2018 Real Estate Predictions from Kevin Budde at BofA

2018 Real Estate Predictions from Kevin Budde at BofA

2018 Real Estate Predictions from Kevin Budde at BofA California Specific – 2018 real estate In 2018 the California housing market is going to be much better than some may have thought in 2017. This month begins my 43rd year in the mortgage industry and while I may not be an economist I have experienced many ups and downs over the years. Since 1975 I have been through 3 major housing downturns (1980-1981, 1990-1994, 2007-2011) and I want to point out the most significant factors creating another good year for the California housing market.   Housing Markets Turn Down In Bad Economies, Not Good Ones We are going to have a strong economic year in California in 2018. California is having robust job gains and the unemployment rate is at the lowest level in 4 decades, 1979 being the last time it was this low – 4.6%. Since 2012 the California economy has grown faster than that of the US as a whole. Job gains are happening across most industries. Technology, Educational and Health Services, Leisure, Hospitality, Business Services, Manufacturing and Construction. All industries are showing gains in employment. With a tight labor market employees feel their jobs are secure and the possibility of pay increases. They also consume more goods, services and homes which in turn creates more jobs.   The New Tax Bill – Don’t Fear It The corporate tax cut to 21% is now in place along with lower individual tax rates and higher child care credits. Business owners and corporate executives make up a large portion of the high-end California home buyers. They will see...

Testimonial from clients of Ron Buck

Testimonial from clients of Ron Buck Ron was wonderful to work with he’s very knowledgeable and knows his industry very well. The bonus working with Mr. Buck is his team of professionals that help to get the job done. We were selling and buying at the same time which was very stressful. Mr. Buck’s professionalism and calmness was comforting since we had a quick close on both ends. If you’re looking for a great realtor® he’s the guy!!! Pacific Hills Chiropractic, testimonial Our home buying and selling experiences could not have been better, and we owe it all to Ron. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Orange County area. We met Ron at an open house in 2011 and used him as our agent on a 2012 home purchase. When we decided to sell our home in 2017, we knew without question that we would use Ron as the listing agent since he is an “area expert” in Laguna Niguel. He found us a great buyer in just a couple of weeks, and the transaction was very smooth. He walked us through each and every document, explaining everything as only an agent with 20 years of experience can do. Ron also found us our dream home, one that had slipped by our individual searches, and represented us in the purchase – and this transaction too was extremely smooth. He takes a no-nonsense approach to the entire process, and his deep knowledge of real estate matters is extremely comforting, especially if you haven’t gone through the process before.
