National Housing Report
A sixth consecutive month of declining home sales in January
contributed to the largest year-over-year inventory increase in at least ten
years, according to the RE/MAX National
While year-over-year home sales dropped eleven percent – extending
a streak that began in August – inventory grew year-over-year by an average of
6.4 percent across the report’s fifty-four U.S. metro areas. January marked the
fourth consecutive month of year-over-year inventory growth – further reversing
a decade-long trend of shrinking inventory. December 2018’s year-over-year
inventory growth of 4.7 percent was the previous record in the report’s
“The winter chill extended to the housing market in January, as
home sales remained cool,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “The good news is that
inventory levels in January continued to rise on a year-over-year basis,
providing incremental improvement in what’s been a multi-year shortage of
for-sale homes. This is a positive for homebuyers, as the market continues to
swing their way.”
The median sales price of $234,000 was a report record for
January, increasing 4.6 percent over January 2018. But the rate of sales price
increase was considerably less than the 6.7 percent posted from January 2017 to
January 2018. December 2018 was the only month since January 2012 to show a
year-over-year decline in median sales price. Fifty-nine days on market was a
record low for January sold listings – averaging one day less than the 60
posted in January 2018. January’s 3.9-month supply of inventory was higher than
the 3.4-month supply of January 2018.
“Underlying demand remains solid overall, as evidenced by
widespread price increases,” said Contos. “So the housing market, while not
markedly busy in January, remains relatively healthy. Furthermore, with
interest rates stabilizing and home-price increases slowing, the spring selling
season shapes up to be as interesting as any we have seen in years.”
Of the 54 metro areas surveyed in January 2019, the overall
average number of home sales was down 26.1 percent compared to December 2018,
and down 11.0 percent compared to January 2018. In January 2019, the median of
all 54 metro Median Sales Prices was $234,000, down 2.5 percent from December
2018, and up 4.6 percent from January 2018. The average Days on Market for
homes sold in January 2019 was fifty-nine, up four days from the average in
December 2018, and down one day from the January 2018 average. For more info,

3 Healthy Tips for National Heart Health Month
February is National Heart Health Month and the perfect time to be good to your heart and get a checkup. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women in the United States. Also, more than sixty-seven million Americans have high blood pressure which unfortunately makes them four times more likely to die from a stroke and three times more likely to die from heart disease, compared to those with normal blood pressure according to data from the CDC. Here are 3 healthy tips for National Heart Health Month to help keep your heart in tip-top ticking shape.
1.) Eat a healthy and balanced diet that is high in fiber, including fresh fruits and vegetables and avoid foods high in sodium and trans-fat.
2.) Exercise for 30 minutes a day at least five times a week. If 30 minutes is too much, start with 10-minute intervals of physical activity. Please talk to a health care professional before starting a new fitness routine.
3.) According to the American Heart Association (AHA) chronic stress can also increase your risk for heart disease. Make time to reduce stress and relax more by taking time to sit quietly, breathe deeply, and think of peaceful things. Whenever possible, try to avoid triggering or negative situations and focus on positive thinking and solutions.

RE/MAX National Housing Report for December 2018
December’s declining home sales and growing inventory solidified 2018 as the year the red-hot seller’s market moved toward a balanced market. Price growth also moderated, though December was the 33rd consecutive month of year-over-year increases in home prices, according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report, which includes fifty-three metro areas.
“December’s inventory gain, continuing the three-month growth trend, is welcome news,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “The market remains choppy and there’s still a long way to go, but these gains represent steps toward a balanced market, which in the long run is healthy for both buyers and sellers.”
Most telling was December’s 4.6 percent growth in inventory, which was also a report record. December’s year-over-year inventory increase marked the third consecutive month of growth – a trend reversing a decade-long streak of year-over-year inventory declines.
While fifty-four Days on Market was a record low for December sold listings, the 4.1 Months Supply of Inventory was higher than December 2017’s 3.7 months and ahead of November 2018’s 3.9 months’ supply.
Home buyers paid record amounts throughout 2018 as prices grew year-over-year in every month last year, led by June’s Median Sold Price of $258,500 – an all-time report high. Even so, December’s year-over-year increase of 2.1% was 2018’s smallest, and far lower than the 8.1 percent price growth from December 2016 to December 2017.
“Home sales have cooled, especially during the second half of 2018, but that was inevitable given the strong seller’s market that has persisted for nearly a decade,” Contos said. “We believe sales activity can pick back up if the pace of price escalation continues to moderate, interest rates tick further downward, and wage growth continues.”

West Valley Hearing Loss Association to Host Presentation in Sun City
Did you know? Approximately one in three people between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss, and nearly half of those older than 75 has difficulty hearing according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. Hearing loss is a common problem for older adults and those with hearing loss may find it hard to have conversations with friends and family. They may also have trouble understanding a doctor’s advice, responding to warnings, and hearing doorbells and alarms. Studies have also shown that aging adults with hearing loss have a greater risk of developing dementia than older adults with normal hearing.
Sun City is aware of the impact of hearing loss on it’s aging active adults and is seeking to help. The Hearing Loss Association of America’s West Valley Chapter will welcome Keri Reynolds, a bilateral cochlear implant recipient and an Outreach Manager with Med El, for a presentation on dementia and hearing loss on Tuesday, Feb. 12 from 1-3 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 12225 N. 103rd Ave., in Sun City.
Ms. Reynolds will talk about the link between dementia and hearing loss. This is a particularly important topic for individuals with hearing loss. Older people who can’t hear well may become depressed, or they may withdraw from others because they feel frustrated or embarrassed about not understanding what is being said. Sometimes, older people are mistakenly thought to be confused, unresponsive, or uncooperative because they don’t hear well. Hearing problems that are ignored or untreated can get worse but thankfully there are options such as hearing aids, special training, certain medicines, and surgery.
The Chapter will continue its meeting with a presentation about InnoCaption by Matt Goncalves and Cristina Duarte, founders of InnoCaption. InnoCaption is a free mobile app for Apple and Android smartphones, which provide real-time captioning on incoming and outgoing phone calls, for the oral deaf and the hard of hearing. Please bring questions and concerns, and family and friends to join the discussion.

3 Nifty New Year’s Resolutions for Retirees in 2019
Can you believe 2019 is here? I’m certainly looking forward to a happy and healthy New Year for my family, friends, and myself. Seeing how this is the time for New Year’s resolutions and hopes for the New Year, here are 3 nifty New Year’s resolutions for retirees in 2019.
1.) Finalize a Financial Plan: Whether you’re drawing social security, working part-time, or making investments, having a strong financial plan is key to fully enjoying retired living. Creating a budget plan and actively tracking your spending habits can also help you create a budget to live within your means. Since you basically have two options; make more money or spend less money here’s what to do. To make more, consider when annuitizing your savings to guarantee an income stream or manage your own money in the market. To spend less, consider downsizing to an area where the cost of living is lower and mortgage payments are reduced.
2.) Healthy Aging: In 2019, focus on making your health a top priority so you can enjoy your retirement to the fullest. Make sure to get an annual physical exam from your doctor and create a health plan to maintain your health. Enjoy nutritious eating by preparing healthy meals with fresh ingredients from your local Arizona farmers markets. Stay active and seek out senior-friendly exercise programs that help improve vitality such as swimming, walking, qigong, and yoga. And keep your brain sharp with memory improving exercises like Sudoku puzzles or consider becoming more tech savvy and take a free computer class in your area.
3.) Master Your SSN Benefits: For many Arizona retirees, Social Security retirement benefits are an important income source. Nine out of ten people age sixty-five and over claim Social Security benefits and they average nearly forty percent of total income of people in this age bracket. And how you claim Social Security and greatly impact your benefit amount. Your Social Security increase by eight percent per year, so the longer you wait to claim the more you’ll be able to claim. To find out the best option for you, speak to a financial advisor.

Welcome Back to the Valley of the Sun, Snowbirds!
Fall is here and with Arizona temperatures dipping back into the 80’s, you may have noticed the migration of winter snowbirds returning to the Valley of the Sun. For those who don’t know, snowbirds are seasonal residents who visit warmer climates to escape the harsh winters of their main hometowns. Most hail from the Midwest, Western states, Pacific coast and Canada. Snowbird season is usually from October through May and with it, locals see an influx of retirees, Baby Boomers, and active adults soaking up the sun and enjoying all the amenities Arizona has to offer.
Local snowbirds are often retirees, having no attachments or obligations, and having the freedom to do what they want. Snowbirds move in the same general migratory pattern, but they take very different paths to their winter havens and spend their time differently. Baby Boomers in their 50s are a newer breed of Snowbird often choosing to purchase property in favorable markets and gradually spend more time in the state as they near retirement. From vacation rentals and condos to Arizona homes, some snowbirds are choosing to become permanent residents by their late senior years.
Various well-to-do snowbird retirees land in Sun City and other popular Arizona retirement communities to buy second homes, play tennis or hike, attend the theater and check out art galleries and shopping malls. Developments like Sun City Grand in Surprise and Trilogy at Vistancia in Peoria are catering to middle and upper-middle income snowbirds. And with so much to do from swimming laps in the pool to enjoying a round of golf, it’s no wonder so many visitors choose to make Arizona their second home. Either way, they’re enriching Arizona’s culture, community and economy and we extend them a welcome as warm as the weather. Welcome back to the Valley of the Sun, snowbirds!
So whether you’re an active adult seeking a seasonal get-a-way in Sun City or an Arizona retiree searching to buy a home in an Arizona retirement community, contact Sharon Mason, your retirement expert, for all your living and retirement needs!

June 2018 RE/MAX National Housing Report
The housing prices are at record highs while inventory is at record lows and home sales are trailing 2017’s pace, according to the RE/MAX National Housing Report. June sales were 5.5 percent lower than June 2017 in the fifty-four metro areas surveyed, marking the seventh consecutive month of year-over-year declines.
Headed in the opposite direction, the June Median Sales Price of $258,500 was an all-time high in the nine-year history of the report. It was 5.1 percent higher than the $245,000 recorded last June, bringing the consecutive months of year-over-year price increases to 27. In each of the previous five years – going back to June 2013’s $193,750 – June has posted the highest Median Sales Price of the year.
“Year-over-year prices have been climbing for more than two years now, which is great news for homeowners and sellers,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “In the hottest markets, demand is especially high because there simply aren’t that many homes for sale. The slower sales figures we’re seeing are tied to inventory more than anything else.”
Forty-two of the fifty-four metro areas reported a year-over-year drop in inventory. That years-long trend is reflected in Months Supply of Inventory dropping to 2.7 – down 8.8 percent year-over-year and the smallest figure ever recorded for June. Fewer houses for sale generally results in a faster process: Homes sold in June averaged just forty-two Days on Market – five days less than June 2017 and three days under the previous nine-year low of forty-five days.
“Lack of inventory has become a theme for the year,” Contos said. “Having fewer homes to choose from poses a challenge for buyers, who need to be ready to act decisively and quickly. Working with a full-time, professional RE/MAX agent can prepare them for that.”

New Library in Glendale Coming in Spring 2019
New builds in the Valley of the Sun are always exciting, because they bring new employment, new revenue and new services and amenities to the community. That’s just one of the many reasons so many residents are excited that construction for the new library in Glendale that’s coming in spring 2019!
The Heroes Regional Park Library in Glendale recently broke ground and will be part of the Heroes Regional Park, at 83rd Avenue Bethany Home Road, which has been a work in progress for two decades. The park is currently a mix of play structures and ramadas and vacant land. After long last, part of that vacant land will be used for Glendale’s fourth library branch. A ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony for the the new library was held last month and construction officially began a few weeks ago. The library is scheduled to open in Spring 2019.
“The Heroes Regional Park Library, while long overdue, is such an exciting opportunity to provide free and equitable access to information, technology and cultural and educational materials to our citizens,” said Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers. “I want to thank our City Council, especially Yucca District Council member Joyce Clark, for their support. Our Library Board, our city staff — it takes everyone working together to make it happen.”
The new 7,500 square-foot library will serve an estimated 80,000 visitors annually and bring an array of library programs, services and the latest innovations in library technologies to Glendale’s west side. It will eventually have a collection of about 25,000 books. Facility amenities will include dedicated children’s and “teen’s only” patio areas. A large glass window will bring the park inside.
Staffing the new branch will be fifteen employees, adding up to seven and a half full-time equivalent salaries. The new library will also likely offer volunteer positions which are a great activity for active adults and Arizona retirees looking to give back to the community and stay active.

3 Senior Housing Trends for 2018
Now more than ever, Arizona retirees, active adults and baby boomers are reinventing the idea of retirement, taking control of their quality of life, and making their own choices for their personalized retirement experience. The aging population is more active, more empowered about their health care choices, and wanting different living accommodations to better suit their retirement needs. These changes have contributed to these 3 senior housing trends for 2018.
1.) Amenities: Today’s seniors aren’t sitting in rocking chairs on the front porch anymore. They’re playing pickle ball, hiking, going back to school and staying more active than ever before. Due to this, many facilities are considering the area’s appeal to active adults. Arizona retirement communities are offering more amenities and more senior-friendly activities for those early retirement years.
2.) Independence: More Arizona retirement communities are embracing baby boomers and retirees who can live comfortably on their own. The housing market for older adults is gradually adapting to the need of younger retirees by providing self-governing living facilities that encourage and celebrate independence.
3.) Aging in Place: A recent AARP study estimates that nearly ninety percent of people over age sixty-five want to stay in their home for as long as possible. Because of this senior housing trend, there has been a development of more affordable-in-home care programs. There has also been an increase in health technology from wearable medical alert bracelets to health apps for smart phones to help make home care more viable and manageable for Arizona seniors.
If you are an active adult looking for an Arizona retirement community to enjoy your golden years or are looking to downsize or sell your Sun City home, please contact Sharon Mason today!
June National Housing Report
Homes sold faster in May than at virtually any other time in the past decade, according to the latest RE/MAX National Housing Report. Low inventory and high demand in May cut Days on Market to 46, the second-lowest monthly number in the nearly 10-year history of the report. May home sales topped April sales by 14.5 percent, and were down by 2.8 percent from May 2017. The median sales price of $251,673 was up 7.8 percent. By comparison, homes averaged five more days on the market (51) in May 2017, 12 more days (58) in May 2016 and 18 more days (64) in 2015.
“Even with low inventory and the Federal Reserve raising interest rates, homes are going from ‘for sale’ to sold 28 percent faster than three years ago,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos.
With eleven metro areas increasing the median sales price year-over-year by double digits, May is still a seller’s market, and homebuyers should expect to compete with other buyers when they are ready to make an offer on a home.
“Be prepared — that’s my message to potential homebuyers in this summer selling season,” added Contos. “Make sure you are pre-approved with a lender, try to make a clean offer with no contingencies and, if possible, consider offering favorable concessions to the seller such as a flexible closing date. Pairing today’s real estate technology with the guidance of a professional RE/MAX agent, can help you find the right home.”

3 Ways to Enjoy a Fun Retirement Staycation
Now’s the fun time of year where many Arizona retirees begin taking their summer vacations. From taking adult cruises to the Bahamas to snorkeling off the Cayman Islands and hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro. But these days, more and more active adults are opting to stay close to home and enjoy all the amenities their community has to offer. This has aptly been called taking a “staycation” which is a slang term for frugal vacation without leaving your hometown. Whether you’re saving up or just don’t feel like traveling this year, here are 3 ways to enjoy a fun retirement staycation.
1.) Create a Staycation Schedule: Can you believe there are Arizona retirees who have lived in Arizona their entire life and have not seen the Grand Canyon? If you’re one of those, create a staycation itinerary of some fun places to visit or local things to do. Pick up the paper or check out a local even page online to see what’s happening that you’d be interested in. Visit local art exhibits, craft shows, free live entertainment venues, museums, or try out that new restaurant you’ve been hearing about. The possibilities are endless when you stay in town so why not explore them?
2.) Homeward Bound: Who says you can’t have fun in your own home? It’s easy to get into a daily routine rut that has you yawning long after you’ve started your day. So breaking the bonds of your normal home routines can be a great way to enjoy your staycation. Indulge in some new hobbies like planting a garden, taking a recreational online class, or trying a new recipe in the kitchen. If you’re feeling more social than solitary, you can host a weekly book club or host a wine tasting party at home. Fire up the grill and have a dinner party to remember right in your own backyard!
3.) Get Outside: Early mornings and evenings are still great times to discover the hidden gem bike riding trails, join a hiking club, or even indulge in some camping near a lake. Stargazing on a night hike away from the city is a great way to appreciate and connect with nature. Not into trekking and sweating? The many outdoor spring festivals, farmers markets, and public barbeques happening valley wide can help give you a healthy dose of vitamin D and a shot of retail therapy too.
Having fun doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg, and staying in doesn’t have to be a bore. If you’re interested in finding more retirement activities for a staycation in your area or if you’re an active adult seeking the perfect home in Sun City, please contact Sharon Mason today!
Top 3 Super Summer Health Tips for Seniors
Though the first day of summer is stilltechnically not for another month, there’s no denying that it’s already beginning to heat up in Arizona. And while the summertime is a time of relaxation for most people, for older adults, the heat and sun can be dangerous if the proper precautions aren't taken. Here are the top 3 super summer health tips for seniors that Arizona retirees and active adults can use to make sure they have a fun, safe summer.
1.) Watch for heat stroke: It is extremely important to watch for signs of heat stroke, especially for Arizona retirees. Some signs to look for include confusion, disorientation, dry skin, excessive tiredness, headache, lethargy, nausea, and a rapid pulse. If you or someone you know experiences these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.
2.) Stay hydrated: By the time you’re thirsty, your body is already dehydrated. For active adults, the feeling of thirst decreases as we age, so be sure to increase your water intake if you are exercising or doing any type of prolonged physical activity. Aim to drink six to eight glasses of water per day.
3.) Apply Bug Spray: The elderly is unfortunately prone to the Zika Virus, West Nile Virus and encephalitis. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, use mosquito repellent to help reduce the risk of getting bit by a mosquito carrying this virus.
The beautiful Arizona summers can bring a few dangers for Arizona retirees including sunburn, eye damage, dehydration, heat exhaustion and more. If you follow these top 3 super summer health tips for seniors, there's no reason you can't have an enjoyable and fun-filled summer -- no matter your age.
