Higher Mortgage Rates Cause Pause, may Fuel more Home Sales soon

nahb-2-logo-posted-daily-business-news-manufactured-home-marketing-sales-management-mhpronews-com-The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) tells MHProNews that sales of newly built, single family homes declined in July 13.4%, to a seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR) of 394,000 units. “The drop-off in sales in July is in part a reflection of buyers’ reaction to the recent uptick in mortgage rates as people reassess their budgets to determine how much house they can afford,” said Rick Judson, chairman of the NAHB. NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe said, “However, there is still a great deal of pent-up demand for homes in markets nationwide, and builders continue to report improving consumer interest. This suggests that what we’re seeing is a temporary pause, and that buyers will return to the market once they are confident that the higher mortgage rates are here to stay.” ##
