February 4, 2008

Interest Rates rose to 5.5% for a 30 year fixed on February 4, 2008. The Fed dropped interest rates .5% at a meeting last week. This has not actually resulted in mortgage rates falling yet but it has sparked a tremenous amount of consumer interest.

Current listing inventory - 195 active listings in Owatonna as of today, that is the lowest the count has been since January of 2007. However it is primarily due to a large number of listings expiring last week (many of them ours)and they will be coming back on the market. The number of pending listings remained stable at 17 houses. There were 19 properties Closed so far in 2008.

The 2007 year end market absorption chart is available and has quite a bit of interesting data.
