mmgWeekly


Last Week in Review: Once again, home prices experienced big gains.
Forecast for the Week: The Fed will be focusing on inflation, manufacturing and more.

“Seems there ain’t no end in sight.” Garth Brooks. Home prices jumped again in July, rising 1.1 percent from June. How high will they go?

Home prices around the country, including distressed sales, have risen 6 percent from July 2015 through July 2016, according to data analytics firm CoreLogic. Low home loan rates will likely fuel home purchases in the year ahead. Limited inventory, however, could further drive home prices up because the supply is not meeting demand.

Meanwhile, job growth slowed in August, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. Non-farm Payrolls grew by 151,000, below the 180,000 expected. In addition, average hourly earnings rose by a disappointing 0.1 percent versus the 0.2 percent expected.

And while the Unemployment Rate remained at 4.9 percent, the Labor Force Participation Rate (LFPR) held steady at 62.8 percent, which is near multi-decade lows. The LFPR measures the number of people who are either employed or actively looking for work, and it should be moving higher in a recovery.

The good news is home loan rates are still hovering in historically low territory. For people in the market for a home right now, good rates can help offset home price increases.

The market is robust and good properties are moving quickly in San Diego, California. It’s a fantastic time for buyers with these low interest rates. But they will NOT last forever.
Fed members will be zeroing in on the data and may begin adjusting rates UPWARD.
They will be taking a good hard look at Initial Jobless Claims, Retail Sales, and Producer Price Index – these are the measures they review for inflationary trends.
If you or someone you know is considering buying or moving up …. NOW is the time to do so with these Incredible Rates.

5 Reasons Why Every Homebuyer Needs Owner's Title Insurance



1.        Protect Your Investment
For a reasonable, one-time fee, owner’s title insurance will protect the homebuyer’s property rights for as long as they or their heirs own the home.

2.       Reduce Risk
Owner’s title insurance will protect against any unforeseen legal and/or financial title discrepancies that may arise, such as a claim filed for ownership by the heir of a previous owner, a debt unpaid to a contractor by the builder, or a lien against the property because the seller has not paid his taxes.

3.       The Cost is Minimal
Owner’s title insurance generally costs no more than 0.5 percent of the home’s purchase price.

4.       There is Nothing Else Like It
Homeowner’s insurance and warranties protect only the structure and belongings in your client’s home. As more than eight to ten homebuyers annually attest, owner’s title insurance is the only insurance that ensures that a family’s rights to the property will stay protected.

5.       Buying Peace of Mind
Purchasing owner’s title insurance means that homebuyers can rest assured that when they close on their new home, they will be protected from inheriting any existing debts or legal problems now or in the future.
