2024 Real Estate Rents Down & Vacancy Rates Up

2024 Real Estate real estate

It’s possible that the slowing real estate markets in Phoenix, Arizona and Austin, Texas could have some indirect impacts on the California market, but it’s unlikely to be a direct and significant hit. Here’s why:

Similarities and Differences:

  • Similarities: All three states have experienced booming housing markets in recent years, driven by factors like low mortgage rates, remote work trends, and in-migration from other parts of the country. They also share some similar challenges, such as rising interest rates and affordability concerns.
  • Differences: California’s housing market is much larger and more diverse than those of Phoenix and Austin. It also has a much higher median home price, making it less directly comparable. Additionally, California has its own unique set of factors influencing its housing market, such as stricter regulations and a larger tech industry.

Potential Indirect Impacts:

  • Reduced buyer competition: If buyers are priced out of Phoenix and Austin, some of them may turn their attention to California, particularly in more affordable areas like the Inland Empire or Central Valley. However, this is likely to be a relatively small effect, as California’s own affordability challenges will still deter many buyers.
  • Changes in migration patterns: If fewer people are moving to Phoenix and Austin, there may be fewer people leaving California for those markets. This could potentially help to ease some of the supply and demand pressures in California.
  • Psychological impact: A slowdown in other hot markets could lead to a loss of confidence among some California buyers and sellers. This could dampen demand and lead to slower price growth or even price declines in some areas.

Overall, it’s important to remember that the California housing market is complex and has its own unique dynamics. While the slowdowns in Phoenix and Austin may have some indirect impacts, they are unlikely to be the main driver of any changes in the California market.

Here are some additional factors to consider:

  • The pace of interest rate hikes: If interest rates continue to rise, it will further dampen demand in all three markets, including California.
  • The strength of the job market: A strong job market in California could continue to attract buyers, even if prices are high.
  • The availability of new housing: If California can increase the supply of new housing, it could help to ease affordability pressures.

Well, with all that said, one has to consider that some very formally hot real estate markets which include Phoenix Arizona, Austin Texas, Las Vegas Nevada, and Florida, have now softened quite a bit. In general, depending on home mortgage rates, and the state of the national economy, the possibility is increased that this softening in both real estate sales and rentals could could spread not only to California but to the entire nation.

It’s important to stay informed about the latest trends in the California housing market and to consult with a qualified real estate professional before making any decisions about renting, buying or selling a home.
