Housing more affordable than ever … for foreign buyers

Housing more affordable than ever … for foreign buyers.

Houston real estate. It’s all good and getting better!

Prudential Gary Greene Blog: “It has been so refreshing for the last few months to review the overall Houston market activity and see all the metrics in a good position and getting better. October single-family home sales were up 9% which helped strengthen an upward trend.

Year-to-date, home sales are up 3% [as was the case in September] with 45,096 MLS recorded home sales. Homes are showing a resiliency in value – the median price of a home in Houston year-to-date is $154,890 and that’s 1% above the median price last year. Probably the most encouraging market stat at the conclusion of October 2011 is pending sales. Pending sales are contracts written that are scheduled to close in the near future.”

Freddie Mac calls for 100 billion in annual multifamily investment

Freddie Mac calls for 100 billion in annual multifamily investment

“The head of Freddie Macs multifamily division projects that the asset class needs 1 trillion in capital over the next decade. That is 100 billion every year earmarked to build 10 million additional apartment units over the next 10 years. David Brickman, senior vice president of the government-sponsored enterprises multifamily division, said financially stressed households will be forced into rental markets, only to compete with new households who are unwilling to buy.”In fact, the decline in the homeownership rate has been sharpest for those household heads under 30 years of age,” writes Brickman in a Freddie Mac blog post. “For every 1% that the current homeownership level of 66% decreases, 1 million individuals become renters.””
