Home Prices: The Difference 5 Years Makes

Home Prices: The Difference 5 Years Makes | Keeping Current Matters

CoreLogic recently released their Home Price Index ReportOne of the key indicators used in the report to determine the health of the housing market was home price appreciation. CoreLogic focused on appreciation from July 2013 to July 2018 to show how prices over the last five years have fared.

The graph below was created to show the 5-year change in price from July 2013 to July 2018 by price range.

Home Prices: The Difference 5 Years Makes | Keeping Current Matters

As you can see in the graph, the highest price appreciation occurred in the lowest price range with 48% growth, while the highest priced homes appreciated by 25%. This has been greatly fueled by the lack of inventory of homes available at the lower price ranges and high demand from first-time buyers looking to enter the market.

Where were prices expected to go?

Every quarter, Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over 100 economists, real estate experts, and investment and market strategists and asks them to project how residential home prices will appreciate over the next five years for their Home Price Expectation Survey (HPES).

According to the Q3 2014 survey results, national homes prices were projected to increase cumulatively by 19.5% by December 2018. The bulls of the group predicted home prices to rise by 27.8%, while the more cautious bears predicted an appreciation of 11.2%.

Where are prices headed in the next 5 years?

Data from the most recent HPES shows that home prices are expected to increase by 20.0% over the next 5 years. The bulls of the group predict home prices to rise by 31.2%, while the more cautious bears predict an appreciation of 9.3%.

Bottom Line

Every day, thousands of homeowners regain positive equity in their homes. Some homeowners are now experiencing values even greater than those before the Great Recession. If you’re wondering if you have enough equity to sell your house and move on to your dream home, contact a local real estate professional who can help!

1. What does a mortgage broker do?

A professional mortgage broker originates, negotiates, and processes residential mortgage loans on behalf of their clients.

2. What are the benefits of using a mortgage broker?

A mortgage broker represents your interests rather than the interests of a lending institution. They act not only as your loan officer, but as a knowledgeable consultant and problem solver. Mortgage brokers have access to a wide range of mortgage products, a broker is able to offer you the greatest value in terms of interest rate, repayment amounts, and loan products. Mortgage brokers will interview you to identify your needs and your short and long term goals. Many situations demand more than the simple use of a 30 year, 15 year, or adjustable rate mortgage (ARM), so innovative mortgage strategies and sophisticated solutions are the advantage of working with an experienced mortgage broker.

3. How do I ensure that I've chosen the right mortgage broker?

The greater the broker's experience and lender network, the better your opportunity to obtain the loan product and the interest rate that best suits your needs. Be sure to read their reviews online and see how long they have been in the business before selecting your broker.

4. What documents should I be prepared with when meeting with a mortgage broker?

A mortgage broker will need to review all your financial information, such as: w2's, tax returns, paystubs, bank statements, as well as various other documents that pertain to your individual circumstances.

5. What kinds of loans are available?

A mortgage broker most likely has access to every product the market has to offer. Most mortgage brokers are approved with multiple lenders to ensure they can offer every product available.

a. What are major differences to be aware of?

With a mortgage broker, you only need one application, rather than completing forms for each individual lender. Your mortgage broker can provide a formal comparison of any loans recommended, guiding you to the information that accurately portrays cost differences, with current rates, points, and closing costs for each loan reflected

6. Costs associated with working with a mortgage broker over a bank?

A mortgage broker is offered loans on a wholesale basis from lenders, and therefore can offer the best rates available in the market, typically making the total loan cost lower for the client.

7. How long does the process take from start to closing on a home?

An "A paper" borrower with good credit can close as fast at 15-21 days.

8. What setbacks should I be aware of?

The market is hot right now so be prepared to compete with other buyers in the marketplace and come in with a strong offer.

9. Are there any incentives for first time buyers? (Lower down payment percentage, etc.)

Yes, there are several down payment assistance programs available for first time home buyers. Some programs will cover your down payment and closing costs.

10. Is there anything else I should be considering when choosing a broker and committing to a loan?

My honest advice would be to get more than one quote. More often than not, borrowers are not shopping around, they are going with the lender that their realtor refers to them and not shopping at all. Get two or three quotes before making a decision.
