About 48 Main Street, Camden, Maine 04843

If you don’t make new friends on the 1st day you’re sitting out on the front porch of this home watching the ebb and flow of walkers and slow traffic, it won’t be for lack of opportunity. This 5-BR home in the village center has superb rental history because it’s tethered to the fun and activity Camden’s known for. A cheery “antique” house in great shape with updated kitchen and baths, plus a private backyard and detached 2-car garage. But who needs a car though, just blocks from the harbor, stores, and restaurants?

Lack of Homes for Sale Slowing Down the Housing Market

Lack of Homes for Sale Slowing Down the Housing Market | Keeping Current Matters

The housing crisis is finally in the rear-view mirror as the real estate market moves down the road to a complete recovery. Home values are up. Home sales are up. Distressed sales (foreclosures and short sales) have fallen dramatically. It seems that 2017 will be the year that the housing market races forward again.

However, there is one thing that may cause the industry to tap the brakes: a lack of housing inventory. While buyer demand looks like it will remain strong throughout the winter, supply is not keeping up.

Here are the thoughts of a few industry experts on the subject:

National Association of Realtors

“Total housing inventory at the end of December dropped 10.8%…which is the lowest level since NAR began tracking the supply of all housing types in 1999. Inventory has fallen year-over-year for 19 straight months and is at a 3.6-month supply at the current sales pace.”

Jonathan Smoke, Chief Economist for Realtor.com

“More than two-thirds of the markets are seeing less inventory now compared to a year ago.”

Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at NAR:

“The dismal number of listings in the affordable price range is squeezing prospective first-time buyers the most. As a result, young households are missing out on the wealth gains most homeowners have accrued from the 41% cumulative rise in existing home prices since 2011.”

Sam Khater, Deputy Chief Economist at CoreLogic

“The lack of affordable supply is really driving up home prices.”

Peter Muoio, Chief Economist at Auction.com

“Tight housing inventory remains a constraining factor limiting stronger sales growth…

We expect further price growth to entice more homeowners to list their homes, particularly as existing homeowners have greater equity.”

Bottom Line 

If you are thinking of selling, now may be the time. Demand for your house will be strong at a time when there is very little competition. That could lead to a quick sale for a really good price.

#1 in Maine For Waterfront Property Sales in 2016

Maine Real Estate (January 25, 2017) – Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, with offices in Portland, Kennebunk, Brunswick, Damariscotta, and Camden, announced today that it again retained the #1 Ranking for 2016 Waterfront  Property sales in Maine. The company reported it was successful in closing more Maine Waterfront Properties than any other real estate company in the State. Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty closed 258 transaction sides totaling $198.3 million in total property value. According to Maine Listings, the statistics also show that the company held a very substantial lead over the #2 participant by more than 35% in terms of dollar volume sold.

“Maine Waterfront Property has always been an important area of focus for our company” said Chris Lynch, President. “We approach real estate with a Maine lifestyle angle that helps the rest of the world appreciate what a beautiful place Maine is to live, work, recreate, and enjoy. Our lake front and ocean front homes, with our beautiful proprietary professional photography, 3D virtual tours, aerial videography, and overall property presentation have had a tremendous impact on our success!”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty also reports that it is looking to expand its reach into Maine’s Lake Region area.  With more than 6,000 lakes and ponds in Maine, the company sees growth opportunities for sellers looking to get more regional, national, and international exposure when selling their homes.  “The Lakes Region is a great fit for our business” adds Lynch. “But it does not stop there, we see several Maine lakes, such as Sebago Lake, the Belgrade Lakes, the Rangeley Lakes, Long Lake, Thompson Lake, Damariscotta Lake, and Megunticook Lake, as just a few of the many Maine lakes that fit our branding and marketing very well.”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty attributes its success to offering its clients a very strong package of marketing services including critical professional photography, 3D Virtual Tours, glossy print advertising, global property distribution through its exclusive network of agents, and luxury branding through its affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty.  It also brings a very experienced and professional broker base of high service, high touch and personalized attention to its clients. “It is very rare that one finds a lock box at one of our listings. Our agents want to be at the showings so they can sell the house and its unique features and lifestyle attributes” says Lynch.

“It is important to note that we are a Maine real estate company first and foremost” Lynch concludes. “We are engaged in many aspects of the market and not exclusively oceanfront or lakefront properties. Our focus is to offer distinctive properties at all prices and to present them in a way that a buyer, regardless of where they begin their search, can find our listings and gather enough relevant information to make a big decision as to whether to proceed with a showing and ultimately an offer to purchase the property. Our intent is to make the process very buyer friendly.”
