What to expect in 2013 in Housing

  • Housing starts, prices and confidence are on an upward trend and the tide may be turning this year to favor homesellers.
  •  Homebuyers can expect a more competitive market in 2013
  •  Homesellers are shifting into the driver’s seat
  •  Experts don’t expect significant jumps in the mortgage rate this year
  •  The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issued new qualified mortgage standards last week
  • Housing prices expected to increase.
  • There are currently more than a million homes in the foreclosure process across the country, but the crisis on a nation level is over. However, foreclosures in the most-battered markets including Florida, Illinois, New Jersey and New York are still high, and regulators have been considering state-level foreclosure reform.
  • Low interest rates caused a wave of refinancing in 2012, but experts forecast a much slower pace in 2013.

Home prices posted their biggest annual gain since May 2006

Home prices posted their biggest annual gain since May 2006, according to the most recent CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI) report.When including distressed sales, home prices in November rose 7.4 percent year-over-year. Prices also displayed a slight month-over-month increase, rising 0.3 percent from October.

“As we close out 2012 the pending index suggests prices will remain strong,” said Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic, in a release. “Given the recently released QM rules issued by the CFPB are not expected to significantly restrict credit availability relative to today, the gains made in 2012 will likely be sustained into 2013.”

Housing Market Uptrend Expected Through 2014

ORLANDO (November 9, 2012) – The housing market recovery should continue through the coming years, assuming there are no further limitations on the availability of mortgage credit or a “fiscal cliff,” according to forecast presentations at a residential forum here at the 2012 Realtors® Conference and Expo.
Lawrence Yun , chief economist of the National Association of Realtors®, said the housing market clearly turned around in 2012. “Existing-home sales, new-home sales and housing starts are all recording notable gains this year in contrast with suppressed activity in the previous four years, and all of the major home price measures are showing sustained increases,” he said.
