Duncan says Fannie Mae is "cautiously optimistic that ongoing labor market improvements, low mortgage rates, rising inventories and some easing of lending standards will boost home sales by roughly 5.0 percent" in 2015. He still sees the housing recovery as an "upward grind" rather than a predicting a "breakout year."
...expectation for housing starts just slightly to one million units for 2014, but our view of mortgage originations has not changed," Duncan said. "Our estimate for 2013 was in line with the recent release of 2013 data under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, and our projection of total production in 2014 is little changed at approximately $1.1 trillion. For 2015, we are cautiously optimistic that ongoing labor market improvements, low mortgage rates, rising inventories, and some easing of lending standards will boost home sales by roughly 5.0 percent. However, we still believe housing will continue along its upward grind rather than have the breakout year some are expecting."
...us back to the modestly positive trend we've seen over the last year," said Doug Duncan, senior vice president and chief economist at Fannie Mae. "It might be too late to save this year's home sales from posting the first decline in five years. However, the return to an upward trend in housing sentiment, combined with this month's positive news on the jobs front, suggests that a broad-based, albeit measured, housing recovery is on track to resume in 2015. The results of the past few months show that consumer optimism remains cautious and somewhat volatile, and we'll likely continue to see bumps on the housing recovery path reflected in our survey results."
...having shown only lukewarm growth since a promising start to the third quarter, but our forecast is little changed from August," said Duncan. "Purchase mortgage applications have trended down over the past three months, despite the declining interest rate environment. We believe this suggests a residual conservatism on the part of consumers and supports our view that the pace of growth in the housing sector will be subdued during the remainder of 2014, with modest improvement in 2015."
