Los compradores de casa por primera vez llevan la delantera en mayo
El último informe de las ventas de las casas ya existentes de La Asociación Nacional de Realtors (NAR) reveló que los compradores de casa por primera vez conforman el 32 % de todas las ventas en el mes de mayo; convirtiéndose en el porcentaje más alto desde septiembre de 2012 y subió del 27 % en la misma época del año pasado.
NAR’s Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun, cited “strong job gains among young adults, less expensive mortgage insurance and lenders offering low down payment programs,” as contributing factors to the increase in first-time buyers.
Existing-home sales rose 5.1% to a seasonally adjusted rate of 5.35 million. Total housing inventory for sale remains under the 6.0 months needed for a historically normal market at a 5.1 month supply.
Homes sold quickly in May, as 45% of homes sold in less than a month. May also marked the 39th consecutive month of year-over-year price gains as the median existing home price rose 7.9% above May 2014 to $228,700.
Below is a chart showing the breakdown of price increases by region:
Yun went on to say,
«Solid sales gains were seen throughout the country in May as more homeowners listed their home for sale and therefore provided greater choices for buyers.»
“However, overall supply still remains tight, homes are selling fast and price growth in many markets continues to teeter at or near double-digit appreciation. Without solid gains in new home construction, prices will likely stay elevated — even with higher mortgage rates above 4 percent.»
“More first-time buyers are expected to enter the market in coming months, but the overall share climbing higher will depend on how fast rates and prices rise.»
