Five Reasons Experts Say No Housing Market Crash in 2022

It may be hard to believe, but the South Florida real estate market is quickly approaching the conclusion of its second full calendar year of record-shattering pace. Homes and condos are still selling nearly as quickly as they were at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and setting new highs along the way. 

With respect to Mr. Gordon Gekko, many real estate experts and economists—not to mention home buyers and sellers—aren’t convinced that all this greed is good. Headlines abound regarding a potential housing crash which would rival that of the late ‘00s. While it’s true that some cherry-picked data trends could cause concern, the fact of the matter is we find ourselves in a far different climate; one that could actually turn out positively for

The Recipe for our 3rd Quarter 2021 Florida Housing Market

Here’s the Recipe for Our 3rd Quarter 2021 Florida Housing Market: Take one large housing-supply shortage; add a global pandemic, economic shutdown, and supply chain shortages; mix in rapid population growth, and you will yield today’s residential real estate market.

At a national level, we’re seeing record gaps in housing supply and demand. The US Census reveals 12.3 million households were established between January 2012 and June 2021. Compare this to the 7 million new single-family homes constructed during that time.

South Florida's Rising Rents and Cost of Living

South Florida’s rental market has long been less-than-ideal for non-homeowners.

Landlords operated happily within the free market, raising their rates and easily finding plenty of takers ready to bask in the temperate weather and vibrant culture that our region offers. Those whose bank accounts couldn’t keep up were hastily left behind.

The past year seems to have accelerated the trend even more as too few new apartments have been built, and affordable housing has become even more scarce. Renters seemingly have little to no control of the market, making Florida one of the worst locations in the country to rent in. This reality has re-started the conversation over rent control—a proposal that has always failed in the past; but with examples set

How's the South Florida real estate market?

Reflection...  Looking back and looking ahead

To sum up Florida’s real estate market for the first half of 2021, one word comes to mind: unexpected. Florida has long enjoyed an influx of residents migrating from across the country, and around the world, to call the Sunshine State home. With remote work becoming a permanent option, over 900 people per day are moving to Florida, according to the Palm Beach County Business Development Board. Reasons for this explosive growth in Florida can point to fair weather, a business-friendly climate, and the lack of state income and estate tax.

Low-interest rates continue to fuel affordability and drive high absorption

Reflection...  Looking back and looking ahead

After wrapping up a year to remember in 2020, Compass is proud to share our first Florida market report of the year, showcasing data from Q1 for South Florida, North Florida, Southwest Florida, Central Florida, and the Greater Tampa Bay. While not all facets of life have returned to prepandemic norms, especially as it relates to the international travel that injects additional movement in the housing market, real estate nationwide has benefited from signs of recovery including an increase in consumer expenditure, vaccination distribution, a decrease in unemployment from 14.7% to 6% (BLS.GOV), and an acceleration of

How's the South Florida real estate market?

As we enter 2021, we’re taking a moment to reflect on a quarter that closed out one of the most unique years of our lives.

Last year taught us that home is so much more than the place where you sleep at night. As the lines in our lives began to blur, so did the way we experienced home. A formal dining table that was once merely for show moonlighted as our childrens’ desks as they navigated a new world of virtual learning. Kitchens previously used for an occasional dinner were enhanced with new gadgets and recipe books, as millions of US residents tried their hands at bread-making, cocktail-mixing, and getting that restaurant-worthy recipe “just right”.

Real Estate Market Trends Expected in 2021

Real estate has shifted from the COVID-19 pandemic with a hot seller’s market, with increased demand as more people are looking to move and mortgage rates are at record lows, coupled with limited supply. The real estate experts at HomeLight uncovered some of the hottest trends shaping real estate in 2021, with 7 key insights that can help buyers and sellers stay informed as they make their next moves. 

Inventory lags

There are a lot of factors that have led to the seller's market, and one of the major ones is low inventory.

How's the South Florida real estate market?

The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the way we live, work, socialize, and shop, but Florida real estate remains resilient as buyers look for more space and good deals. While Q3 is typically a slower market, the desire for more space and the pause in closing activity in April caused pent-up demand. In higher price ranges, including the ultra-luxury sector, little inventory has been left on the table. Across the state, months of single-family-home inventory, based on closed sales, was down year-over-year to 36.1% in Palm Beach County.  Think about that for a minute; there are 36% fewer homes available on the market in 2020 than there were one year ago in 2019.

As we approach the end of yet another year, one of the biggest questions on most everyone's minds, especially those of us in the real estate industry, is "what is going to happen next year?"  Brad Inman of Inman.com recently reviewed his past predictions about the real estate market, some of which came true and some not.
