Chandra Etienne Elected to Lead MIAMI Realtors Young Professionals Network

I had the honor and privilege of being installed as the 2022 Miami YPN President! There is still a lot of work to be done to ensure that our real estate leaders across the country at every level accurately represent the communities that they serve. So, I want to thank @themiamirealtors for giving this young, Black woman born of Haitian Immigrant parents the opportunity to serve as the 2022 President for Miami YPN at the nation's largest local Realtor association, and let’s admit, the best Realtor Association in the world. Although I’m the one on this stage, this is so much bigger than me. So, thank you. 🙏🏾🙌🏾

I look forward to serving alongside the other great leaders who are also installed -  Fernando Arencibia Jr., Brad Westover, Michael D Hinton, Enrique Teran and David Dweck. I’d also like to thank all of our loyal customers, agents, and affiliates for believing in us, my friends and family for supporting me.

It has been an honor, privilege and a blessing to be serving on the Miami YPN board since 2019. Serving alongside other professionals who are just as passionate about our association and our industry as a whole makes this even more of a fulfilling experience! As the 2022 Miami YPN President, the goal is to expand on our national global connections and relationships, improve and develop new educational curriculum and events to help with professional development, and to strategically collaborate with all of the other boards to provide even more value to our Realtor members. Together we are better, and I can't wait to see what our boards and associations accomplish together this year!

New Home Mortgage Applications Increased 31% in U.S.

By David Barley, World Property Journal on May 20, 2021 at 8:15 AM

The latest Mortgage Bankers Association Builder Application Survey for April 2021 shows U.S. mortgage applications for new home purchases increased 30.8 percent compared from a year ago. Compared to March 2021, applications decreased by 9 percent. This change does not include any adjustment for typical seasonal patterns.

"Purchase applications for new homes, unadjusted for typical seasonal patterns, declined in April, but the average loan size increased to its highest level in MBA's survey," said Joel Kan, MBA's Associate Vice President of Economic and Industry Forecasting. "The purchase market remains strong overall, but low housing inventory and accelerating home prices have started to adversely impact purchase activity. Additionally, homebuilders have reported significantly higher input prices, which is contributing to the ongoing rise in sales prices and average loan sizes."

Added Kan, "Adjusting for these seasonal effects, MBA estimates that new home sales in April rebounded from a two-month slump, increasing 8 percent to an annualized pace of 770,000 units. While still strong, this sales pace remains below the 877,000-sales pace seen in the second half of 2020."

MBA estimates new single-family home sales were running at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 770,000 units in April 2021, based on data from the BAS. The new home sales estimate is derived using mortgage application information from the BAS, as well as assumptions regarding market coverage and other factors.

The seasonally adjusted estimate for April is an increase of 7.8 percent from the March pace of 714,000 units. On an unadjusted basis, MBA estimates that there were 72,000 new home sales in April 2021, unchanged from March.

By product type, conventional loans composed 72.9 percent of loan applications, FHA loans composed 15.8 percent, RHS/USDA loans composed 1.0 percent and VA loans composed 10.3 percent. The average loan size of new homes increased from $374,353 in March to $377,434 in April.
