Long Beach Island Mortgage Update

Rates on home loans continued to increase in the past week. For the week ending February 1, Freddie Mac announced that 30-year fixed rates increased to 4.22% from 4.15% the week before. The average for 15-year loans rose to 3.68% and the average for five-year adjustables climbed slightly to 3.53%. A year ago, 30-year fixed rates averaged 4.22%, virtually the same as today’s level. The 30 year fixed rate is a good benchmark to use in the LBI real estate market however we do see a number of other products as well. Adjustable rate loans with a 5 or 7 year term can be a good option for some borrowers to obtain  a lower interest rate for the second home on LBI.  Attributed to Len Kiefer, Deputy Chief Economist, Freddie Mac — “The Federal Reserve did not hike rates this week, but the market views future hikes as a near certainty. The expectation of future Fed rate hikes and increased borrowing by the U.S. Treasury is putting upward pressure on interest rates. The 30-year fixed rate is up over a quarter of a percentage point (27 basis points) from the first week of the year. Rates on 30-year fixed loans have increased for four consecutive weeks and are now slightly above where they were last year at this time.” Note: Rates indicated do not include fees and points and are provided for evidence of trends only. They should not be used for comparison purposes.
