After years of discouraging news on the housing front, the housing recovery is now well under way. With it, however, have come a new set of challenges and concerns. Chief among them is the fear that the market, at least in some parts of the country, is entering a new bubble phase.
Bubbles have always been part of the real estate landscape, but have traditionally been highly localized and were simply accepted as minor, if inevitable, fluctuations. Since the recent real estate and financial collapse, however, the word has taken on a new gravitas. Fast rising housing prices, primarily in the West, have understandably provoked a certain amount of anxiety.
Housing prices in parts of California have jumped over 30% in the past year. Nevertheless there is a major difference in the dynamics behind the increases. Unlike previously, where loose credit created a highly unstable underpinning, and prices were supported almost entirely by speculative greed, today’s market represents more of a bounce back from record lows, based upon pent-up demand and low inventories. Credit is much tighter now, creating a firmer economic foundation and reducing chances of a sudden collapse.
Loans4Less.com, a California based online mortgage broker and real estate information platform, is perfectly aligned with the more conservative approach to credit, in addition to the continuing growth in the nationwide real estate market and the influx of new buyers it represents. The company focuses on “A” paper conforming loans, plus has gone to great lengths to create a comprehensive online user resource, attracting both buyers and sellers seeking up-to-date real estate and mortgage information. The goal is to become a national real estate platform, attractive to partnerships, and the company’s revenue growth continues to support its strategy.
