Ruby Hill Real Estate Market Trends Resized

Pending Home Sales Leap 5.5% in February

WASHINGTON (March 29, 2017) — Pending home sales rebounded sharply in February to their highest level in nearly a year and second-highest level in over a decade, according to the National Association of Realtors®. All major regions saw a notable hike in contract activity last month

Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says February’s convincing bump in pending sales is proof that demand is rising with spring on the doorstep. “Buyers came back in force last month as a modest, seasonal uptick in listings were enough to fuel an increase in contract signings throughout the country,” he said. “The stock market’s continued rise and steady hiring in most markets is spurring significant interest in buying, as well as the expectation from some households that delaying their home search may mean paying higher interest rates later this year.”

Added Yun, “Last month being the warmest February in decades also played a role in kick-starting prospective buyers’ house hunt.”

Looking ahead to the busy spring months, Yun expects to see continued ebbs and flows in activity as new supply struggles to replace listings that are going under contract at a very quick pace. This is especially the case at the lower- and mid-market price ranges, where choices are minimal and prices are being bid higher by multiple offers.

“The homes most buyers are in the market for are unfortunately the most difficult to find and ultimately buy,” said Yun. “The country’s healthy labor market is translating to greater job security, but affordability is not improving because home prices in some areas are still outpacing incomes by three times or more because of tight supply. How much new and existing inventory there is on the market this spring will determine if sales can reach their full potential and finally start reversing the nation’s low homeownership rate.”

Existing-home sales are forecast to be around 5.57 million this year, an increase of 2.3 percent from 2016 (5.45 million). The national median existing-home price this year is expected to increase around 4 percent. In 2016, existing sales increased 3.8 percent and prices rose 5.1 percent.

The index in the West increased 3.1 percent in February to 97.5, but is still 0.2 percent higher than a year ago.

New Reality? Buyers Face Fewer Choices

Daily Real Estate News | Thursday, February 23, 2017

Many markets are seeing so few new listings that they may not be able to meet the strong buyer demand heading into real estate’s traditionally busiest season. Listings are down more than 7 percent compared to a year ago across the country, according to the latest data by the National Association of REALTORS®.

Where Homes Are Selling the Fastest

Realtor.com® inventory data shows the following metro areas had listings that stayed on the market the shortest amount of time in January:

  • San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif.: 43 days
  • San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, Calif.: 47 days
  • San Diego-Carlsbad, Calif.: 55 days
  • Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, Wash.: 57 days
  • Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro-Franklin, Tenn.: 58 days
  • Vallejo-Fairfield, Calif.: 58 days
  • Greeley, Colo.: 58 days

“Competition is likely to heat up even more heading into the spring for house hunters looking for homes in the lower- and mid-market price range,” says Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist.

Existing-Home Sales Slide in December; 2016 Sales Best Since 2006

WASHINGTON (January 24, 2017) — Existing-home sales closed out 2016 as the best year in a decade, even as sales declined in December as the result of ongoing affordability tensions and historically low supply levels, according to the National Association of Realtors®.

Total existing-home sales which are completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, finished 2016 at 5.45 million sales and surpassed 2015 (5.25 million) as the highest since 2006 (6.48 million).

In December, existing sales decreased 2.8 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.49 million in December from an upwardly revised 5.65 million in November. With last month’s slide, sales are only 0.7 percent higher than a year ago.

Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says the housing market’s best year since the Great Recession ended on a healthy but somewhat softer note. “Solid job creation throughout 2016 and exceptionally low mortgage rates translated into a good year for the housing market,” he said. “However, higher mortgage rates and home prices combined with record low inventory levels stunted sales in much of the country in December.”

Properties typically stayed on the market for 52 days in December, up from 43 days in November but down from a year ago (58 days). Short sales were on the market the longest at a median of 97 days in December, while foreclosures sold in 53 days and non-distressed homes took 50 days. Thirty-seven percent of homes sold in December were on the market for less than a month.

Inventory data from Realtor.com® reveals that the metropolitan statistical areas where listings stayed on the market the shortest amount of time in December were San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif., 49 days; San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, Calif., and Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro-Franklin, Tenn., 50 days; and Billings, Mont., and Hanford-Corcoran, Calif., both at 51 days.

C.A.R. releases its 2017 California Housing Market Forecast

Home sales expected to edge up slightly in 2017, while prices post slowest gain in six years

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 29) – Following a dip in home sales in 2016, California’s housing market will post a nominal increase in 2017, as supply shortages and affordability constraints hamper market activity, according to the “2017 California Housing Market Forecast,” released today by CAR.

The C.A.R. forecast sees a modest increase in existing home sales of 1.4 percent next year to reach 413,000 units, up slightly from the projected 2016 sales figure of 407,300 homes sold. Sales in 2016 also will be virtually flat at 407,300 existing, single-family home sales, compared with the 408,800 pace of homes sold in 2015.

“Next year, California’s housing market will be driven by tight housing supplies and the lowest housing affordability in six years,” said C.A.R. President Pat “Ziggy” Zicarelli. “The market will experience regional differences, with more affordable areas, such as the Inland Empire and Central Valley, outperforming the urban coastal centers, where high home prices and a limited availability of homes on the market will hamper sales. As a result, the Southern California and Central Valley regions will see moderate sales increases, while the San Francisco Bay Area will experience a decline as home buyers migrate to peripheral cities with more affordable options.”

C.A.R.’s forecast projects growth in the U.S. Gross Domestic Product of 2.2 percent in 2017, after a projected gain of 1.5 percent in 2016. With California’s nonfarm job growth at 1.6 percent, down from a projected 2.3 percent in 2016, the state’s unemployment rate will reach 5.3 percent in 2017, compared with 5.5 percent in 2016 and 6.2 percent in 2015.

The average for 30-year, fixed mortgage interest rates will rise only slightly to 4.0 percent in 2017, up from 3.6 percent in 2016, but will still remain at historically low levels.

The California median home price is forecast to increase 4.3 percent to $525,600 in 2017, following a projected 6.2 percent increase in 2016 to $503,900, representing the slowest rate of price appreciation in six years.

“With the California economy continuing to outperform the nation, the demand for housing will remain robust even with supply and affordability constraints still very much in evidence. The net result will be California’s housing market posting a modest increase in 2017,” said C.A.R. Vice President and Chief Economist Leslie Appleton-Young. “The underlying fundamentals continue to support overall home sales growth, but headwinds, such as global economic uncertainty and deteriorating housing affordability, will temper stronger sales activity.”

Top 10 Reasons to buy a home in Ruby Hill, Pleasanton today

1. Selection, Selection, Selection in Ruby Hills, Pleasanton

Regardless of the price range a buyer desires, there are plenty of houses from which to choose.  A few years ago a buyer was forced to make   compromises if they were going to locate the home of their dreams. Now there is a great selection of attached homes, condos, townhouses and you can find large lots, small lots and a lot that will accommodate your boat or RV.  There are a lot of options in this market.

2. No Bidding Wars

Previously there was a feeding frenzy and buyers bid the properties up substantially from the original listing price. Buyers had their agents outbid other offers by thousands of dollars.  There is no competitive bidding in this buyer’s market.

3. You Can Make an Offer

Today the sell price vs. list price ration is about 96%.  A seller will not be insulted if you make them an offer they can’t refuse. Your Real Estate Agent can run the comparables and negotiate the best offer possible.

4. Patience is tolerated

Today a buyer can take more time. They can look at several homes and think about their decision for a few hours or days in Ruby Hill, Pleasanton.

5. Due Diligence is Welcomed

In this market, a buyer is encouraged to obtain a home inspection, termite inspection and appraisal.  A couple of years ago, many buyers waived these contingencies in order to gain an advantage with multiple offers.

6. Repair Requests are welcomed

After a buyer completes a home inspection, they are allowed to submit a repair request to the seller.  In the past, sellers might insist the home was sold as is.  Many times, there were back-up buyers waiting for a primary buyer to upset the seller whose home was increasing in value almost daily.

7. Few, if any Investors

It is estimated that one-third of all sales in 2005 were to investors.  These non-owner occupied buyers caused the market to inflate and affordability to decline.  Mortgage fraud became commonplace.  Now it’s a great time to buy without having to compete with hundreds of prospective landlords.

8. Location, Location, Location – Ruby Hill Pleasanton

Today’s buyers can find homes closer to work. Ruby Hill is very central, close to hwy 84 and 680.  In the past, buyers flocked to the outskirts in order to find affordable homes.  In this market, reasonably priced homes are within biking or walking distance to schools, bus and relatives.

9. Real financing is Available

The wink-wink zero down, no doc, adjustable, sub-prime loans are gone.  Fixed rates are back. FHA financing, first-time homeowner bond programs, special loans for teachers and police officers are back in business.

It’s a Great Time to Buy Real Estate!
