HomeGain Releases 4th Quarter Florida Home Prices Survey Results

Yesterday, HomeGain, one of he first companies to provide free instant home valuations online, released the national and regional results of our fourth quarter home prices survey of nearly 1000 HomeGain current and former members. The survey asked their opinions on home values and what they thought of President Obama’s performance as President so far. On the HomeGain real estate blog we published the full survey results, including Realtor commentary and charts.  Yesterday, we published the results of the fourth quarter Texas home prices and California home prices survey results.

Today we are releasing the Florida home prices survey data.

The survey shows that nearly half of home buyers in the Sunshine state believe that home prices are either fairly priced or just 1-10% over priced (46%) vs 42% who thought so in the third quarter Florida home prices survey. In the third quarter, 36% of home buyers thought home prices were over priced by 10-20% vs 23% who so thought so in the fourth quarter.

In the fourth quarter 23% of home buyers thought home prices were fairly valued vs. 24%  who so believed in the third quarter, vs. 18% who so believed in the second quarter  Florida home prices survey and vs. 15% who so believed in the first quarter Florida home prices survey. (see question 3)

The percentage of Florida Realtors surveyed in the fourth quarter who believe that home prices in their state will decrease in the next six months decreased sharply from the third quarter  with 34%  believing that home values will fall in the next six months vs. 46% who so believed in the second quarter. (see question 6)

President Obama’s approval rating continued to fall among Florida Realtors with 65% “strongly” (52%) or “somewhat” (13%) disapproving of the President’s performance up from a disapproval rating of 57% in the third quarter and 45% in the second quarter. This represents a divergence from the national average in which 56% of surveyed Realtors expressed their disapproval (see question 10)

Set forth below is the first, second, third and fourth quarter Florida home prices data with the national data in parenthesis: (click on each question to see complete results):

  1. Have home prices increased, decreased or stayed the same in the last year?
  2. On average, what do homeowners believe that their home is worth?
  3. How do buyers feel that homes for sale are priced?
  4. What is the average difference in price between what sellers believe their home to be worth and the amount at which the home gets listed?
  5. What is the average difference in price between what a home is listed at and what a home sells for?
  6. In the next six months, will the values of homes in your market increase, decrease or stay the same?
  7. What percentage of homes for sale are foreclosures in your area?
  8. What is the average home price in your area?
  9. What percentage of your clients are first-time buyers?
  10. How do you as a Realtor think Barack Obama is performing in his role as President?

HomeGain Releases 3rd Qtr Florida Home Prices Survey

Yesterday, HomeGain, the first company to provide free instant home valuations online, released the national and regional results of our third quarter home prices survey of nearly 1100 HomeGain current and former members. The survey asked their opinions on home values and what they thought of President Obama’s performance as President so far. On the HomeGain real estate blog we published the full survey results.  Yesterday, we published the results of the third quarter California home prices survey.

Today we are releasing the Florida home prices survey data.

The survey shows an increase in the percentage of home buyers who believe that home prices are fairly valued. In the third quarter 24% of buyers thought home prices in the Sunshine state were fairly valued, vs 18% who so believed in the second quarter  Florida home prices survey and and 15% who so believed in the first quarter Florida home prices survey. (see question 3)

The percentage of Florida Realtors surveyed in the third quarter who believe that home prices in their state will decrease in the next six months increased sharply from the second quarter  with 46% of believing that home values will fall in the next six months vs. 24% who so believed in the second quarter. (see question 6)

President Obama’s approval rating fell among Florida Realtors from 57% in the second quarter to 43% in the third quarter. This is roughly inline with the national drop in the President’s approval rating. (see question 9)

The Cost of Internet Success

 

I know that there are so many of you out there who read this blog and are excited about taking your business to the “next level” by using the Internet. 

Lately, at The eHomes Realty Network, I have been getting a lot of inquiries about the cost to get your Internet business off the ground.  Below are your basic costs to get going.  The marketing program you choose will vary from area to area. 

Website

I’m a big believer in using “template websites”.  There are many choices in custom websites also, but I prefer to put my money into marketing and generating business.  Most template websites are 90% customizable, affordable and already have a ton of generic content.  You can easily spend $10,000 – $20,000 on a custom site. 

IDX

Over 90% of the real estate leads we capture at Tropical Realty of Suntree are from people registering to view home listings on our website.  I highly recommend an IDX vendor versus your free MLS providers IDX.   There are multiple IDX companies available.  HomeGain offers an IDX website with their AIMS product. We will be launching our 100MPH Marketing Software in about a month for the state of Florida.  However, it won’t be available nationwide for some time.  I also recommend iHomefinder.com. Their tool is very easy to use, reliable and has a good capture mechanism. 

Pay Per Click

Using pay per click can be very costly if you don’t know what you are doing.  If you are using Google and/or Yahoo!, Continue reading this post
