    • Selling Your Home? Understanding Pricing Strategy


      There’s no substitute for the pricing skills of a real estate professional, but home sellers often disagree as to the price their agent advises. Recent findings from the Journal of Housing Research, a publication by the American Real Estate Society (ARES), may impart some understanding.

      According to the research, the most effective sale price is one that is just below a round number—$199,000, say, as opposed to $200,000. The difference, though negligible to the seller, is generally positively perceived by the buyer.

      “We tested the age-old debate concerning the best technique to price a home when listing it for sale,” says Michael J. Seiler of The College of William and Mary, who conducted the research. “We find that using a price just below a round number works best, particularly in connection to the left-most digit in the price—so, $199,000 works better than $200,000.”

      “On average, buyers are more attracted to a house priced at $199,000 than to a house priced at $200,000, and it appears that ‘just below’ pricing works out favorably for sellers in terms of their bottom line,” adds Eli Beracha of Florida International University, who also conducted the research. “Based on our research, the ‘just below’ pricing strategy yields a selling price that is, on average, roughly 2.5 to 3 percent higher—$5,000 to $6,000 on a $200,000 house—compared with a rounded pricing listing strategy.

      “Our study suggests that by using the ‘just below’ pricing strategy, sellers can price their home slightly higher without driving away potential buyers,” Beracha notes. “As a result, they end up selling their house for more.”

      In light of these findings, it’s important to remember that real estate professionals set prices after careful consideration of market data and trends—their recommendation, ultimately, is what will sell the home fastest and for the best price.

    • The Top Markets for Pet Owners


      Eighty million households in America own at least one pet—that’s a lot of animals! Some housing markets are more pet-friendly than others, with more pet care businesses and providers available than in other areas.

      Based on those criteria, WalletHub.com compiled the top 10 “Most Pet-Friendly Cities” in the country:

      1. Orlando, Fla.
      2. Birmingham, Ala.
      3. Tampa, Fla.
      4. Lexington, Ky.
      5. Scottsdale, Ariz.
      6. Reno, Nev.
      7. Colorado Springs, Colo.
      8. Cincinnati, Ohio
      9. Las Vegas, Nev.
      10. St. Louis, Mo.

      Orlando comes in at No. 1 for its high density of veterinarians—65.6 per every 100,000 residents. Orlando also boasts the highest density of pet-related businesses, at 172.25 per 100,000 residents.

      Scottsdale, Ariz., No. 5 on the list, has the highest number animal shelters per 100,000 residents: 6.26.

      Many markets not in the top 10 are pet-friendly, as well—the least expensive pet care costs can be found in Stockton, Calif., where a veterinary visit averages just $32.92, and the least expensive dog insurance premiums ($21.63 per month) can be found in St. Paul, Minn., also not in the top 10.

    • What to Buy—and Not Buy—over Labor Day Weekend


      Amazon Prime’s “Black Friday in July” sale was a major win for both the retailer and shoppers—and prompted a number of big-box and department stores to ante up sales of their own. More savings opportunities are in store this Labor Day Weekend.

      According to NerdWallet, the best bargains will be on:

      Cars – Not surprisingly, car dealers will blow out this year’s models to make room for 2017 stock.

      Kitchen Appliances – New models of refrigerators and other kitchen appliances come out just after Labor Day, as well, making the holiday weekend prime time to score deals.

      Wines – Wine lovers know early September is the best time to stock the wine cellar. Major retailers offer their best deals now to make room for the newest vintage bottles.

      The worst items to purchase over the weekend, on the other hand, are:

      Cookware – Save the most on cookware in November and December, which are historically the months with the best prices.

      Outdoor Grills/Patio Furniture – The further away from summer we get, the more desperate retailers are to make room for winter goods. You’ll have fewer grills and furniture to select from, but prices will be at rock-bottom.

      Electronics – Labor Day sale ads often tout deals on electronics for back-to-school, but the best time to get a deep discount on them is later in the year, during the regular Black Friday sales frenzy. If you're shopping for a television, computer, laptop, video game system, camcorder, GPS navigator or digital camera, the end-of-year discounts are worth the wait.

    • Natural Disaster Risk and Its Impact on Housing


      No area is safe from a natural disaster—but some lesser-prone areas are safe from a market downswing, according to a recently released report by ATTOM Data Solutions.

      An area’s propensity for natural disaster can impact its home prices and sales, reported the ATTOM Natural Hazard Housing Index, which ranks over 3,000 counties according to level of risk for earthquakes, floods, hail, hurricane storm surge, tornadoes and wildfires. The counties with the lowest level of natural hazard risk, based on the Index, are concentrated in Wisconsin:

      1. Milwaukee County, Wis.
      2. Kewaunee County, Wis.
      3. Racine County, Wis.
      4. Knox County, Maine
      5. Kenosha County, Wis.

      The counties with the highest level of natural hazard risk, based on the Index, are:

      1. Oklahoma County, Okla.
      2. Monroe County, Fla.
      3. Cleveland County, Okla.
      4. Nevada County, Calif.
      5. Lake County, Calif.

      Home sales in counties with the lowest level of natural hazard risk have risen over 4 percent this year, whereas sales in counties with the highest level of natural risk have risen just shy of 2 percent; concurrently, home prices in counties with the lowest level of natural risk have increased approximately 3 percent, while home prices in counties with the highest level of natural risk have increased over 6 percent.

      In the lowest-risk counties, the median sales price of a single-family home or condo sold this year was $156,245—in the highest-risk counties, that number jumps to $255,160.

      Areas prone to earthquakes, flooding, hurricanes and wildfires have seen less home sales activity overall in the last five years—areas prone to hail and tornadoes, on the other hand, have seen the opposite.

    • Is It Time for a New A/C?


      Summer’s nearing its end—did your air conditioning system deliver?

      If not, it may be time to replace the unit. According to Howard Schwartz of the Connecticut Better Business Bureau (BBB), the average lifespan of a central air conditioning system is between 15 and 20 years. One sure sign it’s time to pull the plug? If repair bills have been adding up, Schwartz says.

      New air conditioning systems reduce carbon emissions, require 30 to 50 percent less energy to operate, and run quieter than older units. Schwartz and the BBB advise the following tips when shopping for a replacement system:

      Don't go for the lowest price. A low price doesn’t always equal the best value. A higher efficiency system might cost an extra $800 up-front, but could save you $300 per year in energy costs. Seek out manufacturer rebates, if available.

      Consider a maintenance contract. A maintenance contract can come in handy when a system needs repairs, especially at inconvenient times, like during a heat wave.

      Install a programmable thermostat. A programmable thermostat can help you save even more money by controlling the temperature even when you aren’t home.

      To find a qualified HVAC contractor near you, visit BBB.org and consult your region’s Accredited Business Directory, Schwartz concludes.
