National RE Market Projected to Keep Rising

Home Values Projected to Keep Rising

As we enter the final months of 2020 and continue to work through the challenges this year has brought, some of us wonder what impact continued economic uncertainty could have on home prices. Looking at the big picture, the rules of supply and demand will give us the clearest idea of what is to come.

Due to the undersupply of homes on the market today, there’s upward pressure on prices. Consider simple economics: when there is high demand for an item and a low supply of it, consumers are willing to pay more for that item. That’s what’s hap... Read more

Safety Tips

Larry Doss Monday, June 15, 2009

During a recent news segment a security expert demonstrated a striking example of how tech gadgets kept in your car can make you a victim for car theft, and even home burglary. The main target was a GPS left firmly mounted on the dashboard, while the owner was at a shopping mall, a gym, or involved in other activities. The thieves broke into the vehicle, and when they did, also found a set of keys.

They started the car and pressed "Home" into the GPS device, which guided the culprits right to the victim’s home. Once in the driveway, all they needed do was use the garage d... Read more

Evidence that the housing market is recovering

Larry Doss Monday, June 8, 2009

Here’s more evidence that the housing market is recovering.

Two major home builders, Toll Brothers Inc. and Hovnanian Enterprises Inc., say their losses were shrinking compared to last year because buyers are coming back to the market.

Other encouraging news came from IHS Global Insight, a research firm, which said home prices fell on average at an annual rate of 2.2 percent in the first quarter in 199 of 330 metropolitan areas. That compares with a 12.5 percent decline in the fourth quarter of 2008 in 312 metropolitan areas.

Sacramento-area homeowners and prospective first-time homebuyers might be wondering: Did we miss the boat on mortgage rates?

The short answer from experts is: Probably, but rates are still very attractive.

For 10 weeks, mortgage rates were riding well below 5 percent on 30-year loans, but housing and industry analysts speculated that many first-time homebuyers and homeowners looking to refinance existing mo... Read more

WASHINGTON -- A larger share of banks has made it more difficult for people to obtain home mortgages over the last three months even as demand has grown, the Federal Reserve reported Monday.

The Fed’s new quarterly survey found that about 50 percent of U.S. banks tightened their lending standards on prime mortgages, up from about 45 percent in the survey issued in early February.

Meanwhile, 65 percent of ban... Read more

Home Ownership Slips

Daily Real Estate News | April 28, 2009

Homeownership at Lowest Level Since 2000

According to the Census Bureau, the rate of U.S. homeownership slipped in the 2009 first quarter to the lowest level since the start of the decade.

The U.S. homeownership rate dropped to 67.5 percent from 68 percent a year earlier, driven largely by a sharp decline among younger buyers as well as among African-American households.

Loose credit pushed up national homeownership levels in recent years, but the trend is now being reversed by the recession and a foreclosure ep... Read more

Fight Inflation - Buy a Home!

Larry Doss Monday, April 27, 2009

According to Daily Real Estate News, April 27, 2009, Some economic analysts say that the possibility that the economy will go into overdrive and inflation will skyrocket is a much more frightening possibility than the current recession.

One inflation hedge nearly all of them point to is real estate. Owning it outright is the best scenario, but if that’s not possible, a low-rate, 30-year fixed mortgage is the next best thing. As inflation drives up salaries, mortgage payments will stay the same, analysts point out.
