San Diego Home Prices Slightly Down in April

San Diego County home prices dipped a bit in April, according to data released today from San Diego based company DataQuick Information Systems.

The stats for April show a median price of $321,750 for all home sold, down 1.1% from April, 2010, and down 1% from this March. Sales volume was also down slightly from last April, showing a .5% decrease, but up 7% from March, with 3,277 total sales.

A big contributing factor to this decline is that the lending environment is still challenging for borrowers. But, the good news is that interest rates have hit a new 2011 low this week.

At Neely, Barrow & Associates we have found that this continued pressure on prices, accompanied by historically low interest rates, and the increase of spring inventory has brought out quite a few buyers. We are especially seeing a lot of investors flooding the market as they know that San Diego real estate is on sale and now is the time to buy!

Home Prices in San Diego Likely to Increase 4.7% in 2010 and Hit Bottom Nationwide in March

Home prices in San Diego, CA are predicted to increase 4.7% in 2010 according to a report by First American CoreLogic's Loan Performance Home Price Index. The report, which measures home prices in 45 of the nation's largest housing markets, expects prices to fall nationwide another 4.2% before they hit bottom in March of 2010. This report also predicts an increase in home prices of 1% nationwide by October of 2010.

This is great news for San Diego home owners, but the report does warn that these predictions could be dragged down by bank's "shadow inventory" homes that have been foreclosed but have yet to hit the market.

First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit Extended and Expanded to Include Move Up Buyers

I have been a bad blogger and haven't posted for quite a while (I think since July!). But, I'm back with some great news for not only first time buyers, but for move up buyers as well. Both the Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives have voted to extend the first-time home buyer tax credit, and have expanded the credit to include existing homeowners as well. Now the final step will be for President Obama to sign the legislation, which he is expected to do shortly. (**Update - 11/6/09 - President Obama signed the bill today.**)

With this move, the federal tax credit will be extended through April 30, 2010, with a 60-day extension if a binding contract to purchase a home is in place prior to the deadline. First-time home buyers will continue to be eligible for a tax credit of up to $8,000, while existing homeowners will be eligible for a reduced credit of up to $6,500. To qualify for the $6,500 credit, existing homeowners must have lived in their current residences for at least five years. The bill also increases the qualifying income limits from $75,000 for single tax filers and $150,000 for joint filers to $125,000 and $225,000, respectively. The purchase price of the home is capped at $800,000 in both instances. With the extension and expansion of this credit, taxpayers can claim the credit on purchases completed in 2010 on their 2009 income tax returns.

The National Association of Realtors estimates that nationwide, more than 1.4 million first-time home buyers were given the opportunity to become homeowners as a result of the original first-time home buyer tax credit. With the extension and expansion of the credit these numbers are expected to dramatically increase.

For more info on how the credit works, check out my previous post on the Economic Stimulus and the First-time Home Buyer Tax Credit.
