Mortgage rates tumbled in January, giving buyers in Southern Nevada and across the United States some relief, but borrowing costs have since pushed higher again.
The average rate on a 30-year home loan was 6.65% as of last week, up from 6.09% in early February, federal data shows.
On the construction side, Southern Nevada builders sold far fewer homes and pulled substantially fewer permits in January than they did a year earlier, but the market overall had “a few glimmers of light shining through the fog,” Las Vegas-based Home Builders Research reported.
Builders landed 661 net sales — newly signed purchase contracts minus cancellations — in January, down 39% from the same month last year, according to the firm.
