Americans Rank Real Estate Best Investment for 7 Years Running!
This statement is backed up by economists who have come out with their predictions for the rest of 2020—will we see appreciation or depreciation this year? Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Mortgage Bankers Association, and the National Association of Realtors all predict appreciation.

Mortgage Rates Hit Record Lows for Three Consecutive Weeks

Mortgage Rates Hit Record Lows for Three Consecutive Weeks!!!

Over the past several weeks, Freddie Mac has reported the average 30-year fixed mortgage rate dropping to record lows, all the way down to 3.03%. I have clients who got approved for FHA and their rate for a 30 year fixed is 2.25%!!!
A lower monthly payment means savings that can add up significantly over the life of a home loan. It also means that qualified buyers may be able to purchase MORE HOME for their money. Maybe that's a BIGGER HOME than what they'd be able to afford at a higher rate, an increasingly desirable option considering the amount of time families are now spending at home given today's health crisis.

Over the past several weeks, Freddie Mac has reported the average 30-year fixed mortgage rate dropping to record lows, all the way down to 3.03%. Last week’s reported rate reached the lowest point in the history of the survey, which dates back to 1971 (See graph below):

Buyers: Are You Ready for a Bidding War?

Buyers: Are You Ready for a Bidding War?
On average, there were about three offers on a home that closed in May, up from just about two in April 2020 and in May 2019 (2.3 offers).Today, housing is truly driving the U.S. economy forward. With so many buyers looking for homes to purchase and so few houses for sale right now, there’s a disconnect between supply and demand. This imbalance is pushing home prices upward while driving more bidding wars and multiple-offer scenarios.
If this is the year you’re ready to buy, let’s connect, #503-949-2411, to get the process started so you can make sure your offer is a strong one when the competition heats up.

A Historic Rebound for the Housing Market

A Historic Rebound for the Housing Market!!!
Pending Home Sales increased by 44.3% in May. In real estate, pending home sales is a key indicator in determining the strength of the housing market. But in order to continue with this trend, we need more houses for sale on the market. As we move through the year, we’ll see an increase in the number of houses being built. This will help combat a small portion of the inventory deficit. The lack of overall inventory, however, is still a challenge, and it is creating an opportunity for HOMEOWNERS who are READY TO SELL. Contact me, #503-949-2411, if you are thinking of SELLING and let me Put My Experience, Knowledge, Service and Professionalism to Work for You.

Pending Home Sales increased by 44.3% in May, registering the highest month-over-month gain in the index since the National Association of Realtors (NAR) started tracking this metric in January 2001. So, what exactly are pending home sales, and why is this rebound so important?

Is the Health Crisis Driving Buyers Out of Urban Areas?

Is the Health Crisis Driving Buyers Out of Urban Areas?
Buyers’ views of listings are leaning heavily to more suburban and rural properties. Here are the year-over-year percentage increases in views per property type:
Urban – 7%
Suburban – 13%
Rural – 16%
It appears that a percentage of people are preparing to leave many American cities. Some of these moves will be permanent, while others will be temporary (such as a getaway to a second home). In either case, many consumers are on the move.

Best Time to SELL? When Competition Is at an All-Time LOW!
National Association of Realtor's most recent Pending Sales Report (homes going into contract) surpassed last month’s number by over 44%, which far exceeded analysts’ projections of 15%. And while buyer activity is surging, the number of listings has fallen to an all-time low; causing BIDDING WARS to heat up again. If you’re thinking of SELLING, don’t be concerned about putting your house on the market right NOW.

What Are the Experts Saying About Future Home Prices?

What Are the Experts Saying About Future Home Prices?

In housing right now, demand far exceeds supply. Mortgage applications to buy a home just rose to the highest level in 11 years while inventory of homes for sale is at (or near) an all-time low.
Whether you’re thinking of buying a home or selling your house, know that home prices will not change dramatically this year, even with all of the uncertainty we’ve faced in 2020.

Lisa Scheirman, HomeSmart Realty Group

A worldwide pandemic and an economic recession have had a tremendous effect on the nation. The uncertainty brought about by both has made predicting consumer behavior nearly impossible. For that reason, forecasting home prices has become extremely difficult.

Some Positive Economic News...Webinar Cliff Note Version: There will be some negative housing stats because of the shut down (April & May), but home prices are still rising, interest rates are at historic lows, 3.3%. Oregon was in a VERY good shape with great job growth going into this shut down. Oregon had one of the fastest job growth in the nation. Oregon has become a technology hub. Not enough housing inventory=a strong housing market. During the current shut down there are even fewer listings=very low. In '08-'09 it took the Feds 8 months to get rates down, this time Feds went all at one time and not drag it out. He thinks interest rates can go and will go even lower...to 2.7-2.8%. Home owners are sitting on a sizable wealth/equity, he doesn't see prices declining because of the short inventory we have and buyers are there, they are just staying home because of the shut down. There are still 70% of the people that have secure employment and they are looking at 3% interest rates. Thinks there will be a surge of listings come on the market. Right now quite for a couple of months but that will change, homes are more affordable now because of the low interest rates. There is a pent-up housing demand, shortage on new construction. We have a few months of pause button for sales, but we will catch up on some sales later in the year (-5 to 10%). In 2021, home sales to be up 8-12%.
