Confidence in housing is at a new peak, with enthusiasm among sellers soaring, according to the April Fannie Mae Home Purchase Sentiment Index® (HPSI). At 91.7, the Index plowed through its previous record, climbing 3.4 percentage points month-over-month and five points year-over-year.
“The latest HPSI reading edged up to a new survey high, showing that consumer attitudes remain resilient going into the spring/summer home-buying season,” says Doug Duncan, chief economist and senior vice president at Fannie Mae.
What is driving the lift? Americans are optimistic about their prospects for selling, with 45 percent believing now is ideal to list—a high point since the start of the survey. By the same token, almost half (49 percent) of Americans believe home prices will rise—conditions that, for sellers, translate to an upper hand.”

“FHA TAKES STEPS TO HELP HOME BUYERS
In a move applauded by housing experts, the federal Housing Administration (FHA) took an important step to help low and moderate-income buyers get into a home. For the first time in two years, FHA has cut their annual mortgage insurance premium. The premium has been cut from .85 to .60 percent.” (Reference: Nat’l Association of Realtors)
