mortgage interest rates: The TRUTH Behind the RENT vs. BUY Debate - 06/16/17 09:35 AM

The TRUTH Behind the RENT vs. BUY DebateIn a blog post published last Friday, CNBC’s Diana Olnick reported on the latest results of the FAU Buy vs. Rent Index. The index examines the entire US housing market and then isolates 23 major markets for comparison. The researchers at FAU use a “‘horse race’ comparison between an individual that is buying a home and an individual that rents a similar-quality home and reinvests all monies otherwise invested in homeownership.”
Having read both the index and the blog post, we would like to clear up any confusion that may exist. There are three major … (1 comments)

mortgage interest rates: Mortgage Interest Rates Reverse Course in 2017 - 06/08/17 01:55 PM

Mortgage Interest Rates Reverse Course in 2017To start the year, housing experts all agreed on one thing: 2017 was going to be the year we would see mortgage interest rates begin to rise. After years of historically low rates, and an improving economy, the question wasn’t if they would increase but instead how much they would increase. Some thought we could see rates hit 5-5.5% by the end of the year.
However, the exact opposite has happened. Instead of higher rates as we head into the middle of 2017, we now have the lowest rates of the year (as reported by Freddie … (0 comments)

mortgage interest rates: Home Mortgages: Rates Up, Requirements Easing - 04/14/17 04:00 AM

Home Mortgages: Rates Up, Requirements Easing The media has extensively covered the rise in mortgage interest rates since last fall (from 3.42% last September to the current 4.1% according to Freddie Mac). However, a less covered aspect of the mortgage market is that requirements to get a mortgage have eased while rates have risen.
The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) quantifies the availability of mortgage credit each month with their Mortgage Credit Availability Index (MCAI). According to the MBA, the MCAI is:
“A summary measure which indicates the availability of mortgage credit at a point in time.”
The higher the index, the … (2 comments)

The ‘REAL’ News about Housing Affordability Some industry experts are claiming that the housing market may be headed for a slowdown as we proceed through 2017, based on rising home prices and a potential jump in mortgage interest rates. One of the data points they use is the Housing Affordability Index, as reported by the National Association of Realtors (NAR).
Here is how NAR defines the index:
“The Housing Affordability Index measures whether or not a typical family earns enough income to qualify for a mortgage loan on a typical home at the national level based on the most recent price … (0 comments)

What Are the Experts Saying about Mortgage Rates? Mortgage interest rates have risen over the last few months and projections are that they will continue their upswing throughout 2017. What impact will this have on the housing market? Here is what the experts are saying:
Laurie Goodman, Co-director of the Urban Institute’s Housing Finance Policy Center:
“In 1984, 1994, 2000, and 2013, every time we have rate increases, we have increases in nominal home prices. We expect this to be more pronounced, as there is a big demand-and-supply gap at the present time.”

Mortgage Interest Rates Went Up Again… Should I Wait to Buy? Mortgage interest rates, as reported by Freddie Mac, have increased over the last several weeks. Freddie Mac, along with Fannie Mae, the Mortgage Bankers Association and the National Association of Realtors, is calling for mortgage rates to continue to rise over the next four quarters.
This has caused some purchasers to lament the fact they may no longer be able to get a rate below 4%. However, we must realize that current rates are still at historic lows.
Here is a chart showing the average mortgage interest rate over the last several decades.

mortgage interest rates: Thinking of Selling? Why Now is the Time - 01/26/17 12:27 PM

Thinking of Selling? Why Now is the TimeIt is common knowledge that a large number of homes sell during the spring-buying season. For that reason, many homeowners hold off on putting their homes on the market until then. The question is whether or not that will be a good strategy this year.
The other listings that do come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller. Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market in the spring, as compared to the rest of the year? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently revealed the months in which most people listed … (2 comments)

For Jupiter Mortgage Shoppers, Bad News Isn’t Always BadIf you keep track of the ebb and flow of U.S. economic news, you might also be aware of how it relates to some things that happen here. Particularly in the way the Palm Beach County’s mortgage rates have been responding to the ups and downs of announcements from Washington, the cause and effect relationship has settled into a fairly predictable tango. Last month was no exception, with a dip from afar leading to some more good news here.
The less-than-buoyant news from Washington came in the form of what CNBC called a “weak” … (0 comments)

mortgage interest rates: Real Estate Predictions for 2016 Appear to be in Lock-Step - 03/08/16 04:33 AM

Real Estate Predictions for 2016 Appear to be in Lock-StepGiven that the experts have often been as wrong as they were right about predicting at least one real estate trend for 2015 (mortgage interest rates), it’s fair to ask why it’s worthwhile to consult them regarding this year. Fair enough. The answer is twofold.
First off, for anyone who will be buying or selling a Jupiter home in this year, much could ride on the wider market factors that influence buyer and seller attitudes.
The other part of the answer is because it’s fun. Trying to take a peek into the future gathers … (0 comments)
