Carollo Real Estate's: What’s Happening in the Real Estate Market?

2016-06-21T17:05:23-04:00

Leading economists in real estate converged in New Orleans this past week as they presented their answer to this question at the 50th Annual Real Estate Journalism Conference for the National Association of Real Estate Editors. Here are the top takeaways from the week of presentations: Many of the conversations at the conference came back to the impact that Millennials and first-time home buyers will have on the market in the future. Jonathan Smoke, Chief Economist for realtor.com had this to say:  “At any given time in our history, demographics would explain 60-80% of what’s happening [in the market], and we are in a period of time where Millennials make up a largest demographic group according to the Census, at 84 million.” According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the median first-time home buyer age is 30 and many millennials are entering a prime age to drive the housing market into the future. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist for NAR shared that myths and affordability may be holding back potential buyers: “84% of current renters have the desire to own. While 36% believe they cannot afford a home and 60% of renters believe it would be ‘difficult’ to qualify for a mortgage. Ellie Mae’s Vice President, Jonas Moe encouraged buyers to know their options before assuming that they do not qualify for a mortgage:  “Many potential home buyers are 'disqualifying' themselves. You don't need a 750 FICO Score and a 20% down payment to buy.” The National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) revealed that Millennials and Baby Boomers are often competing for the same housing inventory, causing a challenge as these two groups are the largest generations by population. Both groups are looking for affordable, convenient homes close to city centers and ‘what’s happening.’ Bottom Line The experts agree that homeownership is still desirable across all demographic groups, with Millennials and Baby Boomers having a great impact on available supply. If your dreams include owning your own home, meet with a local real estate professional who can evaluate your ability to buy now! [...]

Paying rent is NOT a good investment You want more living space to move around in To provide your children with a good education to begin investing in your retirement Start building a family Select a community where people share your values You get to decide if your child has a best friend Nobody tells you how to decorate your home It motivates you to be a better citizen Owning a home provides you with tax benefits "Americans yearn for homeownership. Most think it makes more financial sense than renting andd plan to buy again or buy for the first time at some point. They associate homeownership with greater control over their lives, less insecurity of tenure and better communities"-Eric S.

Carollo Real Estate: Woman Finds Her Own House for Rent on Craigslist

Women Finds Her Own House for Rent on Craigslist

(image) Imagine looking at ads on Craigslist one day and seeing your family home for rent, only you didn’t post the ad and have no intentions of renting out your home.

That’s what happened to Lourdes Guerrero, who owns a home in the greater Los Angeles area, according to a local CBS news affiliate.

A friend reportedly showed Guerrero the ad, and she called the listed phone number. The man on the other end “went silent when she told him she was the homeowner,” according to the CBS2 report.

The news affiliate called the number later and received a “mailbox full” message. Fortunately, the ad did not include Guerrero’s address, according to the report.

“This is where I’m supposed to feel safe with my kids,” Guerrero reportedly told CBS2. “I don’t need random people coming here. That’s scary.”

The situation didn’t end so well for Samantha Sari.

Sari reportedly saw the ad on Craigslist, which listed the home as a rent-to-own for $1,100 per month. When she called about the home she was asked for a $40 application fee and provided her credit card information.

However, one challenge to the current market is a major shortage of inventory. Below are a few comments made in the last month by industry experts. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist of NAR “Looking ahead, the key for sustained momentum and more sales than last spring is a continuous stream of new listings quickly replacing what's being scooped up by a growing pool of buyers. Without adequate supply, sales will likely plateau." Jonathan Smoke, Chief Economist of Realtor.com "Low inventories and tight credit will limit the gains we will see in 2016. However, given the level of pent-up demand evident in web activity and stated buyer intentions for 2016, we should see this spring materialize as the busiest season of sales since 2006." Rick Sharga, Ten-X's EVP “Inventory is too low to support much higher sales. There's virtually no inventory available at the entry level, and single family housing starts and permits continue to languish at levels far below where they should be at this point of the recovery.” David Crowe, Chief Economist of the National Assoc. of Home Builders “Many sellers may not have an absolute decision as to whether to buy an existing home or a new home. So the low inventory of existing homes is locking them in place.” Freddie Mac “Challenges remain, with low housing supply and declining affordability being a key concern in many markets.”   For More Information Please Call (718) 747-7747 or Visit Our Website Just Click Here [...]

In their March Housing Outlook Report, Freddie Mac explained: “Despite the challenges facing the housing market, we expect this to be the best year for housing in a decade. Home sales, housing starts, and house prices will reach their highest level since 2006 according to our latest forecast…Challenges remain, with low housing supply and declining affordability being a key concern in many markets, but on balance, the housing markets in the U.S. are poised for the best year since 2006.” The key indicators that have given Freddie Mac such a positive outlook are: Low interest rates A resilient labor market An increase in household formations A projected increase in newly constructed homes Bottom Line 2016 looks to be shaping up as a great year for residential real estate. Whether you are thinking of buying or selling, now may be the time to sit down with a real estate professional to discuss the new opportunities that are arising. [...]
