A Majority of Consumers Say It’s a Good Time To Sell Your House

If you’re a homeowner thinking about selling your house, you’re probably looking for the best time to make your move. That means you’re likely balancing a number of factors, like your changing needs, where you’ll go when you sell, and today’s mortgage rates in order to time it just right.

According to recent data, that sweet spot could already be here. The latest Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI) by Fannie Mae finds that 76% of consumers believe now is a good time to sell.

The graph below shows the percentage of survey respondents who say it’s a good time to sell a house. The big dip in March and April of 2020 reflects how consumer sentiment dropped at the beginning of the pandemic as uncertainty about the health crisis grew. Since then, the percentage has grown consistently as more people feel confident it’s a good time to sell.

In fact, survey respondents think it’s an even better time to sell a house today than they did in 2019, which was a strong year for the housing market. The latest survey results indicate one of the strongest peaks in seller sentiment in nearly three years (see graph below):

A Majority of Consumers Say It’s a Good Time To Sell Your House | Keeping Current Matters

What Makes Today a Good Time To Sell?

One reason so many people think it’s a good time to sell is because there are still more buyers in today’s market than there are homes for sale. That’s driving home prices up, making it a good time to sell your house.

And if you’re on the fence about whether or not to sell because you don’t know where you’ll go once you do, know that you might have more options today than in previous months. That’s because the number of homes coming onto the market has grown each month since the start of the year. When more homes come onto the market, it gives you more opportunities to find one that meets your changing needs.

Bottom Line

While the number of homes available for sale is growing and giving you more options for your move, inventory is still low overall. That could mean it’s a great time for you to sell. If you’re ready to address your changing needs and take advantage of today’s favorable conditions, contact The Caton Team

Home Price Deceleration Doesn’t Mean Home Price Depreciation

I had to share this article the moment I saw it – so important to know the difference….

Home Price Deceleration Doesn’t Mean Home Price Depreciation

Experts in the real estate industry use a number of terms when they talk about what’s happening with home prices. And some of those words sound a bit similar but mean very different things. To help clarify what’s happening with home prices and where experts say they’re going, here’s a look at a few terms you may hear:

  • Appreciation is when home prices increase.
  • Depreciation is when home prices decrease.
  • Deceleration is when home prices continue to appreciate, but at a slower pace.

Where Home Prices Have Been in Recent Years

For starters, you’ve probably heard home prices have skyrocketed over the past two years, but homes were actually appreciating long before that. You might be surprised to learn that home prices have climbed for 122 consecutive months (see graph below):

Home Price Deceleration Doesn’t Mean Home Price Depreciation | Keeping Current Matters

As the graph shows, houses have gained value consistently over the past 10 consecutive years. But since 2020, the increase has been more dramatic as home price growth accelerated.

So why did home prices climb so much? It’s because there were more buyers than there were homes for sale. That imbalance put upward pressure on home prices because demand was high and supply was low.

Where Experts Say Home Prices Are Going

While this is helpful context, if you’re a buyer or seller in today’s market, you probably want to know what’s going to happen with home prices moving forward. Will they continue that same growth path or will home prices fall?

Experts are forecasting ongoing appreciation, just at a decelerated pace. In other words, prices will keep climbing, just not as fast as they have been. The graph below shows home price forecasts from seven industry leaders. None are calling for prices to fall (see graph below):

Home Price Deceleration Doesn’t Mean Home Price Depreciation | Keeping Current Matters

Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American, identifies a key reason why home prices won’t depreciate or drop:

“In today’s housing market, demand for homes continues to outpace supply, which is keeping the pressure on house prices, so don’t expect house prices to decline.”

And although housing supply is starting to tick up, it’s not enough to make home prices decline because there’s still a gap between the number of homes available for sale and the volume of buyers looking to make a purchase.

Terry Loebs, Founder of the research firm Pulsenomics, notes that most real estate experts and economists anticipate home prices will continue rising. As he puts it:

“With home values at record-high levels and a vast majority of experts projecting additional price increases this year and beyond, home prices and expectations remain buoyant.”

Bottom Line

Experts forecast price deceleration, not depreciation. That means home prices will continue to rise, just at a slower pace. Got questions – reach out to The Caton Team to get a full picture of what’s happening with home prices in our local market and to discuss your buying and selling goals.

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.

4 REASONS WE’LL SEE MORE REAL ESTATE ACTIVITY THIS WINTER

Inventory. This one word has a big impact on pretty much every factor of the real estate market.

In the past year, inventory has continued its trend of record low numbers, driving up demand, home prices, and buyer frustration along with it.

But, new data suggests that this winter may see a flurry of new homes for sale. That’s big news for clients who have put off making a move in the last year.

Let’s dive into the four reasons we may see more real estate activity soon and what this means for you and your clients.

There is pent up demand among sellers

For the past 10 years, people have been living in their homes longer than the historical average. Since 2010, the average tenure in a home has been about 10 years. However, we are now seeing that shift.

Plus, new research indicates that homeowners thinking about selling are about to put their homes on the market this winter instead of waiting until the spring.

Of homeowners planning to enter the market in the next year:

  • 65% – Have just listed (19%) or plan to list this winter
  • 93% – Have already taken steps toward listing their home, including working with an agent (28%)
  • 36% – Have researched the value of their home and others in their neighborhood

With all this data, agents should be prepared to help both buyers and sellers navigate another busy winter in 2022.

Homeowners are sitting on record levels of equity

Today’s homeowners are sitting on a whole lot of equity.

According to a recent report, the average homeowner gained about $56,700 in equity over the past year.

That’s a big incentive for many homeowners to make a move into a home that better fits their needs.

Educating your clients on their equity, and the options it gives them to upgrade or downsize their home, might be just the motivation they need to sell their home and buy one that better fits their needs.

Home has taken on a new meaning

There’s no questioning it. Life today looks a lot different than it did in January 2020.

While most of us have spent the better part of the last two years in our homes, it’s made us take a long, hard look at what we really want and need out of our dwellings.

Plus, a recent poll indicates that home has taken on a new meaning for many American homeowners.

According to the study, the top reasons sellers want to move are:

  • 33% – They have realized they want different home features
  • 37% – They say their home no longer meets their family’s needs
  • 32% – They want to move closer to friends and family
  • 23% – They are looking for a home office

And with mortgage rates on the rise, experts anticipate sellers may be more inclined to start the search for that perfect home sooner than later.

It is now cheaper to own than rent

Rental prices have been on a steady incline for the last twenty years, and that isn’t expected to change anytime soon. 

According to a recent report by Apartmentlist.com: 

“Since January of this year, the national median rent has increased by a staggering 16.4 percent. To put that in context, rent growth from January to September averaged just 3.4 percent in the pre-pandemic years from 2017-2019.”

While most renters think that it’s the cheaper option, we have three words for them: fixed-rate mortgage. As rent continues to appreciate (with no end in sight), homeowners can lock in a payment for the next 15-30 years with little change on their monthly amount due. 

However, the biggest incentive for renters to buy comes down to equity. For every monthly mortgage payment made, they’re investing into their financial future. And that equity also continues to build over years of home price appreciation. 

To put it plainly, whether you’re a renter or a buyer, you’re paying a mortgage. But you definitely have a lot more financial advantages when it’s your own. 

BOTTOM LINE

The 2022 housing market is set to begin with a bang, and the agents who succeed will be the ones who are prepared to take immediate action.

Today’s market conditions mean that we’re probably headed for yet another busy winter season, with real estate experts suggesting there may be even more activity in 2022.
