Telling it like it is. That’s what we’ve always done, especially these days. It’s crucial to know the current ebbs and flows of the U.S. real estate market. From shifts in mortgage rates to fluctuations in sales volume, the changes have a nationwide impact. at WLH, we are finding GOOD opportunities for our clients due to the changing market. This blog post aims to summarize some of the latest news affecting it.
Here’s the situation with mortgage rates, which is vital to buyers and sellers.
In this turbulent financial climate, mortgage rates have become a central concern. This rise has a ripple effect on various aspects of real estate, from affordability to sales volume.
Let’s talk about the affordability of homes.
Housing affordability had been easing somewhat, but the rising rates have offset any gains. This, coupled with low inventory, creates a rather gloomy picture for those looking to buy or sell. But it’s not all doom and gloom; for instance, new construction markets offer glimmers of hope.
What’s the scenario on sales volume?
Sales volume hitting a low might seem like bad news, but remember, the only way to go from rock bottom is up. Low sales volume reflects a hesitant market, one waiting for the other shoe to drop or rise, as the case may be.
We also need to consider home prices.
While demand is currently not our strong suit, but the low inventory and subsequent demand could increase prices. This is a complicated market where various factors intersect, making keeping your finger on the pulse more crucial than ever.
