There are several factors affecting the local housing market, including migration from California to other states with a lower cost of living, including Idaho, Arizona and Oregon. Another big factor is 50% of the workforce now works permanently from home (MIT Research study)and is no longer constrained by job location defining where they live. Interest rates have hit a new low 9X in 2020 (Tim Lucas, The Mortgage Report), averaging 2.86%, giving buyers more buying power than ever before and creating pent up demand, exacerbated by an historic inventory shortage, now close to 19% drop year-over-year (NARS Existing Home Report). One factor in the inventory shortage is the average time sellers remain in their homes has increased from 6 years in 2008 to 13 years today and that shortage is keenly felt by first time home buyers looking to buy.
