Inflation numbers this month will largely influence where we head from here, but I believe we've got some relief in sight.  It's important to remember thsi jump is coming up from the "COVID-market".  In reality, we're back to early 2019 when rates were at similar levels.  Hopefully the Fed moves reign in inflation, which should bring rates back down.  And when the Fed, being the dummies they are, cause recession in the next 12 months, we'll see rates come down further.  Fingers crossed!

Unlike the transitory inflation the current administration announced, it is here to stay for a bit. Gear up, it's going to get worse!

I got a note from my banker this past week letting me know that it was time to renew a few of my notes, the surprise was that both of them are going up 5 percent.  Sitting down with him this afternoon to see if this can be adjusted or if it is time to pay these off.

I read the other day that the Fed plans six (6) more rate increases in 2022. It's going to get a lot worse so hang on, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

Rates will rise steadily and will have some effect on the Real Estate Market. It's all part of a plan. These things don't happen randomly

I still remember interest rates when I bought my first house. We started at 9-3/4 percent.  It was only a few years later and the ARM we had rose to 17%. From the looks of where we are at, it's going to continue to rise -- so hang on tight! Only God Knows!

I think rate increases are just temporary and they will go back down some.

After many years of artificially low rates mortgage rate are beginning to return to normal. Will interest rates banks pay on deposits also rise? All of this at a time when our national leadership is befuddled which exacerbates the situation.

LOL, not rougher than a Crash 2007-2012. Not rougher than a Pandemic 2020-2022. We're about to go through economics 101, predicted over a year ago, no shock, no awe and not the biggest rate hike I've seen.

May be an image of text that says 'The Impact of Rising Rates on Home Prices Changes When Mortgage Rates Increase by More Than 1% Start Date End Date Oct 1993 Months Dec 1994 Increase Jan 1996 14 Home Prices Sept 1996 2.38% Oct 1998 8 +3% May 2000 1.2% 19 June 2003 +2% June 2004 1.81% June 2005 12 +13% July 2006 1.06% Nov 2012 13 +13% Dec 2013 1.18% 13 +7% Average 1.11% 13 +11% 1.46% +8%'

I think North America is in for a short rough ride. They can't raise them too high or long as we will have people walking away from their homes again.

Despite the this and that dynamics of the subject matter, this is a great time for sellers to realize/trigger & collect their monster equity gains & for buyers to jump-in, hold-on and ride it to better times called a Real Estate cycle.

Open houses must be managed. It is absolute mayhem. I am appalled at how some people and their agents behave.

Wow, but remember interest rates WAYYYYY higher (like CC % higher) and people camping out for new builds in the OC?

Crazy open house numbers! Fed rates are due to go up several more times this year, so that will bring up mortgage rates as well.
