Title:

Dorota Dyman & Associates Real Estate Ask Adam: Are We in a Real Estate Bubble?

Description:

I’m certainly not an economist by any stretch, but I can share my personal thought based on my professional experience as an Arlington real estate broker. I think we can all agree that real estate home values have been rising throughout 2013. • RBI is reporting that the median price of sold homes in Arlington is up 6% from this time last year. • The Case-Shiller index reports a 7% home price increase for the Washington DC area over the last 12 months. Buyer activity has increased in 2013. Some of this is due to a release of pent up demand from would-be homebuyers that have been waiting on the sidelines for the real estate market to stabilize or the price of their current home to reach a point where they could afford to sell and buy something that fit their current needs. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Are We in a Real Estate Bubble?
  • Im certainly not an economist by any stretch,
    but I can share my personal thought based on my
    professional experience as an Arlington real
    estate broker.
  • I think we can all agree that real estate home
    values have been rising throughout 2013.
  • RBI is reporting that the median price of sold
    homes in Arlington is up 6 from this time last
    year.
  • The Case-Shiller index reports a 7 home price
    increase for the Washington DC area over the last
    12 months.

  • Buyer activity has increased in 2013. Some of
    this is due to a release of pent up demand from
    would-be homebuyers that have been waiting on the
    sidelines for the real estate market to stabilize
    or the price of their current home to reach a
    point where they could afford to sell and buy
    something that fit their current needs.
  •  
  • Another factor leading to an increase in prices
    is the low supply of housing inventory. New home
    development is still in hibernation. The rental
    market has been strong enough that many would-be
    home sellers are opting to rent their homes
    rather than sell them because of the favorable
    rental income they can generate.

  • Other homeowners are either happy where they are
    or have not seen the value of their homes reach a
    point where they are motivated to sell.
  • So if prices are rising, does that mean we are in
    a bubble? No, but having been through the
    bursting bubble of 2006/2007 we are all on high
    alert. I would even go so far as to say that some
    of us have been conditioned to feel that
    increasing prices will inevitably lead to a
    housing market bubble.
  • Looking back at what happened leading up to 2006
    prices were rising at a much faster speed. You
    may remember zip codes in Arlington experiencing
    greater than 20 appreciation in 2003 and 2004.
    Prices are rising again, but at more reasonable
    pace.

  • Youll also remember the infamous mortgages that
    people were obtaining, which they would never
    qualify for under the current standards. Todays
    growth is happening on a more stable base of
    financing where homebuyers are bringing equity to
    the closing table and having to meet higher
    standards for qualification.
  • Looking forward to 2014, I do expect buyer demand
    to taper somewhat. This will be due to an easing
    of the pent up demand I described earlier and an
    increase in the cost to own due to higher prices
    and higher interest rates. There are two other
    important factors to keep an eye on that can
    affect the real estate market

local job market. Economists and politicians are
warning that the local job market may soften as
the federal government begins to shrink. I expect
the amount that the real estate market is
affected will be in direct proportion to how deep
and abrupt job cuts are.   I expect that interest
rates will continue to climb. I think that the
market will be able to absorb rate hikes into the
5s, but if we start talking about 6 or higher,
then I expect them to adversely affect the real
estate market. Its a polarizing subject to say
the least so I am looking forward to hearing your
thoughts on the matter in comments.
