All About Rates

All About Rates

Most likely you read the news that the Federal Reserve raised their discount rate by 0.25% this week.

You may not have read the news that average 30-year mortgage rates went down this week.

What gives?! How could this be?!

What you need to know is that 30-year mortgage rates are not directly tied to the Federal Funds rate. Mortgage rates follow the 10-year treasury rate

You also need to know that rates today are essentially half of thier long-term avereage.

The average rate on a 30-year loan today is 3.91%. The 40-year long term average is a little above 7%.

Even though rates are higher than one year ago, they are incredibly low when looking at the long term.

We frequently are asked “when do you think rates will go up?” We made a short video which shows you our answer.

The 1% and the 10%

image

The 1% and the 10%

Did you know that in most Northern Colorado communities, $1,000,000-plus sales make up about 1% of all transactions?

For example, so far this year in Fort Collins, 897 homes have sold and 9 of those were for at least $1,000,000. In Windsor, there have been 274 total sales and 2 over $1,000,000.

But, there is one place that drastically bucks this 1% trend. Can you guess where it is?

Timnath!

In Timnath, roughly 10% of all sales pass the $1,000,000 mark.

Maybe not surprising given that the beautiful Harmony Club community is located there.

To receive a detailed look at the $1 million-plus market, contact me at MeaganG@Windermere.com and I will send you a market report.

Luxury Spotlight

So how’s the luxury market? Let’s look…

Today there are 88 single family homes for sale in Larimer and Weld County priced at $1 Million and above.

Over the last year, 63 of these properties have sold.

This means it would take 17 months to sell all of these luxury properties at the current pace of sales.

Where do most of these sales occur? The most active city is Fort Collins with 18 luxury sales followed by Loveland with 13.

The most active neighborhood in all of Northern Colorado for luxury properties is the Harmony Club in Timnath with 8 sales.

Windermere Real Estate is proud to have represented the most expensive home to sell in Northern Colorado in the last two years – a $2,800,000 property in the Harmony Club which featured a gourmet French Kitchen, reclaimed barnwood floors and handmade peg wood beams.

Contact us to learn more about our Premier Properties program which is custom designed to sell luxury homes.

The Next Boulder?

image

The Next Boulder?

The hottest question we get in Northern Colorado is this “do you think Fort Collins is the next Boulder?”

Let’s look closely at that question and start with what is similar. They are both beautiful college towns nestled against the foothills. They both have affordability issues which push real estate buyers to satellite communities (what is happening in Wellington is not unlike what happened in Louisville).

Yet there are differences at a fundamental level that will forever keep these two places very different from each other. For example, the average Household Income in Boulder is 60% higher than Fort Collins. Here is another big deal: Boulder is only half the size of Fort Collins (25 square miles versus 57 square miles). And get this, the City of Boulder owns 71 square miles of open space in and around the City.

Essentially Boulder is a small island surrounded by an ocean of open space inhabited by very high income-earners. That is why the average price of a single family home in Boulder is now over $1 million.

We put together a short video which shows you more detail about this hot question. You can watch it here:

Love Loveland!

Love Loveland

It’s Valentine’s Day and Loveland Colorado is the place to be.

Loveland has certainly been a hot place to own real estate over the last 5 years. The median price was $192,500 in 2012 and today it is $315,000. That’s a $122,500 increase. We love it!

It also looks like it will be the place to be in the future. One of the many exciting developments on the horizon in Loveland is The Foundry.

The Foundry will revitalize Loveland’s historic downtown. Three empty city blocks will soon transform into a movie theater, apartments, offices, retailers and parking to support the increased traffic coming to the new epicenter of entertainment in downtown Loveland. Exciting stuff!

Loveland and Northern Colorado is one of the Front Range markets featured in our latest real estate report. It is written by our Cheif Economist Matthew Gardner and you can get it by clicking here: The Gardner Report

Limited Choices

imageLimited Choices

Pretend that customer walks into our office and tells us they are looking for a single family home in Fort Collins. We would tell them that there are 314 to choose from. But if they told us their price range is up to $300,000, their choices would be limited to just 10 homes.

Single family homes priced under $300,000 only represent 3.18% of the total inventory in Fort Collins. This is a big reason why buyers are opening up their search to communities that surround Fort Collins.

Here’s a snapshot of the major Northern Colorado markets:

  • Loveland: 176 Homes For Sale/15 Priced Under $300,000
  • Windsor: 151 Homes For Sale/6 Priced Under $300,000
  • Greeley: 98 Homes For Sale/33 Priced Under $300,000
  • Fort Collins: 314 Homes For Sale/10 Priced Under $300,000

What’s important to know is today’s market dynamics create an ideal scenario for the move up buyer to use the equity in their home, leverage the low interest rates, and buy the home of their dreams.

The City Manager for Fort Collins, Darin Atteberry, recently visited our weekly sales meeting. He had several interesting and valuable facts to share, including this…

Based on the City’s research, Fort Collins will grow by 100,000 people over the next 25 to 32 years. That will bring the population to approximately 255,000 people. It means Fort Collins will essentially add the equivalent of Boulder’s population over the next two and a half decades.

100,000 people will require 40,000 housing units. That equates to 1,600 new homes/apartments/condominiums/etc. per year for the next 25 years.

Wow!

Upping the Pace

Upping the Pace

Nationally, the real estate market is on pace for 5.6 million home sales. That is the highest pace we’ve seen since 2007.

A little perspective – 5 years ago the pace was roughly 4.5 million sales and ten years ago it was roughly 6 million sales.

The highest it has ever been is the Spring of 2005 when it topped 7 million sales.

The Trump Tantrum

image

The Trump Tantrum

Since the election interest rates have jumped from 3.77% to 3.95% according to the Mortgage Bankers Association.

“This week’s increase in mortgage rates, being dubbed the ‘Trump Tantrum,’ is the biggest one week increase since the ‘Taper Tantrum’ in June 2013,” said Bankrate’s chief financial analyst Greg McBride.

Economists say the anticipation of Trump’s pledged spending plans and tax cuts have investors anticipating some inflation and a dose of adrenaline to the economy which have caused a great deal of volatility in the market.

A little perspective is in order- rates today are still lower than the 3.97% recorded last year at this time. And, rates today are still essentially half of their long-term average.

Using a $400,000 home as an example with a 20% down payment, this interest rate increase translates to an additional $34 per month.

Many economists believe that we are now seeing the beginning of a long-term rise in interest rates.
