US Home Purchases Rebound in 2015

U.S. home sales rebounded in December after new regulations had delayed the completion of purchases in November.  New Mortgage rules nationwide called TRID started and is designed to slow down the mortgage process for borrowers giving them more time to shop for a mortgage and review their closing costs days before the closing date.  Total sales sold in 2015 were the most in the last 9 years.   

The National Association of Realtors said recently that sales of existing homes climbed 14.7 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.46 million. Sales had previously plummeted as the industry adapted to new mortgage disclosure rules – a temporary downturn before delayed sales were finalized in December.

December’s rebound concluded a year that produced the highest annual sales total since 2006. Steady job growth and low mortgages drew more buyers into the market, causing both sales and prices to climb.

Americans bought roughly 5.26 million homes in 2015, a 6.5 percent increase over 2014.
