US home sales tumbled 36 per cent in December

first_imgWASHINGTON – U.S. home sales slid 3.6 per cent in December, as rising prices and a declining number of available properties stifled purchases.The National Association of Realtors said Wednesday that sales of existing homes fell last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.57 million units. Despite the monthly setback, sales totalled 5.51 million in 2017. That was the highest level since 2006, yet it marked a slight 1.1 per cent gain from 2016 as the months’ supply of properties on the market fell to the lowest level ever recorded by the Realtors.The strengthening U.S. economy helped to lift home sales last year, but homeowners are choosing not to list their properties despite the rising prices and relatively low mortgage rates. The lack of homes for sale speaks to the lingering aftershocks from the 2007 housing crisis. After a wave of mortgage defaults and foreclosures, investors bought many properties and turned them into rentals. Meanwhile, homeowners are choosing to build equity rather than upgrade to another house.David Berson, chief economist at Nationwide Insurance, said sales should increase modestly in 2018, but they’ll be “held back by a lack of inventory.”Just 1.48 million homes were listed for sale at the end of December, a 10.3 per cent drop over the past year. There were just 3.2 months’ supply of homes on the market, the lowest level since the Realtors began tracking the figure in 1999.Home values are climbing faster than wages because of the dearth of available properties. The median home sales price increased 5.8 per cent from a year ago to $246,800 in December, a pace more than double gains in average hourly earnings.Sales in December fell in the Northeast, Midwest, South and West.The shortage of homes for sale appears to be setting up a surge in remodeling.Homeowners are expected to spend nearly $340 billion this year on improvements and repairs, a 7.5 per cent increase from 2017, according to a recent analysis by the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University.This would be the steepest increase in renovation activity in more than a decade.Because buyers have limited choices, they’re increasingly willing to pay above the asking price.Roughly 24 per cent of homes last year sold for more than their advertised price, with buyers of those properties on average paying $7,000 above asking, according to the real estate firm Zillow. Those figures have crept upward since 2012.The problem is at its worst in the most expensive markets. Nearly half of homes around San Jose, California — the epicenter of U.S. software companies — sold for above asking with the average premium of $62,000.last_img read more

Go Fund Me raising money for deaf sixyearold halfway to goal of

first_imgThe processor fell off when 6-year-old Chloe Kalas was bumped while playing in the park. Chloe’s mom Elizabeth and her husband searched the park seven different times but came up empty-handed.Elizabeth Kalas explained that Chloe had just recovered from an infection where the magnet inside her head was killing her skin, making Chloe have to wear a weaker magnet. The weaker magnet caused the processor to fall off numerous times.Without the processor, Chloe is completely deaf and must rely on sign language. Kalas added that with her daughter going into grade one this year, a new cochlear implant is a must since it’s already difficult for someone who uses an implant to hear in a school environment.“Without this, she hears nothing, so she’s a bit further behind, speech-wise,” said Kalas.A new processor for the cochlear implant costs $11,130 while the cable and coil cost an additional $370. Kalas added that the family can handle the cost of the cable and coil, but the processor is currently beyond their means.The goal of the GoFundMe is to raise enough money to cover the cost of a new processor. For more information or to donate, visit the GoFundMe campaign’s website at www.gofundme.com/chloe039s-cochlear-processor. UPDATE: The campaign has successfully reached its $12,000 goal. Details to follow.FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Go Fund Me Campaign raising money for a 6-year-old deaf girl who lost the processor for her cochlear implant is halfway to its goal of $12,000.The campaign started on Tuesday just after 11:30 a.m. and reached $6,581 early this morning.last_img read more

SC to hear on Apr 8 pleas challenging Centres decision on 10

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday said it would hear on April 8 a batch of petitions challenging the Centre’s decision to grant 10 per cent reservation in jobs as well as admissions to educational institutions to economically weaker sections across all classes.A bench comprising Justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer said it would also deal with the contentions raised by some of the petitioners who have said that the matter was required to be adjudicated upon by a constitution bench. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’At the outset, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Centre, sought an adjournment saying he and Attorney General K K Venugopal were appearing in a matter on Thursday before a constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi. “I am on my legs before the constitution bench. Please accommodate me,” he told the bench. Senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for one of the petitioners, referred to the apex court’s last order passed in the matter on March 11 and said the issue of whether these pleas should be referred to a Constitution bench should be considered. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K”If the matter is to go before a Constitution bench, then ad-hoc adjournment cannot come in the way,” he said, adding, “You (bench) have to consider if this matter needs to go before a Constitution bench since it attacks the basic structure”. To this, Mehta said, “On this (issue of whether to refer the matter to a Constitution bench), the Attorney General has to say something.” He said these pleas have been “suddenly listed” before a new bench and the Attorney General was appearing in a Constitution bench matter today in the CJI’s court. “We would like to give opportunity to them (Centre) and the Attorney General,” the bench told the counsel appearing for the petitioners. Dhavan said the Railways is going to hold recruitment with 10 per cent reservation to economically weaker sections as per the 103rd amendment. The bench orally observed that it would be subject to its final orders in the matter. Referring to the nine-judge bench decision of the apex court in the landmark 1992 Indira Sawhney case, Dhavan said reservation is to be based on the concept of discrimination. The apex court allowed a separate plea filed by the Centre which has sought a stay on proceedings initiated in the Punjab and Haryana High Court against the government’s decision to grant 10 per cent reservation to economically weaker sections in jobs and education. On March 11, the apex court had said it was not in favour of passing an order at this stage to refer the petitions to a constitution bench. The court had said it will consider on March 28 whether the matter is required to be referred to a constitution bench. The top court had earlier refused to stay the Centre’s decision to grant 10 per cent quota in jobs and admissions to poor candidates in the general category. However, the court had agreed to examine the validity of the law and issued a notice to the Centre on the pleas. Petitions have been filed by parties, including ‘Janhit Abhiyan’ and NGO ‘Youth For Equality’, challenging the Centre’s decision. One of the petitioners has sought quashing of the Constitution (103rd Amendment) Act, 2019, saying economic criterion cannot be the sole basis for reservation. The petitioner has said the bill violates the basic feature of the Constitution as reservation on economic grounds cannot be limited to the general category and the overall 50 per cent ceiling limit cannot be breached.last_img read more
