September 2019 Marysville Real Estate Market Report

Real Estate Market ReportsJanuary 2019 Marysville Real Estate Market Report

Real estate market data for Marysville, OH  provided by Jim West of Revolution Realty.

Marysville Ohio Home Prices

Home prices in Marysville and central Ohio have hit an all time high and don’t expect things to slow down anytime soon.  We have seen 51 straight months of home appreciation.

 

If you are considering buying a home, you can still find deals on a house in Marysville, but having a good real estate agent who understands the market is a must. 

 

Don’t wait on the sidelines for too long, many of our listings are starting to sell within a few days of hitting the market.

 

As you can see from the graph below, listings are not selling exactly for asking price, but very close. To make sure you don't overpay for your home, you'll want to have an agent that does a thorough market analysis of the Marysville home on which you are making an offer.

If you are interested in how much current inventory is on the market in Marysville you can find that information by clicking on the link.

Our inventory is at its lowest point since 2000. High inventory will suggest that homes are sitting on the market for longer.

Currently in this area of Marysville, homes have an incredible median time of 31 days on the market before they sell. This would suggest that sellers are in a great position to make stronger counters to offers on a home.

Buyers had better get Pre-Approved and ready to make solid offers to compete in today's market.

Sellers should make sure to price their home near the market value if they expect to get an offer from one of those interested buyers. Low inventory in Marysville has multiple offers coming in on homes similar to what we saw back in 2005.

I wouldn't expect home prices to run up quite as fast as they did back then as banks have gotten a lot stricter on lending guidelines and are no longer giving a loan to anyone with a pulse.

But low inventory is one indicator that prices should continue to rise and inventory stayed the same as this time last year at 70 listings. Please see the chart below for current inventory level.

7 Things To Avoid After Applying For A Mortgage

7 Things To Avoid After Applying for a Mortgage!

7 Things To Avoid After Applying for a Mortgage! | MyKCM

Congratulations! You’ve found a home to buy and have applied for a mortgage! You are undoubtedly excited about the opportunity to decorate your new home! But before you make any big purchases, move any money around, or make any big-time life changes, consult your loan officer. They will be able to tell you how your decision will impact your home loan.

Below is a list of 7 Things You Shouldn’t Do After Applying for a Mortgage! Some may seem obvious, but some may not!

1. Don’t change jobs or the way you are paid at your job! Your loan officer must be able to track the source and amount of your annual income. If possible, you’ll want to avoid changing from salary to commission or becoming self-employed during this time as well.

2. Don’t deposit cash into your bank accounts. Lenders need to source your money and cash is not really traceable. Before you deposit any amount of cash into your accounts, discuss the proper way to document your transactions with your loan officer.

3. Don’t make any large purchases like a new car or new furniture for your new home. New debt comes with it, including new monthly obligations. New obligations create new qualifications. People with new debt have higher debt to income ratios… higher ratios make for riskier loans… and sometimes qualified borrowers no longer qualify.

4. Don’t co-sign other loans for anyone. When you co-sign, you are obligated. As we mentioned, with that obligation comes higher ratios as well. Even if you swear you will not be the one making the payments, your lender will have to count the payment against you.

5. Don’t change bank accounts. Remember, lenders need to source and track assets. That task is significantly easier when there is consistency among your accounts. Before you even transfer money between accounts, talk to your loan officer.

6. Don’t apply for new credit. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a new credit card or a new car. When you have your credit report run by organizations in multiple financial channels (mortgage, credit card, auto, etc.), your FICO score will be affected. Lower credit scores can determine your interest rate and maybe even your eligibility for approval.

7. Don’t close any credit accounts. Many clients have erroneously believed that having less available credit makes them less risky and more likely to be approved. Wrong. A major component of your score is your length and depth of credit history (as opposed to just your payment history) and your total usage of credit as a percentage of available credit. Closing accounts has a negative impact on both those determinants of your score.

Bottom Line

Any blip in income, assets, or credit should be reviewed and executed in a way that ensures your home loan can still be approved. The best advice is to fully disclose and discuss your plans with your loan officer before you do anything financial in nature. They are there to guide you through the process.
