real estate: The Mid Week Report...What do all of Wall Streets report mean to you? - 12/05/13 01:03 AM
The midweek report is a day late this week because I needed to digest the results of all of the reports. It is a very confusing week. Step back for a moment. While the economy was showing serious softness the stock market was soaring because company’s profits were growing. Now this week the economy is showing some strength and the stock market is falling as the interest rates are rising. The only housing report was new home sales and that picture was at odds with itself as well. New Home sales were up significantly across the country but the median price … (0 comments)

real estate: The Week Head...What New Home Sales and Employment mean to you? - 11/30/13 09:40 PM
Market Focus: Wow! Manufacturing, Auto and Chain Store Sales all wrapped up with the Employment report. Every report along with a Black Friday analysis and a cyber Monday expectation will cause everyone to speculate as to when the Fed will pull the tapper trigger. My guess is no matter what the reports December is too soon as Ben Bernanke is ending his role as leader and Janet Yellen is moving into that role.

real estate: The Mid Week Report on housing after the shutdown! - 11/27/13 01:20 AM
The pending home sales index was down for a 5th month in row, pointing to further declines for final sales of existing homes which have already fallen for 2 months in a row. The National Association of Realtors attributes some of the October weakness to the rise underway in home prices.
Meanwhile speaking of escalating home prices the FHFA house price index rose 0.3 percent after increasing 0.4 percent in August. The latest figure came in below analysts' forecast for a 0.4 percent gain. The year over year rate for September came in at 8.5 percent, matching the pace in August. … (0 comments)

real estate: The Week Ahead...What FHFA and Case-Shiller mean to you? - 11/23/13 11:00 PM
Market Focus: While the week is short and volume expected to be light we are heavy on housing this week. Seriously this is being written by a mortgage guy. All eyes I believe will be on Black Friday. Keep in mind as the S & P is up 30% for the year and December is historically a positive month the sky is the limit for stocks. Watch for the big mall reports after your holiday celebration as the stores are opening a little earlier this year.

Pending Home Sales Index: The National Association of Realtors developed the pending home … (0 comments)

real estate: The Mid Week Report on Housing - 11/20/13 01:24 AM
Now what’s ahead for housing? Lower debt to income ratios come January 10th along with some newer tougher guidelines.
With housing having been the biggest driver in pushing the economy forward over the past year or more the events of this week at the mid week report are discouraging to me. First at the beginning of the week as we were flirting with DOW 16,000 the housing market index (AKA Builders Confidence) was again above 50 at 54 but the 4th straight month of no gain. The traffic was also a low number at 42. The report does warn that activity … (1 comments)

real estate: Rhe Week Ahead...What Existing Home Sales mean to you? - 11/16/13 09:25 PM
Market Focus: Lots of Fed Speak around the FOMC minutes so we can continue to banter tapper theory. When will they tapper? The December meeting or next year? Look as well at the retail reports as they will provide a hint at the holiday season spending that currently appears to be weak. All that aside the DOW is knocking at the door of 16,000. As continued stimulus is discussed the market should continue to rise.
Monday:
Housing Market Index: The National Association of Home Builders produces a housing market index based on a survey in which respondents from this organization are … (0 comments)

real estate: Desktop Underwriter (DU) is going through another makover tomorrow! - 11/14/13 01:06 AM
Desktop Underwriter (DU) is changing again tomorrow. Fannie Mae’s automated approval process is undergoing another makeover to accommodate the new thinking at Fannie Mae. They are no longer allowing a 3% down payment. The maximum financing with a Fannie Mae loan is 95%. They are retiring interest-only and 40-year amortization terms.
 
While to some borrowers this will be a push to FHA financing that has become more expensive lately it will also push some buyers to the sidelines. Fannie Mae serves a very good purpose in the mortgage lending environment making funds more readily available to interested lenders. This … (1 comments)

real estate: The Week Ahead...What the Housing Index and Beige Book mean to you! - 07/13/13 11:45 PM
Market Focus: Earnings, Earnings, Earnings! The worry over the FED is a bit overblown so it’s all about second quarter earnings. Is it a win if you beat lousy expectations? On Wall Street it is. For those of us in the Housing market look to Starts and Housing Market Index.
Monday:
Retail Sales: Retail sales measure the total receipts at stores that sell durable and nondurable goods. Consumer spending accounts for two-thirds of GDP and is therefore a key element in economic growth. The consensus estimate is for a rise of .8% greater than last month’s .6%.
