Long Beach Island Mortgage Update
Rates on 30-year fixed home loans, the most common loan we see in the LBI NJ real estate market, were stable in the past week. This is good news for the markets generally speaking as the higher interest rates climb for mortgages, the higher the overall carrying and ownership cost will be. For the week ending March 15, Freddie Mac announced that 30-year fixed rates rose one tick to 4.45% from 4.44% the week before. The average for 15-year loans also increased slightly to 3.91% and the average for five-year adjustables rose to 3.68%. A year ago, 30-year fixed rates averaged 4.23%, higher than today’s level. Attributed to Len Kiefer, Deputy Chief Economist, Freddie Mac — “The Federal Reserve raised interest rates — a much-anticipated move that comes as both U.S. and global economic fundamentals continue to strengthen. The Fed’s decision to raise interest rates by a quarter of a percentage point puts the federal funds rate at its highest level since 2008 — a decision which was widely expected. The U.S. weekly average 30-year fixed rate rose only 1 basis point to 4.45% percent in this week’s survey. So far, U.S. housing markets remain resilient in the face of higher interest rates. The National Association of Realtors® reported this week that existing home sales in February increased 3 percent month-over-month on a seasonally adjusted basis and are up 1.1 percent from a year ago.” Note: Rates indicated do not include fees and points and are provided for evidence of trends only.
