Bad News for Homebuyers

Buying Real Estate
Home buyers are getting crushed by skyrocketing mortgage rates. As of 9/23/22, the average 30 yr fixed rate mortgage is 6.7% (per the Mortgage News Daily). These are the highest rates we’ve seen since late 2008! On top of that, mortgage interest rates have increased 360bps (3.6 percentage points) over the last 12 months and have risen 165bps since August 1st of this year. The direct impact to current homebuyers is a huge reduction in purchasing power (a drop of 10% for every 1% gain in rates).

Additionally, due to rising mortgage rates home buyers’ mortgage payments have increased by $767/mo from one year ago (a 64% increase) and a $321/mo jump since 8/1/22 (a 20% rise in the last 1.5 mos). If mortgage rates sustain at these levels, demand should fall further in the weeks and months ahead.
