52 Orient Ave Arlington

Market Analysis for:

Teryl Smith

I've done a market analysis on your home at 52 Orient Ave in Arlington and have prepared this document to help explain how I've arrived at a price for your home. I perform a market analysis and calculate a price taking into consideration a home’s location, size, configuration, number of bedrooms and baths, lot size and general condition. I also take into account your reported condition and how, in my experience, that will impact the price of a home making it more or less valuable.  This market analysis will estimate a value without cosmetic improvements, and with cosmetic improvements.

Description of home

Please note that these comments do not relate to marketing, but are included purely to ensure that we have captured the information and reflect the major components of your home.

Your home is in a popular area of the Mt Gilboa neighborhood in Arlington. It has great curb appeal with matching stairs on either side of the front entry into the front porch. The enclosed front porch is full of natural light with a french entry door, half height windows on three sides. As you enter the front door you have the living room off to the left (currently used as a dining room), the kitchen straight ahead, stairs to the second floor on the right. Hardwood floors span the entire first floor apart from the kitchen. A cased opening separates the living room and the dining room. The dining room has a gas pot belly stove, a built in china cabinet, double glass doors out to the deck and backyard.  The kitchen has vinyl tile floors, white cabinetry, wainscoting and older appliances.

Up the stairs to the second floor we have a renovated bathroom with tumbled marble wall tiles, pebble floor tiles, and white fixtures. There are 3 bedrooms on this level - one is quite small with a set of stairs accessing the small head height attic space. The largest bedroom has 3 closets. There is a small office area off the landing.

Downstairs in the basement it is unfinished, the laundry, and a small half bathroom. Access to the side yard is via a side entry door on the stairs landing. There is a small outside storage area underneath the front porch that is accessed from outside.

Your home is 1164 sq ft according to public record, and has 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms (although the half bathroom in the basement has to have less 'value' than a half bath on the finished floors), no off street parking, built in 1920 and is on 0.14 acres of land.  

This note has been made after learning that you had a lead paint test prior to you moving into your home. The largest buyer pool of your home is young families - young families will steer clear of your home knowing that the home has lead in it as the legal requirement is that a family with children under the age of 6 are REQUIRED to mitigate lead paint if they know lead paint exists. Quotes for mitigating will need to be obtained to give a good understanding of the overall cost as it may be prohibitive at this point.

Market Dynamics

We have been experiencing shortages of housing inventory in Arlington over the last 5 years or so. There are always a number of buyers looking to buy in Arlington because of the strong school system, the community dynamics and vibrant downtown. People like the feeling of the downtown area, and want to stop and have a coffee, or have dinner at the many restaurants, or just watch the world go by, chatting with folks who are out and about. The Minuteman bike path and conservation areas close by pull those who desire an outdoor lifestyle while still remaining within commuting distance to Boston.

The Arlington market has seen increasing prices over the last few years given the limited inventory. The demand for homes in Arlington far outweighs the supply and each month a snapshot of available homes for sale shows the declining inventory levels.

Average prices in Arlington are well above average prices obtained in the peak of the market in 2010. Average home prices have been increasing steadily since 2011. The real estate market downturn that existed for the last few years is well and truly over and prices are continuing to increase each year.

Sales distribution statistics for homes show that the $600K price-range is the most active in Arlington. The next busiest price range in Arlington is the $700K price range. 

Before reviewing the price per sq foot charts it is important to throw in a caveat of using the average as the definitive guide. There is wide variability among agents as to what is included in the living area reported in MLS. In some instances, agents will include a finished component of the basement in the living area and this is acceptable so long as how the living area is calculated is disclosed. Others report the living area reported in public record, which never includes finished areas in the basement, but note in MLS that there is a finished basement. To this end, it is important to review each individual listing to determine the ‘true’ price per sq. ft. of above ground living area, but we also need to factor into this when a home has a finished basement.

Reviewing the price per sq. foot charts for condos shows us that the average price per sq. ft. in Arlington around the $500K price range is around $406 per sq. ft. It’s important to note that the maximum price per sq. ft. achieved varies across most price ranges, along with the minimum obtained for each price range.

When the year built in the 1920’s the average price per sq. ft. is $445. 

The chart below shows that single family homes in Arlington of similar size to your home in the 1,000 square foot range, have an average price per square foot of $433 but it increases to $593 per sq. ft. when you decrease to the under 1,000 square foot range. It is common across municipalities to see an increase in the price per square foot for smaller sized homes, as it reflects the minimum cost of a home in a town irrespective of the property size.

The chart below shows how many months’ supply of inventory there is in a given price range. It uses the assumption that given the same rate of sales over the prior 12 months, and considering current inventory available for sale, how many months it should take to sell the available inventory. This is referred to “Absorption” in the real estate world. 

Any price range where there is more than 7 months’ supply, we consider there to be an oversupply of inventory, also known as a ‘buyer’s market’. Anything between 4 – 6 months is considered a balanced market. Anything less than 3 months’ supply is considered a shortage of inventory on the market at this price range, also known as a ‘sellers’ market’. As can be seen, currently, absorption rates for all homes is almost nothing indicating a severe shortage in every price range.

Analysis of Relevant Properties

The following map shows the  homes that we believe to be of value in determining the price of your  home. Below the map you will find basic information  provided for each home including the price the home was  listed at, and the price the home sold at (if sold), the listing date, Days on market, Bedrooms, Bathrooms, living area size and lot size.  Noted for each home is a classification of Relevance which outlines whether we think the  property is valued Less (L), Relevant/Comparable (R) or Higher (H) than  your home. The notes for each home outlines the similarities and differences between  your home and the one being analyzed.

Your details: Living area 1164 sq ft | 3 beds | 1.5 baths (although half bath in unfinished basement) | Built 1920 | no off street parking | 0.14 acres

This home was built in 1922, yours in 1920.  It is of similar size but slightly smaller than your home at 1,104 sq  ft of all above ground living area. Your home has 1,164 sq ft of living area according to public records. This home has the same number of bedrooms as with your home, having 3 bedrooms. It has 1 bathroom, whereas your home has  1.5 bathrooms (although the half bathroom in the basement has to have less 'value' than a half bath on the finished floors).  It sits on a smaller 0.06 acre lot, whereas your home sits on a 0.14 acre lot.

The main level includes the living room, dining area, and the kitchen. The dining room has picture window/s. The country kitchen has a pantry. The 3 bedrooms are on the upper level and 2 of them have skylights. The family bathroom is also on the upper level. This home has mostly hardwood floors. Your home has far more curb appeal than this home and is likely in better condition, but this is what happens to an 'as-is' sale - they end up selling for less than what they could have if they were just smartened up a little. 

The home has 2 car off street parking, window AC, hot water baseboard heat, and was sold in "as is" condition. It was initially listed for $439,000 but price dropped to $418,000 before it went under agreement and was sold for $325,000.

Relevance:
1) your home currently: Relevant but less. Given the slightly smaller size, smaller lot size but off street parking, it is relevant but I think your home will sell for more because of its curb appeal.
2) your home with minor work, and paint/deleading: Less. Your home will sell for more.

Your details: Living area 1164 sq ft | 3 beds | 1.5 baths (although half  bath in unfinished basement) | Built 1920 | no off street parking |  0.14 acres

This colonial style home was built in 1928.  It is of similar size but slightly larger than your home at 1,176 sq  ft of all above ground living area. Your home has 1,164 sq ft of living area according to public records. This home has the same number of bedrooms as with your home, having 3 bedrooms. It has 1 bathroom, whereas your home has 1.5 bathrooms (although the half bathroom in the basement has to have less 'value' than a half bath on the finished floors).  It sits on a similar size lot of 0.12 acre, whereas your home sits on a 0.14 acre lot. The living room, the dining area, and the kitchen are on the main level. The bedrooms are all on the upper level.

This home is located in the Arlington Heights neighborhood on a busy street. It has an attached single car garage and 3 car off street parking, steam heat, and was sold in "as is" condition. It was listed for $439,900 but was sold for a lower price of $432,500. 

Relevance:
1) your home currently: Relevant. Given the similar size, similar configuration, similar lot size, inferior location but this one having an attached garage and 3 off street parking spots I believe this home would be relevant to yours.
2) your home with minor work, and paint/deleading: Less. If your home had a total paint job inside and the minor safety issues addressed your home will sell for more than this home.

Your details: Living area 1164 sq ft | 3 beds | 1.5 baths (although half  bath in unfinished basement) | Built 1920 | no off street parking |  0.14 acres

This colonial style home was built in 1928.  It is larger than your home at 1,383 sq  ft of all above ground living area. Your home has 1,164 sq ft of living area according to public records. This home has the same number of bedrooms as with your home, having 3 bedrooms. It has 1 bathroom, whereas your home has 1.5 bathrooms (although the half bathroom in the basement has to have less 'value' than a half bath on the finished floors).  It sits on a similar size lot of 0.13 acre on a busy street, whereas your home sits on a 0.14 acre lot.

The main level includes the living room, the dining room, the kitchen, and the sunroom. The living room has a fireplace with brick facing, triple windows, crown molding, and hardwood floors. It has access to the dining room and the sunroom  through a cased openings. The sunroom is 2/3rds of the width of the front of the home and is fully enclosed and heated and is located where your front porch is. The other 1/3 of the front is the entry vestibule. The dining room has  chair rails, triple windows, crown molding, and hardwood floors. The kitchen is dated with older white cabinets, chair rails, vinyl flooring, older appliances and exterior access to the backyard through the mudroom. The sunroom also has hardwood floors. The upper level has hardwood floors and  includes the 3 bedrooms, and the full bathroom. The full bathroom is dated. The home has had some interior painting done and the main floor looked quite 'fresh'.  The home is almost an identical layout to your home except it has a garage underneath. This home is located in the Peirce School district. It has an attached single car garage and 2 car off street parking, steam heat. It was initially listed for $550,000 but price dropped to $539,000 and to $525,000 before it went under agreement. It went back on the market before it was finally sold for an even lower price of $485,000.

Relevance:
1) your home currently: Higher. Given the larger size of the home, 'freshness' of the main level with paint, garage and off street parking I believe this home will sell for more than your home.
2) your home with minor work, and paint/deleading: Relevant but less. Given your superior bathroom condition, superior location, versus your lack of a garage I believe this is relevant to your home but yours will sell for more.

Your details: Living area 1164 sq ft | 3 beds | 1.5 baths (although half  bath in unfinished basement) | Built 1920 | no off street parking |  0.14 acres

This home has a private fenced in in-ground swimming pool which takes up most of the yard. Most of the home had wallpaper and all the bedrooms were wall to wall carpet, and the whole home was quite dated inside. The home was deleaded. This home is located in the Arlington Heights neighborhood on a semi-busy street. It has an attached single car garage and 3 car off street parking, steam/hot water radiators  heat, and was sold in "as is" condition. It was initially listed for $510,000 and went under agreement 4 times before 'sticking' with their final buyer and finally sold for $500,000 after 74 days on the market.

Relevance:
1) your home currently: Higher. Given the larger size of the home, 1 car garage with 3 off street parking spots, deleaded, and similar condition I believe your home won't sell for as much as this home.
2) your home with minor work, and paint/deleading: Relevant but less. Given the larger size of this home, inferior condition,1 car garage and 3 parking spots, superior condition of your home I believe this home is relevant to your home but yours should sell for more with the work done.

The living room has a fireplace with brick facing, custom built ins, and hardwood floors. The dining room has wainscoting, crown molding, wallpaper, hardwood floors, and access through a french door. The kitchen has older wood cabinets, bead board, brick backsplash, and older appliances. The bedrooms including the master bedroom and the family bathroom are on the upper level. These bedrooms have hardwood floors.  Most rooms in the home have wallpaper and its quite dated. This home has single car off street parking, steam central  heat, window AC, and was sold in "as is" condition. It was listed for $495,000 and sold for $520,000.

Relevance:
1) your home currently: Higher. The home was in decent condition, but just needed paint and given that it has off street parking, I believe it would sell for higher than your home.
2) your home with minor work, and paint/deleading: Relevant, but less. Given the similar size, similar lot size, equal curb appeal, but yours being fresher I believe it is relevant to your home but your home will sell for more.

It was initially listed for $599,900 but prices dropped to $574,900 and lowered to $550,000 before it went under agreement and sold for  an even lower price of $548,500.

Relevance:
1) your home currently: Higher. Given that it is in lovely condition, immaculate, similar size, and has 1 car garage and 4 off street parking, I believe it  would sell for higher than your home.

Pricing Recommendation

My analysis of the relevant homes outlined above suggests a final market value for your home in the 2 different types of condition as:

1) your home currently: $440,000 - $470,000
2) your home with minor work, and paint/deleading: $540,000 - $570,000  

Given the current market dynamics in Arlington, I would suggest  listing your home at the lower end of this price range to attract more  interest and potentially multiple offers.  If the market deems your home  to be worth more than the list price, then the price will be pushed  over the market value of your home, and sometimes well over when we get  multiple offers. You can see some examples above that came on the market  for less, and competition pushed them up to the price they sold  for. The challenge in estimating a price for a home is ‘would this home  have sold for this price if they had priced it higher?’ or was  competition the driving factor that got to this price.  Experience tells  me that competition is why they sold for what they did, so we have to  be careful with pricing. Almost every example above where the home is not sold 'As is' shows that the homes that came on the market realistically priced all sold for higher than the asking price, and often higher than their market value because of the emotion of the buyers.

When homes are  overpriced they end up sitting on the market and ultimately selling for  less than market value, whereas homes priced realistically can often  sell for well over market value. Competition is what will get us the  highest sales price. As we see time and time again, if the buyers  consider the market value of your home to be realistic in relation to  the asking price, then competition will push the price up higher and  often over the market value of the home. The challenge with overpricing  is that the buyers are very educated – they go week after week to see  homes in their price range so they KNOW what the prices are and what  ‘feels’ right.

I have to stress that these are  recommendations.  If you decided to sell your home, then we would bring  your home on the market at whatever price you deem to be appropriate.  

When  determining the right price - it all depends on your motivation and  your risk tolerance level. We know that homes that are priced at the  'strike price' will sell quicker and may generate more than one offer.   I’m an excellent negotiator and know how to push a price up if we have  the market activity. I also know that some sellers want to put their  home on for a higher price than I might recommend, which I’m willing to  do, so long as it is understood that putting the home on for more than  the majority of buyers perceive its value, could mean that your home  will have a much longer market time and sell for less than it should  have had it been priced properly out of the gate.

I DO NOT  DETERMINE THE PRICE - the market dictates the value - what a buyer is  willing to pay. My job is to make sure that you have the best market  exposure and that your home is positioned well in the market.   I do not  believe in projecting more money than I think your home will sell for  just to get your business.

My team and I know how to stage and  market your home, and I understand its value, but I can only sell it for  what the market or a buyer will pay. I strongly believe that a home  should be priced compared to the current competition, not just on what  has sold in the last six months.  At the end of the day, you will be  competing for the buyers looking for a home like yours and in the same  price range. You can do far more 'damage' to the resultant price we get  for your home if we overprice. The prospective serious buyers will see  your home within the first weekend of your home coming on the market,  and they will have seen everything else in this price range.  In other  words, the serious buyer knows what is priced well.  If they don't see  value in your home at its listing price and are not motivated to make an  offer, then they will move on and keep looking.  In times of increasing  prices, it is often hard to predict what a home will sell for, but be  assured that even if we price your home lower than what market value is  currently, market dynamics will bring the price of the home up to where  it should be.  Prospective buyers should walk in thinking the price  'feels right' and are motivated to make an offer in the short term,  rather than letting several months’ pass.

It is important to  stress the value of marketing your home to capture the highest price.   In times of low inventory, we know your home will sell by doing the  bare minimum to market it, BUT that is not going to get you the maximum  price for your home.  Key to getting the maximum price for your home is  to prepare a comprehensive marketing plan that incorporates all avenues  available to us to expose your home to the maximum number of buyers out  there looking.  Exposure, and feet in the door, is what will get you the  highest price for your home. Basic ratios help explain this.  If 10% of  the buyers who walk in your door fall in love with your home, then if  you only have 10 buyers walking in, then potentially there is only 1  buyer - if you have 100 buyers walking in your door then using the same  ratios, you will potentially have 10 buyers falling in love with your  home.  10 buyers will push the price up versus only one buyer.

 New statistics state that over 100% of potential buyers  search the web as their primary search vehicle.  Thankfully, your home  will show fabulously in photos. With historically low interest rates  likely to increase and inventory at a 7-year low, there are still homes  that do not sell in this market.  I’m making my recommendations to  ensure that you are one of the sellers who will have success in the  first month of being on the market, but optimally the first weekend.

Rental Analysis

These homes are single family homes rented(except for 1 still on the market) in the last 12 months. Even going 18 months these are the only single family homes with 3 bedrooms that may have some relevance with regard to size. Given these homes, $2600 per month is too high based on 7 Sunset Rd's lack of renting activity even after 66 days on the market. I believe $2300 - $2500 to be a realistic rental rate.
