What Does this Mean to You?
Although the market is expected to cool off somewhat due to the fact that prices have been increasing at record highs, mortgage rates continue to inch up, and more inventory is coming on market in the next few months. For those waiting to sell, you may be met with greater competition and buyers (loan) with less purchasing power.
The same goes for prospective home buyers. The market will most likely see a softening in prices, but that doesn’t mean a decrease. Also note that mortgage interest rates are at the 4% mark, plus or minus. Historically, 4% is still a great rate, but keep in mind that the higher the interest rate, the less purchasing power you have.
