College debt affecting housing market

College debt is having a compounding effect on how millennials perceive and plan for home ownership.

Eighty-three percent of millennials in a recently released report by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) say they are delaying their home-buying plans by a median seven years as a result of their student loan debt. Twenty percent of the millennials surveyed in the study are homeowners; 80 percent are not. The typical millennial homeowner is burdened by $41,200 in student debt, and earning $38,800 annually.

Home ownership is not the only casualty of student debt—millennials are also postponing career changes, children, marriage and retirement savings, the study shows.

“The tens of thousands of dollars many millennials needed to borrow to earn a college degree have come at a financial and emotional cost that’s influencing millennials’ housing choices and other major life decisions,” says Lawrence Yun, chief economist at NAR. “Sales to first-time buyers have been underwhelming for several years now, and this survey indicates student debt is a big part of the blame. Even a large majority of older millennials and those with higher incomes say they’re being forced to delay home ownership because they can’t save for a down payment and don’t feel financially secure enough to buy.

“A scenario where only those with minimal or no student debt can afford to buy a home and save for retirement is not an ideal situation and is one that weakens the economy and contributes to widening inequality,” Yun says.

Millennial homeowners are doubly pressured, unable to sell and trade-up due to their student debt. At the entry level, the inability to move keeps valuable inventory off-market, worsening already scarce supply in the tier.
“Millennial homeowners who can’t afford to trade up because of their student debt end up staying put, which slows the turnover in the housing market and exacerbates the low supply levels and affordability pressures for those trying to buy their first home,” says Yun.
Combating the issue comes down to education. Many millennials are in the dark about college costs—in fact, the study shows only 20 percent have a big-picture understanding of the expenses related to education.

“REALTORS® are actively working with consumers and policy leaders to address the growing burden student debt is having on home ownership,” says NAR President Bill Brown. “We support efforts that promote education and simplify the student borrowing process, as well as underwriting measures that make it easier for home buyers carrying student loan debt to qualify for a mortgage.”

The study was conducted in conjunction with American Student Assistance (ASA), a non-profit guarantor.
“Student debt is a reality for the majority of students attending colleges and universities across our country,” says Jean Eddy, president and CEO of ASA. “We cannot allow educational debt to hold back whole generations from the financial milestones that underpin the American Dream, like home ownership. The results of this study reinforce the need for solutions that both reduce education debt levels for future students, and enable current borrowers to make that debt manageable, so they don’t have to put the rest of their financial goals on hold.”

Latest News from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Shows Existing Home Sales Are At Their Highest Levels Since 2007



Existing-home sales increased in August and reached the highest level in six-and-a-half years, while the median price shows nine consecutive months of double-digit year-over-year increases, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

Total existing home sales, which include completed transactions for single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, and co-ops, went up by 1.7% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.48 million units in August from that of 5.39 million units in July. This is also 13.2% higher than the 4.84 million units sold in August 2012, one year prior to August 2013.

Sales are at the highest pace since February 2007, when they hit 5.79 million, and have remained above year-ago levels for the past 26 months.

According to Lawrence Yun, the chief economist for NAR, “rising mortgage interest rates pushed more buyers to close deals, but monthly sales are likely to be uneven in the months ahead from several market frictions.” These could include decreasing existing home inventories, as well as more restrictive lending standards, along with the potential for higher interest rates in the long-term.

In addition, while it is unclear at this point, the ongoing government shutdown could also pose potential longer-term complications from agencies, such as FHA (Federal Housing Administration), the IRS, and others, being at least partially shutdown or closed all together. External pressures such as these also could have a longer-term impact on the market itself.

However, according to NAR President Gary Thomas, “As the equity position of most homeowners continues to improve, some who have been on the sidelines will list their home for sale,” he said. “Most of those owners also will be buying another home, but higher levels of new home construction going into 2014, combined with some reduction in demand from less favorable affordability conditions, will help to moderate price growth to more sustainable levels.”

What does this all mean for you? Right now, there are still many great properties available in the Great Smoky Mountains real market, and if you are interested in buying a new home, today is the best time for you to realize your dreams of home ownership.

Total Existing Home Sales in July Nationally on the Rise

Home Prices Rise

As a further sign of continued gradual growth in the housing market, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently announced that existing-home sales rose strongly in July, with the median price maintaining double-digit year-over-year increases.

According to the latest NAR report regarding July’s trends, total existing home sales  increased 6.5 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.39 million in July from a downwardly revised 5.06 million in June, and are 17.2 percent above the 4.60 million-unit pace in July 2012; sales have remained above year-ago levels for 25 months.

In addition, Freddie Mac also recently indicated that the national average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate mortgage rose to 4.37 percent in July from 4.07 percent in June, and is the highest since July 2011 when it was 4.55 percent; the rate was 3.55 percent in July 2012.

Furthermore, the national median existing home price for all housing types was $213,500 in July, which is 13.7 percent above July 2012. This marks 17 consecutive months of year-over-year price increases, which last occurred from January 2005 to May 2006. Also, based on the NAR findings, Total housing inventory at the end of July rose 5.6 percent to 2.28 million existing homes available for sale, which represents a 5.1-month supply at the current sales pace, unchanged from June. Listed inventory is also now 5.0 percent below a year ago, when there was a 6.3-month supply.

Therefore, based on the findings of the NAR for July in 2013, we foresee that home prices will continue their gradual rise, in spite of recent interest rate increases, and that housing inventories continue to slowly decrease, thereby raising the home prices as demand remains steady or increases.

There are still many great deals on homes available in the Great Smoky Mountain market, and today is a good time to look for the many properties that are available right now.  If you have thought about purchasing a property in the Great Smoky Mountain region, now is the time to start looking.

The National Real Estate Market Continues to Hold Steady Halfway Through 2013

Housing Recovery


As we now reach the halfway point in 2013, there are some very noteworthy trends that are emerging nationally that continue to show a steady real estate market nationally. As we continue into 2013, here are some of the trends that are now emerging, and will have a noteworthy impact on real estate nationally, as well as locally.

According to the latest news from CoreLogic, the first indicator of note is that U.S. home prices have jumped 12.2% in May 2013 from a year ago, the most in seven years. The increase suggests the general national housing recovery is relatvively steady, and is, in fact, slowly strengthening. In addition, on average, national residential home prices rose 2.6% in May 2013 from April 2013, which is the 15th straight month-over-month increase, as measured. In many states, including Tennessee, home prices are gradually increasing and showing a generally positive increase.

The other notable indicator shows us that, according the U.S. Commerce Department, there was an increase in home construction, by 6.8%, in terms of overall pace of homes being constructed, in May 2013, as opposed to 14.8% decline in home construction in April 2013. Based on this, while not dramatically increasing, home construction is also holding steady and even gradually increasing, as well as with home prices.

Furthermore, according to, May of 2013 saw median list home prices were 2.10 percent higher than April 2013 home prices. This reflected a general and gradual trend towards higher home prices as a whole, and we see that the home prices are reflecting a steady national trend towards higher home prices, as well as greater consumer demand for homes.

The basic reasons for these trends are many, but generally can be attributed to greater demand, limited numbers of homes for sale, and fewer foreclosures, as well as steady hiring in the job market and relatively low mortgage rates. Based on this data, we foresee a gradual continuation of these national trends, especially with respect to home prices and available housing inventories.

There are still many great deals on homes available as we see home prices gradually rising nationally, especially in the Great Smoky Mountain market. If you have thought about purchasing a property in the Great Smoky Mountain region, now is the time to start looking.

Owning A Home And The American Dream

National Association of REALTORS President, Moe Veissi, said “Homeownership is an investment in our future, but it’s also a gateway to our past. The homes of our country’s founders offer insights into their characters and values and reflect the spirits of their owners, just as our homes do for us today”.  As the Fourth of July steadily approaches we turn our thoughts to fireworks, parades and other traditions that are carried out each year in celebration of Independence Day. Today we would like to reflect on how homeownership has played a part in the history of our nation and the phrase “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.

The American Dream is a set of ideals which allows everyone the opportunity for prosperity and success according to their abilities and hard work. From early settlements in America forward to today, owning a home has been seen as a building block in achieving the height of these ideals. Certainly owning your own home creates freedom and independence simply by having a place to call your own. Along with pride of ownership you gain the freedom to choose the elements that go in to making your house a home. Economic changes have delayed this dream for many but surveys show most Americans still wish to own their own home. In a recent National Housing Survey from Fannie Mae we see that Americans still view owning a home as a positive thing. 64% of those surveyed said that if they were going to move they would be more likely to rent rather than buy. Why? Although modern day America is much different than it was in the 1800’s our ideals have remained fairly constant. A large number of those surveyed cited control over what you do with your living space, freedom to choose a community where people share your values and motivation to become a better citizen as top reasons they aspire to owning their own home.

Owning a home has numerous benefits not only to the owner but to the entire nation. Many have quoted Abraham Lincoln as saying, “The strength of a nation lies in the homes of its people”. This simple truth is still valid today. Owning a home provides security and stability as well as enhances communities. It encourages participation in schools, government and community because owners have a vested interest in improving their homes and neighborhoods. All of these things work to strengthen the social fabric of the nation. The overall value to the nation’s economy from increased homeownership is priceless.

The dream of homeownership has not changed in America. With the low interest rates that are currently available housing affordability is at an all time high making the American Dream obtainable for more and more citizens. We wish everyone a happy Fourth of July and as you are celebrating our nation’s independence we hope that you will take a moment to consider how much owning your own home could add to your own pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. There are numerous available and we are here to help through every step of your journey towards being a homeowner.

The Housing Market Sees Best First Quarter In Five Years

Existing home sales rose 3.4 percent over last year in April and the National Association of REALTORS has reported that the first quarter of 2012 has been the strongest for home sales since 2007. Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist said “It is no longer just the investors who are taking advantage of high affordability conditions. A return of normal home buying for occupancy is helping home sales across all price points and now the recovery appears to be extending to home prices.”

We believe that there are many factors contributing to improving conditions. We are seeing all time low mortgage rates with Freddie Mac reporting the national average rate for a 30 year, fixed rate, conventional mortgage at 3.91 percent in April. With that trend, first-time buyers rose to 35% of purchasers in April. As confidence in the market continues to rise we will see even more improvement.

NAR President, Moe Veissi, highlights how important it is for home buyers to look into financing at the early stages of searching for a home stating, “With the tight lending environment it’s a good idea to consult with a REALTOR about mortgages and program options in your area and tips for boosting your credit score well in advance of making an offer on a home.” Being pre-approved is one of the strongest negotiation tools a buyer can have on their side. You may find out more about the process in a previous post titled

For sellers, we see a lowering percentage of foreclosures and distressed homes on the market which is helping home prices. Yun said, “We now have broad shortages of lower priced homes in much of the country, with very tight supply in Western states for homes through the middle price ranges. This is good news for many sellers who wish to list now or for those waiting for prices to improve.” In April, the median existing single family home price was up 10.4% from April of 2011 nationally. In the South, existing home sales rose 3.5% in April and was 6.5% higher than a year ago with the median price raising 8% from April of 2011.

As we move forward further into 2012 with an eye on 2013 economists predict that conditions will continue to improve. As a buyer, now may be just the right time to start searching for your perfect Smoky Mountain home. With plenty of inventory to choose from and favorable lending rates, why not stop by our and see what the market has to offer?

The Forecast Calls For An Improving Housing Market

As we have mentioned in previous articles, this year has remained steadily busy and we are seeing higher home sales prices than have been evident in quite some time. We see the Gatlinburg and Sevier County markets moving steadily and economists are pointing to improvement in the national real estate market as well. We would like to apologize for not providing the monthly market statistics for March. Our local MLS system is experiencing technical difficulties and is not reporting accurate numbers. We hope this issue can be remedied soon. In the meantime we would like to share a little bit about what is going on overall in the real estate market.

In a recent , Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist, said the recovery is in the process of settling into a higher level of home sales. Existing home sales were slightly down in March but are still 5.2% above the same period in 2011. The National Association of REALTORS reports that inventory has tightened and home prices continue to show signs of stabilizing. Mr. Yun stated, “The recovery is happening though not at a breakout pace, but we have seen nine consecutive months of year-over-year sales increases. He went on to say, “Existing home sales are moving up and down in a fairly narrow range that is well above the level of activity during the first half of last year. With job growth, low interest rates, bargain home prices and an improving economy, the pent-up demand is coming to market and we expect housing to be notably better this year.”

Nationally, the median existing home price for all housing types was just under $164,000 in March. Short sales and foreclosures made up 29% of March sales compared with 40% in March of 2011. In the South, existing home sales are reported at 3.6 percent higher than one year ago.

Freddie Mac reports that the national average commitment rate for a 30 year, conventional, fixed rate mortgage was 3.95 percent in March, down from 4.84 percent in March of 2011. This makes financing very attractive for homebuyers and is opening up options for many.

All of this points to a steady move towards a positive outcome for the 2012 real estate market. Locally we are seeing a shift in buying patterns with more buyers present in the market and able to procure financing. Now is the time to enter the market, take advantage of extremely low mortgage rates and great housing deals available in inventory. With many financing options it may be a prime time to speak with a lender, see what is available and get pre-approved. Having a pre-approval in hand will put you in a great position when you find your “Smoky Mountain Dream”. There is a lot to choose from, start at our and view all that the Great Smoky Mountains have to offer.

Homes For Sale In Gatlinburg Could Be In A Warm Market

This blog works to provide relevant data on Smoky Mountain homes  and how that ties to the overall U.S. real estate market. The National Association Of Realtors reported in late September of this year that August 2011 pending home sales had declined nationally. However, the pending home sales index remains above August of 2010. The PHSI is a future oriented market indicator. It focuses upon signed home sales contracts which are not officially closed. These typically close in 1-2 months. Our interest is not centered exclusively upon this news but on material related to this story.

Four regions comprise the PHSI. Pending home sales here in the South was the only region across the country to have an increase in August 2011. NAR Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun feels that Hurricane Irene certainly impacted home sales in some parts of the nation. In addition, Mr. Yun is concerned that overly strict mortgage underwriting standards are rejecting a sizable number of financially qualified potential home buyers. The Chief Economist is hopeful that standards will be relaxed to allow more qualified buyers to enter the market.

For some time , we have advised our blog readers to get pre-approved for financing. This simplifies the home buying process by eliminating some of the guesswork. Go on our website  today to get started finding your dream property in the Tennessee Smokies.

Have you considered your Gatlinburg Home for Sale?

There can be challenges for selling mountain homes or other real estate.  This week’s blog will share 7 tips for a better home closing.  The source for this material came    through the National Association of Realtors.  This valuable Trade Association shares money saving tips that benefit both buyers and sellers.  Through the years, the NAR has seen people lose out on potential savings because they felt they were done in the property sales process.  Often the entire process of selling one home and buying another can leave one baffled by all the steps that are required.  These following 7 tips could save you additional money at closing time.

Tip #1: Avoid potential hassles by contacting all utility and service providers for; shut off, or transfer to your new address on the official closing date.  Make sure automatic scheduling of; fuel oil, propane, or other items is not an unintended gift for the new buyers of your old home.  Also be sure your home insurance ends at closing, and refunds of any prepaid premium are paid to you.

Tip #2: Notify important contacts of your change of address, in advance of the closing date.  Typically you file post office changes of address paperwork, 2-4 weeks before closing.  Obviously, credit card companies, subscription personnel of publications, brokers and financial institutions, as well as friends and families should be informed of the date of the change and new address.

Tip #3: Allow enough time to select a good moving company.  If your move is long distance, evaluate what should be moved.  Weight is a critical factor.  Also, contact your insurance agent to determine the extent of coverage, during the move.

Tip #4: Double check the math on your HUD-1 Settlement Statement, the day before the closing.  Everyone is human, mistakes can occur.  Make sure your statement is correct.

Tip #5: Along with #4 review all charges on your settlement statement.  Were all discounts or promises included? Were critical deal closers omitted?  Beware of statement omissions that could set you up for legal liability later on.

Tip #6: Make sure the settlement company credits you for prepaid expenses.  These may include; property taxes, homeowner association fees, partial tanks of fuel, etc.

Tip #7; Check all accounts to be sure none of your money is being held in escrow.  It is best to get your money right away, rather than to forget about it, or have it lose value over time.
