Technology continues to advance on using 3-D for home tours. Realtor.com currently supports links to 3-D and is gearing up to integrate 3-D tours into its site.
Construction job openings continue to rise as residential construction grows. Home builders have added 140,000 new jobs on a net basis in the last 12 months.

 

 


Rate movements and volatility are based on published, aggregate national averages and measured from the previous to the most recent midweek daily reporting period. These rate trends can differ from our own and are subject to change at any time.
