Has the Housing Market Reached Bubble Status Again?

While ongoing improvements in prices have brought the market close to a tipping point, he notes that it’s far cry from the 39 percent overvaluation in the first quarter of 2006.“Even though recent double-digit price gains look unsustainable, current national price levels are not cause for alarm,” Kolko said in a blog post. “Sharp price gains, like we’ve had in 2012 and 2013, are not the sign of a bubble unless price levels look high relative to fundamentals.”Furthermore, “the slowdown in price gains make[s] it less likely that we’re heading for another bubble,” he added.While the national market is still undervalued, conditions vary widely at the local level. According to Trulia, out of the 100 largest metro markets, home prices are overvalued in 19, including eight of the 11 largest California metros. The greatest danger is along the state’s southern coast, in markets like Orange County, Los Angeles, and Riverside-San Bernardino—which make up three of the five most overvalued markets in the country. (The two remaining slots go to Honolulu and Austin.)While the number of overvalued housing markets is on the rise, Kolko again says historical perspective is needed: “In 2014 Q1, prices were overvalued in 19 of the 100 largest metros, which is the highest number since 2009 Q4; furthermore, prices were overvalued by more than 10 percent in 4 large metros, which is the highest number since 2008 Q4.However, at the height of the bubble, all 100 were overvalued, and 91 were overvalued by more than 10 percent.” The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Previous: Fannie Mae Increases Fines for Late or Inaccurate Reporting Next: Foreclosure Sales to Play ‘Diminishing Role’ in 2014 Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Has the Housing Market Reached Bubble Status Again?

She is fluent in both English and Italian, and studied abroad in Florence, Italy. Apart from her work as a journalist, she has also managed professional associations such as Association of Corporate Counsel, Commercial Real Estate Women, American Immigration Lawyers Association, and Project Management Institute for Association Management Consultants in Houston, Texas. Born and raised in Texas, Baer now works as the online editor for DS News. Not unlike the primary debates for the 2016 presidential nominations, Monday night’s first presidential debate between Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, and Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, covered topics hotly debated this election season, but left out any discussion on housing policy and legislation.Despite their lack of discussion on the housing market during the primary debates and now the first presidential debate on Monday, both candidates have expressed their stances on housing sporadically throughout the race.Trump spoke at the National Association of Home Builders’ 2016 Midyear Board of Directors Meeting in Miami, Florida and stated he believed overregulation was the source of many issues in the housing industry including the job growth.“The U.S. economy today is 25 percent smaller than it would have been without the surge of regulations since 1980,” said Trump. “So many businesses knocked down. We will issue an executive order to impose a temporary regulation moratorium on new agency regulations.”Furthermore, he has stated that he plans to discontinue funding of at least some government housing programs and work to ease the current regulatory framework if elected. He has specifically alluded to the possibility of eliminating The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.Clinton on the other hand as shared via her website that she plans to “reduce barriers to lending in underserved communities,” and “support housing counseling programs.” She has also noted that if elected she will “provide the resources necessary to overcome blight, giving communities a chance to rebuild and renew with new businesses, new homeowners, and new hope.””For Hillary Clinton, growing middle class jobs and middle income security is the single lens in which she will judge economic policy,” said Gene Sperling, a top economic advisor to Clinton, in an address to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Board of Directors at their Midyear Meeting in Miami. “What better helps the middle class than housing? Housing creates jobs in the United States. There is probably no other sector that creates jobs throughout income levels – from construction jobs to professional and servicing jobs.”Though Trump and Clinton remained did not discuss their housing policy stances during the debate, their was a brief exchange regarding the foreclosure crisis in which Clinton resurrected an accusation she made against Trump earlier this year.”Well, let’s stop for a second and remember where we were eight years ago,” Clinton said. “We had the worst financial crisis, the Great Recession, the worst since the 1930s. That was in large part because of tax policies that slashed taxes on the wealthy, failed to invest in the middle class, took their eyes off of Wall Street, and created a perfect storm. In fact, Donald was one of the people who rooted for the housing crisis. He said, back in 2006, ‘Gee, I hope it does collapse, because then I can go in and buy some and make some money.’ Well, it did collapse.”Trump responded to the accusation by saying, “That’s called business, by the way.”Clinton continued, “Nine million people—nine million people lost their jobs. Five million people lost their homes. And $13 trillion in family wealth was wiped out. Now, we have come back from that abyss. And it has not been easy. So we’re now on the precipice of having a potentially much better economy, but the last thing we need to do is to go back to the policies that failed us in the first place.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago 2016-09-26 Kendall Baer Home / Daily Dose / Canidates Remain Silent on Housing Policy Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: Winner of Fannie Mae’s Non-Performing Loan Pool Takes It All Next: Why is Miami Ranked Among Weakest Markets?last_img read more

However homeowners, on average, have a higher opinion of their home values than appraisers do.Although the HPPI reports the average appraised values are merely 0.67 percent lower than the average owners’ estimates in November—this represents the narrowest gap in 2017. In addition, November is also the 6th consecutive month the margin between the two values has narrowed.According to Bill Banfield, Quicken Loans EVP of Capital Markets, it’s encouraging to see the opinions from homeowners and appraisers more aligned on a national level.”Appraisals are one of the most important data points when applying for a mortgage,” Banfield said. “If an appraisal is lower than expected when refinancing, the homeowner will need to bring more funds to closing, or might even need the mortgage to be restructured. The more homeowners and appraisers agree, the smoother the process is.”However, the report notes that the findings are diverse across the nation. For example, homeowners in Dallas are actually undervaluing their homes’ worth. According to the data, the average appraisal value in Dallas is 3.25 percent higher than what the homeowner predicted. Meanwhile, Cleveland, Ohio is on the lower end—as the average appraised value is 2.35 percent lower than anticipated by a homeowner.Nationally, Quicken Loans’ Home Value Index showed a slight decrease in appraisal values in November—with a 0.09 percent decrease month-over-month. However, a year-over-year increase of 4.24 percent has helped the positive slope in the annual measure.“As we move into the holiday season, Americans are focusing less on finding their dream home and more on finding the perfect gifts to give to their loved ones,” said Banfield. “As housing demand temporarily cools this time of year, we also see a dip in home values. However, it’s a promising sign to see values continue rising annually.”To view the full report, click here.  Print This Post Previous: Mortgage Delinquency Hits Lowest Rate in a Decade Next: California Wildfires: Housing Damages Top $5 Billion Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Homeowner Perceptions in Sync with Appraiserslast_img read more

Quicken Loans: Homeowners and Appraisers Sync Up

According to the National Quicken Loans Home Price Perception Index (HPPI), home appraisals were only 0.5 percent lower than what homeowners expected in December 2017, up from 0.67 percent lower in November 2017 and a full 1 percent discrepancy in December 2016. This gap between homeowner and appraiser perception was narrower in December 2017 than it had been since March 2015. That trend toward homeowners and appraisers being more on the same page has been continuing for seven months in a row. In only a quarter of the metros measured by the HPPI were appraiser opinions lower than homeowner opinions.”Appraisers and real estate professionals evaluate their local housing markets daily,” said Bill Banfield, Quicken Loans Executive Vice President of Capital Markets. “Homeowners, on the other hand, may only think about their housing market when they see ‘for sale’ signs hit front yards in the spring or when they think about accessing their equity. This is reflected in the HPPI. The housing markets that are rising quickly, like those in the West, are having appraisal values increasing above owner estimates because owners don’t realize just how quickly those markets are advancing.”Quicken Loans’ Home Value Index also reports that the average appraisal value for homes increased 0.65 percent between November and December, and an impressive 6.17 percent compared to December 2016. The West leads the nation in home appraisal values according to Quicken Loans’ data, growing 7.42 percent year-over-year compared to December 2016. Trailing behind the West were the Midwest (6.46 percent YOY increase), South (6.37 percent YOY increase), and Northeast (3.50 percent YOY increase). The Northeast is also the only region that saw a month-over-month decrease in appraised home values in December, dropping 0.21 percent month-over-month.”Homeowners received the gift of added equity this holiday season,” said Banfield. “With several years of growth, owners may have more equity than they realize. Many consumers use the tax season at the beginning of the year to reevaluate their entire financial life. It also provides a good opportunity for them to consider how best to take advantage of their equity while mortgage interest rates and borrowing costs are still near record lows.”The top five metros where appraiser value topped homeowner perception of value in December 2017 included:Dallas, Texas (+3.17 percent)San Jose, California (+2.55 percent)Denver, Colorado (+2.22 percent)San Francisco, California (+2.22 percent)Seattle, Washington (+2.20 percent)The five metros Quicken Loans found to have the biggest disparity between homeowner and appraiser perception for December included:Cleveland, Ohio (-2.09 percent)Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (-1.97 percent)Baltimore, Maryland (-1.78 percent)Chicago, Illinois (-1.38 percent)Houston, Texas (-0.43 percent)You can read more of Quicken Loans data by clicking here.

However, the only East Coast metro to make the list might not be what you’d expect.According to ProTeck’s report, the Portland-South Portland, Maine, metro landed on the list of top 10 hottest housing markets for April 2018 thanks to strong performance in several of the tracked categories. Portland’s Months of Remaining Inventory (MRI) for April was 2.62, and anything below 3 indicates a seller’s market for the region. Portland’s foreclosures as a percentage of sales are low at 1.63 percent. The Portland metro also featured the lowest average sold price—$265,000—of all the core-based statistical areas (CBSAs) featured in ProTech’s top 10.California metros feature heavily in the ProTeck top 10. San Francisco-Redwood City-South San Francisco sports 2.02 MRI, a 0.76 perfect foreclosures as a percentage of sales, and an average sold price of $1.5 million. San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clarita, California, also graces the top 10 list, with a 1.86 MRI, a 0.94 foreclosure percentage of sales, and a $1.28 million average sold price. In fact, half of the top 10 is made up of California markets: in addition to San Francisco and San Jose, the top 10 includes San Diego-Carlsbad, Oakland-Hayward-Berkeley, and Stockton-Lodi.Nevada is also well represented with two entries on the list. Reno, Nevada, boasts an MRI of 3.28, suggesting a larger inventory skewed more toward a buyer’s market. Reno’s foreclosures as a percentage of sales is very low at 0.46 percent, and the average sold price is $360,000. The other Nevada market cracking ProTeck’s top 10 for April 2018 is Las Vegas-Henderson-Paradise, with an MRI of 3.09, a 2.60 foreclosure percentage of sales, and an average sold price of $275,000.Rounding out the top 10 hottest markets according to ProTech are Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, Washington.You can see all the ProTeck data for these markets by clicking here.

Chip Roy (R-Texas) objected to the bill on Friday. According to reports, Roy cities the lack of money for the border and the $19 billion price tag for his objections. He also objetece to the measure without all members getting a chance to vote on it.Congress is in recess until June 3, and a vote on the bill appears unlikely.It was reported earlier this month that U.S. Representatives were pushing for the allocation of promised disaster relief aid Texas and other disaster-affected states.U.S. Reps. Randy Weber and Lizzie Fletcher, introduced the Bipartisan Disaster Recovery Funding Act last week, with support from 13 other co-sponsors from Texas, mostly from the Houston area, as well as supporters from other communities waiting on the funding, including Louisiana, South Carolina, Florida and Puerto Rico.The Act directs federal agencies to release the $16 billion in disaster funds Congress approved in early 2018 following Hurricane Harvey to different states and territories—including more than $4 billion to Texas—within 60 days.“After Harvey hit, I fought alongside the Texas delegation to secure additional funds for Harvey survivors,” U.S. Rep. Mike McCaul. “Unfortunately, the agencies tasked with distributing these funds did not respond with the same urgency.”The Five Star Conference will host its Disaster Preparedness Symposium on July 31 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Natural disasters impact investors, service providers, mortgage servicers, government agencies, legal professionals, lenders, property preservation companies, and—most importantly—homeowners.The 2019 Five Star Disaster Preparedness Symposium will include critical conversations on response, reaction and assistance, to ensure the industry is ready to lend the proper support the next time a natural disaster strikes. Please check back for updates on this story.
