Report highlights include:
"While February's yearly growth of 6.1% is encouraging, let's remember this rate of growth is measured against the market's bottom, which we reported in our March 2012 Market Report," said Dr. Alex Villacorta, director of research and analytics at Clear Capital." Consumer confidence continues to be vital to a broader housing recovery and national quarterly home prices expanding 1.0% in the midst of winter is confirmation the recovery has legs. While 1.0% is weaker in comparison to more recent rates of quarterly growth, the positive trend continues to support homebuyer confidence and is on par with the new normal.
Recent updates on the regulatory front could also build momentum in the housing revival. The Qualified Mortgage (QM) rule gives lenders more definition on extending credit to homebuyers, who continue to be encouraged by positive economic signs. The real question now is how many of those sidelined borrowers will qualify for a loan under the new rules. All told, February's home data shows the housing recovery on track."
