More Good News For Real Estate

There was more good news on the home buying front last month. The National Association of Realtors, or NAR for short, reported that pending home sales were up from February by 3.2 percent. Pending home sales is a forward looking indicator that counts the number of contracts signed. The Analysts were predicting no increase, but for the market to remain flat.

Not only were the numbers up from February, 2009, there was also a 1.1 percent increase over March of last year, right around the time the economy began it’s decline.

Pending home sales are not yet actual sales, just signed contracts awaiting loan approval. They are still considered a very good gauge to the overall health of the housing market. The positive numbers could be thought of as an anomaly in an otherwise severely depressed economy. The next report will give more of an idea if the housing market is gaining momentum. Two months of positive growth will be good news for the overall health of the U.S. Economy. Three months of positive numbers will not bear well for those sitting on the sidelines waiting for property values to contract yet further. That will show that the population is out buying in force, and when that happens the best deals will be snatched up quickly.

Once the real estate market gets some momentum behind it, there is a good chance that home prices and interest rates will rise quickly. The theory behind such a prediction is simple supply and demand. Right now there is a glut of housing on the market,. Builders are holding to much inventory for to long, and what they have been able to sell has been at deep discounts, often below costs. People wanting or needing to sell homes are sometimes forced to take much less than the homes value as recently as last year. Then there are the foreclosures the banks are trying to get rid of. All of this makes for an over burdened market ready to explode.

Prices and interest rates are at almost historic lows. When the housing bubble and the failing economy met, it left many people hurting while opening up a once in a lifetime opportunity for buying or investing in residential real estate properties. Brokers and agents around the country are reporting an increase in activity and sales. The people are coming out and looking again.

Going into and at the height of the real estate bubble buying rundown properties and fixing them up to re-sell at a profit was popular. Many people missed the opportunity, but it is back again. There are decent properties out there that can be picked up at substantially lower prices than what they are worth. There has been evidence of this already. It’s an easy way for aspiring entrepreneur to make substantial profits with little investment.

The biggest incentives in history are being offered by the Government. An up to $ 8000 tax credit is available for qualifying first time home buyers. This program alone is expected to bring 30000 new home buyers to the market. That could very well be the beginning of the end for bargain hunters.

The time to buy if one is intending is now. Many analysts and economists both are optimistic about the economic recovery happening soon, if not already in it’s early stages. Those that wait to long for better deals may get left behind as we leave the contraction behind and start working on a new and prosperous future.

So, if you want to get the attention of the general public, you need to be fast. And, if you want people to remember the information you are promoting, you need it to be memorable.

A website describing a product is a good way to advertise and explain your next latest and greatest idea; however online video marketing will a put a picture in someone’s mind. People will stay on a web page for a brief period of time but they will allow a video to keep playing even if they have moved on to something else. An impression is made in seconds and that impression will be clearer if someone has an image to keep in mind.

If you are selling a pen, a majority of the world will know what to do with it. However if you are pitching a business idea, you may need several minutes to get the main idea out in the open. A video will make an explanation easier to follow.

It takes a lot of money to make a commercial for television. You have to hope and pray your commercial does not end up running in the wee hours of the morning in between the commercial for penis extension and the next greatest diet control pill. Online video marketing gives you all the control you need.

You Tube has become a great platform for online advertisements. You can produce a video of good quality with a wealth of information for less than a thousand dollars. If you do not have a lot of money, try not to compromise on the quality of your video.

Spending the extra money to buy a good quality camera that allows you to record your video in high definition will be worth every extra dollar. If you do not take the time and money to invest in a presentation that you believe in, why should people want to invest in your idea?

Try to get your video out on as many web pages as you can. You Tube is only one stop for your video. Offer to allow someone else to advertise on your web page in return for giving you space on their website. Research other ways to get your online marketing video out to the masses.
