Crisis in China and the Stock Market – How will it affect real estate in 2016? Plus, we review The Big Short

Welcome to 2016, a year that has started out very rocky with a lot of uncertainty as it relates to stocks, oil, housing and China. Here’s my take on things. Yes I’m a real estate business owner but the way I look at it, everyone has their own biased opinions of things based on how they invest or where they work. Let’s first talk about the housing market and how it’s different now than it was during the subprime crisis 2005-2010.

“The Big Short” came out over the Christmas holiday and I had a chance to see it. It was as I expected, a great movie because it showed what went on behind the scenes with the guys who truly saw how bad these loans were and weren’t blowing smoke at their investors.  The movie focused on how the subprime mortgage market was packaging the subprime loans into tranches (pools or bundles) and selling them as triple AAA rated bonds to offset the risk. Many of those bonds were sold to pension funds, cities, countries, all around the world and the money taken in was insane. This created even more demand for more mortgages so what did the lenders do? They lowered the criteria for borrowers. Lower FICO scores, no assets, no income verification, that sort of thing. Lenders used to say “if you could fog a mirror, you could get a loan.”

  I was working as a real estate agent and investor during that time period. I worked with investors who would come to Vegas all excited at the prospect of becoming an investor and getting a piece of the appreciation pie. These investors could get as many as 10 loans. It was a crazy time. Then the market turned. I remember the end of summer  2008 after a couple of years of slower appreciation and longer sales cycles, Bear Stearns crashed, Lehman Bros. crashed. I was working as the broker of a company called Investment Riches and  I came up the elevator to our office and the doors opened and our receptionist was right there with a flat screen TV on behind her which always had CNBC playing and all the guys from the office were standing around her podium in disbelief at how much the market was down. There were days in a row of 400-700 point drops. It felt like a free fall. I had to get on the phones and call real estate investors around the country to drum up business and everyone was in a sell position, nobody was buying. I also worked for a bank called Indymac which became OneWest  and my job was to dispose of their assets. I had to quote them what I could sell their properties for in 45 days or less. The market was correcting so fast we had to guess the monthly declines and even the appraisers were bidding 5% below each last sale so their numbers would be conservative and accurate. Basically lenders went from not caring about the homebuyer’s credit or income to the opposite where you could have an A+ borrower with excellent credit, but the asset became the primary concern. “Will the house go down in value” was a bigger problem because if you lend money at 90% with the borrower putting up 10% of their own funds, and the market declines 20% then you have an upside down asset and unfortunately for many buyers, they hated the idea of paying a monthly payment on an asset that kept losing money. The market in Vegas declined 30% in 3 months and 50%-60% in the next couple of years. There are still many areas that haven’t fully recovered.

  Fast  forward to 2016. That market is behind us now. We’ve all learned some lessons. Lenders and appraisers are much more responsible. The subprime loan doesn’t exist. Adjustable rate mortgages (ARMS) are a 4 letter word for borrowers. Will that always be the case? I highly doubt it. It’s all supply and demand, basic economics. If there’s not a lot of demand for loans, new products get created. For now though, we won’t see another “Big Short” due to subprime. Typically subprime is considered anything below a FICO credit score of 640.  Even for the 97% LTV (loan to value) products, (which I agree are more risky because the borrower has so little equity) the minimum FICO score for both Fannie and Freddie’s 97% LTV product is 660.

  The San Diego County market didn’t suffer the way Las Vegas, Miami, and Phoenix did. The market in San Diego has been strong and healthy and the lows during the crisis didn’t reach percentages where buyers walked away.  Plus there was never the high percentage of vacant listings here in San Diego County. The inventory here never got out of control. Check out the data on the current inventory and prices in San Diego county herehttp://chriswhittaker.sdcountyhomehunter.com/areas/San_Diego

  Zillow reports a 6.8% appreciation rate for San Diego in 2015 and predicts 3% for 2016 which is healthy and in line with normal inflation rates. See the graphs and data for Zillow in San Diego here:http://www.zillow.com/san-diego-ca/home-values/

Along with “normal” appreciation rates we have an unemployment rate in San Diego County which is at 4.6% compared to 5.7% last year https://ycharts.com/indicators/san_diego_ca_unemployment_rate

  The unemployment rate for San Diego County is another factor which shows the strength of the real estate market for our area. Yes, there are companies that out-migrate to states like Texas, Florida and Nevada, but when it comes to healthcare, science and technology, military, it seems that we’re in a sort of hub, much like Silicon Valley has their technology hub.

  The last factor which will keep the housing market strong in this area of the country is mortgage rates. Mortgage interest rates are still below 4% at the time of this publishing. You can check rates here: http://www.bankrate.com/california/mortgage-rates.aspx

 With all the news about the Fed raising rates in December, many real estate buyers got nervous about how that will affect their interest rate on their home loan. The good news is that mortgage rates are more a reflection of the 10 year bond yield, not Fed rates. This is because even though buyers take out a 30 year mortgage, most are sold or refinanced in a 10 year cycle. Quick interest rate discussion:  investors turn to bonds as a safe investment when the economic outlook is poor (this can be based on the stock market performance or unemployment or GDP numbers depending on the investor).  When purchases of bonds increase, the yield falls, and so do mortgage rates. But when the economy is expected to do well, investors jump into stocks, forcing bond prices lower and pushing the yield (and mortgage rates) higher.

– 10-year bond yield up, mortgage rates up.

– 10-year bond yield down, mortgage rates down.

It’s not always so simple, but for the most part this is how it works. A good way to predict which way mortgage rates are headed is to look at the 10-year bond yield. You can find it on finance websites alongside other stock tickers, or in the newspaper.  If it’s moving higher, mortgage rates probably are too.  If it’s dropping, mortgage rates may be improving as well.

 So here we are at the beginning of 2016 and we’re hearing about the stock market being halted twice this week in China and a currency crisis of sorts and China has even changed the rules about selling shares. It’s certainly a mess over there. Here’s more information about the China stock and currency crisishttp://money.cnn.com/2016/01/06/investing/china-stocks-halted/

  What we saw a few years back when the Chinese real estate market started crashing was an exodus out of China and into the U.S.  Chinese buyers went to London and Australia first but then prices became insane and to Chinese buyers, our prices are reasonable, even in places like L.A., Seattle, N.Y.C. and San Diego. Our neighbor to the north, Irvine, CA reports that 80% of their buyers are Chinese. Realty Trac reports a Chinese buyer increase of 229% in the past 10 years! http://www.realtytrac.com/news/company-news/share-of-chinese-speaking-buyers-paying-cash-for-u-s-homes-increased-229-percent-in-the-past-10-years/

  That trend will continue in full force.  Foreign buyers love our beautiful, clean neighborhoods, our healthy air, our trustworthy title insurance, higher education, and on and on. I can’t predict if the Chinese government will change the rules but right now it can be easy to purchase in the U.S. for Chinese nationals. I think real estate has once again become a strong place to put large sums of money and hold for a 10+ year period. The real estate market has a 7 year cycle for buyers and sellers. We are entering a hold period where it may be more beneficial to hold than sell so if you’re planning to sell in the next few years, I think 2016 is the year to do it. If you’re a buyer, this is a great year to get in while rates are still amazing, I think as interest rates go up which they will do as long as our economy stays where it currently is or improves more, prices may decline a bit but with higher interest rates the payment stays about the same so if you’re financially able to buy and see yourself living in this home for 5+ years, 2016 is the time to pull the trigger. Buyers need to focus on the neighborhood. Find homes with great schools, parks, amenities, location and possibly room for improvement. Additions and renovations are great value adds and will get you the most return when you sell.

The most important decision you can make with your money is to plan, to think for yourself. Don’t get glued to the news or CNBC because you will become utterly confused. One day it’s up, one day it’s down. This will lead to a mindset full of indecision and uncertainty. Make a decision, gather information and data, then go forward and make things happen for you and your family. Give us a call any time. We are here to answer your questions.

All the best  in 2016!

10 REASONS WHY WE LOVE LIVING IN SAN ELIJO HILLS AND WHY WE THINK YOU WILL TOO

San Elijo Hills Real Estate for sale

We’ve been living in San Elijo Hills since April 2011 and we absolutely love it. We moved to San Elijo Hills primarily for the schools because we had a 4 year old and a baby on the way, for the newer construction and the magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean. Even though the demand for San Elijo Hills real estate was incredibly strong and finding a place was difficult, we did it. Here’s why it’s worth the effort to call this community home:

10. The ocean views from all over the village. Whether you’re up at Double Peak or driving down San Elijo, the panoramic ocean views are always outstanding, even on hazy days.

360* Panoramic Mountain to Ocean Views from the top of  Double Peak

9. Miles of trails right in our backyard. If you’re a trail runner, mountain biker or day hiker, this is the place to be. 18 miles of trails connect throughout the community and the terrain varies from steep and rocky to paved. We’ve been here for almost 5 years and we still find new ways to trail blaze. Ridegline is one of our favorite trailheads, with lake and ocean views, the chance to see local wildlife, lots of native plants and flowering bushes and even people riding horses.

8. Top ranked schools. San Elijo Elementary and San Elijo Middle School are both right in the heart of the San Elijo Hills village. San Elijo Elementary has a great student/teacher ratio, amazing activities and a very active PTO. The middle school was awarded the California Distinguished School honor in the past.  Double Peak, a K through 8 school, is under construction and should be open for the new school year.

7. San Elijo AYSO Soccer. The San Marcos AYSO soccer program in San Elijo Hills is amazing. Our son participates in the soccer clinics, summer camp and different soccer teams throughout the year. The games and clinics are all here in the soccer fields of San Elijo. If you’re ready to step up your game, try-outs for Matrix, the popular competitive team are in January.

6. San Elijo and Questhaven parks. The San Elijo Park features upper and lower softball fields, a nice dog park, multiple play structures, large soccer fields, horseshoe pits, covered picnic areas, a giant chess board, a water park and winding trails with grassy rest spots along the way. The San Elijo Hills community features events like an Easter Egg Hunt, concerts by the junior high band, Octoberfest and a Tree Lighting in December and many more. This area is vibrant and social.

Acres of rolling green hills, softball and soccer fields, parks, horseshoe pits, picnic areas and a dog park. Life is Good in the 'Hood!

Ball fields for men, women and children. Well lit, perfect for practice year round.

5. Variety of types of real estate. This is one of the few neighborhoods in San Diego that features live/work townhouses right in the village. This is where you can have a work/retail space in the walkable village. There are also mansions high on the hill with panoramic views.  There are gated townhouse communities, loft style condos, large homes with giant homesites and swimming pools in gated neighborhoods and starter homes within walking distance to the elementary school. Prices range from $400,000 for a smaller 2 bedroom, 3 story condo to $1.5 Million for 5000 sq.ft. mansions with ocean views.

4. Everything is walking distance and in close proximity. The village of San Elijo Hills offers everything from pizza and beer to small plates and cabernet. Stoked is an excellent cafe with a fireplace and patio area behind it and room for events. Epoch is a beautiful wine bar with flat bread and appetizers.

2. New construction. One of the great things about San Elijo Hills is the age of the homes. There’s nothing wrong with older homes it’s just that if you’re used to new homes or you’re moving from a part of the country where new construction is common, it’s a request that’s hard to satisfy in many parts of San Diego County. San Elijo Hills is a neighborhood built in the early 2000’s and there are homes still being built today at the top of the hill. The materials, appliances, structure, A/C units, plumbing, electric wiring and floorplans are all newer which makes home buyers very happy.

1. Peace of Mind.  As a resident of San Elijo Hills since 2011, we’ve been very lucky to never experience any hostility, security issues or problems with our neighbors and our homes. We’ve lived in two different neighborhoods in San Elijo Hills and we’ve felt very safe and secure walking around day or night. There’s no guarantee that it’ll always be this way but for the most part our friends in the area would agree. We’ve walked to the village at night and we’ve gone through the parks and trails in the early morning and never felt a threat and that’s a great feeling. Most are very neighborly here and there are several private groups on Facebook for the women, for business owners, for exercise meet-ups and more. We really watch out for each other, keep an eye on each other’s kids, pay attention to safety on the roads and of course work out and have fun together! We have made some great life long friends here.
