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

Latest Realty News from NAR

Which Metro Areas Have Rising Prices and Faster Selling Time as of June 2018?

Home prices continue to increase although the pace of price appreciation has slowed. As of June 2018, the national median sales price of existing homes sold rose to a peak of $276,900, the highest level since 20001 when NAR started tracking this data. However, the pace of appreciation has been slowing. In June 2018, the national median sales price rose 5.2 percent on a year-on-year basis (2.2 percent on an inflation-adjusted basis), a slower rate of growth compared to the price appreciation of near or above 10 percent in 2013.

 

The question is: will home prices continue to increase? One way to think about this is to compare the price appreciation with days on market. If properties continue to sell at a faster pace, this means that demand continues to outpace supply, and there continues to be an upward pressure on prices. However, if properties are increasingly staying on the market longer, then this means that supply is starting to outpace demand, causing prices to fall. As of June 2018, the median list price increased compared to one year ago in 419 metro areas tracked by Realtor.com (414 in June 2017). Meanwhile, properties sold faster compared to one year ago in 495 metro areas (395 in June 2017).

The data visualization below shows the year-on-year change in median list price (Y-axis) against the year-on-year change in days on market (X-axis). Most metro areas lie on the upper left quadrant where the median list prices rose and the median days on market fell in June 2018 compared to one year ago. There are only three metro areas where days on market rose and median list prices fell: Johnston, PA; Enid, OK, and Minot, ND.

In the high price metro areas, the median list prices rose compared to one year ago, but they have slightly declined compared to May 2018 levels. In San Jose-Sunnyvale, the median list price rose compared to one year ago (14.7 percent), but the median list price decreased compared to the May 2018 level (-3 percent). In San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, CA, median prices rose compared to one year ago (8.7 percent) but also slightly declined from the May 2018 level (-0.4 percent). In Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA, the median list price also rose compared to one year ago (5.2 percent) but declined compared to the May 2018 level (-0.5 percent).

In summary, in many areas, demand is still outpacing supply, so there is still upward pressure on prices for now in many metro areas, although prices have started to trend downwards modestly in high-price metro areas (e.g., San Jose, San Francisco, Los Angeles). Affordability challenges, rising interest rates, and the modest increase in housing starts are likely exerting a downward pressure on prices. However, over the longer-term, there is still the upward demographic demand pressure from those in the 35-44 age groups (mostly millennials) who will increasingly get older, get married, have better incomes, and start forming households and buying homes. The U.S. Census Bureau projects the number of 35-44 year-old adults to increase from 41.3 million in 2018 to 47.2 million in 2028.

A Dive into 2018 Member Demographics

This blog was written by NAR Research’s intern, Bronwen Leibe.

Hi again, it’s me, the research intern! Let’s take a closer look at this year’s member profile!

In the 2018 NAR Member Profile, females still make up 63 percent of all REALTORS®. This remains notably constant throughout years of experience (girl power!). Females dominate the profession, except in function breakdown; they make up a smaller percentage of broker-owners, managers with selling, and appraisers.

The median age of REALTORS® for 2018 is 54 years old. Although, there has been a slight increase in younger REALTORS® (30 years old and younger) to 5 percent.  The consistent largest age group, those 65 years and older, has increased from 17 percent to 20 percent of all REALTORS®. As a large population embarks on retirement, there will be the need for other generations to enter into the industry.

Interestingly, REALTORS® aged 45 to 54 are a larger portion with 2 or less years of experience than REALTORS® aged 30 years old and younger. Are people coming from other occupations? Well, only five percent of REALTORS® reported real estate was their first career. With 95 percent coming from another occupation, were their previous jobs helpful to a transition in real estate? Thirty-two percent of REALTORS® had a previous career in management, business, finance or sales/retail. To me, those industries’ skills are reasonably applicable to real estate.

Conjointly, education at all levels is a valuable asset for an occupation. Thirty percent of REALTORS® have had some college education, 13 percent have their Associate’s Degree. A third of real estate agents have Bachelor Degrees, while 13 percent have a graduate degree. Nonetheless, investment in your occupation is just as noteworthy as investment in your education. Seventy-two percent of REALTORS® said that real estate was their only occupation— showing that agents heavily invest their time into the industry. In fact, a considerable majority of 52 percent work 40 or more hours per week.  On top of working in real estate, two-thirds of NAR members volunteer in their communities! Already, REALTORS® play a big role in community building and it is admirable that NAR members are contributing outside of their occupation.
