Keywords: rental increases, Angelenos, Los Angeles, cost of living, renters Rentally Deranged Dear Mayor Eric Garcetti, When the recession happened, and the housing market crashed in Los Angeles a few years back many people lost their homes. The foreclosure crisis displaced many homeowners, drove up demand, and rental prices increased. Now, it is almost two years later, and the dramatic rent increases continue to soar. There would be no issue with cost of living increase except; the increases in income have yet to make the same shifts. “In many cities, rent is rising out reach of
REITs are securities that invest its major funds in real estate to produce income and distribute its majority of returns to their shareholders. Many individuals are interested in investing in stocks whereas some are interested in investing in real estate. REITs provide a combination of both by the individuals that are investing in securities and later on the trust will be investing in real estate. (Pagliari, 2005, 158)
A report prepared by the Economic Roundtable, Rental Housing 2011; The State of Rental Housing in the City of Los Angeles, noted that the city’s rental property had increased due to foreclosures that had started during the 2008 recession and been converted to rental property. Although this increased the options for renters, the incomes of family households had been decreasing since 1990. In this report, Daniel Flaming and Patrick Burns state, “Over the past decade, rent as a share of income has shifted from being barely affordable to predominantly unaffordable for renters (2012). They also note that the majority of renters in this area pay 30% to 50% of their income on rent. This is compounded by the problem of the increase of
Though it is carefully associated to real estate expending, the distinction is still evident. Real estate investing can be too overwhelming for a regular residence owner who needs to invest on something lucrative. Moreover,
Nowadays, investing in real estate is one of the lucrative commercial sectors that will provide large chances for an investor to generate cash with no trouble. Real estate is a commercial industry that, over time, has dealt with very small threats or failures. This is measured in such a way that investing in real estate is very much gainful and favorable when assessed to divide selling and buying cash or perhaps trading gold, silver, or even platinum.
Meanwhile, yearly house price inflation rates in the top 20 cities are running in line with the national trend. The cities with the highest rates of increase are Seattle (+12%), Portland (+10%) and Dallas (+9%). Lower tier property prices appear to be more volatile than their high end counterparts in both Seattle and Portland. Meanwhile, the three cities with the lowest rates of house price inflation are New York (+3%), Washington (+4%) and Cleveland (+5%). Furthermore, rising house prices appear to be having an adverse impact on affordability. According to the National Association of Realtors, rising prices are offsetting higher disposable incomes and stable mortgage rates, and affordability has consequently been declining since January 2015. Partly driving the increase in prices is a lack of available supply of existing single family homes for sale. The number of months’ of unsold inventory was just below 4 in March and availability has been gradually falling since 2014. Additionally, there is a relatively tight supply situation for new single family homes for sale, which is also helping to support prices.
Nick Vertucci, a real estate expert, has spent years educating himself about the housing industry. He predicts that a tipping point
In the aftermath of the Housing Bubble and Great Recession of 2008, unemployment has remained high and incomes have become stagnant, putting a strain on household budgets and preventing buyers from purchasing homes. Most recently, the decreasing value of homes and increased foreclosures have all contributed to the high growth
A core tenet of the American dream is home ownership. At the turn of the century, young adults were buying homes. However, since the bursting of the housing bubble and the resulting mortgage banking crash, the rate of younger Americans purchasing a home has fallen sharply. Many
Strategic Housing Development Initiatives Despite slow household growth in the last decade, there are several factors that indicate the housing market is set to rebound. The economy has seen a current increase in the number of people who are renting living spaces, whether they be apartment or homes (Searcey, 2015). As there continues to be a higher demand for rentals, especially in heavily populated cities, the rent pricing will increase. Justifying high rent prices, when comparable to purchasing a home, will be difficult to do. According to the National Association of Realtors, a large portion of Americans are allocating a large share of their income for housing. Economists predict that home buyers will continue to rise as long as the economy
In the first quarter of 2006 the rent price ratio had its lowest point (between 2000 and 2014) at 3.11%. The rent/price ratio rose to its highest point in 2012.1 with the ratio amounting for 4.66%. A low rent/price ratio is caused by decreasing rent, increasing house prices and stable rent, or a combination of both1. As the rent/price ratio is highly dependent on housing prices, the housing crisis around 2007-2009 had a major impact on rent prices as well. The economic background that led to the housing bubble is diverse. First, the 2000 stock market crash resulted in many investors withdrawing from the stock market. At the same time rising property prices since the early 90s seemed to be an attractive alternative to invest. Homeownership increased

It is likely that the renting trend will decline and buying will increase in the future but it is hard to say when. However, “if rent keeps rising and prices keep falling, fearful buyers could slowly become bargain hunters.” (Business Week, 2014). I feel that people will eventually get tired of spending there money on rent and will want to invest more in there future. I don’t think that the real estate market will ever be a boom again. I believe that people have learned that just because interest rates are low doesn’t mean they can financially take on a mortgage.
