Breaking Real Estate News: Housing Data

Hello Everyone:

Oct existing sales are up! However, when you break down the numbers what does it really tell us? According to CNBC : 33% of existing home sales are attributed to first time home buyers, 50% to real estate investors and the remaining 17% to normal market buying.

So what does this all mean? On face value it looks like great news, but when you put it together with last weeks news of : 10% of American home loans are either in default or 30 days or more behind! Could this be budding proof of my prediction of a 3rd wave of foreclosures on the horizon? Only time will tell...

Until next time be well.
