CoreLogic says U.S. home-price gains will accelerate through 2020
CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft said the pace of home-price gains will quicken over the next 12 months as low mortgage rates give buyers the ability to pay more for properties. Home prices probably will increase 5.8% in the 12 months through August 2020, Nothaft said in an exclusive interview with HousingWire. That’s a faster pace than the 3.6% growth seen in August 2019 from a year earlier.

Bryant at Williams Mullen served as counsel to HGI and Steven Fleissig at Greenberg Traurig served as counsel to the seller. "On behalf of Meridian, it was again an honor and privilege to represent Harbor Group International and Cammeby's International Group in negotiating financing for this monumental acquisition. Working in direct coordination with Capital One and Freddie Mac allowed us to secure a combination of fixed- and floating-rate financing that provided optimal flexibility in the short-term while allowing them to achieve their long-term goals for the assets," said Abe Hirsch, Senior Managing Director at Meridian Capital Group.
