MND — Builder Confidence Remains Resilient Despite Rising Rates. “Mortgage rates may be at the highest levels in more than 3 years, but the housing market has yet to show visible signs of distress. April’s release of the NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) is the latest data supporting that thesis. The headline HMI number is functionally equivalent to builder confidence, and while it is down slightly from the previous month’s reading, it remains in historically high territory. Both the HMI and the “buyer traffic” index remained higher than at any other time before the covid-driven real estate boom.”
MND —Existing Home Sales Feeling The Effects From Rising Rates? “The brutal interest rate spike of 2022 has been all over the news for more than a month, but the strong pace of home sales (or purchase mortgage applications) has been a silver lining to that dark cloud. In data released today by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Existing Home Sales fell 2.7% in March to an annual pace of 5.77 million. <…> This is a fair assessment as long as we assume the recent, moderate decline in existing sales is a reflection of rising rates.”
