory since October 2008 when two and a half times as many homes were for sale. The Months Supply of Inventory is now 3.5, compared to 3.3 a year ago.

“The market continues to move toward equilibrium. The modest inventory increase is a much welcome sign for buyers,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “Although home sales were down year-over-year, it’s encouraging to see the magnitude of the decline decrease from the sharp drop we witnessed in September. The trend of easing price increases remains and that’s also a positive.”

October’s Median Sales Price of $236,000 marked the 31st consecutive month of year-over-year price increases and was the highest October price in the 10-year history of the report. Even so, the 4.9 percent gain was the third-lowest year-over-year growth of 2018.

Days on Market of 48 was an October record for fewest days and compares to 51 days in October 2017.

“The imbalance that has defined this market for so long continues to moderate,” said Contos. “However, it will take some time to recalibrate. Rising prices and interest rates and tight inventory levels continue. Buyer and seller expectations still appear to be a bit mismatched suggesting a choppy market remains in place.”

by Melissa Dierks

The Regal Team Home Inspection Series 3- Electrical Panel

The Regal Team is excited to present part three of our five-part series on residential home inspection. Hear from a licensed home inspector on the various things they are looking for when it comes to inspecting your home.

Electrical panels are boxes that house circuit breakers, which are safety devices that stop the electrical current if it exceeds the safe level for some portion of the home electrical system. Many people, even experienced electricians, have been killed or seriously injured while opening electrical panels. Inspectors must be aware that all forms of electrical inspections, especially electrical panel inspections, are inherently dangerous.

In this episode, Kris Houser with Insight Real Estate Inspection Service explains to our very own Robert Dierks what they are looking for specific to the electrical panel. There is a lot more than just "breakers" when it comes to this area of the home.

Kris can be contacted at (623)594-8131 or (623)297-1584 for additional questions you may have related to home inspection services. We hope this interview between Kris Houser with Insight Real Estate Inspection Service and Robert Dierks with The Regal Team will enlighten you a little more on what you need to know about your electrical panel.
