Home Sales Expected to Take Gradual Upturn
Home sales are projected to move in a relatively narrow range with a gradual upturn becoming more pronounced by the end of the year, according to the latest forecast by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSŪ.

“Overall housing levels are historically strong, but sales remain sluggish compared to the recent boom,” says Lawrence Yun, NAR senior economist. “It’s important to keep in mind that all real estate is local, and many markets are expected to have higher sales and strengthening prices during the second half of this year.”

What to Expect

NAR makes the following projections on the housing market:
 
  • Existing-home sales: projected to total 6.18 million in 2007 and 6.41 million next year, in contrast with 6.48 million in 2006.
  • New-home sales: forecast at 860,000 this year and 901,000 in 2008, down from 1.05 million last year.
  • Housing starts: likely to total 1.43 million units in 2007 and 1.49 million next year, below the 1.80 million recorded in 2006.

Meanwhile, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is likely to increase to 6.6 percent in the third quarter and then hover at that level through 2008.

The national median existing-home price should ease by 1.3 percent to $219,100 in 2007, before rising 1.7 percent next year. The median new-home price will probably fall 2.3 percent to $240,800 this year, and then grow by 2.6 percent in 2008.

“We continue to experience a temporary distortion in comparing median existing-home prices,” Yun says. “Because the sales volume has shifted from many high-cost areas to moderately priced markets, we’re not getting a true apples-to-apples comparison. When you look at other measures, such as this week’s price index from Freddie Mac which is based on repeat sales, overall home prices are rising slowly.”

Other factors to take into account that affect housing include:
 
  • Gross Domestic Product: growth in the U.S. GDP is estimated at 2 percent this year, lower than the 3.3 percent growth in 2006. Yun forecasts GDP to grow 3 percent in 2008.
  • Unemployment rate: projected to average 4.6 percent in 2007, unchanged from last year.
  • Inflation: expected to decline to 2.5 percent this year, down from 3.2 percent in 2006. Inflation-adjusted disposable personal income is likely rise 2.8 percent this year, compared with a 2.6 percent increase in 2006.

Buyers Need to Change Perspective

Buyers today need to have a traditional view of housing as a long-term investment, Yun says. “That investment generally will build a nice nest egg over time, especially if they use a traditional mortgage instrument that reduces debt,” Yun adds.

“Because of reductions in home sales and new home construction, the economy will expand at a subpar pace in 2007,” Yun says. “As housing market conditions improve going into 2008, the economy will reach back to its growth potential next year.”

30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates Rise Again
Mortgage rates increased for the sixth consecutive week, with the average 30-year fixed rate hitting a 10-month high of 6.61 percent, according to Bankrate.com's weekly national survey of large lenders.

The average 15-year fixed rate mortgage, popular for refinancing, increased by a similar amount, to 6.33 percent. With larger loans, the average jumbo 30-year fixed rate climbed to 6.86 percent. Even adjustable rate mortgages were in on the act, with the average one-year ARM rising to 6.17 percent and the 5/1 ARM jumping to 6.52 percent.

Mortgage rates continue to climb in response to strong economic data and indication from the Federal Reserve that lower interest rates are not in the forecast, Bankrate said in its weekly report.

Fixed mortgage rates have increased nearly one-half percentage point since mid-March. At the time, the average 30-year fixed mortgage rate dipped to 6.16 percent, meaning that a $165,000 loan would have carried a monthly payment of $1,006.30. With the average 30-year fixed rate now 6.61 percent, the same loan originated today would carry a monthly payment of $1,054.88. Fixed mortgage rates still remain a compelling refinancing alternative for adjustable rate borrowers facing sharp payment adjustments.

3 Buyers You May Want to Avoid
In this market, a buyer can look awfully good, but Michael Corbett — author of Ready, Set, Sold! (Plume, 2007), a guide to selling a home — says not all buyers are created equal.

Here are three types of buyers, according to Corbett, you’ll want to avoid:

1. The Zero Percent Down Buyer. If the home is priced near the top of the market, a mortgage company may find it difficult to appraise it for enough to approve the mortgage with little or nothing down. When the mortgage falls through, the home will have to go back on the market.

2. The Bully Buyer. This buyer inundates the seller with a list of things that are wrong with the house — all while presenting an offer. The inspection process will be a nightmare, with the buyer trying to obtain concessions by nitpicking on the disclosure and the inspection.

3. The Sight-Unseen Buyer. Corbett says it’s a rare buyer who will make a decision on a house without seeing it. Typically, this buyers wants to tie up the property to take it off the market and make a decision later.
