Moving in a real estate market and during a banking collapse

By |2023-03-15T12:58:04-04:00March 15, 2023|Resources & Tips|

Moving during a real estate market low and during a recent bank collapse can be a difficult decision to make during these times. As we all know of the SVB bank collpase as of Friday March 10, 2023 and then Signature bank of New York.  The banking industry is in trouble but it is not the big banks but the small regional banks that bring more concern then the big ones like Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan and Chase etc. These banks maintain solvency in these times. Banks collapse is most likely due to bad investing as a bank really invests in risky investments in which lately a lot have lost value by over 50%. The banking industry is built on trust by its depositors and investors. A bank is nothing but a place to park your deposits in which the bank keeps only 10% of the deposits and invests into risky ventures like crypto in which some have collapsed as well like recent FTX and a few others have closed. The FDIC is not goverment owned but is a privately owned corporation. the picture doesn’t look that good but at this point it would be best for the consumer to be purchasing Gold and Silver coins and items that are more tanigble at this present time even thou you may lose a little value with tanigble items you will not lose your shirt totally.

Housing market is still low with low inventory and nothing really out there but there are some still hot spots where the market is still booming and with that said  the spring flowers are starting to emerge and I wanted to share with you some things what we are seeing even thou homeowners are still holding off moving.

Already 3 months or so into the new year and we  are seeing Buyers are active in buying homes and most are for investnent purposes and some second time buyers

Buyers are active.  We see homes selling faster in January then in July last year.

Homes are holding their values.  The average value of a home is up almost by 2% over last year.

– Mortgage rates are volatile! Rates have whipsawed from 7.3% in November to below 6% in January, to now mid-6%’s heading in to March. With such volatility, it’s best to get your mortgage application in place in advance, so that you can lock in your rate when they hit a point of interest.

These trends are all validating that the market is shifting in to a more balanced and healthy place.

Summary.  Now would be the time to sell your present property or rent it out for that extra monthly income because it is something tangible and even thou the value might dip you will not lose your shirt like you will with money by having it in a bank. The property is an income property and whether you are selling or just moving your home furnishings and looking for a dependable and trustworthy mover whom knows how to give you the absolute best moving services let Eastern Connection Movers do your move.

The most Four valuable tips for your out of state move

By |2023-01-05T22:28:12-05:00January 5, 2023|Resources & Tips|

These are the Four most valuable tips that are suggessted during any out of state move. During many people’s lifetime an out of state move can difficult especially for the first time move. These are the Four best steps to follow to help you in your long distance move.

Tip one:  

When moving out of state selerct a moving company that is not a franchise but is a small business company.

Why ?.  If you select a franchise company chances are you will have to wait at least 21 days for a move to the southern states like Florida and the Carolinas.  If you are moving to the west coast or southwest states figure about 30 days before you get the delivery. With a small company chances are you will get direct ” exclusive delivery” without the long wait because you have better things to do other then waiting like getting your things there so that you can start your new job on time without having to already started the new job then have your things arrive in which can complicate things. This senario also happens when you book with a large company as they will not run ” Exclusive moves” without overcharging you. The small company however has more wiggle room where they can give you that ” exclusive direct delivery in a few days and thus, meeting your moving requirements.

Tip two:

Deal with a small company as they are not looking to meet a monthly moving booked quota as what they are looking to do for you is to give you a quality move that is seamless without any glinches.

Why ?

Avoid to many ” cooks in the kitchen” as this is a process where with a franchise your belongings are loaded by the first franchised office ” First cook” then off loaded into their warehouse to wait for the second ” cook ” to load it onto their truck then it goes to another franchise unloaded then reloaded to be delivered out to your new residence and by this four franchise agents have handled your belongs. This process can cause a lot of damages to your belongings and it has been proven to be a fact.

Book your long distance move with a small moving company will assure you of  no double handling of your move, direct delivery without the risks of damages from to many cooks in the kitchen.

Tip three:

Avoid dealing with a franchise moving company because most franchise offices have an age limit on movers to move your precious belongings.

Why ?.

The age limit for a franchised company to hire a mover is 33 years old for the labor end. This policy can certainly put your home furnishings at risk of severe damages because of their constant turn over and hiring of new help that chances are not experienced movers.  Your best bet is to book your move with a small non franchised moving company because they will have movers that have been with them for decades and these men most likely will be older but will have the expertise that you are looking for on your move to ensure your move is a seamless one with a great moving experience.

Tip Four:

When selecting your moving company always make sure that you get all of the services for your long distance move in writing before the service will begin and remember that a company that does out of state moves can’t take any deposits for the move until after your belongshas been loaded onto the truck and the pick up end  and packing end of the service has been completed.

Why ?.

Out of state moving companies are required to list all of the services that are to be provided in writing before the services begins as required by regulations.
