MARKET UPDATE: January 2021 Real Estate Recap

Market Update





Weekly San Luis Obispo County Numbers are in, as well as the California Association of Realtors January 2021 Report and First American Title Company's Central Coast January 2021 Recap.



Tight inventory is making 2021 a great year to list a home! It's important to remember that the housing market today is not the same as the housing market during the 'Bubble Years'. Lower mortgage rates and rising incomes correspond with higher house prices, strong demand and low inventory.

Winter months tend to show slowing in the Real Estate industry year over year. Mortgage rates are beginning to inch up, however the FEDs have indicated they don't intend to raise the National rate anytime soon. For buyers, NOW is the time to take advantage of these historical low rates while they last!

Despite possible improvement on the supply side of the market as we approach the Spring Selling Season, upward pressure on prices are continuing to build up. With current inve ...

3 REASONS WE'RE DEFINITELY NOT IN A HOUSING BUBBLE

Home values appreciated by about ten percent in 2020, and they’re forecast to appreciate by about five percent this year. This has some voicing concern that we may be in another housing bubble like the one we experienced a little over a decade ago. Here are three reasons why this market is totally different.
1. This time, housing supply is extremely limited
The price of any market item is determined by supply and demand. If supply is high and demand is low, prices normally decrease. If supply is low and demand is high, prices naturally increase.
In real estate, supply and demand are measured in “months’ supply of inventory,” which is based on the number of current homes for sale compared to the number of buyers in the market. The normal months’ supply of inventory for the market is about 6 months. Anything above that defines a buyers’ market, indicating prices will soften. Anything below that defines a sellers’ market in which prd ...

MARKET UPDATE: Home Prices, Home Sales and Interest Rates, OH MY!

Market Update





San Luis Obispo County hasn't seen much change with New Listings hitting the market in comparison to the previous couple weeks. We did see a nearly 13% increase in properties going Pending. With more than 15% less properties sold this past week, the uptick of escrows opened, and no influx of inventory hitting the market, we're still very much in a Seller's Market.

















A swell of buyers are looking to enter the market, keeping demand firm amidst the continued historically low interest rates. By the 4th quarter this year, experts are forecasting that refinance volume will decrease, largely because many will have already refinanced due to these low rates.




















In 2020, median listing prices grew 13.3%, according to Realtor.com. Experts forecast prices will stay on this upward track.
































Even if home prices rise as forecasted, that w ...

MARKET UPDATE: Inventory Crisis?

Market Update






We've seen greater than a 50% drop in inventory since mid-October.
With so few homes on the market, buyers have been grasping at straws.
Interest rates are still hovering at an all time low. With an upcoming shift in Presidency and so much uncertainty with Covid-19 cases surging, home buyers want to take advantage of the low rates while they last.

Your House May Be High On The Buyer Wish List This Holiday Season

Around this time each year, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to sell their houses. Similarly, others who already have their homes on the market remove their listings until the spring. Let’s unpack the top reasons why selling your house now, or keeping it on the market this season, is the best choice you can make. This year, buyers want to purchase homes for the holidays, and your house might be the perfect match.
Here are seven great reasons not to wait to sell your house this holiday season:
1. Buyers are active now. Mortgage rates are historically low, providing motivation for those who are ready to get more for their money over the life of their home loan.
2. Purchasers who look for homes during the holidays are serious ones, and they’re ready to buy.
3. You can restrict the showings in your house to days and times that are most convenient for you, or even select virtual options. You’ll remai ...
