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 ...

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

3 Must-Do's When Selling Your House This Year

It’s exciting to put a house on the market and to think about making new memories in new spaces. However, despite the anticipation of what’s to come, we can still have deep sentimental attachments to the home we’re leaving behind. Growing emotions can help or hinder a sale depending on how we manage them.
When it comes to the bottom line, homeowners need to know what it takes to avoid costly mistakes when it’s time to move. Being mindful and prepared for the process can help you stay on the right track when selling your house this year.
1. Price Your Home Right
When inventory is low, like it is in the current market, it’s common to think buyers will pay whatever we ask when setting a listing price. Believe it or not, that’s not always true. Don’t forget that the buyer’s bank will send an appraiser to determine the fair value for your house. The bank will not lend more than what the house is worth, so be aware that you mig ...
