California housing market recovery hinges on widespread availability and usage of effective coronavirus vaccine in early 2021. LOS ANGELES (Oct. 13) – Low mortgage interest rates and pent-up demand from a desire for homeownership will bolster California home sales in 2021, but economic uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic and continued supply shortage will limit sales growth, according to a housing and economic forecast released today by the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.). The baseline scenario of C.A.R.’s “2021 California Housing Market Forecast” sees a modest increase in existing single-family home sales of 3.3 percent next year to reach 392,510 units, up from the projected 2020 sales figure of 380,060. The 2020 figure is 4.5 percent lower compared with the pace of 397,960 homes sold in 2019. The California median home price is forecast to edge up 1.3 percent to $648,760 in 2021, following a projected 8.1 percent increase to $640,330 in 2020 from $592,450 in 2019.

The macroeconomic data is encouraging as businesses report stronger results and increased optimism. The labor markets continue to heal as well, albeit at a slower pace. C.A.R. also released its outlook for 2021, which calls for ongoing improvements in the absence of a resurgence of the pandemic. Buyers remain enthusiastic and low rates, which are expected to persist over the near term, are at the root of that trend. However, there are some signs of a recovery that is gradually subsiding to a more muted pace after an initial resurgence. Updated C.A.R. Forecast Expects More Home Sales and High Prices in 2021: At REImagine!, Leslie Appleton-Young delivered her updated forecast for 2021 that expects sales to continue to improve for the remainder of 2021 and increase modestly again next year. Buyer demand remains robust and that has already pushed California’s median price above $700,000. However, inventory is expected to remain a challenge that will keep sales growth in the single digits next year. Fewer Mortgages Now in Forbearance: After more than 5 households applied for forbearance during the coronavirus pandemic, those numbers have gradually begun to improve. After peaking at nearly 9% of all residential mortgages during the summer, the MBA now estimates that 6.81% of mortgages are in forbearance. Although that still represents more than 3.3 million households, nearly 1 million are no longer skipping payments. Click here to finish reading.

The aspen trees that you see in Tahoe are called Quaking Aspens. They get their name from the way their flat leaves and lengthy stalks tremble in the lightest of breezes. Aspen leaves turn vibrant yellow due to a decrease in photosynthetic activity as the days get shorter in the fall, causing the green hue to fade as chlorophyll production is stopped. Aspens are also the most massive organism on Earth.
