Q1 Economic Report – San Diego Market Report 5/17/19

Farmer’s Market at Bernardo Winery

Sales in Q1 are Up
Our Windermere Chief Economist, Matthew Gardner has published his 2019 Q1 Housing Report.
Although prices decreased by 10.5% from the first quarter in 2018, the number of sales were slightly up by 1.3%.
Average days on market also increased from 29 to 37 days during the quarter, here in San Diego County. Despite this slight increase (which is more of a return to normal market time) San Diego homes continued to sell faster than any other county in Southern California during the period.
As always, we work hard to serve our clients the way that they want to be served.

Spring Market – San Diego Market Report 4/12/19

New Banner for Garza Homes
Thinking of Buying or Selling, call us (858) 752-7004
The current state of the market is healthy. Although the Average Days on the Market for properties has increased and transactions have come down, prices remain higher than the previous month and year.
This translates to a more sustainable or “flat” market. Homeowners will still see appreciation in the value of their homes, just not at the rapid rate that they have gotten used to over the last 8 years.
Patient buyers can still find homes at a great price, but sellers can also realize significant gains when they sell.
Be sure to check out the current market activity, to see for yourself, if you haven’t already.
Let us know if you see anything on the market of interest to you, or if you’d like to discuss selling…

We Appreciate You – San Diego Market Report 3/29/19

Friends, Family, & Clients Event
Thinking of Buying or Selling, call us (858) 752-7004
On March 22nd, we held our spring client and friends appreciation event at our office in Rancho Bernardo.
The idea was to spend a nice evening, enjoying the company of a few friends, family, and clients who support us throughout the year.
There was plenty of fresh barbeque from Big Dev’s “Down’Home” Barbeque & Catering, along with an open bar. And the kids enjoyed pizza and dessert.
As we said to those who were able to attend, we truly appreciate our relationships with each of you, your belief in us, and our opportunity to help as many families as possible.
Thank You!

Best Time to Buy or Sell – 92127 Market Report 2/15/19

Just for the record…
It doesn’t matter to us when you buy or sell. Our goal is to help you when the time comes and it feels right for you.
With that being said, NOW is a great time of year to buy or sell a property.
Why?
1) Mortgage rates continue to be at a 12 month low. So far this year the 30 year fixed rate has averaged 4.44%, compared to 4.54% for all of 2018.
This can benefit buyers and sellers, as it should help encourage more qualified buyers to get in the game and make legitimate purchase offers.
2) Our Spring Rush of market activity normally hits around late March to mid July.
As a seller, you want to be ON the market and at the RIGHT price, BEFORE this rush of activity hits. Because once it’s gone and the excitement is over, that could be it for the height of the annual cycle…
So, if you want to take advantage of the best time of year to list your property, just reply to this email and we will be happy to discuss pricing strategy and options with you.

Current Mortgage Rates – 92127 Market Report 2/8/19

We often get asked how mortgage rates are. As you may know, they are constantly changing, but have remained historically low as of late.
According to one of our loan officers at LendUS, the European Central Bank recently put out a report expressing concern over the current economic slowdown in Germany.
This slowdown has actually caused a ripple effect, in which more U.S. bonds are being bought, and mortgage rates are reduced.
Of course this is how things stand at the moment. Only time will tell whether or not that will continue.
Rates as of 2-7-19:
Conventional 30 year: 4.625%
FHA: 4.125%
VA: 4.125%
Conventional High Balance: 4.5%
FHA: 4.375%
VA: 4.375%
         5/1 4.0%
         7/1 4.0%
JUMBO 30: 4.5% Interest Only Option: 4.625%
5/1 ARM 3.875% Interest Only Option: 4.5%
7/1 ARM 4.0% Interest Only Option: 4.5%

2019 Housing Forecast – 92127 Market Report 2/1/19

At Windermere Homes & Estates, we are fortunate to have a Chief Economist, Matthew Gardner, on staff.
He recently published his annual forecast for 2019.
A few of his thoughts:
1) Home prices nationally will rise by about 4.6%.
2) Mortgage Interest Rates will top out at about 5.5% by the end of 2019 and not rise above 6% until 2020.
3) There will be no housing bubble, but simply a move towards a more balanced and normalized housing market.
More to follow next week, about how this ties into our local market.

2019’s Market Shift – 92127 Market Report 1/11/19

Last year was a great year for Windermere Homes & Estates, as we helped clients close over $1.5 billion in real estate transactions.
Tomorrow marks one year ago, that Tracy and I took advantage of an opportunity to switch brokerages and join the Windermere team.
As second year Realtors at the time, we made our decision because of the company leadership, training, tools, affiliates, and high caliber agents that we would be able to work with.
We couldn’t be more pleased with our decision, which fueled much of our success and positioned us to help more people in 2019.
Picking up where we left off in 2018, we are seeing inventory slack off again. One reason for this could be that sellers who were unsuccessful at the end of the year have decided to pull back for a bit.
For several months, we have seen homes remain on the market longer, and price reductions have become the new norm.
There is no doubt that some type of market shift or correction has already begun. To what extent this shift/correction will run, remains to be seen. Only time will tell…
We will continue providing updates, as we get the information…
