What Does This Mean For Buyers?
For buyers, rising interest rates have begun to slow an overheated market as monthly mortgage payments have risen dramatically since the first of this year. This is pricing some buyers out of the market and causing some buyers to worry if now is a good time to buy. Buyers should expect housing prices to continue to rise, but more inventory is becoming available. Buyers should be confident in their buying decision, as the alternative, renting is increasing in cost as well.
