Mortgage Rates for July 2, 2024

Inflation has cooled, but homebuyers still face high prices and rates. The Fed held off on changing interest rates at their June 12 meeting, maintaining a “higher-for-longer” stance. Dr. Selma Hepp, chief economist at CoreLogic, notes that this position seems increasingly untenable as households reduce spending and unemployment rises. The Fed may cut rates once disinflation signs are consistent, potentially later this year. Despite economic conditions, personal factors often drive homebuying decisions, and it might make sense to accept higher rates now and refinance later to start building equity.
