Newsletter Update - Oct 2017
I have covered ad nauseam the lack of inventory and pent up demand since the beginning of 2011 and of course we are still experiencing this dynamic in 2017 and most likely all of next year. So when will this all change? Will it be all at once? It's a really tough set of questions to answer but it will most definitely not be all at once. You won't see a flood of homes for sale next year just because the so called 7 year cycle is due. You won't see a huge jump in interest rates as well as that would stall the market completely. I think we will see a more systematic increase next year as sooner or later buyers will hit a breaking point. When buyers stop offering on homes right away, inventory naturally increases as homes stay on the market longer. We are so conditioned to properties lasting less than a week on the market. The market is also very localized. We don't see as many move up sellers/buyers in Torrance compared to the Beach Cities, (Hermosa, Redondo, Manhattan or Palos Verdes.) Homeowners in Torrance stay in their homes longer. It's not to say they don't relocate but the vast majority do not. That is why there is so little inventory.
