Spring has arrived and summer is fast approaching with the hot sun beating down along with clear skies. Everyone enjoys a warm sun, but sometimes the sun can become too warm and people look forward to going inside a building with blasting AC. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or an experienced one, you should know by now that your bills always seem to rise rapidly when that AC is turned on. Here are a few ways to help cut down that price and keep your house cool.

 

Awnings


For most houses, awnings aren’t really at the top of a person’s list to check to see if they can help with cooling down the house, but you should definitely take a peek outside and see what you are working with. Installing awnings over a south facing window can decrease the solar heat gain by almost half, while installing awnings on the west facing windows can decrease the solar heat gain almost by 75%.


Curtains


Almost everyone knows that by closing the curtains, the house becomes cooler as the sun and heat are blocked out by them, as solar heat gain can be decreased to close to 33%. If you close your curtains, but still notice that it’s still hotter inside then it is outside, check the weave of your curtains. Heavy closed weaved fabric curtains, such as velvet or broadcloth, are the best bet for effectively blocking out the sun.


Interior Shutters


If you have a quirky sense of design for your home, try installing interior shutters to your windows. Wood shutters would work best in blocking off the sun’s rays and cooling the house. They also add a little extra something to the room design that makes the room pop.

Timing is everything for property investment, entering at the right time in the market will always give an important effect on the long term success of your investment. Here are 9 signs that will help you decide if now is the time to start searching.

 

1. Financially Sound.

 

Saving enough for a down payment, creating an emergency fund, knowing that there might be maintenance expenses, as well as having a good credit history are all needed before you start to search for your investment property.

 

2. Long Term Goals

 

You know the purpose of your investment and are willing to be adaptable to any changing circumstances, such as market needs and new development of technology.

 

3. Research

 

You have completed your own research on the neighborhood you wish your future property to be on. You now know what schools are in or around the neighborhood, where all the bus stops are located and you can easily predict the next homebuyer’s needs.

 

4. Economy is Stable

 

The area you have chosen is financially stable, with promising economic trends and surging equities.

 

5. Policies

 

You have read about the country’s policies for all real estate, and that they promote and encourage a positive place and drive to help further economic growth. Make sure that the tax policy is positive for the homeowners, and that global innovation index is rising.

 

6. Growth

 

The city is planning on growth in the city and are building in anticipation of it, such as building another bridge, increasing road size, and renovating or creating more buildings.

 

7. Sustainable Development

 

The increase in value for sustainable property is growing as more and more people head towards wanting to maintain a sustainable living with eco-friendly homes.

 

8. Location Interest

 

It’s always at the top of the search engine for places to go, plus many job seekers could be looking in that area for a house that can be rented. Also keep in mind of any international students that could be looking for a place to call home during the school year.

 

9. Real Estate Agent

 

If you are from overseas or looking for an investment in a different city, it is crucial that you find a fantastic realtor for that area that knows what they are talking about. This will help to make your decision easier and find a great choice at a reasonable price.

Here are three suggestions to increase the value of your home. Before renovations start, be sure to calculate all the costs and map out a timeline for the renovations.

 

  1. Add a bedroom

 

Known as one of the best ways to add revenue to any property, adding a bedroom to your house will most defiantly add value to your house. Owning a house with a flexible floor plan helps enable you to either move internal walls, or enclose a large outside area within a roofline of the house, like a balcony.

 

  1. Add a kitchen

 

The main focal point of a house is the kitchen, because this room is used every day by everyone in the household. Adding clean new cupboards, upgrading your appliances, and adding new storage space is a sure way of adding value to your house. 

 

  1. Add a bathroom

 

Another room that always creates an impression on a house is the bathroom. Changing a bathroom by simply repainting the walls a bright color, and refurnishing can change a dreary and dark bathroom, into a bright and colorful bathroom. To make a small bathroom seem larger, laying large rectangular tiles laid horizontally really makes a small bathroom seem bigger. To add another wow factor to a simple bathroom, put in a free standing bath tub or a frameless glass shower screen.

 

 

When deciding to renovate a home, always be sure to ask for professional and expert help to ensure that even the smallest space, can look amazing with just a few simple changes.

 

Also make sure, that before starting anything, that all your finances are in check and that you have a backup in case of a delay or over runs.

Positive Indicators in Saskatoon Home Market

Year to date, the Saskatoon home market shows positive signs in a few of the key indicators. “There are a few key statistics that we watch ever month to get a sense of where our market is at and where it may be headed” according to Jason Yochim, CEO of the Saskatoon Region Association of REALTORS® .“We keep a close eye on the number of transactions, the inventory levels and the change in pricing.” He adds. 

Year to date home sales are up 4% over 2016 with 558 unit sales. This is comparable to the number of home sales in 2015. The total dollar volume for those sales was just over $186 million, representing a 2% increase over last year. At the end of February, the inventory level for available residential property on the MLS® system in Saskatoon was 1,659 units, 5.4% lower than last year. The lower inventory levels are largely due to a significant drop in the number of new listings added to the MLS® system. So far this year there have been 1,337 new listings in the system compared to 1,410 last year. When comparing new listings for the last month, there were 15.7% fewer properties added to the market this past February than last February. 

A decline in new listings coupled with an increase in sales resulted in a sales-to-listing ratio of 37.4%in February. This is a significant increase from last February where this ratio was 30.9%. A market with a sales-to-listing ratio below 40% is considered to be a solid buyers market. This indicates a positive move towards a more balanced market. “Although we are seeing these positive indicators quite early on, these statistics indicate a shift in the marketplace in a positive direction,” comments Yochim. 

Home prices remain relatively unchanged year to date with the average price down a mere 0.7% to just under $340,000. The median price of $320,000 represents a slight drop of 1.6% year over year. The Home Price Index (HPI) is considered to be the most accurate measure of home values and where the market prices are trending. The HPI composite price is an aggregate of various residential home types in a particular market and is a measurement of change in value over time. A composite value was established with a base year and has been indexed on a monthly basis. The composite value in February was $297,900 representing a 1.2% decrease from a year ago. This value had been on a downward trend since mid-2016 which is not surprising considering elevated inventory levels through the year and a buyers market. 

The average number of days for a home to sell in Saskatoon was 54 days. This is only slightly longer than in 2016 with an average of 52 days. Because today's real estate buyers are well educated on the market, homes are selling at 97% of their asking price which is consistent with last year.

It is always a scary prospect to decide on purchasing a home, either by yourself or with your family. A question that always pops into one’s mind, however, is if they are ready to take such a huge step in their life. Buying a home is definitely something that needs to be thought about and not something done on a whim. Here are a few steps to help you determine if you are ready to begin searching for your new home:
 

1. You are Debt Free

 

When you are debt free, you are definitely ready to purchase a home as you won’t have any other debts to worry about besides your monthly mortgage, which by itself can seem like a massive task. You need to do some major number crunching and determine how much of your income can go towards your mortgage. If it seems like most of your monthly income is going towards paying down your auto loans, student loans and/or credit card debt, now might not be the best time to purchase a home.


2. You can Afford a Down Payment

If you have never bought a house before, you may be wondering what a down payment actually is. A down payment is a percentage of the total cost of the house that you want to purchase, that is paid upfront. This is the biggest challenge most first time home buyers face when looking to purchase a home. You may now by wondering how much this down payment will cost. This amount is usually between $3,000 - $5,000, but the bigger down payment you make, the better it is for you. It can be recommended to you to make a 20% down payment, which may seem impossible. But keep in mind, however, that this is the most ideal down payment as it will help to keep your monthly mortgage check low and manageable. This can greatly benefit you as it shows your mortgage lenders that you have the great ability to save a nice amount of money and that you are serious.


3. The 5 Year Rule


Something to also keep in mind is the knowledge that you want to stay in the same place for at least the next five years. This long-term commitment is really good as it helps to build equity. Equity is the difference between what the appraised value of your home really is, and the balance that it left to be paid for your mortgage. Keep in mind mortgage amortization though, which is how mortgage payments are actually calculated: how much actually goes towards paying off the principle amount and how much goes into paying interest. It is quite depressing to get back the numbers and realize how much of your starting payments go into just paying off interest, but eventually your payments will pay off more of the principle then the interest. Owning a house for five years will help you develop enough equity to sell the house for a profit, which can be used for a bigger down deposit for your next house.

 

4. Emergency Funds

 

Life has its ups and downs, and you need to always be prepared for any kind of setbacks, especially when dealing with financing. A great way to know if you are ready to purchase a home is that you have an emergency fund that can be dipped into in case of an emergency, such as a layoff, car repairs, medical bills etc. It is always a good idea to build yourself a safety net before purchasing a home, such as having six months’ income in a savings account. Keep in mind that this emergency money is to be kept separate from your down payment.


5. You can Afford Associated Fees

 

When purchasing a home, make sure to always keep in the back of your mind that you won’t just be buying the sticker price of the home. There are always several costs that are associated when purchasing a home, and you may not even be aware of some. It would be a really good idea to sit down with your realtor and find out what some of these extra costs could be. Home inspections, closing costs, moving costs, property taxes, home insurance, monthly utility bills, homeowner’s association fees, as well as maintenance, furnishing and any renovation expenses, these are all costs that some new home buyers can overlook that they really shouldn’t.

Positive Start to 2017 Home Sales

Home sales in January were cause for optimism for the year ahead with a 6% increase year over year. Home sales of 185 units last month represented the highest January total since 2014, the five-year average for January is 195. Another positive indicator is the number of homes available for sale. At the end of January, there was a combined total of 1,592 homes for sale in the Saskatoon market, representing the second lowest monthly total in almost two years. The lowest inventory level was December of 2016 with a total of 1,443 properties on the market. “An increase in sales in a typically quiet month is very encouraging” comments Jason Yochim, CEO of the Saskatoon Region Association of REALTORS® “especially in the wake of the tougher mortgage qualifications introduced last October.”

At current inventory levels, anticipating no increase in demand and no new properties listed for sale, it would take over eight months to liquidate the current inventory of properties. The five-year average for available inventory in the Saskatoon market is just under five months. The “sales to listing ratio” is an indicator of whether we are in a buyers or sellers’ market. It is determined by dividing the number of sales by the number of new listings for a period of time. When this ratio is at 50%, the market is considered balance. The last couple of years has favored buyers in the marketplace with an average sales to listing ratio of 40%. January typically has an uptake of listing activity and quieter sales activity which is reflected in a sales to listing ratio at 26%; the five-year average is 30%.

Homes priced below $400,000 saw a much-needed increase in activity compared to last January with 143 sales between $200,000 and $400,000, a 20% increase year over year. The average sale price for January of $341,800 represented a 4% decrease compared to last year. In 2016 a steady number of sales over $750,000 helped stabilize the average price in spite of a 5% decline in sales. This emphasizes that using an average to determine the true market picture is easily misleading. The median price for last month was $318,500 which was the lowest median price in almost five years. A more reliable indicator of the market is the MLS® Home Price Index® (HPI). It is considered to be the most accurate determinant of where a real estate market is trending. The HPI composite benchmark price has also been trending downward, although very slightly for several months. 

In January, on average it takes 54 days to sell a home in Saskatoon which is consistent with the five-year average of 51 days. This compares to 45 days which is the average of the past 5 years. “In any market, a home that is priced to current market conditions should sell in even less time, often within a week or two.” comments Yochim. “Buyers are well educated on the market and are not fooled by optimistic sellers. However, they are willing to pay market price for the right home in any market. For homes that are selling, the sale prices are being realized within 97% of the asking price.”

Accurate Pricing Key in Successful 2017 Market

Year over year unit sales for the city of Saskatoon saw a 7% decline in 2016. As at December 31, there was a total of 3,679 transactions recorded versus 3,933 in 2015. The total dollar volume for Saskatoon also indicated a 7% decline by years end. There was also a decline in the number of new listings in 2016 of 5% with 9,290 properties placed on the MLS system in Saskatoon last year. In other words, 38% of the homes that were listed ended up selling which is considered a firm buyers’ market. This ratio is what is referred to as a sales-to-listing ratio. A ‘balanced market’ is when one home sells for every two listed and is considered a balanced market at a 50% sales-to–listing ratio. The market for the month of December was in balanced territory with 191 sales and 392 new listings.

The market surrounding Saskatoon which includes the cities of Martensville and Warman saw a year end decline in unit sales by 11% with a total of 1,010 sales by December 31. The total number of new listings for 2016 in the markets outside of Saskatoon was 3,192, a sales-to-listing ration of just under 32%. The city of Martensville saw a 10% increase in unit sales in 2016 while Warman saw a whopping 35% decrease in units sold from 2015 to 2016. Other bedroom communities surrounding Saskatoon saw very little change in units sold year over year.

A home in Saskatoon took an average of 51 days to sell realizing 96.7% of the asking price on average. “There are buyers out there who are ready to act and are willing to pay market value.” Comments Jason Yochim, CEO, Saskatoon Region Association of REALTORS®, “What this tells me is that if a seller is serious about selling their home the best thing they can do is get sound advice on pricing to the current market we are in. The result is a quicker sale for the maximum sale price. Buyers are well educated and not often fooled into overpaying.” He adds.

The average selling price for a home in Saskatoon in 2016 was just over $350,000 which was only a decline of 1% compared to the average selling price of $354,000 in 2015. This average price was maintained by a year over year increase in the number of homes that sold over $750,000.

The MLS® Home Price Index® is considered to be the most accurate determinant of where a real estate market is trending. The composite benchmark value is an aggregate value of various property types and is used to compare changes in market values and trends. The composite benchmark value has been trending downward slightly since August of 2016. The composite value of $299,700 is down 1.6% from the same period in 2015 and looks to continue downward for the near future.

“2017 is not likely to see a significant change in market conditions, however being properly informed on what those market conditions are and how to properly price is where one of our REALTOR® members is invaluable” adds Yochim. “One of the best ways to stimulate an economy is through a home sale. The average home sale in Saskatchewan generates nearly $50,000 in spin off economic activity. Multiply that by 3,700 transactions.” He adds. REALTORS® also subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are dedicated to developing professional standards and continuing education in the real estate profession.

The month of November saw a decline in sales activity as well as new listings coming on the market in Saskatoon and region. Total dollar volume year to date was $1.65 B, a 4% reduction from 2015 and 18% lower than the same period in 2014.The number of homes that sold in Saskatoon for November was 243 units representing a 14% reduction compared to November 2015. As of the end of last month there was a cumulative total of 3,489 home sales, this is 7% lower than a year ago. The number of homes listed for sale to the end of November 2016 was 8,897. Currently there are1,687 residential properties available for sale in Saskatoon, only the month of January had less product available with 1,612 units. At the current level of sales it would take nearly seven months to liquidate this inventory.

 

 The average selling price continues to remain virtually unchanged at just over $350,000. Two years ago the average selling price two years ago by comparison was $357,000, at a time when the market was more active. “An increase in sales in the higher end homes has helped to support the average price in the Saskatoon market” states Jason Yochim, CEO with the Saskatoon Region Association of REALTORS®. Sales in every price range below $750,000 saw decreases in unit sales however homes priced above that increased year over year. For sales over $1M there were 25 units sold year to date compared to 13 units a year ago. Homes in the price range between $750-800,000 were up 50% year to date over 2015.

 

 The current sales to listing ratio for November was 37% which is firmly a buyers’ market as it has been all year. Homes are currently taking 50 days on average to sell in Saskatoon with sellers realizing 97% of the asking price. “These statistics tell me that sellers who price to the market will realize a sale in much less time than the average of 50 days and close to their asking price. Those who do not price to market are typically responsible for the low sales to listing ratio.” Comments Yochim. “Buyers are more educated than at any other time and typically know where the market is at.

 There are positives in this quieter real estate market. The recent selling out of the much awaited River Landing condominium project in less than four days proves that location, location, location is key in any market conditions. This occurred in spite of an oversupplied condominium market with somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 multi-family units available for sale.

 

 “The best advice I can give to those who are needing to sell is to get sound pricing, marketing and timing advice from a professionally licensed and trained REALTOR® member of The Saskatoon Region Association of REALTORS®. Real estate is local to specific markets in Saskatoon and every seller’s situation is unique. Impartial and objective advice is critical in a successful sale of residential real estate.” cautions Yochim. REALTORS® also subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are dedicated to developing professional standards and continuing education in the real estate profession.
