It’s been an interesting last few weeks with Real Estate, the Stock Market and Interest Rates!


With the debt ceiling deal in place (thank god), what’s in store for us a country?  See what AP News wrote.  Glad this got put into place as interest rates in just 2 weeks rose .5% and since last month Monday have dropped .25%.  Hope this continues, as interest rates; since December 2021, have climbed 3% and have crippled the real estate and mortgage industry as whole.


Check out the Case Schiller Report.  It shows that in the last 2 months, the home value index rose.  Selma Hepp, the chief economist at CoreLogic, stated that the CoreLogic Case-Shiller Home Price Index reveals unexpected resilience through notable growth in home prices. The spring home buying season has witnessed a stronger influx of buyers compared to sellers, leading to a highly competitive market scenario. The scarcity of available existing homes is compelling buyers to pay more than the listed price, resulting in substantial price increases during the early spring period, surpassing the customary patterns observed during this time.
