Rising Home Prices Buoy Underwater Mortgages

A historically small national inventory of new homes, sluggish foreclosure proceedings and a slow-to-recover homebuilding industry are driving home prices up across the U.S. Increasing values of homes means that an increasing number of home owners "upside down" on their mortgages are finding themselves right-side-up for the first time in years.

Experts Project Green Building Spending to Increase Through 2017
Growth in homebuilding and general construction activity will be buoyed continuing consumer interest in green building products (like permeable pavers, pictured), increasing their market share relative to non-green alternatives. The latest version of LEED will include a life cycle analysis of building materials used in projects up for certification, increasing the spotlight on sustainable, durable materials.

BIA Award Spotlight:
Ogden International School

Project designers Nagle Hartray Architecture (with associate architects Schroeder Murchie Niemiec Gazda-Auskalnis) specified clay brick veneer on the exterior and interior of Chicago's Ogden International School.

Shadow Inventory Still Waning
The housing market's "shadow inventory" of properties that are seriously delinquent, in some stage of foreclosure, or lender owned real estate (REO) continues to shrink. Higher home prices, lower overall inventories and growth in new and existing home sales are reducing the backlog. According to a January 2013 report from CoreLogic, 2.2 million homes now qualify for the shadow inventory, 28 percent less than the high point in January 2010.

E-15 Gasoline Burning Out?
E15 is a mixture of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline, approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for model year 2001 and later cars and light trucks. If used in small engine equipment like chainsaws or boats, however, E15 can damage engines or eventually cause them to fail, potentially voiding warranties in the process. To protect small engine manufacturers, the Engine Products Group has raised multiple legal challenges to the EPA's plans to distribute E15.
