What’s happening behind the curtain of Zillow Instant Offers

USA Real Estate News-Inman - Tue, 2017-05-23 16:59
Zillow’s announcement about its Instant Offers program was a big deal. I think it will be remembered as a moment in real estate history when the industry veered in a new direction, the catalyst for a shift in focus and new perspective around how people sell their homes, rather than something scary. During the week, some funny and interesting stuff (gossip, in some cases) happened behind the curtain. ...

Free Report: The Power of Real Estate IRA Investments

USA Real Estate News-RISMedia - Tue, 2017-05-23 15:08

Entrust clients have a long track record—35 years—of investing in real estate using their tax-advantaged retirement savings accounts. Part of our mission is to educate investors, and our new real estate report is a prime example of that effort. The report’s detailed analysis of both purchases and sales data is a valuable tool for investors, financial and retirement advisors, and real estate professionals.

For example, we now know that real estate investment using self-directed accounts is catching on in new parts of the country. In 2016, Missouri made its first appearance among the top five states where Entrust clients bought property. On the sales side, Tennessee and New Mexico broke into the top five.

Single and multifamily properties continued to be the preferred type of property bought (78 percent) and sold (71 percent). Because rental revenue is often a goal of real estate investors, the report also contains insights into the national rental market, courtesy of Zillow.

You can use a Traditional or Roth self-directed IRA to invest in real estate, and most clients choose one of those two vehicles—although in 2016, we noticed a growing number of clients using Individual 401(k) accounts for their real estate investments.

You’ll find more useful information and interesting insights when you download your FREE copy of Entrust’s 2017 Real Estate Investor Market Research Report.

Learning From the Best

USA Real Estate News-RISMedia - Tue, 2017-05-23 15:07

In the following interview, Daniel Cottingham, broker of Cottingham Chalk Hayes, REALTORS®, a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® in Charlotte, N.C., discusses the firm’s culture, recruitment tactics and training techniques.

Region Served: Greater Charlotte, N.C.
Years in Real Estate: 13
Number of Offices: 1
Number of Agents: 100+
Best Tip for Dealing With Difficult Customers: Listen, empathize and advise.

You recently transitioned from the sales side of the business to a role in management. How would you describe the process?
Things have gone really well, and I think that’s because we spent a lot of time planning the transition. I focused on evaluating everything we do, making slight tweaks if necessary, and intentionally avoiding any sweeping changes. Some things seemed so obvious from the sales side, but when I switched hats, the issues were more complex. The biggest challenge came on the personal front. Being in the office all day is much different than being out in the field with buyers and sellers. I was used to the highs and lows of the sales side, and I’ve had to find other outlets to feed my competitiveness.

What are the two most important aspects of your company’s culture that will propel your team to the next level?
The Golden Rule is at the heart of everything we do. Our agents understand that we’re fully committed to doing the right thing and to helping them accomplish their goals. As a result, they share that commitment among each other and their clients. It’s servant leadership at its best, and it’s why prospective agents call us, and, ultimately, why buyers and sellers call our agents.

How do you go about recruiting, and in what ways does your company culture help you qualify the best prospects?
Everyone we interview initiates the conversation. We don’t reach out to agents at other firms or students in licensing classes, so when they come in to talk, they generally have an understanding of our brand and our culture. My goal is to be a resource to help them navigate the process and find the best fit.

What sets your training program apart, and how does it position agents for success right out of the gate?
Our training program is probably the best representation of our servant leadership culture because it’s taught almost exclusively by our top-producing agents. They volunteer their time to come talk about a variety of topics ranging from open houses and staging to negotiating and community involvement. As a new agent, it doesn’t get much better than learning from the best.

Rents Appreciating Faster in Suburbs as Demand Intensifies

USA Real Estate News-RISMedia - Tue, 2017-05-23 15:06

Renters up against ballooning costs in sought-after cities have steadily spread outward for rent relief—but now, costs are climbing in areas outside of cities, too.

In fact, according to a recently released report by Zillow, rent appreciation is accelerating faster in suburban areas than urban ones, with the median rental cost in suburban areas up 2.5 percent year-over-year, while the median rental cost in urban areas is up 2.3 percent.

“Because walkable urban centers close to amenities are typically a big draw for renters, you’d expect rents to rise faster in the city than in the suburbs—which is exactly what we’ve been seeing until very recently,” says Dr. Svenja Gudell, chief economist at Zillow, “but a handful of factors are helping turn the tables and beginning to push suburban rents up at a higher clip. These include deteriorating rental affordability in expensive urban cores; new apartments, albeit high-end ones, opening downtown compared to relatively few in outlying areas; and preferences among some renters toward the space offered by single-family homes in the suburbs.”

The difference represents a shift from one year ago, when urban rental costs were up 5 percent year-over-year and suburban rental costs were up 3 percent. There are starker disparities in appreciation in in-demand urban areas and their suburban counterparts, including in Nashville, Tenn., and San Francisco, Calif.

“Rents themselves are still lower in the suburbs, but if demand keeps growing for suburban rentals and supply continues to lag, that will also start to change,” Gudell says. “As more formerly urban renters move to the suburbs in coming years, we’ll likely start seeing more apartment buildings and walkable amenities popping up in those communities.”
