COVID Market Update
Rising interest rates and red-hot market competition began to take a toll on the housing market. While new and existing home sales continue to outperform last year’s levels, a gradual slowdown in housing demand is reflected in the month-to-month sales declines in both markets. As tight supply remains an issue and home prices continue to surge, many would-be buyers continue to face affordability challenges that are difficult to overcome. With the reopening of the state, the economic outlook will no doubt improve further in the second half of the year. On the other hand, the housing market will likely slowdown in the coming months as buyer fatigue kicks in and costs of borrowing remain on the rise.
