The Pros and Cons of Waiting Out the Hot Housing Market

The Pros and Cons of Waiting Out  the Hot Housing Market

Just as the pandemic put a temporary damper on the housing market, so too did the jump in mortgage rates. But just as the economic shut down didn’t have a lasting effect on the market, neither will this increase in mortgage rates. And the reason is the same – very little inventory. There are still more Buyers than Sellers and that is driving the market right now.

Despite the slight increases in interest rates, and decreases in inventory, it doesn’t necessarily mean the market is going down. Because Builders have not built enough housing and interest rates remain relatively low, it is thought that the industry might slow, but not fall.

Waiting can be a gamble in this game of real estate. Even if you wait to purchase with the thought that prices could be coming down, if rates increase it will all be for nothing. And renting will not be a cheaper option in the long run.

The market is stable. It hasn’t been driven by Investors, Flippers, and bad mortgages, but by legitimate Buyers. While demand may slow down eventually, there are no signs of prices going down anytime soon.

If you need a loan fast or have not qualified for a conventional loan, consider a privately funded mortgage through Sun Pacific Mortgage. Give us a call at 707-523-2099 or visit our website at www.sunpacificmortgage.com if you are purchasing or refinancing in California.

What Will the Housing Market Look Like as the Rates Rise?

What Will the Housing Market Look Like as the Rates Rise?

The short answer to this persistent question is, “Nobody knows.”  This statement comes from Edward Seller, Associate Vice President for Housing Economics at the Mortgage Bankers Association.

So, where does that leave the everyday Homebuyer with rents soaring faster and steeper than mortgages? One Redfin Realtor said that she hears people are more worried about the stock market, rather than mortgage rates because they believe housing will be a better investment. Many Buyers see that the time is right for going all-out in bidding for scarce housing right now before it gets worse.

This anxiety regarding the unpredictability of rising rates explains the reason the housing market has not cooled yet and explains the surge in Buyers trying to get ahead of those higher rates now.

But do you keep getting turned away by other Lenders? Sun Pacific Mortgage has the answer with our Private Money loan programs: home or land purchases, refinancing, and bridge loans for business or commercial purposes. We have hundreds of Real Estate Investors who can finance your housing loans even if you do not qualify for conventional lending. Even poor credit, bankruptcy and less-than-perfect properties are not show-stoppers for our mortgage qualifications. Give us a call at 707-523-2099 or visit our website at www.sunpacificmortgage.com to discover a possible road to homeownership for you in these unpredictable times.

California Home Prices Got Pricier During 2021

The real estate market in California mirrored the rest of the country in 2021. Home prices increased by double digits in the more affordable areas, such as Sacramento and Riverside. The San Francisco Bay area had more modest increases, due in part to Buyers being anxious to relocate to more affordable, suburban areas. The San Francisco housing market saw the typical home value increase by only 9.3% compared to the statewide increase of 20%.

Overall, home prices in the state far outpaced the national median price. In October, the median sale price of a single-family home in California was $798,440, up 12.3% from last year. This new price was double that of the national median average of $353,900.

Oakland saw the biggest increase in demand. Alameda County, which includes Oakland and Berkeley, saw a 24% increase to $1.05M. in November. The move-in ready homes with work-from-home space and backyards often saw 12 or more offers.

Sacramento was one of the most sought-after destinations for Buyers who looked for more space and affordable prices. A single-family home’s median price rose 22.3% from 2021. This area tends to have bigger and newer homes compared to the coastal cities to the west.

In November 2021, Los Angeles saw their median home price rise from $730,000 to $810,000. The luxury market in Southern California near Montecito shot up 43% to $6.46M over the previous year.

Inventory remains low throughout California and anything that comes on the market tends to be snatched up quickly by Buyers afraid of losing out on finding a home.

So, what’s in store for California in 2022? According to most experts, home prices will grow half as fast as they did in 2021. With construction still lagging in the state, don’t look for housing demand to lessen. Availability will remain a negative factor for the foreseeable future.

If you need help getting a mortgage quickly to snag your dream home in California, give Sun Pacific Mortgage a call at 707-523-2099 or email us through our website at www.Sunpacificmortgage.com   We offer fast, Private Investor mortgages that will give you a leg-up in today’s competitive market.

Zillow Predicts the Wildest Home Price Swing Coming

Zillow Predicts the Wildest Home Price Swing Coming

Buyers are depleted, stretched, and disheartened after bidding often over the past year and falling short. Over the past 12 months U.S. home prices are up 18.8% – an increase larger than any 12-month period leading up to 2008.

Unfortunately for Homebuyers, but good news for Real Estate Investors and Homeowners, Zillow’s latest forecast has the year-over-year rate of increase in property values at 22% followed by only a subtle slowdown. By February 2023, Zillow forecasts that the rate of increase will be 17.8%. Not good news for those Buyers desperate to find affordable housing.

As Buyers are getting locked out of mortgages due to increased rates and the Private Money mortgage Lenders are becoming increasingly important to Borrowers. In California, where the housing crisis is at its worst, Sun Pacific Mortgage has seen business double in the past 12 months, largely because we offer – FAST, cash-like mortgage solutions to beleaguered Borrowers. Unable to compete with wealthy Real Estate Investors snatching up properties, Private mortgages give the “little guy” a chance to win in the David vs. Goliath war being waged.

Real Estate Voted Best Investment Eight Years in a Row

Real Estate Voted Best Investment Eight Years in a Row

Despite the present inflationary economic state that the country is wrestling with today, most Americans agree that Real Estate shines as the most secure place to protect your wealth.

Inflation has reached its highest level in 40 years. We have all painfully experienced the increases in goods, services, housing costs, and more. The only one of these items that can have a locked-in price is housing because your monthly payment is shielded from escalation. James Royal, Senior Wealth Management Reporter at Bankrate, explained it like this:

“A fixed-rate mortgage allows you to maintain the biggest portion of housing expenses at the same payment. Sure, property taxes will rise, and other expenses may creep up, but your monthly housing payment remains the same.”

Home ownership eliminates the dread that today’s renters are suffering because of huge jumps in rents. Various cities in the country have seen increases as much as 50%!

As a homeowner, you have seen the record-breaking increases in appreciation just over the past couple of years. As prices rise, so does the value of your home, making buying a home a great hedge during periods of inflation.

In short, when you lock in a mortgage payment, you shield your housing cost from increases, and you own an asset that typically gains value with time.

If you have found it impossible to obtain a conventional mortgage, give Sun Pacific Mortgage a call at 707-523-2099 or visit www.sunpacificmortgage.com. We have been serving Borrowers in California for over 34 years. Whether it is your own home, an investment property, or land, we offer firsts, seconds, bridges, and refinances.
