Pricing Nation Forecasts That The Average Home Values in Boston MSA Will Go Up in March 2014 by 1.45 Percent

Pricing Nation Econometrics forecasts that the average home value in the Boston Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) will increase by 1.45% through the next twelve months. Some of the drivers of local change include homeowner vacancies and average weekly wages.  While there is a decline in supply (52.4% decrease in vacancies from Q3 to Q4 2012), there is not much improvement in the average weekly earnings (0.42% increase from Q3 to Q4 2012), which suppresses growth.

A table with the top 5 biggest increases and decreases per average home value per zip code can be found below. The Pricing Nation Econometrics Heat Map (also below) visualizes how the average home prices will vary across zip codes in the Boston MSA. Pricing Nation Econometrics is a division of Pricing Nation LLC, and more information can be found at www.pricingnation.com.

As the “Most Reliable Real-Estate Forecasting Company,” we strive to consistently provide the most accurate, relevant, and transparent real-estate data.

WhatNewHomes.com Reveal Survey Of Most Sought After UK Locations To Raise Children

UK property website WhatNewHomes has just announced the results of a survey seeking to find out the best UK towns and villages in which to raise a family. The survey, which takes into account a comprehensive array of factors including childcare costs, crime statistics, schools and house prices, compared over 2,500 different UK postcodes.

The top ‘performing’ location according to the survey, is a village called Winkleigh, in the county of Devon, a county that has become one of the most desirable parts of the UK to move to, and forms part of the ‘English Riviera’.

The village scored highly on all criteria, especially quality of life, schooling, and housing affordability. And whilst its certainly the case that we can’t all move to this one village, the results of the survey do reveal a lot about the kind of factors that young families look for when moving to a new location. Accessibility to countryside and open spaces has been shown to be a key factor when relocating, and this explains why so many rural and semi-rural locations have performed so well in this survey.

Second on the list of locations is South Petherton in Cornwall (which is also from the South West region of England). This rural town scored particularly highly in terms of its historic heritage and architecture, as well as access to countryside and local amenities.

City locations fared quite poorly in the survey, with the highest ranking ‘city’ location being Sutton Coldfield, which now forms part of greater Birmingham in the UK’s Midlands. The survey seems to reflect the current trend for young families to move away from the bigger conurbations to rural and semi-rural locations in order to better raise their children.

San Diego Real Estate Website Gets New Design

MovingSD.com, a popular San Diego-area real estate website, has been completely redesigned. The site, which is owned by Chris Muckley of Ascent Real Estate, Inc, features consumer information for buyers and sellers in the San Diego area, including property listings and search features, industry news, local information and more.

“I first publised MovingSD.com in 2005, and it has been a great way for me to offer information to real estate consumers,” said Muckley. “But I really wanted to take the site in a more interactive direction.” The new MovingSD.com is a blog-based site which is intended to allow Muckley and his team to constantly add new posts, tips and information for the public. The site also has been integrated with RealBird property search widgets, that allow users to search for homes nationwide.

Chris Muckley’s team consists of San Diego realtors Kelly Shilling, Ryan Johnstone and Becky Bickmore. Shilling is a listing specialist and also works with buyers in San Diego and Chula Vista. Johnstone, known as “The Downtown Guy,” is a buyer and seller specialist who focuses on the Downtown condominium market, and frequently hosts walking tours of listed properties. Bickmore works with buyers and sellers in the metro area, and has collaborated with Muckley on many of his bank-owned listings. Muckley mostly works with institutional sellers and oversees the day-to-day operations of the team, as well as all the marketing.

The agents mentioned above are happy to have their San Diego real estate website redesigned, and look forward to networking with consumers through its pages.

Letting Web Business Leads the Way with iPad Technology

Lettingweb.com is the first UK property website to announce the development of an iPad application; to add to its property search offering.

Letting Web Business Leads the Way with iPad Technology

After the success of the iPhone and great buzz surrounding Apple’s newest creation – the iPad, Lettingweb has decided to embrace this new technology which is certain to take the UK by storm.

Apple delivered over 500,000 iPads during its first week in the US and has experienced an overwhelming demand for the newest must-have Multi-Touch screen tablet computer.

The Lettingweb iPad App will allow users to search for available UK rental properties in their chosen area with a few quick actions. The unique app will let property seekers to view the property’s particulars, Google map location and see an album of photos for the property before deciding to enquire directly with the agent. Users can also forward details to friends or add the property to a shortlist so there’s nothing for them to try to remember either. For the agent, the chances of receiving an enquiry are also greatly improved as it all happens instantly.

Lettingweb.com’s, Marketing Manager, Mr Richard Matthews, said:

“As a technology business we are focused on providing the most innovative and practical solutions for our letting agent customers. As many home hunters currently use our iPhone App to search for properties to rent we decided to invest in the technology to make searching for a property even easier and faster with the release of the iPad. This should translate to even higher enquiries for our member firms.”

“The Lettingweb iPad App is due for release on the App store very soon. So far from our usability testing days we’ve had excellent feedback from several groups of home hunters who have tested the application. This technology is sure to be the next big thing in the property industry.”

Lettingweb’s statistics for 2008 and 2009 based on over 7,000 properties every month, show supply of rented accommodation in the first half of both years outstripped demand making it a tenants market. 2010 has seen the reverse happen with demand outstripping supply and as a result rental prices have increased suggesting a landlord market for beginning of the year, which would go against the trend for the past two years.

About Lettingweb
Based in Edinburgh, Lettingweb.com was established in 1999 and is now the largest marketplace for private rented property in Scotland with circa 6,000 properties to rent posted live per month through the majority of Scottish Letting agents (circa 300 member firms). Lettingweb has one of the widest selection of flats to rent in Edinburghflats to rent in Aberdeenflats to rent in Glasgowflats to rent in Dundee and flats to rent in Inverness in Scotland. Lettingweb also represents nearly 450 agents in the UK as a whole.

Letting Web Business Leads the Way with iPhone Technology

Lettingweb.com has become the first letting only UK property website to introduce an iPhone application with a Global Positioning System (GPS) to identify the user’s current location in relation to available properties to rent in that area.

Users of the Letting Web iPhone App can also view a photo slideshow and the property’s particulars on their iPhone, call the agent with an enquiry, forward details to friends or e-mail immediately from their phone so there’s nothing for them to remember later. For the agent, the chances of receiving an enquiry are greatly improved as it all happens instantly.

Richard Matthews, Marketing Manager at Lettingweb.com, said:

“As a technology business we are focused on providing the most innovative and practical solutions for our letting agent customers. As many home hunters use iPhones, we decided to invest in the technology to make searching for a property easier and faster. This should also translate to higher enquiries for our member firms.

“We tested the application with a group of home hunters and almost 400 users downloaded it during testing. Since then the app has received some very favourable reviews on Apple’s iTunes website. This technology is now available to view all of the 5,500 Scottish properties to rent each month on www.lettingweb.com“.

Lettingweb’s statistics for 2008 and 2009 based on over 5,000 properties every month, show the supply of rented accommodation in the first half of both years outstripped demand making it a tenants market. The reverse happened in the second half of both years with demand being greater than the supply of rented properties. However, industry experts believe rental prices are going to increase in 2010 due to a drop off in supply suggesting a landlord market for the beginning of the year which would go against the trend of the past two years.

Mr Matthews added:

“If demand outstrips supply and the market gets competitive for the best properties, home hunters with our iPhone application will be able to access details of rented properties on location quicker which gives them an edge over others using more traditional methods.”

Lettingweb.com works with the majority of letting agents in Scotland to provide highly sought after flats to rent in Edinburgh and flats to rent in Glasgow, but it also has properties to rent in other UK cities including Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and has recently added Wales and Northern Ireland to its portfolio.

For Sale By Owner Meets Online Dating

Sellmestraight.com has just launched a revolutionary concept in for sale by owner home sales modeled off of popular online dating sites. But rather than matching people with their dream date, sellmestraight.com aims to match buyers with their dream home. Using sophisticated profile based matching, sellmestraight.com is as much an “emotion engine” as a search engine, including criteria such as buyer tastes and preferences into the home search process.

The primary deficiency with most online real estate sites, is that they focus too much on brick and mortar and pay little attention to the emotional aspects of buying a home, which are sometimes the greatest motivating factors when making a major purchase. Eric Little, the site’s founder said “the motivation behind creating sellmestraight.com came from first had experiences both as both a buyer and seller. As a buyer, I was frustrated that the intangible elements of my home search were largely overlooked. A house that looked great on paper often fell far short when viewing in person, especially when it came to personal preferences such as the type of neighborhood”.

In regard to selling a property, Little said “as a home seller attempting to sell by owner, I was discouraged that there was no good way to reach out proactively to interested buyers. I am proud to say the selling tools provided by sellmestraight.com offer home sellers the ability to proactively reach out to interested buyers, representing an unprecedented advantage for motivated home sellers”. – ecoogle

Combining an intuitive and interactive interface between buyer and seller, along with unparalleled advantage of the exclusive seller tools, sellmestraight.com may prove to be the future of for sale by owner home sales. Experience the revolution for yourself at www.sellmestraight.com.

Edinburgh-Based Ocean Serviced Apartments Responds To The Growing Number Of Business Clients By Providing Dedicated Corporate-Level Accommodation

Business travellers are switching to the value and comfort of serviced apartments to seal the deal. Edinburgh-based Ocean Serviced Apartments has responded to the growing number of business clients, looking for economy and luxury combined, by providing dedicated corporate-level accommodation.

Ocean Serviced Apartments

When the UK’s newest operator in the sector, Ocean Serviced Apartments, offered high-spec accommodation for corporate clients, they anticipated that many guests would also want to use their waterfront address to entertain too. “And why not?” asks Matthew Hansen one of Ocean’s Corporate Account managers. “If you’re working in Edinburgh for a limited time, be that a few days or a few months, there’s no needing go to the additional expense of a meeting place, when you can easily use one of our corporate-level apartments as a place to live, and as somewhere to hold an informal meeting”.

Certainly, Ocean Serviced Apartments offer an inspiring location. With views of the Edinburgh skyline and the waters of the Firth of Forth there are few locations that come close to this impressive new-build. “We’re on the edge of the city centre, rather than being out of town”, adds Matthew Hansen. “So we avoid all the usual problems, like parking and congestion, while still being close to all the city amenities”.

Ocean’s two-bedroomed Corporate Apartments all have complimentary wifi, and TV and radio so you can Wake Up To Money and doze off to the Financial World Tonight. They’re all furnished to a premium standard. With nightly rental available from £70, corporate guests have excellent flexibility and a great view of Edinburgh to impress clients.

Astute Investors Can Enlist Help Of Quality Tradespeople To Boost Returns

It has long been the case that investors have seen renovating and modernising a run-down property as a good opportunity to make money.

But in times like the present, when anyone who is still in the market for property can drive a hard bargain, such investments offer an even more appealing deal.

This is because, with good properties scarce, investors’ attention will increasingly focus on what is available lower down the market, where the potential long-term gains are greater.

Les Yates, of Bolton-based trade comparison site, LocalQuoter, believes that, with lots of tradespeople working at less than capacity due to the recession, there is also plenty of help and advice available for would-be investors.

“Competition is fierce among quality tradespeople, whose workload has slowed with the onset of the recession,” Les points out.

“So they have more time to advise on which improvements are needed to a run-down property, and which will bring potentially the highest return.”

Measures such as a new fitted kitchen, double glazing and a new bathroom always have the greatest appeal for buyers, and are one way to make money in a flat housing market, it has been claimed.

But with renewed emphasis on energy efficiency, any improvements which enhance a house’s energy-saving performance are also likely to bring good returns for investors.
