Why is the Housing Supply So Low?

Why is the Housing Supply So Low?
At the top of the question list for Buyers last year and this year is, “Why is it so hard to find a house to buy?”  Simply stated:  The number of Buyers greatly outstrips the homes available for sale. There are two main reasons the housing supply is low and what it may mean for you:

  1. New home construction fell behind for the past five decades except for 2008. Builders exceeded the average of new homes during these years of the housing bubble. As a result, an oversupply of homes caused home values to decline. That was one of the factors that led to the housing crash in 2008. Since then, the level of new home construction has fallen off, and for the last 13 straight years, Builders haven’t been able to construct enough homes to meet the demand.
  2. When the pandemic hit, the meaning of “home” became even more appreciated. With work and school moving into homes, there was a rush to find suitable housing for all the new activities happening in a sometimes- too- small space. At the same time, Sellers hesitated to put their homes on the market because of concerns about the pandemic. Not to forget mortgage rates dropping to the lowest seen in decades, adding to the urgency to buy now.

Even today, Buyers find themselves looking at scant inventory and higher prices. Offers exceed listing prices by a considerable margin. Basically, inventory is still low. Still, you shouldn’t put your plans to buy on hold because you are waiting for additional houses to hit the market. With prices continuing to rise and construction materials becoming ever harder to obtain, that could end up being a longer wait than makes sense.

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.

What Factors Today are Having the Biggest Effect on Housing?

What Factors Today are Having the Biggest Effect on Housing?

Some might consider interest rates to have the most influence on the housing market, but that is only one factor in a confluence of factors including: local economic conditions, financial markets, housing affordability, consumer confidence, inflation, migration, the pandemic, war, debt, and government policies. Each of these conditions can have major market impacts, both positive and negative.

In Sonoma County the market remained overheated for all of Q1 with home-price appreciation and supply-and-demand leading the pack. With mortgage rates rising at the beginning of Q2, the outlook is difficult to predict. Low inventory will continue to have an influence on pricing, but to what extent is still unclear. In the past, Q2 has typically been the highest demand and most active selling season of the year.

In Q1 2022, the median home price was $820,000. This statistic is a generalization which indicates that half of the homes sold closed below this figure and half sold for more than this amount. The median days on the market for Q1 2022 ranged from a high of 95 days (Kenwood) to a low of 22 days (Cotati).

Looking at the number of active listings over the past 6 years for the month of March would be a good indicator of how volatile the market has been:

  • March 2017: 515
  • March 2018: 528
  • March 2019: 761
  • March 2020: 800
  • March 2021: 554
  • March 2022: 360

Regardless of all the extenuating circumstances affecting the real estate market in Sonoma County, experts say we should only see a slight slow-down in appreciation and activity because Buyers are still looking to live in an area where they can have more for less when compared to other neighboring regions.

California Home Prices Got Pricier During 2021

why now california housing market featuredThe 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.

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.
