Home Prices Continue to Rise Faster than Wages

May 3rd, 2016 Comments off

house price increases housingwire creditU. S. house prices rose 2.1 percent between Feb. and March, including distressed sales, and 6.7 percent between March 2015 and March 2016, according to constructiondive. Wages for would-be first time homebuyers likely did not rise that much on the year, MHProNews knows, putting a home out of reach.

Reporting in its Home Price Index, CoreLogic also predicted home prices will increase 0.7 percent between March and April, and 5.3 percent between March 2016 and March 2017. That is a 12 percent jump from 2015 to 2017.

President and CEO of CoreLogic, Anand Nallathambi, said home prices have appreciated nearly 40 percent since bottoming out five years ago, with the West seeing the most appreciation.

Housing helped keep U.S. economic growth afloat in the first quarter of 2016 as residential investment recorded its strongest gain since the end of 2012,” CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft said in a release. “Low interest rates and increased home building suggest that housing will continue to be a growth driver.”

Trulia reports starter-home inventory dropped 44 percent in the last five years, and that sector’s prices have increased 5.6 percent.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reports continuing price growth is hindering home construction, although some builders complain the regulatory burden is itself a barrier. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) testified recently before Congress that regulatory expenses can increase the cost of a house by 25 percent. ##

Home Prices will Moderate in Nov. and Dec.

December 4th, 2013 Comments off

Marking the 20th consecutive month of yearly increases, home prices in the U. S. increased 12.5 percent in October, compared to last year, according to CoreLogic. The worldpropertychannel reports CoreLogic’s Home Price Index, when including distressed sales, rose just 0.2 percent in October, 2013. Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic, says, “The deceleration in month-on-month trends was anticipated as strong gains in home prices over the spring and summer slow in line with normal seasonal patterns and the impact of higher mortgage interest rates.” As MHProNews has learned, Dr. Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic, adds, “The monthly growth rate is expected to moderate even further in November and December. The slowdown in price appreciation is positive for the housing market as almost half the states are now within 10 percent of their respective historical price peaks.”

Housing Analysts Predict Slow Growth

August 7th, 2012 Comments off

NationalMortgageNews says CoreLogic CEO Anand Nallathambi tells MHProNews their house price index (HPI) rose 1.3% from May to June, for the fourth consecutive month, and home values have risen 2.5% from the same period last year. When distressed sales are removed from the equation prices are up 3.2% from a year ago. Fiserv chief economist David Stiff says home prices will decline one percent into Q1 of 2013 but expects prices to increase by five percent the remainder of 2013. Noting the median home price makes buying more affordable than renting, he says, “Even if economic growth remains weak, the relative affordability of buying will push home prices upward.” However, he cautions the European monetary crisis and the political stalemate in Washington might lead to large tax hikes and declines in government spending that could result in home prices falling again.

July 2nd, 2012 Comments off
