Expert mortgage rate projections
As inflation rose this year, interest rates climbed significantly too. According to the latest data from NAR, today, the typical monthly mortgage payment is now almost seven hundred dollars higher than it was a year ago. If that’s making you press pause on your home search, I get it.
But here’s the thing. Experts project mortgage rates should start to stabilize, not continue their steep climb.
This chart shows the latest mortgage rate projections from several industry experts. On average, they’re forecasting rates will remain fairly steady over the next four quarters, hovering in the low-five percent range.
The key is, that we also have to watch what happens with inflation to see how mortgage rates respond. I’m keeping a close eye on all the data, and the good news is, as inflation shows signs of peaking, experts don’t project mortgage rates will continue to rise as they did earlier this year.
