RE/MAX has been the top real estate franchise in the annual survey, produced by Entrepreneur magazine, for seven consecutive years.

More than 1,000 franchisors applied to be included in this year’s Franchise 500. RE/MAX was selected as the top estate franchisor because of its unit growth, financial strength, stability and brand power in 2018. This year’s Franchise 500 marks the 16th time in 20 years that RE/MAX is number one in the real estate category. RE/MAX ranked 15th overall among all franchisors on the list.

The Franchise 500 is considered the oldest and most comprehensive franchise ranking in the world. Companies are judged by the same criteria including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength and financial strength and stability. To be eligible, franchisors must be seeking new franchises in the United States or Canada and have a minimum of 10 units open and operating as of July 31, 2018, with at least one franchise located in North America.

RE/MAX Professionals Celebrates August as the Month of Miracles

by Nate Martinez

RE/MAX Professionals Celebrates August as the Month of Miracles 

Giving back is a priority in the RE/MAX culture. All over the world, RE/MAX agents make a difference in their communities - volunteering, donating money, contributing time and ultimately changing lives.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) raises funds and awareness for 170-member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.

We are excited to announce that our offices will be participating in our fourth annual “Month of Miracles” throughout the month of August. This is a month-long fundraising event is designed to raise much-need money to support our local Phoenix Children’s Hospital as well as raise awareness in our community.

“Children’s hospitals depend on local donations — like those from RE/MAX agents participating in Miracle Home and Miracle Property programs — to provide the top-of-class care kids deserve,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “On behalf of the millions of families impacted by RE/MAX donations, we appreciate each agent’s efforts and thank them for truly making miracles happen in their communities all year long.”

Last year our Month of Miracles event raised over $15,000 and our office made a total contribution to Phoenix Children’s Hospital of $44,160.20! We were recognized by RE/MAX LLC for being the highest contributing office in the Southwest Region (Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico) to the Children’s Miracle Network, and our local Phoenix Children's Hospital!

Each donation helps fund pediatric medical equipment, treatments, charitable care and other healthcare services for local CMN hospitals. As the contributions continue to grow, we are able to aid a larger number of sick and injured children – which is something we take great pride in being able to do for our community.

Please help us reach out goal of ONE MILLION PENNIES for the “Month of Miracles” in August, 2018. You can drop by any one of our four offices to participate in our fundraising efforts, or contact the Nate Martinez Team and we will be happy to pick up your donation.

On behalf of all the kids at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, we thank you in advance for your support in helping us achieve this goal for our community!

Sincerely,

Nate Martinez, RE/MAX Professionals

Softer Home Sales Start the New Year

by Nate Martinez

Softer Home Sales Start the New Year

Like last year, 2015 home sales are starting the year at a slower pace. January home sales were 3.9 percent lower than sales in January 2014. Last year, sales improved dramatically during the spring and summer months and three of the last four months of 2014 recorded higher sales than one year earlier. 

“One month certainly doesn’t make a trend. As we saw last year, home sales started rather slow, but rebounded during the prime selling months. In fact, 2014 ended with a respectable 4.9 million sales of existing homes, which we believe represents a sustainable rate of growth. So, we still need a few more months of data to tell how this market will perform in 2015.” Dave Liniger, RE/MAX, LLC CEO, Chairman and Co-Founder

With a constrained inventory, the January Median Price rose by 11.2 percent over last January. And the inventory of homes for sale was 10.9% lower than one year ago. At the current rate of sales, the corresponding Months’ Supply of inventory fell slightly to 5.2 on a scale where 6.0 indicates a market balanced equally between buyers and sellers.

Year End Home Sales Bounce Back: National Housing Report from RE/MAX

by Nate Martinez

Year End Home Sales Bounce Back: National Housing Report from RE/MAX

Defying the normal trend, home sales in December rose above the number of November sales by a significant 14.4 percent. Sales were also 3.9 percent above those of last December. Although home sales have generally been lower in 2014 than 2013, three of the last four months have experienced sales higher than the same month last year. Home prices in December were also higher than one year ago, rising 5.9 percent. Inventory continues to be constrained, with 10.7 percent fewer homes for sale than last December. As a result, the Month’s Supply of inventory rose to 5.7 on a scale where 6.0 indicates a market balanced equally between buyers and sellers.

"After a sluggish start, it's nice to see the year end on a positive note. Even though we're well into the winter months, homebuyers felt confident enough to enter the market in greater numbers than just one month ago. And with prices rising at a much slower rate than last year, sellers continue to increase their equity, while buyers don't feel priced out of the market." Dave Liniger, RE/MAX, LLC CEO, Chairman and Co-Founder

by Nate Martinez

RE/MAX National Housing Report November 2014 

According to the November 2014, National Housing Report from RE/MAX, October marks the second consecutive month in 2014 with home sales higher than one year ago. Following the normal fall seasonal trend, October home sales were 0.8% lower than sales in September, but 2.6 percent higher than the level of sales in October 2013.

“Home sales in 2014 started the year slowly and then rose to equal the strong sales in 2013. They’ve now surpassed last year’s levels for two months in a row. Following usual seasonal trends and with prices rising at a reasonable rate, the market appears to be settling into a more sustainable growth pattern.” Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX, LLC CEO

The Median Sales Price of all homes sold in the 53 metropolitan areas surveyed in October was $193,000, which was 7.4 percent higher than the median price last October. Home prices in October followed the 2014 pattern of steady growth, but at a slower rate than the double-digit increases seen in 2013.

RE/MAX National Housing Report for October

by Nate Martinez

RE/MAX National Housing Report for October

According to RE/MAX’s National Housing Report for October, home sales reached a higher level than this time one year ago. Following an expected seasonal trend, September home sales were 10.4 percent lower than sales in August. However, sales pushed past the mark set in September 2013 by 0.9 percent.

“It’s significant that September was the first month this year to see higher sales than last year. This demonstrates that there are interested buyers and the market is strong enough to rival last year’s brisk sales. While the change of seasons usually sees reduced sales, it’s good to see that home prices continue to rise at a more sustainable rate.” Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX, LLC CEO.

Sales throughout 2014 remained just below those in 2013, but finally in September sales inched above those one year ago. The Median Sales Price of all homes sold in the 52 metropolitan areas surveyed in September was $195,000, which was 5.4 percent higher than the median price last September.

RE/MAX National Housing Report for September

by Nate Martinez

The National Housing Report from RE/MAX for September tells us that while inventory is on the rise, the recovery continues and there is more and more stability in the housing economy.

While 2014 sales have not been on the rise as rapidly as the sales in 2013, this remains well above the sales of the same period in 2013.

“After a slow start to the year, 2014 home sales have been improving. Sales are following the expected seasonal pattern and are approaching the levels we saw last year. As inventory continues to build the recovery continues at a more stable and sustainable rate.” Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX CEO.

Of the last few months, we have seen a month-over-month increase in inventory. Based on the rate of home sales in July, and the increase of homes for sale, there was an increase of 4.3 month’s of inventory – where a supply of 6 month’s indicates a market balanced equally between buyers and sellers.

Updated National Housing Report from RE/MAX

by Nate Martinez

Updated National Housing Report from RE/MAX

January home sales feel lower, while prices continued to trend up - the change in sales can be attributed to the severe winter storms. The RE/MAX National Housing Report, found that the January median home price of $173,475 was 11.6 percent higher than the prices in January 2013. Click here to read the updated National Housing Report from RE/MAX.

“We usually expect to see fewer home sales in the winter months, but January experienced particularly severe storms in a large part of the country, which disrupted appraisals, inspections and closings. However, the real story for home sales in 2014 will begin to unfold in the coming spring and summer months.” Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX CEO.

Despite the extreme weather conditions, thirteen metro areas experienced sales higher than this time last year. As for us in Arizona, the weather has been the usual sunny but much warmer than the typical spring temperatures. While we are enjoying the sunshine, home prices continue to level out in our metro area. If you are interested in learning more about your property values today, please give me a call.

RE/MAX National Housing Report for December 2013

by Nate Martinez

RE/MAX National Housing Report for December 2014

The RE/MAX National Housing Report, a survey of MLS data in 52 metropolitan areas, found the December median home price of $185,400 was 11.9 percent higher than the median in December 2012. After double-digit growth in home sales during the summer, sales cooled off, but December still saw a 0.7 percent year-over-year increase.

Slower sales growth is associated with a limited inventory of homes for sale coupled with increased lending requirements and mortgage fees. At the rate of home sales in December, the Months Supply of inventory rose to 5.9 months, nearly equal to the 6.0 supply that defines a market balanced equally between buyers and sellers.

The December RE/MAX National Housing Report found a 4.5 percent monthly increase in home sales, and a 0.7 percent increase in sales from December last year. On a year-over-year basis, home sales have increased in 29 of the last 30 months.

“It’s great that improving market fundamentals continued through the normally slower winter months, and we ended the year on a strong positive note.” Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX CEO. Click here to read the full National Housing Report for December 2013.

If you or anyone you know is considering a home purchase or sale, give me a call today. With property values and inventory stabilizing, it is a good time to considering a real estate move. Nate
