The fastest growing segment in population in the US is the elderly. As a group, it is believed that senior citizens over the age of 85 will double between 2013 and 2030. While most people are worried about the social security and what will occur over the coming years, senior housing is another rising concern.
A few families are in a position and are willing to provide a home for their older family members, however, for those that cannot for whatever reason are looking at assisted living facilities or nursing homes. Assisted living facilities are preferred 5 to 1 over nursing homes, thus the market for new assisted living properties is growing.
The demand for these types of facilities will continue to grow as the population becomes older. In addition, the need is being driven for seniors that are unable to live alone due to specific conditions such as Alzheimer’s. This demand for senior housing makes the investment opportunities great.
Gary Langendoen, senior managing director of Madison Realty Companies stated, "Whenever we look at the rapidly aging population in America and the lack of meaningful new construction, we realize how strong the assisted living market will be for the next decade," and went on to say, "The opportunity to expand assisted living properties by adding more beds and to include memory care sections in properties provides significant value-added opportunities to this asset class."

The hot topic in the economy was the national poverty rate, which hit 15.1% for 2010. This is the highest rate seen in history according to the Census Bureau.
Last year the rate was up 14.3% over 2009 and marked the third consecutive annual increase. In 2010, there were 46.2 million Americans living in poverty, which is up from 43.6 million in 20009, which marked the fourth consecutive annual increase and the largest number ever seen of American living in poverty since the beginning of the Census Bureau’s reports in 1959.

This is the very first time since the Great Depression that the median household income after adjusting for inflation did not raise for an extended period.
Lawrence Katz, Harvard economics professor, stated, “This is truly a lost decade,” and went on to say, “We think of America as a place where every generation is doing better, but we’re looking at a period when the median family is in worse shape than it was in the late 1990s.”

The 2nd quarter of 2011 still shows the real estate market is up and down which means that change is still occurring and nothing is impossible.
When it comes to real estate today, you will hear different stories according to the person talking and where your home is located. The bottom line is that homebuyers are few and far between with the main reason being the falling prices.
Yes, lower prices encourage those looking for a great deal, but it can cause those looking for a home to back off. Who wants to buy a home to have the price drop lower than what they paid?
The good news is that in major cities home prices were back to the levels seen in the summer of 2003. Home prices may be on the rise however, the housing market is still the weakest link in the United States economy.
Home prices have not fully recovered and will not until the number of foreclosures are reduced, companies being hiring in larger numbers, banks have some slack in lending rules, and more families feel comfortable about buying a home.
Barry Newman, a HouseHunt agent working for @properties in Deerfield, Illinois stated, “Prices are going down, and they have to go down,” and went on to say, “I don’t think we’ve hit the bottom, and I think there are a lot of people holding back because of all the foreclosures on the market.”
Other agent across the US that was polled by HouseHunt.com stated the 2nd 2quarter of 2011 was about the same as the 1st quarter with numbers steady but a bit from prosperous times.
Joyce Pettit of Keller Williams Realty in Boiling Springs, South Carolina stated, “It’s slower this year than last year for me, and if I’m judging from the previous few quarters, people are still looking and still buying, but, overall, they’re a lot more particular,” and went on to say, “I’m hoping that prices have pretty much stabilized here. I don’t think they can fall a whole lot more.”
Sixty four of those that responded to the poll said that prices were down from the first quarter at 56%, but went on to say that 19% said that appreciation is up 0 to 5% when in the 1st quarter the figure was 21%. Seven percent of respondents said prices were up around 5 to 10 percent when compared to the 1st quarter at 9%. Five percent said prices were up 5% when compared to the 6% seen in the 1st quarter.
HouseHunt agent Kristen Malcolm of Coldwell Banker in Cherry Hills Village stated, “Houses are moving, inventory has dropped because so many houses have gone under contract and sold, and in Cherry Hills there have been quite a few instances where people have gotten full asking price and multiple offers,” and went on to say, “There’s so much demand; so much is going under contract and selling. There are lots of buyers.”
There are still more home sellers being seen than buyers with 52% saying there are more in sellers in their communities.
When it comes to inventory, 82% of respondents stated that there is a good supply only down a bit from the 1st, which was 87%. Asking prices are better with more home sellers receiving around 95% of their target price.
Clyde Thomas, an agent with Coldwell Banker stated, “We lost more than 4,000 homes because of flooding. It’s not a good situation right now, and there’s a real fight when it comes to homes coming up on the market.”
“There are far more sellers than buyers,” Thomas said. “It’s been pretty hard.”
In May, the national median price for existing homes was $166,500, which was close to 5% below the comparable price seen in May 2010, as reported by the National Association of Realtors. The average interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 4.5%, which is a bit above the four-decade low of 4.17% seen in November.
Mike Bearden, president and CEO of HouseHunt Inc. stated, “I don’t yet see the light at the end of the tunnel. Prices are still declining in most areas despite incredibly low prices and interest rates. Many sales these days are all cash investor sales. Banks must start lending money to more prospective home purchasers for housing prices to stabilize and begin to increase. The banks are waiting for a better economy and stronger employment, but those cannot be achieved without housing participating in the recovery. We will see how the rest of 2011 plays out; then we may have a clearer picture as to when housing will recover.”
Other important results from the 2nd quarter 2011 survey by HouseHunt.com
84% average days on the market, was over 60 days and is closer to 4 months.
66% most customers were repeat buyers or investors, which is up from what was seen in the 1st quarter of 58%.
65% stated they are seeing more multiple offers on their listings.
June saw a drop in existing home sales but an increase in construction and new home permits. Existing home sales, which include town homes, condos, and single-family homes, decreased 0.8% in the month of June to an annual rate of 4.77 million. In May, the figure was 4.81 million. This figure was 8.8% lower than the 5.23 million-unit level seen in June of 2010 as reported by the National Association of Realtors.
The National Association of Realtors explained that this low figure was due to cancellations of contracts. In addition, the National Association of Realtors the Midwestern and southern US saw gains in sales however, this activity was offset by the drops seen in the western and western US. Single-family home sales stayed the same while condos dropped a bit. Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist stated that overall, any recovery in the market has stayed uneven.
“Home sales had been trending up without a tax stimulus, but a variety of issues are weighing on the market, including an unusual spike in contract cancellations in the past month,” he explained. “The underlying reason for elevated cancellations is unclear, but with problems including tight credit and low appraisals, 16 percent of NAR members report a sales contract was cancelled in June, up from 4 percent in May, which stands out in contrast with the pattern over the past year.”
Existing home sales did not perform well; there is still some optimism for June’s market. Building permits that were issued for private homes for the month of June increased to an annual rate of 624,000, which is a 2.5% rise over the figure seen in the month of May at 609,000 as reported by the Census Bureau. Building permits for single-family homes saw a 0.2% gain at 407,000 over May’s figure of 406,000. Permits for all homes in the month of June were 6.7% over the estimated figure of June 2010 at 585,000.
Construction of private housing starts for the month of June were at 629,000 which is an increase of 14.6 over what was seen in May at 549,000 and 16.7% above the figure seen a year ago of 539,000. Construction of single-family home starts for June rose to 453,000, which is 9.4% higher than the figure seen in May at 414,000.
Building permits may have seen a rise, but completion in the construction market was down in June which was 535,000 being 1.7% below the estimate in May of 544,000 and 39.3% below a year ago at 881,000. Single-family home construction completion for the month of June was at 436,000, which is the same as May’s rate of 436,000.
First claims for unemployment benefits were up for the week that ended on July 16, after seeing a drop the prior week, as reported by the Employment and Training Administration.

The Leading Economic Index for the month of June rose 0.3% to 115.3, after seeing a 0.8% rise in the month of May, and a 0.3% drop in the month of April, as reported by the Conference Board reported last week.
