National Snapshot: How’s the Real Estate Market?

Kelly Broaddus | 888-446-5602 | Contact Kelly  

 

National Snapshot: How’s the Real Estate Market?

 

The U.S. unemployment rate is at a 50-year low, and consumer confidence remains high. In fact, the University of Michigan’s latest Surveys of Consumers found that Americans have their most positive personal finance outlook since 2003.1

 

However, if you follow national news, you’ve probably heard speculation that we could be headed toward a recession. Global trade tensions and a slow down in the GDP growth rate have sparked volatility in the stock market, leading to economic uncertainty.

 

Given these differing signals, you may be wondering: How has the U.S. housing market been impacted? Where is it headed? And more importantly … what does it mean for me?

 

 

MORTGAGE RATES ARE NEAR HISTORIC LOWS

 

In August, Freddie Mac reported that the average 30-year fixed mortgage rate hit its lowest level since November 2016, falling to 3.6%, down a full percentage point from a year earlier.2 Variable mortgage rates also fell when the Federal Reserve cut interest rates at the end of July for the first time since 2008.3

 

This was welcome news for many in the real estate industry. Freddie Mac predicts that low-interest rates and a robust job market will help the housing market remain strong despite the threat of recession.

 

“There is a tug of war in the financial markets between weaker business sentiment and consumer sentiment,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “Business sentiment is declining on negative trade and manufacturing headlines, but consumer sentiment remains buoyed by a strong labor market and low rates that will continue to drive home sales into the fall.”2

 

What does it mean for you? If you’re looking to buy a home, now is a great time to lock in a low mortgage rate. It will shrink your monthly payment and could save you a bundle over the long term. Or if you plan to stay in your current home for a while, consider whether it makes sense to refinance your mortgage at today’s lower rates.

 

 

PRICES CONTINUE TO RISE AT A MODEST PACE

 

According to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Indices, housing prices continue to rise. But the rate at which prices are rising is slowing down. For May 2019, the National Home Price Index rose by 3.4%, down from 3.5% the previous month.4

 

Of course, national averages often don’t present the whole picture. Some markets have seen modest declines, while other areas are witnessing double-digit increases. The key differentiating factor in most cases? Housing affordability.5

 

Since 2012, home prices have increased at about three times the pace of wages, according to National Association of Realtors chief economist Lawrence Yun.

 

“Housing unaffordability will hinder sales irrespective of the local job market conditions,” said Yun. “This is evident in the very expensive markets as home prices are either topping off or slightly falling.”5

 

But what about all this talk of a recession? Will we see housing values plummet like they did in 2008? Economists say no.

 

If we look at history, the real estate crash experienced during the Great Recession isn’t typical.

 

The recent Housing and Mortgage Market Review report from Arch Mortgage Insurance provides data to support this. “What we found is that the next recession is likely to be far less severe on the housing market than the last one. It’s not that this time is different; it’s that last time was really different from historic norms.”6

 

“A large decline in national home prices is unlikely in the next recession,” Arch economists write. “A persistent housing shortage should help cushion home price declines.”6

 

What does it mean for you? If you have the ability and desire to buy a home now, don’t let the threat of a recession hold you in limbo. The market is cyclical, and it will experience ups and downs. But over the long term, real estate has consistently proven to be a good investment.

 

 

STARTER INVENTORY REMAINS TIGHT WHILE LUXURY MARKET SOFTENS

 

As we’ve seen in the past, it’s become a tale of two sectors.

 

The low-end of the market remains highly competitive as buyers compete for affordable housing. A lack of new construction during the last recession led to an undersupply of starter homes. This trend continues—despite growing demand—due to a lack of skilled workers, rising land and material costs, and a slow permitting process in many areas.7

 

The result? There’s a shortage of homes for sale that Americans can actually afford to buy.

 

The luxury market, on the other hand, has softened. Economic uncertainty, changes to tax laws, and rising prices have slowed demand. Plus, to recoup their higher costs, builders flocked to this segment—causing an overabundance of supply in some areas.

 

“If you're selling an entry-level home, you're probably still looking at a pretty competitive market in most places,” according to Danielle Hale, the chief economist at Realtor.com. “But if you're selling a more expensive home you probably have to adjust your expectations.”8

 

What does it mean for you? Move-up buyers, you’re in luck! If you’re ready to trade in your starter home for something more luxurious, you may get the best of both sectors. We’re still witnessing strong demand for entry-level homes, giving sellers the upper hand. At the same time, buyers of high-end homes are finding a greater selection (and more negotiating power) than they’ve had in years.

 

 

INVESTORS ARE BUYING HOMES AT RECORD LEVELS

 

There’s one group that hasn’t been slowed down by lack of affordability or economic uncertainty: investors.

 

According to CoreLogic, investors are purchasing homes at a record pace. In 2018, the share of U.S. homes bought by investors reached 11.3%—the highest level since the company began tracking nearly 20 years ago.9

 

Notably, this increased activity wasn’t led by institutional investors, but instead by small and individual investors focused on the starter-home segment.7 Declining interest rates and an uncertain stock market have led investors to flock to real estate as they seek out greater stability and higher returns.

 

“With declining mortgage rates … they’re searching for a better return for their money,” said NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun.10

 

What does it mean for you? If you’re looking for a way to “recession-proof” your money, you might want to consider investing in real estate. People will always need a place to live, and (unlike the stock market) a rental property can provide a steady source of cash flow during uncertain economic times.

 

 

WE’RE HERE TO GUIDE YOU WITH FLAGSTAFF REAL ESTATE

Flagstaff AZ Real Estate Market Update- July 2019

Flagstaff AZ Real Estate Market Data Provided by The Kelly Broaddus Real Estate Advisors Team / by Joselyn Uy

July 2019 Flagstaff Market Report

 

Experts Predict A Stronger Market in the Second Half of the Year

This week we saw some major signals of a recession and also, some data indicating that a recession won’t happen. The volatility in the U.S. stock market and in global economies continues to stoke fear, but that’s partly caused a boom in the housing industry. What can you expect if you’re entering the market this fall? See our analysis below. Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

 

HOME SALES

The US existing home sales climb 2.5% in July after total sales were down slightly in the previous month. Meanwhile, the Greater Flagstaff total housing sales number for the month was 145, up 28% from a year ago. This is the most sales we’ve had in July, in 14 years. In July of 2005, there were 152 sales but back then the median sale price was only $329K. Helping boost sales and prices are lower mortgage rates.

July 2019 was a slower month for the Kelly Broaddus Team compared to the fast and furious closings of the past 3 months. We were able to help 2 home sellers and 3 homebuyers close on their dream home last month.

MEDIAN HOME PRICE

July housing prices in the greater Flagstaff region hit another new high, with the median sale price coming in at $445K. This is up 16% from July ’18. The average price paid per-square-foot this July was $224.00 which is not quite the high, that being $227psf in ’06.

US Home Prices were up year-over-year for the seventh month in a row. The CoreLogic Home Price Index for June 2019 showed that Arizona home prices increased 5.8% from a year ago.

RECESSION FEARS

What Effect Could a Recession Have on U.S. Real Estate? Realtor.com Chief Economist Danielle Hale addresses what, if any, effect that would have on the housing market. 

 

There is a very good possibility we're going to have a recession in the next 18 months. Of course, we’re not going to be able to keep on going with this recovery forever. Are we going to see a repeat of 2008 where home prices drop 19.7 percent? Short answer is NO.

The same people that projected the recession was coming also said prices are not going to depreciate. Appreciation is going to decelerate, but prices are still going to go up. So, the crash that we saw in 2008 - the people actually predicting the recession are saying we’re not going to see that again. All we’re going to see is a slowdown in the amount or the percentage that homes are going up, not that they’re going to depreciate.

And Morgan Housel, a well-renowned financial analyst - I like what he said: “An interesting thing is the widespread assumption that the next recession will be as bad as 2008. Natural to think that way, but, statistically, highly unlikely. Could be over before you realized it began.”

July 2019 Flagstaff Market Watch Summary

2019 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Home Sales -   145 homes (SF),   up 28% vs July 2018. 

Median Home Price -  $445,000 (SF),   vs July 2018

Mortgage rates  - A 30 year fixed rate mortgage with 5% down and very good credit is now at an average of 3.85%

Longest days on market (SF):  521 days

CDOM The acronym CDOM (Cumulative Days on Market) is used by the Flagstaff MLS to describe how many days a property has been available for sale. A property has to be off the MLS for at least 90 days for the CDOM to restart, even if it is listed by a different agent. We report the average days on market for properties sold based on CDOM.

The number of days a home sits on the market can tell us a lot about pricing. A high CDOM is commonly a strong indicator that the home is overpriced. 

Flagstaff's Priciest Homes SOLD in JULY 2019

  • $1,715,000  - Beautiful custom luxury cabin in Forest Highlands with 4568 sq ft of space
  • $529,205  -  Last month's priciest townhome is another 3 bedroom townhome in the Switzer Mesa area, new build, master on the main, open layout with gorgeous mountain views 
  • $243,000 -  2 bedroom Aspen Village condo located off of Lake Mary Rd. This condo is close to NAU, CCC, downtown Flagstaff, shopping and hiking trails!

  • $150,000 - One-bedroom single-family in the White Horse Park area. This beautiful rustic cabin in the shadow of Humphrey's Peak can be a getaway in the summer or a year-round home

Flagstaff Home Buyer Advice 

Recession Not Equal To Housing Crisis

In the last recession, prices drop 19.7 percent. But, if we look at the four previous recessions, three of the four times, prices went up, two of those three times, they went up almost double the normal historical average, and the other time that it dropped, priced dropped, they dropped by less than two percent. 

Buyers can expect higher prices. However, interest rates remain in your favor. After several weeks of significant declines, mortgage rates increased moderately last week by .16%. However, this just brings us back to the same level we were at three weeks ago; with rates almost 1.0% lower than they were at the start of the year. Here's what you need to know about the mortgage process.

 

INVENTORY levels have risen but not by much, hovering at 3- 4 months supply. Many buyers are wondering where to find affordable houses for sale in today’s market. It’s a true dilemma. We see an increase in buyer demand, but the supply available for purchase isn’t keeping up. 

Check out the latest list of Flagstaff homes for sale under $300K. There are 120+ houses available in the $300K to $400,000 range and 60+ houses available to purchase in the $400K to $450K range. If you’re buying at the lower price range, having fewer homes on the market could present a few challenges. Don’t worry! I can help you come up with a strategy to find your next home. Let's talk about your situation in person! Call Kelly at 888.446.5602

5 Step Strategy for Downsizing Your Northern Arizona Home

Kelly Broaddus  |  eXp Realty  |  888.446.5602  | Contact Kelly

5 Step Strategy for Downsizing Your Home

In our “bigger is better” culture, there’s an expectation that each home should be larger and grander than the last. But life changes like divorce, kids leaving for college, or even the simple act of growing older can prompt us to find a smaller home that better suits our shifting needs and lifestyle.

 

In fact, the advantages of downsizing are being increasingly recognized. A “tiny house movement” has gained passionate advocates who appreciate the benefits of living simply at any age and stage of life. Not only does a smaller home typically cost less, it also takes less time and effort to maintain.1

 

Whatever your reasons are for downsizing, the process can seem overwhelming. That’s why we’ve outlined five steps to guide you on your journey. And in the end, we hope you’ll find that less is more … more comfort, more security, and more time and energy to spend on the activities and the people that you love.

 

5 STEPS TO DOWNSIZING SUCCESS

 

1. Determine Your Goals and Limitations

The first step is to figure out your goals for your new living environment. Do you want to live closer to family? Are you hoping to cut down on home maintenance? Are you looking for a community with certain amenities?

 

You should also consider any limitations that will impact the home you choose. For example, are stairs an issue? Do you need access to medical care? In the case of divorce, are there child-custody issues you need to take into account?

 

Estimate how long you plan to stay in your new home. Do you expect your needs to change during that time?

 

Make a “wish list” of features and prioritize them from most to least important. If you’d like any assistance with this process, give us a call! We’d be happy to sit down with you for a free consultation. We can also help you assess the value of your current home so you can set a realistic budget for your new one.

 

2. Find the Perfect New Flagstaff/Sedona Home

Once you’ve established your “wish list,” we can begin the search for your new home. As local market experts, we know the ins and outs of all the top communities in our area. We can help you determine the neighborhood and type of home that will best fit your wants and needs.

 

From family neighborhoods to retirement communities, we serve clients in all stages of life. If you or a loved one are in need of extended support, we can also share our knowledge of the assisted living facilities in town and help you identify those that offer the optimal level of care.

 

Are you planning to relocate out of town? We can refer you to a trusted real estate professional in your target area who can help you with your search.

 

3. Sell Your Current Flagstaff/Sedona Home

If you’re ready to sell your current home, we’ll begin the process of preparing to list it as we search for your new one.

 

We have a special interest in helping homeowners who are facing major life transitions, and we offer a full-service real estate experience that aims to remove as much of the stress and hassle of selling your home as possible. We also understand that many of our clients choose to downsize for financial reasons, so we employ tactics and strategies to maximize the potential sales revenue of your home.

 

We do this by employing our proven three-part approach, which focuses on optimum preparation, pricing, and promotion. As part of that plan, we invest in an aggressive marketing strategy that utilizes online and social media platforms to connect with consumers and offline channels to connect with local real estate agents. This ensures your property gets maximum exposure to prospective buyers.

 

4. Sort and Pack Your Belongings

Even before you find your new home, you can begin preparing for your move. A smaller home means less space for your furniture and other possessions, so you will need to decide what to keep and what to sell or donate. Sorting through an entire house full of belongings will take time, so begin as early as possible.

 

Parting with personal possessions can be an extremely emotional process. Start with a small, unemotional space like a laundry or powder room and work your way up to larger rooms. Focus on eliminating duplicates and anything you don’t regularly use. If you have sentimental pieces, family heirlooms, or just useful items you no longer need, think about who in your life would benefit from having them. For large collections, consider keeping one or two favorite pieces and photographing the rest to put in an album.2

 

Make sure the items you keep help you achieve the goals you outlined in Step 1. For example, if you want a home that’s easier to clean, cut down on knickknacks that require frequent dusting. If you’re moving to be closer to your grandchildren, choose the shatterproof plates over the antique china.

 

Allow yourself time to take breaks if you start to feel overwhelmed. If you’re helping a loved one with a move, try to be a patient listener if they want to stop and share stories about particular items or memories throughout the process.3 This can be therapeutic for them and an opportunity for you to learn family history that may otherwise have been forgotten.

 

5. Get Help When You Need It

Moving is stressful in any situation. But if you’re downsizing due to health issues or a major life change, it can be an especially tough transition. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

 

Seek out friends and family members who can assist with packing and decluttering. If that’s not an option, or if you need additional help, consider hiring a home organizer, full-service moving company, or even a senior move manager, which is a professional who assists older adults and their families with the physical and emotional aspects of relocation.4

 

 You can find one accredited by the National Association of Senior Move Managers at https://www.nasmm.org/find/index.cfm.

 

If financial constraints are holding back, let us know. We can help you explore the possibility of tapping into the equity in your current home now. That way you can afford to get the assistance you need to make your transition as smooth as possible.

 

ARE YOU LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE?

 

If your current Northern Arizona home no longer suits your needs, maybe it’s time to consider a change. We would love to help you explore your options. Contact us today to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation. Call 888.446.5602 or email kelly.broaddus@exprealty.com
