What’s Impacting Falling Sales?

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Existing-Homes NAR Sales 2019-07-24 Seth Welborn According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), existing-home sales fell by 1.7% in June month-over-month, to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.27 million. Additionally, half of the major U.S. regions recorded minor sales jumps while the other half experienced greater declines.“Home sales are running at a pace similar to 2015 levels – even with exceptionally low mortgage rates, a record number of jobs and a record high net worth in the country,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist. According to Yun, the nation is in the midst of a housing shortage and much more inventory is needed. “Imbalance persists for mid-to-lower priced homes with solid demand and insufficient supply, which is consequently pushing up home prices,” he said.Yun also states that other factors may be contributing to low sales. “Either a strong pent-up demand will show in the upcoming months, or there is a lack of confidence that is keeping buyers from this major expenditure,” said Yun. “It’s too soon to know how much of a pullback is related to the reduction in the homeowner tax incentive.”Housing inventory ticked up slightly month-over-month in June, but is unchanged from the level of one year ago. By region, existing-home sales rose slightly in the Northeast and Midwest but decreased in the South and West, but sales were still lower than a year ago across all regions. Median home prices rose in all regions, with the highest gains in the Midwest and South. While existing home sales fell, the Census Bureau reports that sales of new single‐family houses increased by 7% in June month-over-month, and increased by 4.5% year-over-year.According to Freddie Mac, the average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate mortgage decreased to 3.80% in June, down from 4.07% in May. The average commitment rate across all of 2018 was 4.54%.“Historically, these rates are incredibly attractive,” said NAR President John Smaby. “Securing and locking in on a mortgage now – given the current, favorable conditions – is a decision that will pay off for years to come.” Tagged with: Existing-Homes NAR Sales Previous: Carson: Regulations are “Huge Barriers” to Affordable Housing Next: Single-Family Zoning’s Impact on Climate Change Sign up for DS News Daily July 24, 2019 1,223 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

The Impact of Renters on the Presidential Election

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Related Articles About Author: Seth Welborn Home / Daily Dose / The Impact of Renters on the Presidential Election Renters may have a significant impact on the 2020 presidential election, Apartment List reports. Renters, for example, have decidedly more progressive views on the economy than homeowners, with 70% of renters favor increased spending on aid to the poor, compared to 57% of homeowners. Additionally, in 2016, 46%of renters voted for Bernie Sanders, compared to just 34% of homeowners.“With Sanders now emerging as the clear frontrunner among 2020 Democratic hopefuls, mobilizing the renter vote could secure him the nomination,” Apartment List notes.Additionally, while homeowners are evenly split between Democrats (34.0%), Republicans (35.7%), and Independents (30.3%), renters identify as Democrats at a rate of more than two-to-one.Democratic renters are more “progressive” than homeowners, but only when it comes to the economy. Although the renter population heavily favors Democrats, 39% of renters identify as independents, and their votes have the potential to swing the general election. These independent renters tend to hold progressive views around economic equity that would seem to align them with Democrats.Apartment List suggests that if enter turnout had matched homeowner turnout in 2016, Hilary Clinton would have won the general election. The 2020 elections could be decided by whether or not candidates are able to effectively activate this large untapped voting bloc.Renters could arguably have an even greater impact on the results of the general election. Renters are more likely than homeowners to support an expansion of government services by a 19%age point gap. Similarly, 51% of independent renters support increased spending on aid to the poor, compared to just 34% of independent homeowners. Additionally, incomes have grown fastest at the high end of the income distribution, and middle- and lower-income Americans have been disproportionately squeezed by rapidly rising housing costs.“The data suggest that renters—including those who identify as independents—prioritize issues of economic equity.” Share Save Tagged with: Government President Renters Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: NFIP Issued $400m in Reinsurance Protection Next: CFPB Supreme Court Case Looming Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago March 2, 2020 806 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Impact of Renters on the Presidential Election The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Tech Prediction for 2014: As BYOD Matures, BYOI Is Waiting in the Wings

first_imgThe analyst firm IDC has cleverly delineated the evolution of computing over the past 40+ years into three eras or platforms – the mainframe platform of the 70’s, the client/server platform of the 90’s, and the Big Data, Cloud, Social, and Mobile platform of today.One of the interesting trends of this third platform and the rapid and extensive proliferation of mobile technology that has been one of its hallmarks is the consumerization of IT. Companies are giving employees greater latitude in accessing corporate resources and data via their own personal devices (Bring Your Own Device or BYOD).In 2014, we will begin to see the next wave of the consumerization of IT with the emergence of the consumerization of ID or identity.  Just as employees pushed for the simplicity of a single mobile device for both their personal and professional needs, they are beginning to push for a simpler, yet controlled, system of identification for authorization of personal and professional device usage.We are witnessing the dawn of Bring (and Control) Your Own Identity (BYOI), which will be marked by two developments:Our digital identities will become consolidated, centralized, and secured on our devices and less entrusted to external parties like Facebook and Google.The security industry’s growing adoption of an Intelligence-Driven Security model will mean identity is less a perimeter-based gateway and more a multi-faceted, continuously authenticating process that is more seamlessly integrated within our workflow.As it turns out, BYOD was only the beginning.  Brace yourself for 2014 and BYOI.You can see more of Art’s predictions for 2014 in his end of year letter.—More Predictions for 2014SDx (Software-Defined Everything) by Amitabh Srivastava, President, Advanced Software DivisionA Battle Cry for Protected Storage by Stephen Manley, Chief Technology Officer, Data Protection & Availability DivisionSoftware-Defined in Two Architectures by Josh Kahn, Senior Vice President, Global Solutions MarketingBringing Hadoop to Your Big Data by Bill Richter, President, EMC IsilonA Whole New World by CJ Desai, President, Emerging Technologies DivisionTargeting the Value Office to Transform IT Business by Rick Devenuti, President, Information Intelligence GroupIT’s Ability to Evolve Quickly by Vic Bhagat, Chief Information OfficerService Orientation, Big Data Lakes, & Security Product Rationalization by Tom Roloff, Senior Vice President, EMC Global Serviceslast_img read more
