Mortgage Rates for July 1, 2024

Dr. Selma Hepp, chief economist at CoreLogic, notes that the Fed’s June 12 announcement reaffirms its higher-for-longer interest rate stance. However, she highlights the growing strain on American households, which are cutting back on spending. As economic indicators worsen and unemployment rises, Hepp predicts the Fed will eventually cut rates, though the timing remains uncertain. The first-rate cut may come once consistent signs of disinflation appear, potentially later this year. Despite economic conditions, personal circumstances often drive home-buying decisions, and it might be beneficial to accept higher rates now and refinance later to start building equity sooner.
