California Real Estate Report 2017 March

California Real Estate Report 2017 March

California Real Estate Report 2017 March

California 2017 March Sales

California’s spring housing market posted a strong start to the year as existing home sales and median home prices registered healthy gains in March 2017 on both a monthly and annual basis, as did every major region in the state of California.

Single Family Sales

  • May 2017 - 389,000 sales
  • Feb  2017 - 401,000 sales
  • March 2017 - 416,000 sales

Median Price

  • May 2017 - $484,000 
  • Feb  2017 - $478,000
  • March 2017 - $517,000 

Regional Sales and Median Price

San Francisco Bay Area’s median price of single family homes was $837,720 increasing 10.1% from last year. Sales in the Bay Area increased 6.4% from last year.

The median price in the Central Valley Region increased 2.3% to $282,230. Sales of existing single family homes in the region increased 0.6% from 2016 at this same time. 

In Southern California the median price of single family homes increased 1.2% from a year ago to $478,730 and sales increased by 6.8% from last year.

San Diego County home prices have been strong but the inventory has been low. There are increasingly large numbers of home buyers looking to buy a home but the inventory has been low to where multiple buyers are writing offers on the good properties and sellers are getting multiple offers on their homes. If you’re buying interest rates are still low but due to rise and if you’re selling your home in San Diego they buyers are out in full force.

If you’re buying or selling real estate in San Diego make sure you give us a call to discuss the market and the opportunities that exist.

Does Home Size Equate to Success

Does Home Size Equate to Success

Does the size of the home you own equal success

One’s sense of self can be important in determining many factors. Here’s how various groups responded when they were asked if they believe having a large or expensive home is a sign of success and accomplishment.

Males answered in the following way:

48% of males said, I don’t but many other people do

Females answered in the following way:

57% of females said, I do and most other people do to

Combined Male and Female Responses by Earning Power:

Earn less than $35k

56% said I don’t but many other people do

Earn $35k to $49k

56% said I don’t but many other people do

Earn $50k to $74k

58% said I don’t but many other people do

Earn more than $75k 

47% said I don’t but many other people do

My opinion on this is that if you own a large or expensive home it would be a sign of success.

I would think, in most cases, in order to get a loan and make payments on such a property would mean that you would have to be successful. If you’re looking to purchase a large expensive home or any home in San Diego County for that matter please give us a call, we would love to help.

People are Moving Less

People are Moving Less

People are Moving Less

Americans are moving at the lowest rate on record.

Why? Compared with earlier generations of young adults Millennials are moving significantly less. 

Percent of 25 to 35 year olds who moved in the previous year:

  • Millennials in 2016: 20%
  • Gen Xers in 2000: 26%
  • Late Boomers in 1990: 27%
  • Early Boomers in 1981: 25%
  • Silents in 1963: 26%

Percent of 25 to 35 year old movers who were living in owner occupied homes following their move:

  • Millennials in 2016: 22%
  • Gen Xers in 2000: 34%
  • Late Boomers in 1990: 29%
  • Early Boomers in 1981: 35%

Percent of 25 to 35 year old movers who were living in rental property following their move:

  • Millennials in 2016: 74%
  • Gen Xers in 2000: 62%
  • Late Boomers in 1990: 67%
  • Early Boomers in 1981: 61%

From looking at this data it seems to me that it may be more a sign of the times than it is the choices of the Millennials. The economy and job market over the past 8 years has not been good. Many Millennials have not been able to find good jobs after they graduate from college. It’s hard to qualify for a loan if you don’t have a good job and have amassed student loans. If you’re a Millennial exploring your options for buying real estate in San Diego then give The Lewis Team a call. We would love to help.

Technology Preferences by Generation

Technology Preferences by Generation

Technology use by generation

It’s undeniable that technology has impacted our lives in just about every way possible.

From text messaging to paying for merchandise with a smartphone, consumers have their preferences, and they vary by generation.

Could not get by without their cell phone or smartphone

  • Millennials 74%
  • Xers 63%
  • Boomers 49%
  • Matures 41%

Would rather communicate via text message than talking on their cell phone or smartphone

  • Millennials 72%
  • Xers 54%
  • Boomers 31%
  • Matures 16%

Would like to be able to make payments by scanning their cell phone or smartphone

  • Millennials 64%
  • Xers 43%
  • Boomers 25%
  • Matures 12%

I’m an Exer and as a San Diego real estate agent working with both buyers and sellers I notice that younger generations really like to use technology to communicate effectively. I do notice that Millennials and Xers like to text to communicate way more than Boomers and Matures. 

Either way I can help you buy a home or sell your home, it doesn’t matter how you want to communicate, we can get the job done.  Ready to buy or sell a home in San Diego? Contact The Lewis Team at Keller Williams and we’ll get started right away.
