Mortgage rates are at historically low levels, and according to FreddieMac, they should stay low for a while. That means that more people are able to buy a home in Albuquerque. This has led to more demand for homes nationwide, as well as locally. Homeowners are also taking advantage of this increase in demand to sell their homes.
A FreddieMacreport indicates continued lows into 2021:
“Going forward, we forecast the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage to remain low, falling to a yearly average of 3.4% in 2020 and 3.2% in 2021.”
With mortgage rates this low, the market will keep being driven by home buyers in Albuquerque. FreddieMac reports that home buyers are in the mood to buy a home right now:
“While the rebound in the economy is uneven, one segment that is exhibiting strength is the housing market. Purchase demand activity is up over twenty percent from a year ago, the highest since January 2009. Mortgage rates have hit another record low due to declining inflationary pressures, putting many homebuyers in the buying mood. However, it will be difficult to sustain the momentum in demand as unsold inventory was at near record lows coming into the pandemic and it has only dropped since then.”
Even though people are ready to buy, it’s been harder to find homes for sale. Available homes for sale have been hovering at all-time lows across the nation, as well as in Albuquerque.
