Today, I will answer the question you are probably asking yourself right now:
Is 2012 The Year To Sell My Condo or Home in Clearwater Beach?
I will start by saying, “The answer to the question will depend upon your goals”.
If you don’t need or want to sell your home and move for a few years it might make sense to wait for the housing industry and the Clearwater Beach real estate market to completely recover and prices to appreciate to sell your Clearwater Beach condo or home. Now, ask yourself this question: When will the Clearwater Beach Housing Market fully recover?
On the other hand, if you want to move and sell within the next 6-18 months, it is probably better to sell sooner rather than later.
“For 2012, we are expecting better housing numbers than in 2011, and a better second half than first.”
—IHS Global Insights
I think there is strong evidence that there will be more foreclosures and short sales coming on the market, and this alone will put downward pressure on prices over the next 12-18 months. So, it might be wise to get your Clearwater Beach condo or home sold before more of these distressed properties hit the Clearwater Beach real estate market and become your competition for buyers.
I think there is strong evidence that the lending standards will continue to tighten, and that legislation will be passed making it harder for buyers to qualify for first, second and HELOC loans which will eliminate some buyers from the market.
Is buying your own home better than investing in stocks right now?
“If I knew where I was going to want to live the next five or 10 years I would buy a home and I’d finance it with a 30-year mortgage… It’s a terrific deal.”
—Warren Buffett in the February 13, 2012 interview with CNBC
Another point to consider is that interest rates are at all time lows, so this may be the time to be moving-up to a larger or more expensive property and be in a position to gain more equity as prices eventually appreciate.
In the final analysis, you may decide to sell your Clearwater Beach condo or home and not allow the current Clearwater Beach real estate market prevent you from reaching your goals. On the other hand, you may be trying to find either the top or the bottom of the real estate market just like stock traders or day traders.
I recommend that you think about the reasons in favor of and against selling your Clearwater Beach Real Estate, and determine what’s really most important for you.
