For now, top-yielding online savings accounts and one-year CDs are paying more than 5% — well above the rate of inflation. "Money market brokerage accounts usually pay higher rates than money market or savings accounts at banks," he said in an emailed statement. "Timing your purchase to coincide with lower rates can save money over the life of the loan," Tayne said. However, lower mortgage rates could also boost home-buying demand, which would push prices higher, McBride said. "If lower mortgage rates lead to a surge in prices, that's going to offset the affordability benefit for would-be buyers."

"It can be a good way to get into the property market," she said, especially if you live in a city where home prices are out of your budget. About 55% of small-portfolio rental owners hire a property manager because they don't live near their rental property, according to the State of the Property Management Industry Report by Buildium, a property management software company. However, hiring a property manager comes at a cost, which depends on factors such as the property location and services provided. Property manager fees can reach up to 25% of the monthly rent price, depending on the specifications, according to Apartment List. That's good news for renters, "but not good news if you're a property owner," said Fairweather.

A double whammyFor aspiring homebuyers such as Burress, the combination of high mortgage rates and rising list prices has left them feeling boxed out. The 30-year mortgage rate, a popular option for home financing in the U.S., has bounced around 7% for the past several months. Given this, co-author Jonah Coste said current owners touting these low mortgage rates are undoubtedly better off than those looking to buy a first home today. After welcoming three kids, they're holding off on a fourth until mortgage rates or home prices come down enough to upsize. To be clear, mortgage rates tend to follow the path of Fed-set interest levels, but they aren't the same thing.

Roberto Schmidt | AFP | Getty ImagesIt's no secret that the housing market looks far different than it did a few years ago. While surging mortgage rates and housing prices have taken away consumers' purchasing power, low supply has kept the market competitive. A higher rate, in reality, results in more interest due on a home loan. Housing prices are also central to the equation for everyday Americans decision how much, or if, they can afford to spend. One from the National Association of Realtors found affordability tumbled more than 33% between 2021 and 2023 alone.

Read previewHomeownership is helping some millennials get rich — but Gen Zers might have a hard time following in their footsteps. Some Gen Zers managed to get in on the fun — about a quarter of Gen Zers between the ages of 19 and 26 owned a home as of 2023, per Redfin. AdvertisementWhat's more, Silk said there's a larger reason Gen Zers shouldn't count on homeownership to boost their wealth. AdvertisementThese costs are already putting pressure on current homeowners, and by the time more Gen Zers buy homes, they could be even more burdensome. Their monthly payment is gone forever, and it has zero chance of providing an investment return.

All throughout African American history, leaving has been a form of refusal — something Black people have done in response to White supremacy for centuries. Flight is one of the most common actions in the history of Black resistance. Everything in the South depended on enslaved labor. Cities were already fragile from White flight: White families that were not interested in integration left cities for the suburbs decades earlier, in the 1940s and 1950s. But in America, as a Black American, what is home?

On average, US homeowners pay $18,118 per year on hidden costs, according to Bankrate. Rising home prices and inflation have driven hidden costs up 26% in the last 4 years. These 5 states have the highest hidden homeownership costs. AdvertisementRapidly rising home prices and high mortgage rates already make buying a house hard enough in today's market.

The land below many U.S. cities is sinking, including New Orleans, New York City, Miami and south San Francisco. This phenomenon, known as land subsidence, can severely affect the integrity of buildings and infrastructure. Problems associated with land subsidence can cost U.S. homeowners 6% of their home value. Their research focused on the Central Valley of California, but Nemati said the findings could be extrapolated nationwide. Consumers are likely to see the effect of land subsidence directly, in the form of problems with their home, and indirectly, in the form of issues for their local economy.

Supply and DemandThe case for housing deregulation starts with Econ 101: Allowing builders to significantly increase housing supply leads to much lower prices. It isn’t rising demand, as the U.S. population rose even faster back when housing prices were roughly stable. Standard of LivingWhat would happen if homebuilders could once again freely build until housing prices were driven back down to cost? The admittedly small number of studies on the link between YIMBY and babies support common sense: Less regulation lowers housing prices, and lower housing prices generally raise birth rates and hasten child-bearing. In a rational world, the panacea policy of housing deregulation would be a done deal.

Known as land subsidence, this natural and man-made phenomenon can have a direct effect on home values and put critical infrastructure such as railroads and airports in danger. Luckily, some land subsidence can be reversed. "It's not cheap and it's not easy.

About one in five Gen Zers, or 22%, say a lack of affordable starter homes poses as a barrier towards homeownership, according to a new report. Some believe fixer-upper homes might be the answer to the issue. More than half, 57%, of Gen Zers polled said they are willing to put an offer on a fixer-upper, according to a new report by Clever Real Estate. The site surveyed 1,000 Gen Z adults 18 and older; 126 were homeowners and the remaining 874 do not own a home. To that point, of the 40% of Gen Z homeowners who did buy a fixer-upper, about 27% regret it, the report found.

watch nowHousing inflation has remained stubbornly high even as inflation in the broad U.S. economy has cooled significantly from peak levels during the pandemic era. At a high level, "shelter" inflation is a measure of U.S. rental prices, said Jessica Lautz, deputy chief economist at the National Association of Realtors. Why CPI shelter inflation has fallen slowlyThe pullback in shelter inflation has been slower than expected, economists said. How the CPI reflects homeownershipThe shelter inflation index is meant to measure the average cost of housing in the U.S. economy, J.P. Morgan's Seydl said. "When it comes to the CPI, [shelter] does not mean the cost for homes for purchase," said the NAR's Lautz.

Mortgage rates have been holding steady so far this week, but they could fluctuate on Thursday when the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases June's Consumer Price Index data. If this index shows that inflation slowed last month, rates could ease. As inflation slows and the Federal Reserve is able to start lowering the federal funds rate, mortgage rates are expected to go down. This should remove some of the upward pressure off of mortgage rates and allow them to trend down more substantially. This means your entire monthly mortgage payment, including taxes and insurance, shouldn't exceed 28% of your pre-tax monthly income.

The recent run-up in home prices, a staggering increase of more than 40% from pre-pandemic levels, should have current homeowners rushing to refinance. But for most, pulling that cash out simply costs too much now that interest rates are more than twice what they were just two years ago. Applications to refinance a home dropped last week for the fourth straight week, down 2%, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association's seasonally adjusted index. Homeowners were sitting on a collective $17 trillion in equity at the end of the first quarter of 2024, according to CoreLogic. Mortgage rates haven't moved at all so far this week, despite Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell's testimony before Congress on Tuesday.

A handful of states, including Texas and Nevada, have set up dedicated systems designed to restore tenants to their homes after an illegal lockout. She and her family still don't have a new apartment, she said, and the eviction cases on her record don't help. BI reviewed two years' worth of lockout cases from the department and found city lawyers routinely dismissed tickets, often without documenting why. Bridget Bennett for Business InsiderThat afternoon, Brown had three cases on his docket in which tenants were alleging they'd been illegally locked out and dozens of cases in which landlords were seeking formal evictions. In 2022, Miami-Dade County passed a tenant's bill of rights that underlines the illegality of lockouts and limits a landlord's ability to harass tenants.

But that data, which makes it possible to compare insurance premiums around the country, also shows something even more surprising: As climate change makes extreme weather more likely, the cost of home insurance doesn’t line up all that closely with risk. Deciphering the cost of home insurance from one place to another is almost impossible. They obtained data showing how much millions of American households pay to mortgage service companies, which typically includes insurance. Then they deducted payments for mortgages, property taxes and other fees, leaving them with an estimate of home insurance premiums. The result is first-of-its-kind data, piercing the veil that insurers and regulators have placed over the cost of home insurance in different parts of the country.
