Long Beach Island Mortgage Update

Rates on 30-year fixed home loans, one of the most popular and most widely used loans in the LBI real estate market, decreased from week-to-week for the first time in 2018. For the week ending March 15, Freddie Mac announced that 30-year fixed rates fell to 4.44% from 4.46% the week before. While it is unlikely that this drop will really impact home buying patterns one way or the other on Long Beach Island, any drop is helpful to hope shoppers. This can have a long term impact on the reduction of a LBI homeowner’s costs. The average for 15-year loans decreased to 3.90% and the average for five-year adjustables rose to 3.67%. A year ago, 30-year fixed rates averaged 4.30%, higher than today’s level. Attributed to Len Kiefer, Deputy Chief Economist, Freddie Mac — “The Consumer Price Index report for last month indicated inflation may be cooling down — as consumer price inflation was 2.2% year-over-year in February. Following this news, the 10-year Treasury fell slightly. Rates on home loans followed Treasurys and ended a nine-week surge. The U.S. weekly average 30-year fixed rate fell 2 basis points to 4.44% in this week’s survey, its first decline this year.” Note: Rates indicated do not include fees and points and are provided for evidence of trends only.
