Good News All Around?

As we review the numbers and trends over the last couple of months we are glad to report that we have good news for both buyers and sellers. Take a look at the numbers in the chart below. We’ll detail the positives we see for buyers and sellers in the following paragraph. 

Buyers should be glad to see that interest rates are still down over a point from the fall and active listings (the numbers of homes on the market for sale) are up over 8% when comparing January 2023 to January 2024. The median days on the market was longer than a month for the first time in over 3 years, and the month’s supply of inventory came in at 1.72 months, up from 1.27 in January 2023. The bottom line is, while we are still firmly in a seller’s market, buyers are starting to have more choices, especially in higher price ranges.

Seller are happy that the median sales price is up almost 6% from January 2023 to January 2024, and seller’s know that a balanced market has a roughly 5 month supply of inventory. Since our local market is still under 2 months, sellers are still in control. Additionally, our local market is always slower over the winter, helping buyers who are willing to move their Christmas tree. 

As we head into spring, if you are thinking about selling your property, now is the time to get started. Sellers often make the mistake of waiting to list in the summer, but statistics show that early spring is a much better time to get the ball rolling. Based on a study we did the five months with the highest number of homes going under contract were April, June, May, July, and March. Many people do move during the summer months but that is often because they listed their house in the spring, aiming for offers that might close 30 to 60 days later in time for a summer move. If you are considering selling, now is the time to start making plans and we are here to help.

Real Estate Update

Last January we decided to run a trivia contest to guess the medium sales price for 2023 across Hampton Roads and offered to donate $100 to the charity of the winner’s choice. Joey’s guess was $331,400 and the final number was $330,000 so he was the closest. Congrats to Joey and to ForKids, the charity he picked. We will run the same contest again this year, so see below for the details. 

As you can see in this chart from the Real Estate Information Network (REIN, our local MLS), the median sales price continues to increase (it was $312,000 in 2022). In this chart, the red bar is the medium sales price, the gray vertical bars are the total number of homes that sold each month, and the green bar across the bottom is HUD’s estimated of the median family income. 

If you look at the statistics in the chart it might appear that the trends of 2004-2009 are similar to the market now, but we do not believe that will mean that we are in store for a price drop similar to the one that occurred between 2007-2011. A large part of the decline during that time frame was the result of bank foreclosures caused by lax loan underwriting. Thankfully, lending standards are much tighter now, and the Month’s Supply of Inventory (MSI) is still well under 2 months. In an average market the MSI should be between 5 and 7 months, so the inventory (number of homes listed for sale) could double and we would still be in a seller’s market. As a result, we think that the prices will continue to trend upwards. 

Based on our experience, knowledge, and the statistics of the current market, we predict that this spring will continue to be a seller’s market. Interest rates have dropped over a point since October, and assuming they stay below 7%, we think the medium sales price will continue to rise. 

What do you think? Reply back to this email with your prediction of what you think the median sales price will be for 2024. We will make a $100 donation in your honor to the charity of your choice for the guess closest to next year’s number. 

As always, every situation is different, so give us a call (757-726-7653 for Lee, 757-434-9084 for Harry) or reply back to this email, and we will be happy to talk through your individual situation. 

Happy New Year.

Real Estate Update

I was dreaming all December of snow falling for a white Christmas that we definitely did not get, but at least the interest rates have been falling over the last two months. Here is a chart from the St Louis Fed showing the 30-year mortgage rates since August 1st.

As you can see, interest rates have dropped over a point during the last two months, and that is good news for both buyers and sellers. This chart from the Real Estate Information Network (REIN, our local MLS) shows that the number of homes selling are still lower than last year, but the median sales price is up almost 10% when comparing November 2022 to November 2023. 

Last year we predicted that the number of sales would go down and that we didn’t expect the median sales price to change much. Our main point was that we disagreed with the opinions of many that the price of homes was likely to go down in 2023. When the final numbers come in for the year, we are almost certain to finish the year with fewer home sales across Hampton Roads but at an increased median sales price.

Last week the Cross Realty family celebrated together during the annual office Christmas party. It was my 22nd Christmas party as an employee of Cross Realty, and each year, my father, Harry, always talks about his father, my grandfather Harry Lee Cross, Jr. My grandfather loved the office Christmas party for many reasons, but for him, the most important thing it signified was that his small business had another successful year. This will be Cross Realty’s 70th year as a family business in Suffolk, and I am proud to be a part of ensuring that Harry Lee Cross Jr.’s legacy of serving as your trusted hometown professional continues. From all of us at Cross Realty, we appreciate you allowing us to be of service over the years and look forward to continuing to help you over the next 70 years!

Real Estate Update

The past couple of months we have talked a lot about interest rates. While interest rates are arguably one of the most impactful factors in the real estate market, in our opinion supply and demand is the most important, followed closely by the state of the economy. 

Last month our trivia question was: What month and year was the month’s supply of inventory higher than 1.76? The correct answer (Congratulations to Mike) was: October 2020.

We have been in a very low inventory market for years, and until that changes sellers will remain in the driver’s seat. Any time you are selling anything, the fewer items for sale the better. As you can see in this chart from the Real Estate Information Network (REIN, our local MLS), while the total number of homes sold has dropped almost 20% when comparing October 2023 to October 2022, the number of homes for sale is also slightly down which keeps demand strong and prices steady. 

Over the last month, we have seen a lot of sellers reducing the prices of their listed homes. This is a change from recent years when price reductions were almost nonexistent because the demand from buyers was so high. The market is shifting, and while it is still considered a seller’s market, we do think you will see inventory increasing over the next couple of months. 

If you are thinking about buying or selling, it is in your best interest to go ahead and give us a call (757-726-7653 for Lee, 757-434-9084 for Harry) or reply back to this email, and we will be happy to talk through your individual situation. We love real estate and are always happy to talk.

Fixed Mortgage Rates Under 4%

Last month our trivia question was: Of the approximately 53 million outstanding home mortgages, 32.33 million of them are under what fixed mortgage rate? The correct answer was 4% (congratulations to Stephen), and interestingly enough, his winning answer was also the lowest of all the answers we received. 

Why does this matter? If you have a 30 year fix rate loan at 4% for $300,000, your monthly principle and interest payment is $1,432.25. If you got a loan for the same amount, but had a 7% interest rate, your monthly payment is now $1,995.91. If you want to keep your payment roughly the same you could only finance $215,000 (1,430.40 monthly payment at 7%). As you can see, buyers have lost a tremendous amount of buying power, and this goes a long way to explain why the number of people looking to move has gone down.  

It isn’t all doom and gloom in the real estate world, especially if you are a seller. The number of homes selling continues to fall, but the median sales price is up over 7% when comparing September 2022 to September 2023. Here is the chart from the Real Estate Information Network (REIN, our local MLS). 

While interest rates play an important role, in our view the most important metric is the month’s supply of inventory. The month’s supply of inventory is calculated by dividing the total number of homes listed for sale by the number of homes that go under contract. For example, if 100 homes are listed and 10 go under contract, that month’s supply of inventory would be 10 months. A balanced market is between 5 and 7 months. In September 2023 it was 1.76 up from 1.68 for August 2023. It was 1.54 in July 2023 and 1.39 last August.

We are going to use the month’s supply of inventory for this month’s trivia question: What month and year was the month’s supply of inventory higher than 1.76? As always, you can reply back to this email with your answers. 

If you are thinking about buying or selling, it is in your best interest to go ahead and give us a call (757-726-7653 for Lee, 757-434-9084 for Harry) or reply back to this email, and we will be happy to talk through your individual situation. We love real estate and are always happy to talk.

What do 32.33 Million Americans have in Common?

Last week the Federal Reserve Board did not raise the Federal Funds Rate but it hinted that it will do so later this year. After the announcement, the stock market went down and the 30-year mortgage rate went up. Last month we evaluated the impact of the current 30-year mortgage rates (above 7%) on the local market (read that newsletter here). Because it takes 30-60 days to close on homes under contract, we concluded that real evidence would not be available for a couple of months. 

Here is the chart from the Real Estate Information Network (REIN, our local MLS).

As you can see, while the number of active listings (available homes for sale) is lower, the number of settled (closed) sales is down more. This is causing the month’s supply of inventory to creep up to 1.68 for August 2023. It was 1.54 in July 2023 and 1.39 last August. The months’ supply of inventory is calculated by dividing the total number of homes listed for sale by the number of homes that go under contract. For example, if 100 homes are listed and 10 go under contract, that months’ supply of inventory would be 10 months.  A balanced market is between 5 and 7 months. Despite the higher interest rates, and the somewhat slowing market, the number of homes on the market would need to almost double twice before we get into a balanced market. 

Our title this month is also our trivia question. Of the approximately 53 million outstanding home mortgages, 32.33 million of them are under what fixed mortgage rate? Reply back to this email with your guess, and we will give you the answer next month.

If you are thinking about buying or selling, it is in your best interest to go ahead and give us a call (757-726-7653 for Lee, 757-434-9084 for Harry) or reply back to this email, and we will be happy to talk through your individual situation. We love real estate and are always happy to talk.
