Wire Scam

Wire scam is something you may have heard of before. You may have even found yourself wondering how it happens. Well, I’m here to let you know that wire scam is still a thing because it still works. Here is what sometimes takes place:

Homebuyers keep losing deposits and even homes under contract because hackers jump in at the last minute and email them false wiring instructions.

Under the scam, a criminal gains access to emails from a trusted partner in a home buying transaction, such as a title company, lawyer or construction firm. They monitor back-and-forth communications until it’s time to make a deposit or send a final amount to close on the home. Since the hackers have access to a transaction firm’s email system, the buyer receives an email that actually came from the trusted business they’ve been working with. In these cases, scammers may monitor correspondence about specific transactions for months before swooping in to send fake wiring instructions.

When the scam email arrives, it appears legitimate. However, it typically contains a slight variances in the links if the buyer chooses to respond via “reply,” such as a return email address that has a “1” somewhere in the middle where an “i” usually appears.

The results can cost buyers tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.

You may think it sounds crazy (how could someone make that mistake) yet there are 2,300 complaints of cybercrime a day.

It is important to be cautious during every step of a real estate transaction. As a realtor/broker, I always make sure to help my clients through the process.

Our Local Market

There has been a lot of talk lately about the real estate market. Is it crashing? Is it booming? Is it a buyers or sellers market? Are prices going up or down? National news keeps giving their opinions to these questions. Well here is mine!

Don’t listen to or believe the national news! Every market is different. Real estate is local to each market and Florida is unique from all other states. Local real estate is still strong for our area!

I just closed on three deals last week and their list to sell ratios were 93.3%, 98.3% and 100%. Price it right and it will sell.

Three key indicators of a real estate market are: Active inventory, median sales price, and median time to sale. We can see that as inventory goes down, median sale price starts to increase. It’s a simple display of supply and demand – the less there is of something, the more expensive it will be. However, things may be starting to shift. After bottoming out in February 2022, active inventory has increased each month. While the median sale prices are still high, the pace of growth has started to slow, perhaps an indication that more inventory is lessening the competition among buyers who can put more reasonable deals together. Then you have to consider how long deals are taking to go from list to closed. The faster this pace, the “frothier” the market.

No two parts of Florida are the same (let alone different states) and neither are their real estate markets. Having a realtor that understands the local market is so important. If you ever have any questions I would be more than happy to help!
