INTEREST RATES HAVE GREAT WEEK – CLOSE TO LOWEST LEVELS OF 2014

INTEREST RATES HAVE GREAT WEEK – CLOSE TO LOWEST LEVELS OF 2014

April 14th, 2014

Interest rates continued their hot streak that started last week with the March employment report. Stocks continue to trade down which is helping drive money to the Bond market and the Mortgage Backed Security Market (MBS).

The MBS market has traded up 6 of the past 7 days and the one day that it didn’t trade up, it traded even.  The MBS market closed last week up + 47 bps.

Interest rates are now at their lowest levels in a month and close to their lowest levels of 2014.

30 year fixed rates at 4.25% are now available paying .32 points, and a 4.375% is available with 0 points. A well qualified customer can get a 15 year fixed rate at 3.25% for .81 points, and 3.5% with 0 points.

Monday could be very telling. Usually rates don’t move one way for too long. Interest rate pricing has improved for 6 straight days. We are bound to have a rebound day soon.

INTEREST RATES CREATE NEW LOWS FOR  2014

January 27th, 2014

Interest rates continued their hot streak ahead of the FED statement on Wednesday.  Mortgage interest rates pushed to new lows in 2014 with the stock markets having a big sell off and investors transferring money into safer investments.

This improvement in rates could be temporary depending on if the stock markets bounce back.  I would strongly recommend locking as these are the lowest rates I have seen in close to 2 months.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will release a statement on Wednesday that will likely have a major impact on rate pricing.  Experts are still torn on whether the FED will keep current bond purchasing levels or reduce them another 10 million.     

If the FED reduces its bond purchasing again, expect to see rates bounce back higher.  

Have a great week!!

HOME VALUES RISING ACROSS MARICOPA COUNTY

HOME VALUES RISING ACROSS MARICOPA COUNTY:

May 2nd, 2012

Statistics continue to show that home values are starting to recover across Phoenix and Maricopa County.

Low inventory and high demand are pushing up values.  Many buyers are finding the need to put in offers quickly, as a home can have multiple offers the first day on the market.  This is also creating higher value offers, as a buyer would like to distinguish their offer from the others.  Offers over listing price are not uncommon.   

It may be a more difficult process finding a home in this market, but rates are great, and values trending up will only help our market in the future.

In comparing March of 2012 versus March of 2011, the value per square foot in Maricopa County went up 15%!!

We are also seeing less and less bank owned sales, which are typically for lower prices as the bank would like to get the property off their books. 

Lender owned sales are down 53% from March of 2011 to March of 2012.

Short Sales are up 51%.

Even though short sales are up, the total amount of distressed property sales are down 42%.  And the total amount of non distressed sales are up 32%.

This combination of low inventory, high demand, and less distressed property sales are pushing values back up in Maricopa County.

Home Values Rising Across Maricopa County.

BANKS ACCEPTING MORE SHORT SALES IN MARICOPA COUNTY, ARIZONA

BANKS ACCEPTING MORE DISTRESSED SALES IN MARICOPA COUNTY

March 2nd, 2012

When the housing bubble first burst in Arizona, most banks were taking back delinquent properties versus working with home owner’s to sell their property at a loss. 

Recent statistics show that banks are more and more likely to accept a short sale or sell the home at an investor auction versus taking back a delinquent home.  This is encouraging for homeowners exploring a short sale, as data suggests that there is a higher likelihood of a short sale going through.   

There are many benefits to a short sale – the most important one being that most short sales include a clause where the homeowner is no longer responsible to repay the bank.  When a home is foreclosed upon and taken back, the bank can come after you for a numbers years if they should choose to do so.

STATISTICS FOR DISTRESSED SALES AND TAKE BACKS IN MARICOPA COUNTY:

In 2011, There were 62,156 distressed title transfers

34,634 were short sales or investor sales   /   27,522 were properties taken back.

In 2010, There were 67,208 distressed title transfers

28,490 were short sales or investor sales   /   38,718 were properties taken back by the bank.

In 2009, There were 60,682 distressed title transfers

20,065 were short sales or investor sales   /   40,797 were properties taken back by the bank.

As more and more banks are willing to accept short sales, delinquent homeowners should attempt to work on a short sale versus giving the property back.  In most cases, a homeowner will get a check for closing a short sale and they do not have to worry about the bank coming after them in the future for losses incurred.

AUGUST 2011 – PHOENIX, ARIZONA’S HOUSING NUMBERS:

October 10th, 2011

PHOENIX, ARIZONA’S AUGUST HOUSING NUMBERS:

This summer was a record summer for Single Family Residence leases. There were 6,892 single family leases signed compared to 5,664 in the summer of 2010. The numbers reflect the increasing amount of potential homeowners that can not buy due to foreclosures or short sales on their credit. 

Hopefully something is done to lower the amount of time needed to elapse to qualify for a new loan after a foreclosure or short sale. There are a very large number of possible home owners that  have these on their records due to the large drop in home prices.  If the credit requirements do not change, we will continue to see Arizona residents in leases that would typically own a home.

Even though leases are up,   sold inventory continues to post impressive numbers. 8,817 sales were recorded in Maricopa County in August of 2011. This compared to 7,358 for August of 2010. Median home prices are still slightly down compared to this time last year.

Overall, August was a great month for the Arizona housing industry. The more sales we have, the more the industry is turning over the vast amounts of REO and short sale homes on the market. These need to sell and we need to move to a more traditional market for the prices to rise again.

A Short Sale in Scottsdale, Arizona Solves Problems For Buyers And Sellers Alike

A Short Sale in Scottsdale, Arizona Solves Problems For Buyers And Sellers Alike

When it comes to short sales, likely you have heard things both good and bad about the process. In general, it is a good way to help a homeowner get out from under mortgage payments that you can no longer afford, without having a major negative impact on their credit score. If you live in the Scottsdale area or are looking to buy a home in the area, learn more about this process and the benefits offered to both buyer and seller.

In today’s economic climate, many homeowners are finding that they owe more on their home than what it is worth. Due to loss of income, unemployment, bankruptcy, divorce or other extenuating circumstances they can no longer pay their mortgage. If this describes you current financial situation, you are likely facing foreclosure, which is something you would rather avoid if at all possible. As Certified Distress Property Experts in Scottsdale, Arizona, we can help you negotiate the short sale process with your lender, so that you can sell your home for less than you owe to a willing buyer.

Scottsdale, Arizona is a very desirable city where home prices may be considered out of reach, but Short Sales and Bank owned properties have lowered prices and this could be a great time to get into the Scottsdale housing market. The short sale process allows buyers to purchase their dream home for considerably less money, which is ideal for today’s home buyer. We specialize in Scottsdale real estate and know the values of the homes in this area, and can easily find a property that fits within the price range of the buyer’s requirements.

If you are a homeowner trying to get out from under your mortgage, you may wonder why a lender would take an amount less than what you owe on your home. Lenders would generally rather have some money on the property, as they are not in the business of owning or managing property. While foreclosure may drop your credit score by as much as 250 points, the short sale process generally drops it by only 100 points. You can also purchase another home of your own quicker, while foreclosure usually results in a wait of 5 to 7 years or longer.

Buyers looking for a home in the Scottsdale area will find that short sales allow them to purchase a beautiful home for a price they can afford. For example, a home may be worth $500,000.00 or more, but the lender may be willing to settle for $375,000. 00. This saves you a substantial amount of money, and you get a lot more home for your money.
Either way, the process is an involved one that most people do not want to enter without the advantage of a Scottsdale real estate professional on their team. As Certified Distressed Property Experts, we can negotiate and handle the bulk of the work, making the process both easier and less time consuming. If you are looking to buy or sell in Scottsdale, Arizona contact a reputable Certified Distressed Property Expert like us to make the entire process quick and seamless.

ARIZONA HOUSING STATISTICS – BREAKING RECORDS!!

ARIZONA HOUSING  STATISTICS  :  BREAKING RECORDS!!

June was a record month for Arizona housing.  10,868 home sales occurred in June of 2011, surpassing the previous record of 10,252 units sold in June of 2005.

June was also a record month for home leases of Single Family Residences.  2,280 new leases were executed last month, beating the previous record of 2,002 leases in July of 2008.

Typically home sales and leases go in the opposite direction, but with all the short sales and foreclosures occurring – there are a lot of people changing residences. 

Arizona short sales also set a record, contributing to 2,734 sold units – up 33% from May.

We are still very much in a market fueled by investors.  41% of Single Family Residences sales were purchased in cash.  29% with conforming loans, 24% with FHA loans, 4% with VA loans, and 2% with others.

Lastly, the median home price in Arizona increased in June to 111,000 from 109,000 in May.
