Trends are Stable but We Have a Long Way to Go

The housing market remains stable, yet at low levels with plenty of room for improvement, according to Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors. Yun commented on the current trends, “Existing-home sales have bounced around this year, staying relatively close to the current level in most months. The irony is affordability conditions have improved to historic highs and more  creditworthy borrowers are trying to purchase homes, but the share of contract failures is double the level of September 2010. Even so, the volume of successful buyers is higher than a year ago and is remaining fairly stable – this speaks to an unfulfilled demand” (www.realtor.org).
