According to the company, it was the highest annual rate of increase since 2005, pushing 10 states and the District of Columbia to new all-time price peaks.Out of the 47 states reporting price appreciation in December, Nevada ranked highest for another month, posting annual growth of nearly 24%. Following that were California, Michigan, Oregon, and Georgia, with price increases ranging from 12% to 20%. Only three states experienced price declines compared to December 2012: Arkansas, New Mexico, and Mississippi.A survey of potential home sellers in the first quarter finds many face the same issues that current buyers are grappling with. In a survey released by Redfin Tuesday, 29% of homeowners cited low inventory as one of the concerns they have about listing their house, while 27% said heightened competition has made them doubtful about finding a new home. Another common answer among respondents was the difficulty buyers are currently having getting financing.last_img read more

Real Estate Professionals Optimistic About Homeownership Comeback

While inventory shortages, tight credit access, and lower than average salaries have made for a bleak picture for young adults, the speakers largely agreed that these represent temporary setbacks as the economy makes its way to stable ground.”It’s not that young people don’t want to purchase homes, it’s that they are delaying the purchase,” said Lisa Sturtevant, VP of research for the National Housing Conference. “Many of the reasons millennials are not forming households or making purchases are economic, so as the economy improves, we should see this group become more of a force in the housing market.”Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for Realtor.com, agreed, adding that members of Gen Y accounted for 37 percent of home shoppers over the summer and are expected to make up two-thirds of household formations in the coming years. Smoke also noted that from June through September, more than half of adults between the ages of 21 and 34 visited real estate websites or mobile apps.

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Despite the extra costs and anxiety that mortgage industry professionals say come with compliance due to heightened regulation, a recent survey revealed that a majority of them would not be willing to pay for relief – a result that a survey analyst found “shocking.”On the Voice of Housing blog published by the Collingwood Group on Tuesday, analyst Margaret Mooney examined the results of the recent survey conducted by the Collingwood Group in conjunction with the Five Star Institute. Despite the fact that 89 percent of the mortgage industry professional surveyed by the Collingwood Group last September said regulations were hurting their business, 76 percent of respondents in the question posed in March’s Mortgage Industry Outlook Report said they would be willing to pay up to 25 basis points when asked how much they would pay “to be relieved of all liability for future buybacks, indemnifications and/or lawsuits” – but in reality, they would pay only five to 10 basis points.”They argued that this is a reasonable range because it is what the majority of originators currently retain for repurchase reserves,” Mooney wrote. “Some indicated that it depends on the loans in question and the severity of the indemnification agreements and/ or lawsuits.”Twenty-four percent of those surveyed said they would pay up to 50 basis points for relief from liability, while 1 percent indicated they would pay up to 75 basis points. Seven percent said they would pay up to 100 basis points, and just 1 percent said they would pay more than 100 basis points. Mooney said the results of the survey were “shocking” when considering last September’s survey results.”Given the results from previous surveys where respondents indicated that the risk of buybacks, indemnifications and lawsuits were a major concern, we expected respondents to be willing to pay more for peace of mind,” Mooney wrote.(Editor’s Note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of DS News and DSNews.com) Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Analyst: Majority of Mortgage Professionals Unwilling to Pay for Liability Relief Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribe Sign up for DS News Daily last_img read more

Peck has edited three published books and has served as Copy Editor for Entrepreneur.com. Previous: YoY Housing Affordability Declines—a First Since January 2019 Next: Concerns Grow as Foreclosure Moratoria Date Nears The latest Radian Home Price Index (HPI) has found that home prices nationally rose from the end of March 2021 to the end of April 2021 at an annualized rate of 10.4%.For the prior 12 months, the Radian HPI rose 9.2% (April 2020 to April 2021), the fastest annual rate recorded since before the COVID outbreak. While the April month-over-month rate was slightly lower than the prior month, the 12-month rate increased compared to March. Recent annual increases are benefiting from the more distanced months of lower appreciation recorded during the early days of the national shut-down.“As we are now a full year from the initial COVID induced national closures of 2020, the U.S.’s strong national housing market continues to chug along in April,” said Steve Gaenzler, Radian’s SVP of Data and Analytics. “Pent-up demand for homes, improving economic activity, a strong labor market and low mortgage rates have been strong tailwinds for housing. However, as the U.S. starts to see growing considerations for ending or reducing government stimulus (monetary and fiscal) in the coming months, and concerns of higher potential inflation making headlines, there is a need to keep a very close eye on housing in the coming half year.”Nationally, the median estimated price for single-family and condominium homes rose to $277,356. Since the start of the COVID lockdowns in March 2020, the average home in the U.S. has appreciated by more than $20,000. Home price appreciation over the past year has increased homeowner equity levels by more than $1.5 trillion dollars as Americans continue to cash in on record home sales. Redfin recently reported that half of the homes sold nationwide went for more than their list price during the four-week span ending May 16, marking a 23% rise from the same period year-over-year.Home price gains can be partially attributed to the continued lack of supply. After falling for 10 of the prior 12 months, active listings have now increased three consecutive months—although only by 32,000 properties from the prior month. In April, more than 881,000 residential properties were for sale, the fifth month with less than one million properties listed nationally. Over the last decade, the U.S. has had an average of 1.4 million homes on the market each month. At the current count of active listings, the U.S. has 40% fewer homes on the market, on average, than at any time over the past decade.As a result of the shortage in supply, more and more are clamoring for the few houses on the market, snatching them up in record time. Redfin reported that in April 2021, the typical single-family home went under contract in 19 days, 16 days fewer than just a year ago and the fastest pace since Redfin began reporting this metric.New home construction has felt the sting as well, with the cost of labor and lumber remaining a concern, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Census Bureau recently reported that housing starts dropped in April 2021, hitting 1.57 million units, down 9.5% from March, but is 67.3% above the April 2020 rate of 938,000.While all six Regional indices reported higher 12-month rates of home price appreciation, only two Regions (Mid Atlantic and Northeast) reported higher rates of appreciation compared to March. In April, the Northeast narrowly edged out the South Region for the highest appreciation rate (+11.9 percent). All Regions showed strength in the month with the worst performing Region (Midwest) still recording an impressive 9.1% increase from the prior month. Nebraska, Arizona, Arkansas and Mississippi have shown the greatest increase in appreciation. The most consistently strong states for appreciation in the last half year include Idaho, Montana, Georgia, and Washington. While these states showed increasing or consistently steady rates of appreciation, 11 of the 50 states plus the District of Columbia recorded lower monthly appreciation rates than the average appreciation over the last six-months including North Carolina, North Dakota, West Virginia, and Kentucky.Click here for more on Radian’s April 2021 HPI report.last_img read more
