Homebuyers say rising rates are making it more difficult to buy a home in today’s market in a recent survey.
Shoppers are now becoming BUYERS.
Furthermore, 63% of correspondents say rising mortgage interest rates are making it harder for them to afford a home.
Rates will be under pressure to rise, your payment is more than last year and less than next year at this time. (Think about that.)
Meanwhile, 58% of buyers cited low inventory as a major concern, falling from 66% of respondents last quarter.
The survey results underscore buyer sensitivity to this summer’s mortgage rate fluctuations, and should interest rates spike again in the coming months in response to a tapering by the Federal Reserve of asset purchases, we could see a significant drawback in buyer activity.
The survey included data from 1,722 homebuyers in 22 U.S. markets.
Condo’s continue to out pace houses in appreciation. Mainly because of the lower prices. There are more buyers in that price range and condo’s are good for investors who buy and then rent them out.
