Real Estate Recession | Homes Sold By Jessica Harless | NextHome Realty Center

The One Thing Every Homeowner Needs To Know About a Recessionย 

A recession does not equal a housing crisis. Thatโ€™s the one thing that every homeowner today needs to know. Everywhere you look, experts are warning we could be heading toward a recession, and if true, an economic slowdown doesnโ€™t mean homes will lose value.

Theย National Bureau of Economic Researchย (NBER)ย definesย a recession this way:

โ€œA recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, normally visible in production, employment, and other indicators. A recession begins when the economy reaches a peak of economic activity and ends when the economy reaches its trough. Between trough and peak, the economy is in an expansion.โ€

To help show that home prices donโ€™t fall every time thereโ€™s a recession, take a look at the historical data. There have been six recessions in this country over the past four decades. As the graph below shows, looking at the recessions going all the way back to the 1980s, home prices appreciated four times and depreciated only two times. So, historically, thereโ€™s proof that when the economy slows down, it doesnโ€™t mean home values will fall or depreciate.

The One Thing Every Homeowner Needs To Know About a Recession | Simplifying The Market

The first occasion on the graph when home values depreciated was in the early 1990s when home prices dropped by less than 2%. It happened again during the housing crisis in 2008 when home values declined by almost 20%. Most people vividly remember the housing crisis in 2008 and think if we were to fall into a recession that weโ€™d repeat what happened then.ย But thisย housing market isnโ€™t a bubbleย thatโ€™s about to burst. The fundamentals are very different today than they were in 2008. So, we shouldnโ€™t assume weโ€™re heading down the same path.

Bottom Line

Weโ€™re not in a recession in this country, but if one is coming, it doesnโ€™t mean homes will lose value. History proves a recession doesnโ€™t equal a housing crisis.

Your House Could Be Closer to List-Ready Than You Think

One of the biggest concerns for a homeowner looking to sell is the time theyโ€™ll have to put in before listing their house. If thatโ€™s the case for you, you should know โ€“ย your home might be closer to list-ready than you think in todayโ€™s housing market. Aย surveyย of recent sellers fromย realtor.comย finds that many were able to get their house ready in less than a month. It says:

โ€œWith many homeowners expecting a quick sale, and in many cases a lack of contingencies,ย the preparation process took less than a month for over 50% of home sellers this past year, with 20% completing it in less than two weeks.โ€

Those sellers expecting to sell quickly are following recentย buyer trends. Withย mortgage ratesย andย home pricesย rising, buyers in todayโ€™s market are serious about finding a home quickly. But with the limited number of homes for sale, there are very fewย optionsย for those buyers to choose from. That means many may be willing to take on projects after they purchase.

Because of this, you may be able to focus on less time-consuming tasks before putting your house on the market. According to the survey mentioned above, some of the top things recent sellers completed before listing over the past year includeย landscaping, making minor cosmetic updates, and touching-up paintย (see image below):

โ€œ. . .ย Real estate can be hyper-local, and demand can vary from one neighborhood to the next.ย Itโ€™s a good idea to work with a local real estate professional to determine an ideal listing price and if any improvements or repairs need to be completed before putting your home on the market.โ€

Your trusted real estate advisor knows the ins and outs of the market in your specific area. Theyโ€™ll help you identify the places where you should and shouldnโ€™t spend your time and money โ€“ and that can enable you to list quickly.

What Does it Take to Sell Your Home – A Great Listing Agent Working for You!

For most people when they decide to sell their home it is a new adventure. Some think it is just a matter of putting out a “For Sale sign and you will sell your home. However, the sign is just the Ad – not the event. You need to know what’s ahead on that road less traveled. It “takes a village” or at least an experienced, knowledgeable and qualified professional to guide you and provide their expertise. But, it also takes your commitment to tasks, timeframes, and sometimes a little “give and take!”

Always keep in the back of your mind – that everyone share a common goal – to put that “SOLD” sign on your front lawn!
