Summary of March 2016 Lake Havasu Home Sales Report

Do the lower sales and prices mean that the Lake Havasu market is beginning to turn towards the Buyer's favor?  Only time will tell.  What we do know is that it is a great time to buy right now.  The rates on a 30 year fixed-rate mortgage remain below 4%.  The Federal Reserve will be releasing a statement from its most recent meeting later today.  They are not expected to change the benchmark rate.  So, mortgage rates could remain like this for a little while at least.  Their next meeting will be in mid-June.  Contact me when you are ready to start your Havasu home search.
