California Housing Market Report & Predictions 2021
California Housing Market
Prices of single family homes rose in August to a new all time high, even while sales slipped 3.3% compared to July. The average price of a California house rose 2.1% to $827,940 while the average condo price stayed level.
Economic conditions in California have improved as the pandemic numbers have eased. 60,000 unemployed people transitioned back to employed status. Yet, many more are coming off of the Federal stimulus supports which will have a temporary effect on the real estate and rental sectors.
CAR believes this is a cooling trend and will be with us for a while however, they still feel optimistic about the changes and that better news is ahead. Certainly a full recovery of the economy is still ahead in 2022. For this fall however, buyers keep asking if home prices will fall?

REAL ESTATE NEWS & VIEWS
Why the U.S. Housing Market Might Be Better for Buyers in 2022
Recent reports have offered a glimmer of hope for buyers in the U.S. These reports have shown an increase in the number of houses for sale, along with a general cooling trend within the housing market. If these trends continue going forward, the real estate market could be better for homebuyers in 2022.
Real Estate Market Better for Home Buyers in 2022?
More inventory to choose from, a slower pace, and moderating price growth. Those are just three of the reasons why the housing market might be better for homebuyers in 2022.
How Inventory Growth Could Shift the Housing Market in 2022
Supply shortages have been the big real estate news story of the past year. Housing market inventory has hovered at record-low levels, partly due to a COVID-related surge in home buying activity.
But recent reports show an increase in the number of new listings hitting the real estate market.
If inventory growth continues over the coming months, it could shift the housing market later in 2022. We probably won’t see a classic buyer’s market anytime soon. But sustained inventory growth could make the real estate scene a bit more buyer-friendly in 2022.
