Will Rebounding Oil Prices Bring Back Luxury Buyers?

Posted by on 10-10-15 in Lake LBJ Real Estate | Comments Off on Will Rebounding Oil Prices Bring Back Luxury Buyers?

oil prices rise

If you are paying attention to the news, stock market or oil industry you are likely aware of this weeks rebound in oil prices. Many analysts believe oil prices have hit bottom and that prices are starting to recover. For Lake LBJ Real Estate, this could mean more luxury transactions above $1million.

The last few months have really slowed down as oil prices hit all time lows and have remained at that level for longer than people expected. Many high net worth buyers have sat on the fence and luxury sales have been slow to say the least. Will the rise in oil prices and overall sentiment that prices will only go up from here be enough to get those buyers back into the market place? Time will tell but for now it is my opinion that there are many deals to be had and if oil rebounds quickly that opportunity wont stick around for very long.

Lots of bad inventory huh?

There seems to be a lot of bad inventory on Lake LBJ these days huh? What I mean by that is either bad water or overpriced properties. Most of the inventory you are seeing right now has been overpriced and just sits in the MLS collecting days on days on market. The good real estate on Lake LBJ is held on to by families that appreciate, understand and value the real estate as an investment and the few great properties that do come up for sale, and get priced correctly, get snatched up very quickly; often times never hitting MLS. The rest of the stuff is either way overpriced or an overall bad investment because of the waterfront quality.

Currently the price of oil is way down and this has definitely impacted real estate values in the short term on Lake LBJ. Property owners that are in the oil industry or even service areas in which revolve around the oil industry often times divest excess real estate during these tough times to assist their cash flow. The recent turbulence in the stock market has also created some unrest for property owners in other industries as well. We are already seeing some new properties hit the market but its a shame to see them getting over listed. Right now I believe there is great opportunity to buy Lake LBJ Real Estate and the only way to buy right is to start making offers.

As oil prices bottom out and begin their upward trajectory (as they always do), the money in Texas will again flow freely and the value of Lake LBJ real estate will soar. In fact, based on simple math, the demand for Lake LBJ real estate just exploded through the recent population boom in Texas while the supply of real estate stayed exactly the same. In a few years, Lake LBJ Real Estate will be unattainable in my opinion.

The Right Time to Buy?

Posted by on 8-08-15 in Lake LBJ Real Estate, Market Update | Comments Off on The Right Time to Buy?

As the summer comes to an end on Lake LBJ, could it be the right time to pursue Lake LBJ Real Estate? I believer opportunity is knocking. Many sellers see the “window to sell” as being in the summer months and once school starts back up, there are less waterfront buyers perusing the market. Sellers that need to sell are getting worried because they feel like the window is closing fast. Historically low oil prices aren’t helping the cause. Many people believed the prices would have rebounded by now but the reality is that they have not. Because Lake LBJ Real Estate is largely a second-home, luxury market there are many sellers that want to get rid of their excess properties to help weather the storm. I have recently seen as much as 25% price reductions on luxury homes which is a good sign for waterfront buyers. Sellers are anxious and motivated to make things happen so why not make a move and see what kind of deals make sense? In fact, earlier in the year I had a client purchase a property listed at $839,000 for $700,000. Would you be interested in a waterfront deal like that?

There are some great properties available but many of them are overpriced. Now is the perfect opportunity to come in and make offers; to try and buy some of these waterfront properties at or below market value. You will never know the price you can buy a property at, until you make an offer. With the huge population growth that Texas has experienced in the last few years, the longterm demand for Lake LBJ real estate is very high.. In fact, I believe Lake LBJ Real Estate will be unattainable in the near future. Take advantage of this short-term lull in the marketplace and claim your piece of Lake LBJ Real Estate
