Slowing? US Closed House Sales Down -9.50% YoY As Mortgage Rates Rise On Fed Tightening (New Listings Down -5.7% YoY)

by confoundedinterest17

US home prices were growing at a near 20% YoY rate for the latest Case-Shiller National home price index report. But mortgage rates have soaring like a SpaceX missile shot.

The result? Closed sales for April 2022 are down -9.5% YoY.

Of course, I am moving to one of the metro areas in the USA where closed sales fell only -1.10% YoY in April: Columbus Ohio. I should move to San Diego CA where closed sales fell -21.4% YoY.

Of course, the US still suffers from lack of available inventory for sale.

April new listings are down -5.7% YoY. Columbus Ohio didn’t change from April ’21. San Diego is down -18.4% YoY for new listings.

Rising mortgage rates? Inflation? What a total fiasco.
