Huntsville Interest Rates Are Rising

The Fed announced six interest rate hikes in 2022. The question is what will rate hikes mean to the Huntsville real estate market and are we going to see a real estate crash this year? Before we answer that, let’s recap on what created this historic sellers market with both record low inventory and record appreciation.

The Cause

#1 - Housing Deficit

We have a 5.5 million home deficit in this country that dates back to the 2008 housing crash. Builders slowed down the supply of new homes in this country but we continued to have family formations which created that 5.5 million home gap.

Due to this deficit, we now have record low supply of about 800,000 homes nationally. Normal supply is…

Types of Home Loans & Why They Matter

USDA Loan

A USDA loan offers 100% financing with 0% down. This type of loan is used to encourage home ownership in rural areas. Qualification is similar to other home loan programs as based on household income. Unlike other programs, a USDA loan has population requirements for eligible properties. One downside of this type of loan is the underwriting process.

Because of this, these loans can sometimes put a buyer at a competitive disadvantage when there are multiple offers on a given property.

We've heard horror stories from sellers who sold their home quickly but were unable to find their next home because their agent did not advise them on creating a winning strategy on how to buy and sell at the same…
