Job Growth

Leadenhall Building / May 2014 II


Higher mortgage rates will be “a headwind” for home buyers.

“Job growth continues to be strong in California and that means people feel more comfortable buying a home and mortgage credit has been very, very tight for the average person.

Job growth hasn’t been evenly distributed throughout the state, however. That means employment’s cushioning effect against the Fed taper will be felt differently in different housing markets.

Job growth has been especially strong in the technology sector, which benefits Northern California and certain pockets of Southern California.

As a result, the taper might be felt more intensely in those areas because they don’t have much job growth to offset its effects.

Housing Trends

CBS News MoneyWatch says, “If the real estate recovery is a baseball game, we’re in the fourth or fifth inning. So what will the rest of the game look like? Experts from the Urban Land Institute unveiled their view of how the rest of the recovery will play out in their Emerging Trends in Real Estate report, released this week at the land use and planning nonprofit’s annual conference in Chicago. The group highlighted a number of housing trends we can expect to see playing out over the next few years, based on surveys and interviews with real estate developers, investors, lenders, services and builders.
