Miami FL Real Estate Sales Statistics - April 2010

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Allstars

Two top housing economists forecast some encouraging but tempered predictions for the housing market over the next few years during an economic session at the National Association of Realtors® Midyear Legislative Meetings & Expo today.

Top housing economists, Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, and Mark Zandi, chief economist and co-founder of Moody's Economy.com, forecast some encouraging but tempered predictions for the housing market over the next few years. Both agree that job creation is key to an economic and housing recovery, with an improvement in job creation as 2010 progresses. However, they differed somewhat on the impact that foreclosures will have on home price stabilization. Yun expects a slightly stronger demand for housing and a fairly even level of foreclosures. Zandi forecasts an improving demand for housing with foreclosures rising later in 2010 before easing in 2011. Both economists project mortgage interest rates will remain historically low, the availability of jumbo loans will improve and home sales will rise over the next few years.

Let's look at look at the Miami FL real estate sales for April 2010 compared to April 2009 to see how the recovery is progressing.
