Big Discounts on Foreclosures Fading, Economist Says

Home buyers may not get as great of a deal on a foreclosure as they once did, according to Paul Diggle from Capital Economics in a new report.

Foreclosure starts are falling and the inventory of foreclosures has been decreasing, which has caused the discount on foreclosures to lessen.

The discount on foreclosed homes compared to other homes has fallen to a 12 percent average, according to Diggle. That was about the same percentage prior to the housing crash, he says. Last year the foreclosure discount averaged about 30 percent.

“Ultra-low mortgage interest rates and steady, if not spectacular, job creation could mean that the delinquency rate and foreclosure start rate are falling quickly,” Diggle writes.

70 Percent Say Buying Now is Good

A survey by Fannie Mae shows that 70 percent of Americans believe it is a good time to buy a home.

That is up from 64 percent in January 2010.

Still, 33 percent–up from 30 percent in January–say they’ll rent next time around.

About 67 percent believe housing is a safe investment, down from 83 percent of people questioned in a similar survey in 2003.
