So Cal Real Estate Market Beat

Red dots are all over the graph.

For the 3rd week in a row we see a decline in active listings on the market in So Cal. We also notice a drop in new listings in 5 out of 6 counties in So Cal.  Closings also dropped in all 6 counties and so did the number of days on the market for closings.  One can interpret the latter as positive news, but it can also be a sign of slowing down and lenders and service providers catching up with their overwhelming amount of business.

Despite the slowdown across every category, there is a healthy inventory of active listings in So Cal. The interest rates are still very low and a buyer frenzy in almost every corner of the market.

The winter is here, not literally, but is close, we went through an intense election week with pandemic is still in place (hopefully not for long). 

Are you seller? Consider selling now.

Are you a buyer? If you are buying for personal use, find the house you like, take advantage of the low rates and go for it. Are you think of buying for investment? Unless you are buying it from a distressed seller, think twice.

California Buyers Still Can’t Afford Homes

The issue for California residential real estate remains the same. Poor affordability means that despite latent demand, buyers can’t afford the prices of homes in the Golden State. For that reason, many have left to find much cheaper homes in other states. Unemployment will likely be on the rise along with lower business profitability (tech sector continues to lay off workers) which means fewer buyers are likely for 3 to 6 months.

The stronger consumer optimism is running against sticky inflation and a likelihood the FED can’t lower interest rates. But will that discourage buyers in California? Demand is always intense in CA. No other place offers what California has, and buyers today do seem to put lifestyle at the top of their list.

5 Trends That Will Shape Luxury Real Estate in 2023

The luxury housing market, like most other real estate sectors, is adjusting to a slowdown. Affordability and home size are every bit as much on wealthy buyers’ minds as other consumers. “The reality is we are coming out of one of the best real estate markets in history,” Gary Gold, a luxury property specialist with Coldwell Banker Realty in Beverly Hills, Calif., notes in the latest Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Trends Report. “But that level of demand and price appreciation wasn’t sustainable.”

Nearly 90% of respondents to the Coldwell Banker survey say they believe the real estate market will be better than or the same as 2022 for property investment. The following emerging trends were noted in the report.
