    Update on Coronavirus Market Impacts


    Buyer demand remains the bright spot in the housing market as low interest rates and a slowly healing economy combines with greater flexibility on where to live and the renewed importance of housing to strain a limited supply of homes. However, that dearth of inventory is expected to begin to weigh more heavily on closed transactions as we enter the winter and lead to a greater erosion in housing affordability that will prevent many would-be homeowners from taking advantage of historically low interest rates. As such, it is important to remind sellers about conditions on the ground to generate an increase in much-needed listings: prices are rising, homes are selling fast, and they’re near full asking price.

    Dear readers —


    On Saturday the Wall Street Journal reported (and our sources confirmed) that the FHFA was speaking with industry trade groups about potentially delaying the LLPA fee on refinance loans, which had been set to launch Sept. 1. On background, several people said it was an extremely fluid situation, but they expected something to happen.


    Today we saw the fruit of those discussions, as the FHFA announced it was not only delaying the start date to Dec. 1, but also exempting refinance loans with loan balances below $125,000. Read all about it in our coverage here.


    Until tomorrow —
