CAAR Homes Sales Report First Quarter 2022 Market Report Key Takeaways Economic Conditions • Virginia’s economy continued to improve in early 2022, despite rising inflation and the escalating conflict overseas. Economic conditions are solid in the Charlottesville region, with very low unemployment and strong job growth. • Even as the economy improves, consumer confidence is shaky. In March 2022, the measure of expectations of future economic conditions fell to its lowest level since 2013. • Mortgage rates are on the rise. In the second week of April, the average 30year rate hit 5%, the first time it has been at this level in 11 years.

REAL ESTATE NEWS

Housing Market Conditions • There were 888 homes sold in the CAAR region during the first quarter. The number of sales was 17% lower than a year ago, reflecting 177 fewer sales. This is the third quarter in a row of year-over- year sales declines in the region. • Home prices continued to rise quickly in the CAAR area. In the first quarter, the median sales price was $389,900, which was up 13% over a year ago, a gain of nearly $45,000. • Inventory continued to fall in the CAAR region but at a slower pace. There were 472 active listings across the CAAR footprint at the end of the first quarter, which is just 3% fewer listings than this time last year. Supply expanded in some local markets around the region.

Economic Overview Despite ongoing uncertainties, the economy in Virginia continues to improve. In February 2022, total employment in Virginia surpassed four million jobs, the first time that milestone has been reached since March 2020. About 111,900 jobs have been added over the past 12 months. The total number of jobs in the state is now just 2% below where it was prior to the pandemic. The job recovery in Virginia continues across most sectors, with the fastest growth in some of the sectors that were hardest hit by the pandemic. The Professional/Technical Services, Transportation/Warehousing, Administrative Services, and Federal Government sectors have all been back to pre-pandemic levels for several months. However, in February, for the first time, the number of jobs in both the Retail Trade and Construction sectors surpassed pre-pandemic levels. A key indicator of the improving economy is the unemployment rate. In February, the unemployment rate in Virginia was 2.9% (not seasonally adjusted), which is down from 3.4% in January and is at the lowest level since March 2020. In the Charlottesville region, the February unemployment rate was 2.5%, down from 3% in January. New Construction In 2021, there was a total of 1,327 permits issued for the construction of new housing units in the Charlottesville metro area. This is the highest number of housing permits issued in the region since 2006, at the height of the housing boom. New residential construction continued to be brisk in the first part of 2022. In January and February, there were 286 new construction permits, which is up significantly from prior years. In 2021, about two-thirds of all new construction permitted was single-family housing. In the first two months of 2022, more than 70% of new housing permits were for the construction of single-family homes. Consumer Confidence Consumers’ outlook for the economy dipped this spring in response to high inflation and ongoing conflict overseas. In March 2022, the measure of how confident consumers feel about the future economy fell to 77.7, down from 87.2 in February, and the lowest level since 2013. Between February and March 2022, consumers’ confidence in the present economic situation ticked up from 153.1 to 161. (A consumer confidence index above 100 indicates people are feeling more optimistic about economic conditions.) Mortgage Rates Over the past few weeks, mortgage rates have risen faster than they have in nearly 30 years. In the second week of

April, the average rate on a 30-year fixedrate mortgage hit 5% for the first time in 11 years. Rates are rising in response to actions taken by the Federal Reserve, including a boost in short-term interest rates and a pullback in the purchase of bonds and mortgage-backed securities. The Fed has telegraphed several more short-term rate increases during 2022, which indicates that mortgage rates will likely rise further during the year. Even as rates continue to climb, they are still at historically low levels.

Housing Market Overview The number of home sales in the CAAR housing market was lower than a year ago, which reflects a cooling from the frenzied market of 2021. However, homes prices in the region continued to rise briskly, and homes were selling more quickly, which means that buyers are still active in the market. A lack of inventory has been the primary constraint on the market, and there would have been more sales if there was more inventory. Market conditions could be changing, as inventory may have bottomed out in the Charlottesville region and higher mortgage rates could dampen demand. Sales There were 888 sales across the CAAR footprint in the first quarter of 2022. Home sales have been down year-overyear for three consecutive quarters, reflecting a slowdown from the frenzied 2021 market. In the first quarter, the number of sales was 17% lower than a year ago, a decline of 177 sales. Home sales were 6% higher than pre-pandemic levels, with the first quarter sales total 6% higher than sales during the first quarter of 2020. Statewide, the number of home sales in the first quarter was down 8% compared to a year ago and was 9% higher than first quarter 2020 sales totals. Sales Prices The number of home sales transactions has slowed in the CAAR market, but prices continued to rise broadly across the region. The median sales price in the region was $389,900 in the first quarter, which is up 13% compared to a year ago, a gain of nearly $45,000. Home prices have risen quickly over the past two years in the Charlottesville area. The median sales price is now $87,900 higher than it was during the first quarter of 2020. The median sales price rose in the first quarter in all local markets in the CAAR region. The strongest price growth was in Fluvanna County, where the median price increased by 24% year-over-year. Median home prices were up by 22% in Louisa County and 17% in Nelson County. Statewide, the first quarter median sales price was $375,000, up 12% compared to a year ago. Sold Volume The decline in home sales led to a drop in total sold dollar volume in the CAAR region. Regionwide, there was a total of approximately $431.4 million of sold volume during the first quarter. Sold volume was down 3% compared to a year ago, which is a decline of about $13.2 million.

Days on Market Even though the number of home sales has declined, transactions are moving very quickly in the CAAR market. Homes that sold in the first quarter in the CAAR region were on the market about a month on average, or 30 days, which is 15 days faster than a year ago. The pandemic accelerated the region’s housing market. In the first quarter of 2020, for example, it took an average of 78 days for homes to sell in the CAAR region. Statewide, homes sold in an average of 24 days in the first quarter, down from 31 days a year ago. Inventory Inventory is at historically low levels in the CAAR region. Supply continued to fall in the first quarter, but the yearover-year inventory declines have moderated, suggesting that inventory might be bottoming out in the region. Across the CAAR footprint, there were 472 active listings in the region at the end of the first quarter. Inventory is down by just 16 listings, or 3%, compared to the end of the first quarter of 2021. Compared to a year ago, the number of active listings actually increased significantly in Fluvanna County, Greene County, and Louisa County. Despite those gains, the number of homes on the market in the CAAR region is just about a third of what it was in the first quarter of 2020, before the onset of the pandemic. Statewide, there was a total of 13,610 active listings at the end of the first quarter, which is about 2,000 fewer active listings than a year ago, a 13% drop. There were just 1.1 months of supply at the end of the first quarter in the CAAR footprint. The metric is down from 1.2 months a year ago but rose from 1 month at the end of the fourth quarter of 2021. The months of supply metric is calculated by taking the average monthly sales over the preceding 12-month period and dividing it by the inventory of active listings.

Rising Rates & Higher Costs

THE REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.C-VILLE.COM

What’s a Buyer to Do?

R

ising mortgage rates, higher prices, and low inventory are taking their toll on wouldbe buyers in this real estate market. Some of these buyers are determinedly forging ahead, some are making drastic compromises, and others are dropping out of the market altogether. Let’s be clear. We have not seen these kinds of increases in rates, inflation and housing prices in decades. Combine that with extraordinarily low levels of inventories of homes for sale, and it’s no wonder frustrated buyers are calling it quits. And for some, that really is the best choice.

BY CARLA HUCKABEE

For most, it’s time to take a breath, sit down with their partners, reevaluate everything, and come up with a plan based on current market realities. It’s hard, though not impossible, to find a shred of optimism to hang on to these days. But armed with a well-conceived plan, a buyer can still succeed in this unstable market.

Core Problems At its core, higher home prices and low inventory are attributable (at least in part) to the surge in demand caused by a wave of millennials in their prime home-buying years. However, the low inventory also encourages an increase in demand for new construction, which, combined with labor and materials shortages, pushes prices to unprecedented highs.

Given the cost of replacement, current homeowners are reluctant to sell. Even if an owner wants to sell, it’s difficult to justify letting go of an affordable asset and entering an uncertain market. Additionally, Bill Hamrick, Branch Manager with C&F Mortgage, says, “A record number of homeowners refinanced last year. Those people are going to stay, especially if they took money out of the refinance to get a new kitchen. They’re sitting at two or 2.5 percent interest and are not interested in flirting with a mortgage rate at six percent.” Those factors leave us with a housing inventory in Central Virginia of just over one month, according to the CAAR (Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS®) Home Sales Report for the first quarter of 2022.

And if that isn’t bad enough, after sitting at or near rock-bottom for almost two years, mortgage rates suddenly took off, leaving would-be buyers wondering what hit them.

Rising Rates Just two months ago, super-low mortgage interest rates were a driving force in home-buying activity. Many buyers saw those rates and told themselves, “Now is the time to buy.” They may have been right. However, as the CAAR Report describes, “Over the past few weeks, mortgage rates have risen faster than they have in nearly 30 years. In the second week of April, the average rate on a 30-year fixedrate mortgage hit 5 percent for the first time in 11 years.” That was April. Since then, the Federal Reserve raised the short-term interest

rate by another half-point and many expect more increases during 2022 to limit inflation. “I’ve been doing this for 35 years and have never seen a market like this,” says Hamrick. “The crazy prices and spiraling interest rates make it difficult. We have gone from below three to almost six percent and the rates just went up again today. “This doubling in rates is having an incredible impact on buyers. The same house today costs a buyer $200 more per month than it did just a few weeks ago. “And it’s not just the base rate that is causing problems. If your credit score is below 700, you’ll likely pay even more for a mortgage, probably another onehalf percent. At the same time, loan-tovalue ratios are dropping to 75 percent. That’s an indication that entities buying mortgage-backed securities think today’s home prices may be inflated.”

Julia Morris-Roberts, Mortgage Loan Officer with Fulton Bank, agrees. “It’s heartbreaking to see pre-qualified buyers waiting for the right house to come available and now, all of a sudden, they no longer qualify in the range they were looking.”

Know Your Pain Points Financing a home adds one more layer of complication to an already difficult process. CAAR President-Elect S. Lisa Herndon advises buyers to get two experts on their team from the first moment they start thinking about buying a home—a REALTOR® and a lender they can trust. “And then use them. Sit down and strategize. Play out all the possible scenarios. Know everything upfront, especially what your pain points are. “What strategies will you be able to use to be competitive in this sellers’ market? Do you have the budget to go $20,000 over the asking price? And then if the

But in this environment, you really need to be in constant communication to keep up with these rapid rate increases.” Buyers are Beyond Frustrated After making four or five offers and losing out to cash buyers or better offers, buyers must now deal with higher rates and potentially more stringent financing conditions. And all the while, home prices keep rising. Jay Domenic, Mortgage Loan Officer with Towne Mortgage advises, “The most important step for buyers is to circle back to their lender. If they have been pre-approved or pre-qualified a month or so ago, the mortgage rates have probably shifted out from under them. Buyers need to know what they qualify for at today’s—and tomorrow’s—interest rates. “I always try and give my clients a bit of a cushion in case rates move up while they are looking. But in this environment, you really need to be in constant communication to keep up with these rapid rate increases.”

house doesn’t appraise at your offer, can you make up the difference in cash? How does the lender feel about foregoing an inspection or having the inspection for information only? These are all questions you need to know the answers to before you start making offers. “With mortgage rates so aggressively on the upswing, it’s critical to think about what interest rates will be in two weeks or two months. The worst thing is to be pre-qualified at a certain mortgage rate and then have a subsequent uptick in the interest rates nullify the deal.” Another reality that can make a difference is geography. If escalating mortgage rates price buyers out of their target market, they may be forced to look further afield. Buyers need to evaluate exactly where they are willing to buy and under what conditions. Broker Ray Caddell, with Ray

Annie Gould Gallery

Caddell & Co. Real Estate, says, “In the last two years, I have sold more houses over the mountain than I have in the previous 30-plus years. Buyers are being priced out of the Charlottesville area. “Under $400,000 is tough. Under $300,000 is next to impossible. I worked with a young single professional firefighter with no debt. At her salary and savings level, she qualified for a little over $200,000 purchase price. We could not find her a suitable house in the area she was working at these mortgage rates. A firefighter should be able to live in the county they are protecting. “Those who could easily buy a house before can still buy one. Those who struggled before, have an even harder climb now that interest rates have jumped up.”

Possible Solutions But all is not lost. Even the CAAR quarterly report suggests that price increases might begin to decelerate. Hamrick agrees. “Late in this quarter or mid-summer, I think you’ll start seeing a slowdown in prices. The escalation clauses that shoot home prices way over ask, may start becoming a thing of the past.” In the meantime, there are tools and strategies that can help buyers in this

“Buyers shouldn’t be scared off by adjustable rates. Decades ago, there were some unfavorable ARMs on the market, and borrowers did get burned. Those days are gone. ARMs are not a bad word anymore. We really are creating a product that will best serve the client.” Morris-Roberts advises buyers to be open-minded and explore all options. ARMs can make a home more affordable and give buyers the security of knowing their rate won’t change for whatever period they choose.

Silver Lining Higher mortgage rates may help to end our frenzied housing market. And in the long run that may help buyers, especially those who take a breath and analyze their situation with a balance between the long view and short-term strategizing. Hamrick explains, “I had a client with two preschoolers who was struggling with a decision of whether to buy in this volatile interest and high price market. I asked her how long she was planning to stay here. It turns out she is fully committed to having her kids graduate from high school here. I advised that she buy. Now. Costs are only going to go up over the next couple of years. That is very

market. One of them is to shift from long-term to short-term thinking. Morris-Roberts says, “Think shortterm. Everything is a cycle. We expect rates to go up and then come down again. Of course, the million-dollar question is when and by how much? “But no one wants to get into a 30-year fixed mortgage at five and a half or six percent. Especially when they probably won’t be in the house for that long. Statistically, 80 percent of loans are for fewer than eight years. Borrowers either refinance or sell. Knowing that, why would you lock into a rate close to six percent? Buyers need to think strategically and short term. “As a bank, Fulton keeps and services our mortgage portfolio. That allows us to offer more competitive adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs). We have a seven-year ARM in the low four percent. The mortgage is amortized over 30 years, but the rate is locked in for seven years. If you’re still in the house near the seven-year mark, you can discuss with the lender what the best options are. In the meantime, you’ve likely saved hundreds of dollars per month and didn’t jeopardize your pre-qualification.”

different from the couple who is just biding time until they could land a job in Oklahoma. They should rent.” Even though the odds seem stacked against buyers who require financing, it’s not impossible to get into the right house. If buyers are counting on mortgage rates coming back to hit three percent like they were a year ago, they are only kidding themselves. Morris-Roberts says, “That train has left the station. But there are ways to keep mortgage rates low by thinking and acting strategically. And by working with a lending partner that gives you more options.” “Buying a house in this market is so psychologically draining,” says Herndon. “Prices are high now and they keep going up. It seems as if mortgage rates are getting higher by the day. It’s tempting to drop out of the market altogether. And no doubt, for some people that is the right move. “But don’t give up before having an honest appraisal with your team. You can win in this market with the right strategies and tools.” Carla Huckabee writes about high-performing real estate.
