2022 C.A.R. Industry Structure Survey

With the real estate industry constantly evolving at a fast pace, C.A.R. continues to monitor market conditions to make sure our members can carry out business and take care of clients as effectively as possible. One way for us to get a better understanding of the health of the market and the industry is directly through the lens of brokers and REALTORS® in the field. We sent out a survey via email this past Monday and would greatly appreciate it if you could spend about 15 minutes to complete the survey. Your feedback will provide useful insights on the outlook of the industry and offer valuable guidance to C.A.R.’s strategic planning for the upcoming years. Thank you in advance for your help!

Legal Update
Don’t miss our December 9th meeting as Neil Kalin will be joining us to discuss the forms updates. The forms are set to be released the week of December 14th, but you can preview them here.

Market Update
The housing market remains slow as it enters the traditional holiday season. With interest rates rising to the highest level in the last 20 years, both sales and prices had a soft month in October. While last week’s increase in mortgage applications due to the recent decline in rates is encouraging news, market sentiment – including those of builders – continues to lean more towards the side of caution.

Key Read for the Week
Urban Land Institute & PwC released their annual Emerging Trends in Real Estate® 2023 that’s worth taking a peek. Check it out here and below is an excerpt from their release:

“The past few years have been historic territory for the real estate industry, and the pandemic has permanently changed how and where we use different types of properties,” said Byron Carlock, US real estate leader for PwC. “There are several factors at play determining both the near and long-term future of the industry. Although real estate capital markets are constricting, they are still open for business, investors are still buying high-quality properties, lenders will continue to lend, and companies should move forward with cautious optimism through this current cycle and prepare to adapt to quick market changes. The industry should also work closely with stakeholders to help assess they are addressing demands and shifting sentiments while building trust.”
