Mortgage Rates & Home Price Forecasts, Foreclosures & Inventory
Mortgage Rates & Home Price Forecasts, Foreclosures & Inventory; going up like the # of ski resorts opening for the season or going down like the cooler temps in the weeks ahead?
Kelie Gray and Brandy Morgan tuned into a webinar to learn what the experts were predicting. Here are some things we learned:
- Housing experts and economists project mortgage rates will continue to rise - until inflation shows signs of easing.
- Currently inflation is at a 40 year high!
- Freddie Mac says that in the past 50 years, this year we have seen the biggest increase in rates.
- Home price forecasts for next year (2023) are relatively neautral. Some markets with slight appreciation and some with slight depreciation.
- There is not a pent up wave of foreclosures coming to the market, that would make home prices crash.
- Actually, there's fewer and fewer foreclosures every year.
- Homeownership wins over time!
- Rents have skyrocketed, so build your own equity.
