How The Prime Rate Affects Mortgage Interest Rates

Most people assume that when the prime rate goes up, mortgage interest rates quickly follow. While there is not a direct correlation between the two, the prime rate can indirectly influence many mortgage loan rates.

Prime Rate

The prime rate is based largely on the federal funds rate, tracking about 3% higher than the Federal Reserve rate, and is the commercial short-term interest rate. It is often referred to as the rate that non-bank entities and consumers with the best credit ratings can borrow money from banks.

The Wall Street Journal surveys 30 major banks and re-calibrates the rate every time three-quarters of those banks change their rates. Because of this frequency, the WSJ Prime Rate is one of the most widely accepted current prime rates.

Which Rates Are Affected by Changes In the Prime Rate

While credit card, auto loan, home equity and other short-term loan rates are directly affected by the prime rate, most long-term loans such as 30 year fixed-rate mortgage loans are only indirectly influenced by changes in the prime rate. The exception is adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs), which are directly affected by changes in the prime rate.

How The Prime Rate Affects Mortgage Interest Rates

Mortgage rates are generally determined by economic factors rather than the federal funds rate or the prime rate. The supply and demand for new homes and the supply of money by the Federal Reserve both influence the mortgage interest rate.

When the Federal Reserve increases the supply of money circulating in the economy, market interest rates are pushed lower to encourage economic activity. When the supply of money is decreased, the rates will rise.

A high demand for new homes, especially with low supply, will generally push mortgage rates up, while a lower demand for homes will push the rates down.

While seldom used as a mortgage index, the prime rate does indirectly influence mortgage rates. The prime rate is an important national benchmark which reflects the “mood” of the economy. As the prime rate moves up in response to a federal funds increase, short-term consumer loan rates, home equity loans and adjustable rate mortgages follow suit. Fixed mortgage rates will historically move up as well, although there is usually a delay, or “lag-time” between changes in the prime rate and changes in the 30-year fixed mortgage interest rate as they are not directly tied together.

Conclusion

While the Federal Reserve rate and prime rate directly affect short term loans, they also indirectly influence fixed mortgage rates eventually. If you are considering buying a new home and are following the prime rate increases wondering if mortgage interest rates will follow, you can expect that they will eventually move up, especially if there is a high demand for housing.

With new home prices going up in 2018, a high demand for housing, and the prime rate increasing to over 5% last year, it’s better to act now instead of waiting, to avoid paying a lot more for a new home later.

Multi-Generational Homes For Sale – New Construction

According to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data from 2016, a record 64 million people, or approximately 20% of the U.S. population, lived with multiple generations in the same house.

Reasons:

Recent increases in new home costs such as tariffs, labor shortages, lot development costs, and other factors are driving up the cost of new homes.

The 74 million baby boomers living in the U.S. are getting older and many can no longer afford to live alone or need help from others. Living with family members makes sense in a lot of cases because of lower living expenses and more personal care.

College graduates and Millennials are staying home longer because of the high cost of living.

Multi-generational living is a natural way of life in many cultures and offers support to family members who share everything from meals to chores and many other aspects of their lives.

Types of Homes:

There are many different types of housing that serve as multi-generational homes from multiple structures on the same property to guest suites with kitchens and private entrances in a single home.

One of the most common types of multi-generational homes is a typical single family home with two master bedrooms or converted bonus room over the garage.

Solutions:

Finding a multi-generational home can be a challenge in some areas but more and more builders are starting to offer homes and options that work well for families that have three generations living under the same roof.

Another option is to do a major remodel on an existing home, but depending on the age of the home, the cost may be prohibitive compared to the value of the home. Buying a new home with new systems, fixtures, appliances, roofing and warranty that is set up for multi-generational living may make more sense financially.

McKee Homes offers a dozen floor plans with optional first or second floor guest suites or dual master bedrooms on first and second floor. Six of our multi-generational floor plans offer a second floor guest suite with optional kitchenette and wet bar.

The Beaufort
2,965-3,695 sq. ft. | Bedrooms: 4-5 | Baths: 3.5-4.5
Large open living space with gourmet kitchen, breakfast nook and formal dining room. 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths with plenty of closet space on the second floor. With options for a first floor guest suite and sunroom, The Beaufort works well for multi-generational living.

The Brooks
2,948-3,740 sq. ft. | Bedrooms: 4 | Baths: 3
The Brooks is one of our most popular floorplans with large open living space, large kitchen, breakfast nook and formal dining room on first floor along with guest suite and optional sunroom. The second floor has three bedrooms, two full baths, a game room and bonus room. With plenty of storage space and room to spread out, the Brooks makes an ideal multi-generational home.

The Broughton
2,677-2,762 sq. ft. | Bedrooms: 4 | Baths: 3.5
The Broughton is a new floorplan that is currently being prototyped. It will be introduced in 2019. The guest suite on the first floor with master and two additional bedrooms on the second floor make it ideal for multi-generational living.

The Clark
3,357-4,080 sq. ft. | Bedrooms: 4 | Baths: 3.5
The Clark has owner’s suites on both first and second floors with two additional bedrooms on the second floor that share a buddy-bath. There is a large game room and bonus room on the second floor and plenty of storage throughout the home. One of our larger floorplans, the Clark works nicely as a multi-generational home.

The Harris
2,768 sq. ft. | Bedrooms: 4 | Baths: 3.5
The Harris was designed specifically as a multi-generational floorplan with two master bedroom suites on the first floor. The second floor has two additional bedrooms and a full bath, plus a 200 sq. ft. of finished storage room. The Harris is still in prototype status and will be released in early 2019.

The Sanborne
2,809-3,028 sq. ft. | Bedrooms: 4 | Baths: 3
The Sanborne works well as a multi-generational home with a full guest suite, large kitchen, huge island with sink, breakfast area, family room, formal dining room and optional sunroom on the first floor. There are three bedrooms and two full baths on the second floor along with a huge game room and plenty of storage.

Epcon Series Floorplans
In addition to our many custom-designed McKee floor plans, McKee Homes is also an Epcon franchise. We have developed a customized version of our Epcon series floor plans called the Bungalow collection which have second floor guest suites, many with options for kitchenettes. The second floor guest suites in the Bungalow collection floor plans make these homes ideal for multi-generational living.

The Palazzo Bungalow
2,160-2,291 sq. ft. | Bedrooms: 3 | Baths: 3

The Portico Bungalow
2,540-2,657 sq. ft. | Bedrooms: 3 | Baths: 3

10 Tips to Get Your Home Ready for Winter

Autumn is a great season for fun events and holiday get-togethers with family and friends. It’s also the perfect time of year to get your home ready for winter.

Here are 10 tips to help you get your home ready for winter, so you can stay warm and dry inside when it’s cold and wet outside.

  1. Test your heating system and replace filters
    Turn on your heat before you need it to make sure everything is working properly. Don’t wait until you need to heat your home to find out there is a problem. You may have to wait days in the cold to get someone to come out for repairs. This is also a great time to replace the HVAC filters.
    Watch our short video about how to replace an HVAC air filter.
  2. Schedule routine HVAC inspection and maintenance
    Even if you have a new home it’s a good idea to have your HVAC system inspected twice a year. That way any issues that might prevent the system from working efficiently can be dealt with before the peak demand. The technician can also detect and prevent issues that could cause problems in the future, so your family stays warm and comfortable all winter.
  3. Test smoke alarms
    Protect your ears with earplugs, headphones or earbuds and test your smoke alarms by pressing the TEST button. It will issue a very loud shrill sound. If any of your alarms are emitting an occasional loud beep or have a blinking red light, replace the battery. That way even if the power goes out, you’ll be alerted to any smoke in the house.
  4. Reverse ceiling fan rotation
    Make sure your ceiling fans are blowing air down instead of pulling air up. Most ceiling fans have a switch on the housing for reversing the rotation of the blades if needed. This will pull the warm air accumulating at the ceiling down into the room to make it warmer. Reverse the rotation when the weather turns warm in the late spring.
  5. Clean gutters
    Clogged gutters can back up with rain water which will turn to ice when the temperature is below freezing. This can cause expensive repairs if not corrected. Make sure gutters are free of leaves and debris.
  6. Do a visual roof inspection
    Do a visual inspection of your roof to make sure it is clean with no damaged shingles, flashing or plumbing boots. If you have a steep roof or can’t access your roof, you may want to call a professional roofer to do a comprehensive inspection.
  7. Drain sprinkler system
    Don’t forget to drain your sprinkler system to avoid expensive repairs from broken lines and sprinkler heads. Turn off the water to the system and drain the lines. Remove the heads and shake out the water before replacing them.
  8. Disconnect garden hoses from faucets
    Water left in hoses and faucets can freeze and break the water lines just inside the wall. Disconnect all garden hoses from faucets at the house and yard. Shut off water to supply lines to exterior hose bibs in the yard or garden. Drain all hoses and put away for the winter.
  9. Remove fuel from lawn equipment, clean and stow
    Fuel left in mowers and weed trimmers can leave a buildup that can corrode the fuel lines and carburetors preventing them from starting in the spring. Drain all excess fuel from the tanks and run the engine until it stops to remove all fuel from the carburetor and fuel lines. Clean any grass buildup on the bottom of the mower and stow for winter.
  10. Prune plants and trees
    Dead tree limbs can break and cause expensive damage to your home. Even healthy trees can damage your roofing and siding in a wind storm if they are making direct contact. Late autumn in the best time to prune trees and plants. Keep limbs and branches at least three feet from your house.

A little bit of maintenance and preparation can prevent expensive and aggravating problems and repairs this winter. Use these 10 tips to help you get your home ready for winter, so you can stay warm and dry inside while enjoying time with your family.

What Is the Purpose of a Neighborhood HOA?

Many neighborhoods and community developments in the United States have a Homeowners’ Association (HOA) or Property Owners’ Association (POA) that require membership of anyone that buys a home in the neighborhood or development.

What is an HOA?

HOAs and POAs are private associations that oversee and manage neighborhood common areas and amenities as well as insuring property owners obey the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs), Articles of Incorporation, By-Laws and any other governing documents.

Board of Directors

HOAs generally consist of a voluntary board of directors elected by their fellow residents to make decisions on the residents’ behalf. The board of directors includes the president, secretary and treasurer.

HOA Duties

The duties of an HOA vary depending on the neighborhood. A simple neighborhood with few amenities may have one HOA meeting per year to vote on board and committee members, new rules, resident concerns and issues and set a budget.

A large community with high-end country club amenities may have many meetings each year to plan projects, create committees, arrange for maintenance and strictly enforce rules, with predetermined fines for residents that breach the by-laws. Some of these neighborhoods even include lawn maintenance in the HOA fees charged to residents.

Advantages of an HOA

The primary advantage of living in a neighborhood with an HOA is that it provides a safeguard for residents’ property values. Money is collected for landscape and other maintenance including any neighborhood amenities. Residents are generally not allowed to collect junk in their yards, raise farm animals, or otherwise let their house and property descend to a point that would lower their neighbor’s property values. This secures the residents’ investment in their neighborhood and maintains a certain curb-appeal.

Disadvantages of an HOA

Some HOAs can impose covenants that might seem overly restrictive such as needing HOA approval to make minor changes to their house or property including changing the color of their front door. Some HOAs will fine residents for not cutting their lawn regularly or if they leave their garage doors open. These are somewhat extreme examples which are sometimes found in high-end neighborhoods and communities.

Conclusion

If you’ve found a home you love but are concerned about being controlled by the HOA, it’s best to learn as much as you can about it before buying. Your Realtor or homebuilder can supply you with the HOA fees, CC&Rs, By-Laws and other documents which you can review before making a purchase decision.

If maintaining your property value and living in a neighborhood that is safe and clean is important to you, a neighborhood HOA is a necessity. Most homeowners have a positive experience living in neighborhoods governed by an HOA.

If you are not happy with your HOA, or feel it needs to be improved, consider getting involved by attending meetings, submitting a complaint or even volunteering to be on the board.
