The average number of home sales were 3.2 percent lower than in June in the 53 metro areas surveyed, but 11.3 percent higher than sales in July 2014. Fifty-two of 53 metro areas reported higher sales on a year-over-year basis and 31 areas experienced double-digit increases.On a year-over-year basis, the increase in sales for each of the first seven months of 2015 was 5.9 percent. “Even though home sales were slightly lower in July than in June, the numbers look very good and remain well above the levels we saw last summer,” said Dave Liniger, RE/MAX CEO, chairman of the Board and co-founder. “Credit accessibility does appear to be loosening up, bringing homeownership back within the reach of many more Americans. If the economy moves forward and wage growth improves, potential homebuyers and sellers should feel more confident about entering the market.”The report also found that the median sales price of all homes sold in July was $215,000, 4.3 percent lower than the June 2015 price, but 6.4 percent above the price seen last July. On a year-over-year basis, home prices increased 7.7 percent for the first seven months of 2015.Home prices have now risen for 42 consecutive months.States with the highest price increases include San Francisco, California (12.3 percent); Miami, Florida (12.2 percent); Boise, Indiana (12.2 percent); Manchester, New Hampshire (12.1 percent); Denver, Colorado (11.4 percent); and Las Vegas, Nevada (10.5 percent)”With the average inventory this year remaining about 11 percent below a year ago, home prices continue to rise,” the report said. “Among the 53 metro areas surveyed in July, 47 reported higher prices than one year ago, with 6 rising by double-digit percentages.”Inventory levels fell 1.0 percent in July, following three months of month-over-month improvements in homes for sales. On a year-over-year basis, inventory in July was 11.9 percent lower than the previous year. At the current rate of home sales, the resulting months supply of inventory in July still favors sellers at 3.9 on a scale where 6.0 months indicates a market balanced equally between buyers and sellers.Click here to view the complete RE/MAX July 2015 National Housing Report.

The Pearl River in Mississippi is set to overflow, putting hundreds at risk, CNN reports. As of Sunday morning, the river, east of downtown Jackson, hit 36.38 feet, and is expected to 38 feet by Monday. Law enforcement officers went door to door urging at least 510 people to leave their homes on Sunday, Governor Tate Reeves said.”We don’t want to lose anyone as we respond to what is expected to be historic flood levels,” the governor said.Authorities are expecting a “historic, unprecedented flood” that the city has not seen in more than 30 years, Reeves said.BREAKING: As of 10am Monday the Pearl River in Jackson is *cresting* near 36.7 feet. The river did reach a max height of 38 feet between the Spillway & Lakeland Drive according to the NWS. Major flood stage will continue for the next 48hrs. https://t.co/Ty7sCDDTgX @WJTV #MSwx pic.twitter.com/9m4PKVXrXs— Jacob Lanier (@JacobLanierWx) February 17, 2020It will likely take several days for the flood waters to recede, according to emergency officials. According to preliminary reports, 200 homes have been damaged by flood waters, and Governor Reeves states that 2,500 structures, including 1,000 homes, are expected to flood.”We are not out of the woods yet. We are seeing some positive news and positive results from last 24 hours, but there is more water coming into the river and into downtown Jackson,” Reeves said.Flood including the Pearl RIver flood can have lasting impacts on delinquencies, as natural disaster risk rises. According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), there have been at least 14 events with losses exceeding $1 billion in the United States alone. CoreLogic’s report analyzed the economic impact of these conditions, including the rise of defaults in the years following major storms.According to CoreLogic, after 2017’s trio of hurricanes—Harvey, Irma, and Maria—serious delinquency rates on home mortgages tripled in the Houston and Cape Coral, Florida, metro areas and quadrupled in San Juan, Puerto Rico.“Based on CoreLogic research, communities affected by wildfires, hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes and other natural disasters in 2019 will likely experience an increase in mortgage delinquencies and shelter costs, and it can take more than 12 months for mortgage delinquency rates to normalize—and even longer for homes to be repaired or rebuilt,” the report said.
