Hot housing market, with no indication of a cool down, for now.

In last month’s Home Sales Predictor article we said –

 

“Only time will tell if this flattening trend will continue or if we will see a spike later this year. Many of our clients have shared with us they are starting to see more listings in their area so maybe we will still see a spike? What trends are you seeing? Do you think we’ve seen the peak?”

 

And, it appears the flattening has not happened yet. In June there were a record-breaking 636K homes sold across the US. That’s 6% higher than our prediction and 24% higher year-over-year. In fact, that is the most homes sold in a month that we have seen since we started tracking this data back in 2016.

 

July/August Predictions

 

Looking ahead it appears the market will remain hot with a brief slow down expected for July (which is a historical trend) with 587K home sales. That would be an 8% decrease from June and a 4% decrease YOY. We then expect the market to pick right back up to 601K in August. If our prediction holds true that would be a 2% increase from July and a 3% increase YOY.

 

When talking with our data team this month about the Home Sales Predictor one thing we all agreed on was the fact that this is a weird housing market that really feels like the tip of a lot of interesting things happening in the world right now.

 

Especially for us here in the Pacific Northwest. We’ve been living in a market that was mostly closed for the last 15 months, it’s been shocking to see how much has changed in the last two. And, especially in the housing market. A lot has been unpredictable and while we are confident in the data at our fingertips, time will only tell how much wackier this market may get.

 

Institutions vs. Homebuyers

 

Things are starting to look up in the economy as we return to work, travel and entertainment. There are even signs things may change for the better in terms of the housing inventory as lumber prices start to stabilize and housing starts will finally be reviving, but we still have an uphill battle to climb as more and more millennials aim to get into the homeownership game.

 

One of the biggest things at play that we are focusing in on is how much institutional buying is putting pressure on the already shrinking existing home inventory. We’ve been talking for months about the listings shortage vs. inventory shortage, but new data is causing us to take another look when an already pressured consumer market is seeing more pressure from the resurgence of the iBuyers (more on that below) and this further immergence of the institutional buyers that are buying homes and taking them off the market by turning them into rentals.

 

According to a recent Redfin report investors spent a record $77 billion on homes over the past six months compared to the $55 billion that was spent in the second and third quarters of 2020. That’s 1 of every 7 U.S. homes in the first quarter where in the previous three quarters investor bought closer to 1 in 10 homes (Source: HousingWire).

 

That same report shared that “Most [investors] focused on single-family homes, which made up the biggest share of acquisitions and first-quarter growth, year over year. Nearly 39,000 of the 55,000 homes investors bought in Q1 were single-family properties, up 4.8% from last year” and that among those buyers were Invitation Homes and American Homes 4 Rent, both “single-family-rental behemoths.” (source: The Real Deal)

 

So while concerns have been flying around about the resurgence of iBuyers it’s important to note that iBuyers are still only roughly 50% of the way back to their pre-pandemic levels with only 4,383 homes purchased in Q1 of 2021 and only account for 0.5% of homes sold across the U.S. making them nowhere near an immediate threat to our housing shortage.

 

What does the future hold?

 

The market will likely continue at this velocity, but the concerns around intuitional buyers squeezing our inventory opportunities will remain top of mind. Especially for how it can disproportionately impact the lower and middle class and especially for minorities who oftentimes lack the generational wealth to get their foot in the door, especially in a crazy market like this one.

 

And it’s not a great sign when, according to HousingWire “investors gobbled up the largest share of lower-priced homes in the first quarter…One of every five low-priced homes that sold in the U.S. (20.8%) was purchased by an investor, compared to 12.5% of high-priced homes and 11.3% of mid-priced homes.”

 

So, what can you do? 

 

Use your power as a real estate professional to help overrepresent the underrepresented. Try and focus on building your sphere with families to help get them into homes and start building wealth and generating more opportunities for future growth. The more we can build diverse communities the better for society and the better for our future as an industry. Look for the opportunities to make positive change in your community while making sure all the homes on our street aren’t bought up by investors. Be that valuable resource for all of your contacts in your sphere and educate them on the benefits of buying and selling a home in their market to help continue to foster movement and transactions across the industry.

As communities begin to re-open, home sales stabilize

With the exception of 2020, (I wonder how many times that has been said…?) there’s typically a significant month over month increase in home sales in May.

 

In 2017 there was a 21% increase, in 2018 a 15% increase, and in 2019 a 17% increase.

 

In 2021? There was a 1% decrease with 554K home sales. So, could the market finally be flattening out a bit after the last few wild months? We have a few theories why this might be happening which has something to do with a formula of:

 

Low inventory + high velocity + home prices + societal changes = most bizarre year of home sales?

 

We’ve been discussing this low inventory problem for months, but something else important to consider is the velocity at which homes have been selling. Homes are flying off the market faster than they can be listed, which is great for sellers but makes the buyer’s market rough. Very similar to when the job market is tight and prospective employees finally give up after being turned down after their 8th or 15th interview, prospective home buyers at some point and are going to give up.

 

Another reason we see for this slight slow down is all the swift societal changes we are experiencing. People are finally able to be out doing things outside of their homes so their focus is no longer on their home nest. Airbnb released a Report on Travel & Living in May that shows that people are traveling more and for longer, and with their families. Having freedom from being stuck inside our homes day in and day out could really make a difference in the number of home sales we see.

 

June and July Home Sales Predictor

 

So, what could all of this mean for home sales in the coming months?

 

We predict the number of home sales to have a slight increase in June at 601K home sales and July 583K home sales.

 

June MoxiWorks Home Sales Predictor

 

If these predictions hold this would mean June could potentially be our peak so far this year and would be an 8% increase over the previous month and an 18% increase YOY. For July that would be a 3% decrease to the previous month and a 3% decrease year over year.

 

Only time will tell if this flattening trend will continue or if we will see a spike later this year. Many of our clients have shared with us they are starting to see more listings in their area so maybe we will still see a spike? What trends are you seeing? Do you think we’ve seen the peak?

 

See you next month!

New Data Reveals Agents Using MoxiPresent in 2020 did 77% More Transactions than Their Peers

2020 analysis shows increased productivity of real estate agents using the MoxiWorks CMA and presentation tool

 

SEATTLE, Wa. (May 25, 2021) – MoxiWorks, the leading real estate technology platform, released new data this week for their industry-leading CMA and presentation tool, MoxiPresent®. The analysis done by MoxiWorks looked at productivity and MoxiPresent usage in 2020 across 82 brokerages representing nearly 100,000 agents. According to the analysis real estate agents using MoxiPresent did significantly better than their peers who didn’t.

 

According to the analysis, on average, an agent using MoxiPresent in any capacity saw 17% more transactions and 24% higher sales volume than those not using MoxiPresent. Further, those who fully utilized MoxiPresent in their business saw 77% more transactions and 93% higher sales volume than their peers.

 

“It’s clear – while 2020 held many challenges for agents, those who used MoxiPresent outperformed their peers by a landslide,” said York Baur, MoxiWorks CEO. “Analyzing this data proves that, despite the uncertainty and unforeseen challenges of 2020, inventory moved and agents found success.”

 

This data comes after a year when there were 5.65 million home sales despite a pandemic, compared to 5.25 million sold in 2019, and we are tracking to exceed that in 2021 (source). “While we like to fault the market for a lack of listings, inventory is coming and going at exceptional rates, which means there is inventory out there – but only some agents are seeing it,” said Baur. “Those agents are the ones that serve as trusted advisors to their clients, helping them see what’s possible in a difficult market. As a result, they get a disproportionate share of the business.”

 

MoxiPresent enables agents to create CMAs in addition to buyer tours, open house presentations, relocation presentations, neighborhood tours, and so much more, empowering agents to serve as a true consultant with those in their sphere of influence, facilitating everything from listing presentations and pricing conversations to annual property reviews. “These are the agents outperforming their peers and finding 77% more inventory in the midst of a national ‘shortage,’” said Baur.

 

“These agents who are seeing leaps and bounds more business are serving as true consultants to their sphere of influence,” added Baur. “They save time, benefiting from the ease-of-use of integrated property data and they deliver a better experience to their clients. These are agents at brokerages that have invested in tools built on improving agent productivity, and that success is being proven time and time again.”

 

MoxiPresent’s efficacy is tried and true, having been around for almost a decade, continually evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of agents and rising expectations of consumers. More than 3 million presentations have been created using MoxiPresent.

Strong Spring of Home Sales Continue, Stronger Summer Ahead

We are up to our eyeballs in the inventory shortage. You can’t look at one news site without seeing something about the shortage. This has been going on for months and months, so what gives?

 

A few things.

 

First of all, we still strongly believe this is not an inventory shortage, but a listings shortage. The homes and sellers are out there, they just need their trusted real estate agent and advisor (you) to help them understand the value of their home, and how to navigate this frothy market.

 

But there is something even more important than the pandemic that is impacting inventory.

 

Statista_Number of New Homes Built in the US between 1900 and 2019
Source: Statista Sept 2020

 

According to a Statista study in September of 2020, there was a 79% decrease in new homes built between 2010 and 2019. Between 2010 and 2019 there were only 5.8 million new homes built while the three decades before it 27 million, 26 million and 25 million new homes were built respectively. The last time we saw such a low amount of new construction was the 1930s.

 

This stark decrease is certainly a factor in what we are seeing today alongside the pandemic.

 

But, it doesn’t mean there is a reason to panic.

 

The fundamentals of why people move (marriage, divorce, new babies, empty nest, new job, retirement, etc) have not changed and will not change. If anything, the new flexibility so many working adults across the US are seeing with remote work is likely to increase and let them move for work, but on their own terms.

 

And to top this all off, Freddie Mac expects home sales to reach 7.1 million in 2021. 7.1 million homes would be a 25% increase year over year in home sales from 2020 which saw 5.65 million home sales, during a pandemic, while we only say 5.25 million in 2019.

 

If Freddie Mac is correct in their predictions, we should feel hopeful. Those listings have to come through an agent, will it be you?

 

Now let’s dig into April and the upcoming May & June outlook.

 

April Home Sales

April closed out with 539K home sales across the country. That’s 5% less than our prediction of 565K. This was a 3% increase from the home sales in March, but year over year it was a 48% increase. Not at all surprising as April 2020 was when COVID-19 was really setting in across the US and only 364K homes were sold.

 

May and June home sales prediction

Our May prediction has been adjusted slightly from last month and we are now predicting there will be 622K home sales which would be a 15% increase month over month and 72% year over year.

 

Based on the activity inside our MoxiWorks products we predict there will be 650K home sales in June which would be a 5% increase month over month and a 29% increase YOY.

 

MoxiWorks May Home Sales Predictor

 

You control the listings

Our rallying cry remains that you and your agents have the control to make the market. 7.1 million homes won’t sell themselves.

 

So do the thoughtful home property reviews, do the comps analysis, show your clients why selling their home is a good idea. Doing these presentations are proven to make these transactions happen.

 

Our data team just pulled the stats on agents using MoxiPresent with their clients and the results speak for themselves:

 

  • In 2020, agents fully utilizing MoxiPresent did 77% more transactions and saw 93% higher sales volume than those without MoxiPresent.

 

There is a lot to shake out in the market, so let’s stay proactive and persistent, and let’s make the market.

650K homes sales on the horizon in May

 

We know what you are thinking. We are thinking it, too. 650K home sales in May?

 

But this is what our predictor says. Based on the activity inside our products, we predict there will be 650,000 home sales in May.

 

We know that feels high when inventory is low, but as York Baur and Matthew Ferrara discussed last month inventory isn’t the problem, it’s listings. And from the activity we are seeing in our products it seems like listings are on the climb.

 

March Recap

 

In March we ended up with 506K home sales (we predicted 483k so we were within 5% accuracy) which was a 30% increase from the number of home sales in February 2021 and was a 21% increase year-over-year from March 2020. It feels good to see that seasonal increase begin after the strange months we had in January and February. And looking ahead to April and May it looks like we are really back on the upswing.

 

April & May Predictions

 

For April we predict there will 565k home sales which will be an 11% increase in home sales from March 2021 and a 57% increase year-over-year from April 2020. In May our prediction of 650k home sales will be a 15% increase from April and an 82% increase YOY from May 2020. Both a 57% and 82% increase may sound extreme, but it’s unfortunately due to what a scary and uncertain time it was this time last year so it makes complete sense we would see that dramatic of an increase YOY.

 

MoxiWorks April and May Home Sales Predictor

Source: MoxiWorks Apr-May-21 Home Sales Predictor

 

But the good news is everything is continuing to trend up in every way when it comes to real estate activity.

 

As the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel continues to shine brighter more and more homes will be bought and sold as people are starting to re-evaluate how they spend their time, how they work and especially where they live. It’s also clear that the economy “feels” stronger which could be a good sign for home sales and what we are expecting we will see in May.

 

Let’s continue to all make the market.
