Mortgage Rates Steady-to-Higher as Busy Week Begin 
Jun 12 2017, 4:46PM

Mortgage rates were either flat or slightly higher, depending on the lender today.  Movement in underlying bond markets suggested a modest increase in rates, but it came too late in the day for most lenders to respond with a mid-day rate change.  As such, rates SHOULD be slightly higher, all other things being equal.  If bond markets don't change much between now and tomorrow morning, most lenders will be in slightly worse shape.

Today's Top Real Estate News



Image result for beach house photos

Do you dream about living the good life with sand between your toes in one of America’s beach towns?

We have good news: You don’t have to be a millionaire to own a house on the beach — or at least to live within walking distance of the ocean.

While you might not be able to afford a home in the Hamptons or Malibu, there are plenty of beachfront bargain towns with houses within your financial reach, according to Realtor.com.

Realtor.com recently compiled a list of the most — and least — affordable beach towns in the U.S.

In an effort to level the beachfront-bargain playing field, Realtor.com limits its list to a maximum of two towns per state separated by at least 30 miles. Each town has between 1,000 and 100,000 residents. Realtor.com says:

Some of our top picks won’t ring a bell, but that’s a good thing—they’re less likely to be clogged with tourists, hoity-toity neighbors, and overpriced artisanal ice cream cones. In other words, you’re practically guaranteed a peaceful seaside getaway. Possibly one with lots of upside potential on the resale side.
Here are the most affordable beach towns in America by median home price:
  • Atlantic City, New Jersey: $117,500
  • Keansburg, New Jersey: $125,000
  • Gulfport, Mississippi: $154,700
  • Deerfield Beach, Florida: $157,900
  • La Porte, Texas: $193,600
  • Myrtle Beach, South Carolina: $199,000
  • Port Lavaca, Texas: $199,700
  • Daytona Beach, Florida: $199,900
  • Ocean Shores, Washington: $232,500
  • North Bend, Oregon: $239,000

On the flip side, unless you’re among the very rich, you probably can’t afford to live in the following beach towns, which were rated the five most expensive:

  • Malibu, California: $3.95 million
  • Water Mill, New York: $3.75 million
  • Manhattan Beach, California: $3.1 million
  • Nantucket, Massachusetts: $3 million
  • Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina: $2.45 million
