Is it here? Mortgage Rates Inch Backward | David Reed Mortgage Rates Inch Backward – David Reed

Although demand has remained steadfast against the backdrop of this year’s higher borrowing costs, it’s important to note that the growth rate of purchase loan balances has moderated so far this year – and particularly since March. This slowdown indicates that buyers are having difficulty stretching to keep up with the pace of home-price growth.
