Housing Market Trends


Family looking at house

If you are in the market to buy a home, then you'll want to consider the current housing market trends.  Here are just a few market trends to consider.

Mortgage Rates Continue to Fall

Since January 2019, mortgage rates have been on a steady decline, falling from 4% to 3.5%.  It is a great opportunity for new home buyers to take advantage of these low rates. According to FreddieMac, a government-owned corporation that buys mortgages, homebuyers have continued to take advantage of multi-year low rates, with both refinancing and purchases.

Home Prices Are Continuing to Rise

Recently, there has been a lot of discussion about an upcoming economic slowdown.  However, a recent report by CoreLogic, a property information and data provider, paints a more optimistic picture on the future of the housing market.  According to the report, home prices and rents have continued to grow since June 2009.  Through May 2019, home prices increased a cumulative 50% and single-family rents increased 33% in the United States.
