How Experts Project Your Bethany Beach Home Value Growth

If you are an Bethany Beach homeowner (or about to become one), you’ll be interested in the progression of your Sussex County home’s value over time. The market may fluctuate, but what doesn’t is your goal of seeing your property value go up — in other words, calculating its Return on Investment. In economic terms, evaluating the projected ROI tells you how much profit there would be if the home is sold at a later time.

There are two major methods of calculating real estate ROI. Both take cost and appreciation into account — but they come up with quite different answers!

The Cost Method gives a smaller ROI. Consider buying an Bethany Beach house for $100,000. Ubiquitous Zillow (the Internet giant) pegs the current annual appreciation rate for real estate in the U.S. at 6%. If our Bethany Beach market proves true to that projection, the example Sussex County home value would register $106,000 after the first year. If $2,000 were spent on repairs, that means a $4,000 profit would result, and the ROI for that one year would be $4,000 divided by $102,000: 3.9%. At that ROI, it would take roughly 26 (100 divided by 3.9) years to equal the cost of the home.

Sometimes called the "Out of Pocket" method, this calculation yields a higher ROI. Here, ROI is calculated based on the size of the down payment (assuming a mortgage is involved). Take the same example: the Sussex County home valued at $100,000. You won’t actually pay that whole amount — just the down payment (say, $20,000). To evaluate the ROI, the down payment is added to the repair costs ($20,000+$2,000) and that number is subtracted from the appreciated home value ($106,000-$22,000). The "equity" in this case is $84,000, so the ROI in that single year is $84,000/$106,000 = 79.2%. Although this sounds terrific, it isn’t too realistic…after all, the mortgage left is still owed: it may not be "out of pocket" because it hasn’t been actually paid yet, but the remaining liability is real.

On Selling Your Home in Delaware …When It’s Not Even Listed!

It’s the kind of “problem” many would like to have: a buyer has just made an offer on your home — and you hadn’t even listed it for sale!

Turns out, it’s not all that uncommon for “house-stalkers” (or their determined agents) to slip notes into owner’s mailboxes or just knock on the door and ask to buy the house. It’s a house-hunting strategy that has worked for all kinds of buyers who are unimpressed by the homes they find on the market.

For anyone up in the air about selling your home in Delaware, here are some questions that can lead to a rational decision:

Were you planning to sell in the future?

If so, how far into the future? 20 years? If that’s the case, unless it’s an astounding offer, better stay put. But if you were considering selling your area Delaware  home within the coming 5 years, seriously entertain the offer! Making the most of unexpected happenstances is a calling card of successful people from time immemorial.

Is the return on your investment substantial?

Except in a financial emergencies, selling your home in Delaware is never a good idea unless you are getting a solid return on your initial investment. (Not just the initial price: include renovations, additions and your own sweat equity). If the offer qualifies on this dimension, it’s time to engage a professional home appraiser to give you an expert view of what your property is really worth in the current market.

Are you ready to move?

We all have emotional connections to our homes, especially after we’ve invested much effort into shaping its look and feel. Part of your decision that’s as important as the financial side comes with considering where you would live after the sale. Gauge whether your excitement over a new house, neighborhood and even a new city outweigh the feelings you have for your current home.

If opportunity comes knocking at your door, it never hurts to consider! And if you are thinking of selling your home in town in any case, give me a call to go over the numbers!
