1. Home values point to a sharp wealth divide within US cities -

WASHINGTON (AP) — It's still possible in Boston for a mail carrier, an accountant and a Harvard-trained psychiatrist — basically, the crowd from "Cheers" — to live as neighbors.

That finding by the real estate brokerage Redfin makes the capital of Massachusetts a rarity at a time when neighborhoods in most U.S. cities are increasingly isolated from each other by income and home values.

2. US housing recovery divided on age, race and place -

WASHINGTON (AP) — It's the most profitable time to sell a house since the Great Recession started in late 2007. But first-time buyers are increasingly scarce.

More Americans are qualifying for mortgages, yet minorities still get disproportionately rejected.

3. US home sales surge in June to fastest pace in 8-plus years -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans bought homes in June at the fastest rate in over eight years, pushing prices to record highs as buyer demand has eclipsed the availability of houses on the market.

4. Why homebuyers face a tough spring -

Eager to buy your first home this spring? Already own, but want to trade up? Be warned: there'll be plenty of competition.

Bidding wars have broken out in hot real-estate markets like Denver and Los Angeles, where there aren't enough houses to meet demand. The lack of supply is a key reason home sales nationwide have yet to return to healthy levels following the housing collapse in 2008.

5. Rents soar in San Francisco, up 3.7 percent nationwide -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Home rental prices are soaring in San Francisco, while pockets of the Midwest and South are also posting big annual increases.

6. Signed contracts to buy US homes climb to 20-month high -

WASHINGTON (AP) — More Americans signed contracts to buy homes in February, evidence that the spring buying season could open strong after sluggish sales for much of the winter.

7. US new home sales jump 11.6 percent in December -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sales of new U.S. homes accelerated strongly in December, a sign that home-buying may improve this year after a lackluster 2014.

The Commerce Department said Tuesday that new home sales climbed 11.6 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 481,000. The gains were not enough to offset essentially flat home-buying over the course of 2014. Just 435,000 new homes were bought last year, a modest 1.2 percent improvement from 2013.

8. Foreclosures fell in 2014 to levels before housing bust -

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A healthier U.S. housing market and economy helped to winnow foreclosures in 2014 to levels not seen since before the housing bust.

The decline is the latest evidence of how foreclosures have diminished in recent years from a national crisis to a largely market-specific concern.

9. Labor, land shortage means rising Middle Tennessee home prices -

A shortage of ready-to-build lots and skilled tradespersons – plus caution among builders – mean fewer homes will be built and home prices will rise, those in the industry are saying.

“Although we’re not back to the same permit level we once were, we’re seeing a lack of skilled labor in the workplace,” says Nashville homebuilder David Luecke.

10. US home sales rise in October -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans bought homes in October at the briskest pace this year, a sign that the sluggish housing market is turning around.

That's up from a revised pace of 5.18 million in September. October marked the first month in 2014 when sales increased compared to a year ago, registering a 2.5 percent gain.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court said Monday it will decide whether homeowners who declare bankruptcy can void a second mortgage if the home's market value has dropped below the amount they owe on the first mortgage.

12. US new-home sales close to flat in September -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. sales of new homes were nearly flat in September, after the government sharply revised downward what was initially an August surge in buying.

New-home sales edged up 0.2 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 467,000, the Commerce Department reported Friday. The report also revised down the August sales rate to 466,000 from 504,000.

13. Lenders repossessed fewer US homes in January -

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lenders repossessed fewer U.S. homes in January, bringing the number of completed foreclosures down to the lowest level in more than six years.

Even so, many states posted sharp increases in the number of homes entering the foreclosure process for the first time, a trend that raises the likelihood that those states will see a surge in foreclosed homes later this year.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lenders initiated foreclosure action in August against the fewest U.S. homes for any month in nearly eight years, a trend that should help reduce the number of homes lost to foreclosure in the months ahead.

19. US home foreclosures on track for 6-year low -

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The U.S. is on track to end the year with the fewest homes repossessed by lenders in six years, a trend that should help limit the negative impact foreclosures have on home values.

20. US home prices vault nearly 12 percent in June -

U.S. home prices surged 11.9 percent in June from a year earlier, reflecting stronger demand amid a tight supply of homes for sale.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — National foreclosure trends took a positive turn in April, as the number of homes seized by banks declined and fewer properties entered into the foreclosure process.

That is threatening to drag out a housing recovery, foreclosure listing firm RealtyTrac Inc. said Thursday.
