Home Prices at 31-Month Peak

January was the fifth straight month of record-setting home prices in the U.S, according to S&P CoreLogic Case-Schiller Indices. The national index rose 5.9 percent in January, hitting its highest point in 31 months. The 20-city index rose 5.7 percent in a three-month period that ended in January, compared to one year ago. In Chicago, January was the eighth consecutive month of price increases that outpaced growth in the prior year. 

 

Mortgage Rates Remain at Favorable Levels for Buyers

After several months of modest increases, mortgage rates fell for the second consecutive week on March 30th, getting closer to 4%. The rate on a 30-year fixed rate declined to 4.14 percent from 4.23 percent the previous week. Rates remain favorable for buyers and are at historic lows, compared to the 7-9% range that was common in the 1990’s.
