Economic Update For Week Ending February 27, 2021

Feb 27, 2021 — Tina Lucarelli, Rodeo Realty

Stock markets dropped on fears of higher interest rates – As the economy appears to be recovering quicker than expected according to data and developments that are very positive, rising interest rates became a concern over the last two weeks. Stock markets reached record highs two weeks ago on news that COVID-19 cases were falling, the pace of vaccines had increased, retail sales rose sharply, corporate profits were strong, an unprecedented amount of additional stimulus will be added to the economy in the coming months, and the economy is finally beginning to re-open at a quicker pace than we have seen since the start of the pandemic. Unfortunately, all that optimism also has increased the risk of higher inflation and has lowered the demand for U.S. Treasury bonds. Treasury bonds pay low yields but are attractive when investors want to park money at low risk. Bond yields fell sharply from the start of the pandemic as investors rushed to safety, which lowered yields. Bond yields directly affect lending rates on every type of loan. Bond yields have increased to their highest level since last April, which has caused interest rates on all types of loans to increase. Higher borrowing costs lower profits. With investors uncertain about how much higher interest rates will rose, stock prices have dropped. 

Are “Living Off The Grid” and “Luxury” Incompatible?

Feb 26, 2021 — 2Costa Rica Real Estate

The term “living off the grid” has had significant changes throughout the last years; some consider it a synonym to living a secluded lifestyle; away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. On the other hand, others take it more literally and consider it a lifestyle where you seek to be self-sustainable by growing your food, and incorporating utilities from alternative sources such as eco-friendly ways of generating energy. 

The Colorado Luxury Real Estate Market is Thriving in 2021

Feb 26, 2021 — Kentwood Real Estate

In Colorado’s overheated real estate markets, one notable sector that has benefitted from our current frenzied climate is the luxury sector. Two years ago, homes over $1 million were plentiful and sellers often had to reduce their price to get an offer. Our supply shortage was primarily in the mid-to-low-tier price ranges. At the time, we generally saw 4-6 months of inventory on the high end, providing buyers time to make their decision.

The Unknown Layers of Costa Rica

Feb 25, 2021 — 2Costa Rica Real Estate

Yes, Costa Rica is mostly known for its lush rainforests and paradisiac beaches, but it is not just a huge jungle similar to the scenes shown in Jurassic Park. Although the movie was filmed here and, indeed, Costa Rica is mainly water and untamed forest, having an urban lifestyle in one of the cities of this country might have more advantages than you’d think. And let’s face it, not everyone is made to cohabitate with the monkeys, live in the secluded mountains or relax on the Pacific Coast. Living in the city has its advantages because everything you need is either within walking distance or just a short drive. Just like in any city, this is perfect for people who are looking for the most convenient place to live without having to commute to school or work for long hours. But the city life in Costa Rica can be, aside from convenient, as interesting as in any other city, as the cultural aspect, world-class education, and a variety of attractions and entertainment for leisure time can be found around the corner.
