The Federal Funds Rate remains unchanged at 0 to .25%
While the Fed's interest rate decision does not directly impact mortgage rates, today's rates are historically low. Home buyers and home owners can take advantage of these low rates by:
  • Buying a new home
  • Refinancing to get a lower rate or eliminate mortgage insurance
  • Financing home renovations
  • Consolidating debt*
  • Funding major expenses such as education costs
If you have any questions about current rates or home financing, don't hesitate to reach out to me!

Las Vegas home prices set record amid pandemic

The median sale price of an existing home in Southern Nevada hit $335,000 in August, a new record, according to the Las Vegas Realtors trade organization.  The previous record was $330,000, which was set in July. The rising prices have come despite the coronavirus pandemic, which has battered the economy and sent unemployment skyrocketing.  The median price for an existing home last month was up 10% from August 2019, according to the monthly Las Vegas Realtors report.  Townhomes and condos sold for a median price of $185,000 last month, a 5% increase from August 2019. Blanchard said the number of homes for sale remains well below the six-month supply generally considered to represent a balanced market.
