Are Mortgage Rates Set to Blast Off?

 

Are Mortgage Rates Set to Blast Off

The Fed is expected to raise interest rates for the first time in 10 years and uncertainty hangs over the financial markets and the direction of interest rates. Will this be the first of many rate hikes? Will it have a huge impact on mortgage rates going forward?

Home buyers don’t need to panic, but they should have a sense of urgency if they plan to buy in the next year or so and want to get the most house for their money.

The Past

In early 2000s, following the dotcom bubble, the Fed decreased its benchmark rate to 1 percent. In the summer of 2004, the Fed started hiking the rate by a quarter percent. When the increases started, a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage had an interest rate of 6.3 percent, but instead of going up it went down to 5.7 percent during the next 4 months.

Is Downsizing Right for You?

Depositphotos_12207685_xs (1)

A recent study by market research firm, Edelman Berland showed 1 out of 3 people thinking about selling their homes plan to buy a smaller house in the future.

Why?

Here are a few thoughts from well-known financial expert, Dave Ramsey. Ramsey discusses three financial advantages that can come from scaling down your home.

  • While a smaller home does means you’ll have less space, it also means you’ll spend less time and money on maintaining your home. This usually means a lot less stress.
  • Plus, you can save more money. For example, if you saved $500 a month on your mortgage payment, you’d be able to put $1–1.6 million more in the bank to help support you as you get older.
  • You can also eliminate your mortgage by taking the proceeds from the sale of your old, bigger home and paying cash for a smaller, less expensive one. If that’s not an option, you can at least do a 15-year fixed rate mortgage. You can get about a 3% interest rate with a 20% down payment on your new home. So you could add the $500 you save every month to your new mortgage payment. You could pay off a $200,000 mortgage in just over 10 and half years and save nearly $16,000 with this strategy.

Thinking of Selling? Find out how much your home is worth.

WHY WOULD-BE SELLERS ARE MISSING A PRIME SELLING OPPORTUNITY

Sold Home

A newly-released Homeowner Sentiment Survey found that 23% of current homeowners were thinking about selling their homes, but hadn’t listed them for sale yet.

Why not?

Housing inventory is down nearly 5 percent from this time last year according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Right now, there are 4.8 months of home inventory, which is substantially below  the 6 months of supply indicating a balanced or normal housing market.

Find Out How Much Your Home is Worth. 

Inventory numbers show that the housing market is in the sellers’ favor. So why 1 in 4 homeowners hesitant to list their homes?

Lack of Knowledge

That’s right. It all comes down to being misinformed or misperceiving what is really going on in the housing market.
