Commercial Property Economic And Housing Market Predictions For Springfield Illinois 2010 Posted By: Fritz Pfister The ability to make reasonably accurate predictions regarding the economy and the housing market can come from several sources. The government, academia, or people actually working in the private sector. The latter is where this set of predictions emanates. Springfield, Illinois enjoys the second lowest unemployment rate in the state at 8.2%. Second only to Bloomington, home to State Farm Insurance, and thousands of jobs. Springfield is the Capital and home to thousands of government jobs. White collar both. There have been a net loss of 1600 jobs in Springfield since the beginning of the recession in December of 2007. State wide a net loss of 360,800. Manufacturing leading the way with 96,300 jobs lost. All reported in The State Journal Register citing the Illinois Department of Employment Security. Jobs are the key to the over all health of the economy and the housing market. The number of people working directly impact the success of local businesses, the number of home sales, and as we have learned, the amount of revenue collected at all levels of government.




Springfield Illinois housing market The Housing Market Forecast For 2009 Posted By: Alan Brymer Allow me to give you my thoughts on what the housing market forecast is for the remainder of 2009. So far this year, I have heard unbridled optimism from many hopeful sellers, agents, and investors, believing that the market and values cannot possibly stay down any longer. On the other hand, some experts and real estate professionals predict another Great Depression that will last 10 years or longer. They base this on the fact that the real estate bubble was allowed to grow so much larger than ever before, the ramifications of it popping have got to be all the more severe. I agree that the housing market will probably be worse than it has in the last half century, but I don’t believe it will be the next Great Depression, for the following three reasons. Reason #1: If you remember the Depression, many investors lost 100% of their profits, and banks were forced to go out of business. That is because the nature of the stock market is that you have to buy stock for whatever its current value is.


real estate investment New Year Rate Drop ‘could Make Loans Process Easier’ Posted By: Steve Smith Consumers looking for bad credit loans due to their unconventional previous borrowing history may find the process gets easier in 2008, according to comments from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). Some consumers seeking bad credit secured loans in recent months may have been confronted by a number of obstacles due to the impact of the credit crunch, which has seen many lenders reluctant to lend to certain individuals. The CML’s press officer, Sarah Robson, has noted that the increase in the number of application rejections from adverse credit lenders is due to a tightening of criteria from such organisations, looking to cover themselves from being too badly affected by the credit crunch. Kensington Mortgages is a prime example of the current situation for bad credit lenders and highlights the issues facing those seeking bad credit loans or adverse credit. The specialist mortgage lender today withdrew from the sub-prime mortgage market, with the lack of interest in adverse credit from investors during this time of crunch the driving force behind the decision. "Tough times call for tough decisions.

The housing market in Albuquerque, New Mexico is appreciating at a higher level causing the change in the Top 25 Markets forecast.

interactive poll Worst 25 U.s. Housing Market Forecast Hits 13 States Posted By: Mike Colpitts The Worst 25 U.S. housing markets in 2007 in the Housing Predictor forecast represent markets in thirteen states, which shows housing prices in much of the nation are still declining, despite local markets in another 13 states that are appreciating. Miami, Florida was selected as the #1 worst housing market in the nation, mainly because of a market that had seen high-flying double digit appreciation pushed by the over building of new condominiums causing Miami to spiral downward, resulting in a slower market with increasing unemployment. More than 25,000 new condominiums are due to be completed within the next 15 months in Miami, providing an inventory of new units on the market that will take years to sell out. Not all of the Miami market will see double digit depreciation in 2007, particularly not lower priced single family homes under $250,000. None the less, the average loss in values is forecast by Housing Predictor to hit 13.9% by years end. In the west San Diego, California, which attracts many for its mild year round climate has a home market where sales are slow. San Diego will see prices fall an average of 13.





housing How Housing Predictor Broke The Mold Posted By: Mike Colpitts It was a chilly winter day in late 2004 when the idea of Housing Predictor suddenly struck like a lightning bolt. I’d been thinking about developing a website to provide information on the housing market that had not been offered, not just another place on the web to search for homes for sale. At this point I had developed more than 20 web sites, almost all of which were real estate oriented. Like a lot of people I wondered how long this feverish pitch in the real estate market could keep up before it would come tumbling down. After all real estate has always been a long term investment, and after years in real estate sales and investing I wanted to produce a site that would be informative and helpful for consumers everywhere in the U.S. Housing Predictor is actually the work of a very small group of dedicated hard working professionals, only a staff of seven. Today it has exploded on the internet to become one of the fastest growing sites in an industry proliferated by thousands of new web sites a day.
