between 11% and 15% higher than that of all homebuyers; however in 2009 the average income spiked to 20% above the average income of all homebuyers an NAHB analysis shows Sign up for eletters today and get the latest how-to from Fine Homebuilding plus special offers A few weeks ago we mentioned that the National Association of Home Builders analysis of government data in the biennial American Housing Survey put first-time homebuyers among the most rapidly growing and increasingly important customer groups for homebuilders That conclusion was bolstered with the release this week of the 2010 National Association of Realtors Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers a survey of sales and demographic trends in real estate (the survey which is available for free to NAR members and for $125 to nonmembers can be ordered at wwwrealtororg/prodsernsf/Research) Although the profile covers data for both existing-home sales and homes offered by builders one of its key findings meshes well with the NAHB analysis: the number of first-time homebuyers rose to 50% of existing-home sales a record in 2010 from 47% in 2009 Its useful to note that the average annual income of new-home buyers $101881 is about 25% higher than the $81623 average income of existing-home buyers and about 20% higher than that of all homebuyers according to the NAHB study And yet even though the study shows that the percentage of new-home buyers relative to existing-home buyers has dropped to 17% in the 2007-2009 period from 21% in the 2005-2007 period the share of first-timers overall during the 2007-2009 period grew to 41% from 35% for 2005-2007 Family connections The NAR study adds a little more background to this first-time buyer profile by noting that many such buyers as they have historically get financial help from a variety of sources: savings (74%) gifts from friends or relatives (27%) loans from friends or relatives (9%) cash from an investment portfolio (6%) The median age of these buyers was 30 the profile shows and when the first-time-buyer tax credit was available their homes averaged 1540 sq ft at a cost of $152000 “It appears" said Paul Bishop NAR vice president of research "more parents were motivated to help their children to take advantage of the homebuyer tax credit and very favorable affordability conditions" The profile also emphasizes the investment value of real estate for buyers whose purchases are not based on speculative strategy Typical sellers in the 2010 profile had been in their previous home for eight years up from the seven years indicated by an NAR profile released in 2009 although first-time buyers said they plan to stay for 10 years Even amid the downturn sellers who purchased a home eight years ago saw a median equity gain of $33000 a 24% increase and those who sold after 11 to 15 years saw a median gain of 40% the 2010 profile showed Get home building tips offers and expert advice in your inbox Written by Kanishka Singh | New Delhi | Updated:

leadership pyramid has been one of the biggest undoings of the party nurtured by former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa When she died O Panneerselvam appeared the natural choice having filled in for Amma many times before While OPS had control of the government Sasikala’s sudden claim to majority of the party’s legislators has clearly caught the CM off guard The protracted tussle between the two for the throne is rooted in the way the party has functioned over the past three decades Both MG Ramachandran and Jayalalithaa ran the party with unprecedented and undisputed control and support from cadre and party delegates WATCH VIDEO |Sasikala Breaks Down While Addressing AIADMK MLAs The handover from MGR to Jayalalithaa was a coup to say the least and Jayalalithaa came on top despite being out of MGR’s inner circles in the last years of his life A similar scenario is unfolding now as Sasikala moves to trump the established leaders elected representatives and office bearers to emerge as their supreme commander Despite seeing a few defections to the OPS camp Sasikala still seems firmly in control of the MLAs holed up in the resort While MGR and Jayalalithaa helped the party flourish they are responsible for the leadership crisis by not letting a second rung take roots The way things are going the AIADMK will continue to be a personality led party The MLAs will line up behind the stronger personality as they are used to being submissive to a strong larger than life leader Without no such leader to look up to it might be tough to keep the flock together Since Jayalalithaa took charge she controlled each and every organ of the party decided on the smallest to the biggest of issues concerning the party and the government and performed admirably in keeping her flock of followers in the party devoted to her She however didn’t groom any successor Maybe a leader growing in stature would have become a source of insecurity Today however is it right to blame the governor for the impending split in the party No The party has brought the situation on itself It is not prudent for the governor to rush into inviting Sasikala to form the government till it is clear what the status within the ruling party is Sadly no one seems to have a clear picture on that For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More
