Real Estate Trends - Palmdale, Lancaster, Sep 27, 12  So we are into fall with the cold weather just around the corner as Realtors in the high desert we tend to enjoy the coming of the chill.  Well enough about the weather, as real estate goes we are in a strange situation, very low inventory with increasing sales, but prices are not rising as they should.  It appears there is some pressure on the lending side as well and appraisers to be extra fussy these days.  Right now is the best time to buy a home period.  Prices are heavily discounted from past years; interest rates are under 4%. If you are looking to list your home with an established team that knows how to get top dollar give Janet a call.

Real Estate Trends - Palmdale, Lancaster, Aug 30, 2012  It been a month or so since I’ve posted to ActiveRain, however I’m back in the swing with all the family business done for now.  So let’s take a look at the Real Estate market in the Antelope Valley, starting with Palmdale, Short Sale and Foreclosures are gone, history for now, Traditional Sales are back in vogue.  We are keeping a close eye on this trend and believe we could see a return of homeowners listing short in the months to come but the numbers are going to be lower then we have seen in recent memory.  Bank owned homes are all but dead banks are approving short sale these days.  I will give you a update on Lancaster in tomorrows post.

Real Estate Trends - Palmdale, Lancaster, July 10, 2012  On these hot dogs days of summer real estate is all over the place.  Buyers were holding back in May and June but are now starting to check things out.  To bad we just don’t have the inventory right now.  Bank owned homes under 50 units, Short Sales under 70 units.  The deals are still here but you need to move fast and have your loan in the works and cash for you down and closing cost in the bank.  As for prices in the Antelope Valley, Palmdale and Lancaster they are holding for the most part, however with inventories so low they will rise but we just can’t tell when.

    It would seem to me that the Federal Government programs would be exempt from state taxes.  It would seem (this time) that the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) might be correct regarding the Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac programs.  These programs should not be taxed by the state or local governments.  There could be several transfers before the property is finally sold.  More costs to a transaction? Let’s see what happens.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From Realtor Magazine - FHFA Tries to Halt Real Estate Transfer Taxes   Daily Real Estate News | Monday, June 25, 2012   Joining other states considering similar moves across the country, the Illinois Department of Revenue plans to bring taxes...

We have learned that four equity firms with a total of two billion dollars are actively buying homes in Southern California.  San Bernardino and the Antelope Valley are seeing 20 to 30 per week bought by these corporate buyers.  These buyers are not low-ball buyers--either their offers are within 5,000 dollars of asking or sometimes over.  These equity firms are buying mainly single-family homes ranging from below 100,000 to the low 200,000’s.  These homes are becoming rentals and could be held for 5 to 7 years. The question is how with this affect the real estate in the short term.  As more and more homes in the Antelope Valley move from ownership to rentals will sellers start to run away?  Will all these rentals hold down prices?  What about the long term?  Let’s say these equity firm...

Real Estate Trends - Palmdale, Lancaster, June 15, 2012  Is it a buyer market?  If you ask buyers they would say yes and they would be dead wrong.  It seems buyers are still thinking we are in the market of 2008 and 2009 and sellers are desperate.  Seller to buyers no more low offers!  We are at the start of a new sellers market in the Antelope Valley Palmdale and Lancaster has seen the available inventory is historically low.  Distress properties like short sale and bank owned homes combined are only 37% of the market wile Traditional Sale are 63% hand have been climbing since February 2012.  The Antelope Valley Palmdale and Lancaster market has already moved through over 15,000 distress homes back in 2008/09.  Janet O'Brian is a Certified Short Sales Specialist in California is ready...

Real Estate Trends - Palmdale, Lancaster, June 6, 12  Are we in for a wild time this summer as inventory shrinks, prices are surly going to rise combined with low mortgage rates if you’re in the market to buy a home now is the time.  In Palmdale California we have only 225 Single Family Homes listed on our MLS, Lancaster 331.  These numbers should be alarming in many ways; first without enough homes available to buyers bidding wars are coming back, bad for buyers. Secondly builders should see this as a signal to start building new homes, but with the economy not growing as well as we would like we could see them slow to pull the trigger. Lastly sellers are still under water, selling short is 30% of the market.  Add in bank owned homes, we are at 45% of the market which adds downwards pr...
