chandler real estate: Another Publicly Traded Home Builder for Metro Phoenix - 02/13/13 08:18 AM
Another Publicly Traded Home Builder for Metro Phoenix
 
Metro Phoenix has had been one of the nation’s top home-building markets for decades. Most of the country’s large publicly traded companies construct and sell homes here, but only one of the big publicly traded builders has its corporate offices here: Scottsdale-based Meritage Homes Corp.

The $250 million public offering announced by Scottsdale-based Taylor Morrison Inc. Home Corp. last month could mean another public builder based in metro Phoenix. It will also mean even more attention to the region from Wall Street.
In Taylor Morrison’s prospectus, the company reports it will … (1 comments)

chandler real estate: Home Prices Show Largest Annual Increase in Nearly Seven Years! - 02/06/13 05:54 AM
Home Prices Show Largest Annual Increase in Nearly Seven Years
Beginning April 1st, 2013, most FHA-backed mortgages will be subject to a Monthly Mortgage Insurance increase of 10 basis points (from 1.25% to 1.35%).
But probably the biggest news announced today is FHA’s change to their Mortgage Insurance Cancellation Policy.
Beginning June 3rd, 2013 FHA has reversed its policy which allows homeowners to cancel their mortgage insurance premiums once the outstanding principal balance of the FHA loan reaches 78 percent of the original balance.  Going forward with loans closed after June 3rd, FHA will disallow the removal of MIP throughout the life of the … (0 comments)

1/28 - 2/3: Waste Management Phoenix Open

Combine sunny weather with top-notch golfers, a beautiful, challenging course and an upbeat environment, and it’s not hard to believe that the Waste Management Phoenix Open attracts more than 500,000 fans each year to the TPC Scottsdale.

The tournament, hosted by the Phoenix Thunderbirds, raises millions for charity and draws as many Arizonans as fans from across the country.

The tournament can be overwhelming for those who’ve never attended. To help, we enlisted tournament chairman Tom Altieri to put together … (0 comments)

chandler real estate: Phoenix Home Building Forecast - 01/31/13 01:44 AM
Phoenix Home Building Forecast

Last year, 11,615 new homes were built or at least started across metro Phoenix, the most since the start of the real-estate crash five years ago. As many as 16,000 new houses could be constructed in the region this year, according to real-estate analysts RL Brown and Greg Burger. The publishers of the long-running Phoenix Housing Market Letter presented their research on Thursday as part of their annual January forecast. After several dismal years for the home-building industry, Brown and Burger are cautiously optimistic about the next few years. But they don’t project — or particularly … (0 comments)

chandler real estate: Fortune Magazine has revealed its predictions for 2013 housing market - 01/23/13 10:49 PM
Fortune Magazine has revealed its predictions for the 2013 housing market, take a look! We watched for more home sales and rising prices in 2012. Here's our housing market predictions for next year.
Buying Gets Less Affordable The bust of the housing market five years ago created one of the cheapest times to buy. Across many parts of the U.S., even in some of the priciest markets including New York and Honolulu, it has become cheaper to purchase a home than rent, according to Trulia's Rent vs Buy report. Record-low interest rates on mortgages have also made buying more affordable.
That's changing, however. In 2012, prices hit bottom. … (1 comments)

chandler real estate: The signs are getting stronger, heading for another severe shortage! - 01/16/13 09:21 AM
 
Our favorite measure of supply is days of inventory (365 x active listings divided by the annual sales rate). If we examine some key areas for single family supply we find (see picture below):The signs are getting stronger that we are headed for another severe shortage of supply this spring. January is usually a month in which we get a lot of new listings piling up ready for the peak sales season in March through June. Instead the new listings are so far arriving in fairly weak volume and not necessarily located in the places people are looking to buy. … (4 comments)
