Mortgage Rates Hit 11-Year High
After mortgage rates fell to all-time lows just 15 months ago, for the first time since 2011, mortgage rates have hit the 5% mark, as reported by Freddie Mac in its weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS). By reaching 5%, fixed-rate mortgages (FRMs) were up week-over-week as last week, they averaged 4.72%. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM stood near two full percentage points lower at 3.04%.
“This week, mortgage rates averaged five percent for the first time in over a decade,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “As Americans contend with historically high inflation, the combination of rising mortgage rates, elevated home prices and tight inventory are making the pursuit of homeownership the most expensive in a generation.”…READ MORE
Homebuyer Confidence Continues to Dwindle
The latest iteration of Fannie Mae’s Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI) for March decreased by 2.1 points to 73.2 as rising mortgage rates and the general condition of the housing market pushed consumers to be more pessimistic about the market overall.
“This month, we also saw a survey-high share of consumers expecting their financial situations to worsen over the next year; this was especially true among current homeowners,” said Mark Palim, Fannie Mae VP and Deputy Chief Economist. Palim continued “These concerns, together with the run-up in mortgage rates since the end of 2021, will likely diminish mortgage demand from move-up buyers—and fewer move-up buyers mean fewer available entry-level homes, adding to the rising-rate challenges for potential first-time homebuyers.”
“If consumer pessimism toward homebuying conditions continues and the recent mortgage rate increases are sustained, then we expect to see an even greater cooling of the housing market than previously forecast.”…READ MORE

The Current Miami Springs Market
A GREAT TIME TO SELL!
There are only 7 active listings in the MS/VG market this week. THIS IS THE LOWEST INVENTORY IN HISTORY! It has averaged under 15 listings the last several months, which makes for a very tight market for Buyers. Values remain very, very strong in Miami Springs and Virginia Gardens. There are still many qualified Buyers out there! It is still a Sellers' market. Please refer to the articles posted on our website.
All seven (7) listings are priced over $500,000. Two (2) properties are listed over $1,000,000. One (1) active listing has had a price reduction (0 this week). We remain in a very strong Sellers' market with high demand. More interest rate increases are coming in 2022. We anticipate that inventory will start to increase later this year.
MULTIPLE OFFERS ARE BACK AND LISTINGS KEEP SELLING OVER LIST PRICE!!
Mortgage interest rates have started to increase. There are still serious Buyers looking for the right property. Timing is everything! The demand is high, especially for properties under $500,000. There are no listings under $500,000. This low inventory makes it difficult for most first-time Buyers. Competition from multiple offers is the norm in today's market. No properties are priced between $400,000-$500,000; three (3) between $500,000-$600,000; one (1) between $600,000-$700,000; one (1) between $700,000-$800,000; none (0) between $800,000-$900,000; none (0) between $900,000-$1,000,000; and two (2) are priced over $1 million.
