Morning Radar: More bright spots emerge in housing market (Guest Post HousingWire)

Morning Radar: More bright spots emerge in housing market (Guest Post HousingWire) | Baton Rouge Real Estate News | Scoop.it

HousingWire's Morning Radar provides a look at what's trending across media outlets nationwide.


"Housing: An awakening....The U.S. housing market is becoming less of a headwind on the nation's economic recovery. For the first time since 2005, investment in residential real estate contributed to U.S. economic output for the past three quarters..... 


But wait. A conundrum exists.  The Wall Street Journal also says that rising mortgage rates as a result of stronger economic sentiment could be a danger to the recovery. If rates continue to rise toward 4.5%, housing affordability will fall along with refinancing activity, which acts as an economic stimulus. 


You're out of here.  JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America are cutting senior mortgage traders and salesmen amid a decline in the asset-backed securities market, people with knowledge of the moves said."

Baton Rouge Real Estate Looking Up (Guest Post by Glenda Daughety)

Baton Rouge Real Estate Looking Up (Guest Post by Glenda Daughety) | Baton Rouge Real Estate News | Scoop.it

Baton Rouge real estate is looking up. February sales data is in, displaying an uptick in sales and a baseline for optimism. According to a recent article from The Advocate “Home sales show more signs of life in February”, Baton Rouge real estate sales jumped 20% last month.


Low mortgage rates and low homes values are drawing buyers to Baton Rouge homes. Economic news is getting brighter with each month’s data release and as consumer confidence grows so will homes sales. Employment numbers are particularly linked to real estate and as unemployment shrinks real estate will get stronger.

Every Baton Rouge RE Agent May Have A Door Key To HUD Home You Purchased

Every Baton Rouge RE Agent May Have A Door Key To HUD Home You Purchased | Baton Rouge Real Estate News | Scoop.it

Did you know: Every Baton Rouge RE Agent May Have A Door Key To HUD Home You Purchased In The Past?  DID YOU RE-KEY THAT HUD HOME AFTER PURCHASE?

 

Collier Swecker video blogs about how any home purchasers who have purchased a HUD foreclosure home in the last 15 years and who have not changed the locks from the time that they bought the home are at risk for anyone who has or has had a real estate license coming straight in the front door with the universal "HUD" keys that are used on all HUD foreclosure properties. Most home buyers change their locks when they buy a new home, but some put off till another day, the rather tedious and expensive task of re-keying their home. By not re-keying or changing the locks, you are essentially sharing your home's key with thousands of Realtors both past and present. Just thought some of you HUD home buyers would want to know!

Via The Advocate Newspaper, Chad Calder: "New home construction in the three-parish area fell 15 percent last year, as low demand and tight credit dampened building activity for yet another year since the nation’s financial crisis. Still local builders are hopeful 2012 will level off somewhat as the economy begins to show signs of life and home sales gain traction."......
