Weekly Market Report

For Week Ending May 22, 2021

A new analysis from Realtor.com® found that 20% of home sales nationwide in the first two months of this year were purchased in cash, up about 5% from a year ago. The substantial increase in cash buyers can be partially attributed to the competitiveness of the housing market, where a cash offer can help a buyer’s offer stand out from competing offers. Meanwhile, for buyers that do need to finance their purchase, mortgage rates on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged just 3% last week.

Despite elevated demand for housing, construction of new homes fell in April, with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Census Bureau reporting a 9.5% decrease in housing starts from the previous month. Rising building costs continue to hinder affordability and inventory for many homebuyers, although shortages in labor, issues with the U.S. supply chain, and lasting impact from late winter storms have also contributed to the decline in new construction activity, putting some projects on pause for the time being.

Weekly Market Report

For Week Ending April 24, 2021

A bit of good news this week on the home affordability front as the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage slipped below 3 percent to 2.97%, according to Freddie Mac. The benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate, while still higher than a few months ago, remains more than one third of a percent less than the same time last year. The slight pullback in rates may be short lived, however, as Nadia Evangelou, senior economist for the National Association of REALTORS®, still expects rates to rise in the coming months.
