Share Save What a difference three years can make. Pro Teck Valuation Services has released a new Home Value Forecast, tracking housing market data between October 2014 and October 2017. During that period, many housing markets across the nation surged from “weak” to “hot.” That’s good news, but what is driving the change?Pro Teck’s Home Value Forecast analyzes market trends and historical data for the top 200 core-based statistical areas (CBSAs) in the United States and then tracks their recovery from “weak” to “hot.” (The other Market Condition Ratings include “soft,” “normal,” “good,” and “strong,” respectively.) Looking at the data from October 2014 through October 2017, that period saw the number of “hot” markets jump from only 7 all the way to 78. The number of “strong” markets also increased dramatically, going from 38 to 62.In October 2014, 22.5 percent of the CBSAs tracked by Pro Teck’s Home Value Forecast had a rating of “strong” or “hot.” Three years later in October 2017, that number had increased to 70 percent. In that same time frame, the number of CBSAs with a “soft” or “weak” rating drop from 39 percent to 10.5 percent.Tom O’Grady, CEO of Pro Teck Valuation Service, said, “Limited inventory and a backlog in construction has left a void in available housing stock, leading to a strong real estate market filled with competitive buyers, increased prices and many same-day sales.”Pro Teck’s analysis credits changes in foreclosure sales as a primary driving factor in this recovery. “During the recovery, metros with larger proportions of foreclosure sales as a percent of market sales saw a muted recovery,” says Pro Teck’s Home Value Forecast report. “Nowhere was this more evident than in Florida.” Between 2014 and 2017 helped spike three different Florida CBSAs from “weak” to “strong”: Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond, Florida, Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford, Florida, and Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Florida. In each of these CBSAs, the foreclosure sales as a percentage of market sales dropped from the 30 percent range to between five and seven percent between 2014 and 2017.You can read Pro Teck’s entire Home Value Forecast by clicking here.

Funds prompt questions by PCC

first_img Published 6:31 am Tuesday, November 15, 2011 “The money is there and we’ve got the money to pave the Pleasant Hill Church Road,” Goodson said. “The church members have been asking for that road to be paved for years. When it rains, they can’t even get to the church cemetery to put away their loved ones. They have to cancel their services. They’ve even had to cancel a Christmas service.”Commissioner Charlie Harris questioned the dollar figures Goodson quoted.“Where’d the money come from?” he asked. “We didn’t have money and all of sudden here it is. This has opened a sack of worms. Something ain’t right.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration You Might Like Celebrating ‘Roots’ Pike County honors its own artists A packed house for an art exhibit in Pike County is not the norm… read more By The Penny Hoarder The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Around the WebDoctor: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Health VideosIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

We are taxpayers, too. But we keep getting passed to the side when other roads with only two or three people living on them are getting paved.”Johnson said the road to Pleasant Hill Baptist Church is used every Sunday.“And, sometimes we can’t even get down the road to worship God,” she said.“And, all that gravel that’s been put on the road is doing is tearing people’s cars.“Get the figures and do the right thing. We are tired of being nice.”Harris told the representatives of Pleasant Hill Church that there’s a law that dictates what the Commission can do.“We’re going to have to wait and see what we can do,” he said.Barron told the church representatives that there is priority to paving roads.“We have to maintain the county’s road to keep them safe for the county as a whole,” he said.“We have to keep the roads safe and that means keeping up the equipment needed to do the job.”Harris said if the money is there, he will vote to do both, pave the Pleasant Hill Road and buy equipment for the road department. If there’s money to do only one thing, he will “vote to pave the road.”Goodson made a motion to pave the Pleasant Hill Church road but the motion died for lack of a second.The Commission elected Homer Wright to serve a second term as chairman and Robin Sullivan was elected vice chairman.The Commission will not make a decision on paving the Pleasant Hill Church road or on County Engineer Russell Oliver’s request for funding for the road department until after the commissioners meet with the county’s CFO.Those issues will be taken up at the Nov. 28 meeting. Sponsored Content Funds prompt questions by PCC Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Print Article By Jaine Treadwell Harris said he was on a committee with Commissioners Jimmy Barron and Oren Fannin and they were looking for funds and met with the CFO.“The money wasn’t there,” he said. “Three people couldn’t find the money and one person goes in there and finds $300,000? I don’t like being lied to.  I’m tired of being lied to. If the money was there, we should have known it.  Somebody should lose their job for lying to the Commission.”Barron agreed with Harris that the committee was told there was no money to purchase equipment for the county road department.County Administrator Harry Sanders said the CFO was out of the office due to the death of her father and was, therefore, unavailable to discuss finances with the commissioners. Commission Chairman Homer Wright suggested that a meeting be set up to see how much money is actually available. For many months, the Pike County Commission has been telling the public there’s no money to be found in its coffer.On Monday night, Commissioner Ray Goodson unfolded a piece of paper that revealed that “after expenses” the county has $355,000.Goodson said Chief Financial Officer Deborah Gibson provided him with the information.last_img read more

Day, Syracuse’s senior center, scored 21 points, blocked four shots and grabbed 11 rebounds to become the program’s all-time leading rebounder with 1,005 career boards. For the third time this year Sykes, Peterson and Day each had at least 20 points.“If she stays in and plays her game, we’re going to be OK,” Hillsman said. “That was the biggest thing in the game: Keeping her on the floor.”The Orange shot 7-for-16 from 3-point range, a 43.8 percent clip, and hit 15-of-17 free-throw attempts. The Hokies trailed by 16 at the half and pulled within six at the 2:46 mark before Syracuse finished the game on an 11-2 run to seal the victory.Syracuse looks to continue its 16-game home winning streak when it returns home Thursday for a matchup with Pittsburgh (12-9, 3-5) at 7 p.m. Comments Published on January 29, 2017 at 6:24 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21last_img read more
