December 23, 2018 - VENICE/ MAR VISTA

2018 MULTIFAMILY,  HOME PRICE & MARKET TRENDS UPDATE

As of Dec. 23, 2018, the interest rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage jumped to 4.72, up from 4.55 percent in May 2018, and the highest since May 2011 (source: FreddieMac).   

Additionally, homes sold nationwide & their Days on Market (a key broker metric) declined slightly to a national mean of between 45 to 57 days, a shift from  35 to 40 days on market back in May 2018. 

WESTSIDE LA MARKET SHIFT - However, in  certain markets (e.g. Venice/Mar Vista), the Days on Market has climbed from as short as 3.6 months (2017) to as long as 5.6 to 6.5 months (2018). 

Part of what is going on in the market is that homebuyers -- encouraged by positive nationwide trends in job/income growth and low unemployment -- are now rushing to lock in loans before prospective buyers' interest rate costs climb  higher.    With a relatively small inventory, i.e. the supply of listings, the increased level of competition is only making their purchases harder to afford.  This is a great time for a seller in today's market.   

 Fyi, U.S. home prices jumped 7.6 percent in April 2018 from April 2017 to a median national hooome price of $302,200, and sellers were able to receive a record 98.8 percent of what they asked on average (Source:  Redfin).  However, at the same time,  the monthly payment on a $300,000, 30-year loan has climbed to $1,540, up from $1,424 in the beginning of the year, when the average rate was 3.95 percent  (again, as noted above, the national average 30 year rates -- as of Dec. 23, 2018 --  are about 4.72%).
