Dreaming of a Luxury Home? Now’s the Time!

If your house no longer fits your needs and you are planning on buying a luxury home, now is a great time to do so! Recently, the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing released its Luxury Market Report which showed that in today’s premium home market, buyers are in control.

The inventory of homes for sale in the luxury market far exceeds the number of people searching to purchase these properties in many areas of the country. This means that homes are often staying on the market longer or can be found at a discount.

Those who have a starter or trade-up home to sell will find buyers competing, and often entering bidding wars, to be able to call their house their new home.

The sale of your starter or trade-up house will help you come up with a larger down payment for your new luxury home. Even a 5% down payment on a million-dollar home is $50,000.

But not all who are buying luxury properties have a home to sell first.

A recent Bloomberg article gave some insight into what many millennials are choosing to do:

“A new generation of affluent homebuyers powered by a surge in inherited wealth is driving the luxury-home market, demanding larger spaces and fancier finishes, according to a report heralding ‘the rise of the new aristocracy.’”

 

Moving-Up to a Luxury Home? Now’s the Time!

If your house no longer fits your needs and you are planning on buying a luxury home, now is a great time to do so! We recently shared data from Trulia’s Market Mismatch Study which showed that in today’s premium home market, buyers are in control.

The inventory of homes for sale in the luxury market far exceeds those searching to purchase these properties in many areas of the country. This means that homes are often staying on the market longer which can eventually lead to a price change.

Those who have a starter or trade-up home to sell will find buyers competing, and often entering bidding wars, to be able to call your house their new home.

The sale of your starter or trade-up house will aid in coming up with a larger down payment for your new luxury home. Even a 5% down payment on a million-dollar home is $50,000.

But not all who are buying luxury properties have a home to sell first.

In a Washington Post article, Daryl Judy, an associate broker with Washington Fine Properties, gave some insight into what many millennials are choosing to do:

“Some high-earning millennials save money until they are in their early 30s to buy a place and just skip over that starter-home phase. They’ll stay in an apartment until they can afford to pay for the place they want.”

 

Testimonials

Anna was amazing. She was on top of every aspect, always in touch, very communicative, and handled every detail quickly and thoroughly. I had been swayed to use another realtor before Anna, based on the other agency's exposure. BIG mistake!! In 4 months with the other realtor, only 1 person saw my house. Within the first few weeks with Anna, I already had showings. In the end, I had three offers and Anna helped me secure the best price. I could not be more pleased. Anna impressed me every step of the way. 

- Jan Peppler

Working with Anna is a pleasure. She is exceptionally responsive and felt totally engaged with us from the time that we first looked at a house throughout closing and our move. Anna was adept at negotiating with a difficult seller. She was meticulous in maintaining contact with our lender to ensure that everything was in order throughout the closing process. We recommend Anna highly.

- Tom & Erin Howland

I was extremely happy with the knowledge and effort Anna took in selling my home. The advertising and open houses resulted in a fast sale at a price I was very happy with. All follow up with buyer and any issues were resolved with satisfaction. I would definitely use Anna's service again if selling or buying a home.

– Debby Kinder

 

If you want a real estate agent with intelligence and integrity who will work 110% for you, Anna is the one! When we decided to move from the East coast to Hailey to be with family, we were unsure whether to buy or build a home. Our daughter, who has lived in Hailey for many years, recommended contacting Anna and she sent us a list of reputable builders as well as a real estate buyer's guide full of information about her agency, the local real estate market and current & sold listings. After arriving in Hailey, Anna advised us on buying vs. building a house, showed us the properties we were interested in and shared her knowledge about Hailey. When we decided to make an offer on a building lot, she negotiated for us and guided us through the complexities of purchasing real estate. She even made a point of attending the closing on our lot and called to tell us when the sale had been recorded! In summary, Anna was exceptional in taking initiative, communicating, providing information, keeping in touch and guiding us through the process of making the right decision. We are very grateful to Anna Mathieu for her help in getting us started in our new life in Hailey.

– Ted & Martha Schwerdtle

I had the best experience ever working with Anna! She was very communicative and professional, and was extremely proactive and creative in marketing my property. After languishing on the market for six months with a previous agent, it seemed that my lot's prospects were not bright. I was hesitant to sign another agent, thinking that perhaps the timing was wrong, or the pricing was incorrect. But Anna researched the market thoroughly, relisted my property at my previous asking price, worked to get the property publicity, and sold it within one month! I highly recommend her as a listing agent!!

- Barbara B Bentley

 

Anna was amazing through a very tough deal that lasted way longer than it ever should have. My husband and I were as close as you could get to walking away, not once but twice, and Anna used her knowledge, creativity, and genuine passion of her job to find workable solutions for all parties involved. To her we are most grateful and have to say to you Anna - A very belated but genuine THANK YOU for all you did to help us get that condo! It was one of the strangest emotional roller coasters we’d ever experienced, but your calm intelligent and positive force kept the deal alive and now our babies have a home in their birth state, really and truly thank you so very much! 

– Heather & Tim Filgate

 

 

Anna was extremely helpful and proactive in helping me with the sale of my home. The transaction required skillful navigation of multiple contractual, zoning, and property issues which Anna handled capably. She was fantastic at every stage of the process; from market research, to pricing, to marketing and through closing. I would recommend Anna to anyone and she would be the 1st person I reach out to if/when I'm in the market again.

- Jon Piggins 

Anna was fantastic. My husband and I both enjoyed working with her. At the beginning of our house hunt she spent a lot of time getting to know what was important to us and what we wanted out of our house. As the process continued, she helped keep us on track with our price range and home wish list. She understood our wants even more than we did! The house we purchased was not even on my list, Anna added it as a home for us to look at because she just knew we would love it... And we did!!! Anna was so knowledgeable about the home buying process and was always so quick to respond. She also helped us find our mortgage broker, who was also fantastic, Ana Torres at Mortgage Solutions. When it came time to put in an offer and negotiate, Anna was again fantastic. She provided us with all the information we needed to make an offer we felt great about! If I ever buy another home I will hire Anna again, and I encourage you to do the same.
