That's right. 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. On top of that, the latest real estate numbers for Santa Clara County is EXACTLY what I have been predicting. Make s…

Another painful record broken as the affordability of homes 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.…
 
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 headlin…

UPDATE: I have updated this weeks show to now include the last 10 minutes. Apolgies to my folks who consume the show right when it comes out! The cutoff point was 35 minutes - so you can just fast forward to that point to get what you missed! We are not quite ready to look at the full data for July 2022. However, my weekly 7 day snapshots of real e…

Things are happening fast! In todays show we pass around an idea. Does it matter what starts an economic downturn? When we had the big real estate bubble, car loans got hit to. Now that car loans have apparently been as stupidly handled as mortgages were in the early 2000s, can we expect a fast follow on downturn in the housing market? I tend to th…
 
The chief economist for the National Association of Realtors took a look at the most recent inflation numbers - along with other economists - and projects increases in mortgage rates making a steeper climb. We will chat about this and consider the possibility that no one is prepared for what really needs to happen to interest rates to really make a…
 
It is time for a glimpse into the crystal ball and see if we can't use information we have today to estimate what is coming. There are several interesting trends that tend to feed the idea that something bad is around the corner, so today, we will review them and see what we might think they will do to our real estate markets. Also, don't forget th…

This week, we are going to gaze into the crystal ball. Several things are going on right now that I believe set the stage for a potentially market killing outcome. Follow along with me in todays show and see if you agree. If I am right, we could be heading into some very tough times over the next few years.…
 
Home inventory is ramping up at a pace that I don't think anyone could have imagined just a few weeks ago. In addition, despite recent news that home starts have dropped, we will still see a solid increase in home completions in 2022. I think that spells potential opportunity for buyers and investors and possibly a warning to home owners. So in thi…

While Michael can clearly offer insights for real estate agents that want to improve their business, his experience can also help buyers, sellers and investors in their real estate journey. Today we will take some time to chat about the big topics…
 
The folks over at realtor.org are reporting that the national inventory of homes increased 11% when compared to the same time last year. This is definitely information worth remembering since, as I have suggested for years now, this is all about inventory. We take that national number and we bring it down to the local level and take a look at the h…
 
The real estate industry has done a good job on selling the public on the idea that a "Top 1%" agent is the best choice to get the best results. The truth is that the criteria used to define if an agent is in the top 1% has nothing to do with what you as a buyer, seller or investor wants or needs in their transaction. In fact, because these agents …
 
Initial indicators are in and suggest we prepare for 'Recession 2022'! Are we in a recession? ​Right now, we have hit declining GDP for the first quarter. Indicators are there, but for many we are not 'officially' in a recession. However, the question is not will be hit a recession at this point, but when. What is a recession? Big declines in econo…
 
Welcome to Monday folks! Today we are discussing what the metros with the highest price gains are and how we can use that information to make smarter decisions as buyers, sellers and investors. These are not the most expensive metros, but areas where the highest percentage increase has happened. So join me for the discussion of these areas while we…
 
Check out this list of 10 cities where realtor.com is reporting home prices are actually dropping! Are they really? Join me as we review the list and separate the hype from the reality - because the story they are trying to tell with their headline is NOT what is actually going on in these areas. https://www.realtor.com/news/trends/where-home-price…
 
I don't often do interviews on Real Estate Realities, but this one really grabbed me! One of the ways to approach real estate is through land. We have brought up land before in the context of strategies to get your first home by building it yourself. Today, Brent is going to offer us strategies that can not only get you started with that effort, bu…
 
Huge real estate investors are loving the student housing market. In fact, the American Campus Communities organization was recently purchased for $12.8 Billion! Keeping your eye on options, this kind of interest should suggest you consider student housing as one of your options - even if you have no interest in it right now, you can always keep th…
 
The average interest rate nationally for a 30 year fixed rate loan hit 5%. As I suggested in the past, I thought 5% might just be the magic number that pushes a bigger change in the mindset of buyers. In todays show, we will discuss interest rates and as we usually do, what it means for buyers, sellers and investors.…
 
We chatted about real estate 'love letters' in a podcast last year. The state of Oregon felt that they needed to weigh in on the subject of whether or not buyers should be allowed to submit a letter with their offer on a home. The idea that any law makers would think they have the authority to so fundamentally interfere with the right to free speec…
 
In todays show we look at the real Foreclosures in 2022 data and just how worried you should be! The Current Headlines ​We are all busy. Which means that we spend a great deal of time skimming the news rather than reading it.
