News Roundup for a wild Real Estate Market as we head toward 2023!

The 2022 housing market rodeo isn’t over yet.  There’s a lot happening in US housing markets, and there’s plenty of uncertainty for homebuyers and home sellers, about where housing markets are heading in the next 12 months.

Home For SaleIt’s going to be a rocky period and experts aren’t really sure how the housing market forecast will play over the remainder of 2022 to 2023. While the housing news might seem grim, at the end of it might be grand opportunities to buy a home at a much reduced price. Buyers have to feel some joy, that home prices could drop significantly.

Further, mortgage rates could fall in late 2023 if a recession hits. Once the inflation rate drops, central banks might take their foot off the brake pedal, and patient buyers are presented with as good an opportunity to buy as they’ll get.

If you’re a potential homebuyer, don’t be dismayed, because your grand opportunity to get a quality home might be just ahead. Check with your Realtor, and get prequalified, and discuss the housing market outlook with your mortgage provider. This could be good!
