Now, let's discuss some recent headlines in the world of real estate and the economy. These headlines are essential because they impact your journey to financial independence and peace of mind. Stay tuned, as we break it down for you.


 On Wednesday, November 01, 2023, the current average interest rate for the benchmark 30-year fixed mortgage is 8.06%, which increased by 2 basis points from a week ago. If you're considering refinancing, the current average 30-year refinance interest rate is 8.15%, which decreased by 2 basis points compared to this time last week.

 Adjustable-rate mortgage demand jumps nearly 10%

 In recent news, the demand for adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) has surged by nearly 10%. With mortgage rates climbing to the highest level in over two decades, homebuyers are exploring riskier mortgage products to help them enter the housing market.

The ARM share of mortgage applications has now reached the highest level in nearly a year. While applications for home purchase loans fell by 1% for the week and were 22% lower year over year, the increased interest in ARMs indicates a willingness to take on more risk to navigate the current market conditions.

New homes are faring better in the housing market

 In another headline,'s Danielle Hale reports that new homes are faring better in the housing market. This suggests that new construction could be an attractive option for those considering entering the real estate market. We'll continue to keep you informed about the latest trends and opportunities in the housing market.

 The Federal Reserve may not hike interest rates next week

Turning our attention to the broader economic landscape, the Federal Reserve is expected to announce no rate hike at the end of its two-day meeting next week. While this may provide some relief for borrowers, consumers are still likely to feel the effects of higher rates and persistent inflation.


The Federal Reserve has already raised interest rates 11 times since last year, marking the fastest pace of tightening since the early 1980s. Despite this, the consensus among economists and central bankers is that interest rates will remain elevated for an extended period.


Consumers continue to face sky-high borrowing costs. Credit card rates have soared, with most credit cards now carrying an average rate of more than 20%. Without a rate hike, APRs may continue to rise, further straining consumers' finances.


 Mortgage rates have also risen, with the average rate for a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage reaching 8%, the highest in 23 years. The increase in rates is partly due to inflation and the Federal Reserve's policy moves.


Auto loan rates are on the rise, with the average rate for a five-year new car loan now at 7.62%, the highest in 16 years. Rising car prices and interest rates are pushing up costs for motorists, resulting in larger monthly payments for many.


Federal student loan rates have increased, affecting undergraduate students who take out new direct federal student loans. These rates have risen from 4.99% in the 2022-23 academic year to 5.50% in the current year. Interest is now accruing again for those with existing debt, ending the pandemic-era pause on student loan payments.


While borrowers are facing challenges, savers are benefiting from rising deposit rates. Savings account rates at some banks are now paying over 5%, marking the most substantial returns for savers in nearly two decades. Shifting your money to a high-yield savings account can be a simple way to increase your earnings.


 These economic factors and trends have a direct impact on your financial well-being, especially if you're considering real estate investments. The information we provide here on The Real Estate Show can help you make informed decisions and develop a financial edge.

That's a wrap for today's "Wednesday Midweek Mortgage & Market Report" edition of The Real Estate Show.
