Time to Buy – The net share of Americans who say it’s a good time to buy increased 21 percentage points as the net share of “good time to sell” consumers increased 23 percentage points. (Fannie Mae)
Home Prices – Prices continue to level off, improving on a week-to-week basis with a decelerating growth pace. The statewide median price per square foot for homes sold in the week ending June 26 inched up only 0.5% from the previous week, compared to an average gain of 2.7 % in the past three weeks. Also, 22% of REALTORS® who participated in a C.A.R. survey reported that sellers reduced their price to attract buyers in the latest week. The result is consistent with data collected from multiple listing services, which shows a bigger share of listings with price reduction when compared to the week before. (C.A.R.)
COVID Relocation – Millions of Americans relocated this year because of the COVID-19 outbreak, moving out of college dorms that abruptly closed, communities they perceive as unsafe or housing they can no longer afford. Overall, 22% say they either changed their residence due to the pandemic or know someone who did. (Pew Research Center)
New Treasurer – The retirement of Riverside County’s treasurer/tax collector has paved the way for the first African American in county history to be appointed by the Board of Supervisors. Matthew Jennings, assistant treasurer/tax collector, will take over for Jon Christensen when he retires Sept. 23. (SB Sun)
