How 3 Recent Bank Failures Could Impact Housing Market – From Realtor.com

The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and others may drive mortgage rates lower, says NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun.

The demise of three banks last week has been sending shockwaves through an already fragile economy. Could it have an impact on real estate, too?

“The Silicon Valley Bank failure, along with a few other banks, means that the Federal Reserve cannot be so aggressive in raising its short-term interest rates,” says Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of REALTORS®. “Therefore, mortgage rates will decline.”

Mortgage rates had been steadily rising in recent weeks, with the 30-year fixed-rate loan averaging 6.73% last week, according to Freddie Mac. The Fed has been making a series of aggressive rate increases, which may indirectly influence mortgage rates, over the last few months. Home buyers have been up against affordability woes, as mortgage rates are nearly double what they were just a year ago.

But as of Monday, mortgage rates had fallen about 50 basis points lower than last week. Yun says that when there is a panic in the financial market, investors often shift money toward safer assets, which tends to be U.S. Treasury notes and bonds. Mortgage rates lately have tended to follow the movement of Treasury yields, which are falling.

“So, a panic in a sense leads to an automatic stimulus to the economy from lower interest rates,” Yun says in public comments on LinkedIn. “The housing sector nearly always responds to falling mortgage rates, especially when there are job additions to the economy.” And if rates do head lower, more home buyers undoubtedly would still enter the housing market in response, he adds.

Bank Failures Spark Panic

Last Friday, the shutdown of Silicon Valley Bank became the second largest bank failure in U.S. history and the largest since the 2008 financial crisis. The bank was known as a large supporter of tech startups. About 15% of the loans in Silicon Valley Bank’s portfolio were residential and commercial mortgages, The Real Deal reported. Signature Bank and Silvergate Capital, both big lenders in the cryptocurrency space, also shuttered their doors.

To help avoid mass panic, the Federal Reserve, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and Treasury Department created an emergency program to backstop all deposits using the Fed’s emergency lending authority. That granted depositors full access to their funds as of Monday, and the agencies vowed to make all depositors whole. Usually, banks only insure up to $250,000 per account ownership category through the FDIC, an agency that was created in 1933 after thousands of bank failures. In this case, the federal government’s move to backstop uninsured money has been viewed as an unusual step.

President Joe Biden has been offering assurance to Americans that banks are safe. He vowed on Monday to “strengthen oversight and regulations of larger banks so that we are not in this position again.”Meanwhile, the bank failures may be a sign of trouble ahead for the tech industry. “Some businesses reliant on funding from Silicon Valley Bank [and others] may lack capital to continue its business or have to cut back,” Yun says. There could be some job losses ahead as a result, especially among some California tech companies, he adds. Local housing markets may be hampered by those job losses. But “broadly across the country,” Yun says, “more home buyers will enter the market [because of] lower mortgage rates.”

Real Estate Forecast for 2023…

It’s the hottest topic in my life – where is the market headed in 2023? With another interest rate increase coming – I know my buyers are cringing as they figure out their next steps and some of my sellers are getting ready to list before the market adjusts too much. I thought I’d share this article from Wells Fargo…

Housing Outlook 2023

The recent rise in mortgage rates has deflated optimism for a robust recovery in home sales. Even if higher in the near term, we currently expect mortgage rates to trend lower over the course of this year and next.

Affordability stands to improve slightly this year. While financing costs are likely to remain elevated, easing inflation should help boost real income growth.

Home prices declining should provide an additional boost to affordability. We continue to expect home prices to register year-over-year declines in 2023, with the national median existing single-family home price anticipated to fall 4.5% during the year.

Slightly more favorable affordability conditions should help home sales stabilize and even improve a bit this year. That said, we expect the overall pace of activity to remain sluggish.

While sales should be more lively in 2023 compared to the second half of last year, there is another potential challenge waiting down the road. Our current macroeconomic forecast calls for a mild recession to begin in the second half of 2023. Unfortunately, even mild downturns bring about rising unemployment, decreased job security and a slowdown in household formation, all of which would be formidable headwinds for housing.

Builder incentives have proved successful in reigniting new home sales, however, single-family permits continue to trend lower. Stronger new home sales are not likely to translate into a turnaround new development until builder inventories move lower from their currently elevated levels. Consequently, we expect single-family construction to remain relatively slow this year.

Weakening residential activity has not been experienced uniformly across the country. The affordability migration has given way to strong population and employment growth in the South, which has generally bolstered activity in those areas. Conversely, population outflows and tech industry turbulence have led Western markets like Seattle and San Francisco to experience declines in home sales and prices.

Supply is tight almost everywhere, which is helping prevent sharp declines in home values. Broadly speaking, significant inventory shortfalls in the Northeast have helped to shore up prices in 2022. By contrast, higher inventory levels in Mountain West appear to be generating faster price declines.

SOLD: By The Caton Team – San Jose

Sold in San Jose

When our client first reached out to us to sell their San Jose condo – it was in early 2022. By the time we were on the market, it was the summer of 2022 and the market had changed drastically with the uptick in interest rates. But have no fear – The Caton Team is here.

With a market re-evaluation – we priced our condo to gain the most views – and after several showings, we were able to present our seller multiple offers – to ensure they got the best price the current market could hold. A win-win for everyone involved.

Each client is unique, each market is unique – if your goal is to buy or sell California Real Estate – let us be part of your journey.

We love what we do!

The pandemic bought home to the forefront of our minds and our days, our nights, our weekends, our weekdays…

Most of us needed more home – or a home closer to family – or a home office for that matter. There were a million reasons to move and when the time came – so grateful that our clients called us – The Caton Team – to orchestrate this particular endeavor.

Our clients, then “trapped” out of state, realized how wonderful it was to be close to family. So they never came back. Popped the key in the mail and let me live out my Real Estate fantasies – to prepare a home from start to finish. Selling Palmer Ave in Belmont for these clients – is truly a peak in my career.

How often does a Realtor get to have it all? I mean – everything. From helping them hire movers to pack up their whole lives. To working with a painter and the best part – picking out the colors. My clients gave me carte blanche and it was awesome.

Mindful of the budget, it was a joy to show off this home as the gem it was.
With the help of our amazing decorator, The Caton Team picked out new colors for the whole home, new fixtures, and new landscaping while our stager wowed us with her style, and our photographer captured every angle, inside and out, in 3D, in HD.

After two weeks on the market, we presented 26 eye-popping offers to our clients – and wowed them with overbidding that tallied $700,000.

Please enjoy these photos of this thrilling pandemic experience that will go down in my history books and know – no job is too big or too small – if you need a Realtor team that takes care of YOU – contact The Caton Team. We love what we do – what can we do for you?
