Market Activity for March 9-15, 2009

Last week in Lake Oswego there were 16 new listings, 8 houses that went pending, and 2 closed sales.  A trend I have been watching appears to be continuing.  When I look at Days on the Market, it seems like houses are either selling very quickly or very slowly.  3 of the 7 pending sales went into escrow in a week or less of market time. 3 more sold within about 2 months.  The last two had extended market time of 236 and 426 days.  Of the closed sales, one sold in 4 days and one sold in 243 days.  I think this is reflective of changing attitudes of sellers.  People who listed their homes in late 2007 and early 2008 are being stubborn about accepting the decline in values that has occured and are either sitting on high prices or dropping prices in such away that they are behind the market trends.  Whereas sellers listing today, who are listening to their Realtor and pricing their homes at values that will meet market conditions, are realizing quick sales at or near their asking prices.   Buyers are smart.  They are watching the market and recognizing value when they see it.  Correct pricing is King.

3.875% Fixed Rate Mortgages

banner-bankThere is currently in Lake Oswego a very large volume of new construction, “spec” homes that are for sale.  A spec house is a house built by a builder who does not yet have a buyer at the time it is built.  The idea is that they will be able to sell the house while it is being built or as soon after it is constructed as possible.  In a good real estate market it is pretty low risk and allows builders to make a good living.  But when the market is slow, like it is right now, it is extremely high risk and forces builders into bankruptcy and the unsold homes into foreclosure.    There is a local lender, Banner Bank, that is trying to do something about this problem.

What they are doing is offering 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages, at 3.875% (APR is 3.973%) to buyers who purchase one of the spec houses on which they are holding the construction loan.  They have over 250 houses that this applies to in Oregon and Southwest Washington, 46 of which are here in Lake Oswego.

These loans are made possible because Banner Bank has borrowed money from the US Government that is available as a result of the TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) money.  While I hate the fact that our country is in the mess that it is currently in, I am pleased to see that the government stimulus is finally trickling down to a tangible level.

The properties upon which these loans can be made here in Lake Oswego inlcude some very nice condominiums in First Addition, a great new neighborhood in Palisades, and quite a few luxury homes.  It really is an opportunity that will benefit people who are ready and able to buy right now.   While standard interest rates are currently hovering at right around 5%, getting an interest rate at 3.875% would have a direct impact on how much house you can afford to buy.  Here’s an example:  buying a $600,000 house, putting 20% down, and getting a standard loan at 5%, would give you a house payment of $2576 (principle and interest).  Using the same scenario, but using the 3.875% interest rate, that same home would now have a payment of $2,257.  The savings in over $300 per month.

This program is available in amounts up to $1,000,000 with no increase in rate for a jumbo mortgage.  A jumbo mortgage in standard lending is a loan amount that is greater than $417,000 and can have interest rates that are substantially higher than rates for homes that are under $417,000.  So the savings becomes even greater if the loan is in the jumbo category.

Buyers do need to qualify for these mortgages with verifiable income and sound credit.  If a buyer has less than 20% to put down, there are additional options for them that involve a slightly higher interest rate of 4.875%.

It is also important to know that this program is currently being offered with a deadline of March 22nd.  The program exists because Banner Bank wants to get these houses sold and they want them sold now.

If you would like additional information about this program, please visit the Banner Bank website by clicking here.  If you would like addtional information about the homes that are for sale and that are offering this financing, please contact either Linda or myself, and we would be happy to send you a list of properties.

I am going to mention the property at the top of the list, on Tualata Ct.  You’ll notice that the pricing is $264,900-$279,876.  This is what is called “value-range pricing”.  The representation is that the sellers will consider offers within that range.  This is a method of marketing that is occassionally used.  I believe it is based upon the theory that the range of pricing will bring in more offers and more quickly.  I don’t know that I buy into that school of thought, but it is why it is done.

Foreclosures vs. Shortsales

   

With the state of the current economy, there is a lot of attention being paid to the volume of foreclosures as well as shortsales.  These are two different situations that are often confused.  I thought it would be helpful to clarify what they are.

 

A foreclosure is a bank-owned property (also referred to as an REO property).  The process of foreclosing on a delinquent home owner has been completed and the bank has the full title to the property and the right to sell that property.  A quick look at foreclosures.com shows the very sobering statistic that in Lake Oswego right now there are 90 bank-owned properties, there are 17 properties in pre-foreclosure (behind in their house payments) and 587 properties scheduled for auction.  When a home owner falls behind in his or her house payments, there is a multi-month process where the homeowner is notified of the delinquency.  The final step of the forclosure is public auction where the mortgage holder takes the property back for the amount of money that is owed on it.  Bear in mind that the process takes about nine months.  Many of the people currently delinquent or scheduled for auction will find a way to either bring their payments up to date, renegoiate the terms of their loan, or sell the property.  So not all of the homes currently delinquent will become bank owned.  I’d also like to put these numbers in perspective.  Lake Oswego has a population of about 35,000 people.  With an average of 2.3 people per household, that is about 15,000 households.  And with 694 households either in pre-foreclosure or already bank owned, that is about 5% of the households.  Yep, that is sobering.

 

A shortsale is a house that has a market value of less than what is owed on it and the home owner is attempting to negotiate with their mortgage holder to take a discounted amount so that the property can be sold at current market value.  In this instance, the sale of the home will require a third-party approval (the bank), and may or may not happen.  The process to get this third party approval can take months (I worked with one that took 6 months), so if you are wanting a home that is a shortsale, be prepared to be patient and realize that the approval may or may not occur.

 

I am often asked how a buyer can find foreclosure and shortsale properties.  The reality is that 99% of them are listed with Realtors and made available on the RMLS.  People who are in distress and trying to sell their home as a shortsale hire Realtors.  And banks with bank-owned properties hire Realtors to sell their inventory of foreclosures.  You don’t need to buy a secret publication or pay for a special list.  These properties are available to the public on the RMLS and any Realtor can gather information on them to help assist you with finding that great deal.

 

Having said that, I have two areas of caution.  First, a foreclosure is a much better prospect for purchase if you have a time-line you are trying to accomplish.  A foreclosed property that is listed for sale can be purchased within a normal transaction period of 30 to 60 days.  Whereas a shortsale can take months and then may not occur at all.  Second, when you buy a foreclosure it really is buyer beware.  Banks make no representations about the condition of the property and often have their own sale agreements with extensive waivers to protect them from any future liablity.  In both circumstances you should be able to make your offer subject to a home inspection.

 

OK, I have a third thought.  Be aware that people who loose their homes are people in financial distress.  They go through an extended period where they have no resources to make their house payment much less fix the leaky roof or remodel the ancient kitchen.  So be prepared to see houses that are dirty and in need of repair.  In addiiton, it is not uncommon for these houses to be stripped of appliances and fixtures.  Not all foresclosures and shortsales are project properties, but many are.

 

So you are looking for the great deal?  Sure, check out the foreclosures and the short sales, but don’t close your mind to the good old homeowner who needs to move and is motivated.  These people will also often sell at great prices, close in a reasonable time frame, and maybe even vaccume the carpet and polish the granite on their way out.  To make the most of the market, look at the entire market.

Market Activity for February 9-15, 2009

Last week’s activity was slow, to put it mildly. There were 9 genuine new listings: meaning that they were not previously listed either by another Realtor or at a higher price. There were 4 houses that went pending, and zero closed sales. Probably the most interesting thing I observed is that of the pending sales, 3 out of the 4 sold in 35 days or less. I checked the market history on all of them and these sales really did happen that quickly. So there is a place where market demand meets current economic conditions and properties sell. I also think that buyers who are in the market are watching the inventory and jumping on the good deals. On the flip side is the 4th pending sale. It took 574 days to receive an accepted offer. It was originally listed for $1,199,000 and finally priced dropped, after such a long market time, to $689,000 in order to get it gone.
