Economic uncertainty and high prices are muting the housing market in the nation’s most populous state, according to the California Association of Realtors.

The median home price in California likely will increase by 2.5% to $607,900 in 2020, slowing from a projected 4.1% annual gain in 2019, CAR said in a forecast Thursday. Sales of existing single-family homes probably will gain 0.8% in 2020 to reach 393,500, following a 3.1% drop this year from 2018’s level, the group said.

Low mortgage rates are making it easier for buyers to afford homes, but that’s being offset by the Trump administration’s trade wars that have increased the chances of an economic contraction, said Jared Martin, president of CAR.

“Buyers have more purchasing power than in years past, but they may be reluctant to get off the sidelines because of economic and market uncertainties,” Martin said. “Additionally, an affordability crunch will cut into demand in some regions such as the Bay Area, where affordability is significantly below state and national levels. These factors together will subdue sales growth next year.”

Economic growth probably will slow to 1.6% in 2020, slowing from 2.2% this year, according to the forecast. The state’s unemployment rate likely will tick up to 4.5% in 2020 from 4.3% this year, the group said.

The average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage probably will be 3.7% in 2020, down from 3.9% this year and 4.5%, according to CAR.

“California’s housing market will be challenged by changing migration patterns as buyers search for more affordable housing markets, particularly by first-time buyers, who are the hardest hit, moving out of state,” said CAR Chief Economist Leslie Appleton-Young. “With California’s job and population growth rates tapering, the state’s affordability crisis is having a negative impact on the state economically as we lose the workers we need most such as service and construction workers, and teachers.”

The median home value in Ridgecrest is $192,400. Ridgecrest home values have gone up 3.7% over the past year and Zillow predicts they will rise 8.4% within the next year. The median list price per square foot in Ridgecrest is $136, which is lower than the Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario Metro average of $209. The median price of homes currently listed in Ridgecrest is $205,900 while the median price of homes that sold is $198,100. The median rent price in Ridgecrest is $1,350, which is lower than the Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario Metro median of $2,150.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Ridgecrest 1.1 homes are foreclosed (per 10,000). This is greater than the Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario Metro value of 1.0 and also lower than the national value of 1.2

Mortgage delinquency is the first step in the foreclosure process. This is when a homeowner fails to make a mortgage payment. The percent of delinquent mortgages in Ridgecrest is 0.4%, which is lower than the national value of 1.1%. With U.S. home values having fallen by more than 20% nationally from their peak in 2007 until their trough in late 2011, many homeowners are now underwater on their mortgages, meaning they owe more than their home is worth. The percent of Ridgecrest homeowners underwater on their mortgage is 13.9%, which is higher than Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario Metro at 6.4%.

Prognosis Ridgecrest Market

November 27th, 2016 by Eloy Rodriguez

Note, market has substantially slowed down during turkey week and in general for the holidays. Could just be the ‘seasonal effect’. To what extent the elections will have on the market is unknown given uncertainty and rising interest rates. Ridgecrest exist in the middle of ‘nowhere’ because of the China Lake Naval base. It is the largest naval base in the country; curious given there are no bodies of water. It is dedicated to high tech innovative design; basic how to protect assets and kill people at a distance. The reports coming from the base and released to the public suggest that there will be a major increase of monies given the expectation of a reduction within the ‘standing military’ in favor of high tech, smart weaponry.

Corelogic Reports Foreclosure Rate is the Lowest Since August 2007
BY RE-INSIDERON AUGUST 11, 2016

UN-US-Economy
The good news coming out of CoreLogic and RealtyTrac shows that foreclosure rates are back to housing-boom levels. Additionally, RealtyTrac also shows that more homeowners are keeping their homes out of foreclosure than ever before, down 17% from one year ago and the lowest level for any half-year period since RealtyTrac began tracking foreclosure starts in 2006. According to CoreLogic, these lower rates are being fueled by housing appreciation and rising employment levels.
Foreclosure inventory declined yet again in June, but completed foreclosures, while down from last year, increased from last month, according to CoreLogic, property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider.
CoreLogic’s June 2016 National Foreclosure Report showed the inventory declined 25.9% from last year, and completed foreclosures declined 4.9%. On the other hand, completed foreclosures increased 5.1% to 38,000 from last month.
For comparison, during the housing boom, completed foreclosures averaged 21,000 per month from 2000 to 2006.
Even though completed foreclosures increased from last month, foreclosure inventory still saw a monthly decline of 3.6%.
According CoreLogic’s report last month, May’s foreclosure inventory hit the lowest level in nearly nine years.
The foreclosure inventory is the number of homes at some stage of the foreclosure process while completed foreclosures show the total number of homes lost to foreclosure.
In June, the national foreclosure inventory included about 375,000, or 1%, of homes with a mortgage. This is down from last year when foreclosure inventory consisted of 507,000 homes, or 1.3%.
In fact, the foreclosure inventory rate is the lowest for any month since August 2007.
The number of mortgages in serious delinquency, those 90 days or more past due, in foreclosure or real estate owned, hit the lowest rate since September 2007. The serious delinquency rate decreased 21.3% annually. Now, 2.8% of homes are considered seriously delinquent.
The state with the highest number of completed foreclosures in the 12 months ending in June 2016 was Florida at 60,000, followed by Michigan at 47,000, Texas at 27,000, Ohio at 23,000 and California at 22,000. These states account for nearly 40% of all completed foreclosures nationally.
Are you seeing fewer foreclosure rates in your area? We’d love to hear from you.
