Market Snapshot

Months Supply

What is Month’s Supply? Months of supply is the measure of how many months it would take for the current inventory of homes on the market to sell, given the current pace of home sales. For example, if there are 50 homes on the market and 10 homes selling each month, there is a 5 month supply of homes for sale.

Months of supply is a good indicator of whether a particular real estate market is favoring buyers or sellers. Typically, a market that favors sellers has less than 6 months of supply, while more than 6 months of supply indicates an excess of homes for sale that favors buyers.

  • # of Homes on the Market: 2,256
  • # of Homes selling each month: 287
  • Month’s Supply: 7.9

Interest Rates

“Last call for super-low mortgage rates? At its latest meeting, the Federal Reserve signaled that it’s about to cut the amount of bonds it buys each month, and that it also could begin to raise interest rates as early as next year.

The mortgage market interpreted that news as the beginning of the end of super-cheap mortgage rates. In the week after the Fed’s Sept. 22 meeting, the average rate on a 30-year mortgage jumped 12 basis points, to 3.17 percent, according to Bankrate’s national survey of lenders.

Will this latest run-up in rates last? No one knows that answer for certain. But housing economists and market watchers generally agree that a variety of factors — including inflation, the economic recovery and the Fed’s pace of bond buying — are lining up to nudge rates higher.

For the millions of homeowners who have yet to lock in historically low interest rates by refinancing, that money-saving opportunity soon might fade away. “It’s more likely that rates will go up than down,” says Isaac Hacamo, an assistant professor of finance at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. “If you haven’t refinanced in the past few years, I would do it now.” Read More
