Twin Cities Area Housing Overview

Buyer demand continued to be robust in February, leading to many multiple offer situations as housing supply continues to remain severely constrained in most segments. This imbalance of prospective buyers to available homes for sale will continue to support multiple offers and, with it, higher home sales prices, as we go into the typically busy spring market.

 Mortgage interest rates ticked a bit higher in February but remain below their February 2020 levels. Interest rates may rise a bit further in coming weeks, but according to Freddie Mac chief economist Sam Khater, while there are multiple temporary factors driving up rates, the underlying economic fundamentals point to rates remaining in the low 3 percent range for the year. With rates still at historically low levels, home sales are unlikely to be significantly impacted, though higher rates do impact affordability.

For homeowners currently struggling due to COVID-19, government agencies are continuing efforts to help those in need. The Federal Housing Finance Agency announced they will allow homeowners with loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to receive an additional three months of forbearance, extending total payment relief to up to 18 months. Qualified homeowners must already be in a forbearance plan as of the end of February.

Now is one of the most favorable times in market history to sell a home and purchase a home at near record-low interest rates. The number of homes on the market indicates a 'seller's market' for home prices and low mortgage rates for home buyers. After experiencing the lowest mortgage interest rates, we do not expect a general uptick trend in interest rates in the near future. A slow and gradual rise in interest rates is realistic as the economy continues to improve. If the primary criteria is interest rates, this is the time to buy. Home loan rates continue to hover at all-time lows.
