International Buyers Shot Up 8.5% to $59 Billion in Sales

A report released this week by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) showed that international buyers purchased $59 billion worth of U.S. residential properties from April 2021-March 2022, up 8.5% from the previous year and breaking a three-year streak of declines. The 98,600 existing homes sold - the lowest since NAR tracking began in 2009 - were down 7.9% from the previous year. In terms of overall dollar volume, rising foreign buyer purchase prices offset the annual decline in homes sold.

"Property in the US is seen as a safe investment for international buyers who are looking to protect their assets," said Dawn Pfaff, President of My State MLS. "Even if there is a recession here, the United States is still a safe haven because of property rights protections."

3 Ways to Help Struggling Residents Stay in Their Homes

During the pandemic, emergency rental aid helped keep millions of people in their homes. This is thanks to a federal program that allocated $46 billion. The federal program is running out of money and shutting down in some places. But, as rents and inflation continue to increase, this will cause eviction notices to soar.

There are still resources that can help you stay in your home more than two years after the pandemic hit the United States.

Plus, My State MLS created and launched a state-by-state Financial Assistance Directory of federal, state, and local programs to offer assistance to residents who need help staying in the place they are currently living or find and pay for a new place to call home.

Researchers: Rising Interest Rates Not Likely to Give Renters Relief

Better Supply-Demand Balance is Key to More Moderate Rents

Crushing rent increases remain the norm across Florida and beyond, and the Federal Reserve's recent interest rate hike is unlikely to improve the landscape for cash-strapped renters, according to researchers at Florida Atlantic University and two other schools.

The Waller Weeks & Johnson Rental Index, a collaboration started this year by FAU, The University of Alabama and Florida Gulf Coast University, finds that renters are paying significantly more than expected based on historical trends in individual markets.

Sales of Newly Built Homes Tumbled Over 16% in April While Prices Soared

Sales of newly built homes dropped 16.6% in April from March, far more than expected, and were down 26.9% from April 2021, according to the U.S. Census.The annualized rate came in at 591,000 units, seasonally adjusted. Analysts had been expecting 750,000. March's read was also revised lower.

That is the slowest sales pace since April 2020, when everything shut down at the start of the Covid pandemic. Sales surged quickly after that, as Americans sought bigger homes with outdoor spaces for quarantining.

April Housing Report: Inventory Readies to Rebound

In April, the U.S. supply of active listings posted the smallest year-over-year decline (-12.2%) since the end of 2019, led by gains in the share of mid-sized homesNew data suggests that the U.S. housing supply is readying to rebound, as active listings posted the smallest year-over-year declines (-12.2%) since December 2019, according to the Realtor.com® Monthly Housing Trends Report released today. Inventory improvements were led by increases in the share of mid-sized homes, which could mean more listings available to families looking to upgrade from their starter homes - which could, in turn, potentially result in an uptick in first-time buying options.

New Study Reveals Florida Dominates List of 25 Most Overvalued U.S. Rental Markets

Researchers: Shortage of Units Will Lead to Real Estate 'Reckoning' 

Rental rates for homes and apartments have spiked across the nation, and Florida is the center of the surge, according to a new study from Florida Atlantic University and two other schools. The researchers ranked the 25 most overvalued U.S. rental markets, and the first five all are in the Sunshine State.

South Florida heads the list, with renters in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties paying an average $2,832 a month - 21.75 percent above what they should be paying, based on the area's long-term leasing trends.

Rents are rising everywhere. See how much prices are up in your area.

Nationally, rents rose a record 11.3 percent last year, according to real estate research firm CoStar Group. That fast pace of growth remained elevated in the first months of 2022, as many parts of the country continued to notch double-digit jumps in rent prices.

"A supply-demand mismatch is making rents unaffordable," said Dennis Shea, executive director of the J. Ronald Terwilliger Center for Housing Policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center. "The lowest-income families are being hardest hit by rising rents and a lack of supply."

Strong Demand for Homes Bolsters Prices, Forcing Buyers Across the Country to Overpay

FAU Economist: Some Properties Won't Fetch Enough Money in Resales

Home prices in the overwhelming majority of the nation's largest housing markets continue to rise despite the Federal Reserve's move to raise mortgage rates in hopes of curtailing runaway demand, according to researchers at Florida Atlantic University and Florida International University.

In 99 of the 100 markets surveyed, rising prices are forcing buyers to pay higher premiums - the amount of money above what they should be spending based on past pricing trends. The larger the premium, the more overvalued a market is.

"The bill says to the broker that you have to notify the prospective client your position on at least three things: identification, pre-qualification, and exclusive right to represent. The statute doesn't prescribe how you have to treat those things, whether you require them or not. It says that you have to provide that statement that says you are going to require them or not and that you have to put the SOP on a public facing website, [mobile device application they maintain], and posted in your offices."
