Latest Housing Statistics and Real Estate Market Trends

Housing Affordability Index

The Housing Affordability Index measures whether or not a typical family earns enough income to qualify for a mortgage loan on a typical home.

Existing-Home Sales

More potential homebuyers were squeezed out from qualifying for a mortgage in October as mortgage rates climbed higher, with the impact greater in expensive areas of the country and in markets that witnessed significant home price gains in recent years.

Pending Home Sales

Pending home sales fell for the fourth consecutive month in September, declining month-over-month and year-over-year in all regions of the U.S.
