Pending Home Sales: September 2012

Today, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) released their Pending Home Sales Report for September showing that pending home sales improved slightly with the seasonally adjusted national index climbing 0.3% since August while increasing 14.5% above the level seen in September 2011.

Meanwhile, the NARs chief economist Lawrence Yun suggests that while recent pending sales activity has been bouncing around the old familiar "narrow range", 2013 should bring a continuation to the overall uptrend:

"Home contract activity remains at an elevated level in contrast with recent years, but currently appears to be bouncing around in a narrow range, ... This means only minor movement is likely in near-term existing-home sales, but with positive underlying market fundamentals they should continue on an uptrend in 2013."

The following chart shows the seasonally adjusted national pending home sales index along with the percent change on a year-over-year basis as well as the percent change from the peak set in 2005 (click for larger version).

  2. It can be described more roughly by the number of rooms. A studio apartment has a single bedroom with no living room (possibly a separate kitchen). A one-bedroom apartment has a living or dining room separate from the bedroom. Two bedroom, three bedroom, and larger units are common. (A bedroom is defined as a room with a closet for clothes storage.)

  8. The size of an apartment or house can be described in square feet or meters. In the United States, this istanbul real estate includes the area of "living space",

  10. In most advanced economies, the main source of capital istanbul real estate used by
    individuals and small companies to purchase and improve land and buildings is mortgage loans (or other instruments). These are loans for which the real property
    itself constitutes collateral. Banks are willing to make such loans at favorable rates in large part because,
    istanbul property if the borrower does not make payments, the lender can foreclose by
    filing a court action which allows them to take back the property and sell it to get their money back. For investors, profitability can be enhanced by using an off

  12. Hey! I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about home sales in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about home sales. Keep it up! This is a good read.
    Some junior lien holders and other with an interest in the property may object to the amounts other lien holders are receiving. It is possible for any one lien holder to prevent a short sale by refusing to agree to negotiate a reduction in their payoff to release their lien. (Iowa has a procedure, sale free of liens, which allows a foreclosure court to "cram down" a short sale over the objections of the junior creditors.) If a creditor has mortgage insurance on their loan, the insurer will likely also become a third party to these negotiations as the insurance policy may be asked to pay out a claim to offset the creditor's loss. The wide array of parties, parameters and processes involved in a short sale can make it a complex and highly specialized form of debt renegotiation. Short sales can have a high risk of failure from inability to obtain agreement from all parties or they might not be approved in time to prevent a scheduled foreclosure date.
    No commitment. Once we’ve sent you our results, it’s up to you if you use them or not.
