A Measure of this Year’s Coming Market
Interest rates for home mortgages have risen rapidly this year and now stand at around 5%. If you look at interest rates alone – the 2% rise in interest rates we’ve seen so far adds $115 to the monthly payment for every $100,000 you borrow on a 30 year loan. Will this rate hike cool the frenzied market down – time will tell.

Market Happenings
According to the Fort Collins Board of Realtors:
"New Listings were down 2.0 percent for single family homes and 19.1 percent for townhouse-condo properties. Pending Sales landed at 215 for single family homes and 68 for townhouse-condo properties.
The Median Sales Price was up 22.2 percent to $605,000 for single family homes and 14.1 percent to $382,868 for townhouse-condo properties. Days on Market decreased 33.8 percent for single family homes and 34.9 percent for townhouse-condo properties.
Across the country, consumers are feeling the bite of inflation and surging mortgage interest rates, which recently hit 4.6% in March, according to Freddie Mac, rising 1.4 percent since January and the highest rate in more than 3 years. Monthly payments have increased significantly compared to this time last year, and as housing affordability declines, an increasing number of would-be homebuyers are turning to the rental market, only to face similar challenges as rental prices skyrocket and vacancy rates remain at near-record low."
