Is Another Bubble Forming?
After the housing market bust we experienced across the country in 2008, many experts have been quick to warn that a new bubble may be forming in some areas.
One particular example of this is a recentarticlepointing toward the California Bay Area’s price gains over the last 18 months.
The quickest and easiest way to show how far we’ve come and how far we still need to go in regards to the ‘Peak’ is to shareCoreLogic’s Price & Time Since Peakfigures, used to create the map below.
Even with the high performance of prices in the Bay Area, the state of California as a whole is still -14.4% below their Peak, experienced in May of 2006.
The biggest challenge facing the housing market’s recovery right now is thelack of inventoryavailable for sale. Prices are determined by supply and demand. Right now buyer demand is out-pacing seller supply, across many price ranges, driving prices up.
Traditionally the Spring months have been the mostpopular datessellers choose to list their homes. With additional inventory coming to market soon, it would be my pleasure to meet with you personally to evaluate your best course of action.
