California Housing Market Report

Both Realtors, investors, home buyers and renters across California continue to wait in limbo for the 2024 California housing market to unfold. Is this spring the “inflection point” the media have touted for markets?

Is this the year, frustrated buyers will finally have the opportunity to buy, or will rising home prices leave them all behind? While mortgage rates and payments declined in December, home and condo prices climbed slightly. And as the charts below reveal, active listings are weakening. Despite growing optimism in consumers, the properties simply aren’t there nor affordable.  WEBSITE


Realtors Expect More Movement in the Housing Market in 2024

Homes for Sale

The California Association of Realtors predicts that 2024 will be a better year for the California housing market for both buyers and sellers.

According to Manage Casa, a property management software company, 2024 is expected to bring falling mortgage rates, rising prices, economic expansion, and demand for homes in California.

2024-2028 Housing Market Predictions:
A Gradual Thaw With Added Challenges

As mortgage rates slowly fall, more buyers and sellers will enter the market, but housing prices should stabilize.

Over the next five years, although some trends accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to influence real estate and land use, other factors will also gain in importance. Among those are an aging population, the rising costs of climate change, a more unstable world and the expansion of artificial intelligence into new corners of the economy. As a consequence, even if the housing market gradually unfreezes as mortgage rates slowly decline from 2023’s highs, the hottest housing markets in 2028 may look a bit different from early 2024.

This is based on data sourced from several authoritative sources, including the U.S. News Housing Market Index, an interactive platform providing a data-driven overview of the housing market nationwide.
Key Findings:

  • After falling to a 28-year low in 2023, existing home sales will gradually rebound as mortgage rates decline.
  • With home prices holding onto their gains due to lack of supply, true price discovery will occur as lending rates fall and more homes are listed for sale.
  • Sales of newly built homes will hold their elevated market share due to builders’ ability to buy down mortgage rates plus pent-up housing demand.
  • Rents will stabilize due to added supply and more closely track inflation rates… WEBSITE
