South Bay home prices surged 7.0% in November, compared with the same time last year, tying an all-time high due to the tight housing market. Few properties are currently for sale making it difficult for anxious buyers whose demand for housing is putting upward pressure on home values.

The report, released by the data firm Core Logic, reveals a housing market that shows no sign of slowing. The combination of strong job growth, favorable interest rates and the shortage of listings are driving prices ever higher. The area’s median home price hasn’t fallen on a year-over-year basis in more than six years.

There are potential headwinds on the horizon, however. The tax bill recently enacted by Congress makes key changes to how much homeowners can deduct that directly affect the high-priced South Bay housing market. Under the law, interest on new loans greater than $750,000 is not deductible. The new law also limits the deductibility of state income and property taxes to $10,000. These provisions could make it harder for marginal buyers to qualify. Some experts say the new provisions could crimp demand in some upscale neighborhoods. Others have said that given the strong current market, it is unlikely that any perceptible downturn will be seen.

Time will tell, for now, if you are thinking of buying or selling, give us a call. We love to talk about real estate.
