Where Are Mortgage Rates Headed?
Thereâ€™s never been a truer statement regarding forecasting mortgage rates than the one offered last year by Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American:
â€œYou know, the fallacy of economic forecasting is: Don’t ever try and forecast interest rates and or, more specifically, if you’re a real estate economist mortgage rates, because you will always invariably be wrong.â€
Coming into this year, most experts projected mortgage rates would gradually increase and end 2022 in the high three-percent range. Itâ€™s only April, and rates have already blown past those numbers. Freddie Mac announced last week that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is already at 4.72%.
Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at realtor.com, tweeted on March 31:
â€œContinuing on the recent trajectory, would have mortgage rates hitting 5% within a matter of weeks. . . .â€
Just five days later, on April 5, the Mortgage News Daily quoted a rate of 5.02%.
No one knows how swiftly mortgage rates will rise moving forward. However, at least to this point, they havenâ€™t significantly impacted purchaser demand. Ali Wolf, Chief Economist at Zonda, explains:
â€œMortgage rates jumped much quicker and much higher than even the most aggressive forecasts called for at the end of last year, and yet housing demand appears to be holding steady.â€
Through February, home prices, the number of showings, and the number of homes receiving multiple offers all saw a substantial increase. However, much of the spike in mortgage rates occurred in March. We will not know the true impact of the increase in mortgage rates until the March housing numbers become available in early May.
Rick Sharga, EVP of Market Intelligence at ATTOM Data, recently put rising rates into context:
â€œHistorically low mortgage rates and higher wages helped offset rising home prices over the past few years, but as home prices continue to soar and interest rates approach five percent on a 30-year fixed rate loan, more consumers are going to struggle to find a property they can comfortably afford.â€
While no one knows exactly where rates are headed, experts do think theyâ€™ll continue to rise in the months ahead. In the meantime, if youâ€™re looking to buy a home, know that rising rates do have an impact. As rates rise, itâ€™ll cost you more when you purchase a house. If youâ€™re ready to buy, it may make sense to do so sooner rather than later.
Mark Fleming got it right. Forecasting mortgage rates is an impossible task. However, itâ€™s probably safe to assume the days of attaining a 3% mortgage rate are over. The question is whether that will soon be true for 4% rates as well.
Do You Know How Much Equity You Have In Your Home?
Do you know how much equity you have in your home? If you’re a homeowner, your net worth has gotten a big boost. That’s because recent home price appreciation has increased your equity! Here’s what you need to know.
What Is Equity?
Equity is the current value of your home minus what you owe on the loan. It increases when:
- You pay down your loan over time
- Home price appreciation drives up your home’s value
Since this time last year, homeowners have seen RAPID equity growth and that average grew by $55,300.
How does this benefit you?
You can use rising home equity to fuel a move. It may be some (if not all) of what you need for a down payment on your next home! Want to talk about how you can take advantage of this? Contact us today!
