Yearly Asking Price Gains Slow Despite Solid Monthly, Quarterly Gains

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Yearly Asking Price Gains Slow Despite Solid Monthly, Quarterly Gains  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Construction Home Prices Price Gains Trulia 2014-05-09 Colin Robins May 9, 2014 725 Views Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Market Studies, News Nationally, asking prices rose 0.8 percent month-over-month in March and 2.8 percent quarter-over-quarter in April. Yet asking prices rose a mere 9.0 percent year-over-year, the smallest gain in 11 months according to an analysis of data from Trulia’s Price Monitor and Rent Monitor. With monthly and quarterly increases holding steady, why are yearly increases slipping?One reason for the slippage is from a large price spike during the housing recovery in February and April of 2013, according to Trulia’s chief economist Jed Kolko. Year-over-year changes in April 2014 no longer include these elevated months, dropping yearly asking price numbers.Excluding foreclosures, asking prices are still relatively similar without the population of foreclosures. Trulia’s Price Monitor noted that monthly and quarterly gains were the same at 0.8 and 2.8 percent, respectively. Year-over-year gains were slightly less at 8.4 percent.Another reason cited by the company is a lag in construction, especially in housing markets with the biggest price rebounds. “The housing markets with the largest year-over-year asking-price increases in April 2014 were Riverside-San Bernardino, Las Vegas, Oakland, Sacramento, and Detroit, all of which are rebounding from steep price declines during the housing bust. However, big price rebounds are no guarantee that a local housing market has recovered,” Kolko said.Furthermore, construction permit data for 2013 from the U.S. Census revealed that markets with the largest price rebounds are still lagging in construction activity. Kolko notes that even cities experiencing the largest booms in construction, metros like New York, Boston, or San Francisco, are for multi-unit buildings to be rented for apartments, not sold as condos.”Nearly all of the markets where asking prices rose most year-over-year still have much less construction than what’s normal for those markets. Instead, builders are building in markets that avoided the worst of the bust and are therefore not having big price rebounds today,” Kolko said.The slowdown of yearly price gains could be problematic for recent sellers, who are increasingly pricing their homes above market value in an effort to capitalize on what they perceive to be a seller’s market.

The Bench of Justice Devendra Kachhawaha and Justice Sandeep Mehta further directed, “Considering the progressive democratic set up of our country and in order to ensure maintenance of proper hygiene in the prisons, it would be expedient in the interest of justice that the State Government considers installation of mechanized/automated cleaning facilities in all the prisons in the State of Rajasthan.” Matter before the Court The Court was hearing two separate writ petitions filed by a Jodhpur-based prisoners’ rights lawyer, Kaluram Bhati, seeking adequate open-air prisons in Rajasthan. The petitions also raised concern over the numbers of prisoners who drop out due to the dated Rajasthan Prisoners Open Air Camp Rules of 1972. Court’s Observation To this, the Court said, “Recently, we have come across a very disturbing report published on a website regarding existence of a caste based work assignment system in the prisons in Rajasthan.” It may be noted that The Wire, on December 10, published a detailed investigative piece on the caste practices prevalent inside prisons across different states in India. The report is based on a research paper of the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI). The Court noted, “As per the report, every person, who enters a prison in the State, is asked about his caste and once identified; menial jobs like cleaning toilets, sweeping the prisons etc. are assigned to the persons from lowest echelons in the society irrespective of the nature of the offence committed.” The said report also refers to the fact that the Prison Manuals of various states are still plagued by the archaic and derogatory caste system, which the Constitution of India pledged to eradicate. “We are of the firm view that no under trial prisoner can be assigned such duties in a prison”, said the Court. Both the matters have been listed for further hearing on 04th January 2021. Case title – Manoj Yadav v. State [D.B. Criminal Writ Petition No. 466/2019] connected with Inderjeet Singh v.

It gets real cold in Chicago and I’d like to get where it’s warmer and also closer to home.”Although it’s cold and windy in Chicago. Barron said he has gotten accustomed to big city life.
