  • Mortgage rates soared above 7 percent this week, the highest level in 21 years and far exceeding rates recorded during the 2008 housing market crash
  • Luxury home sales in the US have sunk by 28.1 percent year-over-year in August, beating out the previous record drop of 23.2 percent in June 2020
  • Markets in Oakland, San Jose, Miami, San Diego and Seattle have seen the biggest hits this year as all 50 major metro areas have been impacted 
  • Non-luxury home sales across the nation have also dipped by 19.5 percent 
  • Economists said the drop in sales can be attributed to soaring federal interest rates and high inflation
