Younger renters and homeownership

In the recent National Housing Survey, 76% younger renters think owning a single-family home or condo makes more sense compared to renting. One of the reasons cited in the report they think owning is a smarter move because you’re protected against rent increases and owning a home is a good investment in the long term.

Here are a few other items noted in the report:

* When forced to choose, 59% of younger renters think owning makes more sense while 41% think renting makes more sense for lifestyle reasons.
* Younger renters most frequently cite insufficient credit history and difficulty with affording a down payment as their biggest obstacles in obtaining a mortgage.

Feds: Low inventory hurting local housing market

Boston condos

Interrupting our gripping non-stop arrest-non-arrest coverage of the marathon bombings, we bring you this housing news from the latest Fed Beige Book:

Strong consecutive months of year-over-year growth in single-family homes sales halted in February, with some New England states experiencing marginal increases and most observing a decline. According to contacts, buyer demand remains strong, but dwindling inventory levels have hampered growth in sales. Meanwhile, median sale prices across the region rose from a year ago. Contacts attribute the price rise to the declining stock of distressed properties compared to a year ago as well as to the general decline in inventory reducing supply relative to demand. Particularly in urban areas throughout New England, decreasing inventory levels have placed upward pressure on prices. In the Greater Boston area, contacts report that multiple bids on properties have become more common as inventory continues to dwindle. Contacts express concern that low inventory levels in the next several months could discourage buyers and continue to be a significant factor limiting the growth of sales. On the other hand, inventory levels may rise with the beginning of the busy spring season. In addition, rising prices will eventually lure into the market sellers who have been waiting for the value of their homes to pick up before listing them.

If all we’re concerned about at this point is high demand and low inventory levels, after years of awful real-estate news, then we’ve come a long way recovery wise. And we’ll take it. For now.

Update:

Well not much has changes since the above post was written back in 2013. We’re at the start of the fall market, the biggest issue, once again is inventory. Finding a Beacon Hill condo under $500,000 – almost impossible.

The next real estate frontier: … Chelsea?

Boston and Chelsea real estate

Boston and Chelsea real estate

Yes, Chelsea.

Almost every five years or so, someone proclaims the imminent “renaissance” of Chelsea, or the renaissance of some other hapless city or neighborhood that, on a one-dimensional map, seems to theoretically have a lot of potential.

Remember all the old decades-long talk about how Central Square and Kenmore Square were on the cusp of a “renaissance” too? Central Square eventually got there, after a few decades of fits-and-starts improvements. Kenmore Square never quite got there, partly because of the disappointing T-stop renovation and the dizzying changes to the streetscape.

Revere, Everett and Lynn are other cities that always seem to be on the verge of a “renaissance,” but never get there.

But Chelsea? This time it might be different for Chelsea, an old industrial city that’s also had its share of “renaissance” predictions.

Why is it different this time? Because there seems to be an honest-to-goodness mix of development going on in Chelsea, as the Globe points out: A new FBI fortress complex, two new hotels, a handful of large apartment-building complexes – with possibly thousands of additional housing units on the way.

The biggest and most convincing argument that this revitalization is real and probably sustainable: The prices of housing in Boston, Cambridge, Somerville etc. are just too high and show no signs of easing up, while land and housing in Chelsea is comparatively cheap, though much of that land needs to be environmentally cleaned up after decades of industrial use.

Another big plus: Chelsea’s close proximity to Boston and its downtown attractions.
All of this won’t lead to a “renaissance” of Chelsea. It will probably retain a lot of its hardscrabble edge — which isn’t such a bad thing, btw — as only a few of its neighborhoods are transformed into an urban oasis for professionals.

But it is indeed a new real estate frontier that could end up producing thousands of desperately needed housing units in the Boston area.
