SOLD in Daly City by The Caton Team

We love what we do – so when our clients called with the news – it was time to sell – you better believe that kicked The Caton Team into high gear. Thank you Tonton and Angela for trusting your first home purchase and now your first home sale with The Caton Team!

When our past clients reached out to sell the condo we helped them buy – The Caton Team was so excited. We know what it takes to sell property in Silicon Valley. Wonderful photography, 3D tours, and easy access. After 12 days on the market, and 2 weekends of open houses we received a total of 4 offers and one outshined them all. Working closing with the buyer’s agents – we made dreams come true. So grateful for this opportunity.

PENDING in San Francisco

Pending feels so good – because we are one step closer to our client’s goal. Once an offer is accepted the real work begins – and The Caton Team is here for all of it.

We had the joy of meeting our awesome clients and instantly clicked. With an underwritten approval in hand, we jumped into the thick of it. Homes were selling while we stood in them. It was intense. When we did get to write an offer – we were blown away by the level of competition. Then ‘the one’ came on, armed with experience we worked with our clients to determine the best course of action. With their trust and our knowledge – together – we made Real Estate goals come true.

Report Shows ‘Double Trouble’ for Housing

I love sharing articles that discuss the hottest topic in my career – the market.

Record-high home prices and record-low inventories, a combination labeled “double trouble” by analysts, are growing roadblocks for many Americans to achieve homeownership, particularly for Black Americans, according to a new analysis from the National Association of REALTORS® and realtor.com®. The newly released report, The Double Trouble of the Housing Market,”examines the impacts of rapidly rising home prices and low inventories on housing affordability.

About 400,000 fewer affordable homes are available for sale for households earning $75,000 to $100,000 compared to before the pandemic began, according to the study. There’s one affordable listing available for every 65 households, a notable decrease in availability from one affordable listing for every 24 households in 2019 for this income segment, the study says.

Home prices have risen by double-digit gains over the past year. Nationwide, the total home valuation has surged by $8.1 trillion from the first quarter of 2020 through the end of 2021.

“The housing wealth gain has been sizable over the past two years,” says Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist. “However, due to the ongoing inventory shortage and rising interest rates, homeownership attainment will become especially challenging unless drastically more housing supply is available.”

The low-inventory challenge is “particularly acute for some racial and ethnic groups who have faced greater hurdles to homeownership stemming from, among other things, lower incomes as a group,” adds Danielle Hale, realtor.com®’s chief economist.

Rising home prices and record-low numbers of homes for sale have made it increasingly difficult for Black Americans to achieve homeownership, according to the report. Since 2017, the annual homeownership rate for White Americans has remained above 70%. But the homeownership rate for Black Americans has been only about 40%—some 30 percentage points lower. 

NAR and realtor.com®’s report analyzed housing affordability by racial group to help explain the possible differences in homeownership. They found that 35% of White households but only 20% of Black households have incomes greater than $100,000. However, about half of all homes currently listed for sale—51%—are affordable only to households with at least $100,000 income. A significant and persistent racial homeownership gap exists in America, the report says. Despite the challenges, though, Black Americans are finding a path to homeownership in some markets like Baltimore, Memphis, Tenn., and St. Louis. 

“There are affordable markets that still provide opportunities to achieve homeownership as inventory at affordable price points is reasonably available,” says Yun.

NAR Calls for More to Be Done

To increase the nation’s housing inventory, NAR has advocated for lawmakers to:

  • Include funding for affordable housing construction
  • Preserve, expand, and create tax incentives to renovate distressed properties
  • Convert unused commercial space to residential units
  • Encourage and incentivize zoning reform

Further, expanding new-home construction by an additional 550,000 units a year for 10 years would create 2.8 million new jobs and generate more than $400 billion in economic activity, NAR says. A separate report conducted by NAR and the Rosen Consulting Group, Housing is Critical Infrastructure: Social and Economic Benefits of Building More Housing, examines the causes of America’s housing shortage and provides a range of actions that can effectively address this longtime problem.

THE COST OF WAITING

Realizing it’s time to buy a home is an exciting and scary moment. That’s why The Caton Team is here to guide our clients through the Bay Area Real Estate market.

Today’s topic – The Cost of Waiting – is something most buyers do not consider when first looking into Real Estate investing.

Buying the dream home is not a linear journey. Getting into the dream home is a stepping stone process of Real Estate investments. All in the name of equity.

Equity is earned over time and through updating a property. It’s the money ‘in’ your home. That future value minus the mortgage is the profit that turns into the downpayment for the next, bigger, and better Real Estate Investment. 

Often buyers will consider waiting until they can afford the home they really want, instead of buying something smaller – here’s where things get real. 

The Bay Area is one of the most expensive Real Estate in the country. Properties are selling in less than a week, significantly over list price, with multiple offers – repeatedly. This not only creates an appraisal lag but also a savings nightmare.

My point is – California Real Estate has appreciated since 1849. There are and will be ups and downs through the years, but overall its constant trajectory is up.

What does that mean if today you’re thinking about buying Bay Area Real Estate today?

Do it.

Invest in the best place within budget, in the best area possible – improve the property, and over time it will earn equity. Equity is the stuff dreams are made of.

Because trying to out-save the market is impracticable, the only way to do so is to own and earn equity.

With the most affordable market, Alameda County, seeing $300,000 in appreciation from January 2020 to March 2021 – it’s a tall order to expect anyone to save faster than the current market is appreciating. This means – if a buyer waits – they could wait themselves out of the market.

Here’s some food for thought; data for San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Alameda Counties.

Values are from January 2020 and March 2021.

San Francisco: $ 1,668,000 / $1,687,000 – Average appreciation of $19,000 – Peaking at $ 1,835,000 in June 2020. *(This average is skewed due to the diversity of the city. For more detailed information please reach out.)

San Mateo: $ 1,881,000 / $2,453,000 – Average appreciation of $572,000 – Peaking at $2,453,000 in March of 2021. 

Santa Clara: $ 1,454,000 / $1,936,000 – Average appreciation of $482,000 – Peaking at $1,926,000 in March of 2021.

Alameda: $968,000 / $1.275,000 – Average appreciation of $ 307,000 – Peaking at $ 1,275,000 in March of 2021. 

Real Estate wealth is made over time with sage wisdom. The Caton Team believes in the power of homeownership to create long-term security and wealth. Each client is unique and each opporunity different. If you’re considering a sale or purchase of Real Estate in the Bay Area – you need a full-time, professional Realtor to guide you. The Caton Team would love to interview for the job as your Realtor Team – please reach out at your convenience.

Are Low Mortgage Rates to Blame for High Home Prices?

Double-digit price increases for homes are not exactly what most people in real estate predicted to occur in a recession. But could low mortgage rates—the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage hit a record-low average of 2.81% last week—be partially to blame?

“The combination of what could be the lowest mortgage rates of our lifetimes, a paucity of inventory, and a desperate rush of buyers has resulted in median home list prices hitting new records,” realtor.com® reports.

Home prices were 12.2% higher for the week ending Oct. 10 than they were a year ago,  realtor.com® data shows.

“It’s unprecedented for us to get a massive run-up in home prices during a recession,” says Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “It’s clear that [mortgage] rates matter even more than unemployment rates.”

Low mortgage rates are helping buyers afford higher home prices, and they’re creating a buying frenzy in the housing market to lock in such low rates. Home buyers purchasing a median-priced home at about $350,000 still pay about $80 less than if they purchased a median-priced home of $315,000 last year at a higher interest rate average of 3.69%, a realtor.com® analysis shows.

Affordability goes up with low mortgage rates. However, home buyers do need a higher down payment as prices rise.

High home prices with high mortgage rates, on the other hand, is not a good combo, housing analysts point out. Ali Wolf, chief economist of Zonda, told realtor.com® that if mortgage rates go up by even a half-point, hundreds of thousands of buyers may no longer be able to purchase a home. First-time buyers, who tend to have smaller budgets, likely would experience the biggest repercussion.

But many economists are predicting mortgage rates to stay low in 2021. In the meantime, home prices likely will remain elevated because buyer demand remains high and inventories remain stretched thin.
