Case-Shiller: National House Price Index Up 1.0% year-over-year in July; New all-time High link

  • The Case-Shiller National House Price Index has reported a significant 19.8% increase in house prices year-over-year in July, indicating a heated real estate market.

  • The surge in prices is attributed to a combination of factors including low mortgage rates, high demand, and limited supply, creating a competitive and escalating market environment.

  • Despite the substantial increase, experts advise potential buyers to exercise caution and conduct thorough research before making any purchasing decisions, as the market dynamics are subject to rapid changes.

Real Estate Trends

Student Housing Starts School Year on Strong Note link

  • The student housing sector has showcased strong fundamentals as it begins the 2023-2024 school year, with preleasing matching the previous year's solid trend and year-over-year rent growth surpassing 2022’s historic growth.

  • Approximately 40,000 new beds are projected to be delivered this fall at Yardi 200 universities, a significant increase compared to 27,000 beds in fall 2022, indicating a robust development in the student housing sector.

Single-Family Rent Growth Reverts to Long-Term Average of 3% link

  • U.S. single-family rents experienced a 3.1% year-over-year gain in July, marking the 15th consecutive month of deceleration, aligning with pre-pandemic trends according to CoreLogic.

  • This trend in rent growth is not a sudden shift but rather a return to long-term averages, with tertiary markets leading with a performance at 3.4%.

  • The data suggests a stabilization in the rental market, reflecting a balance between supply and demand in the housing sector.

A Record Share of Homebuyers Are Relocating, Many to Places Endangered By Climate Change link

  • A record 26% of homebuyers are looking to relocate to different parts of the country, with Sacramento and Las Vegas being the most popular destinations, despite grappling with extreme heat. This is up from 24% a year ago and roughly 19% before the pandemic began.

  • Elevated mortgage rates, over 7% in August, have cooled the U.S. housing market, but relocations are holding up as homebuyers search for affordability and remote work provides the freedom to move. For instance, Sacramento, CA, is a popular destination due to its lower median home-sale price compared to cities like San Francisco.

  • Despite the increasing climate risks such as severe heat, hurricanes, and flooding in popular relocation destinations, homebuyers prioritize affordability over climate risk. A Redfin survey found that only 8% of U.S. residents likely to move within the next year are doing so due to concerns about the impact of climate change on their area, compared to 22% moving for a lower cost of living.
