Charleston SC Homes For Sale :  August 2012 National Housing Trends

Charleston SC Homes For Sale :  August 2012 National Housing Trends

Investors Retreat From Housing Market  Latest HousingPulse Survey Results Show 

Investor participation in the housing market dropped sharply in July, establishing a two-month trend and showing a clear reversal of long-term growth in investor purchases of residential properties, according to the Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance HousingPulse Tracking Survey.

Investor participation in the housing market fell to 21.9% of all transactions in July, from 23.5% in June, based on a three-month moving average. Investor participation back in May of this year hit a two-year peak of 25.3% of all transactions.

Real estate agents responding to the HousingPulse survey indicated that recent price increases caused the sharp reversal in investor interest. “Investors are dropping out due to the increase in prices,” reported an agent in California. “Prices are too high here for investors,” added an agent in Massachusetts.

While a rise in sales-to-price ratios was one of the most visible signs of improvement in the non-distressed property sector of the housing market, the average time on market for non-distressed properties also registered a strong improvement.  “Smart money” is beginning to leave the market, according to HousingPulse survey respondents. “Investors are having a hard time finding what they want.  Starting to see ‘dumb’ investors enter the market, the ‘smart’ ones are exiting the buying,” reported an agent from Arizona.  “Investors need a deal. There are not as many opportunities as there was this time last year. It seems all the rookie investors are buying now and paying too much,” observed an agent in Florida.  Learn more about the August 2012 National Housing Trends.

Charleston SC Homes For Sale : Charleston SC Homes July 2012 Housing Indicators

With the Olympics in full swing, housing has already medaled in several arenas. A few short years ago, housing was considered a headwind to economic recovery.  Today, housing is seen as a tailwind to a stalling economy. For the first time since 2005, housing is on track for contributing positively to national GDP in 2012. That can occur either by way of direct residential investment or through remodeling and indicators, including market times, seller concessions, prices and absorption rates.  New Listings in the Charleston region decreased 0.9 percent to 1,288. Pending
Sales were up 31.8 percent to 1,141. Inventory levels shrank 26.4 percent to 6,328 units.

Prices moved higher. The Median Sales Price increased 14.4 percent to $206,000.  Days on Market was down 11.4 percent to 92 days. The supply-demand balance stabilized as Months Supply of Inventory was down 38.2 percent to 7.1 months.

Sustained recovery will not occur without real employment and wage growth.  Consumers must be confident in both the economy and their family finances before signing on the dotted line. Cheap borrowing costs have served as the glue binding things together. Unimaginable a few years ago, the rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage recently ducked below the 3.49 percent marker. Job creation and GDP numbers will garner particular attention this quarter.  CLICK HERE FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

Charleston SC Homes For Sale :  July 2012 National Housing Trends

Sales-to-List Price Ratios Surge in July Latest HousingPulse Survey Results Show

Increased competition for the limited inventory of non-distressed property listings helped push the average sales-to-list price ratio to 95.6% in June, according to the Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance HousingPulse Tracking Survey.

This was the first time in nearly three years the ratio for non-distressed properties has been this high. Notably, sales-to-list price ratios for REO and short sale properties also surged in the month of June.

The HousingPulse monthly survey found that sales-to-list price ratios for three states – California, Arizona and Nevada – exceeded the national average by a wide margin.

The sales-to-list price ratio in California for all property types combined was 98.0% for the month of June, and was 97.6% for Arizona and Nevada together. The sales-to-list price ratio in June for the entire United States was substantially lower at 94.1%.

“Strong demand, particularly in areas of California, Arizona and Nevada, is pushing up sales-to-list price ratios and home prices. These areas have high proportions of cash transactions and are therefore less constrained by home appraisals coming in for less than the contract amount,” noted Thomas Popik research director for Campbell Surveys and chief analyst for HousingPulse.  Learn more about the July 2012 National Housing Trends.
