December Results Housing Pulse

 Investor Enthusiasm Is Lacking but Most Housing Markets Showing Signs of Stability

by: Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance HousingPulse Tracking Survey.

Trends in investor traffic took an uncharacteristic divergence from trends in traffic from current homeowners and first-time homebuyers in December, according to the latest results from the

However, six months after interest rates started to rise, the housing market shows remarkable resilience.

While investor traffic has largely moved in step with traffic from other buyers in recent years, the investor traffic index in December lagged behind owner-occupant indexes. The investor traffic index for December was at 46.5, essentially flat compared with the previous month. The index tracks sentiment of agents. Any average above 50 is rising; any average below 50 is falling.

The owner-occupant indexes weDecChartre both up sharply in December compared with the previous month. The current homeowner traffic index even shifted into rising territory, from 47.1 in November to 50.5 in December.

Investors accounted for 18.5% of home purchases in December, based on a three-month moving average, also flat compared with the previous month. In December 2012, investors accounted for 21.5% of home purchases, based on a three-month moving average.

The decline in investor participation is tied to rising home prices and a lack of inventory. “Prices have gone up significantly since the bottom of the market in 2010,” said an agent in Arizona. “Investors are now pulling back, but other buyers are all looking still for inventory below $150,000, which there is very little of, and not in good condition.”

 

Distressed properties accounted for 24.8% of home sales in December

This was based on a three-month moving average. The share of distressed property sales continues to be closely divided between move-in ready REOs, damaged REOs and short sales.

Florida had the highest share of distressed properties in December. Some 36% of home sales during the month were distressed property transactions, based on a three-month moving average. The industrial Midwest and Farmbelt also had distressed property proportions above the national average. The Northeast had the lowest distressed property share in December, at 18% based on a three-month moving average.

The housing market in December was much stronger than it has been in previous years.

3MonthAvg

Non-distressed properties were on the market for 9.7 weeks in December, based on a three-month moving average. In December 2012, the average time on market for non-distressed properties was 12.4 weeks.

 

Properties in western states continued to sell more quickly than the national average. In California, the average time on market for non-distressed properties in December was 4.8 weeks, based on a three-month moving average. Non-distressed properties take longest to sell in the industrial Midwest, Northeast, South and Farmbelt, where the time on market in December was at least 10.5 weeks, based on a three-month moving average.

 

Sales-to-list price ratios on non-distressed properties in December were well above levels seen in recent years. The national average was 97.1%, based on the three-month moving average, up from 95.5% in December 2012.

 

Western states and oil producing states had sales-to-list price ratios at- or above the national average for non-distressed properties in December. In California, the sales-to-list price ratio during the month was 99.7%, based on the three-month moving average.

Short Sale Rule Change for HUD Properties

 

Relationship has become an important element in the REO and short sale market. Government funding sources such as FHA (Federal Housing Authority) and HUD (Housing and Urban Development) recently announced changes to the rules for purchasing a short sale. All transactions must be arms length, meaning that no family members or relations can purchase the home through the short sale process. But relationship extends even further to close personal or business relationships – see the article below for more details.

HUD Announces New Short Sale Requirements

Effective October 1, 2013, HUD has announced the following changes to their Federal Housing Administration (FHA) short sale requirements: To be eligible, one must successfully complete a short sale under the FHA short sale program. The borrowers must meet the following requirements: They cannot list the property with or sell it to anyone with whom they are related or have a close personal or business relationship. » Read More

Gov’t Shutdown – The Effect On Real Estate

What Does the Government Shutdown

Mean for the Housing Market?

While government leaders try to sort out the implications of the government shut down, various agencies within the government must by law “shut down”. Locally in the housing market it will be felt most by the USDA’s RD (Rural Development) Loan department. Yesterday the offices were closed and will remain so until a settlement is reached.

As the federal government ground to a halt Tuesday, the question
of how the shutdown will affect the housing market remains at the front
of everyone’s mind. So how will the housing market react? The answer: it
depends.

Most economists agree that the short-term effects of the shutdown should
be minimal, assuming that the shutdown is short-lived. » Read More

How Does Housing Inventory Affect Value?

From –The KCM Blog – House Pricing is Still about Supply and Demand

 


Depending on where you live, housing markets today, can be very different. Reading the news headlines can be very confusing.  Some say inventory is down and home values rising rapidly while others are talking about the influx of REO (Real Estate Owned properties by Banks), and still others indicate that the market is beginning to balance.

One thing is clear, markets are very regional and can be very different. Florida continues to be plagued by Foreclosures while many other states have leveled out. The eastern sections are seeing more REOs because they are judicial states that had/have more red tape involved with the foreclosure process.

But through it all, as the KCM Blog states – the market is still about supply and demand.

 

 

iStock_000009109354XSmallKnowing how much inventory is for sale is crucial to determining where home values are headed. Pricing of any item is determined by supply and demand: how many items are available in relationship to how many want to buy that item. The reasons for the strong year-over-year home appreciation numbers we have been seeing is simple to explain: demand for housing is up and the supply of homes for sale has been at historic lows. But that is beginning to change.

 

The months’ supply of available housing inventory, as reported by the National Association of Realtors, has increased from 4.3 months this past January to the current number of 5.2 months. And it seems inventory will continue to increase as we move forward.

 

Last week, Realtor.com released their National Housing Trend Report which looked at the movement in inventory levels of homes for sale across the country. Here are two major findings of the report:

 

1.) Dramatic year-over-year inventory declines have evaporated.

 

Nationally inventories in July are only 5.24 percent below the level of a year ago compared to being down 16.47 percent year-over-year in January.

2.) Inventory declines decrease in local markets.

 

The number of markets with decreases in year-over-year inventory declined from 125 in June to 118 in July. This suggests that fall inventories in some markets may return to levels of a year ago.

 

In the report, Steve Berkowitz, CEO of Move, Inc. explains the impact of these findings on home values:

 

The recovery is entering a new phase where inventory shortfalls are no longer the driving force behind changes in housing prices in many markets. Larger inventories, especially in the hotter markets that experienced rapid price increases in the spring, are expanding buyers’ choices and helping to moderate price increases.

 

Don’t get carried away with recent news headlines when pricing your home. Let a real estate professional explain what the above information means to the current value of your house.
