    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??

      Calm Before the Storm ?

      November 2018 – San Diego Real Estate Update

      As we settle down into the final weeks of 2018, we can see a period of relative calm ahead for our local housing market. Long gone are the consumer cries for housing bubbles as we have turned the corner into a trend of market balance to wrap up this year.
       
      While prices are still rising in most areas, the number of homes for sale are still low however there is a general shrinking in the percentage gaps for year-over-year comparisons in sales, inventory and prices for San Diego county. This is exceptional news for not only our local real estate market, but our nation’s economy and a promising start to 2019.
       

      While our stock markets experienced an October setback, that does not necessarily translate to a decline in the real estate market. Actually, our national unemployment rate has been below 4.0 percent for three straight months and during five of the last six months. This is exceptional news for  real estate. Meanwhile, home-builder confidence remains positive, home-ownership rates have increased in the key under-35 buyer group and prices, though still rising, have tapered their incline to more healthy margins. All-in-all, a look at today’s housing market doesn’t forecast an imminent housing crash as many consumers fear, but instead shows a hopeful future.

      Here’s what we’re seeing this month:

          Market Watch: Is ‘Big Change‘ on the Horizon??

          Scary times ahead? Well, I suppose ‘tis the season after all… Buckle up, San Diego! Reports are officially in and after months of careful watch, economy observes predict our local housing market is indeed headed for a ‘Big Change’ by the end of 2018.

          Have I scared you yet?? Don’t be… while it may be the season for scares and Hollywood horror – let’s keep Halloween out of our housing market update, sound good?  So here’s what they mean when they talk about this intimidating ‘Big Change’… first off, let me just say that overall, this is going to be a good thing!

          As we head into the holiday season, our market is holding significantly more inventory than this time last year (21.9% more, to be exact). While our market has experienced a slight shift and slowdown in price increases over these last few months, this coupled with a healthier market supply of homes for sale has created more stable conditions for our San Diego real estate market. All this means is that today’s market has more sellers finally taking advantage of these record-breaking home prices and that creates more options for buyers, less pressure and more power finally allocated back to buyers. This shift was a welcomed relief for buyers and economists alike, and while rumors of a  ‘housing bubble’ could be heard everywhere, luckily our readers knew that this shifting relief was indeed on the horizon.

          So here is what’s coming – current conditions will maintain our housing market in a positive (though moderate, ‘healthier’) incline for these last few months of 2018. Our buyer demand for San Diego county consistently maintains remarkable strength (duh! honestly, who doesn’t want to live here??) – however in consideration of rising home prices, interest rates, and the holiday ‘slowdown’ season around the corner, economists and real estate professionals alike will continue to keep a weather eye on the horizon for any further changes to our market.  

          [ Editor’s Note: Despite this general market trend assessment, we are still seeing pockets of home sales occurring with very low days on market and unusually high sales prices across San Diego county – these recent sales remain statistical outliers, but continue to occur month-by-month on county housing reports despite recent market shifts.]

          Here’s what numbers we’re seeing from this month:

           

          Buyers Advice: 
          The best advice Finally, some options!!! Not only do you have more options today than you have had available in YEARS… now you also have this general holiday ‘slowdown’ on your side as a buyer right now. What this means for you is less competition in the market, more options available and when you do find you dream home, you have more potential buying power as well! This could be a great time to get out there and get a phenomenal deal!!!

              September 2018: San Diego Real Estate Update

              Mind the Gap [in Affordability!]

              We’ve been watching all market factors very closely – with all factors in consideration, we determine there to be a plateau in our market today.  Watch quick video here:

              The main reason is e assess that is really the affordability aspect, in particular the national income level. Over the last year, household income only rose about 2.8% annually. Now we this we’ve had rising housing prices, interest rates up AND building costs increase.. these rising costs on a national level have far outpaced our income averages. What does this mean?

              Well this is what many refer to as the ‘gap’ in affordability. Now here we have hit that ceiling on national average levels of affordability. 

               

              Here’s the stats we are looking at:

              Buyer Advice:

              Finally, there are options!! Actually a great time to be a buyer.  Remember last year, there was so much competition you LITERALLY had no options.. look at the market today, you appreciate how much more opportunity awaits for buyers today!

              Start your search Today!

              Seller Advice:

              For sellers, what it comes down to is pricing to the current market, preparing the property and marketing properly in order to be that ‘next-to-sell’ home. There are still homes selling fast & for record breaking prices – does your home have what it takes?

                2018: Happy, Healthy… Homeowners!

                 

                As we’re reaching those final dog days of summer here, while the weather reports heat waves and perfect beach days..our housing market has actually shifted into cooldown already. The rumors are true, folks – the shift has happened! Remember, this is a GOOD thing.  For all those crying, “housing bubble!” we see you.. That was soooo 2007, stop it. We have actually entered into a “healthy” market – economists agree, our market conditions have set the stage for stability moving forward.

                What we’re seeing in our market now is about a 2.2 month supply of homes, this is extremely low compared to the rest of the US; however, we expect for that number to increase to around 3 to 3.5 months here soon. This will allow buyers to take their time and not be forced into jumping into the first property that comes on the market… Finally, right?? If you’re interested in becoming a homeowner and making the American Dream your own, now might be your time to pull the trigger and find your dream home!

                Here’s what we’re seeing now:

                Closed Sales decreased 9.5%. Pending Sales decreased 1.9%. Inventory increased 9.4%. The Median Price was up 6.8% to $657,000 for Detached properties and 6.7% to $432,000 for Attached properties. Days on Market increased 8%.

                 

                All-in-all, we are looking at a promising future on the horizon for our local housing market. Consumer spending on home goods and renovations are up, and more people are entering the workforce. Employed people spending money is good for the housing market. Meanwhile, GDP growth was 4.1% in the second quarter, the strongest showing since 2014. Housing starts are down, but that is more reflective of low supply than anything else. With a growing economy, solid lending practices and the potential for improved inventory from new listing and building activity, market balance is more likely than a bubble.

                 

                Buyers Advice: 

                Buyers, you are now able to be a little more picky than buyers last year.. so you can be more patient, take your time for the right home to come along and really find that “dream home” you’ve been waiting for. Now, we’re not talking major price cuts here… as we said, it’s a healthy market not a housing crash – San Diego Is one of the most desirable places to live in America, so keep your expectations reasonable. Now’s the time to figure out what you really want and hire that Realtor who will work with you, pound the pavement and find that dream home! 

                Sellers Advice: ​​​​​​​

                The best advice I can you right now is this: make sure you will be, what I call the ‘Next-to-Sell-Home”. What I mean by that is that you have to win on all fronts when compared to your competition. Your home either has to be in the same or better condition than the rest, at either the same or better price. Certain factors help set up sellers for success, we’d be happy to walk you through the process.

                  The Secret’s in the Sale

                  We certainly have some interesting times seen in our local markets here in San Diego County. What we’re seeing is an odd disconnect between what’s recorded in our monthly housing stat report and what we real estate professionals are seeing on the ground, working day-to-day in our local market. We dove deep into this month’s market report to find the secret to this mystery – here’s what we found…

                  First statistic I’d like to bring attention to is our closed sales this month is DOWN 15% compared to last year .. that’s a significant drop! Now, sales are down.. and the number of homes for sale is actually UP! So we have less homes closed, but more inventory. Now usually this results in prices going down.. however, instead we actually have a 6.3% increase in value (home prices) in closed sales from this month.

                  Scratching your head over that one? Yup, we did too.. but we dove deep and here’s what we found:

                  We see that yes, we have more inventory, however we’re seeing more homes coming on market that aren’t showing well and are overpriced .. So what we have are these homeowners who see the housing market doing great, so they say, “hey, market’s great – let’s go ahead and list our property.. let’s sell our home”.. But they’re not taking the proper steps to sell their homes for the best results – their homes aren’t being prepped for market properly. These listings aren’t showing well. Some homes aren’t priced at fair market value either – they’re overpriced, they’re not showing well… so naturally, we’re seeing this population of listings sit longer on market.

                  Then in contrast, we’re seeing the sellers ( “smart sellers” ) who are taking into account the condition of their property, making it look good …they’re hiring professional realtors to help prep their homes properly for market, having them come in and help prep, PRICE and market their home properly. Sure enough, these sellers are having more success with their homes on market than these other poorly prepped, overpriced homes – more closings & quicker sales with these “smart seller” listings. So despite more inventory, not all listings are equal.. however those “smartly” listed are selling with more success & faster, resulting in our increase in home prices seen still in San Diego county.

                  Here’s the stats from this month:

                  Buyers Advice: 

                  So on the BUY side, BE CAREFUL. Make sure you do your proper research!
                  Even if there’s no comps in the neighborhood, make sure you have your realtor to run comps for those homes you’re interested in. You want to make sure these homes are actually priced at fair market value, and seeing as several homes on market today are overpriced, make sure your realtor helps determine if in fact you are getting a fair price when you buy your new home.

                  Contact us today!

                  Sellers Advice: ​​​​​​​

                  On the SELL side, take the time to meet with your realtor – make sure your listing agent really works to sell your home properly. Have them really guide you through this process – have them tell you what you need to do for staging, painting, PRICE..and then the proper marketing plan for your home sale. Note: we ARE still seeing a high demand for these types homes on market – sellers: if you prepare your home for market, you WILL be able to sell with great success! Maybe sell for more than your neighbor did, or get a great listing agent and you could even max out what your neighborhood can sell for.. the secret’s in the sale!

                    What Just Happened to our Market??!

                    The market just got hot again.. WHAT??? Now, the market getting hot is by no means out of norm for us here in San Diego.. however HOW it happened certainly is odd!

                    We saw a relatively slow market start to emerge over the last couple months (slow by our standards, that is), but then lo and behold, summer is here and we are coming into a HOT summer selling season! Historically, this time of year does tend to see an activity increase across the country, but we’re talking about the slight cool down that happened for just a blink of an eye here. 

                    I believe the reason this happened is not just due to it being summer time, kids are out of school and people are getting freed to make a move.. but also I believe this to be in part due to the steady rising interest rates. On June 13th, the Fed raised rates 0.25%; this increase is primarily impacting those currently holding or purchasing with short term loans (such as ARM’s or Interest Only loans). I think this rate increase has been a push for buyers to hop off that fence and buy now versus waiting while the Fed delivers on their promise with raising interest rates close to 6% in our near future.

                    Here are the numbers we are seeing for this month…

                    Buyers Advice: 

                    As you already read in the article above, NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY! You know what type of market we’re in, what factors are on a clock.. so if you do want to purchase a new home in San Diego, any Realtor or Mortgage lender can express the same degree of importance to low interest rates. My advice to you is this – make this a real conversation for yourselves. If you are comfortable with the payment and can see yourself in that house for 5 years.. BUY NOW! Want to talk to a great mortgage lender about getting pre-approved?

                    Sellers Advice: ​​​​​​​

                    Don’t fall victim to thinking this market is SO hot you don’t need to prepare your home properly – I am seeing far too many homes hit the market that have not been staged, are unclean and have low quality pictures and marketing. Trust me, this will result in a huge chunk taken out from your net proceeds.. don’t start your selling process at such a costly disadvantage. Let us guide you through this process and insure that you WILL get top dollar for your home!
