Today, in the Calculated Risk Real Estate Newsletter: Will 5% Mortgage Rates Cushion the Housing Market?
A brief excerpt:
This is less than the 35% year-over-year increase average in June, but still up sharply.
If we include the increase in house prices, payments are up more than 50% year-over-year on the same home.
The bottom-line is the recent decline in mortgage rates will help at the margin, but the housing market will remain under pressure with mortgage rates at 5% (fewer sales, slowing house price growth).
