What Qualifies as ‘House Poor’?

What Qualifies as ‘House Poor’?

What Qualifies as ‘House Poor’?

What Qualifies as ‘House Poor’?

The phrase “house poor” describes buyers who’ve bought a home they can’t afford. Most financial advisers say those who spend 30 percent or more of their pretax income on housing costs qualify for such a label. Under that standard, nearly 40 million U.S. households are considered “house poor,” according to the State of the Nation’s Housing 2017 Report from the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University.

Banks use different criteria to determine how much money they’ll lend. Debt-to-income ratios are often used to help lenders compare how much money a person makes with how much he or she owes. Then, lenders figure in a mortgage amount to that equation. Banks typically don’t want borrowers to have a DTI ratio above 36 percent.

However, Debra Neiman—a financial planner at Neiman & Associates Financial Services in Arlington, Mass.—suggests keeping the DTI under 30 percent and cautions buyers to carefully assess what they can truly afford in a mortgage. “If you buy at the top of your price range, you could be putting yourself at risk of becoming house poor,” she says.

Financial experts also say it’s important for home shoppers to figure in other costs of homeownership, too. Besides the mortgage payment, property taxes, and homeowners insurance, buyers also need to figure in general maintenance costs, repairs, utilities, renovations, and even household goods. Make sure you detail for your clients the typical closing costs for your area, especially for first-time buyers.

Higher Loan Limits Coming Jan. 1

Higher Loan Limits Coming Jan. 1

Higher Loan Limits Coming Jan. 1

Higher Loan Limits Coming Jan. 1

Real estate professionals have some good news to share with their clients. On Jan. 1, buyers will be able to get much larger mortgages, whether they’re applying for conventional or FHA-backed loans.

Each year, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac adjust their limits for conventional, conforming loans based on changes in median home prices. For 2018, the companies are increasing loan limits nearly 7 percent, to a maximum loan amount of $453,100. That’s up from $424,100. In the country’s most expensive markets, such as San Francisco and New York, loans can go as high as $679,650. (Special rules apply in Alaska, Hawaii, and some U.S. territories, which are eligible for even higher limits.)

Most home loans are conforming, conventional loans, so the higher limits should help most borrowers. Conventional loans that exceed these limits are considered jumbo loans and aren’t backed by the federal government. That can make them pricier to get.

The Federal Housing Administration is statutorily required to peg its loan limits to Fannie and Freddie’s limits, so it will also start backing higher loans starting Jan. 1. Its loan limits are the same as those of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: $453,100 in most areas and $679,650 in high-cost areas.

No Chill on Showing Traffic in November

No Chill on Showing Traffic in November

Counter to seasonal trends, demand for home showings posted a strong increase in November amid steady consumer confidence and low unemployment, according to the ShowingTime Showing Index, which measures buyer demand based on showing appointments. The index showed an 8 percent year-over-year rise in November.

“Although the residential real estate industry has entered its regular seasonal slowdown period, demand continues to be strong relative to the supply of homes,” says Daniil Cherkasskiy, ShowingTime chief analytics officer. “This trend should continue across the board throughout the holiday season with more buyers looking at listed properties compared to last year.”

ShowingTime’s index tracks demand for active listings throughout the country by tracking ShowingTime products, which facilitate more than 4 million showings each month. The index tracks the average number of appointments received on an active listing during the month.

The Midwest saw the highest year-over-year increase in showings at 9 percent, followed by the Northeast (8.6 percent increase). The South posted a 7.3 percent increase and the West saw a 5.5 percent uptick in showing in November compared to a year ago.

What Buyers Will Give Up for Walkability

What Buyers Will Give Up for Walkability

What Buyers Will Give Up for Walkability

What Buyers Will Give Up for Walkability

Living in areas that are close to shops and restaurants is becoming increasingly attractive for both young and older generations, according to the 2017 National Community and Transportation Preference Survey conducted by American Strategies and Meyers Research on behalf of the National Association of REALTORS®. Researchers polled 3,000 adults from across the United States to find out what they are looking for in a community.

Fifty-three percent of Americans say they prefer to live in a community with homes that have smaller yards but are within easy walking distance of the community’s amenities (rather than homes with large yards where residents have to drive to amenities) according to the survey.

Certain generations show even more fondness for living near amenities. Sixty-two percent of millennials and 55 percent of the silent generation (those born before 1944) say they prefer walkable communities and short commutes, even if it means living in an apartment or townhouse. Meanwhile, Generation X members and baby boomers show a strong preference for the suburbs; 55 percent of them told researchers they have no problem with a longer commute and driving to amenities as long as they can live in a single-family, detached house.

“REALTORS® understand that when people buy a home, they are not just looking at the house; they are looking at the neighborhood and the community,” says NAR President Elizabeth Mendenhall. “While the idea of the ‘perfect neighborhood’ is different for every homeowner, more Americans are expressing a desire to live in communities with access to public transit, shorter commutes, and greater walkability. REALTORS® work tirelessly at improving their communities through smart growth initiatives that help transform public spaces into these walkable community centers.”

Women tend to prioritize walkability and public transit more than men, according to the survey. Fifty-four percent of women surveyed said that sidewalks and places to take walks are very important to them when deciding where to live. Thirty-nine percent also said having public transit nearby was important.

Overall, 60 percent of the 3,000 adults surveyed live in a detached, single-family homes. But of those 60 percent, 21 percent said they would rather live in an attached home that offered greater walkability. Sixty percent of those surveyed also said they’d be willing to pay more to live within walking distance of parks, restaurants, and shops. Further, 80 percent of respondents said that sidewalks are a positive factor when purchasing a home.

Pittsburgh, Boston, and Los Angeles may be surprising cities to top the list of best places for retirees. But a new study by Bankrate.com says the numbers show that these nontraditional retiree havens may make a perfect spot for retirement.

Bankrate.com scored the 50 largest metros on factors like health care quality; tax burdens; crime rates; living costs; weather; public transportation; cultural activities; percentage of the population over the age of 65; and seniors’ well-being as scored by the Gallup-Sharecare Well-Being Index.

The 10 best places to retire in America, according to Bankrate.com, are:

  1. Pittsburgh
  2. Boston
  3. Los Angeles
  4. Denver
  5. Providence, R.I.
  6. Minneapolis
  7. Tampa-St. Petersburg, Fla.
  8. Phoenix
  9. Austin, Texas
  10. Dallas
