My prediction is Dec 2019 YoY will be up 5%, with single family outperforming condo.

Bullish news for existing suburban housing: a judge just ruled big developers need to buy their required carbon offsets within the county. Halted development on major projects until they submit plans he approves. Best case: higher costs and more delays.

My prediction last year was 6%.


Two years ago I said 5-7%


Three years ago I said 11%


Four years ago I said 15% over 2 years.

Average mortgage rates in 2019 so far are below the 2018 full year average:


Could 2019 also be a year where the treasury/mortgage spread goes down?

Hey, I hit my price prediction directly on the nose last year.

What's your prediction for 2020?

I’ll go with 8%, no large differences between single family and condo.

Unfortunately the many sources of rent data disagree on this important factor.

ApartmentGuide.com says SD 2 bed rentals are up 16%.

Rent Jungle says down 4%.

CoreLogic says up 3%.

Average the three and you get up 5%.

The prices at new coastal complexes are staggering. Jefferson “PB” is actually next to the 5 ramp on the wrong side of Mission Bay Drive and a 52 minute walk to the actual beach. You can’t really walk to anything other than maybe the In N Out.

Yet the cheapest 580sf studio is $2300 and the cheapest 1000sf 2 bedroom is $3600, with the 1400sf floorplans going for $4500.

Wow people must really hate to commute LOL.

You could own a good size house for the rent money on the 2 bed up the road an hour or so.

More power to them.

Speaking of commuting, has anyone else noticed traffic is heavier much earlier since Jan 1? Seems like everyone's new years resolution was to get to work earlier.

Now even 6 AM doesn't cut it.

By chance I had to go in an hour later one day last week and traffic was lighter than at 6 AM! I think all those folks shifted earlier...

Let's see how long that resolution lasts. Will probably be like the gym...
