Some factors that may negatively affect the housing market may be rising prices, low income levels and investor participation. Experts say it may be a slow start, but the housing market will soon level out and make profitable gains once again. More here

Experts Give House Flipping Tips

According to new data, house flipping is experiencing a resurgence. Flipped homes made up 4.6% of all single-family home sales last year in the United States, a 0.4% increase from 2012. The Vice President of RealtyTrac, Daren Blomquist said, “strong home price appreciation in many markets boosted profits for flippers in 2013, despite a shrinking inventory of lower-priced foreclosure homes. For the year, 21% of all properties flipped were purchased out of foreclosure, but that is down from 27% in 2012 and 32% in 2011.” Experts have given a few tips to help house flippers, such as knowing your market, search for flippable houses in unconventional ways, never buy a house you could not make money on by selling the next day, and pay attention to local and national housing data.

Boomers may be downsizing, but research suggests that they are not sacrificing quality in the transition. Sheryl Connelly, the global consumer trends and a “futurist” for Ford said, “the boomer population has always set the trends,” she adds, “and now they’ve set a course for a more streamlined life that doesn’t sacrifice style and comfort.” More here
