Existing Home Sales Slow Against Tight Inventory

by Christie Cannon

Based on the National Association of REALTOR's latest September numbers, the pace of home sales has slowed; however, the year over year gains continue for the 11th month.

Homeowners' Perception of Value - Outpacing Market?

by Christie Cannon

For the 6th month in a row, the gap between how homeowner & appraiser view value has widened according to Quicken Loan's Home Price Perception Index.

According to Quicken's Chief Economist Bob Walters: "Many homeowners around the country are seeing the national headlines about home value increases and they are optimistic about their equity increasing. While some areas are seeing the same level of home appreciation, or even more, there are also some areas that have slower home value increases. This can lead to homeowners and appraisers not quite seeing eye-to-eye.”

Even a few months ago we were seeing appraisal issues affect pending home sales. As Walters explains, this is in part due greater balance returning to home value appreciation. "Many homeowners around the country are seeing the national headlines about home value increases and they are optimistic about their equity increasing," said Quicken Loans Chief Economist Bob Walters. "While some areas are seeing the same level of home appreciation, or even more, there are also some areas that have slower home value increases. This can lead to homeowners and appraisers not quite seeing eye-to-eye."


In North TX, while home owners continue to enjoy record appreciation, real estate pros & home owners must remain cognizant of the subtle shifts in appreciation rates that are often masked in the market's excitement. Likewise, agents & owners truely need to be prepared to sell every home twice!

Home Value Predictions for the Next 5-Years

by Christie Cannon

Home Values: Where Are They Headed in the Next 5 Years? | Keeping Current Matters

Today, many real estate conversations center on housing prices and where they may be headed. That is why we like the Home Price Expectation Survey.

Every quarter, Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists about where prices are headed over the next five years. They then average the projections of all 100+ experts into a single number.

The results of their latest survey

  • Home values will appreciate by 4.1% in 2015.
  • The cumulative appreciation will be 18.1% by 2019.
  • That means the average annual appreciation will be 3.4% over the next 5 years.
  • Even the experts making up the most bearish quartile of the survey still are projecting a cumulative appreciation of 10.5% by 2019.

Buyer Demand Remains High

by Christie Cannon

The price of any item is determined by the supply of that item, and the market demand. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently released their latest Existing Home Sales Report.

Inventory Levels & Demand

Sales of existing homes rose 3.2% from May, outpacing year-over-year figures for the ninth consecutive month. Total unsold housing inventory is at a 5.0-month supply.

This is down from May’s 5.1-month supply and remains below the 6 months that is needed for a historically normal market.

Consumer confidence is at the highest level in over a decade. Pair that with interest rates still around 4%, new programs available for down payments as low as 3%, and you have an attractive market for buyers.

Buyer demand for housing surged to it’s highest level since June 2013.

Prices Rising

June marked the 40th consecutive month of year-over-year price gains as the median price of existing homes sold rose to $236,400 (up 6.5% from 2014).

So What Does This Mean?

The chart below shows the impact that inventory levels have on home prices.

Inventory & Pricing | Keeping Current Matters

NAR’s Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun gave some insight into the correlation:

"Limited inventory amidst strong demand continues to push home prices higher, leading to declining affordability for prospective buyers."

NAR’s President, Chris Polychron added:

"The demand for buying has really heated up this summer, leading to multiple bidders and homes selling at or above asking price."

Bottom Line

If you are debating putting your home on the market in 2015, now may be the time. The number of buyers ready and willing to make a purchase is at the highest level in years. Contact a local professional in your area to get the process started.
