CHICAGO IL REAL ESTATE STATS PACK - July 21, 2008

Good Morning, Everyone!

A massive Housing Bill may be on the way to the President's desk as early as this week.  It will allow many of those home owners in distress, owing more on their mortgage than what their home is worth on the market today, or facing mortgage resets, to refinance their mortgage into a more affordable, FHA-insured loan.

But not every home owner will qualify!

Review our blog post today at BlogChicagoHomes.com for more details.

OBSERVATIONS

Some hopeful numbers this past week! 

While Active Listing Inventory continued stable over the past couple of weeks, Average Sales Price actually took an upturn, up a respectful 6.6%.  The number of Pending Sales and Closed Listings each see-sawed once again this week, falling somewhat since the last time we checked the stats one week ago.  

Average Market Time way up this week.  This might be an aberration, but, in any event, remains high.  Total Sales Volume stable versus last week, expected for a mid-month reading.

Absorption Rate, or average inventory turnover, again increased, by 1.8%, over the last week.  There is 28.71 months of active inventory, on average, in the North and Northwest Side Neighborhoods we serve in the City of Chicago!   Percentage of Sale Within Six Month (180 Days) was stable between the last two stats check readings.

RATE AND MARKET CHECK 

Average 30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates fell strongly this past week - by 0.9% this past week, as compared to the week ending July 10th.  Rates averaged 6.26% for the week ending July 17th.   One year ago, average 30-Year Fixed Mortgage Interest Rates were 6.73%

"Mortgage rates fell this week amid market speculation that the Federal Reserve (Fed) may not raise the overnight bank-lending rate this year after all," said Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac Vice President and Chief Economist. "Some of the factors motivating the change in market perceptions this week included retail sales for June rising at the slowest pace since February and consumer sentiment in July holding at low levels not seen since 1980."
