Update on the South Florida / Fort Lauderdale real estate market.

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 […]

Pick your poison

When it comes to the current housing and mortgage market, I guess you have to pick your poison.  If rates move lower, there is a very good chance that the economy is slowing and the housing market will struggle.  If rates move higher, the economy may be stronger, but the higher rates will hurt the […]

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 […]

About our blog

I remember visiting some friends in Southern California during the last housing boom.  I played golf with different groups over a one-week period and it seemed like everything in the economy was hitting on all cylinders.  Almost everyone I met was a mortgage broker or real estate agent.  This was probably around 2005-2006 and there […]

Year in review – 2018 foreclosures

Today we will do a year in review with a look at foreclosure filing activity throughout South Florida.  It’s crazy to think that ten years after the last housing bust, the delinquent mortgages still remain.  There have been a variety of foreclosure halts in South Florida over the last decade.  As a result, we continue to wrestle […]

Will they see it this time around?

Will the real estate agents see it this time around?  So many of them were blindsided by the last downturn.  They were busy selling and collecting commissions on overpriced properties, ignoring all of the signs of a frothy market.  My guess is they won’t see it, because they don’t want to.  More importantly, real estate […]

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 […]
