Long Beach Island Mortgage Update

If rates keep rising to break the 5% barrier, most homebuyers will go right ahead with their purchase anyway. The reality is that while the overall costs of owernship in the LBI real estate market will increase with a higher interest rate, it is most likely not the deciding factor between buying a second home or not buying a second home.  Just 6 in 100 prospective homebuyers surveyed by Redfin said they would halt their planned home purchase if rates were above 5%, although a further 27% would slow their search. A quarter of respondents said that a 5% rate would make no difference to their plans, 1 in 5 would speed up their search and a similar share would look to cheaper neighborhoods or a smaller property. It is important for those looking in the LBI real estate market that these are national statistics. While they do have merit for home prices on Long Beach Island, it is a fair assumption that the personal financial situation for buyers on Long Beach Island may be different from many of the respondents.  Three quarters of respondents nationwide thought home prices would continue rising in 2018, and 25% said they thought the increases would be significant. “Tight credit, lack of inventory and high demand are the major factors that tell us there’s no housing bubble, despite rapid price increases,” said Redfin chief economist Nela Richardson. “There are still many more buyers than the current housing supply can support, with no major relief in sight. Strict lending regulations make it much harder to buy a house you can’t afford than during the housing boom a decade ago. Finally, still-low interest rates somewhat offset high prices for some buyers.” Source: Redfin
