How Long Do Families Stay in a Home?

by Desi Sowers

 

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) keeps historic data on many aspects of homeownership. One of the data points that has changed dramatically is the median tenure of a family in a home. As the graph below shows, for over twenty years (1985-2008), the median tenure averaged exactly six years. However, since 2008, that average is almost nine years – an increase of almost 50%.

Why the dramatic increase?

The reasons for this change are plentiful. The top two reasons are:

However, with home prices rising dramatically over the last several years, over 90% of homes with a mortgage are now in a positive equity situation with 70% of them having at least 20% equity.
  1. The fall in home prices during the housing crisis left many homeowners in a negative equity situation (where their home was worth less than the mortgage on the property).
  2. The uncertainty of the economy made some homeowners much more fiscally conservative about making a move.

And, with the economy coming back and wages starting to increase, many homeowners are in a much better financial situation than they were just a few short years ago.

What does this mean for housing?

Many believe that a large portion of homeowners are not in a house that is best for their current family circumstances. They could be baby boomers living in an empty, four-bedroom colonial, or a millennial couple planning to start a family that currently lives in a one-bedroom condo.

These homeowners are ready to make a move. Since the lack of housing inventory is a major challenge in the current housing market, this could be great news.

Columbus Day Holiday!

by Desi Sowers

The Columbus Day holiday is a New River Valley VA extravaganza for retail merchants. It is a federal holiday in the United States when typically banks, post offices and federal offices are closed. If you happen to have the day off and would like to talk about buying or selling a home, give us a call; we are open!

Here are a few fun facts about Columbus Day:

  • Columbus Day is the celebration of Christopher Columbus landing on the shores of the United States in the year 1492… you know how the song goes! “Columbus sailed the Ocean Blue in 1492; he sailed he sailed the Ocean Blue in 1492.”
  • This day of observance became a state holiday in Colorado in 1906, and in 1937 the day became a federal holiday.  Why Colorado? You ask? Well, a first-generation Italian living in Colorado at the time lobbied the governor, and the first Columbus Day of resignation was born.
  • To this day, many Italian-Americans celebrate Columbus Day in honor of their heritage.
  • Hawaii, Alaska, Oregon and the state of South Dakota do not recognize this day as a legal holiday. But, (now this is government lingo…) Hawaii and South Dakota “mark the day with an alternative holiday or observance.” Iowa and Nevada are also on this list of states that do not recognize the Columbus Day festivities.
  • In Italy, Columbus Day has been officially celebrated the “National Day of Christopher Columbus” since 2004. The Art Gallery of Como opens her doors on each October 12th, allowing visitors to view and admire the portrait of Columbus.
  • The second Monday in the month of October is deemed the official Columbus Day.
  • In Puerto Rico, Columbus Day is celebrated along with Puerto Rico Friendship Day.
  • In Virginia, Columbus Day is celebrated along with Yorktown Victory Day.
  • New York City has the largest parade to celebrate the day.

I hope you’re enjoying the day and you have off as well! Give me a call 540-320-1328 or visit my website to Discover your new home.
