    Celebrate the Holidays by joining us in Grove's downtown for the annual Christmas parade. The streets of Grove come alive with over 75 lighted floats, bands and community organizations all decked out in holiday lights. The parade starts promptly at 6:00 p.m. from the Grove Civic Center, then travels north up the hill and through town to the downtown area. At the four way stop the parade will make a left hand turn and travel west on 3rd street, passing right in front of the Grove Community Building. That is where the judges will be; it is the perfect viewing location. The parade will end just a few blocks down the hill in the parking lot past Braums on the left.

    You can tune into our very own KGVE radio station to hear comments on each and every float as they pass by the judges. This is always a fun community event. As with all small towns, if you are not in the parade, you are watching the parade. So grab the kids, bundle up, and come out and line the downtown streets of Grove this Saturday. Merry Christmas everyone!

    208 MPH was the fastest speed run by a boat called American Ethenol. We were so excited to have the 2nd annual GLOC shootout on Grand Lake on July 7-10th, 2016! Performance boats from all over the US gathered on the shores of Grand Lake to race a new two mile course and a four day event. See you in 2017!

    Homes under contract and waiting to close are 12% higher than one year ago and the average sales price of homes sold are up almost 15% from a year ago (higher priced homes are selling). Total home sales are identical for the 1st 4 months of 2016 compared to 2015 at 235 sales but total listings available for sale are down 4.5% to 1570 properties. Average days on the market for sold homes are still 6 months and there is 12 months of inventory available to sell. A balanced market is 6 months or less of inventory so we still have a long way to go before we will start seeing a rise in home values in the lake area.

    Fastest Markets in the U.S. for days on the market: Top 5 are Kansas, Colorado, Minnesota, Washington and Oregon at up to 30 days. Texas and Nebraska were 30-45 days and Oklahoma, Iowa and South Dakota were 46 to 60 days. North Dakota, the hottest Market starting 2015, was one of the slowest markets in early 2016 based on the price collapse of oil at over 90 days. Grand Lake in comparison was averaging 180 days average market time.
    The Shiller Housing report showed that nationally home prices grew at 5.1% February 2015 to February, 2016.

    Other good news that should affect the housing industry: The national unemployment rate in 2010 was 9.6%, March of 2015 it was 5.5% and march , 2016 it stood at 5%.Unemployment claims are at the lowest level since 2006.

    U.S. and NE Oklahoma Economic and Housing Data and Forecast for the Rest of 2015:
    Data from NAR’s Chief economist, Lawrence Yun and the NE Oklahoma board of Realtors and MLS

    GDP for the rest of 2015 will pick up in the 2nd ½ of the year but only 2.1 percent, good but not great.
    Lower gas prices will increase consumer spending about 3%
    Nationally and locally, construction spending increased 6% in the 1st ½ of 2015 and should increase at an even faster pace the last 6 months of 2015.
    2.5 million NET jobs should be created in the U.S. during 2015.

    There is a national housing shortage. Prior to 5 years ago there were around 1.5 million new units being built each year. Since then only around 750,000 homes have been built each year. We may not see 1.5 million units again until 2017. Most foreclosures (the Shadow Inventory) have been sold. Foreclosures now make up less than 10% of national sales and continue to fall.

    Historically low interest rates (3% range) have made owning a home very affordable. This may change soon and quickly. Demand is forcing home prices up (not so much in the Grand Lake area) and interest rate increases will make payments increase substantially. Example: $200,000 loan at 3.5% for 30 years is $898 P&I. At 6% this payment would be $1199.
    Nationally home prices are increasing faster the wage earners incomes.

    What does this all mean? Existing and new home sales will continue to rise. There will be 5.5 million home sales in 2015, a 7% increase from 2014. Home sales are still 25% below sales prior to the 2004-2006 periods.

    What’s happening in the Grand Lake, Oklahoma area.
    Home sales YTD from 2014 to 2015 are down 1%
    Pending sales (homes under contract) are down 1.3% from 2014
    Total listings available to sell are down 3% from the same period in 2014. (good news for price increases)
    The average sales price of homes sold in the 1st 3 quarters of 2015 compared to 2014 is down 6.12%. $160,949 compared to $171,443 last year.
    There is over a year’s inventory of homes in the Grand Lake area assuming no new listings were added to the market. This is more than double what major metro areas have in the 4-States.
    Average days on the market stayed at the 6 month level. This is four times the average time on the market of a Wichita, KS home.
    The average sold to list ratio dropped substantially last month. August saw the highest level for 2015 at 92.8% of value but September sales dropped to 86% of last listed price. This is also indicative of the end of the summer selling season at the lake.
    All in all the market is stable in the Grand Lake area. Well priced and updated homes are selling but not any faster than they have for the last two years. Prices have not really increased since the 2007-2008 period. In fact if the home has not been updated or is not in good repair you might see them selling for a discount compared to the go-go years in the early 2000’s.

    Grand Lake is one of the few lakes in the United States that allows waterfront homes with docks. You will find homes at Grand Lake on the rivers or main lake from the low $100's to the multi millions of dollars. There are over 1300 miles of shore line at Grand Lake and over 46,500 surface acres of water. Grand Lake is 67 miles long and is located in parts of three Oklahoma counties. Grand Lake is controlled by the Grand River Dam Authority and not the U.S. Corp of Engineers. This is why you are able to build and have waterfront homes at Grand Lake.
