The Top 50 Luxury Real Estate Markets with Updated Medium Home Values

The definition of the word "mansion" varies but in U.S. real estate terms, it generally defined as single family residence of more than 8,000 square feet. Mega Mansion range from 20,000 sq,ft. and Super Mansions over 50,000 sq.ft. Until the mid 20th century most "mansions" would have a hall, two or three salons or drawing rooms, library, billiards room, ball room, dining room, breakfast room, morning room, study and numerous bedrooms but only 2-3 bathrooms.

Today's Mortgage Rates
Mortgage Rates Slightly Higher Despite Flat Markets 
Jun 22 2018, 6:50PM


Mortgage rates moved slightly higher today.  Yet again, underlying bond markets suggested another fate.  In other words, if mortgage rates were perfectly tied to underlying bond markets, they would have remained unchanged today.  

So why didn't they?  The answer is as simple as the timing of lender rate sheets.  Bond markets were in slightly weaker territory earlier this morning.  This resulted in lenders offering slightly higher rates.  As bonds improved throughout the day, the gains weren't quite enough for those lenders to "reprice" to lower rates.  There's a certain bar to clear in terms of market movement before reprices make sense and we didn't clear it today.
