 Did you know there’s a perfect month of the year to sell your home?

This particular ATTOM study looked at some 14.7 million home sales that took place from 2011 to 2017. What they uncovered in that data is an idea of

The Daytona area condo market continued to turn the corner in April, with inventory levels up in both monthly and annual comparisons. 

An analysis of Daytona Beach Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data by Wyse Home Team Realty showed the number of available units for sale during the month of April higher than the number of listings offered in April 2017.

How rising interest rates and home prices could affect buyers this year

 

 

Does it feel like homes are getting less affordable?

They are.

Housing affordability fell by a whopping 5 percent in the first quarter of 2018, according to the latest Housing and Mortgage Market Review from Arch Mortgage Insurance.

And things could get 10-15 percent WORSE as the year progresses, the report said.

The report looks at how changes in mortgage rates, interest rates, and home prices affect the average buyer’s monthly payments.

The basic idea of how it plays out is that when home prices rise by a percentage, say 5%, then buyers can expect their monthly house payments to rise by about the same amount.

But when interest rates rise, it’s a

Millions were forced to file bankruptcy in search of a fresh start. In fact, more than 1.4 million people filed for bankruptcy in 2009 alone. But that was just the beginning. Over the next several years, there was a steady flow of bankruptcy filings as more jobs were lost and more homes went into foreclosure.  And for some, the effects were delayed. They were able to keep afloat while others fell apart financially, only to fall apart themselves financially just as the economy was beginning to turn around. 

If you're one of those folks who petitioned the court for a fresh financial start,
