KEY MARKET INDICATORS SEPTEMBER 2023 (AUGUST Recap)
Purchasing in Today’s Market
In the more affordable and mid-price ranges, where 80% of the activity takes place, we anticipate home prices will rise after the first of the year. Economists forecast that home mortgage interest rates will lower into the 6’s as we head into 2024. A mortgage interest rate decrease will cause monthly payments to go down slightly, but the price of homes are forecasted to increase due to limited supply in these price ranges.
