Don't expect home prices to come crashing down anytime soon

By Nicole Goodkind, CNN Business

Updated 8:12 AM ET, Wed August 31, 2022

New York (CNN Business)Rising mortgage rates are taking a toll on the US housing market. But those hoping for prices to drop probably won't catch a break anytime soon.

What's happening: Home prices were up 18% in June compared to a year ago, with Tampa, Miami and Dallas reporting the highest annual gains, according to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Indices

That was a slower pace than in May, when they rose 19.9% annually. But the bottom line is that prices are still going up a lot, even as home sales have declined from their peaks. 

So are we in a housing bubble?

What's next for the US housing market

Anna Bahney byline

By Anna Bahney, CNN Business

Updated 8:53 AM ET, Tue August 2, 2022 

 

Does a slowing housing market mean homes will get any cheaper?

 

So far this year, the real estate market has not been going the way many prospective homebuyers had hoped. Home prices -- already at all-time highs -- have continued to climb and mortgage rates have risen much faster than expected.

While some buyers have forged ahead, others have put their home search on hold or have given up entirely because the rising costs have put ownership out of reach.

But as recession fears for the larger economy loom, the housing market is showing signs of slowing. Sales of new construction homes are down and construction is stalling. Sales of existing homes have dropped and are trending below 2019 levels. As mortgage rates remain above 5%, applications have fallen to their lowest level in 22 years. 

Still, neither home prices nor mortgage rates are expected to plummet and affording a home is likely to remain a challenge for the rest of the year, economists say. Home price gains are slowing, but year-over-year prices are still seeing double-digit increases. And the Federal Reserve announced another rate hike this week, which will keep mortgage rates volatile.

Waiting on the Housing Market to Crash? Don’t, Experts Say. Here’s How Today’s Market Is Different From the Great Recession Housing Bubble

Jon ReedJon Reed 

April 6, 2022 

A photo to accompany a story about the current housing market

Home prices are higher than they’ve ever been, and they show no signs of stopping. 

The median U.S. home listing price was $405,000 in March 2022, the first time it’s broken the $400,000 price threshold, according to data from Realtor.com. That is an increase of 26.5% over two years. 

Homebuyers might see similarities between what’s happening today and the 2006 housing market where home prices became increasingly unaffordable until the bubble burst, helping trigger the worldwide financial crisis we came to call the Great Recession.

Stressed-out buyers might be thinking these high prices are a bubble just waiting to pop again. In fact, 77% of homebuyers believe there’s a bubble where they live, according to a recent Redfin survey.

Mortgage rates rise, inching closer to 5%

By Anna Bahney, CNN business

Updated 10:32 AM EDT, Thu April 7, 2022

Mortgage rates rose again this week, inching closer to 5%. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.72% in the week ending April 7, up from 4.67% the week before, according to Freddie Mac. That’s the highest since December 2018.

Rates have jumped this year at a pace not seen in decades.

“Mortgage rates have increased 1.5% points over the last three months alone, the fastest three-month rise since May of 1994,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “The increase in mortgage rates has softened purchase activity such that the monthly payment for those looking to buy a home has risen by at least 20% from a year ago.”

The Continuing Saga of Brownland Farm Development

By

 Lee Rennick

brownland farmA little over two years ago Michelle and Robin Anderton, who own the land where the much-loved Brownland Farm horse arena and training ground is located, decided to sell the property after Sissie Anderton, who started the farm with her husband Mack, retired. The news of their desire to sell to a developer didn’t go down well with a number of people in the community, and the tale of all they and the developer have gone through to try to turn the property into a housing subdivision has been long and drawn out. Yet, the new Board of Mayor and Alderman recently voted to approve the applicants’ request to rezone the 234 acres from Agriculture District and Civic Institutional District to Planned District, which finally moves the issue forward.

The 12 hottest housing markets in 2022

By Paul Centopani

Though many economists predict that home price growth will slow in 2022, a lack of available inventory will keep things competitive for buyers for the foreseeable future. 

With permanent work-from-home arrangements gaining popularity dynamics shifting, longstanding assumptions about the most popular metropolitan areas for homebuyers have been upended, with less visible markets gaining interest among those searching for a new home, according to the Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2022 report from PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Urban Land Institute.

Home prices climbed in January as inventory fell to a new record low.

Home prices up 15.4% in January from a year ago

Anna Bahney byline

By Anna Bahney, CNN Business

 

Updated 12:25 PM ET, Fri February 18, 2022

The median price for a home last month was $350,300, up 15.4% from a year ago, according to the National Association of Realtors. It was not the highest median price on record, which was $362,800 last June, but it is the highest for the month of January, which tends to be a sleepier time for home sales.

"Buyers were likely anticipating further rate increases and locking in at the low rates, and investors added to overall demand with all-cash offers," said Lawrence Yun, NAR's chief economist. "Consequently, housing prices continue to move solidly higher."
