Changes big and small are all around

by DeLois Smith

Dear Friends,

What a refreshing beautiful spring/early summer we have enjoyed locally! Of course, this came after the February tornadoes and the loss of 560 of our local homes. For now, the magnificent magnolias, daylilies, gardenias, and hydrangeas are a daily delight. 

Our family enjoyed our BIG graduation event in Vancouver where my daughter DeLisa was awarded a doctorate in soil sciences from the University of British Columbia. She has gained respect from her professional peer group for her research and practical application in sustainable, regional food resources. Grandson Andrew, a senior agri-econ major at Mississippi State, is involved this summer in a fascinating work/research project related to solutions for the diminishing water resources in the Mississippi Delta. It is encouraging to see our younger generations involved in these important issues of feeding future generations. 

Opportunities abound in the housing market but challenges remain! The shape of home ownership and housing markets has changed dramatically and will continue to change. This fact is locally obvious and it was highlighted recently at the Realtors 2013 Mid Year Legislative Meeting and Expo. 

Pine Belt Real Estate Snapshot

  • Our average team home sale is $181,258, the lowest is 5 years. The local MLS Average is $138,874 currently. 
  • Homebuyer expectations are high -  
  • • unwilling to compromise for a home that does not accomodate their personal lifestyle choices
  • • exceptional value often including neighborhood amenities
  • • almost always immaculate condition with no deferred maintenance. 
  • The $150,000-$299,000 has returned to a significantly higher market demand. The $150,000 and below has consistantly been at higher demand; but, the $300,000 and above demand remains soft.
  • Nearly all of the speculative new construction is below $250,000.
  • Fewer move-up buyers; increase in move-down buyers.
  • Slightly higher interest rates and higher PMI costs.
  • Price sensitivity for both buyers and sellers.

“Residential mobility has been falling since the 1990s from 20% then to 12% now. In the future, proposed regulations requiring larger down payments could also significantly impact mobility.” - NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. 

“Homes, on the whole, remain very affordable. Only 13% of medium family income is being consumed by mortgage payments versus 24% in 2006.” - Kiplenger Letter

The majority of current home owners will have new record-low interest rates. They are unlikely to give their low rates up to buy a new home. 

Homeownership continues to help build wealth especially for lower to middle income families, despite the recent housing crisis.

Right now is a special “moment in time” to buy a home or invest in rental property. Our buyer specialists stand ready to help your family locate a new home for your family or an investment to help you hedge against inflation. 

Looking forward to seeing you and your families at our 14th Annual July 4th Celebration! 

Your Grateful Realtors,

Realtor.com app provides quality home search

by Josh Bellew

Realtor.com AppOver the past year that I have been with The All Star Team, I have been asked numerous times about the best way to search for homes using a mobile device. In today’s market, there are many different options for the home buyer looking for that perfect home, including mobile versions of agent’s websites and truly dedicated apps from national search companies. You can spend more time searching for a search tool than actually searching for a home. So after a year of trying out all of the options, I am ready to give my stamp of approval.


After experimenting with countless mobile websites and popular mobile apps on both Apple and Android devices, I have found myself always reverting back to the Realtor.com app. The Realtor.com app, in my opinion, was the easiest to navigate and worked consistently across all platforms. It also gives you the ability to communicate with your Buyer’s Agent in a convenient format. Here are several of the features that keep me going back to the Realtor.com app while searching for houses.


The most up to date home information. Realtor.com is linked directly with the Hattiesburg MLS, the listing service used by all Realtors in the Hattiesburg area. When we list a home, change a price, or update a status, Realtor.com receives this information in about 15 minutes and makes the appropriate changes. Other apps like Zillow and Trulia can take up to 2 or 3 days to update.


Location based home searches – This is one of my favorite features of the Realtor.com. It can detect the general area you are in and show you homes that are within a certain radius. This is incredibly useful if you like to search for homes by driving in the areas you like. Sometimes you may not know there is an excellent neighborhood tucked away in the woods off the major highways, but now you will be able to scout out the area without wasting time.


Full screen photo slide show. The Realtor.com app offers a great way to view the home photos. Once you are looking at the listing, just touch the photo of the home and a full screen slide show pops up that allows you to easily swipe through the photos.


Open House list – We all like an open house. It’s a great way to quickly view a house you’re interested in, especially when you are just starting your search. Realtor.com gives the agents in our area the ability to list our Open Houses. Curious if there are any Open Houses while you’re searching? Just go to the app’s home screen and click Open Houses. If any are scheduled, you will see a list of addresses and times. (Be sure to check it out before our Tour Of Homes each month.)


Collaborative Search – One of the most useful features of the Realtor.com app is the ability to connect with our Buyer Agents while you are searching for a home. The app allows you to sync your login with the agent you are working with. You can then easily let the agent know which houses you are interested in and request a showing of a specific house. Once connected, your agent will be able to recommend houses that you may be interested in, allowing you to easily view the home and let your agent know your thoughts. If you would like to connect with your agent on the Realtor.com app, just ask and they will email you an invitation to connect.
These are just a few of the many features that make this my “go-to” app when searching for homes. As always, if you ever have a question about searching for homes online, feel free to give me a call or, better yet, stop by the office and say hello.

Star Chat from DeLois

by DeLois Smith

Dear Friends,
This really is my 40th year to serve in the intense and ever-changing role as a Residential Realtor in the greater Hattiesburg Area. I have loved the opportunity to be closely connected with families of the area who were buying and selling their homes. Frequently, I have had the joy of working with first, second and even third generations and sometimes it has been the estate homes of friends that I have had close personal relationship for many years. Those are the sad times of reflecting on the brevity of life.
My passion for helping families buy or sell their homes is as intense as it was in August 1973 when I first convinced a young family that 910 Quinn Street should be their “home sweet home” at $16,500.00. Adam says, “Selling a family home to DeLois is like a dose of Vim and Vigor!”
In 1977, when we first opened Hattiesburg’s first franchised office, Hattiesburg Gallery of Homes, our very first clients were Dr. John and Cathy Dudley as they sold their first home on Prince George and purchased their current home in SW Hattiesburg.
My 40 years of local experience has taken me through two major recessions; no financing in the early 70’s except owner financing or FHA or VA Assumption; interest rates from 16-21% in the 80’s; a steady annual appreciation of 3% from 1990-2005; Katrina and recent tornadoes with a loss or severe damage to 560 local homes; and now New Hope!
“The most significant differences between 2012 and 2013 is in single word: Confidence
– consumer confidence is at its highest level in almost five years. Consumers
believe that real estate is a safe investment. They are also feeling a need to get in the market before it’s too late.” RIS Media Real Estate.
Market strategy, negotiating skills and trend spotting have never been more critical
to buyers and sellers than right now. If you have needed or wanted to make a move in the past five year, Now is the time! Here are some important facts for your consideration:
• Cheaper to Buy than rent – Today it is 44% cheaper to buy versus rent.
• Mortgage Rates Moving Forward- The MBA projects 30 year mortgage rates will be 4.3% by the end of the year.
• Cumulative appreciation by 2017 – Locally I expect to be in the 15% range over the next five years.
• Move-up Buyer Savings – Currently a young family can move from a home in the $150,000 range with higher rate financing to $200,000 without an increase in payment. In the $300,000 - $400,000 with a $100,000 increase in value, there is likely to be money left over!
Our team of cutting edge professionals has never been better equipped to help you move smoothly through the process of marketing your current home and helping
you and your family get well positioned to meet your present and future home ownership needs.
In my 40 years of service to home buyers and sellers, I’ve not seen a better opportunity!
Call us to help you, your friends, or family move!

Should I Buy a Home Now?

by DeLois Smith

I'm often asked if this is a good time to buy a home. Some clients are concerned that home prices may fall further than they have already. They are assuming that the best course of action is to wait for the bottom in the market and then buy. The problem with this approach is that you don't know where the bottom is until you see it in the rear view mirror, meaning until you've missed it!

Home prices are one factor in determining your cost of ownership, but so are interest rates and financing availability. Even though interest rates have gone up in the last six months, they are still near historic lows. Since your monthly mortgage payment is a combination of paying down your principal and paying the interest owed, if home prices come down a little further but interest rates go up, it could cost you even more to service a mortgage on an identical home!

While a home is a major investment, it is also the center of your personal life. It's important to live in a home that reflects your taste and values, yet is within your financial "comfort zone." To that end, it may be more important to lock in today's relatively low interest rates and low home prices, rather than to hope for a further break in prices in the future.

Please give me a call if I can be of any assistance in determining how much home you can afford in today's market.

Jennifer's Journal - March 2013

by Jennifer Beightol

My name is Jennifer Beightol. I am the Listing Coordinator here at The DeLois Smith All Star Team, Realtors. Like many of you, my husband and I are not originally from Hattiesburg. It has been nearly thirteen years since we made the decision to move to Hattiesburg. We wanted our daughter to have the opportunity to grow up in the same type of environment that we had grown up in. You know that wholesome “Walton’s-like”… life centers around family, church, community and oh yea … Ike Godsey’s Store… type of environment.


Definitely not the fast paced work around the clock environment we were living in Atlanta. So we packed the truck, loaded the van and moved ourselves and our five year old to Hattiesburg. It was a difficult transition at first, especially for the five year old who wondered where the rest of the mall was. But, I am pleased to report we adapted and for the most part have been very happy with the move.


Hattiesburg delivered! Family was a big reason for our move to Hattiesburg. It was very important to us that our daughter be raised around her extended family….to have that connection. At the time of our move my husband’s immediate family had also relocated to the “Burg” from Waynesboro. Now we were no longer the only Beightol’s in town. It was a wonderful change to be able to have Sunday lunch with family again. We found an amazing church. I am still often awed by their caring, goodness and generosity.


Ours is just one of the churches in Hattiesburg… there are many… filled with wonderful people doing wonderful things. I am proud and humbled to say we have been warmly invited to worship with quite a few of them. The church truly is a cornerstone of life in Hattiesburg.


The people of Hattiesburg treat you like a neighbor. This is never more evident than in the wake of disaster. Following the tornado of February 10, so many members of the community came together to help people they never met take those first steps back to normal. That is just the way things are in the “Burg”. Oh yea… I can’t forget… Ike Godsey’s Store – well Hickman’s and Kress Department Store might be a thing of the past …and the Mom and Pop curb stores of our youth might not be exactly what they once were… but the children have their hang-outs and gentlemen still get together for coffee and conversation. So as far as achieving that goal of a “Waltons-like” environment for our daughter to grow up in…Hattiesburg may not be Walton’s Mountain… but it is a pretty great place to raise a family.

Adam's Thoughts - March 2013

by Adam Watkins

We greet March with thankfulness! Given the “Mississippi Miracle” or “Hattiesburg Miracle” that our community experienced on February 10th, we can’t help but be thankful! As we consider the miles of damage created by the EF-4 tornado that traveled through Oak Grove, Hattiesburg, Petal, and surrounding areas, the more thankful we become. Personally, I’m awestruck at the simultaneous manifestation of God’s power and God’s protection. The fact that there were no casualties amidst utter devastation is quite a miracle indeed! Especially when you consider that the tornado glazed by Forrest General Hospital and over several churches (on a Sunday) as well as a university where students were largely out of town because of a holiday.


In fact, several of our team members were actually hosting nearly two dozen open houses that afternoon during our monthly Tour of Homes - all within the general path of the tornado. We had team members criss-crossing the area between tour locations as the tornado sliced through the community. There were a lot of phone calls and text messages made to assure everyone’s safety. We praise God for His protection, and we stand ready to serve our neighborhoods as we recover. We know we can do this because we’ve done it before. Our Katrina experience taught us a lot of lessons that we can apply here, and we intend to combine that experience with our resolve to forge ahead!


In spite of all these events, we see the beginnings of sustained improvements within our local real estate market. The first 50 days of this year are pointing to a trend of increased market activity. Year-over-year data from the Hattiesburg Multiple Listing Service (MLS) shows the number of homes under contract, homes sold, and sales volume to be up 54%, 6%, and 11% respectively. These increases are offset to some degree as our level of supply remains elevated, with a 1% increase in homes actively on the market over the same time period last year. Prices in most price ranges also appear to have stabilized. How long this trend will last depends on a multitude of factors, as you can imagine. These factors include long term interest rates, the financial impacts on employers of the new health care legislation, and the employment climate of the Hattiesburg Metro area. Regardless of these unknowns, we certainly welcome the improvements.


We do recognize, however, that to hundreds upon hundreds of our community members and families, market trends and market improvements are not nearly as important as putting the pieces of their lives back in place. These families are experiencing a tremendous sense of loss as they grapple with the destruction of their homes, businesses, and places of employment - and for some - as they recover from any injuries they sustained. It has been heart-warming to witness our churches and volunteer organizations sweep in and offer aid with efficiency and tremendous support. These volunteers are a part of what makes our area a special place to live. We’re dedicated to being a part of that support system. Almost immediately following the February 10th events, we began receiving phone calls and requests to assist those in need of housing - whether rental or purchase. We’ve even had some investors step in and purchase properties that are suitable for storm victims to lease as they begin to pick up the pieces of their lives. We can’t help but be inspired by these community helpers, and are honored to join them.


One of our client couples had a particularly touching reaction to these events - I’ll call them Jim and Jane. Jim and Jane have the benefit of life experience, having lived in their Hattiesburg home for many, many years. After the events of February 10th, they were faced with the overwhelming loss of their home, and the widespread devastation of their neighborhood. They needed a “new place” to start again, and we are grateful to have been able to help them find that new place. As they stepped out of the elevator on their way to leave our office, Jane said, “Well Jim, let’s go start the rest of our lives.” Her words weren’t filled with bitterness or resentment. Instead, they were filled with a sense of wonder and resolve. How inspiring and humbling! We have a tremendous responsibility to the Jims and Janes out there, and we are ready to fulfill that responsibility. Please don’t hesitate to call on our team. We are anxious to help you and/or your loved ones “start the rest of [your] lives” just like Jim and Jane.


Moving forward…


Adam & The Team

Life of Balance

by Jerron Carney

The New Year is in full swing, school is back in session, and the resolutions are at the top of our priority list. What is on your agenda for 2013 - Eating healthier, more exercise, losing weight, living on a budget?


It’s so easy to come out of the gate with much passion to conquer what we so desperately desire. But more often than not, when we give ourselves to something new and exciting, we forget some necessary ingredients to a balanced life. I have found this to be true in my own life. Trying to balance life between church, work, family & friends – I often find the pendulum leaning toward my hobbies and personal interests rather than the things that truly matter most in life. Life just seems to find a way to get out of balance.


Being new to the real estate industry, it has taken much time and energy to begin this new phase of my life. Rules, regulations, clients, new listings, closings, and the list continues to grow. While I am enjoying every second, I have been forced to guard against burnout and fatigue. The last time I checked, there are still 24 hours in a day. Too many times, in my own life, there are items not checked off at the end of the day; and it’s very easy to stress out when these responsibilities are not met. However, we must always remember to keep everything in balance. Balance is different for all us, but it’s of utmost importance that we each find our own, and stick with it. Time is precious – Do not take it for granted. It’s a lot like land, they are not making any more of it.


To put this all in perspective, I’m reminded of what a wise old gentlemen once told me, “Son, keep the main thing the main thing.” In other words, set your priorities and keep it all in balance.

Staying on Our Toes in 2013!

by DeLois Smith

Over the course of my 40 year real estate career right here in The Pine Belt, I have learned that we need to continually ask ourselves: What can we do better? In the wake of a less-than-stellar-period for us – ’09, ’10, ’11, and ’12 – we cannot rest on our laurels, even though we can see some signs of improvement locally, as well as nationally. The market is changing; our customers and clients are changing; and we, too, need to be refining and retooling.


Currently, two members of our support team, Jennifer Beightol and Andrew Bird, client care and listing specialist, are giving up their weekends to participate in a locally offered real estate licensing class in order to improve their services to our clients.


Elizabeth Liggett, our team closing coordinator, continues to lead in offering All Star Access in early February. All Star Access is a custom built, online communications system for our clients. This system provides buyers and sellers a 24/7 online system to access their transaction progress.


Adam Watkins is closing in on the last six months of his MBA at Tulane while starting January 2013 off with $1.3 million in production – quite an amazing feat.


Buyer Specialist, Wendy Gay, has made an impressive business plan for her clients for 2013. Wendy is enthusiastically following her plan daily with the professional assistance of a brilliant national real estate trainer, Brian Buffini. We can’t wait to see the results of Wendy’s strategic focus.


Congratulations to Buyer Specialist, Linda Seifert, for producing the highest single residential sale in the City of Hattiesburg, the 2nd highest in the area market for this January.


It’s been a while since we’ve been able to kick off a new year on an optimistic note, but 2013 stands to be a year for housing where the positives finally outweigh the negative. Of course, the jury is still out on the fiscal cliff along with potential housing policy changes. Despite the policy and economic changes we may face this year, here are my predictions that will most impact our local housing market in the coming months:


• Inventory Reductions
• Local investor confidence
• Return of move-up buyers
• Growing international consumer base
• Increase in new home construction


Two more predictions I really want to include, but do not yet see: 1.) Increasing activity in the high-end of the market, and 2.) Rising home values. We can put these on the “hopeful list”, maybe the 2nd quarter will provide more evidence.


For any of you who have a need to buy up or down because of family need changes or have a family member who needs a home or you could benefit from a single or multi-family investment, RIGHT NOW is the time to buy. Do not wait for rates to rise and investing to decrease!


Our team has loved the opportunity to serve 38 successful buyers or seller transactions this January with $6.5 million in volume. The diversity in age was from early 20’s-80’s. We have recently served families from China, India, Russia, Taiwan, S. Carolina, Texas, Louisiana, California, New York, Florida, Arkansas, Missouri, and Mississippians.


Thanks for your many kind and generous notes and comments about our team service to you and your family and friends. You warm our hearts and encourage us daily. AND WE PLEDGE to you that we will focus on “Staying on Our Toes” in 2013 to continue to add value to you and your family.


Gratefully your Realtors,


Delois & Team

Meet Debra

by Debra Pace

Hello, or as we say in Texas….Howdy! I am Debra K. Pace, the new kid with The All Star Team. I would describe myself as a hard working country girl who is down to earth and approachable by everyone. I left a great career with The Federal Bureau of Prisons to follow my husband to Hattiesburg.

At the Bureau, you were considered to be Federal Law Enforcement with a mandatory retirement at 57! YES, I walked away from that wonderful benefit for the love of my husband! There was not a facility close by for me to transfer to, so it forced me to step out of my comfort zone. In Bryan/College Station, Texas, I had met a Realtor named Cherry Ruffino who had a very motivating story of working her way out of a Safeway Cashier job to the largest producing Real Estate Agent in that area. I remember telling my friend Nancy Jo that I wanted to do that. Although she encouraged me, there was no way I could walk away from a solid career for such an uncertain sales job. Shortly after moving to Hattiesburg, Sharon Register hired me as her Assistant. After a few months, I could see that I could go out on my own and took the leap of faith. I was an Independent agent with Realty Executives for four years, surrounded by great people. I’ll talk more about my decision to move later, but for now, let me introduce my family.


My husband is Alan Pace, we have been married since 1985, and I love him to the moon and back. We both grew up in Nacogdoches, Texas, attending the same school. His grandfather was one of the first chicken growers in the area and his dad followed in his footsteps, they always told Alan to get on the other side of the desk, not to be a chicken grower. He came home one day to say he joined the Army and of course, his first duty station was in Schweinfurt Germany. After 5 years, he realized that furthering his education would enable him to provide for his family more than the Army. He obtained his Bachelor’s Degree from Stephen F. Austin, then onto University of Arkansas for his Master’s Degree course work. He began his poultry career with Sanderson Farms and worked for them for 14 years. He is now with Tyson Foods with the same position, but unfortunately, it took him to North Carolina. Our motto is “we will do what we have to do to get our kids out of college debt free”. Seeing my husband every two weeks is not what I had envisioned for myself at this age, but hopefully the kids will appreciate it one day. God blessed us with two wonderful children who are transitioning to the adult world as we speak.


Kaleb Pace is known as a humble and great guy. He graduated this year from USM. Some of you may know him from Anatomies Fitness Center; he has worked there for six years, currently the Director of the Youth Center. I love going places with him to watch kids run up to him for big hugs in stores or restaurants. He doesn’t realize it, but I think his calling is to be a Youth Minister or something kid related. I’m looking forward for him to be out on his own to gain that independence.


Our beautiful daughter is Lauren Pace, and she is currently a junior at USM, and I say currently a junior, because it seems that she changes her major every semester. The kids put too much pressure on themselves, thinking they have to have a career path right now. I feel they should concentrate on enjoying the college experience and know the career path will come later and probably change a few times. If Lauren had it her way, she would be a Socialite. A few months ago, she was hired by Mugshots as a waitress and she absolutely loves it because she gets to meet so many people. She is the girl that is full of life on campus, loving her sorority sisters at Chi Omega with all of her heart, and all the new friends that she has met along the way. We are so proud of both of our children.


Now that you have met my family, you may be yawning by now because we do not live an exciting lifestyle. Let me close by saying that I am so thankful to Adam and Delois for not giving up on me for the past couple of years and for believing in my abilities to contribute to her incredible team. We have talked about me joining them for awhile, but I was so intimidated by their success, I was afraid that I would not fit in, and worried what my peers would think. I made the decision to join them right before the National Realtors Convention held in November, and when I left them in Orlando to drive home by myself; I had the clarity that I had been praying for. All of their clients and all of our peers need to know that behind the hustle and bustle of the business scene, they really are like family. They put God first, always starting the meetings with prayer request and giving HIM the praise that only HE is worthy of receiving. They run a well-oiled machine; each person has their place in the mechanics of making this model work. They make me want to be a better person and better agent. I do not regret making the move to this team; my only regret is not doing it sooner.


My clients need to know that I will still provide the same great service they are accustomed to receiving from me, and any new clients that I receive need to be prepared to be blown away by my attention to their needs, and work ethic. My close clients refer to me as “passionate about this business”, so call me, let’s buy or sell something together!

Adam's Thoughts - January 2013

by Adam Watkins

Well, another Christmas and New Year’s Day is in the books! We hope your celebrations were filled with happiness and enriched with new memories. Our family enjoyed the additions of several little ones that enjoyed their first celebrations with us. This is a special time in our family, and we’re doing our best to build special traditions and experiences for these new souls. We feel more blessed than ever, even if we are a bit weary. Simultaneously, we think of those who, for the first time, experienced this season without a loved one(s). Most of us have experienced such a loss, and cherish those memories that we were able make. May God bless your home and family in 2013!


Your All Star Team spent much of 2012 growing to meet the demands of our present market. We’ve solidified our support staff team to handle client care, marketing, and closing and listing management with increased expertise. And, we’ve also grown our agent base to better serve our growing clients as well as niche markets that we’re developing and exploring.


Jerron Carney has joined our team specializing in Marion County properties. As a Marion County native, he’s deeply connected to the area through his work as Associate Pastor of Woodlawn Church. Jerron’s wife, Holly, teaches nursing at PRCC, and they have two children. Please keep our team and Jerron in mind the next time you or someone you know has a property in Marion County to sell or purchase.


As Hattiesburg has grown westward, the movement between Columbia and West Hattiesburg has increased. We can now offer our clients in-depth knowledge of the Marion County community with the addition of Jerron.
Another exciting addition occurred in December when Debra Pace joined our ranks. Debra has developed a proven track record in Greater Hattiesburg real estate since beginning her career here several years ago. Over the years, we’ve had dozens of opportunities to work with Debra as a co-op agent and have felt for some time that she would be an excellent addition to our agent team. Debra joined us in November at the National Association of REALTORS Convention in Orlando where she received additional training and the opportunity to enjoy our team culture. She officially began working as a team member the first of December and will be representing both sellers and buyers on a full-time basis. Her husband, Allen, works in the poultry industry, and they have two Golden Eagles – a son who’s recently graduated and a daughter who is currently a student at USM. Debra is one of our contributors to this month’s Star Chat. I hope you’ll check out her entry to this month’s edition.


So together, our team greets 2013 with as much enthusiasm as we can remember. We’re committed to serving you and anyone you know through the best service and marketing plan delivered by the best equipped and prepared team members available. We’re never too busy for your referrals, so please call us, find us online on Facebook and Twitter, or stop us in the grocery store. We’re eager to serve and thankful for your trust!


May 2013 be the best year yet!
