Cliff’s Viewpoint:

Seller’s Market

Redwood City CA: We are seeing changes in the average sale price for homes, which are starting to head up. And the length of time on the market is stable. These trends favor home sellers. The Sale Price vs List Price ratio is down indicating homes are listed for sale at a more reasonable price to home-buyers. The months of inventory available is heading down. The number of new homes brought on the market for sale is 52.38% of the sold homes. This means more home are going out the door than are coming in.

What the future looks like nation-wide…

  • “Economic growth in Q1 accelerated, but momentum is slowing. Inflation pressures were much weaker than initially thought, supporting lower rates.
  • Consumer confidence rose in May to its highest level since December 2010, thanks in large part to a healthy job market and rising wages.
  • However, concerns over a slowing economy and inverted bond yield curves have economists speculating that we could see a recession in the upcoming year.
  • According to the FHFA, home prices rose 5.1% in Q1 from a year earlier. This is slower growth than in recent years but still a historically healthy pace.
  • Case Shiller also reported home prices rising at a slower pace, despite falling mortgage rates. This is good news, though, for buyers entering the market.​
  • Pending home sales fell unexpectedly in April. Compared to a year ago, sales were down 2.0%, marking the 16th straight month of annual decreases.”

Everyone knows rapid upward market trends could not continue indefinitely. It is important additionally to understand the bubble is not here. Because the demand for housing is still very strong. And mortgage interest rate remains affordable and stable. Home-buyers are going to have to continue to pay higher prices for their homes. This should continue throughout 2019.
