Spring is Here! San Diego is Blooming… 

And the Housing Market is BOOMING!!!

It’s finally Spring in San Diego! I don’t know about you, but this change has me saying “Hallelujah!” …With our days already longer, beach weather just around the corner & seeing all these beautiful flower fields here coming into full bloom… what’s not to love??

Unfortunately that question isn’t a rhetorical one to local real estate professionals here…

While living in San Diego has its many obvious perks, our housing market is still a bit of a problem patch… and concerns are mounting as we see this problem starting to grow like a weed…

The general consensus is set to the same broken record you’ve been hearing here month after month… low inventory, fewer home sales and home prices still in a steady climb… Nothing new there. Now as we turn the corner on winter and spring into warmer months here in San Diego, it’s easy to see why everyone wants to live here… unfortunately the housing demand for our area is higher than the national average, so you can follow the dominoes to see how the growing gap between buyers and homes available brings us into more competitive buying conditions with more aggressive bidding, and thus higher sales being recorded in recent closed sales. We are still seeing this correlated market change continue across all of San Diego county.

It’s no secret that in any sellers’ market, home buyers get the short end of the stick.. and with mortgage rates now starting to rise as well, now more than ever this ‘hot’ sellers market seems to be really stoking the fire under buyers to hurry and buy now.. before it’s too late!

According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, the average rate for a 30-year fixed with 20% down payment is up to 4.5-4.6% (highest since 2014). While this isn’t any cause for worry to all those experienced and savvy in real estate, this rise brings quite a significant hurdle in terms of affordability for many potential first-time home buyers. With both factors now in play as we round the corner into spring and our “home buying season”, we believe we will soon see a more stable market here soon.

Basically, this ‘hot’ sellers’ market that has been stoking the fire under home buyers will likely cool to a simmer here soon. 

Here’s the stats we are seeing from last month:
Buyers Advice: 
 
While the stats may sound a bit discouraging for buyers, especially first-time buyers looking now… Remember: “We Got This”! It’s a competitive market for buyers now, yes..but it’s just like anything else. If you learn the game, practice and play to win, then when game day rolls around, you’re sure to bring your A-game! (..and if you also have an All-Star team ready to bat for you, who wouldn’t bet on you to win??
 
But in all seriousness, we are about to roll into spring “home-buying” market here and already starting to see an uptick in homes for sale (meaning more opportunities & more options for you to buy)!

Sellers Advice: 
 
Yes, a lot of homes are selling fast, however we are still seeing poorly prepped homes sit on the market with horrible marketing efforts usually causing them to sell for much less than they should have. We see so many sellers drawn to these discount brokers or flat-fee services [*cough* Redfin *cough*]… unfortunately with discount fees comes cut-corners, confusing unpersonalized service and all the hassles of sitting on the market for much longer periods of time.. that means constantly maintaining a ‘show ready’ home, having to leave at a moments notice for constant showings… and if the home finally does sell, you have rookie agents you’ve never met doing the negotiating on your behalf…in a nutshell, homes are selling for much less than should with discount selling services.

      It’s a New Year, New You!

      … & a New Housing Market, too??

       
      For the entirety of 2017, we were starting to feel like a broken record here…”Housing supply low.. Home values rising..” month after month.
       
      It’s no news to our readers here that the supply numbers across San Diego have been consistently low compared to years past, but FINALLY we experts agree that there could be a new story change coming soon to this tired market report. With housing prices consistently up across all markets, we should see more confident sellers bring up the listing activity in 2018. Also with this new tax reform, home purchasers will only be allowed to write off the interest paid o a loan up to $750,000 compared to the previous $1M. This could bring a slight decline in buyer activity this year for the higher end homes or investment buyers.

       
      Here are those nitty gritty numbers to back that up:
       

      Bottom line, all signs point to a brighter, more stable market coming soon to San Diego. Onwards ‘n’ upwards, folks! 

       
      Buyers Advice: 
      The holidays can often bring on a ‘market slow-down’ – this supply dip can discourage buyers when there are fewer new listings to be seen hitting the market. But remember, it’s only temporary! After all gets back in full swing, we tend to see inventory levels pick up again.. and now in week 3 of January 2018, sure enough it has! Local inventory has already gone up, and we will continue to see more homes and buying opportunities hit the market here soon.
       
      If you have been actively on the search for that perfect new place to buy… Don’t give up!! Keep at it – inventory numbers will rise and would be advantageous for you to get locked into a lower mortgage rate now rather than missing your chance! 
       

      **Pro Tip: For your best home buying results, contact an experienced agent and employ for your most knowledgable search resource and real estate advocate. 

       

       

      Sellers Advice: 
      It’s a new year! What does 2018 have in store for you? Be it a year destined for you to fill with adventure, self-improvement or success…you should consider selling your home!

That means we are honest advisors to advocate and explore our clients’ best interest. For that reason I find it my job to make all my local homeowners aware of this potential *gold strike* opportunity they could have in this present market..
       
      If you want to make this 2018 your best year yet, then I strongly urge you to pick up the phone. This sellers’ mark
      et has become like a perfect storm for optimal home-sale results here in San Diego – selling your home now could very well be your *golden ticket* to make 2018 a year for fulfilling your dreams!
