Real Estate Market Shift
Overwhelming news is all over the media saying that the real estate market is collapsing. Articles from various sources state that “The Housing Market Bubble Just Popped”, “Buyer Cancellations Surge & Housing Affordability Declines Further”, “Housing affordability drops”, and all that.
According to an article from Redfin, the share of sale agreements on existing homes canceled in June was just under 15% of all homes that went under contract. That is the highest share since early 2020, when homebuying paused immediately, albeit briefly. Cancelations were at about 11% one year ago.
Furthermore, CNBC quoted Mortgage News Daily that the average rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage started this year at around 3% and then began rising steadily. It briefly shot above 6% in mid-June before settling in a narrow range around 5.75% now.
These are in fact true, the reasons for the slowdown are higher mortgage rates and surging inflation. These are causing many potential homebuyers to reconsider buying.

So, as mortgage rates rise, the effect on us, the real estate investors, can be positive. The market for rental properties will increase because lesser individuals can be eligible for mortgages. with that being said, rising interest rates reduce prices, so it can sometimes be better to invest during a rising interest rate environment.
Moreover, as interest rates rise, fewer real estate transactions will take place since lending standards will be tighter. Thus, more people will need rental properties until they can afford a mortgage. A slight increase in interest for an investor can turn into a windfall of profit in the right housing market.
