Update on the Housing Market - You Won't believe what's happening

All that talk about higher interest rates and home prices falling - THEY WERE DEAD WRONG!

Check out these updates courtesy from one of our Trusted Lenders, Kevin Budde, President of Monarch Coast Financial NMLS 325450

CoreLogic reported Wednesday Southern California home sales rose in July from a year earlier. The six county median price climbed 1.9% in July, and it was the first sales price increase in 12 months. Home sales gained 3.7% when compared to July of 2018. The contributing factors for the improvement included falling mortgage rates, moderating prices and a rise in inventory. Of the six county Southern California region, Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties had the largest price gains and San Diego and Ventura Counties had the largest sales gains. Orange County was close to flat in both categories.

Home Affordability is Up Despite Rising Home Prices

First American Financial reported this week that home affordability is up despite rising home prices. Average hourly earnings grew 3.3% year over year, equivalent to a 2.4% increase in household income while mortgage rates dropped between June 2018 and June 2019. The net effect is consumer house buying power increased 12.2% compared to one year ago.

Stated Income Loans Available for Self-Employed Borrowers

Vacation Rentals are becoming more and more popular as an alternative to hotels and can be a great investment.
