Long Beach Island Mortgage Update

Rates were stable for the second straight week nationwide. This seemed to be the trend in the Long Beach Island NJ real estate market as well. For the week ending July 19, Freddie Mac announced that 30-year fixed rates decreased one tick to 4.52% from 4.53% the week before. This is still a very low rate historically speaking and has not seemed to have any impact on sales in the LBI market. The average for 15-year loans fell slightly to 4.00% and the average for five-year adjustables moved up to 3.87%. A year ago, 30-year fixed rates averaged 3.96%. Attributed to Sam Khater, Chief Economist, Freddie Mac –“Manufacturing output and consumer spending showed improvements, but construction activity was a disappointment. This meant there was no driving force to move rates on home loans in any meaningful way, which has been the theme in the last two months. That’s good news for price sensitive home shoppers, given that this stability in borrowing costs allows them a little extra time to find the right home. Unfortunately, don’t expect much relief from the tight inventory conditions plaguing many markets. Inventory levels on LBI seem to be very low as well as buyers are looking for homes that are just not there! As seen again last month, new home construction is not picking up to meet demand, and as a result, home prices are still rising at double the pace of income growth.” Note: Rates indicated do not include fees and points and are provided for evidence of trends only.
