After a series of months during which volume was low, Henderson foreclosure filings have started to rise again.
Standard & Poors released its December 2011 Case-Shiller Index this week.
The Pending Home Sales Index resumed its climb in January, posting a 2 percent gain over the month prior.
321,000 new homes were sold last month on a seasonally-adjusted, annualized basis. 7 of 10 new homes sold for less than $300,000.
January’s home resales moved to a 20-month high — additional evidence that the nation’s housing recovery is underway.
Foreclosure filings fell 19 percent last month versus one year ago, says foreclosure-tracking firm RealtyTrac. It’s yet one more signal that the U.S. housing market may have already climbed off its bottom.
For the sixth straight month, the National Association of Homebuilders reports that homebuilder confidence is on the rise. The Housing Market Index climbed four points to 29 in February, the index’s highest reading since May 2007.
Single-family housing starts climbed 4 percent last month to 470,000 units on a seasonally-adjusted, annualized basis. This is the highest number of Single-Family Housing Starts since April 2010 — the last month of last year’s home buyer tax credit.
Homebuilder confidence is soaring, reaching levels not seen in more than 4 years.
Henderson foreclosure filings are fewer these days, according to foreclosure-tracking firm RealtyTrac.
