Proposal to Delay Prop 19

Taxes & Forbearance – Millions of Americans skipped their monthly mortgage payments due to COVID after federal lawmakers and regulators extended forbearance to mortgage borrowers. Originally borrowers could request up to 12 months of forbearance but was recently extended to 15 months. Be aware that whether you or clients are still in forbearance or resumed making monthly payments at some point in the past year, there could be implications for your taxes, especially if you plan to claim the mortgage interest deduction. (MarketWatch)
Price Projections – Further price increase is expected in the second half of the year, but the pace of growth will moderate, according to CAR’s Housing Market Outlook. The normalization of the mix of sales as the economy recovers and an increase in foreclosed properties as mortgage forbearance is lifted are reasons that could keep prices in check and prevent the statewide median price from rising too fast in the 3rd and 4th quarters. Overall, however, the imbalance between supply & demand will continue to put upward pressure on home prices, and the statewide median price is projected to grow 8.0% in 2021. (C.A.R.)
