Up, down and all around, mortgage rates and regulations will likely be hot topics this year. Rates should stay low through 2015, but consumers and finance experts believe we’re at or near rate bottoms. The implication of low rates should be that more people will be able to reach homeownership status in the coming year, but it will be interesting to see if regulatory standards loosen up or tighten further based on buyer demand.

  • New Listings increased 15.8% to 1,058

Some goodbyes are easier than others. As we bid farewell to the economic uncertainties of 2014, all eyes are fixated on what 2015 might bring. The economy – specifically job growth – picked up steam in the second half of the year, and that should continue. Housing performed reasonably well, but some metrics didn’t improve as much as in 2013. The new year should bring new listings, new inventory and new buyers to the marketplace.

  • New Listings increased 7.1% to 1,030
  • Pending Sales increased 17.8% to 642
