iBuyers: A new choice for home sellers but at what cost? | Collateral Analytics

iBuyers: A new choice for home sellers but at what cost? | Collateral Analytics | SAN ANTONIO HOMES TODAY | Scoop.it
These preliminary empirical results suggest that sellers are paying not just the difference in fees of 2% to 5% more than with traditional agencies, and a generous repair allowance, but another 3% to 5% or more to compensate the iBuyer for liquidity risks and carrying costs. In all, the typical cost to a seller appears to be in the range of 13% to 15% depending on the iBuyer vendor. For some sellers, needing to move or requiring quick extraction of equity, this is certainly worthwhile, but what percentage of the market will want this service remains to be seen.

Convenience has a price. Are you willing to give up a chunk of your equity for convenience? And, pay the “price”?

San Antonio West Side developers were subdivision pioneers

San Antonio West Side developers were subdivision pioneers | SAN ANTONIO HOMES TODAY | Scoop.it
Down payments ranged from $112.50 (for land only) to $600 (for multiple lots), according to real-estate transaction reports, but the typical deposit as advertised was $250 with monthly payments of $30 to $35 for a completed spec house on a lot. The company sold new houses from 1912 through the mid-1920s. Most, at least originally, were homesteads, although some were bought in groups as rental properties. Because Alamo Home Builders offered its own financing, it got some of the houses back through foreclosure and promptly resold them.

Realtor.com®: Housing Boom Is Officially Back

Realtor.com®: Housing Boom Is Officially Back | SAN ANTONIO HOMES TODAY | Scoop.it
Housing prices have returned to the “boom levels” of a decade ago, but this time around, the fast appreciation is being fueled by strong supply-and-demand dynamics rather than predatory lending practices, investor speculation, and too much construction, according to new realtor.com® data released Monday.

“As we compare today’s market dynamics to those of a decade ago, it’s important to remember rising prices didn’t cause the housing crash,” says realtor.com® Chief Economist Danielle Hale. “It was rising prices stoked by subprime and low-documentation mortgages, as well as people looking for short-term gains—versus today’s truer market vitality—that created the environment for the crash.”
