 Phoenix housing market may be headed for 'chronic supply problem'

The good news for metro Phoenix is that home values are still on a steep upswing — by more than 35 percent in November, to be exact — and foreclosures and short sales continue drying up.
Ironically, that leads us to the bad news, which is that the Valley may be headed toward — and I quote the words of a local expert — a “chronic supply problem.”
Michael Orr, a real estate expert at Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business, released his latest housing report on Thursday … (2 comments)

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%).
