Should Inflation Stop You from Buying a Home in 2022?

Should Inflation Stop You from Buying a Home in 2022A high inflation rate means prices rise across the board so it is reasonable for someone to say “Yes”, but while home prices aren’t an exception, this should not be the reason keeping you from buying a home in 2022. We are aware of the appreciation that has occurred in the real estate market for the past couple of years, and the experts say we can expect that increase to continue in 2022, though maybe not as dramatically.

In this period of record-breaking, rising consumer costs, homeownership offers the one fixed overhead expense you can rely on with a fixed mortgage. As James Royal, Senior Wealth Management Reporter at Bankrate stated:

“Sure, property taxes will rise, and other expenses may creep up, but your monthly housing payment remains the same.”

With rent control going away, renters are in an even more precarious position. Ali Wolf, Chief Economist at Zonda, explains:

“You want to think through where you can put your money, so it does not lose value. Housing is commonly looked at as a good inflation hedge…”

Even if you cannot qualify for a conventional mortgage through the normal channels of banks and other lending institutions, there is still the private mortgage lending arena to consider. Sun Pacific Mortgage offers private money mortgages to Borrowers and Buyers who otherwise might not be able to qualify for a loan. Whether your FICA score is too low, or your property doesn’t meet the federal requirements, or you need to close in under a month, give us a call at 707-523-2099.  You can also reach out through our website at www.Sunpacificmortgage.com.  We have helped thousands of other Borrowers and Buyers just like you over the past 34 years we have been in business in California.

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.

Should I Buy a New Home or Sell Mine First?

Should I Buy a New Home or Sell Mine First

There are pluses and minuses to both decisions, regardless of which one you choose. Therefore, let’s examine all off the possible consequences to buying a new home or selling first:

Pluses:

  • Being able to snag a home when you see one you want.
  • Fewer moving hassles and no storage fees.
  • Easier selling process.
  • Cash offers give you a firm competitive advantage.
  • You might be able to avoid some capital gains taxes.
  • Relieves the stress of living in your home while trying to sell it.

Minuses:

  • You might need to juggle 2 mortgages for a while, but in a seller’s market which we are in now, this may not be much of a problem.
  • Selling and buying on the same day may cause some unexpected problems, such as financing delays or schedule changes.
  • You might need to borrow from your retirement savings for the down payment.

It would appear that the advantages far outweigh the cons in this scenario. But what are the options that allow for buying before selling?

Firstly, you could make a contingency offer allowing you to back out of the offer if you fail to sell your home on time. This is a definite “no-go” in today’s market where homes are being snatched up in fewer than a week in most cases.

Secondly, Buyers who use the equity tied up in their present home allows them to make an attractive cash offer and have a competitive advantage during these fierce bidding wars.

A simple solution to buying before selling is our popular Bridge Loan program. Using the equity in your present home to obtain enough money to make your down payment, allows you to quickly seal the deal on your new home. Sun Pacific Mortgage has been offering this program for owner-occupied and investment properties for 34 years in California. If you need fast money to secure your dream home, give us a call at 707-523-2099. Lately, we have saved many homebuyers from losing their sought-after dream home by providing the funds for them to purchase before selling.

San Diego Housing Market Trends

San Diego Housing Market TrendsIn January 2022, San Diego home prices were up 19.3% compared to last year, selling for a median price of $811,000. The average days on the market was only 11 days as opposed to 17 days last year. The total number of homes sold this January was 933, down from 1063 last year.

It is obvious that the housing market remains hot in the San Diego area. According to Redfin many homes are still getting multiple offers, some with waived contingencies.

The average home is selling for about 3% above listing price and go pending in around 10 days. The “hotter” home can sell for about 8% above listing and go pending in around 6 days. The sale-to-list price for all home types was 103% in January.

The San Diego market reflects much of the rest of the California’s larger cities and their environs. Buyers are finding it difficult to lock in a deal and sellers are happy to have several offers from which to choose.

If you have been discouraged by failing once or more to secure a home with your offer, consider a private mortgage loan from Sun Pacific Mortgage. Your offer will stand out in the crowd as a “cash offer” with a very quick closing, both strong incentives in this market. We have been able to execute closings in as little as a week because of our inhouse operation.

Give us a call at 707-523-2099 or visit our website at www.sunpacificmortgage.com to discover what we can do for you to strength your offers and get you into the home you have chosen.

Looking at the trends for the beginning of the year it is clear that inventory is declining while prices keep rising-an expected outcome based on the principles of supply-and-demand.  The following is a snapshot of Sonoma County and 3 specific cities in the North Bay that illustrate this development:

Sonoma County:

  • 260 homes in inventory at end of January (51% below 1/2021)
  • 310 new sales (27% below 1/2021)
  • Days on market: 30 (Rohnert Park) to 103 (Cloverdale)
  • Median price for closed escrows: $750,000 (14.5% up from 1/2021)
  • Homes sold for 98% of original price

Santa Rosa:

  • 85 homes left at end of January 2022 (66% down from 1/2021)
  • 148 new listings (22% down from 1/2021)
  • 135 closings
  • Median price for closed escrows: $705,000 (14% above 1/2021)
  • Average days on market: 54

Petaluma:

  • 29 homes in inventory at end of January (6% below 1/2021)
  • 29 new sales (33% below 1/2021)
  • Median price for closed escrows:  $827,000 (11% down from 1/2021)
  • Average days on market: 38

Rohnert Park:

  • 8 homes in inventory at end of January (50% down from 1/2021)
  • 21 new sales (55% down from 1/2021)

Note: This was the 20th month in a row that sales were in excess of inventory at the beginning of the month making this the tightest market in the North Bay.

  • Median price for closed escrows: $650,000 (17% above 1/2021)
  • Average days on market: 30
