    Junk on the Market: It’s Spring Cleaning Time!

    Yes you have heard us over the last 5 months sounding like a broken record talking about how inventory levels are up and buyer activity is down… however that is quickly changing! We have seen buyers activity skyrocket in recent weeks which has made a huge impact on the amount of Quality homes on the market.

    What is this from??? Interest rates! Thanks to promises kept by The Federal Reserve, we’ve had low interest rates starting in January 2019 and they’ve stayed down in the low 4’s… yes you heard me right, interest rates right now are at 4.13%. What us Real Estate professionals know is that a lower interest rate is sometimes more important than a lower purchase price!

    Now lets talk about what is happening with inventory… We do have higher inventory levels due to the build up that happened during the last quarter of 2018 and the start of 2019. Perhaps due to skeptical buyers, probably due to rising interest rates… However from our (Boots on the ground) prospective, what really happened was San Diego homeowners rushed to put their homes on the market and threw a high price tag on it just to see if they could get it. What that means now is, quite frankly, we’re seeing some “junk” sitting on the market and inflating our inventory levels. However please rest assured… we still have extremely high demand from buyers right now… however that demand is for quality properties that show well,  are priced right, and are marketed properly!

    As spring and summer months are notorious for hot sales markets, we can expect a rising buyer demand these upcoming weeks and if sellers tend to their listing like their wallets depend on it, we can predict a lot of this inventory to produce sales contracts soon across San Diego county.

    Buyers Advice:  This is an opportune time for buyers to hit the market – take advantage of more inventory selection, less competition, more buying power & better chances in finding your perfect home (and potentially negotiate for a great deal, too)! Looking to Buy Your New Home in 2019 or 2020 ?  Click to Start Your Home Search Today!

    Sellers Advice:  We’ve been finding many buyers lately who are out there actively searching these days seem to be primarily interested in buying homes that already look nice inside & out – Buyers are consistently searching for only these “Turn-Key” homes. However the majority of the homes on the market right now are NOT in the best of condition. We recommend folks put some money into their home to upgrade, renovate or repair (ONLY if cost to improve will serve to increase home’s assessed value, etc.) If you plan to offer your property as a buyers’ “Move-in Ready” or Turn-Key product, make sure you assess your overall presentation – buyers are getting picky these days so you want to stand out; look fresh, clean & tidy as best you can before listing.

      The Buyers Go Marching One by One… Hurrah Hurrah

      Last month we saw an impressively cold, rainy and even heaps of snow for the majority of the other housing markets across the nation. Even our So.Cal coastline was no exception as we faced weeks of frigid rain and braved the cold alongside the rest of America. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that the San Diego housing market has proven to be resilient despite predictions of a tougher year for the industry.

      The Buyers Go Marching Two by Two… Hurrah Hurrah

      It is still too early to say how the entire year will play out, – the overall condition remains fundamentally positive. Buyers have shown great determination toward achieving their homeownership goals.

      The Buyers Go Marching Three by Three… The First-Timers Stop if Rates Rising…

      While inventory is up for the sixth consecutive month, closed sales are actually down 14.8% with median sales price up only 2.8% since last year.  This emerging trend to moderation comes after years of price climbs and rising interest rates – though supply is finally on this rise, we are faced with the affordability dilemma as the number of buyers actually able to afford these homes is slowly declining. Though we did see buyers rushing back and ready to buy at the start of 2019. The total number of signed contracts jumped a shocking 4.6% between the end of last year and February 2019, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

      And They All Go Marching Down.. To Buy A House.. To Get Out of the Rain… Sales BOOM!

      Most will point squarely to the drop in mortgage rates that occurred in December 2018 as a cause for this rebound and jump in buyer demand. Going forward, it is unlikely we will see such dramatic spikes like this one as supply levels are gaining – (still at about 3.5 months worth versus 6 months needed to be considered a balanced market). Income growth is stronger this year, but again we see the headwind issue as a large share of buyers are still on the edge of being able to afford a home.

      Here’s what stats we saw last month:

      So all-in-all, what does this mean for our San Diego housing market? Here’s what we see ahead – We can anticipate the spring housing market will see some signs of a rebound, but it will be slower than expectations compared to years prior. Due to affordability concerns with a large portion of the buyer pool, we can expect to see a disconnect between homebuyer demand and a slightly slower market this spring. Though supply is higher than it’s been in years, we lack entry-level homes and home builders have continued to focus instead on the move-up market. These structural headwinds will be a condition of our local and national housing markets for the rest of this year, and likely remain as a hot topic of economic concern for years ahead.

      Buyers Advice:

      As you may have picked up from this month’s market update, there are many recent buyer trends that seem to have clear cause-and-effect patterns – in the recent wake of growing affordability gaps, buyers are becoming increasingly sensitive and/or responsive to the ups & downs of F.ED. interest rates That said, they just lowered rates again to just under 4.4% in February.. *cue buying frenzy!* This is an opportune time for buyers to hit the softened market & make the most of this “pre-season” / calm before the home-buying storm! Take advantage of more inventory selection, less competition, more buying power & better chances in finding your perfect home (and potentially negotiate for a great deal, too!)

          Rain Boots on the Ground

          Whew, nothing like a chilly month of rain to make you eager for Spring! After weeks of winter chills, it’s no coincidence that our housing market has likewise cooled down. Will warmer days give way to warmer housing markets??

          Despite a strong US economy with historically low unemployment and steady wage growth, home sales began to slow across the nation end of last year. Analysts blamed a combination of high prices and the steady stream of interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve.

          The Federal Reserve responded last month to this growing affordability conundrum with a new approach to further rate changes. The Fed has so far maintained its promised move to new ‘Patient Approach’ – this is a step in the right direction; The Fed has not increased rates in 2019.

          Market Stats for this Month: Closed Sales -13.3% for Detached and -26.2% for Attached homes. Inventory levels +28.3% for Detached and +45.2% for Attached. Median Sales Prices for Detached were +3.4% to $615,000 and +2.5% to $415,000 for Attached. Supply +41.2% for Detached, +61.5 % for Attached.

          While the home affordability topic will continue to set the tone for the 2019 housing market, early signs point to an improving inventory situation, including in several markets that are beginning to show regular year-over-year percentage increases. As motivated sellers attempt to get a jump on annual goals, many new listings enter the market immediately after the turn of a calendar year. If home price appreciation falls more in line with wage growth, and rates can hold firm, consumer confidence and affordability are likely to improve.

          From your boots on the ground market report – Spring buying frenzy seems to be just around the corner; we are seeing buyer activity already start to improve over last weeks of February. As many buyers return to their search after months of hiatus during ‘market slowdown’, it’s promising to see this shift in mentality throughout several in the buyer pool. With Spring around the corner and sunny days back in the forecast, we can expect we to see a return of eager buyers into our warming housing market in full force within the next few weeks..

          Buyers Advice: Did you know that with most buyers loans you can ask the seller to pay up to 6% of the purchase price to go towards remodeling costs?? And yes, that includes VA loans as well! So… what strategy do we implement here? How about you see a home that needs new carpet and paint… ask for a credit. Want to redo the kitchen? ask for a credit. With these seller credit options available, your buying opportunities can expand and gives you chance to make changes needed to call your new house your home.

          Sellers Advice: The market has shifted and we have more inventory than we have had in 5 years which  means more competition. However the majority of the homes on the market right now are NOT in the best of condition. If you want to stand out, make sure to make your home as nice as possible before listing.

              New Year, New You.. New Market, too!?

              Anyone else feeling whiplash from watching the stock market last month??

              For those of you who missed the excitement – the Federal Reserve issued a fourth interest rate hike to close out 2018. Unfortunately this spooked the stock market into a terrifying roller-coaster ride that left many feeling whiplash in their wallets.

              The Fed has since indicated that the number of rate increases will be halved in 2019 – while this new year’s resolution is a hopeful start, it may be of little comfort to an already compressed consumer. Change is happening, but is it enough to tackle the growing affordability issue? Here’s what’s ahead for San Diego real estate in 2019..

              Unemployment rates are at record lows & wages continue to improve for many households across the country, which is generally a good sing. However, as wages gradually increase so do average home prices AND the rate of increase for homes is drastically outpacing wage increases. This condition is what created an affordability crux in the second half of 2018.

              Last year, home prices were consistently up again but at reduced levels compared to years prior. Median Sales Price this month was up 2.5%  for Detached homes and 3.5% for Attached – compared to last year with 5.7% and 8.1% increases. We saw inventory increase 29.6% for Detached homes and 55.9% for Attached homes.

              Mounting evidence says we will continue to maintain these higher inventory levels across SD county. This is a step in the right direction for alleviating affordability gaps – however we still have quite a distance to cover – Housing affordability will remain an important storyline in 2019. Here’s the stats for this month:

              Buyers Advice:

Fewer buyers & more homes means better chance for you to find your dream home.. and possibly for a great deal too!

                    Have the Scales Tipped?!

                    As we settle down into the final weeks of 2018, the belief that we have overheated markets has since changed – some may say we might even be approaching a buyers market soon.
                    Do San Diegan homeowners have cause to fear this? Experts agree we are in indeed seeing a shift, but it’s not what you might think. 

                    What does 2019 have in store for San Diego housing market? 

                    The home market is becoming more balanced among buyers and sellers. There are already signs that the market is beginning to swing towards buyers – inventory is finally up after almost four years of uninterrupted declines, especially in formerly ‘red-hot’ markets like the west coast. There’s more inventory, more buyer caution, therefore price cuts are becoming more frequent.

                    So what’s the forecast for next year? Home sales volume in the years following 2018 are expected to be more of the same. Higher interest rates and economic uncertainty will hold back sales volume next year, however in San Diego county, our market is ranked fifth in the nation for ‘hottest’ in-demand markets. We can expect a balance to emerge between buyers and sellers; signs are starting to show, but we’re still a long way off – we might predict a buyers market on the horizon, but not in 2019.

                    Here’s what we’re seeing now:

                    Buyers Advice: Are you one of the many saying now is not a good time to buy? While it may feel safe to be a sheep, here’s why you’re wrong – currently the market has more sellers and not enough buyers.. this means you are in a PRIME buying position! Options and less competition. Just like our seasoned investors do every year, use this ‘slower’ season to your advantage and get out there… you could potentially land yourself a killer deal!
                    Start Your Home Search Today! 

                    Sellers Advice: Remember to keep things in perspective – yes, shifts are happening and there’s some more competition on market, but homes are STILL selling for record-high sales prices! If you are thinking of selling at some point, keep in mind timing is everything! Our housing market is headed for a stability shift, but right now prices are still increasing! If you have the right agent prepping and marketing your home to be that ‘next-to-sell’, you STILL have the opportunity to sell your housing investment for the highest possible return, ever! How much could you make??
