Are Manufactured Homes the Alternative?
With the dramatic rise of home prices, affordable housing solutions like manufactured homes may be more suitable for homebuyers looking for a starter home or seeking to downsize. Can the industry overcome the lack of awareness and misperceptions?
Housing 2021 – Housing activity is expected to remain strong in 2021, but sector growth will likely decelerate from the torrid pace set in the second half of 2020. While the ESR Group expects home sales to rise 3.8% in 2021, the monthly pace is likely to slow through much of the year. Home price appreciation is also expected to slow along a similar timeline. (Fannie Mae)
Sales Stats – Existing, single-family home sales totaled 509,750 in December on a seasonally adjusted annualized rate, up 0.2% from November and up 28% from December 2019. The statewide median home price was $717,930, up 2.7% from November and up 16.8% from December 2019. (C.A.R.)
Effective February – Proposition 19, which narrowly passed in the fall, will require people who inherit property to use it as their primary residence or have its tax value reassessed starting in February. Watch the video to hear Paul Velasco explain this and more.
