More consumers planning to buy as mortgage concerns ease.

by Linda Ring 13. January 2014 16:11
The share of consumers who plan to buy a home rose to 6.9 percent in December, up from 5 percent in November, according to a monthly economic outlook released today by Fannie Mae’s Economic & Strategic Research Group.

The share of consumers who plan to buy a home rose to 6.9 percent in December, up from 5 percent in November, according to a monthly economic outlook released today by  Fannie Mae’s Economic & Strategic Research Group.

Despite concerns about mortgage availability, Fannie Mae economists reported that consumer attitudes about the ease of getting a mortgage are at the highest level in the 3 1/2-year history of its National Housing Survey.San Diego Condo For Sale

“This result is consistent with the Federal Reserve’s survey of senior loan officers who reported that they have eased lending standards for residential mortgages over the past year and thus should offset some negative impact stemming from the current higher interest rate environment,” Fannie Mae economists said.

Now that some fiscal uncertainty has been resolved at the federal level, Fannie Mae economists predict an increase in consumer and business spending to bolster economic growth this year, with housing’s contribution expected to double.

Gross domestic product (GDP) will likely come in at 2.9 percent for all of 2014, up from an estimated 2.6 percent in 2013. Of that growth, the mortgage giant anticipates 0.6 percent will come from housing — largely due to new homebuilding activity — up from 0.3 percent in 2013.

“Despite the rise in mortgage rates since the spring, many housing indicators posted strong gains at the end of 2013 and consumer housing attitudes are strengthening, all of which bodes well for continued but measured housing recovery in 2014,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan in a statement.

World’s Largest Gingerbread House

by Linda Ring 9. December 2013 11:10
The title of “World’s Largest Gingerbread House” now belongs to a 60-foot-long-by-42-foot-wide gingerbread and icing-covered home in Bryan, Texas, but visitors looking to ingest some of the home’s 36 million calories will be disappointed.Worlds biggest ginger bread house

The title of “World’s Largest Gingerbread House” now belongs to a 60-foot-long-by-42-foot-wide gingerbread and icing-covered home in Bryan, Texas, but visitors looking to ingest some of the home’s 36 million calories will be disappointed.Worlds biggest ginger bread house

Built to raise funds for a trauma center at nearby St. Joseph Health System, the lumber-framed home, which sports 22,304 pieces of candy and took thousands of pounds of brown sugar, eggs and flour to build, is roped off from the visitors who pay $3 per adult and $2 per child for a tour.

The home takes constant repair due to damage by the Texas sun and other weather and has a 6,500-square-foot tarp to protect it, said Bill Horton, general manager of the Texas A&M Traditions Club, which spearheaded the project.Merry Christmas

A representative from the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed the home’s title at a ceremony on Nov. 30, where Horton verified the exterior’s gingerbread authenticity by tearing off a chunk and eating it, solidifying the candy home’s grip on the title from its previous owner that stood approximately 7 percent smaller at Minnesota’s Mall of America in 2006.

When it’s all said and done, the structure, when finally stripped of its sweet shell, may eventually become a real home.

“Basically it has everything but indoor plumbing,’’ Horton said.
