Will interest rates rise in 2014? If so will it change your price range and what you are looking for in a home?

Interest rates have been on my mind this week. I have read several articles about where various agencies are projecting interest rates will go in 2014. Will they go up, go down, stay where they are? It seems the majority are projecting a significant increase in rates by year end.

Keeping Matters Current, a website and blog for real estate professionals, compiled the  top agencies’ projections. With the current interest rates at 4.25% for a 30-year fixed FHA loan and 4.5% for a 30-year fixed conventional loan, rates are projected to be as follows by 4Q14:

Fannie Mae – 4.8%
National Association of Realtors 5.3%
Freddie Mac – 5%
Mortgage Bankers Association – 5.3%

KMC feels that these projections are conservative and rates may climb closer to 6% by year end. While 6% isn’t awful, that coupled with rising average home prices can impact what a home buyer can afford or feels comfortable committing to.
I think this chart conveys it best.

interest rates and home prices

*Avg Sales price as per National Association of Realtors
** Freddie Mac 30 year Fixed Rate
*** Principal and Interest
Graph from kcm.com

In this example a $16,600 increase in average sales price, along with less than a 1% interest rate increase, can raise a mortgage payment approximately $208 a month! That can really change a buyer’s price range.

When the housing market took a tumble a few years ago, one of the hardest hit areas was new construction. Buyers stopped requesting new

The Providence Group

New home construction spikes in South Forsyth.

custom homes because they were having trouble selling their existing homes. Builders stopped building spec homes, because it became apparent no one was buying and particularly not at the prices they needed.

As the housing market gained significant momentum over the past year, the new home market also took off. The Providence Group, a new home builder in the greater Atlanta area, as well as the Lowcountry, announced last week that they have sold 80 new homes during 2013 in their Jamestown community in Alpharetta!

Not only is this a great community concept, but it is unique in its location. It is  near Windward with an Alpharetta address, yet part of South Forsyth county not Fulton. South Forsyth has had a huge boom this year as we’ve talked about here and here. So the combination of the growth in Forsyth county and the growth in new construction was ideal for the Jamestown neighborhood. Many new home communities are pre-selling and find themselves with wait lists. This is a great problem to have compared to previous years.

We talk a lot on here about selling your existing home and buying pre-owned homes and The Cueny Team certainly can help you do either of those things, but we are also experts in helping you find a new home if that is what you have in mind. Call us today!
