Pending Home Sales Surge in May

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Pending home sales surged in May, spurred by lower interest rates and increased inventory, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported Monday.The group’s Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI), which measures contract signings as an indicator of future sales figures, jumped 6.1 percent month-over-month to 103.9. It was the largest one-month increase since April 2010, when the index spiked 9.6 percent as first-time buyers moved to sign purchase contracts to qualify for the First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit.With both new and existing-home sales showing promise in May, the association expects the momentum to continue.”Sales should exceed an annual pace of five million homes in some of the upcoming months behind favorable mortgage rates, more inventory and improved job creation,” said NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun. “However, second-half sales growth won’t be enough to compensate for the sluggish first quarter and will likely fall below last year’s total.”All four regions of the country posted increases in pending sales numbers, with the Northeast leading with an 8.8 percent month-over-month gain to an index of 86.3. The Northeast was also the only region where pending sales increased year-over-year, rising 0.2 percent.In the Midwest, NAR reports pending home sales were up 6.3 percent to an index of 105.4, while pending sales in the West rose 7.6 percent to 95.4. Pending home sales in the South, meanwhile, increased 4.4 percent to 117.0.Still, Yun says waning affordability and tight credit access are still major obstacles for first-time homebuyers, who only accounted for 27 percent of May’s existing-home sales. With pending home sales still down 5.2 percent compared to a year ago, the market is feeling that group’s absence.As most first-time buyers—Millennials especially—battle challenges with debt, “[s]olid income growth and a slight easing in underwriting standards are needed to encourage first-time buyer participation, especially as renting becomes less affordable,” Yun said.Overall, NAR anticipates existing-home sales will finish 2014 totaling 4.95 million, down 2.8 percent from 2013.

Bipartisan Discussion Highlights GSE Reform, Risk Transfer, Need for More Private Capital

Bob Corker (R-Tennessee), member of the Senate Banking Committee and Sen. Mark Warner (D-Virginia), ranking member of the Senate Securities, Insurance, and Investment Banking Subcommittee.The panel included Laurie Goodman, director of the housing finance policy center at Urban Institute; Mike Fratantoni, chief economist at the Mortgage Bankers Association; Kevin Chavers, managing director at BlackRock; Pat Sinks, CEO of Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corp.; and Bob Ryan, acting deputy director of the division of conservatorship at the Federal Housing Finance Agency.Nic Retsinas, senior lecturer in real estate at Harvard Business School, moderated the panel.”Some of our wingers are migrating over to this third amendment thing because it makes it easy not to do anything.”—Senator Bob CorkerIn June, a bipartisan group of Senate Banking Committee members wrote a letter to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) requesting that the agency expand and provide better transparency of the development of the credit risk transfer programs.These programs shift credit risk from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to the private sector, according to a press release.”We supported the direction of the risk sharing language within Title VII of The Financial Regulatory Improvement Act of 2015, and we strongly support the expansion of these transactions, given they provide a vehicle for moving the government out of the first loss position and inform the process for policymakers looking to invite greater private capital into the market,” the senators noted in the letter.“The credit risk transfers are a vehicle for moving the housing market forward by attracting private sector investors, improving access to credit, and reducing taxpayer risk. As such, we ask that you prioritize work with the Enterprises on transactions designed specifically to push out first loss credit risk to the market, and to encourage transparency for investors and the public so that we can all better judge how these transactions impact returns to the Enterprises, costs to the taxpayer, and effects to the health of the broader housing finance system,” the letter stated.Corker cautioned that GSE reform could “be a while and won’t happen in the next year and four months. Some of our wingers are migrating over to this third amendment thing because it makes it easy not to do anything.”The overall consensus of the panelists was that moving forward, the goal should be to strengthen the housing market, build more capital, and enhance credit risk transfers.However, GSE reform could be a lengthy and a difficult issue to overcome as “legislation on this topic remains elusive, the new word for ‘not happening,’” the introductory speaker said.Click here to view a video of the event.

A Look Ahead at the 2018/2019 Housing Market

The fly in that ointment is that there just aren’t enough homes for sale to drive sales totals higher.That, however, could change by the end of this year. Such is the perspective of Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist of the National Association of Realtors. Yun presented his 2018 midyear forecast during the 2018 REALTORS Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, where he said that, despite headwinds, a moderate and multiyear increase in home sales is likely ahead. Home sales rates cooled noticeably last year. According to NAR, after accelerating 3.8 percent in 2016, existing home sales rose only 1.1 percent to 5.5 million in 2017. Yun said he expects that rate to bump to almost 2 percent this year and then turn into 5.7 million home sales next year.“Overall fundamentals remain solid, driven by a growing economy and steady job creation, which will sustain home sales in 2018 slightly above last year’s pace,” Yun said. “The worsening housing shortage means home prices are primed to rise further this year too, hindering affordability conditions for homebuyers in markets across the country.”Until then, the widespread shortage of homes for sale is the major factor limiting sales, Yun said. Home sales have risen modestly since the start of the year, but without more supply to satisfy demand and alleviate the upward pressure on prices, contract activity is likely to remain flat and will more or less continue sideways through the end of the year. According to NAR, total housing inventory at the end of March was 1.67 million existing homes available for sale. That’s 7.2 percent lower than a year ago when there were 1.8 million. Inventory has trended steadily downwards for the past five years, Yun said, and the country is “experiencing the lowest inventory levels in a generation.” Unsold inventory, he said, is at a 3.6-month supply, which is down from 3.8 months a year ago.Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at Realtor.com, who also spoke at the expo, said there are 250,000 fewer starter homes (those priced under $200,000) now than there were two years ago. The shortage has pitted millennials, boomers, and inventors against each other for a smaller pool of affordable inventory.“There is reason for optimism ahead though,” Hale said. “We are starting to see new listings grow in recent months; the inventory shortage isn’t over, it took us years to get into an inventory rut, so it’s going to take us years to get out of it, but we do see signs of a turnaround.”While consumer optimism for finding a home is waning, Hale said buyers aren’t giving up their dreams. “Buyers know it’s tough,” she said. “Thirty-five percent of shoppers anticipate a lot of competition, but they remain optimistic, and more than 70 percent expect to close in 2018.” Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agocenter_img Sign up for DS News Daily A Look Ahead at the 2018/2019 Housing Market Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Scott Morgan is a multi-award-winning journalist and editor based out of Texas.

In a report, Freddie Mac takes a look at not necessarily where rents are highest, but where rents are unaffordable for the average person.“Rental affordability is a significant challenge for metropolitan areas across the United States,” said Steve Guggenmos, VP of Freddie Mac Multifamily Research and Modeling. “The vast majority of the units Freddie Mac finances are affordable. Even so, our research shows that supply just hasn’t kept pace with demand in many metros, and that’s pushing affordable rents out of reach for millions of American families.”Freddie Mac notes that cities such as San Francisco and Washington, D.C., do not make the list due to the higher incomes despite the higher than average rent costs. However, the GSE states that these cities still see that lower income households in these highest cost markets are amongst the most burdened by the lack of affordable housing, even though it is not reflected in the report.“What tends to be lost in the analysis is the impact of high rents on tenants who earn well below the median renter income. Firefighters, police officers, teachers, and other members of a city’s vital workforce earn only modestly more than their suburban or rural counterparts. As a result, they often struggle to afford housing in the communities in which they serve,” Guggenmos said.Miami tops Freddie Mac’s list, followed by West Coast cities San Diego and Los Angeles. Miami, in particular, is impacted by its lower-than-average median income for potential renters, as rents are significantly higher than in other Florida cities.For renters looking to escape high rent costs and move on to homeownership, now may the the best time. Entry level home prices are growing at their slowest pace since mid-2016, and inventory is showing consistent positive growth, as this spring turns into a homebuyer’s market, according to RealEstate.com’s Entry-Level Market Report.”Buying a home for the first time is an incredibly exciting yet extremely stressful time,” said RealEstate.com General Manager Justin LaJoie. “Potential buyers who tested the waters in recent years should have an easier time now, which should be especially good news for anyone who made an offer but lost their bid for a home. First-time buyers can give themselves an extra boost by being well-informed, prepared buyers. And the work they do—contacting more agents, doing more research and visiting open houses—should pay off this year.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Housing Insecurity Ahead?

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Zillow recently released a report highlighting the problems that the expiration of government aid is incurring. According to the real estate experts, dark days are ahead when it comes to renters being able to pay their housing. This could have potential implications not just for those directly impacted, but for owner-investors and the larger housing industry that relies on some renters moving up to become homeowners.The report revealed that during this past month of June, 32 million Americans received unemployment benefits from the U.S. government. Yet even with this federal aid, more renters were reported to have been late or completely delinquent in paying their rents than at any other time since the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic.Zillow recently released a report highlighting the problems that the expiration of government aid is incurring. According to the real estate experts, dark days are ahead for housing. During this past June, 32 million Americans received unemployment benefits from the U.S. government. Yet even with this federal aid, more renters were reported to have been late or completely delinquent in paying their rents than at any other time since the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic.The bad news continues, with the report predicting that even more renters will be unable to pay on time—if at all—in the weeks ahead. The main reason for this cloudy prediction is that boosted government unemployment aid has expired.More missed payments will likely lead to an increase in housing insecurity. The ramifications of this will not only directly affect renters but also rental investors and owners who also have to make ends meet and rely on renters’ payments in order to do so.  Zillow economist Joshua Clark voiced his take on what exactly is happening, and why: “The rental market has been more affected by the coronavirus pandemic than the for-sale side appears to have been. The steady climb of the past few years has come to an end as rent growth has slowed nationally and prices have outright fallen in a few markets. The saving grace has so far been government aid and eviction freezes, which have provided a lifeline for those who are out of work. But much of that aid has expired, putting many renters and workers who rely on the rental market continuing apace in a vulnerable position.”Rachel Briseño Bruno, a San Antonio-based Realtor, further commented on the current times: ”This is an incredibly stressful time for so many, especially when it comes to people’s homes, the place we go to be safe. Many landlords we work with own one or two properties as an investment for retirement or a child’s college fund, and they are on the hook for mortgage payments on those homes. Losing just one tenant who may have lost a job and moved back home or in with a friend can have an enormous impact.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Journal, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Andy Beth Miller is an experienced freelance editor and writer.
