Selling Real Estate
Cash home buyers are on a spending spree! In today’s housing market update, I discuss the recent increase of cash buyers in the US. Also, I report that pending home sales continue to drop yet new listings are increasing. Lastly, I discuss the latest news for mortgage loan delinquency rates and mortgage interest rates.

According to Redfin, the share of homes purchased for cash this year increased to 30%. This is the largest share since 2014. One year ago the share was 25.3% And for comparison the largest share of cash sales over the last 20 yrs was in 2012 and 2013 when 34% of all sales were from cash buyers.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) posted that “contracts signed during the four weeks ended July 11 (pending sales) decreased 7% from one year ago.” Meanwhile, the “active listings that came into the market in the past four weeks rose 4.3% from one year ago.”

Meanwhile, Corelogic reported that “the serious [mortgage] delinquency rate — defined as 90 days or more past due, including loans in foreclosure — was 3.3% in April, roughly three times that of a year earlier.” However, it’s down from a pandemic high from August 2020.

To give you a quick mortgage interest rates update, according to the Mortgage News Daily the average 30yr fixed rate mortgage decreased to 3.04% for the current mortgage rates. This is mixed news if you’re a homebuyer right now or if you’re a homeowner looking to refinance.
