San Carlos Real Estate Summary.
The real estate market got a big shot in the arm this past week when the Federal Reserve announced that it will keep its rates near zero until 2013. This essentially ensures that mortgage rates will remain at historically low levels during this period, and that’s always a good catalyst for folks to buy homes. In my opinion, this move will largely nullify the effects of the wild ride the stock market has taken over the same period — at least with respect to the local real estate market. If people feel assured that they can lock in a great long-term rate, then they’ll buy homes — regardless of what the stock market is doing during a given week.
