Market Update- Interest Rates


Everyone is back from the holidays and we are starting to get back to more normal trading volumes, etc…
Employment number was somewhat of a dis-appointment today and initially market reacted negatively, however ended the day almost unchanged.
Today it looks like we may have seen the end of rates with no points below 5%, however that is always subject to change and a little early to tell starting off the year…many still feel that rates are more likely to rise based upon current economic data and potential rebound in the economy…however housing is still lagging!
Rates for 30 year fixed rates are averaging in the low 5’s…which are still great rates and we just need to keep reminding everyone!
Have a great weekend…

Note: New inventory this past week has shed a high average of distressed or bank owned units. I have noticed a large number of these home this past week in Care One Homes LLC’s (Investment Group we represent) prospect portfolio. Yesterday alone yielded double-digit HUD listings in multiple areas throughout the city.

I am showing several in the Anderson Market Place on Sunday to capture a first hand look at inventory I can familiarize myself with for my clients. I will be sure to report these conditions on our Weekend Review Post this Monday.

Everyone have a great weekend!
