The Kevin Martini Angle on Raleigh Real Estate and Mortgages | Martini Angle | June 2018

The Kevin Martini Angle on Raleigh real estate and mortgages is published once a month and this is the June 2018 Edition.  This is a comprehensive walkthrough of the most up-to-date information regarding the real estate in the Triangle of North Carolina and mortgage markets published by Raleigh mortgage lenders that care.  

It is undisputed that Raleigh home loan rates were less expensive during the beginning of the year and now they are more expensive and the experts believe that by the end of the year home loan rates will be even higher.  Now even with the move in mortgage rates year-to-date and the projected increase they will still be in record historic low territory.  Raleigh mortgage rates are not the only that are moving higher, so are home values!

According to CoreLogic, year-over-year home values in the U.S. rose 7%.  For the same period, North Carolina home values increased 4.7%.  This means, if the right thing for you and your family is to purchase a home this year, buying sooner rather than later could lead to substantial savings.

Again, some have concerns that higher Raleigh home loan rates will mean disaster to the home values.  Will higher interest rates have an impact on home values is not a concern based on history. The June 2018 Edition of the the Martini Angle will address what has happened the last 6 times in recent history to home values with an interest rate spike of at least 1%.  Let me provide a sneak-peak:  50% of the times home loan rates increased 1% or greater, home values increased double digits.
