Factor that influence real estate

  1. 1. Element That Effect Real Estate The real estate market in the United States has bounce significantly from the housing hit of the late-2000s, with low interest rates and limited list creating an ideal environment for sellers in some parts of the country. Buyers, on the other hand, often face spiral real estate prices, auction wars and extend search periods as they enter an increasingly extend market. This is particularly true in parts of California, which is home to four of the nation’s five most expensive housing markets in San Jose, San Francisco, Orange County and San Diego. Real estate represents a notable portion of most people's prosperity, and this is especially true for many householder in the United States. According to the most recent Survey of Consumer Finances by the Federal Reserve, 65.2% of American families owns their own primary apartment The size and scale of the real estate market make it an attractive and profitable sector for many financier. This article will look at some of the main element that affect the real estate market and the variation of investments available Factors That Influence Real Estate Demographics Demographics are the data that describes the composition of a population, such as age, race, gender, income, migration patterns and population growth. These statistics are an often overlooked but significant factor that affects how real estate is priced and what types of properties are in demand. Major shifts in the demographics of a nation can have a large impact on real estate trends for several decades. For example, the baby boomers who were born between 1945 and 1964 are an example of a demographic trend with the potential to significantly influence the real estate market. The
  2. 2. transition of these baby boomers to retirement is one of the more interesting generational trends in the last century, and the retirement of these baby boomers, which began back in 2010, is bound to be noticed in the market for decades to come. (For more on the baby-boomer trend, see Boomers: Twisting The Retirement Mindset.) There are numerous ways this type of demographic shift can affect the real estate market, but for an investor, some key questions to ask might be: i) How would this affect the demand for second homes in popular vacation areas as more people start to retire? Or ii) How would this affect the demand for larger homes if incomes are smaller and the children have all moved out? These and other questions can help investors narrow down the type and location of potentially desirable real estate investments long before the trend has started.For Simple way invest in Real estate Interest Rates Interest rates also have a major impact on the real estate markets. Changes in interest rates can greatly effect a person's ability to purchase a residential property. That is because the lower interest rates go, the lower the cost to obtain a problem to buy a home will be, which creates a higher demand for real estate, which again pressure prices up. Conversely, as interest rates rise, the cost to obtain a agree increases, thus lowering demand and prices of real estate. However, when looking at the impact of interest rates on an equity speculation such as a real estate investment trust (REIT), rather than on residential real estate, the relationship can be thought of as similar to a bond's relationship with interest rates. When interest rates decline, the value of a bond goes up because its coupon rate becomes more sensible, and when interest rates increase, the value of bonds decrease. Similarly, when the interest rate decreases in the market, REITs' high yields become more attractive and their value goes up. When interest rates increase, the yield on an REIT becomes less attractive and it pushes their value down. (To learn more about these effects, see How Interest Rates Affect Property Values.) The Economy Another key factor that affects the value of real estate is the overall health of the economy. This is generally measured by economic index such as the GDP, employment data, manufacturing activity, the prices of goods, etc. Broadly speaking, when the economy is inactive so is real estate. However, the cyclicality of the economy can have varying effects on different types of real estate. For example, if an REIT has a larger percentage of its investments in hotels, they would typically be more affected by an economic decline than an REIT that had invested in office buildings. Hotels are a form of property that is very sensitive to economic activity due to the type of lease structure innate in the business. Renting a hotel room can be thought of as a form of short-term contract that can be easily avoided by hotel customers should the economy be doing poorly. On the other hand, office ocupent generally have longer-term leases that can't be changed in the middle of an economic downturn. Thus, although you should be aware of the part of the cycle the economy is in, you should also be aware of the real estate property's sensitivity to the economic cycle.
  3. 3. Government Policies/Subsidies Prescription is also another factor that can have a sizable impact on property demand and prices. Tax credits, subtraction and investment are some of the ways the government can temporarily boost demand for real estate for as long as they are in place. Being aware of current government motive can help you determine changes in supply and demand and identify potentially false trends. For example, in 2009, the U.S. government introduced a first-time homebuyer's tax credit to homeowners in an attempt to jump-start home sales in a slack economy (only those who purchased homes between 2008-2010 is eligible). According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), this tax incentive alone led to 900,000 homebuyers to buy homes. This was quite a sizable increase, although temporary, and without knowing the increase was a result of the tax incentive, you may have ended up concluding that the demand for housing was going up based on other factors. Other Factors…. Of course, there are a slew of other factors that deserve extensive coverage in their own right but the following summarizes some of the major ones:  the mortgage interest tax credit has an enormous impact on home values – it’s free money for homeowners and drives up property prices by as much as 25% by altering the perceived affordability of home prices;  local builder activity, zoning restrictions, and local regulations dictate new home supply and prices react to too much or too little supply;  proximity to parks and playgrounds, noise pollution, light pollution, crime, zoning laws, air quality, internet connection quality, traffic volume, road quality…. most prospective buyers have customized lists of features and services that are personally important to them.
