By Eric Willner, Host of The Real Estate Show, America’s longest running daily radio show about real estate. 

Does the news, media, and economy have you wondering if now is a good time to be buying or selling real estate?

Welcome to the Real Estate Show – South Florida’s #1 Real Estate Radio Show and America’s longest running daily radio show about real estate. My name is Eric Willner, known as the Voice of Real Estate and founder of America’s longest running daily radio show about real estate and also creator of The Automatic Landlord System for Owning Cash Flowing Real Estate “Profitably and Hassle-Free.” This show is a virtual real estate seminar in every episode.

Today’s show is the Wednesday Midweek Mortgage & Market Report Edition of The Real Estate Show, where we continue to talk about why NOW is the right time to buy real estate using the theme of: Whatever it takes to make homeownership a reality for our veterans.

Did you know?

Did you know that veterans have unique opportunities and challenges when it comes to homeownership? Understanding these can be key to success in real estate.

Today’s show is about Push through Resistance and Get Started, and how very important knowing how that works is to a plan that leads to success in real estate.

Trending Topics for Today’s Update(From

Today's national mortgage interest rate trends

On Wednesday, May 29, 2024, the current average 30-year fixed mortgage interest rate is 7.13%, increasing 11 basis points since the same time last week. If you're planning to refinance, the current average 30-year fixed refinance interest rate is 7.15%, rising 11 basis points from a week ago. In addition, the current average 15-year fixed refinance interest rate is 6.64%, up 16 basis points from a week ago. For now, the consensus is that mortgage rates will ease down in 2024. 

Article 1: Weekly mortgage demand drops to three-month low, as rates begin climbing again (CNBC Real Estate)

Key Points:

·       Mortgage Rates Up: After a period of decline, mortgage rates rose again last week, with the average 30-year fixed rate increasing to 7.05%.

·       Demand Dips: This rise in rates led to a 5.7% decrease in overall mortgage application volume compared to the prior week.

·       Refinance Market Hit: Refinance applications were particularly affected, plunging 14% for the week. However, they remain 12% higher than the same time last year.

·       Purchase Applications Down: Mortgage applications to purchase a home also fell slightly (1%) compared to the previous week and are 10% lower year-over-year.

·       Limited Inventory: Tight housing supply with fewer homes for sale is another challenge for potential homebuyers.

·       Rates Likely to Stay High: Federal Reserve comments suggest interest rates might stay elevated for some time. “Rates are driven by bonds, and bonds are waiting on the most relevant economic data to offer a comment on the path of inflation and the economy in general,” wrote Matthew Graham, chief operating officer at Mortgage News Daily. “If inflation falls a bit more or if the economy shows marked signs of weakening, it would tip the scales in favor of lower rates.”


  • Interest Rate Trends: While the average interest rate for 30-year fixed mortgages decreased slightly, the overall impact on mortgage applications remains minimal. This indicates that potential homebuyers and current homeowners looking to refinance are still waiting for more significant drops in rates.
  • Refinance Applications: The drop in refinance applications suggests that most homeowners locked in their rates at lower levels previously and have no incentive to refinance at current rates.
  • Purchase Applications: The slight decrease in purchase applications highlights the cautious approach of buyers who are waiting for lower rates and more inventory. This trend emphasizes the importance of timing and strategy in real estate transactions.
  • Market Expectations: Economic data and inflation trends will play a critical role in future interest rate movements. Lower rates could eventually stimulate more activity in the housing market, but this will likely be a gradual process.

Did you know? Lower mortgage rates are expected to free up additional inventory, but this process will be gradual. Keeping an eye on economic data can give you a financial edge.

Article 2: Housing Prices Hit New Record High in March, Deepening Affordability Crisis (

Key Points:

  • U.S. housing prices reached a new all-time high in March, despite rising mortgage rates.
  • Nationally, prices increased 6.5% year-over-year, marking the fastest pace since November 2022.
  • The housing shortage continues, making affordability worse for many Americans.
  • San Diego saw the biggest annual price increase (11.1%), followed by New York and Cleveland.
  • Denver had the slowest price growth (2.1%).
  • Sun Belt markets (Tampa, Phoenix, Dallas) that boomed earlier are now experiencing slower growth.
  • The Case-Shiller index data is two months behind, so it may not reflect the latest market trends.
  • Underbuilding, rising mortgage rates, and expensive materials are all contributing to the affordability crisis.
