Riding Out the ‘90s

TIMES STAFF WRITERS

Each January in this space it’s our custom to look back at how the Southland housing market fared in the last year.

But today you get four perspectives instead of just one. We’ll review 1999--the hottest year in a decade--and recap the roller-coaster ‘90s.

Then we’ve asked a number of realty experts to offer their forecasts for the market as we enter the 2000s.

Finally, to see how your own home value fared in the 1990s, check out the chart accompanying this story.

Using the median price per square foot, the chart shows when each Southland ZIP Code peaked last, when it bottomed and where it is now.

First, a look at 1999:

A total of 299,586 homes and condos sold last year in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura and San Diego counties, up 5.3% from 284,637 in 1998.

That number was the highest sales count since 1989, when 315,721 homes were sold, according to Acxiom/DataQuick Information Systems of La Jolla.

The Inland Empire saw the largest increase in home sales, with 37,003 homes sold in Riverside County, up 9.1% from 1998, and 33,298 transactions taking place in San Bernardino County, up 9.3% from 1998.

Ventura also posted strong gains in home sales last year, with 15,666 sold, up 7% from a year earlier. San Diego saw similar gains, with 52,457 homes sold last year, up 7.4% from 1998.

About 111,000 homes sold in Los Angeles County in 1999, up 4% from 1998. Orange County had the weakest sales gain, with 50,154 homes sold in 1999, up just 0.3% from 1998.

The median price paid for a Southland home in 1999 was $191,000, up 3.8% from $184,000 in 1998. But the 3.8% gain understates the actual increase in home values, according to John Karevoll, an analyst with Acxiom/DataQuick.

“A lot of the buying activity in 1999 was in the Inland Empire and other lower-cost, entry-level areas,” he said, “which has pulled down the median price.

“Adjusting for this shift in ‘market mix,’ home values in Southern California are going up by about 9% a year.”

Prices rose the most in Ventura, Orange and Riverside counties, while Los Angeles County posted moderate gains, Karevoll said.

Median home prices jumped 8.7% in Ventura County, to $238,000 in 1999 from $219,000 in 1998. Orange and Riverside counties posted similar increases, with a 5.7% jump last year to $240,000 in Orange County, up from $227,000 in 1998, and a 5.7% gain in Riverside County to $148,000 last year from $140,000 in 1998.

San Diego County saw a 5.6% increase in median home prices to $207,000 last year from $196,000 in ’98.

Gains in median home prices were more moderate in San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties, with a 3.1% jump in San Bernardino County to $132,000 last year, from $128,000 in 1998. Los Angeles charted a 2.2% gain to $188,000 in 1999 from $184,000 in 1998.

Some other realty tidbits from 1999:

* The aggregate value of Southern California’s housing stock also hit an all-time high in December. The region’s 3.83 million homes and condos were worth $931 billion last month, up 9.2% from $852.9 billion for the same period in 1998.

* During the last year, 522 of the 560 Southland ZIP Codes with 10 or more sales saw increases in home values, as measured in square-foot prices. Most year-over-year increases were in the 6% to 7% range. The communities that experienced declines were mostly in desert and mountain second-home areas where price fluctuations are stronger.

* The typical monthly mortgage payment, figuring 20% down on a median-priced home with a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, was $1,020 in Southern California, up 9% from $936 in 1998, but below the 1989 peak of $1,270.

* Buoyed by a strong economy, the number of homeowners unable to keep up with their mortgage payments last year dropped steeply in most Southern California counties. Notices of default--the first step in the foreclosure process--posted the largest fall in Orange and Ventura counties. In Orange County, they fell 28.3%, to 4,830 in 1999 from 6,736 in 1998. The smallest recorded drop was in San Bernardino County, where notices fell 15%, to 11,185 last year from 13,136 in 1998.

* There was also a significant drop in foreclosures in most Southland counties. Orange County posted the steepest fall, recording half the foreclosures that it had the previous year. San Bernardino charted the smallest drop, with a 26% decrease in foreclosures from 1998.

Now, for the rollicking decade of the 1990s:

The realty roller coaster ride last peaked in the late ‘80s with the Southland housing market in a frenzy of multiple offers and over-bid sales.

Then the Cold War ended in 1989, spurring massive layoffs at most of the region’s major defense firms and eventually shuttering most of its defense industry.

The crumbling economy hit real estate hard, and by the mid-'90s, the region’s housing market was mired in the worst recession since the Great Depression.

But as boom follows bust, so did bust give way to recovery, led by the rebounding top-end neighborhoods. Record sales and prices were recorded in 1999, as the end of the decade saw the recovery spreading to all price ranges and almost all communities.

“It’s been a wild ride,” said Leslie Appleton-Young, chief economist for the California Assn. of Realtors. “And we haven’t peaked yet.”

What made the 10-year period from 1989 to 1999 so unusual?

For one, the late 1980s saw an unprecedented rise in home values, fueled in part by speculative buying by “flip artists,” who purchased fixers and sold them six months later for a huge profit.

“The consumer saw their house as a cash investment that was going to appreciate 10% to 15% every year for the rest of their lives,” said Bob LeFever, president and chief operating officer of Coldwell Banker Southern California.

Builders rode the wave of the speculative buying, building many more homes than they could sell. When the recession hit, this stockpile of unsold homes helped to depress prices.

Some Southern California homes dropped markedly in value in the first half of the ‘90s, Karevoll said. This drop was most pronounced in the high-end market for million-dollar homes, many of which fell 40% in value from 1989 to 1994. Newly built homes in Palmdale and Lancaster were also hammered, posting 30% drops in value for the same time period, Karevoll said.

Los Angeles, Riverside and Ventura counties were also hit hard, with homes losing about 25% of their value in these areas from 1990 to 1996. Homes in Orange and San Bernardino counties lost about 22% of their value for the same period, with San Diego posting a 15% loss.

The equity losses of the ‘90s crash have been recouped in San Diego and Orange counties and in upscale communities of Los Angeles County, such as the Westside, said Nima Nattagh, director of research for Anaheim-based First American Real Estate Solutions.

But some areas, including the San Fernando Valley, haven’t fully regained lost value, said Ken Bucalo, a broker associate with Gibson & Associates in Studio City.

The fall in home values doubled the number of homes repossessed by banks. Foreclosures for the six-county Southern California region rose 107% from 11,352 in 1991 to 23,547 in 1992 and hit a peak in 1997, when 57,998 homes foreclosed in this region. Banks then sold these properties for an estimated 70% of their value--drawing many first-time home buyers into the market, said Alfred J. Gobar, a real estate economist.

Some pockets of the Southland’s real estate market started the slow march to recovery in 1994. But many regions, including Los Angeles County, didn’t start to see an improvement in home values until 1996 or later.

High-end properties gained value more quickly than most, with prices in preferred enclaves like Newport Beach rising 30% to 40% in the last two years, said Alison McCormick, senior sales associate at Coldwell Banker’s Newport Beach office.

Likewise, million-dollar home sales in Ventura County quadrupled between 1995 and 1999, with 103 closings at over $1 million in Westlake Village alone in the last 18 months, said Bill Carter, an executive vice president at Young Realtors in Westlake Village.

In Santa Monica, buyers gobbled up two lots instead of one and built mansions, said real estate broker Fred Sands.

Some prognostications for 2000 and beyond:

Real estate markets are cyclical, which raises the question: Where do we go from here?

Even with the threat of interest-rate hikes looming, the Southland’s housing market should remain strong this year, economists and Realtors say. Some predict the market will stay robust into 2003.

CAR economist Appleton-Young says single-family home sales will decrease by about 8% this year for the state and prices will rise an average of 5% over 1999.

Realtor Sands was a bit more optimistic, predicting the total number of home sales in Southern California will decline by about 2% and home prices in the region will rise an average of 8% this year.

The region’s home builders expect to see major growth in the Inland Empire and the Antelope Valley this year, where residents will be able to pick up homes for $150,000 to $175,000, said Bruce Karatz, chief executive officer at Kaufman & Broad Home Corp.

Expected interest-rate increases are likely to discourage first-time buyers, however, which could have a domino effect on the market: If the first-timers don’t purchase the homes of those who want to move up in the market, home sales overall could slow down.

Interest rates are expected to peak at 8.3% by midyear, then decline in the fall, said Brian Carey, an economist with the Mortgage Bankers Assn. of America.

Does the current boom presage an imminent bust?

Even though home sales and prices have been on the rise since 1995, there are no red flags indicating the market is heading for trouble, according to Acxiom/Data-Quick’s Karevoll.

Such warning signs would include a rapid rise in adjustable rate mortgages, or ARMs, and a rise in foreclosures and non-owner occupied purchases.

ARMs peaked in Southern California in 1994 and are again on the rise, although they are still within the normal range at about 30% of all mortgages, he said. Foreclosures are trending down.

Experts say the region’s diverse economy--with technology, entertainment and other sectors taking the reins from defense--should help shield it from another recession.

This rosy picture, however, may be marred by the lack of buildable land in Southern California and housing shortages prompted by a large increase in jobs in many areas, especially Orange County.

The San Gabriel Valley is in the same predicament as many other areas, with housing inventory down 65% to 70%, creating a market that some Realtors compare to 1989’s run-up.

“We still have buyers looking for houses that aren’t available,” said Marty Rodriguez, a broker associate at Century 21 in Glendora. “These times are reminiscent of 1989, when sellers asked much more for a house than it’s worth and buyers grabbed them up.”

The housing crunch raises some tough choices for the region’s builders, whose numbers were thinned in the ‘90s when many developers merged to remain solvent.

“What I see in the marketplace now is a real lack of land supply,” said Steven Wolpin, vice president of sales and land acquisition at Lennar Homes.

“There’s not a whole lot of land supply left in Orange County, and that’s going to put more pressure on builders to find alternative ways to provide homes.”

Indeed, experts say that the lack of inventory in Southern California’s housing market goes hand in hand with the absence of affordable housing for many who want to make Orange County and other regions here their home.

Even several of Los Angeles’ northern suburbs are quickly becoming as expensive as some of the areas closer to downtown, including Canyon Country and Valencia, where prices have risen to $300,000 in some developments, Karatz said.

“We’re reaching a limit in terms of the affordability of houses,” said Richard Gollis, a principal at the Concord Group, a Newport Beach-based realty market research firm.

“The big question is what product type are we going to be satisfied with. Does everyone need to live in a four-bedroom house with a backyard, or should we be looking at things with higher density?”
