Although existing-homes declined slightly during the month of September, the national median home price has recorded its seventh consecutive monthly increase, according to a recent report by the National Association of REALTORS (NAR). Existing-home sales, which include recently purchased single family, townhomes, condominiums, and co-ops, are on pace to reach 4.75 million units sold for 2012, an 11 percent increase over August 2011 levels.
The trend is positive, says Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist. “Despite occasional month-to-month setbacks, we’re experiencing a genuine recovery,” he said. “More people are attempting to buy homes than are able to qualify for mortgages, and recent price increases are not deterring buyer interest. Rather, inventory shortages are limiting sales, notably in parts of the West.”
Mortgage giant Freddie Mac reported a national commitment rate for 30-year, conventional fixed-rate mortgages dropped to a record low in September. Rates were averaging 3.47 percent, down over 1.5 percent from the same time a year ago.
Reduced inventory figures prominently sustained growth. “The shrinkage in housing supply is supporting ongoing price growth, a pattern that could accelerate unless home builders robustly ramp up production,” Yun said.
