Tammy Mazzocco: A Realtor’s-eye View of the Ohio Housing Market
It’s been a banner year for the Ohio housing market – the busiest, in fact, since 2005. Throughout Ohio, home purchases were up 7.5% from 2015 while prices remained average. Even as temperatures dropped in December, sales of existing homes in Ohio remained up 2.8% over the year before which is substantial considering the fact that interest rates surged in early November. However, with record numbers of homes coming off the market, the shrinking pool of available properties has fueled concerns of price growth for the remaining listings.
Now realtors have their work cut out for them trying to find listings that fit their buyers’ preferences and budgets. Realtors like Tammy Mazzocco; who has witnessed the rise and fall and rise again of the Ohio housing market during the last 17 years as a residential real estate agent for Judy Gang & Associates in Pickerington, OH. Previously to joining Gang & Associates, Tammy Mazzoccoo served as a licensed personal assistant to RE/MAX agent, Joe Armeni, and before that Tammy spent nearly a decade in property management.
In a recent interview, Tammy Mazzocco shared insight into what makes the services she provides to her clients so special: “I treat my clients’ time and investment as I would my own. I don’t focus on the commission coming at the end of the deal…I stayed in the moment and focused on the deal and what is best for the client at all times.” Tammy Mazzoccoo gets some client leads from companies like Zillow and Realtor.com but admits that “repeat business and referrals make up about 85% of my business.”
In the current housing market, realtors like Tammy Mazzocco will be highly sought after. Svenja Gudell, a real estate data executive for Zillow, has stated that “At this point lackluster inventory remains the number one driver of sales and prices.” Based on numbers from December 2016, there is a 3.6-month supply of real estate nationally which means that the existing listings will sell out in less than 4 months. This indicates an unbalanced market with the scales tilting to the seller’s benefit. That makes finding a real estate agent who puts the client’s interests first extremely important.
