  • Higher Appraisal Valuations Stimulating the Housing Market

     - 5/28/2013 2:06:57 AM
    The housing market seems to pass one hurdle after another as it continue on it road to recovery. Late last year, it seemed as though “low-ball” appraisal would curtail real estate sales transaction. Today, data show that more appraisers are valuating homes at higher prices, which allows for more real estate sales transactions to go to the closing table and property to exchange hands.
    After the housing market crashed, it became a buyer’s market, and sellers received unreasonably low offers that were far below the home’s selling price. The importance of getting higher valuation cannot be overestimated.

     - 11/8/2012 12:03:55 AM
    The largest real-estate investment trust (REIT) listed on the New York Stock Exchange, Annaly Capital Management Inc., like other companies that specializes in the purchase of mortgage-backed securities (MBS) are not among the many who celebrate the reelection of Barack Obama as president of the United States.
    REIT refers to firms that have a collection of the real estate related investments. Besides investing in mortgage bonds, REITS may have holdings in commercial real estate, residential properties, and the equities of firms connected with real estate, which include mortgage lenders.

  • Less Competition Adds to Cost of Purchases and Mortgage Refinance

     - 10/23/2012 12:50:31 AM
    For the last few months, some mortgage industry analysts and professionals have stated that historic low mortgage interest rates should be even lower. The publisher of Inside Mortgage Finance Guy D. Cecala states that if lenders had the same profit margin that was in place of a few years ago, a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage at an interest rate of 3.55 percent would be about a ½ point lower or 3.05 percent.
