Interest Rates Impact Affordability

Housing is the instrument to control the economy.
We are seeing that Buyers want to pay exactly what a home is worth.
Sellers are in a no rush to sell phase why?
Sellers are seeing a never-before-seen equity gain on homes in the last 2 years. Equity gains were at 24% but are still at a strong 8%.
Number of Current Mortgages:
  • 72% = 4% or lower.
  • 55% = 3.5% or lower.
  • 34% = 3% or lower.
Since the start of 2022, the expected market time has increased in both regions from around 21 days to around 62 days since July but compared to the pre-pandemic market time of 90 days, it is still a Seller’s market.
Similarly, inventory levels still need to grow by 20% when comparing them to the 3-year average.
