If you currently own a home in Orange County or looking to make an investment this year, being clear on where the current Real Estate market is can make all the difference in your decisions.
Below is a summary of the current OC Housing Report…
 
Nope No Bubble
 
So many buyers and homeowners are mentally preparing for the next housing bubble to pop. Everybody knows somebody that was affected by the Great Recession when values dropped substantially, and countless homeowners lost their homes to foreclosures or short sales. With values surpassing record levels, isn’t housing a bubble again? Even though so many are anticipating another bubble, the answer is simple: NOPE.
The Great Recession prompted by the housing market where anyone could purchase a home regardless of their true qualifications. Zero down payments loans, fudged loan documents, negative ARM’s, cash out refinancing, and subprime lending contributed to the run-up in values that filled the housing bubble that ultimately burst in 2007. As a result, the housing market collapsed, and home values plummeted.
What does this mean for sellers?
 
The Expected Market Time has remained between 60-90 days, a slight Seller’s Market, one where there is not much appreciation and sellers get to call more of the shots during negotiations. Today, smack dab in the middle of the Autumn Market, it is at 86 days. and, for the rest of the year, do not expect it to change much.
As many sellers have seen, the number of showings are down, the number of deals are dropping and the holidays are inching closer. As a result, fewer homeowners will be opting to sell and many sellers will be throwing in the towel. Seller’s that stick it out and stay on the market, will have less competition.
What does this mean for buyers?
 
Many buyers are sitting on the sidelines in anticipation of a major housing turn-down even though the facts illustrate it simply is not going to happen. Today’s housing data illustrates a housing market that is on very strong footing. There is no bubble.
With interest rates STILL low, now is the time to BUY! It is important to note that due to the Great Recession, it is much more difficult to obtain financing today. Buyers must qualify for a loan and furnish paperwork that establishes their ability to make their monthly payments, there is no more “easy money”. As such, it is very important that you talk to a lender and get pre-qualified BEFORE beginning your search for your new home!
What about the Luxury Market?
 
The luxury market has continued to slow. For homes priced between $1.25 million and $1.5 million, in the past two-weeks, demand has dropped 5% and the Expected Market Time decreased from 121 to 118 days.

OC Housing Report: Payment Not Price

Posted 10/15/19

Information provided by Steven Thomas

We like to keep our clients updated on the CURRENT REAL ESTATE MARKET IN ORANGE COUNTY.  Our experience is vast with 60+ combined years in the Real Estate industry, WE ARE THE AREA EXPERTS!!!

If you currently own a home in Orange County or looking to make an investment this year, being clear on where the current Real Estate market is can make all the difference in your decisions.

Below is a summary of the current OC Housing Report…

Payment Not Price

When it comes to housing, everybody puts way too much emphasis on the price of the home when they should really be taking a closer look at the monthly payment.

What does this mean for buyers?

Many believe that home values are unaffordable and have reached a peak. That is what a lot of buyers are hoping for. That is simply not correct, home values have not yet peaked.

Many buyers are sitting on the sidelines and waiting…and waiting. They are trying to time the market. Yet, economists and prognosticators will attest that time markets is next to impossible. As a result, many capable buyers have been permanently sitting on the sidelines rather than cashing in on an excellent opportunity.

Housing is in a very good spot right now and it has everything to do with interest rates. In November of last year, the 30-year mortgage climbed all the way to 5%. Consequently, housing slowed to a crawl. But, since then rates have plummeted to 3.5%, that is down 30%.

In digging a little deeper, prior to the Great Recession, mortgage rates were at 6.35% in 2007. A $625,000 home with 20% down had a monthly payment of $3,111 back then. Today at 3.5%, the monthly mortgage payment is only $2,245, an $866 per month SAVINGS, or over $10,000 per year!

The current low interest rate environment is very good for housing and rates are not going to change much anytime soon!

So, the bottom line to buyers is do NOT wait on the sidelines! Instead, cash in on these incredible rates now! An important fact to remember buyers, is that you do NOT have to put 20% down to purchase a home. FHA financing allows buyers to buy a home with as little as 3.5% down!

What does this mean for sellers?

Since both supply and demand are falling at the same rate, in the past two-weeks the Expected Market Time remained unchanged at 86 days, a slight Seller’s Market (60-90 days), where home values do not change much and sellers get to call more of the shots during the negotiation process!

OC Housing Report: The Sky is NOT Falling

Posted 8/22/19

Information provided by Steven Thomas,

We like to keep our clients updated on the CURRENT REAL ESTATE MARKET IN ORANGE COUNTY.  Our experience is vast with 60+ combined years in the Real Estate industry, WE ARE THE AREA EXPERTS!!!

If you currently own a home in Orange County or looking to make an investment this year, being clear on where the current Real Estate market is can make all the difference in your decisions.

Below is a summary of the current OC Housing Report…

The Sky is NOT Falling

The underlying housing fundamentals have stabilized significantly compared to last year’s slide. Buyer demand may not be as hot as prior years, but the Housing market is not collapsing either. For buyers or sellers wondering, there will be no surprises on the housing front any time soon. Last year, major cracks in the housing market emerged. Orange County housing has improved dramatically since all the cracks of last year, BUT that does NOT mean that the market is back on track and will rapidly appreciate like it did before.

What does this mean for sellers?

In the past two weeks, the active listing inventory dropped by 1% and it looks as if the housing peak as already occurred and will slowly drop from here. In the coming weeks ahead, the market will be transitioning to the Autumn Market when fewer homes come on the market and demand begins to dip. Although in the past two weeks demand (the number of new pending sales) increased by 4 %, it will slowly decline for the remainder of the year, picking up steam during the holidays when fewer homes come on the market and many unsuccessful sellers pull their homes off the market. Today it is a Slight Seller’s Market as the Overall Expected Market Time (the time it would take for a home that comes on the market today to enter escrow down the road) decreased from 91 days to 86 days in the past two weeks. But seller’s expectations need to be adjusted. The market is not as hot as before. Property values are not skyrocketing. But, in this Slight Seller’s Market, sellers get to call more of the shots during negotiations.

What does this mean for buyers?

The drop-in interest rates, have saved the day and they are not going anywhere! Instead they are on the decline, reaching three-year lows! This is good news for any buyer struggling to afford a home in the current market. Buyers expectations also need to be adjusted. If buyers are waiting for the market to drop like a rock and then make purchase, that is simply not on the horizon.  Sitting back and waiting on the sidelines will prove to be a waste of time. From there, housing will transition to the Autumn Market and fewer homeowners place their homes on the market and many unsuccessful sellers will pull their homes off the market. The active listing inventory will drop for the remainder of the year, meaning that now is the time to make your purchase and you can enjoy all the benefits of owning your own home!

What about the Luxury Market?

For homes priced between $1.25 million and $1.5 million, in the past two-weeks, the Expected Market Time decreased from 147 to 130 days. For homes priced between $1.5 million and $2 million, the Expected Market Time increased from 240 to 244 days. For homes priced between $2 million and $4 million, the Expected Market Time decreased from 288 to 280 days. For homes priced above $4 million, the Expected Market Time decreased from 500 to 404 days.

OC Housing Report: Staying Put

Posted 8/1/19

Information proved by Steven Thomas

We like to keep our clients updated on the CURRENT REAL ESTATE MARKET IN ORANGE COUNTY.  Our experience is vast with 60+ combined years in the Real Estate industry, WE ARE THE AREA EXPERTS!!!

 If you currently own a home in Orange County or looking to make an investment this year, being clear on where the current Real Estate market is can make all the difference in your decisions.

Below is a summary of the current OC Housing Report…

 Staying Put

 Not as many homeowners are placing their homes on the market than what is typical for this time of the year. In Orange County, there were 11% fewer homes that came on the market in June of this year compared to June of 2018. So far in July, there are 6% fewer, or 159 missing FOR SALE signs year-over-year. For buyers monitoring local housing closely, they have witnessed this recent phenomenon. There simply are not as many new homes coming on for buyers to tour.

What does this mean for sellers?

For sellers desiring an even hotter housing market, that is not what is going on here. Instead, the Expected Market Time (the time it would take for a home that comes on the market today to enter escrow down the road) is not slowing as much as it normally does during the summer time. At the end of May, it was at 85 days. Today, it is at 91 days. Orange County is experiencing a Balanced Market (from 90 to 120 days), one that does not favor sellers or buyers. Nobody is in the driver’s seat in a market that is balanced, home values do not change, and there are fewer multiple offer situations.

Had the typical number of homes come on the market, it would be a deeper Balanced Market. This is more than just a blip on the housing radar. It is a trend that will ultimately impact the overall feel and trajectory of the market for the remainder of 2019. Fewer FOR SALE signs translates to fewer choices and a stronger Expected Market Time. Summer is a time when demand softens a bit as the supply of homes increases. That continues until housing transitions to the Autumn Market, where the Expected Market Time remains relatively the same for the rest of the year. With the growth in the supply of homes slowing early, it means the Expected Market Time will not change much from the summer through the end of the year. When the kids go back to school, even fewer homes come on the market while buyer demand diminishes. With both supply and demand falling at nearly the same rate, not much changes in the overall feel of housing.

What does this mean for buyers?

With last week’s drop-in interest rates, this is good news for any buyer struggling to afford a home in the current market. But this could be the peak for 2019, unless it climbs one more time over the coming two weeks. So, expect demand to rise slightly over the coming two weeks, a last hurrah for the Summer Market. From there, housing will transition to the Autumn Market. With both the Spring and Summer Markets in the rearview mirror, fewer homeowners place their homes on the market and many unsuccessful sellers throw in the towel and pull their homes off the market. The active listing inventory will drop for the remainder of the year, meaning that now is the time to make your purchase and you can enjoy all the benefits of owning your own home!

What about the Luxury Market?

For homes priced between $1.25 million and $1.5 million, in the past two-weeks, the Expected Market Time increased from 143 to 147 days. For homes priced between $1.5 million and $2 million, the Expected Market Time increased from 189 to 240 days, the largest shift at the luxury end. For homes priced between $2 million and $4 million, the Expected Market Time increased from 262 to 288 days. For homes priced above $4 million, the Expected Market Time decreased from 518 to 500 days. At 500 days, a seller would be looking at placing their home into escrow around December 2020.

OC Housing Report: Last Call

We like to keep our clients updated on the CURRENT REAL ESTATE MARKET IN ORANGE COUNTY.  Our experience is vast with 60+ combined years in the Real Estate industry, WE ARE THE AREA EXPERTS!!!

If you currently own a home in Orange County or looking to make an investment this year, being clear on where the current Real Estate market is can make all the difference in your decisions.

Below is a summary of the current OC Housing Report…

Last Call

In order for sellers to cash in on the most lucrative time to sell a home during the year, they better open up escrow soon.  This is also the time of year when many sellers come on the market thinking they have ample amount of time to market their home to take advantage of the Summer Market, but that simply is not the case.

Housing has downshifted from the best time of the year to sell, the spring, to the second-best time of the year, summer.  Once school starts, it is just too disruptive for a family to move, so buyers want to close escrow by the end of August.

What does this mean for sellers?

Pricing a home correctly is absolutely fundamental to cash in on the housing market and find success. Starting off overpriced means that sellers will have to reduce their asking price to be successful and in order to cash in on the most lucrative time to sell, they better open up escrow soon!

What does this mean for buyers?

With the drop-in interest rates, this is good news for any buyer struggling to afford a home in the current market. Along with the high level of active inventory, the Expected Market time increasing and few multiple offer situations, buyers have more choices with active listings and lower interest rates.

What about the Luxury Market?

The luxury market has actually improved slightly in the past couple of weeks with a 4% increase of pending sales. Extra seller competition and muted demand in the luxury ranges in 2019 is a trend that has endured. The Expected Market Time ranges from 92-118 for homes priced $1m-$1.5m, a slight drop, but still quite sluggish.

What’s Ahead for Real Estate in 2019?

Posted 1/22/19

Information provided by the Paperless Agent

 

With so much uncertainty in the stock market right now, many of our clients are naturally concerned about where the housing market is headed in 2019.

Fortunately, the real estate market has some good news to offer. Economists expect sales levels to stabilize in the coming year and for home values to continue rising, although at a more modest pace than we saw earlier in the decade.

We’re committed to delivering the truth to our clients, whether it’s positive or negative. And the reality is, much like the stock market, the real estate market will experience ups and downs.

But people will always need a place to live and raise their families, and the majority of them will want to do it in their own home. Experts remain confident that the real estate market will continue to offer a path for Americans to build wealth over the long term … and we wholeheartedly agree.

If you’re concerned, or just curious, you should check out the attached report, that answers the question: What’s Ahead for Real Estate in 2019?

Or head over to our blog, where we share even more detailed real estate predictions and offer some steps you can take today to prepare to make a move this year: [OCRealEstateLifeStyle.com]
