2007 Comprehensive Real Estate Market Stats

Friday, February 1, 2008
from Coldwell Banker Market Watch… The Real Story of 2007 Real Estate
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

February 1, 2008 – When deciding on how the real estate market is doing, we must first identify to which market we are referring – the residential resale market, new residential construction market, or the various types of commercial real estate. We must also look at what geographical location to consider since some areas are doing better than others. (Refer to the county graphs to see last month’s activity.)

When assessing the residential resale market where most of us spend our time, there are two issues to consider — 1) number of actual sales and 2) home prices. With 2007 concluded, many who are reporting on the final figures are passing judgment on whether the year was good or bad. If you look at the second issue of home prices, the growing oversupply of inventory in most areas has pushed prices downward. For buyers who purchased two to three years ago who must sell today, that is not good news. For buyers who are looking to purchase today, it is great news to have many choices of homes at lower prices.

Let’s consider the first issue – the number of actual sales in 2007. Back in 2001, the number of resale (existing) homes nationally hit an all time record of 5.3 million sales and the market was good. In 2002, we were thrilled to see another record at 5.6 million home sales which was considered a great year in real estate. Although some thought it couldn’t get any better, the market continued to reach new heights each year: 2003 = 6.2 million, 2004 = 6.8 million, 2005 = 7.1 million. Then in 2006, inventories were growing, but still 6.5 million homes were sold. Although less than the peak of the previous year, it was still the third best year in history. Then, despite all the doom and gloom from the media about the market in 2007, 5.6 million homes were sold, the same number sold as our great year of 2002.

People are still buying existing homes and they should. Sellers are still selling their homes, not for as much as two and three years ago, but for most, more than they bought it for. If we can assist you or any one you know to better understand what is happening in our current market, please let us know.

A Fresh Outlook for the New Year
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
 

— January 1, 2008
The 2008 New Year brings us hope and an opportunity for fresh thinking by casting away past difficulties. Today’s real estate market fits that new-year situation exactly. Just over two years ago, the real estate market was at its peak in number of sales and in the price of houses. The current oversupply of homes for sale in many of our areas is the reason for the decrease in home prices since an oversupply of any commodity puts downward pressure on prices (see the graphs by county for your area). However, just because prices are down, there is no reason that the number of homes purchased should be down. In fact, with interest rates lower now than one year ago and still in the range of 40-year lows, most buyers can purchase a larger home than they could two years ago. Mortgage money is freely available except for those who should not be getting a mortgage anyway.
So who is today’s real estate market good for? Today’s buyers who have the best housing situation in years – many housing choices available at reasonable prices with lower interest mortgage money available. Also, sellers who will be buyers right away may sell their property for a little less than hoped for, but can buy one for so much less than in the past. And sellers who price their houses in line with the current market are selling them in weeks instead of months.Let the pessimists be gone. See the current real estate market in its true light – a market that is perfect for buyers and also sellers who will then be buyers. With my expertise in handling the real estate market with fresh thinking, I can assist you or anyone you know in taking advantage of today’s opportunities in real estate.

Sincerely yours, 

Kae Davis
