The HPI which includes distressed sales increased by 6.8 percent in April 2015 compared to April 2014.  In March that increase was 5.9 percent, in February 5.6 percent, and in January 5.7 percent.   The April number represents 38 months of annual increases nationally.

"We recently had the opportunity to work with Kim at Midwest Family Lending to purchase a home. The people at Midwest were courteous and friendly. The housing loan was handled in a professional manner. The people were fast and competent. My husband and I had been through some hard times and did not believe that we could get funding for a home. Traditional banks had turned us down, refusing to even work with us. Kim at Midwest Family Lending not only looked at us, but did get us the loan for a home that we can now call our own.
