Podcast: The Pros & Cons Of Higher Mortgage Rates

Today’s podcast goes over the pros and cons of higher mortgage rates. Now that we are in July 2022, we have enough housing data to show that if mortgage rates didn’t rise this year, we were heading toward another year of 15%-20% home price growth. Also, I stress that higher mortgage rates are working, but it needs more time.


I recently wrote about this topic with the most updated charts we have going into July.
