Why Are Mortgage Rates So High?

why are mortgage rates so high

In the wake of the post-COVID era and some of the more... egregious economic decisions made in the past few years, inflation began to skyrocket in early 2021. In response, the federal reserve roared to life, raising interest rates in ways unseen for decades. The resulting shock stirred prospective buyers and sellers into a defensive crouch while pricing many millennial home buyers out of the market altogether. The Champagne & Parisi agents are here to deliver the facts and assuage concerns about this seemingly unprecedented time. However, this is far from unprecedented, and in fact, is closer to the mean in U.S. History than the past few decades would indicate. This is an unfamiliar, but not unprecedented time, and for our part, we're here to bring you some answers to the most pressing questions you have for us. So, why are mortgage rates so high? Read today's blog for a few of the prime reasons behind it.

5 Ways Modern Technology Has Changed Luxury Real Estate

ways technology has changed real estate

In many ways, Real Estate retains its old-school methodology compared to other industries, like retail and entertainment. The amount of time spent behind the wheel, on the phones, and speaking directly with clients has allowed the digital age to drag Realty along without completely disposing of traditional marketing and business practices. Yet, even in a field dominated by intrapersonal skills and sheer work ethic, there are many newfangled ideas and methods brought in by these winds of change. Here are 5 ways modern technology is changing real estate, and how you can be ready for the next big thing.

Use Of Big Data

"Big Data" is not a phrase used to describe the conspiratorial notion that "data" is up to no good, in the same way, we'd colloquially describe "big pharma" or "big oil." "Big Data" is simply a means to describe the sheer capacity and volume of informational intake that modern technology affords us. With larger data sets, the ability to retrieve key data immediately, and real-time statistical reporting, Realtors possess the ability to influence decisions and inform clients with information that massively exceeds what was once available.
