Info That Hits Us Where We Live – Real Estate 2014

QUOTE OF THE WEEK… “It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see.” –Winston Churchill

INFO THAT HITS US WHERE WE LIVE… Keeping Sir Winston’s words in mind, let’s consider some prognostications coming out now about the real estate market in 2014. A national online listing site sees housing becoming a little less affordable and repeat buyers emerging as the market’s dominant players. The site’s chief economist explained, “repeat buyers will be able to offset the higher price of the home they buy with the higher price from the home they sell.” This expert also sees mortgage rates creeping up, although he feels that should make the mortgage process easier, as lenders shift resources from refinancings to purchase loans.

Freddie Mac’s chief economist revealed that “single family mortgage debt outstanding increased for the first time since 2008.” He further explained: “This is a positive sign, as it reflects that the pick-up in new purchase-money originations has offset loan paydowns and led to a net increase in principal outstanding.” The Mortgage Bankers Association chimed in with a report that purchase loan applications were up a seasonally adjusted 1% for the week ending December 6, compared to a week earlier.
