  • 9:04 AM » California: "Housing market falters for fourth straight month", Inventory up 17.2% YoY
    Published Tue, Sep 18 2018 9:04 AM by Calculated Risk Blog
    The CAR reported: California's housing market falters for fourth straight month as high home prices take toll on demand, C.A.R. reports California's housing market dropped below the 400,000-level sales benchmark for the first time in more than two years as high home prices and eroding affordability combined to cut into housing demand, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) said today. Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 399,600 units in August, according to information collected by C.A.R. from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. The statewide annualized sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2018 if sales maintained the August pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales. August's sales figure was down 1.8 percent from the revised 406,920 level in July and down 6.6 percent compared with home sales in August 2017 of 427,630. "Home sales activity remained on a downward trend for the fourth straight month as uncertainty about the housing market continues to mount," said C.A.R. President Steve White. "Buyers are being cautious and reluctant to make a commitment as they are concerned that home prices may have peaked and instead are waiting until there's more clarity in the market." "While home prices continued to rise modestly in August, the deceleration in price growth and the surge in housing supply suggest that a market shift is underway ," said C.A.R. Senior Vice President and Chief Economist Leslie Appleton-Young. "We are seeing active listings increasing and more price reductions in the market, and as such, the question remains, 'How long will it take for the market to close the price expectation gap between buyers and sellers?'" ... Statewide active listings rose for the fifth...
