October San Diego Real Estate Update 2017

That’s it… I Need to Set the Record Straight…

We are NOT Facing Another Housing Bubble!!

 

Last week, our team and myself attended the annual National Real Estate Conference downtown where we were fortunate enough to be audience to a multitude of panels comprised of the best-of-the-best in all areas of real estate – many market issues were discussed but the topic brought up by all panelists from builder reps, to city councilmen, to economics professors surrounded this mounting nationwide concern of a potential market bubble.
 
Let’s set the record straight here… experts agree – the issue is not when the bubble will happen, but rather when will this inventory crisis end ?!
 
Let’s compare this year’s numbers to when we did experience the market crash in 2007 –  the calculated scales are currently tilted slightly in favor of buying vs. renting, versus the extreme opposite where 2007 pointed severely in favor of renting as the more affordable option (when considering renting costs vs. the current conventional loan offerings). Also in 2007, we were building in excess with 225,000 homes per year (in California), however despite today’s population having grown by 4 million, we are building under 80,000 homes per year. What shocks me here is how we are growing by nearly 400,000 people each year, yet only building 80,000 new homes..?! Something doesn’t add up here! 
 

Here’s what I’m talking about:

Buyers Advice: 
 
Don’t believe the hype around buying a fixer! Due to San Diego’s high demand for homes, our fixer-upper properties are not selling for that much less than the move-in ready homes. Most of the time, it is actually more affordable to buy a home already remodeled, rather than putting up the capital yourself after purchase. Also, it’s going to be easier for most San Diegans to increase your loan by $50K to buy that move-in ready home, versus a fixer and $70K+ paid out of pocket in order to do a similar remodel.
However, if you are still interested in a fixer, here’s a good place to start:
 
Sellers Advice: 
 
Hire a designer, not a stager! While staging usually does pay for itself and typically helps homes sell much faster, the typical seller in today’s market is still living in the home they wish to sell and it’s a designer they need, not a stager. We like to hire our interior designer to go through the home and create a list of things that should to be changed, all while using the clients furniture already in home to ‘stage’. This saves our clients money while still getting top dollar for their homes!
