Experts Say US Won’t See a Housing Bubble Anytime Soon

There’s been much speculation regarding a housing bubble crash. However, current stats and interest rates are telling a different and encouraging story.

Year over year we have seen:

  • 41% less active listings
  • 22% more properties in escrow or under contract
  • 7% average appreciation since July 2019

With historically low interest rates, the housing market continues to grow. The Fields Team has seen clients lock in rates at 2.375% for FHA financing and 2.75% for conventional financing. Right now, a 30 year fixed is 3.03% with a 15 year mortgage rate at 2.51%. It is a fantastic time to buy.

Other important Utah housing market stats include:

  • Home sales are up 10.8% year over year
  • Median days on the market are 18
  • Median sold price has increased year over year

According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, purchase applications for new homes are up 54%.The overall market is on an upswing. What does all this mean?

It means, despite Covid-19, a housing bubble crash is unlikely and 2020 remains a fantastic time to buy a new home or upgrade your current home. Homes are selling quickly and there’s no time like the present to start searching for your dream home.
