Median Home Price, Meet Median Buyer  A very long time ago I saw an email address that read 'averageandhappy@...' and I thought, "Wow, here I've been my whole life trying not to be mediocre and then someone just goes and finds happiness in all of it." I wasn't sure if I should be resentful or relieved... Years have passed and I've had the opportunity to observe the real estate market in my corner of the universe, namely the San Francisco Bay Area, which includes Marin County, the city of SF, Oakland/East Bay and the Silicon Valley.  Few would consider this an "average" market for a number of reasons, but our high prices stand out as the most obvious one. Here in the summer of 2021, Marin County's median (half above/half below) home price is hovering right about $1.7MM.  And I think the ...

Glen Park, San Francisco, CA Community and Real Estate InformationGlen Park is a hilltop community in the city of San Francisco, California, located in the south-central part of the city. The neighborhood is located on the southeastern edge of the Central Hills' San Miguel Range, with views of the city's attractive suburban districts.

The project included a large recreational area that was integrated into beautiful suburban parts. The community's main selling feature became Glen Park and Mission Zoo, which drew families to a rather remote neighborhood. The Glen Park area has a wide range of architectural styles.

Haight Ashbury, San Francisco, CA Community and Real Estate InformationThe Haight-Ashbury area is located west of San Francisco's Downtown District. The neighborhood is located to the east of Golden Gate Park, south of The Panhandle, and northwest of Buena Vista Park. With the installation of the Haight cable car line in 1883, the neighborhood grew from various farms and acres of dunes into an entertainment destination. Through continual gentrification, Haight-Ashbury evolved into an upper-middle-class area as San Francisco became more urbanized. During the 1960s, the neighborhood was also home to a strong hippie and activist culture. There was a lot of media attention in the area because of the significant music and cultural influences anchored in this community. The many music clubs, ...

Is the end of our current market near? I read recently that the number of June 2021 listings was up 10.9% compared to May 2021 and up 5.5% year to year. This was according to Realtor.com. According to the Fannie Mae's Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI), respondents who think now is a good time to sell shot up from 67% to 77%, while those who feel now is a bad time to buy rose from 56% to 64%. So if more home owners start to list their homes for sale but more home buyers think now is a bad time to buy that's bound to change things up.  Will homes start staying on the market longer? Will multiple offers be a thing of the past? Currently here in the Central Valley of California, like a lot of other places in the country, we have a very low inventory of homes for sale and lots of buyers. ...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  Today, we have IHS Markit PMI releasing their 2 reports, Manufacturing and Services.  The Services sector dropped down to 59.7; however, the Manufacturing sector rose to 63.1 in July.  Stocks continue their upward trend, based on Q2 Corporate Earnings Reports and keeping an eye toward next week's schedule of events (Q2 Earnings Reports for much of the High Tech Companies and FOMC).  MBS started the morning much lower, which Lenders whom release their ratesheets earlier on may have priced for the worse; however, MBS is Up 6bps.  So, Mortgage Rates should be priced now to the same pricing we found after yesterday's close.  Meanwhile, Yields are sticking around the 1.29%.Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel at MikesDailyMarketRptAlso, these videos are ...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  The Initial Jobless Claims spiked last week to 419k (breaking back above the 400k level).  The good news is the Continued Claims dropped slightly.  NAR reported that Existing Home Sales increased from 5.78 million annualized units in May to 5.86 million in June.  Lastly, the Leading Indicators shows a 0.7% improvement for the month of June.  Stocks continue to rise today on continued strong Q2 Corporate Earnings releases.  MBS and Yields got a boost from the ECB's announcement today, which was very dovish and Bond friendly.  MBS is Up 19bps, which brings us back to same levels on Monday/Tuesday; whereas, Mortgage Rates improved back to those same levels.  Yields slid down to 1.26%, which is still a little higher than Monday/Tuesday levels.Please subsc...
