In Like a Lion: Spring Gets Roaring Start With High Values, Low Supply

Sun, 2017-03-26 12:08

The spring home-buying season is off to a roaring start, with home values up 7 percent and supply down 3 percent year-over-year, according to Zillow’s Real Estate Market Reports for February. Competition is expected to be fierce as homebuyers chase down few listings, says Zillow Chief Economist Dr. Svenja Gudell.

“Low inventory, strong demand and tough competition will be the defining characteristics of this year’s home shopping season,” Gudell says. “Even though interest rates are rising, buyers are eager to start their home search.”

High values and low supply are especially pronounced in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn., where values are up 7.1 percent year-over-year and supply is down 18 percent; Cincinnati, Ohio, where values are up 6.4 percent and supply is down 14.9 percent; and Detroit, Mich., where values are up 10 percent and supply is down 14.4 percent. The median home value in Minneapolis-St. Paul ($239,700) is above the national median, $195,700, while the median home values in Cincinnati ($150,500) and Detroit ($137,500) are below it.

The highest home value appreciation occurred in Tampa, Fla., Seattle, Wash., and Dallas-Fort Worth Texas, where values rose more than 11 percent year-over-year—above the national appreciation, 6.9 percent.

“If you’re a prospective buyer about to enter the market, keep in mind that it’s rare to get the first home you make an offer on, and homes in particularly hot markets frequently sell for over asking price,” says Gudell. “Buyers should give themselves enough time to get their finances in order and find a real estate agent they know and trust before jumping into the market.”

Now You Can Own Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s Santa Barbara Villa

Sun, 2017-03-26 12:05

Editor’s Note: This was originally published on RISMedia’s blog, Housecall. See what else is cookin’ now at blog.rismedia.com:

Do you want to live with Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi? Well you can’t, but you can live in their old villa. That is, if you have a spare $45 million roosting in the bank—the posh Santa Barbara pad just hit the market. Known simply as “The Villa,” the estate boasts a lap pool, sunken tennis courts, a super fancy indoor-outdoor entertaining pavilion for all of your fabulous future parties, and incredible views of the ocean, harbor, and mountains.

Originally built in the 1930s, the two-story, 10,500-square-foot spot was created by famed architect Wallace Frost who modeled the home after a traditional 17th century Italian villa. The six-bedroom, eight-bathroom space was featured in Ellen’s 2015 book “Home.”

The comedian/author/talk show host and her Australian actress wife bought the place in 2012, gobbling up the properties on either side to make the villa the expansive estate that it is today.

Listed for: $45 million
