Investor’s Business Daily Says Single Family Home Sales Are Up
Important single family housing indicators are up significantly, according to the November 19th issue of Investor’s Business Daily. Overall, housing starts totaled over 1 million units in October, a decrease of 2.8% versus September. But that percentage downturn reflects double digit declines only in new construction apartments and multi-families.
Delaware custom home builders on alert as credit rules loosen
The news is all good, however, in the single family class. Single family home starts rose a solid 4.2% in October. This follows an identical 4.2% increase in September from the month before. Overall, single family starts are up 15.4% over the last twelve months. Other indicators of a growing housing market are equally robust. Overall, building permits were up almost 5%, the fastest pace in the last six years. Single family permits are also at a six year high.
The optimism is due in part to cheaper credit—the average 30 year fixed mortgage rate fell a basis point to 4.18%, a sizable drop from the 4.72% at the beginning of 2014—solid job growth, and the Fed’s loosening of credit rules to encourage buyers to finally come out of the shadows. As a result, the Mortgage Bankers Association reported that the mortgage applications index rose just under 5% in the week ended November 14. And as further proof that the single family market is hot, loan demand for buying a home jumped up 11.7%, the largest weekly gain since the summer of 2013.
