The unemployment rate and mortgage Interest rates are two of the most important factors in home buying. When unemployment rates are low consumers are working and can afford homes. Consumers feel better when more people are working. That “better” feeling makes them more likely to buy. The unemployment rate for Fresno County was 9.5% in September, the lowest since September 2008. While this is higher that the national numbers it is a good sign for the local economy. Mortgage rates continue to rest at historic lows. Interest rates are hovering around 4% for a 30 fixed rate loan. These two factors are good signs for potential buyers and sellers.
