LBI NJ Real Estate Mortgage Interest Rate Update
Long Beach Island NJ Real Estate Mortgage Interest Rate Update: For the majority of buyers in the LBI real estate market, a mortgage is necessary to complete the home purchase. One of the most common loans seen for buyers in the Long Beach Island real estate market is the 30 year fixed rate loan which saw a slight drop this past week. Therefore, understanding Long Beach Island mortgage rates is an essential stop to buying a second home or investment property on LBI. This Long Beach Island Mortgage Update can help you to understand how the current real estate market and mortgage market are performing.
Long Beach Island Mortgage Update
Rates rose to their highest level in seven years in the past week. For the week ending May 17, Freddie Mac announced that 30-year fixed rates increased to 4.61% from 4.55% the week before. The average for 15-year loans rose to 4.08% and the average for five-year adjustables was up to 3.82%. A year ago, 30-year fixed rates averaged 4.02%. While the LBI real estate market is less susceptible to interest rates than a primary market, the overall cost of ownership on Long Beach Island will of course play into all buyers minds. This is especially true in the lower price points for single family homes and in the condo market. That said, higher interest rates generally mean the economy is doing well which can prompt more people to buy second homes and investment properties. Attributed to Sam Khater, Chief Economist, Freddie Mac — “Healthy consumer spending and higher commodity prices spooked the bond markets and led to higher rates on home loans over the past week. Not only are buyers facing higher borrowing costs, gas prices are currently at four-year highs just as we enter the important peak home sales season. While this year’s higher rates have not caused much of a ripple in the strong demand levels for buying a home seen in most markets, inflationary pressures and the prospect of rates approaching five percent could begin to hit the psyche of some prospective buyers.” Note: Rates indicated do not include fees and points and are provided for evidence of trends only.
