Older Workers May Be Retiring Early Because of the Coronavirus

One of the bright spots of the 2020 real estate market is the growth in equity homeowners are experiencing across the country. According to the recently released Homeowner Equity Insights Report from CoreLogic, in nearly every state there was a year-over-year first-quarter equity increase, averaging out to a 6.5% overall gain. That’s a huge win for homeowners, especially for those looking to sell their houses and make a move this summer. Having equity to re-invest in your next home is a major force that can make moving a reality, especially while buyers are expressing such a high demand for homes to purchase. Equity paired with early retirement is putting many older workers in a unique situation. Call the Stovall Team today if you feel it may be time to make your move. 714.343.9294

Is a Recession Here? Yes. Does that Mean a Housing Crash? No.

Four major differences in today’s real estate market are:

Families have large sums of equity in their homes
We have a shortage of housing inventory, not an overabundance
Irresponsible lending no longer exists
Home price appreciation is not out of control
We must also realize that a recession does not mean a housing crash will follow.  In three of the four previous recessions prior to 2008, home values increased. In the other one, home prices depreciated by only 1.9%. Call the Stovall Team today at 714.343.9294
