76.7% of the closings for the month February was on the market 30 days or less, in January this number was at 71.3% and in February 2021, 66.7% of the homes were on the market 30 days or less.
The average 30-year fixed rate in the U.S. was 4.12% as of Feb. 22, according to a survey of rates from Mortgage News Daily, Freddie Mac, the Mortgage Bankers Association and the Federal Housing Finance Agency. That’s up from 3.78% at the beginning of February and up 3.27% at the end of 2021.
As interest rates move higher, it reduces the amount buyers can afford even further. Housing was unaffordable for many consumers even before rates began to climb. With rates and prices continuing to rise, some buyers could find themselves priced out of the market altogether this year.
