Every Thursday, Freddie Mac releases the results of their Primary Mortgage Market Survey which reveals the most recent movement in the 30-year fixed mortgage rate. Last week, the rate was announced as 3.01%. It was the first time in three months that the mortgage rate surpassed 3%. In a press release accompanying the survey, Sam Khater, Chief Economist at Freddie Mac, explains:Mortgage rates rose across all loan types this week as the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield reached its highest point since June. The reason Khater mentions the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield is because there has been a very strong relationship between the yield and the 30-year mortgage rate over the last five decades. Here's a graph showing that relationship:The relationship has also been consistent throughout 2021 as ev...

There are many headlines out there that claim were reverting to a more normal real estate market. That would indicate the housing market is returning to the pre-pandemic numbers we saw from 2015-2019. But that's not happening. The market is still extremely vibrant as demand is still strong even while housing supply is slowly returning.Here's the definition of normal from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:conforming to a type, standard, or regular pattern: characterized by that which is considered usual, typical, or routine.Using this definition, here are five housing industry metrics that prove were nowhere near normal.1. Mortgage RatesIf we look at the 30-year mortgage rate chronicled by Freddie Mac, we can see the average rates by decade: 1970s: 8.86% 1980s: 12.7% 1990s: 8.12% 2000s: 6.2...

Nobody likes a small bathroom. Unfortunately, a lot of houses have them. If you live in a home with a bathroom that makes you feel a bit claustrophobic, you might think that there isn’t much you can do without some major (and majorly costly) renovations. This may not be the case, though. There are actually a number of small changes that you can make to your bathroom to make it not only appear bigger, but possibly even give you some more space to work with.Bear in mind that some of these options are a matter of personal taste. You’ll need to think about how these would work with your own personal style preferences. With that said, even if you only use one or two of these suggestions, you may be surprised at how big of a change they can make in your bathroom … all without having to tear d...

Todays housing market is full of unprecedented opportunities. High buyer demand paired with record-low housing inventory is creating the ultimate sellers market, which means its a fantastic time to sell your house. However, that doesn't mean sellers are guaranteed success no matter what. There are still some key things to know so you can avoid costly mistakes and win big when you make a move.1. Price Your House RightWhen inventory is low, like it is in the current market, its common to think buyers will pay whatever we ask when setting a listing price. Believe it or not, that's not always true. Even in a sellers market, listing your house for the right price will maximize the number of buyers that see your house. This creates the best environment for bidding wars, which in turn are more...
