Jules Harper was introduced to my wife and me over four years ago by a real estate agent we had consulted for the sale of our home (from which we had already moved). Because of the real estate crash, ours was a short sale, and the agent told us that Jules Harper was the best he knew in that business. My wife and I met Jules on very short notice because our situation was dire. We had just had a lease purchase contract fall through. We needed to sell the home extremely quickly or we would be responsible for capital gains tax and a number of monthly payments that we could not afford. Jules met us the very day we called him. We had lunch and were immediately impressed with everything about him. It was apparent that he was an expert in his field. We hired him immediately. Though Jules was an expert in his field, that expertise was not at all what inspired this letter of recommendation. What inspired this letter was his work ethic and care for our situation and family. The day the house was listed (December of 2012), we got a contract. We were thrilled. But we soon learned that there was a title dispute on the home. This issue would persist and create financial strain for my family and me. Jules worked so hard to resolve the title issue with two banks that were slow (or refused) to respond to phone calls, emails, and letters. The mortgage was then sold to another servicer. This pattern repeated itself three times as the mortgage sold upon nearing a resolution. Jules worked as hard each setback as he had on the first day – harder in fact as the complexity and work required of him increased with each new twist. I literally cannot put into words how much of a hard worker, expert in his field, and (most importantly) a good person this man is. To say that I highly recommend Jules Harper is such an understatement. He is a great person who will work for you even at his own expense. Stuart and Leslie V.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for getting great results in selling my home. From the moment you were recommended to me and I first met you and your team, I knew that you were a cut above other REALTORS. Before our first appointment, you researched the neighborhood home sales and specific information about my home. I was also happy to have the information to guide me in preparing my home for sale. Your advice allowed me to be strategic on improvements that increased the appeal of the home and added maximum value. I developed a personal plan to budget for continued payments as the home was being marketed. Now I see that had you told me what I wanted to hear, I would not have been as prepared as l was. And now we know, your knowledge of the market was spot on. During this process, a few offers came in, including an offer for lease to buy. The information you provided helped me make wise decisions. Your availability throughout the process not only kept my anxiety down, but allowed us to respond in a timely manner to each situation. Seeing and knowing that you had my best interest at heart contributed to making the process of selling my home less stressful than it might have been and certainly one with a very favorable outcome. Your counsel, experience, and results make you the BEST REALTOR I have ever dealt with. At every opportunity I will recommend you and The Four Walls Group at Keller Williams Realty to friends and acquaintances without reservation. Betty Cooper

REALTORS® Expect Home Prices to Increase by 4% in the Next 12 Months

In a monthly survey of REALTORS®, respondents are asked “In the neighborhood(s) or area(s) where you make the most sales, what are your expectations for residential property prices over the next year?

Among the respondents, the median expected price change is four percent. The chart below shows median expected price change by state based on survey responses collected during February–April 2018[1], according to the  April 2018 REALTORS® Confidence Index Survey

Respondents from the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, California, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, and Wisconsin expect the highest price growth in the next 12 months, with the expected median price growth at more than five to nearly eight percent.

Owing to tight lack of construction, house prices have increased steeply since 2012 compared to the growth in income. Nationally, the median price of U.S. existing homes sold was 68 percent higher than the level in January 2012, the year the housing market started to recover solidly.  Meanwhile, wages have increased only 15 percent since then.

Based on the FHFA House Price Index at the state level, the strongest price growths from 2012 through 2017 were in the West region such as Nevada (102 percent), California (85 percent), Arizona (76 percent), Oregon (74 percent), Idaho (70 percent), Washington (68 percent), Colorado (68 percent), Utah (65 percent). Home prices have also increased steeply in Florida (73 percent), Michigan (71 percent), and Texas (47 percent).

Use the data visualization below to view median listing prices in April 2018. Red areas are areas where prices are higher than the U.S. median home price growth. Hover on the map to view the historical median listing prices of properties listed on Realtor.com from June 2012 through April 2018.[2]

Older Boomers: Most Satisfied Buyers Purchasing Forever Homes

Older Boomers, buyers aged 63 to 71 years, made up 14 percent of all home buyers in 2017. The median age for this group was 66 years old and they were born between 1946 and 1954. Within this group, they had the second largest share of single female buyers at 22 percent. Their primary reasons for purchasing a home, more than other generations, were the desire to live closer to friends and family (25 percent), followed by retirement (15 percent).

Combined, Older Boomers owned the highest share of investment (nine percent) and vacation (seven percent) properties. Equal to the Silent Generation, Older Boomers were the most likely to purchase homes in a small town (27 percent) and in a rural area (11 percent).

Compared to other buyers, they moved the greatest distances at a median of 30 miles. Older Boomers were the least likely to purchase homes for the quality of school districts or convenience to schools. Rather, they purchased homes for the quality of the neighborhood and for convenience to friends and family. This age group found commuting costs as well as windows, doors, and siding installation equally important. Overall, Older Boomers were very likely not to make compromises on the home when they purchased (47 percent), citing that they were never moving and it was their forever home (27 percent).

In their home search process, Older Boomers were very likely to drive by homes and neighborhoods and they were the least likely to find the paperwork a difficult step. Older Boomers were the most satisfied with the home buying process at 93 percent.

Older Boomers’ income was below the median income of all buyers ($88,800) at just $80,700 and they purchased homes at a median price of $239,200. Older Boomers were the most likely to use the proceeds from the sale of a primary residence as the source of their downpayment (56 percent) and from an IRA account (five percent). They were the largest group of home buyers to save for a downpayment for more than two years (30 percent).

Older Boomers were the third largest share of home sellers at 22 percent in 2017. The median age for an Older Boomer seller was 67 years. They had the second lowest median income at $80,700. They were the most likely to sell to be closer to friends and family (28 percent) and for retirement (19 percent), and at a median distance of 39 miles from the home they recently purchased. They were also very likely to sell when they wanted to (94 percent). They receive the highest equity at 46 percent and second highest dollar value at $86,000.
