Housing Supply Improvements Expected to Continue Throughout the Summer


June 1, 2024

Good morning,


Recently released reports offer some promising outlook for the California housing market in the medium term and the long term. The anticipated increase in the statewide population in the coming years and a strong desire for many renters to buy in the near future are encouraging news that should help push housing demand to a higher level in the next few years.


With the improvement in housing supply conditions expected to continue throughout the summer and rates projected to moderate more consistently in the second half of the year, more buyers should reenter the market in the later part of the homebuying season.


If you have any questions regarding our local market, please reach out. Have a great weekend!

The NASDAQ composite hit an all time high last week, just shy of 17,000, up 127% in just 5 years. In case you were wondering how the rich got richer, now you know! This massive wealth creation is what drives a good chunk of the ultra-luxury real estate markets.....and impacts almost anyone invested in the markets, including anyone with a retirement account, not just 'the rich'. Even an S&P 500 index fund is up almost 88% in the past 5 years. (Ownership has its privileges!) All of this is fueled by innovation, efficiencies ....and higher pricing that has fueled profitability.

Why have home insurance rates soared? A big part of the problem - besides more extreme weather events and sharply higher building costs, not to mention fraud - is that insurers buy reinsurance policies to limit their risks. After suffering a sharp drop in profits, reinsurers raised rates and cut coverage at the start of 2023. That hit home insurers, making it harder to manage their losses from storms and other extreme-weather events. Many of them passed on the higher costs and reduced coverage to their customers. Since the start of last year, regulators have greenlighted a 26% home-insurance rate increase in Texas, one of 45 states to suffer a double-digit increase. While home insurers have struggled—the industry last year lost almost 11 cents for every dollar of premium written, according to S&P—reinsurers are enjoying their most profitable stretch in years.
