How an Expert Can Help You Understand Inflation & Mortgage Rates If you’re following today’s housing market, you know two of the top issues consumers face are inflation and mortgage rates. Let’s take a look at each one. Inflation and the Housing Market This year, inflation reached a high not seen in forty years. For the average consumer, you probably felt the pinch at the gas pump and in the grocery store. It may have even impacted your ability to save money to buy a home. While the Federal Reserve is working hard to lower inflation, the August data shows the inflation rate was still higher than expected. This news impacted the stock market and fueled conversations about a recession. It also played a role in the Federal Reserve’s decision to raise the Federal Funds Rate last week. As Ba...

According to the National Association of Realtors, first-time buyers made up 34% of all home buyers, with Millennials representing the majority of them. Many homebuyers, particularly first-time buyers, are delaying their purchases due to the fierce competition, along with the reality that the majority of publications claim that this is the hottest housing market in decades and that sellers are certainly at an a...

The True Strength of Homeowners Today The real estate market is on just about everyone’s mind these days. That’s because the unsustainable market of the past two years is behind us, and the difference is being felt. The question now is, just how financially strong are homeowners throughout the country? Mortgage debt grew beyond 10 trillion dollars over the past year, and many called that a troubling sign when it happened for the first time in history. Recently Odeta Kushi, Deputy Chief Economist at First American, answered that question when she said: “U.S. households own $41 trillion in owner-occupied real estate, just over $12 trillion in debt, and the remaining ~$29 trillion in equity. The national "LTV" in Q2 2022 was 29.5%, the lowest since 1983.” She continued on to say: “Homeowne...

Home SOLD prices have dropped for the third consecutive month in September (based on contracts) to $440K median and we have returned to a NORMAL REAL ESTATE MARKET with the average listing taking 42 days to close per Arizona Republic real estate reporter, Catherine Reagor in an article dated today September 25, 2022. Reagor reports, "More good news for metro Phoenix homebuyers."...."Valley home prices are on track to fall again in September, after dipping in August and July. But the reprieve for buyers shut out by an overheated housing market during the past few years comes as mortgage interest rates climb to the highest level since 2008.The average rate for a 30-year mortgage climbed above 6% last week, according to Freddie Mac. That’s nearly double the rate from early January.“Higher ...
