  1. NCAA March Madness (CBS Networks) – The 2021 NCAA Tournament continues with the Sweet 16.  Sadly, all of our local colleges were knocked out of the show last weekend, but there’s still plenty of drama ahead.  Check out the game schedule at CBSSports.com.
  2. National Cherry Blossom Festival Virtual Events (nationalcherryblossomfestival.org) – National Park Service announced that, in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and DC Health and in consultation with the National Park Service Office of Public Health, they will limit all vehicular and pedestrian access to the Tidal Basin, East Potomac Park, and West Potomac Park during the peak bloom period of the cherry blossoms as a public health precaution to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Instead, take part in one of the many virtual events that are planned, including the Blossom Kite Fly, Petal Porch Parade, and Pink Tie Party, all of which can be done in your own home or neighborhood!
  3. Washington Performing Arts Home Deliver Plus – J’Nai Bridges, mezzo-soprano (online) – The celebrated Met Opera star presents a recital ranging from works by some of her favorite contemporary composers to classics by Brahms and Berg. Tickets are $20.

  5. Tina (HBO Max) – With a wealth of never-before-seen footage, audiotapes, personal photos, and new interviews, including with the singer herself, TINA presents an unvarnished and dynamic account of the life and career of music icon Tina Turner. Available Saturday at 8:00 pm.

Mortgage Rates Jump Up

During the course of the pandemic, ‘home’ has become more important than ever. As a result, strong purchase demand continues—but buyers also outnumber the sellers. Since January, mortgage rates have increased half a percentage point from historic lows and home prices have risen, leaving potential homebuyers with less purchasing power. Unfortunately, this has disproportionately affected the low end of the market, where supply is the slimmest.

  • The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.17 percent with an average 0.7 point for the week ending March 25, 2021, up from last week when it averaged 3.09 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.50 percent.
  • The 15-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 2.45 percent with an average 0.6 point, up from last week when it averaged 2.40 percent. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 2.92 percent.
