Mortgage rates still flat at 2.86% The average 30-year-fixed mortgage continued to hover around the 2.86% mark for the week ending Sept. 16, according to Freddie Mac‘s latest PMMS survey. Mortgage rates have been around that mark for roughly two months, leading economists at Freddie Mac to liken it to “Groundhog Day.” “The holding pattern in rates reflects the markets’ view that the prospects for the economy have dimmed somewhat due to the rebound in new COVID cases,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “While our collective attention is on the pandemic, fundamental changes in the economy are occurring, such as increased migration, the extended continuation of remote work, increased use of automation, and the focus on a more energy efficient and resilient economy. These factors will likely lead to significant investment and new post-pandemic economic models that will spur economic growth.” According to Freddie Mac, the 30-year-fixed-rate mortgage was down slightly from last week’s 2.88% (with an average of 0.7 points). It averaged about 2.87% a year ago. The 15-year-fixed-rate mortgage averaged 2.12% last week, a slight decline from the prior week’s 2.19%. A year ago, the average 15-year-fixed-rate mortgage was 2.35%. Mortgage rates have struggled to reach 3% for much of 2021, despite widespread expectations they’d be in the mid-3s or higher by the third quarter. The Federal Reserve continues to make monthly asset purchases, driving the cost of lending down. Although the central bank previously signaled that by November it would at least begin to taper its $120 billion in monthly purchases of U.S. Treasury bonds and mortgage backed securities, the rise in COVID Delta variant cases has cast made that scenario much less likely.

Reasons to Sell Your House As-Is    If you are thinking about selling your home, you may only see headaches ahead. You may face a long list of improve

Reasons to Sell Your House As-Is If you are thinking about selling your home, you may only see headaches ahead. You may face a long list of improvements you'll need to make before your house can even go on the market. Save a Considerable Amount of Money Making repairs to your home is going to place a burden on your bank account. You'll be shelling out money in hopes that you'll improve your chances of making a sale. Many homeowners can't believe the hoops they have to jump through to try and get their house out of their hands. You Can Price Your Home to Move When you sell your home as-is, you can be more flexible with the price. Investing money on improvements means you are going to have to set a higher asking price in the real estate market. Let Buyers Make Your Home Their Own A buyer is going to have a vision of what their home should look like anyway. When they walk into your house, they may have a vision of what the interior will look like when they are done that's completely different from what it looks like now. There's a good chance they will make changes regardless of what you do to your home. Keep your money in your pockets and give buyers a low enough price to allow them wiggle room for any renovations they want to make. Cash Buyers Want Your House Many companies offer cash deals on homes in a sales process that are fast and easy. Their main goal is to get your home at a lower price so they can give it a facelift. They'll turn around and sell it for a profit. If you don't feel like throwing your hat into the real estate ring, this could be the solution for you.

Remote Workers Are Transforming Housing Markets    emote work since the pandemic has fueled the flexibility for Americans to leave larger cities near

Remote Workers Are Transforming Housing Markets emote work since the pandemic has fueled the flexibility for Americans to leave larger cities near job centers and move elsewhere to farther-out locales. “They can live and work anywhere, and that’s what they’re doing,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, told Barron’s. They’re flocking to midtier cities nationwide, leading to a surge in home and rental price in these areas. For example, in Boise, Idaho—one locale seeing a jump in remote workers’ relocating—saw its median home price surge 41% compared to a year earlier. The median sold home price is $469,100 there. Home prices rose by more than 35% compared to a year ago in the second quarter in pockets across the country, such as the Gulf shores of Florida to Idaho’s Treasure Valley and Massachusetts’ Berkshire County, according to National Association of REALTORS®’ data. All three of these locales have a higher-than-average share of out-of-state views of their real estate listings. The pandemic accelerated migration to more affordable areas from pricey city centers, Zandi told Barron’s. When employees do have to return to work in person, more Americans say they’re fine with having a longer commute too. Sixteen percent of consumers said they’re willing to have a longer commute now; 22% of millennials said they’d be willing to extend their commute, according to a realtor.com® survey. Some remote workers are showing willingness to live further than just the suburbs or exurbs of the metro area where they currently reside. For example, West coasters are showing a greater desire for areas in Boise and Las Vegas. New Yorkers are increasingly hunting for listings in Miami and Tampa. In Washington, residents are looking at Baltimore and Philadelphia.

Not sure what Loan is best for you? Let’s Talk!! * FHA Loan: A Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loan is a mortgage that is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and issued by an FHA-approved lender. FHA loans are designed for low-to-moderate-income borrowers; they require a lower minimum down payment and lower credit scores than many conventional loans. * Conventional Loan: A conventional loan is a mortgage loan that's not backed by a government agency. ... Conforming conventional loans follow lending rules set by the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac). #newjerseyrealestate #mortgage #njhomesforsale #investing #newhomebuyer #homeowership #njhomesforsale #njrealtor #realtor #fhaloan #conventionalloan #prosandcons #bergencountynj #letstalk

IMPORTANT: What the bank says you can afford may not be what you can afford. Committing too much of your monthly income to mortgage payments is risky and it's a bad idea. You only want to spend up to one-third of your monthly income on housing costs.

Layering Pattern on Pattern for a Vibrant Interior Combining colorful patterns in a single room isn’t one of the most manageable tasks in decorating. Use Classic, Enduring Patterns “Balance is hugely important and the key to any room full of pattern. If nothing in the room shouts louder than anything else, then your eye will not be drawn to any one particular feature and the space will not feel busy. Vary the Scale of Patterns “We love mixing stripes of varying scale with simple yet bold geometric companions. We are also fans of mixing conservative- and traditional-leaning patterns with bolder, more contemporary complements. Dress up the Ceiling “Blending patterns and colors can add rich texture to a room, but there needs to be harmony between them. Use colors that have the same hue and intensity. For instance, don’t mix pastel patterns with jewel-tone patterns. Choose tone-on-tone patterns which give a room depth, texture and character.“Create visual balance. Keep your patterns flowing around the entire room––you want your eye to travel around the space. Think of the room in layers, each layer should complement the next, pulling the overall concept together. Create Moments With Lighting “If you’re worried about your pattern mixing getting out of hand or just don’t know where to begin, I always suggest selecting patterns that don’t directly compete with each other. For example, it would be really hard for a Southwestern stripe to feel at home with a romantic toile. You want balance and variety, but you also want the patterns to feel like they would hang out in the same crowd.

Top 4 Upgrades You Should Make Before Listing Your Home One of the biggest things that you can do to sell your home is make it stand out, and that can be done by upgrading your home. Update Your Cabinets It can be expensive to replace your cabinets, so instead, give them a makeover. Regardless of where they are in your house, they could always benefit from a fresh coat of paint or updated cabinet handles. Paint Your Front Door Due to harsh outdoor elements, the color of your front door is going to fade and the paint will peel over time. This means it might be time to give your front door a fresh touch up. By painting your front door, you can refresh your home's front-facing exterior and increase curb appeal. Add Storage Potential buyers want to make sure they have enough room for everything when they move in. That is why it's important for you to add storage to your home. There are several ways you can add storage. For example, you can put shelves in a blank space or you can add a long vanity to your bathroom. Upgrade Kitchen Appliances and Countertops If there's only one area of your home that you can afford to splurge on, choose the kitchen. This is one of the main areas that prospective buyers will pay attention to when they view your home. Installing new appliances will not only look better but also be more energy efficient, which will attract more buyers. You can also install new countertops, choosing from a variety of materials like marble, limestone or granite. An upgraded countertop will make your kitchen stand out and better fit the color scheme of the space. It also wouldn’t hurt to install new lighting in your kitchen. Upgrading to more modern appliances also helps save money by saving energy.

Home Equity Hits Record High    Housing equity surged nearly 40% compared to a year ago and is at a record high, according to a new report from Black

Home Equity Hits Record High Housing equity surged nearly 40% compared to a year ago and is at a record high, according to a new report from Black Knight, Inc. The average mortgage holder now has $173,000 in equity. That marks an increase of $20,000 just from the end of the first quarter, the report notes. The increase in equity is being driven by surging home values over the last quarter, says Ben Graboske, Black Knight data analytics president. Home prices have jumped nearly 20% from a year earlier and by 7.4% in the second quarter alone, he notes. “This is by far the strongest growth we’ve ever seen,” he says. The added equity is helping those who are struggling to make their mortgage payments. About 98% of homeowners in forbearance now have at least 10% of equity in their homes, according to Black Knight. “Such strong equity positions should help limit the volume of distressed inflow into the real estate market as well as provide strong incentive for homeowners to return to making mortgage payments—even if needing to be reduced through modification,” Graboske says.
