Higher Interest Rates are Making it Difficult for Homeowners to Sell in Newport News

July 12, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ -

Dependable Homebuyers predicts an increasingly difficult time for homeowners who are trying to sell their residential properties in Newport News. The real estate market has already become more favorable for buyers with the increase in the interest rate late last year. The Federal Reserve has said that at least two more rounds of review are due this year. If the rates of interest are raised again, not just once but twice, then the market is clearly not conducive for sellers.

The We Buy Houses company cites the decline in the number of available buyers in the market today. This has already become a problem. More properties are listed for sale in the city than there are buyers. Many sellers are reducing their ask prices to appeal to more buyers. The buyers too are fully aware of the higher interest rates and the fact that the market factors are in their favor. This is leading buyers to harder negotiations. Most buyers want a dramatically reduced ask price so they can comfortable accommodate the increased interest levied on their mortgage. This may suit some sellers but most homeowners in Newport News want to secure the maximum return on their investment. This cannot happen in a buyers market, especially when the rates of interest are already high and may be raised again.

Dependable Homebuyers states that the market is in favor of cash investors for this very reason. The company owned by Evan Roberts is a cash investor. Similar companies who can make cash offers to sellers will find it easy to close the deals. Cash investors do not depend on banks so there is no appraisal. In an environment when the interest rates are high, the appraisal becomes a bone of contention and it does not always work out well for the sellers. Buyers also struggle because they have to keep the net liability in check, which includes the principal loan amount to be repaid every month and the accruing interest. Cash investors can also avoid real estate agents and offer direct deals to sellers. This does away with steep commissions and other expenses.

Homeowners who cannot sell in the open market and are unwilling to reduce ask prices to make their propositions more enticing for buyers can contact Dependable Homebuyers. The company inspects properties immediately and presents purchase offers. The service is free and the offer is nonobligatory. Sellers can choose to accept the deal or turn it down. The We Buy Houses company has the ability to close a sale in seven days if the owner agrees to proceed immediately. Dependable Homebuyers pays for the closing cost. They do not charge any fee or commission. Homeowners in Newport News can secure the maximum value for their property. Since it is a cash transaction, the higher rates of interest or the discretion of buyers and their banks do not have any relevance at all. More such cash investors are expected to take advantage of the higher interest rate environment, thus offering respite to sellers who are struggling to secure an acceptable closing offer.

Protests squeezing Hong Kong economy, tourism, leader says

Nov 22, 2019

HONG KONG — Hong Kong's economy is languishing after months of increasingly violent protests, the city's embattled leader Carrie Lam said Tuesday. Lam, addressing reporters after a long weekend of more turmoil, said tourism arrivals were down by half and that hotels and retailers were suffering. Hong Kong's third quarter economic data will definitely be "very bad", said Lam, the semi-autonomous territory's Beijing-backed chief executive said. Lam said she did not have the data with her. But empty streets and tourist attractions are evidence of the fallout from the protests that began in June over a now-shelved extradition bill that...

US priest who gave out gifts in Philippines accused of abuse

Nov 22, 2019

TALUSTUSAN, Philippines — The American priest's voice echoed over the phone line, his sharp Midwestern accent softened over the decades by a gentle Filipino lilt. On the other end, recording the call, was a young man battered by shame but anxious to get the priest to describe exactly what had happened in this little island village. "I should have known better than trying to just have a life," the priest said in the November 2018 call. "Happy days are gone. It's all over." But, the young man later told the Associated Press, those days were happy only for the priest....

HONG KONG — Hong Kong protesters threw bricks and gasoline bombs at police, who responded with tear gas, as chaotic scenes returned to the summer-long anti-government protests on Saturday for the first time in nearly two weeks. Hundreds of black-clad protesters armed with bamboo poles and baseball bats fought with police officers wielding batons on a main road following a march against "smart lampposts" that was sparked by surveillance fears. The chaotic scenes unfolded outside a police station and a nearby shopping mall as officers in riot gear faced off with protesters who set up makeshift street barricades. The violence...
