eviction moratorium

Eviction Moratorium – Fair Or Unfair?

Alameda County and San Francisco both extended the COVID related eviction moratorium. That is over two and a half YEARS that landlords have potentially gone without getting paid rent. Is that fair? What would be fair? In todays show, I want to hear back from you on what you think! I offer what I think makes sense, but that does not mean it is the only solution out there. So chime in and let me know what you think!

home prices in 2023

Home Prices In 2023 Set To Rise?

I came across an interesting article where the Chief Economist for the National Association of Realtors suggests that home prices in 2023 will go up by about 1%. We will chat about that and offer up an alternative viewpoint – particularly regarding what is likely to happen right here in Silicon Valley.

Buying A Home first Steps

Buying A Home – Step 1 Toward The Dream!

I get so many questions about where to begin when buying a home, I thought I would put together a show that really does start at the beginning to get you headed in the right direction. There will be more shows to follow that cover other aspects of the home buying experience, but this should get you off to a good start!

mortgage lending meltdown

Mortgage Lending Meltdown Coming!

Even  when rates drop a bit, we are not seeing an uptick in new mortgages. What does this mean for the market? Where do we go from here? This is likely just one more element that will force home prices down! Join me in discussing how this mortgage lending meltdown might shape up in todays show!

Where San Francisco sellers are moving in 2022

Where San Francisco sellers are moving in 2022

Redfin published an interesting (if not a little bit suspect) list of where San Francisco home sellers are moving in 2022. The real headline should probably be more about where they have searched rather than where they actually end up going, because frankly, some of the cities on this list seem like a stretch. In any event, we will do a quick review of this list of locations – they may spell opportunity for saavy buyers or investors.

Home Buyer Sentiment 11 Year Low

Home Buyer Sentiment At 11 Year Low

The last time home buyer sentiment was this low it was 2011. Things were NOT good in 2011. We were still right in the middle of the last real estate downturn and huge inventories. If this is where buyer expectations are now, imagine how that will effect our market. Well, you don’t have to, because we discuss that on todays show!

September 2022 Real Estate Hot take

September 2022 Real Estate Hot Take!

Let’s try something new! This will be the first in a regularly monthly show where we review the previous months data on the first Monday of the month – a ‘real estate hot take’! The reason we usually don’t use data this early in the month is because the MLS systems take about 3 weeks to review the data and correct it. Which frequently results in big shifts in the trends shown… such as happened in the data for August!

Fannie Mae Predicts Recession In 2023

Fannie Mae Predicts Recession In 2023

Straight from the lips of the good folks over at Fannie Mae “…Recession Likely in 2023”. Well, I think the most obvious response to that statement would be “Welcome to the party pal!” As seems to be true with most bad news, the headlines and folks in charge always seem to be just a little behind the curve. Even in this admission, Fannie Mae puts the absolute best possible spin on the situation. But hey, we all love optimism… right?

interest rates set to skyrocket

Interest Rates Are Set To Skyrocket

The fed will be meeting this week to decide not IF rates will be raised, but by how much. Popular opinions suggest a .75 increase, but lets talk about why it might even be higher!

2023 real estate blood bath

2023 Is Going To Be A Real Estate Blood Bath

That’s right a real estate blood bath is coming. I think we are headed for a downturn that just might dwarf the 2006-2008 style crash we saw in real estate. We are in worse financial shape as we try to combat inflation, recessions and a contracting real estate market.

Housing Affordability Hits 33 Year Low

Housing Affordability Hits 33 Year Low

Another painful record broken as housing affordability has hit a 30 year low. However, we are seeing signs the indicate a slowing in home price appreciation. I have a suspicion that we might just seem home prices actually come down as sellers who must sell adjust their prices down to better align with the current market.

Unemployment The Real Numbers

Unemployment: The Real Numbers

I should have known better. Last week, I shared with you the latest unemployment numbers – and I took them at face value. Which is where I made my mistake! Of course, if I listen to my own advice from previous podcasts where we looked at unemployment, I would have realized there was likely more to the story than what they are sharing in the headlines. Of course, there is. In fact, the actual data implies the opposite of what the talking heads are suggesting.
