Rodney Forbes with Forbes Realty of South Florida in West Palm Beach has some great news for homebuyers. Read below courtesy of Associated Press:

Average long-term U.S. mortgage rates slid this week to their lowest level since February 2015, luring prospective purchasers during the spring home-buying season.

Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage fell to 3.59 percent from 3.71 percent last week. The benchmark rate was far below the 3.66 percent level it marked a year ago.

The average rate on 15-year fixed-rate mortgages declined to 2.88 percent from 2.98 percent last week.

No one knows how long these low rates will last, so if you’ve been on the fence about purchasing this may be the perfect time. Home prices in Palm Beach County has started to level off, adding more good news for people considering buying a home.

A recent speech by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen reaffirmed the Fed’s plans to move slowly in raising the interest rates it controls. That prospect has tamped down mortgage rates.

To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country at the beginning of each week. The average doesn’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount.

The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee for a 15-year loan also held steady, at 0.4 point.

Rates on adjustable five-year mortgages averaged 2.82 percent this week, down from 2.90 percent last week. The fee remained at 0.5 point.

Potential homebuyers should contact Forbes Realty of South Florida at 561-337-4810 or email to info@forbesrealtyonline.com

imagesCASPYU96As Rodney Forbes, managing broker at Forbes Realty of South Florida, has been predicting for years, despite the real estate downturn over the past few years, the population of Florida is continuing to grow. Florida is now the country’s 3rd most populated state (trailing only California and Texas). Read the article below courtesy of RealtyTrac:

“A rising number of Americans are heading to southern states, lured by a combination of warmer weather, affordable housing, lower taxes and less congested cities, according to a new report published by RealtyTrac called “The Next Great Migration of ‘Housing Refugees’ On the Move.”

New census data confirm the findings. Since 2014 alone, more than 1.4 million people have moved to the Sun Belt, mostly from the Northeast and Midwest, according to Census Bureau data.

That marks a stark difference to previous mobility trends. For more than a century, Americans predominantly headed west to cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Seattle. But lately, that migration trend is taking a turn south.

“This 20th century movement west, which has dominated American demographic patterns for decades, may now be reversing itself in the 21st century as rising housing costs, stagnant job creation, restrictive land-use laws and no-tax states pull Californians, Midwesterners and Northeasterners eastward and southward to less costly regions and more business-friendly states in the Sun Belt,” RealtyTrac’s report notes.

Americans are fleeing pricey coastal states like California and New York and heading to states considered more affordable, such as Texas, Florida, and the Carolinas, according to a recent United Van Lines report.

During the Great Recession, populations in the Sun Belt saw a decline, but now analysts are saying there’s a renewed “Snow Belt-to-Sun Belt migration pattern,” says William H. Frey, a demographer and senior fellow at The Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C.

Florida is especially feeling a heat wave of new residents. For the first time in nearly a decade, Florida added more people than California between July 2014 and July 2015, according to Census Bureau data. That helped Florida emerge as the third most populous U.S. state, jumping ahead of New York (and following California and Texas).”

Forbes Realty of South Florida is based in Palm Beach County and has been helping new residents relocate since 2006. Contact our office if you’d like more information on moving to the Sunshine State. Call 561-337-4810 or visit our real estate website at www.SearchWestPalmBeachHomes.com
