Washington Housing Market “Strong”?
Mixed signals from the Washington State housing market. Statewide home sales dropped 12.5% from the first to second quarter of 2006.
But the median sales price has jumped almost 15%. The climbing prime interest rate has most likely caused the slowing sales market.
The Federal Reserve usually raises the interest rate to fight inflation say some analysts. In some markets, a higher interest rate and slowing sales have forced homeowners to slash prices.
There was an increase in home equity and second mortgage loan applications, while refinance applications were down.
But a quick look at the Washington State figures and seems homeowners have done the opposite. The Washington Center for Real Estate Research reports the median sales price in the state has jumped from $280,200 to $293,000 during the first two quarters. Even as the prime interest rate has climbed almost one point during the same period. Every borrower who has a line of credit or an adjustable rate second mortgage is affected by the Fed raising this rate. Each time the Fed increases the rate, these second mortgage payments go up as well.
Research center director Glenn Crellin at Washington State University, said that, “While some parts of the country are reporting substantially fewer sales and significantly increased inventories of homes available for sale, here in Washington the market is flat and inventories are very modestly improved. The market remains very strong.”
Washington State’s so-called strong market could result from less new construction. One report shows the major metropolitan areas already congested with homes, slowing new home construction and forcing home seekers to purchase pre-existing homes. Higher interest rates also affect builder loans. In Washington State’s case, less new construction and higher home prices could keep their market in favor of the seller.
