Women Breaking New Ground in Homebuilding

March 27, 2023
Shea Homes / PRNewswire

MARINA, Calif., March 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- When J.F. Shea Company began a small plumbing company 142 years ago, there were virtually no women in the construction workforce. Today women in the homebuilding industry have a strong representation in sales, marketing, legal, and finance, but there are still relatively few women in the field of construction.

Shea Homes, one of the country's largest privately held homebuilders, is proud to help change that. Shea hired Teichert Construction, who employs an all-women crew, to prepare sites for new homes at The Dunes and The Enclave in Monterey County. Driving huge earth movers to create roads, infrastructure and homesites is no small task. Maneuvering heavy equipment with names like scrapers, rollers, blades and skip loaders requires tremendous skill and precision.

Shea Homes has been transforming the former US Army base of Fort Ord in Marina, California into a modern residential community that combines sustainability features with a connection to the natural environment. When complete, The Dunes will have over 1,200 homesites and is expected to include a main street promenade, hotels, restaurants, art walk, shopping and entertainment, just across Highway 1 from one of California's most picturesque State Beaches.

CityLab Daily: What the SVB Collapse Means for Affordable Housing

March 20, 2023
Sri Taylor - Bloomberg

When Silicon Valley Bank shut down on Friday, it sent politicians and executive scrambling to contain shockwaves through California’s broader economy. The collapse caused massive losses beyond the tech and startup scenes; the bank was also a key lender for other industries, including affordable housing development. In San Francisco, construction has stalled, for example, on The Kelsey Civic Center — a 112-unit low-cost housing project that was supposed to break ground this week with a $52 million loan from SVB.

Wall Street Veteran Explains Why He’s Still All-In on US Housing

March 6, 2023
Sonali Basak - Bloomberg

You may know Don Mullen as one of Wall Street’s hardest-driving executives—or as your landlord. The son of an elevator repairman, Mullen shot through the ranks of Salomon Brothers, Drexel Burnham Lambert and Bear Stearns. During his 11 years at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., he played a key role in the company’s sale of investments backed by subprime mortgages just as the housing market crashed—part of a trade sometimes referred to on Wall Street as the “Big Short.” In 2009 he traveled to some of the US’s worst-hit communities, spending $25 million of his money to buy distressed properties, before deciding to expand it into a business. He founded Pretium Partners LLC in 2012, turning it into a $51 billion asset manager and one of the country’s largest private owners of ­single-family homes and rentals.

Pretium tells investors it aims to achieve percentage returns in the mid- to high-teens over a long period of time, according to Mullen. But he declines to say more because, in his words: “I’m in a highly politically sensitive asset class.” He didn’t elaborate.

Homebuilders Are Signaling Buyers to Wait a Little Longer

February 27, 2023
Conor Sen - Bloomberg

After 30-year mortgage rates surged past 7% in October, a decline to near 6% in recent weeks has made the start of 2023 look less awful than some had feared. So what does this mean if you’re looking to buy a house? If you read between the lines on what homebuilders are saying about their plans for the year, they’re telling buyers to wait a few more months if they’re looking for a deal.

This is straightforward strategy on the builders’ part, based on dynamics related to their order backlogs, the rapidly evolving cost environment and what makes the most sense for them from a profit standpoint.

Architerra & Selkirk Construction Strategically Combining in 2023

February 20, 2023
Architerra & Selkirk Construction

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Jan. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Architerra and Selkirk Construction have announced they will be strategically combining in 2023 to strengthen both organizations and provide more options to home buyers. By combining Selkirk's expertise in the custom on-your-lot home building and Architerra's regional reach as a leading developer of thoughtfully planned neighborhoods, home buyers will have expanded options to build the home of their dreams in Architerra's communities or on their own land.

What Does This Mean for Selkirk Construction & Architerra?
Selkirk and Architerra have already been collaborating on several other projects, including the Parkllyn Estates. This and all existing projects and agreements under both companies will continue as previously planned with expanded resource pools as the two companies combine. Selkirk is moving from their current office location to the new combined office located at 1859 N Lakewood Dr Suite 200, Coeur d'Alene. The two companies will now offer home buyers a diverse array of home-building and buying options that will fill a much-needed gap in our regional market.

Homebuilder Analyst Who Nailed 2022 Call Now Sees Strength Ahead

February 14, 2023
Breanna Bradham & Norah Mulinda - Bloomberg

An analyst who called a grim start for homebuilding stocks this year as well as their rebound in recent months is confident that the group will stay strong in 2023.

The sector should fare better than the S&P 500 Index next year, according to Kenneth Zener at Keybanc Capital Markets. The group fell harder than the overall market earlier this year, so based on a historical review of their performance going back to the 1960s, the analyst expects homebuilders to recover first. Zener has been positive on homebuilders since September, after warning in January that the stocks faced a “wall of worry.”

US New-Home Sales Unexpectedly Increase for a Second Month

February 6, 2023
Reade Pickert - Bloomberg

Sales of new US homes unexpectedly rose in November, suggesting some stabilization in demand as mortgage rates eased late in the month from their highs.

Purchases of new single-family homes increased 5.8% to an annualized 640,000 pace last month after rising in October, government data showed Friday. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of economists called for a 600,000 rate.

Housing Market Doesn’t Need Much for Buyers to Return

February 1, 2023
Conor Sen - Bloomberg

Surging mortgage rates have brought the housing market down from its giddy highs earlier this year. Now the question on everyone’s mind is how low will building, buying and prices go? We’ve already seen people who follow the market speculate about housing prices falling 10% or even 20% from peak levels.

But that kind of shock-and-awe analysis is incomplete, and based on an assumption that housing affordability has to snap back to pre-pandemic levels, or match some theoretical monthly payment-to-income ratio. A better guess about where the housing market will stabilize would take into account the fact that housing activity was still just fine up until April, even though affordability was much worse than pre-pandemic. You also would need to account for the squiggles in the data as mortgage rates have moved up and down since then.

Two Bright Spots in a Cooling Housing Market

November 7, 2022
Conor Sen - Bloomberg

Surging mortgage rates and uncertainty about the economy have put the housing market on ice. Mortgage purchase applications dropped Wednesday morning to their lowest level in 25 years and single-family housing starts will soon be down 20% on a year-over-year basis. Historically, a drop of more than 20% in single-family housing starts has meant pretty good odds for an overall recession.

Yet the US economy added 263,000 jobs in September. And while the labor market is somewhat cooler from earlier in the year, it's a long way from anything that could be characterized as weak.
