FEDS PAUSE AND SELLERS DIG IN

FEDS PAUSE AND SELLERS DIG IN

Rates should stabilize, but more homes needed

The major broken record takeaway this spring is the same. 

Elevated mortgage rates are prompting many homeowners to stay put, resulting in bidding wars as buyers compete for a small pool of homes.

But buyers and sellers can at least take a little comfort in knowing the Federal Reserve probably won’t raise interest rates again anytime soon.

“While a pause in Fed rate hikes doesn’t mean a significant drop in mortgage rates is coming, it does at least alleviate one layer of uncertainty in the housing market,” said Redfin Economics Research Lead Chen Zhao. “Unexpectedly bad inflation data, more banking turmoil or failure to raise the U.S. debt ceiling could throw a wrench in the Fed’s plans, but homebuyers and sellers can feel a little more confident that mortgage rates won’t skyrocket again.”

For now, homes are getting snatched up quickly as a shortage of listings sparks bidding wars between the buyers who remain in the market despite elevated mortgage rates.
