Forecast Calls for Modest Growth in Home Sales for 2015 December 9, 2014 1,222 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Tagged with: Forecast Home Sales Housing Market IHS Global Insight Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Forecast Home Sales Housing Market IHS Global Insight 2014-12-09 Tory Barringer About Author: Tory Barringer Sign up for DS News Daily Previous: Survey: Mortgage Professionals Believe Business Is Better Than Last Year Next: DS News Webcast: Wednesday 12/10/2014 The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago In keeping with other recently released predictions, the latest housing forecast from market research firm IHS Global Insight calls for modest growth in home sales in 2015 following what’s been a disappointing year.In her outlook, IHS economist Stephanie Karol focuses on two major trends that have shaped the housing market in 2014: low household formation and diverging trends for new versus existing-homes.According to data from the Census Bureau, the country saw the addition of only 467,000 new households between March 2013 and March 2014, well below the post-recession average of about 600,000 per year.While formations are expected to disappoint again in 2014, Karol predicts next year will see the addition of 1.08 million new households, with economic growth driving up the rate of new formations—and demand for new housing.”As a swell in steady employment joins with rising wages, household formation should climb, boosting homeownership rates,” she said.With demand projected to rise, Karol anticipates homebuilders will respond by ramping up housing starts, closing the massive gap between existing single-family inventory and the unsold stock of new homes (which she estimates at nearly 40 to one) and boosting new home sales up to 480,000.Together, both new and existing-home sales are forecast to rise to 5.34 million annually, the result of improving home equity spurring more homeowners to sell.”As a result, inventories have expanded—and families, who are no longer being consistently outbid by investors with plenty of cash on hand, have entered the market in sufficient numbers to stabilize median price growth in the 4–5 percent range,” Karol said. “Overall, the post bubble-landscape will continue into next year, but with slightly smoother terrain.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tory Barringer began his journalism career in early 2011, working as a writer for the University of Texas at Arlington’s student newspaper before joining the DS News team in 2012.

bar has been raised at Atalanta Not only is the provincial squad dreaming of a place in Europe but it has the Champions League within its sights after winning at Napoli 2-0 on Saturday to move to within three points of the third-placed side in Serie A Defender Mattia Caldara again stole the show with a goal in each half Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie was sent off moments before Caldara’s second following two bookings in quick succession It ended Napoli’s run of 14 league matches without defeat Inter Milan can move back level with Atalanta with a win over second-placed Roma on Sunday Victory would make the race for a place in Europe’s elite club competition wide open Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini admitted last week that a win against Napoli would change his side’s objectives and that new aim will be tested in its next two matches against Fiorentina and Inter but he was more cautious after Saturday’s victory “Winning at a place like this allows you to dream big” Gasperini said “If after 25 matches you’re fourth and you’ve beaten Napoli at the San Paolo you’re allowed to believe in yourself” An estimated 5000 fans greeted Atalanta at Bergamo Airport welcoming the team home with flares fireworks and singing “We’re going to win the league” Napoli players and coach Maurizio Sarri did not speak to the media Atalanta’s achievement is even more impressive given that it relies mainly on young homegrown talent Caldara who was signed by Juventus last month but loaned back to Atalanta until 2018 is only 22 while Andrea Petagna Andrea Conti and Alberto Grassi are the same age or younger They all came through the youth ranks together at the Bergamo-based club Petagna scored in a 1-0 win over Napoli this season but since October Napoli had lost only one match at

unprecedented sixth successive title as it moved 10 points clear in Serie A But beating struggling Empoli was more difficult than expected Juventus which had beaten Porto 2-0 midweek in the Champions League rested several key players ahead of the first leg of its Italian Cup semifinal against Napoli on Tuesday but still extended its Serie A record to 30 consecutive home wins It is on course for a treble but Allegri was wary about saying it is closer to one of its objectives after Napoli’s defeat “We still have to get a lot of wins” Allegri said “Roma is strong enough that it can win all its matches We have important matches from here until the international break We have to take it game by game without thinking what will happen in a month” Mario Mandzukic who wasted opportunities in the first half helped to break the deadlock in the 52nd as his header from Juan Cuadrado’s cross was finger-tipped onto the underside of the bar by Lukasz Skorupski but bounced down and over the line The goal was initially credited to Mandzukic but was later changed to an own goal by the Empoli goalkeeper Juventus doubled its tally 13 minutes later when Dani Alves’ cross came through to Alex Sandro and he swivelled before firing it across into the bottom right corner Empoli remained 18th eight points above the relegation zone For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top
