LOS ANGELES (Jan. 19) – Despite strong headwinds of tight housing supplies and an affordability squeeze throughout much of 2016, California’s housing market ended the year on a positive note, posting a moderate sales pace and home price increases in December, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) said today.Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 411,230 units in December, according to information collected by C.A.R. from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2016 if sales maintained the December pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales.
Thanks to a series of atmospheric river storms that have pummeled California, the snowpack of Lake Tahoe is reaching record-breaking numbers. In early January, parts of California received over 28 inches of rain and up to 17 feet of snow, causing flooding, avalanches, and a major shift in the California drought monitor map. But more storms followed, and in the past week Lake Tahoe saw another 8 feet of snow in just 5 days. Meteorologists at Open Snow say that at 7,000 feet in Lake Tahoe, 237 inches have fallen this month alone. That beats a 1973 record of 159 inches of snow that fell in January of that year. In total, the Lake Tahoe snowpack at 7,000 feet has received 80 percent of the seasonal average-and we’re only 43 percent of the way through the ski season. There’s even more snow at higher elevations. Finish reading here.
Low inventory reflects the mood. Sellers are “Sheltering in Place” . Sellers are waiting out the storm, both natural and political. With a wait and see attitude. In the mean time first time buyers are feeling the effect. Investors trending to real estate as a safe haven for diversification in their portfolios.
“While a lack of listings and fast rising home prices was a headwind all year, the surge in rates since early November ultimately caught some prospective buyers off guard and dimmed their appetite or ability to buy a home as 2016 came to an end,” says Yun. Finish reading here.
