North Bay Real Estate Market and the U.S.Economy

North Bay Real Estate Market and the U.S.Economy

The red-hot North Bay real estate market has responded to the climbing interest rates and growing inflation by slowing sales. For rates to go from 3% to 6% is a shock to the market. The current market still favors Sellers, however.

In the North Bay year-over year property sales in May were down in Sonoma County by 22% (385 homes sold); Napa County 12.1% (105 homes sold); Marin County by 10.1% (178 homes sold). In Solano County sales rose 5.8% with 328 homes sold in May. This increase was not a surprise to CAR Chief Economist, Oscar Wei, who knows that Solano County is the most affordable county in the North Bay.

There is a definite shift in the market. Buyers are realizing that they don’t need to put in an offer on the first thing they see, and there is a decrease in multiple offers and homes selling for more than the asking price. It is note-worthy that the economists see this as a shift to a more balanced market rather than a crash like we witnessed in 2005 to 2012.

In May, 16% of homes in the three counties sold at reduced prices, and by late June that number jumped to 19%. There is a slowdown of both the low end and the high-end Buyers. People are still buying, just not at the frenzied rate they have been in recent years.

Different demographics have influenced the real estate market in recently, but that could be changing. With baby boomers becoming seniors who may be more reluctant to downsize because of higher interest rates, much of the market will belong to the millennials.

We know that there will always be a demand for housing in the North Bay. So, while things may not be as hectic as they have been for the past 3 years, we can relax a bit and welcome the more stable, balanced market that we are experiencing today.

Whether it be a Buyers’ or a Sellers’ market, Sun Pacific Mortgage is here to offer our privately funded loans to those borrowers who need a fast close or have been turned down for a conventional mortgage. Give us a call at 707-523-2099 or visit our website at www.sunpacificmortgage.com to see what we can do for you.

What Happened in the Bay Area Real Estate Market During the 2nd Quarter?

What Happened in the Bay Area Real Estate Market During the 2nd Quarter

As one Realtor put it, “If the stock market is like a jet skier on a triple espresso, the real estate market is like a giant cargo ship that decelerates and turns slowly.”

This is what we are seeing in the Bay Area as mortgage rates increase and inflation is climbing. Because of the sharp turn in the market, it is better to consider a three-month average than a single month’s data. The following data gives the Bay Area market results in each county for April, May, June:

Q2 2022 Medium Sales Price:

San Mateo: $2,200,000

San Francisco: $2,000,000

Marin: $1,995,000

Santa Clara: $1,880,000

Alameda: $1,460,000

Santa Cruz: $1,350,000

Contra Costa: $975,000

Napa: $973,000

Monterey: $875,000

Sonoma: $860,000

Solano: $625,000

With numbers like this, Bay Area properties are not likely to plunge into severe depreciation any time soon. Real estate continues to be the most stable of all investments according to the economists. Relax, no need to panic. This is just a part of the natural real estate market cycle we have experienced time and again.

The No.1 Reason Why the Housing Market Won’t Crash

The No.1 Reason Why the Housing Market Won’t Crash
A flaming-hot housing market saw an unprecedented 24% price increase since the outbreak of the virus last year. The market is just beginning to slow down a bit because Buyers are beginning to push back at the sky-high prices.

Some doomsayers would like you to believe that because housing went up too fast, it must now come down.  But that is in opposition to what the data demonstrates. When examined more carefully, the 2021 housing market and the 2008 housing bubble are very different bull markets.

Consider the complete and utter frenzy leading up to the financial crisis back in 2008. Homebuilders went on a building spree so that when the market started to slow in 2006, the surplus of new construction put negative pressure on prices.  It took years for housing to shake that glut.

How does that compare with 2021?  They are almost polar opposites.  Burned by the 2008 crisis, Homebuilders have been extremely conservative in recent years (2013-2021) averaging 1.2 million monthly housing starts as opposed to the 1.7 million per month leading up to the Great Recession. In fact, our nation is under-built by about 3.8 million single-family homes according to Freddie Mac.

The rush of Buyers during the pandemic only exacerbated the housing problem and between April 2020 and April 2021, housing inventory fell over 50% leaving us at a 40-year low.

Although the Fortune report quoted in this article is based on the entire nation, we have seen the extremes of this phenomenon in California. Sure, price growth may go flat here or even fall slightly, but a 2008-style crash is improbable without it.

If you are looking to invest your money in a more secure place than a volatile stock market, consider becoming a private investor with Sun Pacific Mortgage.  We offer private money mortgages to worthy Borrowers who need to close quickly or cannot qualify for a conventional loan.  All the Borrowers and loans have been carefully vetted before being promoted to our investor community.  Go online to www.sunpacmortgage.com to learn more about our programs.

Alt-A Hard Money By The Guys in the White Hats

Lower Hard money rates from 7% – 9% with this unique alternative finance program, for Borrowers and Buyers who are just shy of qualifying for conventional or traditional “A paper” loans:

  • Good credit (640 and above)
  • Below 60% Loan to Value
  • Property in good condition and location

Perfect example of why this popular program is so beneficial:

Broker reached out to us for his Home Buyer, who needed a 799k short term loan to buy an investment property in Mill Valley.  Underwriting was unable to provide final approval due to confusions about and LLC as the individual buying entity, despite great qualifications.

Buyer’s credit was over 750, he had a good down payment allowing for 56% LTV, he made great monthly income and had a lot of other real estate assets as well as excess funds in the bank. He was a perfect borrower – except he wanted to buy with his LLC – which is where we were able to wrangle up our unique Alt-A program and help!

If you have any question or scenarios for us, just call 707-523-2099 or visit our website at www.sunpacificmortgage.com.  We will let you know how we can wrangle up the right private money loan program to help.

Are We Looking at Deceleration or Depreciation?

You are probably well aware that houses have skyrocketed recently, but did you know that this has been true for the past 122 consecutive months? Much of this increase was due to the abundance of Buyers and the lack of Sellers. Experts are forecasting ongoing appreciation, just at a decelerated pace. In other words, prices will keep climbing, just not as fast as they have been.

Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American, identifies a key reason why home prices won’t depreciate or drop:

“In today’s housing market, demand for homes continues to outpace supply, which is keeping the pressure on house prices, so don’t expect the prices to fall.

Experts are forecasting ongoing appreciation, just at a decelerated pace. In other words, prices will keep climbing, just not as fast as they have been. The graph below shows home price forecasts from seven industry leaders. Note that none are forecasting prices to fall.

San Francisco and Bay Area Real Estate Report for May


Even though we have been bombarded with negative headlines for over a month, the housing market in the North Bay has remained strong. San Francisco Bay Area has seen over 30% growth for residential real estate since the pandemic! That is huge! It has been on a 10-year bull run. Even though real estate markets have historically been on a 7-year cycle, this wild ride has been constant for 13 years! Hard to believe? Look at the statistics for single-family home sales for May:

San Francisco:

Avg. sale price: $2,410,387 (April $2,502,144)
Avg. list price: $2,148,931
Avg. Days on Market: 18
Homes sold: 282

Menlo Park:

Avg. sale price: $4,009,035
Avg. Days on Market: 10 (9% over asking)

Foster City:

Avg. sale price: $2,529,181
Avg. Days on Market: 11 (18% over asking)


Avg. sale price: $2,925,721 (15% over asking)
Avg. Days on Market: 10

San Carlos:

Avg. Days on Market: 11


Avg. sale price: $3,289444 (9% over asking)
Avg. Days on Market: 9


Most analysts believe that the secondary and tertiary markets will be hit harder going forward, and that prices will begin to come down slightly for every market. Sellers will need to get realistic about our new normal and Buyers will need to be patient. Buyers will still need to pull the trigger on homes they love when the opportunity arises.

If you are interested in getting into this strong wealth builder but have been disqualified for a loan now that rates have risen, give Sun Pacific Mortgage a call at 707-523-2099 or visit our website www.sunpacificmortgage.com.
