‘Boomerang Buyers’ to Make Strong Comeback This Year

DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | WEDNESDAY, APRIL 03, 2013

Home owners who once lost their homes to foreclosure and short sales — known as “boomerang buyers” — are becoming a growing force of home buyers again.

“Their time out of the market may be shorter than many Americans might expect,” USA Todayreports. “People who go through foreclosure can rebuild credit records and qualify for home loans again in three to seven years if they manage their finances well.”

More than 4.7 million home owners are estimated to have lost their home to foreclosures or short sales since 2007. Seventy percent of them will likely return to home ownership within eight years of their short sale or foreclosure, according to estimates by John Burns Real Estate Consulting. And with the housing downturn starting about six years ago, this could be the first big year for boomerang buyers. Boomerang buyers could possibly account for 10 percent of home sales this year, Burns estimates.

His firm projects that boomerang buyers who lost homes in 2007 through 2012 will number 500,000 a year in 2013 through 2016.

And with home prices still relatively low and mortgage rates hovering at record lows, some boomerang buyers may even qualify for a mortgage that is cheaper than their previous one.

For example, one former home owner in Las Vegas, Dave Peterson, says he lost his home in foreclosure and then declared bankruptcy when he hit financial hardship a few years ago. But last year, he was able to buy a $280,000 home with his wife — bigger than the home they originally owned and lost to foreclosure. Peterson was able to get a 3.74 percent, 30-year fixed-rate mortgage with no money down through the Department of Veterans Affairs, so his monthly mortgage payments are $1,600 — compared to $3,000 for the smaller home he lost to foreclosure.

Good News for Homeowners, Buyers need to move QUICKLY!

Big Predictions for Housing for Next 2 Years

DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | FRIDAY, MARCH 29, 2013

Home sales are projected to post some big gains in the next two years, according to Fannie Mae’s latest monthly economic outlook.

Fannie Mae economists predict that existing-home sales will rise by 10.5 percent this year, and by 6.2 percent in 2014. The economists made even bolder projections for new single-family home sales — growing 15.1 percent this year and 44.1 percent in 2014.

“We expect home prices to firm further amid a durable housing recovery, continuing to boost household net worth, gradually diminishing the population of underwater borrowers, and reducing incentive for strategic defaults,” according to Fannie Mae’s report.

Fannie Mae projects that mortgage rates will stay low by historical averages this year, but the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage will rise from an average of 3.5 percent during the first quarter to an average of 4 percent during the final three months of 2013. During the fourth quarter of 2014, mortgage rates are projected to tick up to a 4.5 percent average.

Mortgage applications for purchases are projected to increase by 16.8 percent this year and by 17.1 percent in 2014. However, a decline in applications for refinancings will likely cause mortgage originations to be down 14.5 percent this year and by 31.4 percent in 2014, Fannie economists predict.
