IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CoreLogic (NYSE: CLGX), a
leading provider of information, analytics and business services, today
released its December MarketPulse report. The monthly publication provides
insight into the health of the U.S. economy with emphasis on housing and
mortgage metrics. CoreLogic Chief Economist Mark Fleming and Principal
Economist Sam Khater, along with colleagues from the CoreLogic Office of the
Chief Economist, authored the articles. This month's edition includes
commentary by CoreLogic President and CEO Anand Nallathambi on the housing
market recovery in the year ahead.


Key findings in the December MarketPulse report include:

  oRental income produced from residential properties increased 12 percent
    year-over-year in September 2012. The rapid growth in rental income is a
    byproduct of fundamental shifts in the housing market, driven by a large
    increase in affordability of investment properties and rising rents.
  oHeading into 2013, the trend in overall rental income will likely reflect
    tightness in the single-family rental market and a continued rise in
    rental demand given weak wage income and job growth.
  oThe real estate cycle is now producing residential investment that is
    contributing to economic growth in line with post-recession history.
  oLenders have returned to more sustainable loan products and remain
    cautious in extending credit to only the most qualified borrowers.
  oOverall market uncertainty can be reduced further by a reduction in
    mortgage risk, investment-driven economic recovery and further clarity on
    housing policies, leading to more sustainable profits and outcomes for
    real estate and housing finance.
