MARTIN HOMES TEAM CHANGING HOUSES INTO HOMES MartinHomesTeam.com


LAMORINDA 2019 Q2 MARKET Below is a summary of Multiple Listing Service (“MLS”) data for Lamorinda residential UPDATE

detached home sales over the last twelve months from July 2018 to June 2019 (the prior-year comparison is from July 2017 to June 2018). In summary: • Our real estate market remains strong - The first half 2019 market delivered strong results for most of Lamorinda. Lamorinda average sales price is now $1.72M, up 6%, average sales price per square foot is $655, up 3%, and average days on market increased 8% to 26 days. • Lafayette continues to outpace both Moraga and Orinda - Lafayette’s average sales price is now $1.86M and average sales price per square foot is $706, up 4%. Average sales price per square foot is $605, up 6% for Moraga and $623, down 1% for Orinda. • Orinda’s #’s are be bit misleading – While it is true that Orinda’s average sales price per square foot turned negative (down 1%), it is primarily the result of a higher proportion of older vintage homes that require extensive remodeling that were recently sold and not an indication that the Orinda market is beginning to struggle. This trend is also evident in Orinda’s average days on market that increased by 15% to 33 days (as it generally takes longer to sell homes that require extensive remodeling) • Declining Interest Rates & Bay Area tech IPOs could boost the real estate market – Recent declines in mortgage rates and IPOs (recent and potential filings) from the likes of Lyft, Uber, Pinterest, Stripe and Airbnb that are within commute distance of Lamorinda could boost our real estate market in the second half of the year if stock valuations remain strong The following pages provide further details and breaks down the numbers by home size. Note, Lafayette figures included herein only include transactions within the Lafayette School District

HISTORICAL BAY AREA & LAMORINDA MARKET It is helpful to provide historical context to our real estate market to understand past PERFORMANCE

cycles and how Lamorinda faired compared to the rest of the Bay Area. Each cycle always has different market influences and therefore makes pinpointing the exact timing of when cycles begin and end very difficult. Even during bubble or irrational exuberance periods markets can run well beyond what market experts believe is rational. An example is the 2008-9 Financial Crisis caused by early 2000’s lax underwriting mortgage standards that allowed housing prices to skyrocket from zero-down and negative amortization loans. Most economists in 2003-4 believed homes were overvalued but values continued to rise another three to four years until 2007-8. Over the last thirty plus years Bay Area real estate markets were not only influenced by the health of our macro economy but also heavily influenced by Bay Area high-tech sector. Innovation creates new markets that translate into wealth creation that propels the growth of our real estate markets. The Silicon Valley influence today extends well beyond the Peninsula. In recent years the run up in Lamorinda home prices has been fueled by “new-tech” companies headquartered in San Francisco such as Uber, Airbnb, Lyft, Pinterest, Stripe, Salesforce, Twitter, Dropbox and Square where previously the lengthy commute to the Silicon Valley prohibited Lamorinda from being a viable option to most tech workers. The following page provides a historical perspective of past cycles and how Lamorinda price appreciation compares to the rest of the Bay Area.
