This week has produced more housing finance reports than you can shake a stick at. Here’s a roundup and summary of what’s happening of reports from Ellie Mae; ATTOM Data Solutions; Redfin; Radian Inc.; TransUnion; Black Knight; Zillow; and PayNearMe.
Zillow, Seattle, said 11 cities are expected to join the “Million Dollar City” list in 2020—where the typical home value is at least $1 million—but five cities are likely to fall out, with few new entrants expected in coming years.
Zillow, Seattle, said despite slowing home price growth, home buyers are still feeling the pinch because of low housing inventories and rising rents. In a separate report, Redfin, Seattle, said home price value continued to accelerate, reaching their highest levels since July 2018.
Even as Millennials age into their prime home-buying years, they’re still not keeping up with past generations, said Zillow Inc., Seattle. Furthermore, the analysis said, Gen Z could end up overwhelming Millennials in homeownership competition.
After “extraordinary” home value growth characterized by a strong housing market in 2017 and 2018, Zillow, Seattle, said 2020 should shake down more like 2019–with the market stabilizing near historic norms.
