Like Peeps and Tulips, Lewes Spring Real Estate's in Season!

When the first spring day comes along (as opposed to the first day of spring), a goodly proportion of residents feel the annual pull, toward the garden store aisles. Even those who’ve stoutly resisted ordering seeds, gardening tools, or any of the other back yard paraphernalia the catalogs kept hawking all winter can succumb to this particular Call of Nature.

Burpee, Scotts and Miracle-Gro shareholders can relax: spring has sprung.

The Lewes spring real estate selling season starts stirring, too, pretty much in lockstep with the appearance of the tulips. Whether or not the tulips have succeeded in poking up out of the ground, it’s a cinch that by this time they will have made colorful appearances on store shelves everywhere, just like the Peeps and chocolate bunnies. Unlike the rest of the early spring’s trappings, though, the spring real estate phenomenon doesn’t disappear from sight once Easter Sunday is a memory. In fact, it picks up steam.

There are any number of explanations why spring real estate in Lewes is always expected to ramp up. Part of the reason is the calendar. For families with children, if a move is going to involve a change in school districts, summer vacation is the least disruptive time of year for it to happen, so spring is the time to start house hunting. Part of the reason is due to the comparative difficulty of selling a home in wintertime: not only can foul weather make it harder to keep a home at its showy best, it also can throw a monkey wrench into property maintenance and the few cosmetic fixes that almost every home could use before it hits the Lewes listings. The result is a certain amount of bottled-up inventory that bursts onto the scene all at once—and springtime is the single time of the year when that happens.

Then there is the automatic momentum effect. When you sell a Lewes home, most families need to turn around and buy the next. The National Association of Realtors® tells us that the spring real estate selling season may actually be stronger than the numbers indicate, because many sales that really did begin “in season” don’t actually close until summer begins. Spring real estate as a phenomenon is “real” enough that you can’t blame them for lines like “Spring brings rain and flowers—and possibly extra green in the final sales price of your home.”

The spring real estate selling season is indeed underway, so if you are planning on listing your own Lewes home anytime soon, now is a great time to give me a call. It’s the best way to take advantage of the traditional boom in prospective buyers!  

Lewes Searchers Unearth Baffling Mortgage Rate News

 If you were one of those homeowners in Lewes who happened to consult Google for “mortgage rate news” over the weekend, you might have been puzzled by the top two results.

Fortune got the top spot, with an article headlined, “Your 30-Year Mortgage Rate Should Be Lower Than It Is Now.” That might have rightfully ruffled your feathers. After all, if the mortgage rate news is that your rates are higher than they should be, just what kind of chicanery is going on—and who is behind it? This sounds like a greed-inspired ploy of some kind—and details that you’d better read at once!

But, had your eye fallen on the second headline before you clicked on that first, you would have seen the Mortgage Reports blog top line, which was not even slightly conspiratorial-sounding: “Average US 30-year mortgage rate falls to new 2016 lows.”

Taken together, mortgage rate “news” like this could save you the trip from Lewes to Disneyland. Why stand in line for the spinning Mad Tea Party ride, when all you have to do is ask Google for “mortgage rate news” to get dizzy?

What’s really going on???

Googling further would have helped explain. Bankrate told “home-shoppers” that they should “be cheerful: Job growth in June was surprisingly high”—but since that news hadn’t affected mortgage rates “much,” there was a confluence of good fortune: an economy that was perking up but not enough to raise interest rates.

The most encouraging mortgage rate news was actually sounded by The Wall Street Journal, which claimed to explain “Why banks aren’t giving you a 3%, 30-year mortgage…yet.” “Yet”??? The WSJ went on to explain how current “super low” rates could head even further south—but it called for a super robust reader attention span. If they stuck with it long enough, though, Lewes readers discovered that bank profit margins (the “spreads”) were rising while mortgage rates fell because government bond yields had fallen even faster.

You might recall that at one point, Disney put a limit on how fast riders are allowed to spin the Mad Hatter’s tea cups—but apparently nothing of the kind is planned for the financial world. So the first two Google finds for “mortgage rate news” are correct: the rates are even lower than before (per Freddie Mac, 3.41% last Thursday) and it’s reasonable to suggest they could be lower.

All in all, it looks like there is even more reason than ever to take advantage of this particularly rewarding era for Lewes’s real estate offerings.
