Why do mortgage rates need to cool down?

HousingWire Lead Analyst Logan Mohtashami explains.

HousingWire Lead Analyst Logan Mohtashami joins the HousingWire Daily podcast to talk about why low mortgage rates need to end. During the interview, HW+ Managing Editor Brena Nath interviews Mohtashami on his most recent article, “We need higher mortgage rates to cool the housing market.”

In his opinion piece, Mohtashami states, “For 2021, we need to root for a repeat of what happened in 2013-2014 and 2018-2019. Home prices have caught up to per capita income, just like what we saw in 2002. However, mortgage rates are lower today, and demographics better. I feared this could be the case and it’s part of why I wrote the Chaos Theory for HousingWire back on Feb 3, 2020. I wrote that if COVID-19 hit us, stocks, the economy, and bond yields would fall, and this means mortgage rates would go down with it.”
