The Real Estate Corner: by Joy Kingsbury

According to data compiled and released by the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, or Freddie Mac, mortgage rates will continue upward. Currently, the average for a 30-year fixed, residential home loan hit 3.17%, the highest rate since June of 2020. Now, they have begun to seesaw. So, if you are shopping for a home loan, try to get a lock on the best rate you can get.

In the Oakridge/Westfir area, there is little inventory in the way of housing for sale or rent right now. What is currently available is avidly sought after, creating bidding wars in some instances.

Vacant, buildable lots with relaxed covenants, conditions, and restrictions, are in demand, giving builders the opportunity to build creatively with the use of rustic and other unusual materials.

More innovations are coming to the forefront with the higher prices brought on by inflation. This is a discouraging factor for builders and contractors. Many homeowners are opting to upgrade as they can afford, rather than sell, build or relocate.

Homeowners are having difficulty hiring help. It’s hard to find good maintenance workers, gardeners, and general handymen/women for jobs around the home and grounds.

If you have any of those skills and wish to put them to good purpose, please advertise your field of expertise in the Highway 58 Herald. One job can pay for your ad. Get the word out -and you are hired!
