I received this great email from one of the lenders we work with: The market is challenging right now but we are monitoring the situation regularly and staying abreast of important changes that affect our business partners and borrowers.  I want to make you aware of reduced appraisal requirements recently implemented due to concerns about obtaining full interior and exterior inspections (a traditional appraisal) during COVID-19.Appraisal requirements have been temporarily adjusted with more flexibility to include desktop appraisals and exterior-only inspections on certain purchase transactions.  A desktop appraisal relies on public records, MLS information and other third-party data to appraise the property.  An exterior-only appraisal relies on street maps, comparable sales, photograph...

 Rising home prices have been in the news a lot lately, and much of the focus is on whether they’re accelerating too quickly and how sustainable the growth in prices really is. One of the often-overlooked benefits of rising prices, however, is the impact they have on a homeowner’s equity position.Home equity is defined as the difference between a home’s fair market value and the outstanding balance of all liens on the property. While homeowners pay down their mortgages, the amount of equity they have in their homes climbs each time the value increases.Today, the number of homeowners that currently have significant equity in their homes is growing. According to the Census Bureau, 38% of all homes in the country are mortgage-free.  In a home equity study, ATTOM Data Solutions revealed tha...

Spring is right around the corner, so flowers are starting to bloom, and many potential homebuyers are getting ready to step into the market. If you’re thinking of buying this season, here’s how mortgage interest rates are working in your favor.Freddie Mac explains: “If you’re in the market to buy a home, today’s average mortgage rates are something to celebrate compared to almost any year since 1971… Mortgage rates change frequently. Over the last 45 years, they have ranged from a high of 18.63% (1981) to a low of 3.31% (2012). While it’s not likely that the average 30-year fixed mortgage rate will return to its record low, the current average rate of 3.45% is pretty close — all to your advantage.” To put this in perspective, the following chart from the same article shows how average ...

If you’re looking to buy a home in 2020, have you thought about putting your tax refund toward a down payment? Homeownership may be one step closer than you think if you spend your dollars wisely this year.Based on data released by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Americans can expect an estimated average refund of $2,962 when filing their taxes this year.The map below shows the average tax refund Americans received last year by state: According to programs from the Federal Housing Authority, Freddie Mac, and Fannie Mae, many first-time buyers can purchase a home with as little as 3% down. Truth be told, a 20% down payment is not always required to buy a home, even though that’s a common misconception about homebuying. Veterans Affairs Loans allow many veterans to purchase a home wit...

In the spring, many excited buyers get ready to enter the housing market. Others continue dreaming about the homes they’d like to buy.

A Realtor.com study compared active home listings per 1,000 residents and found that Fla. homebuyers have it easier than other areas of the U.S. Cape Coral, Miami and Daytona Beach led the “easiest markets to find a home” list with seven Fla. metros in the top 20.   ORLANDO, Fla. – The inventory of for-sale homes has hit a record low, but many Florida metros aren’t suffering as much as other areas of the U.S. When mortgage rates dropped in late 2019, some buyers scrambled to secure a home before rates rose again, sending an already tight inventory into an evener tighter inventory, according to a realtor.com analysis. However, no Florida city made realtor.com’s “20 toughest markets to find a home” list, and seven Florida metros are on the “easiest markets to find a home” list. Sunshine S...

The success of the U.S. residential real estate market, like any other market, is determined by supply and demand. This means we need to look at how many potential purchasers are in the market versus the number of houses that are available to buy. With early 2020 housing data now rolling in, it’s quite evident there are two big stories impacting this year’s residential real estate market:1. Buyer demand is already extremely strong2. Housing supply is at a historically low levelDemandShowingTime is a firm that compiles data from property showings scheduled across the country. The latest ShowingTime Showing Index reveals how showings have increased in each of the country’s four regions for five months in a row.SupplyMove.com also just released information indicating that the number of hom...
