What happened in Montecito Last Week?
September 25th - October 1st
The West Coast was the only region to record an increase in pending sales, rising 1.4 percent to 71, but was down 31.3 percent from August 2021. “The direction of mortgage rates – upward or downward – is the prime mover for home buying, and decade-high rates have deeply cut into contract signings,” NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. said in a statement. “If mortgage rates moderate and the economy continues adding jobs, then home buying should also stabilize.” —Ben Verde
