August 2023 Newsletter Hawkins-Poe Realtors Section 01 Outlook

The Federal Reserve’s efforts to reduce inflation in the national economy by increasing the Federal
Funds Interest Rate is having its desired effect. The national economy is slowing.

Nearly 84% of Americans have an interest rate below 5% and many are choosing not to move because
they don’t want to trade their current low-interest rate for one which is twice as high.

Higher interest rates and lower demand should cool the price increases we have been experiencing
for the past several years leading to more affordability for home buyers.

July’s numbers reported an exciting increase in inventory, offering home buyers an even wider array
of homes to choose from. With a delightful extension in the average days on the market, prospective
buyers now have the luxury of time to explore their options thoroughly and make confident,
well-informed decisions.
