    Motgage Rates Are The Lowest They've Been In Years, But Will They Stay That Way?

    On Friday, February 28th the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage clocked in at 3.37%, according to daily rate surveys from NerdWallet. This rate was down 38 basis points over the month and was the lowest 30-year rate on record since the survey began in mid-2016. This begs the question – have mortgage rates bottomed out, or will we see another rate drop this year? 

    According to some, rates on home loans are likely to drop even more if the Coronavirus outbreak worsens in the United States. Also, political instability can drive interest rates down, so it’s possible we may see another drop before the election, however given how low rates are today, it’s likely that the fed will increase rates in December. 

    Bottom line – there’s no telling what the future holds and mortgage rates are unpredictable. Today’s rates are the lowest they’ve been in years, and the arrival of spring means the Boston real estate market is about to flood with new listings in every price range. If you’re thinking of buying real estate in Boston this year, lock in a low rate now and start talking to your agent about what you’re looking for. Condos in Back Bay, The South End, The Seaport and other Boston neighborhoods don’t stay on the market long, so getting pre-approved and securing a great rate is the first step to finding a great home.

        Here's What Decreasing Interest Rates Mean for the Boston Real Estate Market

        It was widely anticipated that mortgage rates would increase significantly in 2019, with Freddie Mac predicting that 2019 rates would climb as high as 5.1%, making it prohibitive for many people looking to buy homes and condos in Boston. But this week's 30-year fixed rate is 4.04%, .60 percentage points lower than the 52-week average and the same as the 52-week low. Freddie Mac has since dropped it's 30-year fixed mortgage prediction for the 2019 average to 4.3% and a small jump to 4.5% in 2020. 

        So what does this news mean for those looking to buy condos for sale in Boston? For most buyers, the lower interest rate translates to hundreds of dollars of savings a month, which could give them the flexibility to buy a 2-bedroom Back Bay condo vs. a 1-bedroom, or enable them to live in neighborhoods that meet all of their criteria instead of just some. But it also means more buyers will be flooding the market, so it's important for those looking to buy Boston real estate to work with an agent that can help them put together competitive offers and negotiate the best purchase price.   

        So will the low rates hold steady or will we see a jump in rates over the coming months? We'll find out for sure in a few short days - the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), otherwise known as "the fed," will meet on June 19th, 2019 to release projection materials which contain the potential direction of interest rates in coming years. If it indicates potential rate hikes this year or several of them in 2020, mortgage rates can be expected to rise. If not, rates will likely remain favorable for home buyers throughout the next 18-months.  

        Here are some additional articles that offer useful information about mortgage rates, and the impact the changes will have on those looking to purchase homes or refinance:

          4 Reasons to Buy Boston Real Estate in 2019

          2018 was a competitive year for Boston real estate buyers, and it left many discouraged and resigned to renting. But over the last few months the market has changed, creating new opportunities for those looking for Boston condos for sale. Though interest rates are higher than they were at the start of 2018, there are a number of good reasons 2019 should be the year you buy real estate in Boston. Let's take a look.

          Less Demand for Boston Real Estate

          After several years of virtually unprecedented levels of demand, there's been a shift in the Boston real estate market, and it brings great news for buyers. Just a year ago demand was sky high, creating intense bidding wars and the expectation that buyers would pay significantly more than asking price. As a result, many buyers chose to look outside the city where prices are more affordable, or to continue renting. This buyer exodus has helped right the supply and demand imbalance that's been frustrating buyers for the last two years. 

          An Increase in Mortgage Rates

          Many real estate buyers get wind of rising interest rates and step back from the market. So, in times when rates are expected to increase, like they are projected to in early 2019, the population of buyers drops significantly and the number of days a house stays on the market increases. This environment balances negotiating power for buyers and sellers.  

          New Residential Construction

          Few other cities are seeing the kind of residential development that we're experiencing in Boston. What does this mean for buyers? You've got options, and they're good ones. In order to avoid commoditization, new condo buildings in Boston are distinguishing themselves in a number of ways - unique amenities, high-end features, distinctive designs and proximity to local attractions. Echelon, one of the newest condo buildings in the rapidly expanding Seaport District offers residents two signature outdoor pools and expansive sun decks as well as immediate access to renowned restaurants, recreational options and shopping. Watermark Seaport features a resident lounge with a billiards room and an innovation lab, Metro9 in Somerville has a unique industrial style and a roof deck with an outdoor television, and you can almost guarantee that any new condos in Boston will have state-of-the-art fitness centers, pet amenities and upgrades like stainless appliances, large windows and hardwood floors.  

          Residential Tax Exemption

          If you own a home in Boston, the city offers a residential tax exemption as long as you occupy the property as your principal residence. The exemption gives Boston homeowners a discount on their annual tax bill, essentially cutting the annual tax rate on a $500,000 home in half. Though the exemption isn't a new benefit for home buyers in 2019, it offsets most, if not all or more of the monthly payment increase caused by the recent rise in interest rates.  

          In 2019 buyers can expect to see a greater inventory of Boston homes for sale, and because they will have significantly less competition than previous years, they'll have more negotiating leverage on the purchase price. So if you've been holding off on purchasing real estate in Boston, 2019 is your chance to take advantage of economic factors and changes in the market that will make Boston homes more affordable than they've been in years.
