Summer Selling Season, Just 'Peachy'

June 23, 2023

The Oldham Group Austin | Courtney Oldham

Mortgage Rates Steady & Sales Volume Up

Inflation continued to decelerate last month—in May, headline inflation moderated to +4% YoY and +0.1% MoM, while core inflation—which strips the more volatile categories of food and energy—measured +5.3% YoY and +0.4% MoM. However, inflation remains well above the Federal Reserve’s long-term target of 2%.

Mortgage rates remained steady, ending last week at an average of 6.69%. That’s down slightly from a recent high of 6.79%, but still elevated. Until economic activity declines or the Fed signals sufficient price stability, it’s unlikely that mortgage rates will meaningfully decrease.

On a week-over-week basis, Austin area pending sales ticked up 5% in while closed sales rose over 50%. Active listings held steady, but new listings declined nearly 10%
