Months Supply

What is Month’s Supply? Months of supply is the measure of how many months it would take for the current inventory of homes on the market to sell, given the current pace of home sales. For example, if there are 50 homes on the market and 10 homes selling each month, there is a 5 month supply of homes for sale.

Months of supply is a good indicator of whether a particular real estate market is favoring buyers or sellers. Typically, a market that favors sellers has less than 6 months of supply, while more than 6 months of supply indicates an excess of homes for sale that favors buyers.

Interest Rates

Getting a mortgage just became cheaper, given the Federal Reserve’s decision to put a moratorium on interest rate hikes this year. Economists predict that this decision will stimulate mortgage demand and, therefore, increase home sales in the second quarter CY2019.

Yields on U.S. Treasury notes primarily influence mortgage rates; however, the Fed and the state of the economy also impacts long-term fixed mortgage rates. Locking in the Fed benchmark rate will be more beneficial to homeowners with adjustable-rate mortgages (ARM), and home equity lines of credit (HELOC), which are affected by the prime rate.
