Market Update
The housing market continues to soften under the pressure of higher mortgage rates. While home prices have eased over the last couple of months, they are still holding up above last year’s level. Combined with the highest interest rates in nearly a decade and a half, affordability challenges continue to mount. The Fed’s renewed commitment to combat inflation by raising rates will only dampen home sales further in the coming months. Home builders sentiment has dipped in recent months and more developers are providing incentives, including price reductions, in order to attract buyers back into the market.

Housing Matters Podcast - latest edition available by clicking here. C.A.R. Economists discuss the upcoming Fed rate hike and how that will play out in the economy. They also recap the latest housing market statistics for California from the weekly data running through the end of August. Although the market shift remains in full swing, the pace of declines have decelerated after the initial surge in interest rates and pending sales suggest a modest improvement in the coming months.
