1 in 3 Homes Is a Rental

A growing number of single-family homes have become rentals, according to the findings from the newly released 2013 American Housing Survey, by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and U.S. Census Bureau. The report takes a look at the nation’s housing stock and provides information on the housing quality and make-up.

The report shows that 65 percent of all housing units were occupied by owners in 2011, while 35 percent were occupied by renters. Fewer homes are standing vacant. Of the 133 million total housing units in 2013, 87 percent were occupied—an increase of 413,000 since 2011.

Montclair Center Named Semi-Finalist for Great American Main Street Award

The Montclair Center Business Improvement District has been named one of just 10 semifinalists for the National Main Street Center’s Great American Main Street Award.

According to Montclair Center BID’s executive director Luther Flurry, if Montclair wins the award, it will be only the second time that a New Jersey town achieved this honor in the 18 years of the award’s history. Westfield won back in 2004.

National Main Street Center will announce the 2015 winners at its annual conference happening in March. Montclair fits perfectly into the award’s philosophy of recognizing communities that utilize a “Main Street Approach” to revitalize their downtown business districts.

The Montclair Center BID, which formed in 2002, won Great Downtown in 2013 and Jersey Arts People’s Choice Awards.

Average 30-year mortgage dips to 4.19%

WASHINGTON (AP) — A key long-term U.S. mortgage rate dipped this week, the second drop after a large increase two weeks ago.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday the nationwide average for a 30-year loan slipped to 4.19% from 4.20% last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, was unchanged at 3.36%.

The 30-year rate is down from 4.53% at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end next month.

Mortgage rates often follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.41% at midday Thursday, down sharply from 2.57% a week earlier.

The decline in the 30-year rate comes after sales of existing homes fell in August. Investors retreated from real estate and first-time buyers remained scarce, according to a report last week from the National Association of Realtors.

And fewer Americans signed contracts to buy homes in August, suggesting that sluggish sales could continue. The Realtors group said Monday that its seasonally adjusted pending home sales index fell 1%.

By contrast, the Commerce Department said last week that sales of newly constructed homes surged in August, to the fastest sales pace since May 2008.

To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesn’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1% of the loan amount.

The average fee for a 30-year mortgage fell to 0.4 point from 0.5 point last week. The fee for a 15-year mortgage remained at 0.5 point.

The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage fell to 3.06% from 3.08%. The fee rose to 0.5 point from 0.4 point a week ago.

For a one-year ARM, the average rate dipped to 2.42% from 2.43%pe. The fee held at 0.4 point.
