Mortgage Rates Moving Up

The Sac Bee had this article today. Of you didn’t know mortgage rates are moving up. However, they are still CRAZY LOW. Rates moved from about 3.25% to 3.80% which is a pretty big move. When I started selling real estate about 10 years ago rates were in the sixes and sevens! Not to mention a lot of people had two loans.

So, prices and rates are moving up. Rates will likely continue to rise slowly till they get back to the 5% range over then next few years. My expectation is that prices will continue to rise albeit tapering off over the next year. And then – a return to normalcy! Yeah!

Sacramento Home Prices Up Almost a Third!

According to this Sac Bee article the median home price in Sacramento County is up 33%!

‘”These eye-popping increases in medians remain a function of two things: home values going up because a lot of people are trying to buy in a supply-constrained market … and we’re seeing a lot more move-up activity,” said DataQuick analyst Andrew LePage’
