Four Reasons Rehoboth Beach Real Estate Investments Beckon

Good investors tend to be cautious souls. For those who prior to 2007 had never ventured into the realm of Rehoboth Beach real estate investments, the ensuing downturn might have been enough to discourage any curiosity about that direction (even if their other investments had also suffered during the global financial crisis).

Nonetheless, at this juncture those same cautious investors might well assume that the value of real estate investments in the Rehoboth Beach area have rebounded so substantially that it’s now too late to bother looking into them. But as National Public Radio has just pointed out, there's an excellent argument to be made that conditions are now highly conducive for real estate—with real estate investments in Rehoboth Beach being no exception. I could tick off three solid reasons that immediately leap to mind, but stand corrected: NPR points to four:

1. Employment. Employers are hiring anew, and "when companies are hiring, would-be homebuyers feel more confident about taking on mortgage debt." Unemployment rates have (finally!) come down to 5.6%, and with employers having added 252,000 jobs in December, consumer confidence is up nearly 20% over a year ago.

2. Prices seem more rational. NPR points out that from January to October, prices rose 4.5% nationally; a "subdued" gain compared with the 11% burst of the year before. They project that the slower price appreciation may have set the stage for a "buying surge in 2015." From a Rehoboth Beachreal estate investments standpoint, too, gains from last year’s run-up in equities markets combined with mortgage rates still holding below 4% would seem to create the key elements many investors would consider favorably.

3. Demand for rentals is high. There is a healthy demand for rental accommodation across the country due to a tight supply of quality accommodations. USA Today tells us that between 2009 and 2013, the national vacancy rate for apartments dropped from 8% to 4.1%. Over the same period, the effective rent increased by 12% to $1,083. As one potential consequence vis-à-vis Rehoboth Beach real estate investments, new landlords might expect to be more selective about the tenants that they choose. That would mean fewer headaches for landlords with troublesome and slow paying tenants. It is might also portend that investment properties will stand vacant for briefer periods.

4. Millennials are sick of Mom’s basement. NPR points to a Census Bureau report that says only 36% of Americans under age 35 own a home, down from 42% just seven years ago. The recovering employment picture might not enable young people to save up for a down payment for a while yet, but renting quality digs should soon be more doable than was previously the case. That could set the table for a continuing robust rental environment, with Rehoboth Beach real estate investments benefitting proportionately.

NPR’s four reasons for optimism in 2015 are actually only the tip of the iceberg. If you have ever had the thought that it could be worthwhile to take a look at Rehoboth Beach real estate investments, this is a great time of year to give me a call!

 

Rehoboth Beach Real Estate Deserves New Year’s Resolutions, To

Rehoboth Beach Real Estate Deserves New Year’s Resolutions, Too! 

New Year’s Resolutions with a Rehoboth Beach Real Estate Flavor

Rehoboth Beach Real Estate Enters the New Year with Resolutions Aplenty!

 

It’s hard to even think about New Year’s without the word ‘resolutions’ popping into your head—not to mention that it’s nearly impossible to go to any kind of Rehoboth Beach New Year’s Eve get-together without the topic coming up. In the realms of diet and exercise, New Year’s resolutions are highly relevant, and the pledges made on their account are the most likely to be followed religiously (at least until the Super Bowl parties put an end to them).

You might think that the field of real estate (even Rehoboth Beach real estate) would be unlikely to inspire any resolute oaths for the coming year, but that proves to be an incorrect assumption. A quick survey of real estate new year’s resolutions yields any number of lists of recommended pledges. There are 6 of them at the Bankrate mortgage site; another 5 at AOL; and a whopping 10 at both the Realtor® and Houselogic websites!

Whether or not you feel duty-bound to put any of these pledges into your own personal action queue on January 1 is up to you­­—but these are among those that are repeated most often:

  • Get Your Financial House in Order. This is actually a good one, for a couple of reasons. First, no matter what you do in 2016, any and all transactions that have a monetary dimension can’t help but go smoother when they fit into a well-ordered financial picture. Second, once you’ve followed it, there’s very little involved in following through. This resolution doesn’t need to have anything to do with Rehoboth Beach real estate to be a good idea, either.
  • Sellers: Resolve to Think of Your Home as a Product. This is cheating: it’s nothing like a real New Year’s resolution—but a darned good idea, anyway. The downside is that it’s only applicable if you are going to sell you area home in 2016. It’s probably not a joyful idea to think of your home as a product when its single purpose is to shelter your family.
  • Protect Yourself with Insurance. This one was prominent in a National Association of Realtors list, and although it was aimed at new home buyers, it has wider utility. When you take care to confirm that you’re neither over- nor under-insuring the key areas that require protection, peace of mind is a guaranteed byproduct. This New Year’s resolution also needs very little additional effort throughout the coming year­—so it ranks near the top of the RLK Scale (Resolutions Likely to be Kept).
  • Buyers: Resolve to Start Feeling Out the Market. This one might is a smart resolution for anyone planning to buy a Rehoboth Beach home any time in the coming year. Getting a bead on the market ahead of time can help you recognize sooner rather than later when you come across the right Rehoboth Beach home for sale.
  • Buyers and Sellers: Resolve to Engage a Real Estate Agent Now. This is one Rehoboth Beach real estate new year’s resolution I can heartily endorse for both buyers and sellers (it appears on almost all the lists). A truly grand resolution!
