What James Bond Can Teach You About Canby, Oregon Real Estate

7 Mar
Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Homes

With That Suit & Tie, James Bond Resembles A Well-Mannered Realtor

Compared to the life of famed superspy James Bond, buying or selling Canby, Oregon real estate is dull and monotonous, right? Au contraire. You might be surprised to see how such a  comparison actually sizes up.

Click here or on the play button above to hear the audio podcast of this article.

Not So Mundane, After All
How could the seemingly routine tasks associated with Canby, Oregon real estate possibly compare to the life and adventures of ultra-suave Agent 007? Initially, it seems like a ridiculous question. Of course Bond’s life is far more treacherous, risky and ‘on the edge,’ right? As we’ll soon learn, not exactly. Buyers and sellers of Canby real estate have a lot more in common with the famous spy than first meets the bullseye.

Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Homes

Oregon Real Estate is More Daring Than You Might Think

Deceptively Daring
Many actors have played Agent 007 in film, yet each brings to the Bond character their own unique imprint on the multi-faceted Bond persona. But while each person playing 007 is unique, in each iteration of the well-known agent we recognize Bond’s uncanny ability to ‘land on his feet’ and ‘avoid being bested,’ while inching (or sometimes speeding) toward his well-defined goal. Let’s examine some of the super spy’s cinematic character traits and how they might relate to your next Canby real estate transaction.

Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Homes

Spies & Realtors Both Use Photography to Their Advantage

Turning The Tables
To a Canby homebuyer or homeseller, ‘landing on your feet’ might not equate to jumping from a high rise building. Instead, it might mean effectively dealing with endless surprises…like a low appraisal, or poor home inspection.  It’s helpful to understand that one of Bond’s classic techniques is to shift bad odds to his advantage. Your way to ‘avoid being bested’ may not mean beating the tables at Monte Carlo like James Bond. Instead, it might be skillfully negotiating the terms of your Oregon home transaction. And to a Canby homebuyer or homeseller, Agent 007’s ‘inching to his goal’ could simply mean patiently completing key tasks in order to close the sale. It’s nice to know that unlike the production of a Bond film, Canby homebuyers and homesellers typically complete their ‘mission’ substantially under budget and in a relatively short time span, with no loss of life or limb. This makes you arguably ‘better than Bond.’

Diamonds Are Forever…And So Is Real Estate
Here are some factors that make the so-called ‘average’ Canby, Oregon homeseller or homebuyer more daring than even Agent 007. 

Risk
Agent 007 is frequently seen as daring and a tremendous risk taker. But while it’s true some of Bond’s actions are potentially perilous, it’s helpful to realize that his risks tend to be thoughtfully calculated. 007 is usually well-armed, whether that means carrying his Walther PPK, or preparing mentally for the task at hand. If he’s without a gun, James Bond is able to adapt and improvise, like using a fire extinguisher in the middle of a firefight to provide cover and escape.

Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Homes

You Don’t Need A Gun to Effectively Buy or Sell Canby Real Estate

Charmingly Disarming
But if James Bond gets into a ‘jam’,  he usually has his trusty sidearm to help take care of business. Yet using a small caliber handgun to get your way is not an option for Canby homebuyers and homesellers. As a result, your options are limited to less obviously coercive means than Agent 007 can wield. Requiring the use of ‘wits, not weapons’ takes certain things off the table for you, since Oregon real estate demands non-lethal resourcefulness. By having to use safer and more creative methods of persuasion, it’s fair to say that once again, the average Canby homeseller or homebuyer is arguably ‘better than Bond.’

Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Homes

Effectively Managing Risk Can Pay Off Handsomely

Casino Royale
For an example of Bond’s risk reduction techniques, have you ever seen Agent 007 gamble great sums of his own money on a dice throw? The usual answer is ‘Not a chance.’ That’s because Bond virtually always plays with his government’s money, not his own. Yet you, as a Canby homebuyer or homeseller, are laying your very own hard-earned capital on the table.  So once more, in comparison you can arguably be seen as ‘better than Bond.’

Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Homes

Even Agent 007 Might Find Oregon Real Estate Challenging

Canby, Oregon Real Estate Tip #1 From James Bond: Maintain Your Humor
A superspy like Agent 007 doesn’t  constantly walk around like a tough guy. It’s actually quite the opposite.  Bond knows how to work a room and deliver a well timed joke. ‘Breaking the ice’ to disarm and/or relax the other side with a joke takes some guts…especially when someone means you financial or physical harm.

Savoir-faire
Savoir-faire is a French term that roughly means: knowing what to do in any situation. Those with savoir-faire respond appropriately in a wide variety of circumstances. One dictionary reference suggests savoir-faire as demonstrating “a polished sureness in social behavior.” In other words, classic James Bond behavior, whether it’s disarming a bad guy, nuclear device, or flawlessly ordering the best item off a French menu.

Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Homes

Ordering in French is an Acquirable Skill

Savoir-faire can be adapted to Canby real estate, where a wide variety of ‘tough to predict’ situations occur with surprising frequency.  For sellers, this could mean having a buyer’s loan fail, possibly due to buyer disqualification like a credit score drop, or job change. Or perhaps your home needs a new roof and there simply isn’t sufficient equity to pay for it. Or there’s rampant dry rot. Or severe mold. You get the idea.

How 007’s Savoir-faire Can Work for Canby Homebuyers and Homesellers
A prepared and practical approach to problem solving is what both James Bond and successful Canby, Oregon homebuyers and homesellers bring to the table.  Agent 007 is able to adapt and navigate in almost any environment, whether he finds himself in a high-stakes casino in Monaco, a posh ski lodge in the Swiss Alps, or a poor fishing village in Asia, Bond knows what to do. When buying and selling Canby real estate, you can adapt and navigate in different environments, too, including such changing factors as housing inventory (which can indicate if you’re in a buyer’s or seller’s market) and fluctuating interest rates.

Just realize that no matter how things appear, some factors and outcomes are not completely determinable and sometimes virtually unknowable. For example, let’s say you’re selling your Canby home and have three offers on the table to consider. In this scenario, let’s suppose all buyers appear well-qualified and each offer is very similar to the others. Which one do you decide to accept? Which will actually close? Which buyer will be reasonable to work with? Which lender will have even-handed underwriting and not require needless delay or costs?  Working with your Realtor, you can reduce risk, perhaps by focusing on how much each buyer is willing to pay, their down payment (where a larger down payment makes it easier for them to get a loan) and even the earnest money deposit and time to your closing date. Such an analysis can help boil things down to those that might make the most difference.

Oregon Real Estate

Canby, Oregon Real Estate Tip #2 From James Bond: Always Have a Backup Plan
The key is to limit your downside risk by making the best decision possible under the circumstances and remain alert. For example, if after accepting one offer on your Canby home, the buyers begin loudly complaining about minor issues, have your Realtor stay in touch with other prospective buyers who expressed interest. That way, you keep the door open for a ‘Plan B’ and later, possibly a ‘Plan C’ if initial buyers bail on your home sale.

Canby Oregon, Canby Homes, Canby Real Estate

James Bond Defines Debonair

Debonair
Agent 007 is often described as debonair. How can that term possibly apply to your next Canby real estate transaction? There are varied definitions to the term debonair, but related terms include courtesy, graciousness and having a sophisticated charm. These traits can be powerful and disarming when dealing with the other side on a home sale. An example of courtesy might mean allowing buyers to schedule a tour before closing for measuring room dimensions or determining paint colors. Being gracious could mean as a buyer you allow the home sellers an extra day to move out, particularly if their moving van broke down. Sophisticated charm might mean leaving a box of chocolates or champagne after you sell a home for when your homebuyers finally move in.

Small details perhaps, but such activities are often long remembered. If after moving out, you remember leaving priceless heirlooms in the attic of your former home, imagine how much nicer it will be to request the return of your precious items from the current owners with whom you’ve been civil and friendly. They are also more likely to even contact you if they find something you mistakenly left behind.

Canby Oregon, Canby Homes, Canby Oregon Real Estate

Canby, Oregon Real Estate Tip #3 From James Bond: Secrecy
There’s good reason undercover agents are also known as secret agents. ‘Don’t let them see you sweat’ is an adage Agent 007 works with aplomb. So you don’t want to lose out on your home purchase and are willing to substantially increase your offer, yet don’t want to overpay? Keep those cards discreetly close to your vest and understand that by doing so, you’re modeling James Bond, who can definitely keep a secret. He’s a spy, after all. 
 

Humility
Though James Bond can swagger with the best of those who hold the ’00’ license to kill designation, he’s usually discrete and avoids attention or bragging about his prowess.  Such meekness is supremely beneficial in situations to disarm adversaries, while catching them off guard.  Agent 007 doesn’t often talk about how many people he’s put in the hospital, or his annual income. Simply by observing him, it’s clear Bond has gravitas.

Courage
Having courage when buying or selling Canby property doesn’t mean you don’t feel fear. It does involve pushing that fear aside to rise above whatever obstacle you are facing. Agent 007 pushes himself out of his comfort zone to face serious fears on a daily basis. This gets him used to feeling comfortable with the uncomfortable. As a Canby, Oregon homeseller or homebuyer, once you desensitize yourself to fear, it will become easier to perform courageous acts, like counteroffering that offer you really don’t want to risk losing, or agreeing to substantial repairs in order to pass a home re-inspection and close the deal.

Be Patient
In the middle of a real estate transaction, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. To be successful, it helps to have a well defined plan executed with patience. You also should allow sufficient time for your plan to work. For example, if you’re a Canby homeseller who doesn’t receive an offer in the first few days on the market, understand that if you’ve already examined the latest market data and the average market time is measured in months and not days or even weeks, realize your anxiety may be premature. Keep cool.

‘Q’ Is On Bond’s Team to Keep Him Out of Trouble

Consult An Expert
When buying or selling Canby real estate, it doesn’t hurt to have an experienced Realtor as your own ‘Q’ to keep you out of difficult situations. An experienced real estate broker is someone who has been ‘over the road,’ thereby saving you needless expense, time and worry.

Canby Oregon, Canby Real Estate, Canby Oregon Homes

So rather than having Bond’s sidekick ‘Q’ demonstrating gadgetry and armory (like a blowtorch on Bond’s Aston-Martin convertible), Canby residents can rely on the calm, cool and collected experience of a proven local Realtor to more successfully navigate pitfalls sometimes found in regional real estate.

Canby, Oregon Home Prices Climb

Increased home prices are likely due to the continued low inventory of available homes for sale. With 3 to 6 months frequently cited as an average inventory range of homes under normal conditions, our current 1.4 months of regional home supply suggests a sustained seller’s market.

Canby Real Estate: What’s Ahead In 2015

31 Dec

Predictions on Canby’s real estate market are difficult to make with accuracy. Consider local weather forecasts. Even when armed with technology like detailed satellite images, plus wind, barometric and temperature data, weather forecasters can get it wrong…and that’s for predictions merely a week or two away! 

Canby Homes, Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Properties, Canby Housing, 2015 Canby, Canby 2015, Canby Property

Accurately Predicting Weather & Real Estate Trends Seems Easy

Predicting Canby’s Real Estate Trends
Now imagine the difficulty in predicting real estate market activity a full year into the future. Along with seasonal influences, other challenges in real estate forecasting include changing interest and employment rates, ever-shifting home inventory levels, plus a myriad of lending regulations and the mysteries of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy, just to name a few.  Little wonder, then that some view real estate predictions as akin to flipping a coin or using a dart board.

Canby Homes, Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Properties, Canby Housing, 2015 Canby, Canby 2015, Canby Property

Although Fun, Darts Are Are A Poor Method For Accurate Real Estate Forecasting

Real Estate Forecasting: What Can Work
While not foolproof, one generally helpful tool for predicting future real estate trends can be past real estate trends. Major unpredictable shifts occasionally occur, but the key word here is occasionally.

For example, the Great Recession that hit Canby and the entire country starting around 2007-2008 was our nation’s worst economic downturn since 1929.  Thankfully we haven’t seen such financial meltdowns every year, or every decade, or even every half century. So aside from similar cataclysmic shifts, a certain degree of real estate predictability is possible.

Reasons For 2015 Canby Real Estate Optimism
Several factors are coming together to provide for an optimistic New Year in our area. As you’ll see, some factors are under federal control and others occur locally, but each has an impact on Canby real estate. So if you’ve held off selling your Canby area home, here are four of them that portend a good 2015: 

1. Credit Scores Loosen
Most homebuyers need a home loan, generally known as a mortgage. The good news is that mortgage credit is becoming more available as lenders loosen credit requirements.

Canby Homes, Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Properties, Canby Housing, 2015 Canby, Canby 2015, Canby Property

Credit (FICO) Requirements Have Loosened

2. Lower Down Payments
Government-sponsored loans from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac recently brought out a 3% mortgage option. If conventional lenders also start offering similar low-down payment choices, this could bring more first time homebuyers into the market. This vital Oregon buyer group has long been under-represented, with their levels at the lowest since 1987.

3. Consumer Optimism
Recent figures from the National Association of Realtors confirm homebuyers are now more optimistic. This includes our area. When it comes to single family homes, the ‘Confidence Index’ chart below shows most states now have a majority level of optimism in their region, including ours.

Canby Homes, Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Properties, Canby Housing, 2015 Canby, Canby 2015, Canby Property

Orange & Red = Strong Single Family Home Consumer Confidence

4. Home Inventory Remains Low
Thanks in part to the reduced level of local new construction, home inventory in our region is still near historic lows. Our most recent survey shows we have 3.2 months of housing backlog. This suggests we have more buyers than sellers. As a result, Canby homesellers can take advantage of what remains largely a ‘seller’s market’ heading into 2015.

Our Regional Home Supply Is Low

The Bottom Line
If you’ve held off selling your Canby home because you were ‘under water,’ or concerned about the market being too low, now is a good time to consider re-evaluating.

Canby Homes, Canby Oregon, Canby, Canby Real Estate, Canby Properties, Canby Housing, 2015 Canby, Canby 2015, Canby Property

Many Canby Homeowners Are No Longer ‘Under Water’

Canby’s real estate market has changed. Experts predict regional home price growth to continue at a steady, albeit slower pace through 2015, compared to the 7.2% price increase to date for 2014. As a result, some suggest a 3% annual increase in area home prices. Depending on a variety of factors, that may indeed end up being conservative on the low end. For Canby, expect between 3% to 6% in 2015 home price appreciation.

Canby’s Spendiest Home Sale

25 Nov

As November winds down, recent information from the Regional Multiple Listing Service (RMLS) suggests one Canby home sale will stand out as the most expensive for the month.

However, the property also features over 48 acres and includes water rights, plus mountain views. So this recent sale involves more than the usual home, which helps to explain the higher-than-usual price.

Big Changes Coming To Downtown Canby

21 Nov
Canby Oregon, Canby, 97013, Canby Homes, Canby Homes For Sale, Canby Oregon Real Estate, Canby Oregon Properties, Canby Properties, Canby Realty

One of the Canby, Oregon buildings reportedly for sale

The Portland Business Journal recently reported on some significant upcoming real estate changes about to occur in Canby. Here’s the report, courtesy of the Portland Business Journal:

“Developers interested in redefining an entire downtown might want to check out what’s on the market in Canby.

Thanks to an impending consolidation of city offices into a new civic building and library, the city, a few miles south of Portland, is selling five of its downtown buildings and up to one full city block. The properties are all in the city’s downtown core between First and Third avenues on Holly and Ivy streets.

The buildings to be sold include the existing library, the development services building, the finance building and the former police headquarters. They range in size from around 2,000 square feet to about 10,000 square feet.

Renate Mengelberg, economic development director for the city, said the city does not have a firm asking price for the properties because it wants to encourage a wide array of development proposals.

“We are willing to be flexible and really want to encourage creative proposals,” she said, adding that the new civic building will be completed in 2016.

The city has issued a Request for Expressions of Interest to spur development ideas. An open house and tours of the properties will be held on Nov. 19. Proposals will be due Jan. 9, 2015.

The city is looking for ideas for one or more of the properties from local businesses looking for space or developers who might be interested in a project of a bigger scale. Officials will also be looking for proven development teams with solid financial resources. That said, the city is also open to assisting through its façade improvement program and a revolving loan program that provides loans of up to $250,000.

In addition, the city of Canby has applied for a vertical housing program that would provide a 10-year property tax abatement of second- to fourth-story residential development over retail. It expects to gain approval for the zone by the end of this year.”

Canby Real Estate Update

A new study from Ticor Title Company suggests our Canby real estate market is stabilizing. For now at least, gone are Canby’s big swings in home price and market time.
