The latest mortgage news
February 2023 — The mortgage industry has been at the mercy of rapidly shifting mortgage rates over the last month. While inflation has slowed recently with the Fed’s upticks in the federal funds rate, positive economic factors — like a better-than-expected jobs report — have caused rates to climb close to 7% — putting even more of a damper on the mortgage market. Record-low rates of inventory are also causing mortgage loan applications to slow to a trickle in many markets, further impacting the mortgage landscape.
According to Realtor.com analyst Jiayi Xu, this is “nobody’s market” — as it’s not friendly to buyers or sellers — and if rates stay high, that trend is likely to continue, according to numerous analysts. As housing market analyst Logan Mohtashami recently told HousingWire, “As we saw after June of last year, when mortgage rates got above 6%, new listing data started to decline year over year and is still falling year over year.” That and other factors will almost certainly have a big impact on the mortgage market for the foreseeable future, and HousingWire will be there to cover it.
