To Buy Or Not To Buy: ‘How To Money’ Looks At The Housing Market & More

Spring is usually the busiest time for the housing market, but the coronavirus has changed that, too, and one listener asks Joel and Matt if they should buy now or wait until later. They’re already under contract, but have been advised that the market could be on a downturn, and if they wait, they could get a better price on the house. Not so fast, Joel says; while it’s true that banks have seen the lowest level of housing loan applications since 2015, that’s no indication that the market will change significantly, since housing inventory is still low. And right now, mortgage rates are incredibly low, so buying now with those rates could actually mean more savings in the long run than waiting for a cheaper price in the future. For that reason, refinancing an existing mortgage could be a good move, too. 

Another listener asks about the stimulus checks;

The
Vanguard Treasury Money Market
fund has closed to new investors for the first time in more than a decade.

The fund (ticker: VUSXX) was closed to new shareholders Thursday, but existing shareholders can make purchases without limits, according to Vanguard, which manages $5.3 trillion in global assets.

Last month the $39.5 billion Treasury fund brought in a record $7.3 billion of cash, according to Lipper Refinitiv, as investors crowded into safer investments during the severe market volatility. Overall, government money-market funds accumulated $901 billion of investor cash over the six weeks ended April 15.

Just as investors flocked into government money-market funds last month, the Federal Reserve cut interest rates to zero, driving Treasury yields broadly lower and reducing the potential yield of the funds for new investors.

The last time Vanguard closed its Treasury Money Market fund was in 2009, in similar

Money market funds, sometimes called money funds, are a type of mutual fund developed in the 1970s as an option for investors to purchase a pool of securities that generally provided higher returns than interest-bearing bank accounts. Money market funds invest in high quality, short-term debt securities and pay dividends that generally reflect short-term interest rates. Many investors use money market funds to manage their cash and other short term funding needs.  They have since grown significantly and currently hold about $3.0 trillion in assets.

There are many kinds of money market funds, including ones that invest primarily in government securities, tax-exempt municipal securities, or corporate debt securities. Money market funds that primarily invest in corporate debt securities are referred to as prime funds. In addition, money market funds are often
