Despite only three homes closing this week in Westfield, Fanwood and Scotch Plains, the contract purchases started to exceed last year's. Home sales have had the highest number since December 2015. For the year of 2016 the area housing demand increased 15 percent, still reeling the benefit of lower mortgage rates. This increase is largely due to the millennials beginning to transition from renter to homeownership and the trade down purchases from the empty nesters.

With the mortgage rates increasing there still are relaxed lending standards and reduction in the down payment. If the supply of homes being offered for sale continues to decline: right now there are five months of inventory, translating to a seller’s market: an increase in appreciation results. With the looming rate increase from the Fed that could curb the price appreciation and slow purchase contracts or any new challenges in the housing market in our area. In spite of that I believe our homes sales will continue to be solid and robust. There is another bigger question hanging over the Housing market: the path of regulatory reform. If there are any big changes in the 2010 Dodd-Frank Law that  could open up lending to far more Buyers.

So, thinking of buying? It’s a good time. Thinking of selling? It’s a good time.

The Day After

Some years ago, the United Nations held the International Summit on Sustainable Development, here in Johannesburg. The Summit was a great success. One wonders, though, whether all the wonderful decisions and resolutions that were adopted were ever implemented. In other words, were they themselves sustainable?

Good ideas and worthwhile projects are suggested regularly. The question is, do they ...
