Will borrowing costs & real estate prices fall together?

Normally borrowing costs fall and real estate prices rise.  Will rates and prices both fall together this time around?  Nothing has been normal during this last decade of low rates and asset price inflation.  Mortgage rates have been falling, but they don’t appear to be helping real estate transaction volume or prices for that matter. […]

Market support

Lower rates provided some real estate market support in the first quarter of 2019.  Whether the rate drop was caused by recession fears or the market realizing that the Fed won’t raise again this year, we don’t know.  The charts show that it provided needed support to the residential real estate market.  In the first […]

A hiccup or a rebound?

We are trying to determine if this recent data is a hiccup or the start of a rebound in housing activity.  Deal volume picked up in February with a total of 5,790 closed residential transactions, up from the dismal number of 5,113 in January.  We always remind people that one month doesn’t make a trend, […]

Do your homework

Make sure you do your homework if you are considering any real estate investments at this point in the cycle.  The market has shifted and most real estate agents either don’t know, or just don’t want you to know.  That’s why it is important for your to conduct your own due diligence rather than leaving […]

Residential inventory on the rise in South Florida

Residential real estate inventory was on the rise in South Florida during the month of January.  We have noted that some of this bounce is seasonal.  Plenty of sellers would rather not have their properties listed during the holidays.  They come off in late November and magically reappear in January.  What is noticeable this time […]

Housing Bubble Update

The latest housing bubble in South Florida real estate looks like it has been leaking air.  Nearly a decade of easy money in the form of record low mortgage rates  helped create this monster and we aren’t sure how it will end.  What we do know is that these distortions cannot last forever and there is […]

Headline of the day

The headline of the day appeared after existing home sales tanked for December. Here is a good  link.   Apparently real estate agents were “baffled” by the latest home sales report.  How could this happen?  You mean that real estate doesn’t always go up?  If agents would spend some time doing basic math and affordability analysis, they […]

The big unwind

A big unwind is on the horizon.  Although the low rates and easy money helped propel the real estate markets to new highs, it is important to maintain some perspective on how these levels were reached.  There has been lots of market manipulation “tools” in order to create this latest bubble, so don’t expect it […]

Have you noticed?

Have you noticed anything different in your neighborhood?  Does it appear as if those for sale signs tend to linger awhile longer than they used to?  How about that slick real estate investor trying to flip the house down the street for a quick profit?  Do you think they have seen a shift in the […]
