Freddie Mac forecasts a 5% increase in 2011 home sales over 2010, according to its U.S. Economic and Housing Market Outlook for April.  The report also contends that refinancing will likely account for a smaller share of loan applications later this year as wealthy borrowers decrease and mortgage rates increase. Expect to see a bit of spring in homes sales activity during the second quarter, said Frank Nothaft, VP and chief economist at McLean, Virginia-based Freddie Mac.  Nothaft continued, Sales contract signings for existing homes were up in February, positioning the market for a bounce up going into the traditional home-buying season.  The expected pick-up in home sales is due to recent positive employment reports, the Market Outlook reveals.

Housing affordability is a big part of the housing picture.  When it is cheaper to rent, then people tend to rent more.  When rents start to climb, it is a precursor to stronger demand for housing.The vacancy rate for U.S. apartments posted a steep decline in the first quarter and rents crept higher as the job market improves. The quarterly vacancy report showed the vacancy rate dropped to 6.2 percent in the first three months of the year, down from 6.6 percent in the fourth quarter. It was the steepest fall since the commercial real estate research firm began tracking the market in 1999.  New York had the nation's lowest vacancy rate, 2.8 percent, and its highest average rental, $2,794 a month. At the opposite end of the spectrum, Memphis, Tennessee had the nation's highest vacancy rat...

Taking a closer look at the realities of all the government foreclosure prevention programs sheds light on how off the mark they have been. For the record, at the time ALL of these programs were celebrated as a possible solution to the housing crash. Sure, in hindsight its all too easy to be cynical about the Obama Administrations various programs, acts, guidelines...not to mention the literally dozens of new acronyms we have all had to learn. (HAMP, HAFA, PRA, HARP etc etc) Here are the hard facts from the NYT and Corelogic: Congress set aside $50 billion for foreclosure prevention, amid administration projections that three million to four million homeowners would benefit from modifications. So far, the Treasury Department, which oversees the program, has spent slightly more than $1 b...

Home prices have fallen below fundamental values in more than half of U.S. states, overcorrecting from bubbles in some markets and dragged down by the recession in others. According to the PMI Group monthly analysis,  States where house prices are too low, although they had no bubble Indiana  is a good illustration of a surprising pattern seen for areas where prices tracked incomes quite closely even during the housing bubble, but then still got hit by declining house prices as a result of the Great Recession. Other states with similar patterns include Arkansas, Kentucky, Kansas, Iowa, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming. It is likely that house prices in these areas will recover along with job growth, which is already happening in manufacturing and a...
