    Mortgage Demand Falls to Lowest Levels in 22 Years

    Overall demand for mortgages fell by 2% during the week of August 10, bringing demand to the lowest levels that they have been since 2000. This represents an overall cooling of the market that has brought mortgage rates down over the past few weeks, despite rising interest rates.


    Home Prices Saw 10 Year Record Decline in July

    Nationally, home prices fell for the first time in three years in July, signaling to some that the housing market may be on the verge of a recession. Part of the reason for this anxiety is that this drop is the largest the housing market has seen since 2011, making it the biggest dip in the market in more than a decade. Combined with rising interest rates, high inflation, and an increasing amount of inventory, some economists believe that prices could decline even further in the coming months.


    Buyers See Benefit in Higher Housing Inventory and Lower Prices

    As the amount of housing inventory has increased and prices have fallen, some buyers have become more eager to look for potential homes to purchase. This follows several months of rising interest rates and record-high inflation, which have caused the housing market to cool and prices to drop overall. While this may be less fortunate for some sellers, it could be a good time for reticent buyers to start getting into the market to take advantage of relatively low prices.


    Mortgage Rates Fall on Negative Economic Signs

    Mortgage rates declined nearly half a percent over the course of two days after worse than expected economic reports became public. These reports have stoked fears that the economy may be facing a potential recession, with mortgage lenders reacting by lowering rates. This also comes at the same time that inflation is reaching the highest levels they have been at in decades, while the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates more broadly.


    Five Reasons You May Want to Consider Selling Your Home

    While the real estate market has begun to cool, it is still the best it has been for sellers in more than a decade. That means, for some people, it may be the perfect time to consider selling your home and getting the most out of the equity in your property. Here are five reasons you may want to consider selling your home right now:


    Home Sale Cancellations At Highest Rate Since Beginning of Pandemic

    The rate of home sale cancellations reached a record of 15%, the highest rate since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. This rate of cancellations is the result of buyers reconsidering their purchases due to changes in the market, which have caused them to back out on their existing real estate transactions. As a result, sellers are left with an unsold home, contributing to a housing market that has begun to cool.


    Housing Supply Up By 19%, But Inventory Issues Remain

    According to recent reports, the number of homes available for purchase is up 19% overall across the country, compared to the same time last year. Despite this, however, housing prices remain high, due to enormous demand for housing, especially affordable housing. However, some experts are predicting that these high prices will not last much longer, and as more inventory enters the market, sellers may begin to lower their prices to compete.


    Five Reasons Why You Should Get Inspections Before Buying

    While inspections are not strictly mandatory when buying a new home or other building, it is almost always advisable to do so. If you do not get a property inspected before you buy, you could set yourself up to deal with enormous problems later on. Here are five major reasons why you should always get real estate inspected before you agree to purchase it:


    Why Do Sellers Ask for Pre-Approval for Mortgages Before They Sell?

    It is a common practice in the real estate industry for sellers to require buyers to get pre-approval for financing for any sale. This is true even in cases where a buyer has the liquid assets available to potentially purchase a property outright, without needing a mortgage. So why do sellers tend to require pre-approval for a mortgage before they will sell, and why should you do the same?


    Rising Interest Rates Could Lead to Chilling Market

    Although home prices have reached some of the highest levels on record, some economists warn that rising interest rates could stop this trend soon. With more inventory entering the market, forecasters are predicting the real estate market is beginning to cool. Higher interest rates could accelerate this process by making it more expensive for prospective buyers to get mortgages, limiting demand.
