Existing Home Sales Solid in 2016

by The Peggy Graves Team

According to a report from RISMedia and National Association of REALTORS, existing home sales in 2016 were 5.45 million compared to 5.25 million in 2015 and 6.48 million in 2006. Making 2016 a good year for the housing market. Low mortgage rates and solid job creation made 2016 a good year for the housing market, however in December a slightly higher mortgage rates combined with low inventory levels in much of the U.S. stunted Decembers numbers. Lack of listings and slightly higher homes prices helped most of 2016 appear promising, however the surge in rates in early November caught some prospective buyers off guard and slowed their appetite and/or ability to buy as 2016 came to an end. Existing home sales in December fell 2.8%, according to NAR with a median price of $232,200. Decembers numbers may be low largely due to buyers making home purchases in November instead of December in order to lock in low mortgage rates. Decline in the amount of inventory coupled with home prices increasing faster than many peoples incomes may have also played a part.

Foreclosure Prevention Programs

by The Peggy Graves Team

Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac announced that their Flex Modification foreclosure prevention program, which was designed to help families by offering reductions to their monthly mortgage payments, ended Dec. 31, 2016. This program lasted 7 years and was designed to save struggling families who were behind on their mortgage due to financial hardship, from losing their homes. Another program called Home Affordable Refinance Program is still available through Sept. 30, 2017. This program which is similar to the previous one, is also designed to assist struggling homeowners but is aimed more specifically to offer the greatest assistance to the areas of highest need.

If you are facing a financial crisis and the possibility of losing your home to foreclosure, call The Peggy Graves Team today at 731-664-2342. We work with lenders on a daily basis who can provide you with a wealth of information about this program. Don't wait another day.

Our economy is constantly changing not just here in Jackson TN, but all across the U.S. Just over 10 years ago we experienced a housing boom, followed by a severe recession and a long, slow but steady recovery that has lasted almost 8 years with record low interest rates. We have seen a lot progress in employment from over 10% to just over 4.5%, 15 million new jobs created and record stock prices. But we are far from out of the woods. Close to 10 million jobs were lost during the recession, so in reality only 5 million new jobs were actually created and some experts argue that many of those jobs have been part time or minimum wage jobs.

So, what does a new year and new president mean for our country? We know for certain that we will continue to see change. We have already seen a solid stock market rally and higher interest rates, meaning the markets are anticipating a stronger economy that translates into higher interest rates.

Remember, that the market reaction is based on anticipation, not reality. They are anticipating a Trump presidency bringing fewer regulations and major changes in legislation. It is still too soon to predict the final outcome of changes in laws and rules, however, we know that we are a lot stronger than we were 8 years ago and we are moving in the right direction.

It is still an excellent time to buy a home. Interest rates are still remarkably low. If you or someone you know is looking for a home in Jackson, TN or surrounding areas, please call The Peggy Graves Team at 731-664-2342.
