Home Values In South East Los Angeles up 7% in one year

by Southern Californias Top Producing Mother & Son Te

Home values are up about 7% from exactly one year ago according to data from SoCal MLS reports.  Interest rates are still at record lows with tracking rates currently at 3.76% for a 30 year fixed loan.  Inventory will play a key role on where home values go in the coming months.  We are still not seeing as many homes enter the market as there were back in 2012.  Less homes on the market creates more competition with buyers.  The more competition, the higher home values will stay.  Many industry leaders are thinking that we have another good 3-4 years of a good real estate market before we see a down turn.  There will be a downturn in the market.  There always is.  The question that everyone keeps asking themselves though is whether or not that downturn is going to be as big as it was in 2007/2008.  It’s really hard to see that big of a dip in the market now that lending practices have been tightened drastically compared to years past.  The average sales price for the month of Feb was $536,086 compared to $497,779 last Feb.  Looking at the graph and going off of what we’ve seen in previous months, we can assume that we will see another rise in home values.  Only time will tell.  What is really clear at this point is that anyone that can, should take advantage of the low interest rates out there.  You can borrow money for really cheap at these low interest rates.

Interest Rates HIKE may come to a halt

by Southern Californias Top Producing Mother & Son Te

We get told all the time by potential buyers that they are going to wait because there's going to be a turn in the market.  There are worries of a recession....  That may be the case but keep in mind that if the economy shows a lot of volatility, that is all the reason more to keep interest rates low.  And we know if interest rates are low, buyers can borrow money, basically on discount... So as we've said before, this is a great market for both buyers and sellers.  

Play our weekend report above for a quick video explaining the activity on our listing inventory...

RECOMMEND us to your Friends and Family.
