For Week Ending May 28, 2022

Nationally, home sales and contract signings continue to soften compared to last year’s pace, while sellers are working quickly to list their homes and cash in on the remaining buyer demand. Realtor.com reports new listings are growing nearly twice as fast nationwide in May compared to this time a year ago, leading to a greater availability of homes for sale. As inventory inches upward and competition eases, sellers are having to adjust to the shifting landscape, with an increase in price reductions reported across many markets.

Mortgage rates continued to inch downward this week but are still significantly higher than last year, affecting affordability and purchase demand. Heading into the summer, the potential homebuyer pool has shrunk, supply is on the rise and the housing market is normalizing. This is welcome news following unprecedented market tightness over the last couple years.

Mortgage rates decreased for the second week in a row due to multiple headwinds that the economy is facing. Despite the recent moderation in rates, the housing market has clearly slowed, and the deceleration is spreading to other segments of the economy, such as consumer spending on durable goods.
