Today's Best Mortgage Rates
Mortgage Rates Little-Changed Near 4%
Oct 10 2017, 4:07PM

Mortgage rates were marginally lower today compared to last week, but only when factoring in upfront finance charges.  Actual quoted interest rates have been unchanged for more than a week with the average lender quoting conventional 30yr fixed rates of 4.0% on top tier scenarios.

For the bond markets that underlie mortgage rates, it was a three-day weekend, and it showed.  There were no relevant economic reports and very little by way of market-moving news or events.  That will change later this week when we'll receive several important reports, including a key inflation reading on Friday.  

In general, rates have been in a holding pattern at the highest levels in more than 2 months.  The next move is important, because it will either keep 2017's narrow pattern intact or suggest a shift back toward higher rates for the first time since the beginning of the year.

Today's Top Real Estate News 

CoreLogic US Home Price Report Shows Prices Up 6.9 Percent in August 2017

  • National Home Prices Projected to Increase 4.7 Percent by August 2018
  • Utah and Washington Continue to Post Double-Digit Annual Home Price Increases
  • Las Vegas Home Prices Increase 8.4 Percent Year Over Year, Highest Among Large Metros
CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provide,  released its CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI) and HPI Forecast for August 2017, which shows home prices are up strongly both year over year and month over month. Home prices nationally increased year over year by 6.9 percent from August 2016 to August 2017, and on a month-over-month basis, home prices increased by 0.9 percent in August 2017 compared with July 2017,* according to the CoreLogic HPI.

Looking ahead, the CoreLogic HPI Forecast indicates that home prices will increase by 4.7 percent on a year-over-year basis from August 2017 to August 2018, and on a month-over-month basis home prices are expected to increase by 0.1 percent from August 2017 to September 2017. The CoreLogic HPI Forecast is a projection of home prices using the CoreLogic HPI and other economic variables. Values are derived from state-level forecasts by weighting indices according to the number of owner-occupied households for each state.

"While growth in home sales has stalled due to a lack of inventory during the last few months, the tight inventory has actually helped stabilize price growth," said Dr. Frank Nothaft, chief economist for CoreLogic. "Over the last three years, price growth in the CoreLogic national index has been between 5 percent and 7 percent per year, and CoreLogic expects home prices to increase about 5 percent by this time next year."
In an analysis of the country’s 100 largest metropolitan areas based on housing stock, 34 percent of cities have an overvalued housing stock as of August 2017, according to CoreLogic Market Conditions Indicators (MCI) data.

 The MCI analysis categorizes home prices in individual markets as undervalued, at value or overvalued by comparing home prices to their long-run, sustainable levels, which are supported by local market fundamentals such as disposable income. Also as of August, 27 percent of the top 100 metropolitan areas were undervalued and 39 percent were at value. When looking at only the top 50 markets based on housing stock, 46 percent were overvalued, 16 percent were undervalued and 38 percent were at value. The MCI analysis defines an overvalued housing market as one in which home prices are at least 10 percent higher than the long-term, sustainable level, while an undervalued housing market is one in which home prices are at least 10 percent below the sustainable level.

“Nearly half of the nation’s largest 50 markets are overvalued,” said Frank Martell, president and CEO of CoreLogic. “The lack of real estate affordability has spread beyond the typically expensive coasts into the interior of the nation, hitting cities such as Denver, Nashville, Austin and Dallas.”
