Why We Celebrate Independence Day

by Melissa Dierks

Why We Celebrate Independence Day 

“Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.” - Dwight D. Eisenhower

Independence Day is once again nearly upon us, and Arizonans everywhere will brave the triple digit heat to celebrate with friends and family. So as we gather around picnics, BBQ’s, parks, and fireworks let’s all take the time to remember why we celebrate Independence Day.

For over 200 years, Independence Day has been the celebration of the day we declared our independence from Great Britain. Since Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence it has been a symbol of freedom known worldwide. As a result, the Fourth of July is a day to celebrate our freedom, specifically the freedom to govern ourselves.

Americans have always known that Independence Day is the day we celebrate our freedoms that the Founders fought and died for. As a nation combatting everything from political unease and ISIS terrorist attacks to issues with health care and unemployment, now more than ever we all need unite as Americans to remember the extreme sacrifices that have been made to protect our great country and our rights.

Please enjoy this patriotic holiday and remember those who have given their lives for our country. Because freedom isn’t free! The Regal Team wishes you all a safe and Happy 4th of July!

June 2016 RE/MAX National Housing Report

by Melissa Dierks

June 2016 RE/MAX National Housing Report  

Summer home sales are heating up despite the still tight home inventory in many markets across the country. The June 2016 RE/MAX National Housing Report reflected an inventory of 14.8 percent lower than May 2015. At the rate of home sales in May, the national Months Supply of Inventory was 3.0, down from 3.2 in April.

Fortunately, May saw a 10.3 percent jump in sales over April and a 5.1 percent increase over May last year. The Median Sales Price in May was $222,475, a 4.2 percent rise from price levels one year ago and 3.5 percent above the median price in April.

“May home sales increased at a rate that’s slightly higher than the average monthly increase. This is despite the fact that inventory in many markets remains very low. At the same time, interest rates appear to have stabilized, which helps encourage potential homebuyers. Price increases continue to moderate and are rising at a more sustainable rate. This market is offering current homeowners more incentive to sell, which could have a positive impact on overall inventory levels,” said Dave Liniger, RE/MAX CEO, Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder.

Among the 52 metro areas surveyed in May, only five had a year-over-year drop in prices. The average Days on Market for all homes sold in May was 58, down six days from the average of 64 in both April 2016 and May 2015.

“Upon selling my condo, and deciding to relocate across the country, Melissa has been amazing! She listens to my wants and needs and made a list of places to check out. I was able to choose one…in one day! The process of the purchase was explained and any questions I had answered. Her positive energy is contagious…so be warned, you cannot help but like working with someone who anticipates your thoughts! Melissa made my relocation a much easier task than it would have been.

May 2016 RE/MAX National Housing Report

by Melissa Dierks

May 2016 RE/MAX National Housing Report

The 2016 home-buying season is just beginning and the real estate market is already off to a good start! April sales saw a 7.5 percent increase over March and a 3.2 percent rise over April last year according to the RE/MAX May 2016 National Housing Report. The Median Sales Price in April was $215,000, which was 5.4 percent higher than one year ago.

The number of homes for sale in April was 0.2 percent lower than in March and 15.2 percent lower than in April 2015. The average loss of inventory on a year-over-year basis in 2015 was 12.2 percent. While inventory remains much lower than last year, there are signs of stabilization month-to-month. Based on the rate of home sales in April, the Month’s Supply of Inventory was 3.2, which is nearly identical to last month and last year.

“Even though inventory remained tight, April still saw a demand for homes at a level higher than one year ago. Homebuyers realize that interest rates are historically low and mortgage accessibility appears to be improving along with the overall economy. Price increases make it possible for homeowners to feel comfortable selling, but they aren’t at a level that keeps first-time buyers out of the market,” said Dave Liniger, RE/MAX CEO, Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder.
