Yorba Linda, Calif., – Real estate prices in select California markets are screaming past all-time highs not seen since before the Great Recession. Add to that shifts in generational buying habits and a shortage in housing supply and you’ve got the makings of a different kind of California housing crisis.
“Life-time-low interest rates are allowing California to surpass peak prices we saw a decade ago keeping monthly payments affordable,” says Bruce Norris, President of The Norris Group and host of I Survived Real Estate. “However, a recession next year might throw a wrench into some California markets and the overall economy.”
Norris predicted a 2018/19 recession in his February market analysis, “2% Interest Rates, $40 Trillion in Debt, and Other Surprise Endings.” Norris fears the Feds may be forced to seriously look at negative interest rate territory to spur the economy and fight deflation while simultaneously reviewing real estate tax benefits like 1031 exchanges, proposition 13, and mortgage interest tax deductions to plug budget deficits.
Norris has assembled a panel of real estate experts to address the current state of real estate and the overall economy during his 10th annual “I Survived Real Estate” charity gala, which is scheduled from 4 to 10:30 p.m. Friday, Sep. 22, at the Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda. While the event is sold out, HousingWire will live stream the event on Facebook starting at 7pm PST/10pm EST.
Other topics of discussion will include digital disruption in real estate, California buyer demographics and buying habits, and forecasts for the real estate market in 2018 and beyond.
Expert panelists scheduled for this year’s “I Survived Real Estate” charity gala include:
- Sara Bonert, VP of Broker Services at Zillow
- John Burns, John Burns Real Estate Consulting
- Doug Duncan, Chief Economist of Fannie Mae
- Sean O’Toole, CEO of PropertyRadar.com
- David Kittle, President of The Mortgage Collaborative
- Bruce Norris, President of The Norris Group
