Real estate CEO: Record-low housing inventory is ‘freaking us out’

The number of homes for sale in America has been falling steadily for the past year, but the situation is apparently getting much worse as spring demand heats up.

“The inventory is reaching historic lows. It’s never declined faster than it did last month. It’s freaking us out — it’s affecting our business; it’s limiting our sales,” said Glenn Kelman, CEO of Seattle-based Redfin, a real estate firm. “We’re going to be fine in terms of market share, but I think the overall industry for the first time is seeing sales volume really limited by the inventory crunch.”

Kelman started Redfin more as a technology company and touts his ability to track closely the more than 80 metropolitan markets it covers. He blames the lack of inventory on a new dynamic in housing.

“It’s a new landlord nation where everybody is renting out their basement. When somebody moves up they don’t sell their old place, they rent it out to somebody else, and it’s because they want to keep that 30-year mortgage for 30 years, and it’s because they can easily find somebody on Airbnb who will take the place,” Kelman said.

Homes in April sold the fastest since Redfin began tracking the market in 2010. The typical home went under contract in just 40 days, 10 days faster than April 2016. As a result, 1 in 4 homes sold above their list price, which is the highest percentage Redfin has recorded.

Home prices continue to move higher as well, but, “It’s not a bubble,” said Kelman emphatically, who cites tight credit as keeping the bubble at bay.

    Inside New York and New Jersey’s Industrial Boom, Fueled by the Death of Retail

    Industrial property has never been sexy as a building or an asset class. At most, such properties might be converted into lofts, a modern office or a party venue. (Extra points if they’re near a bridge with a particularly noisy elevated subway.)

    Traditionally, industrial properties were the purview of passive investors who didn’t seek huge returns.

    Until now. All of a sudden, developers are clamoring for warehouse space in the five boroughs and New Jersey. Prices and rents are skyrocketing, and there are not many large sites available anymore, even for buyers with extremely deep pockets.

    In New York City, industrial real estate is rapidly disappearing as the city rezones large swaths of the outer boroughs to pave the way for new residential buildings.

    “The M-zoned [industrially zoned] pockets in Brooklyn have shrunk over the years because of rezonings, and now there are more discussion of rezonings in Gowanus, Williamsburg, Bushwick,” said Dan Marks, a partner and commercial broker at TerraCRG. “It puts a lot of pressure on the remaining M-zoned areas.”

    Across the East River in New Jersey, the market for industrially zoned land is also heavily constricted and expensive. But unlike in New York City, developers are building millions of square feet of new industrial space along the New Jersey Turnpike. And e-commerce tenants and businesses that cater to them are taking huge blocks of industrial land on both sides of the river, often paying more than old-school warehouse or light manufacturing tenants.

    So what is V2?

    President Pence and VP Ryan?

    Probably quite a few people who would prefer that ticket. Not to mention it would offer a complete reset of the republican agenda in Washington. Not too often does a party get a “do-over” – which would absolutely be the case here. Blame it all on loose cannon Trump … now that that’s behind us, now we can get the real work done. Blah blah blah. I could very easily see both parties claiming victory in an impeachment – so don’t be surprised when you see a very large portion of the repubs backing impeachment.

    It’s tough being a rock star.

    I was over at my multi a few minutes ago. Upstairs tenants said the toilet wobbled but there was no water so I bought some caulk, a few toilet shims, a knife, a sponge and a hammer over. Ended up just needing the bolts tightened. Oy vey! Well I asked them how they were doing and they said one day they plan to buy a home and it’s great that I let them watch me do repairs because they have no clue (obviously). I told them, if they ever buy a home, I would by them a housewarming gift of the time/life books, non-digital version. Well he said, there’s no way they are buying a home anytime soon since since they can’t possibly save enough. No duh, you are living in Montclair, strolling distance to a train station in an apartment much better suited to 3 people. Don’t get me wrong. They are great tenants, always pay on-time, extremely neat and so on. But if I were them, I would take the extra $1,000 they are paying a month and move to Clifton or someplace else where schools don’t matter.

    In other findings, I see that Montclair’s bravest, don’t even flush the hydrants anymore. This has been outsourced. Let’s see. The janitors have outsourced cleaning to Latino cleaning ladies, the six figure fireman can’t flush the hydrants and everytime the town takes on a medium sized project, they hire super expensive consultants. It’s good to always have those tax dollars to f around with.

    6:00 Grim,
    Article has plenty of good points. Why does college cost so much more? More piggies at the trough asking for higher and higher salaries. Why have home prices risen so much? Those who own the dirt asking too much, too many parasites attached to the framing requiring unnecessary added building costs. Segregation not allowing smaller lot sizes/smaller homes/ old goats only allowing 55 and over construction – segregation against singles, divorced, low income families. Old goats say ditch your cellphone and save for a house Millennials. Numbers bear out that this does not make any sense. If Romney pushed his voucher thing through the heat would really be on.

  24. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    How many cars do they have? None -great. One – OK. Two? – to my calculations eliminating 1 car from a family nets about at least $1,000 PER MONTH net savings. If they have two cars they could probably move to Clifton and bank $2,000 per month by giving up 1 car. If they want to stay in Montclair, they probably shouldn’t have more than 1 car. One of my best friends has a Mom & Dad who sold their house in 1990 or so to retire to Montclair as renters. The Dad died, but the Mom still rents there (I think she’s on her 3rd place, about 85 years old now). I’m not sure if they even had a car after they retired, but I’m guessing only 1. The Dad was a Science Teacher and the Mom was a librarian. They used to spend every Summer in the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s visiting every state in the Country in their VW microbus camper. You know the type. Where else could they end up but Montclair?

    The funny thing is they have two sons, both about my age. Neither one ever married or had kids. One lives in Florida, one lives in Oregon. I guess if you have to spend every gd Summer cooped up in VW microbus with no A/C you might get turned off by the nuclear family way of living.

    Perry Mason (jj Edition):

    Lawyers in the murder trial of a Florida man who wants to show his pen!s to the jury went back and forth this week on whether he would need to be erect.

    The trial for Richard Patterson, 65, of Margate began on Tuesday, but the judge has not ruled whether his gen!tals will be presented in the courtroom.

    Patterson’s lawyers want to use his pen!s as evidence to argue that his girlfriend Francisca Marquinez, 60, choked to death while performing or6l s3x on him in 2015.

    The prosecution reportedly doesn’t object, but argued at the trial that his pen!s must be erect, according to news station WPLG.

    “Do we do it in the back? Do we do it in open court?” assistant state attorney Peter Sapak asked. “How is the defendant going to be erect when the jury views it? Because a flaccid pen!s, whether it be a picture or the jury actually seeing it, is completely irrelevant. It needs to be erect.”

    Defense attorney Ken Padowitz slammed the prosecution’s argument, saying the court should hear from a medical expert about the logistics. Padowitz wants to call former Broward County medical examiner Ronald Wright as a witness to testify that Marquinez’s death “is consistent with being accidentally s3xually asphyxiated during oral s3x.”

    “He’s telling the court, as if he’s a medical expert in his argument, that it matters whether the pen1s is erect or not,” Padowitz said. “But he’s merely speculating here since he’s never asked that question to Dr. Wright in definition, and he doesn’t, obviously, know, actually, what the expert opinion is what is needed or not needed in order for a human being to choke.”

    Patterson faces second-degree murder charges and if convicted, could be sentenced to life in prison.

    COMEY: In theory yes.

    HIRONO: Has it happened?

    COMEY: Not in my experience. Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose. I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it. But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience.

    Wait.. Didn’t the FBI clear Flynn on Jan 24?
    Posted on 16 May 2017
    Something stinks here with this New York Times Comey Memo “bombshell” and it’s not just to leftists. I seem to remember that Comey’s FBI cleared Michael Flynn of any wrongdoing back on January 24th. Rememeber this story from the New York Post (which attributed credit to the Washington Post) back on January 24th 2017?
    Wait.. Didn’t the FBI clear Flynn on Jan 24?

    So if Flynn was cleared by the FBI on January 24th, why in the hell would Donald Trump ask Comey to clear Flynn in February? Flynn is still understand investigation by the various Congressional committees, but not the FBI. There would have been nothing for Trump to ask Comey to clear. Comey had no control over the Senate or House committess investigating Flynn and the so called “Russia Collusion.” Why is the media not reporting on this?
    So what do we believe? That story from January 24th claiming Comey cleared Flynn in the Russia collusion case? Or that Comey kept some memo of Trump asking him to give Flynn a break at a dinner date sometime in February? As of now anyway, no one aside from Comey and his “friend” have possesion of this memo. Even the New York Times doesn’t have a copy. They were just dictated to by Comey’s “Friend.”

    The driver of the Corolla, 80-year-old Ann Riolo, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Riolo was backing out of a diagonal parking spot when she drove onto the sidewalk, in reverse, and then hit the women.

    Heck…Just to be safe, I went to open a HELOC in case the D’s medical bills outgrow our rainy day fund. Don’t worry about me, have plenty of other things I could liquidate. But at 4%, why? Well found one that was 100% free to open, had no carrying cost if not used, was under 4% and didn’t require payback during first 10 years. Closed at year 15. Unfortunately, I didn’t qualify since Gator’s not working, regardless of our 830 credit. And we do still have about 500K in mortgage loans outstanding, regardless of the 600K in equity on the homes. But if they are giving out loans like this, not surprised people are taking them.

    I ended up applying for the Barclays (swore I would never open an account with them) Ring Card. Got 10K limit card that is 0% interest on transfers and purchases for 18 months and no fees whatsoever. This is madness.

    Q. Is there a cap on the amount of Medicare services you can use? I’ve had several expensive surgeries, and I’m worried that my benefits may run out.

    A. In general, there’s no upper dollar limit on Medicare benefits. As long as you’re using medical services that Medicare covers—and provided that they’re medically necessary—you can continue to use as many as you need, regardless of how much they cost, in any given year or over the rest of your lifetime.

    1. Obama’s past FBI Director running the investigation.
    2. Democratish Joe Lieberman running the FBI.
    3. Congress no longer calling any witnesses to testify during the investigation.
    4. Administration can now deflect all questions.

Steam heat in a pre-war building). The heating unit seemed a little weak as there were times when I wanted to warm the family up to our old standards and couldn’t hit 75 degrees on some days in the Winter. The AC seems right sized for the house though. BTW, I didn’t keep the house at 75 degrees all Winter, just when the wife and kids were feeling chilly.

The person who sold that unit back then was one of the most reasonable sellers I ever met. She had just retired as a single elementary school teacher, no kids, never married. She wanted to trade down to a 1 BR in Brookline, which is more expensive than Boston. She told me, “I know I’m selling for a lower price than last year, but I’m also buying for a lower price.” How many realtors would love to have an educated seller like that?
