Merke from Columbia's Town Center.Merke, viewed as a moderate who occasionally challenges decisions of the CA's paid staff, defeated David Berson of Columbia's River Hill village.

Be prepared to adapt to housing-market change David Berson, chief economist for mortgage giant Fannie Mae, put it this way: One of the few immutable laws of economics is that "unsustainable trends eventually come to an end." And the end of the trend is pretty much where we are right now in housing. Ben S. Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, was more opaque. In congressional testimony, Bernanke said that "the downturn in the housing market so far appears to be orderly." In classic Fed-speak, Bernanke managed to simultaneously soothe - and unsettle - his rapt listeners.

Fannie Mae, the largest mortgage company, predicts U.S. sales of existing single-family houses will top 7 million this year for the first time while prices rise by the most in a quarter century as low interest rates fuel demand. Sales will reach 7.03 million, up 3.6 percent from 2004's record 6.78 million transactions, David Berson, Fannie Mae's chief economist, said in a forecast in Washington last week. A month ago, he predicted 6.79 million sales. Home prices will rise 11 percent, Berson said, the biggest jump since a 12 percent gain in 1980.

THIS IS Berson Tyner's first Father's Day as a free man in 10 years. For most of the past decade -- and for several of the years before that -- he was a prisoner in the Maryland correctional system. If he saw his three sons on Father's Day, it was probably in a guarded visiting room, in Hagerstown or Jessup. His oldest, Tavon, is 21. For the first time in his life, Tavon Tyner's father is neither dealing drugs nor living in prison, and he's trying to do the right thing -- work at a legal job, buy a house and hold his family together.

NEW YORK -- An index of mortgage activity offers a glimmer of hope that the nation's sagging market for housing could soon rebound.The index, calculated by the Mortgage Bankers Association of America, measures the volume of applications for loans to buy houses. Since mid-September, it has climbed more than 8 percent, attaining its highest level since May.Economists say the rise reflects consumer enthusiasm about the lowest mortgage rates since the late 1970s.The index, which has been calculated for two years but only recently been made publicly available, generally foreshadows changes in home sales by one or two months.

Housing experts agree: 1996 will be tough to beat.Last year delivered record home sales and stable, relatively low mortgage rates. Consumers took advantage of a buyer's market, buoyed by confidence in the economy and fierce competitiveness among sellers.But little room remains for improvement - or for increased demand from buyers, some economists believe."We are looking for a modestly slower overall economy," said David W. Berson, chief economist for the Federal National Mortgage Association, or Fannie Mae, one of the nation's largest purchasers of home mortgages.
