The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently reported that pending home sales increased in April for the fourth consecutive month and reached their highest peak in nine years. The steady gains in contract activity each month this year highlight the fact that buyer demand is strong
“Homeowners looking to sell this spring appear to be in the driver’s seat, as there are more buyers competing for a limited number of homes available for sale,” Lawrence Yun chief economist from NAR.
“The housing market can handle interest rates well above 4 percent as long as inventory improves to slow price growth and underwriting standards ease to normal levels so that qualified buyers—especially first-time buyers—are able to obtain a mortgage,” Yun adds.
Realtors expect for total existing-home sales in 2015 to be around 5.24 million, an increase of 6.1 percent from 2014. The national median existing-home price for all of this year is expected to increase around 6.7 percent. In 2014, existing-home sales declined 2.9 percent and prices rose 5.7 percent.
U.S. Consumer Confidence rebounded strongly in March within optimism over the labor market while house prices increased in January.
Rising confidence and home prices adds to the belief that the first-quarter slowdown will be temporary.
While consumers were less optimistic about the short-term outlook, they had greater confidence in the labor market, with the share of those anticipating more jobs in the months ahead increasing significantly. The proportion of consumers expecting income growth also rose solidly, which should help to strengthen Consumer spending.
If you have higher mortgage payments, now is the time to change it! In recent years we have seen many changes in our national economy. We have seen cuts in interest rates given by the Federal Reserve cuts not seen for many years.
One situation that influenced home foreclosures for many homeowners were the high interest rates they were granted. These mortgage loans were presented for a large number of months as a fixed payments and later converted into variable rates, causing a drastic financial instability in many homeowners facing now a new higher mortgage payment.
The HARP Refinance Program gives the Homeowners that have not been behind in the last 12 months, and can prove income under the new conditions and repayment capacity; the opportunity to refinance with low current interest rates. This means that you can refinance even if the actual mortgage balance is higher than the value of your property on the market today. The HARP and FHA programs are the only programs that allow you to refinance under these terms.
Compare and discuss your options and determine if refinancing NOW is financially right for you. The essence of refinancing is to find the best fit and financial balance for you and your family. Remember, an informed decision is the best guarantee!

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is the first of six financial regulators to release the final version of the long-awaited qualified residential mortgage (QRM) rule. The National Association of Realtors applauds this action because it will make possible to incorporate rules that include a broad definition for Qualified Mortgage standards implemented earlier this year.
Got your House?
Under the QRM rule, loans are generally considered qualified if the borrower’s debt-to-income ratio is 43 percent, among other things and there is not onerous down payment requirement, as regulators had originally proposed.
The NAR strongly opposed earlier versions of the rule that included 20 and 30 percent down payment requirements, which would have denied millions of Americans access to the lowest-cost and safest mortgages
For lenders, having these two rules in alignment provides the clarity they’ve long been asking for, widening and deepening loan eligibility and availability, which has been one of the main stumbling blocks to increased home sales.
Homebuyers will have now more credit availability reflecting an increase in home purchases, and refis. Way to go!
