Huntsville weekly real estate update

As inflation continues to surge and with the chatter of an impending economic downturn in the air, mortgage rates are growing at the quickest speed in 40 years with a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage last week reaching the highest point since 2009 at 5.53%. 

Consumers are being stretched thin due to inflation—from the gas pump to the grocery store—and are starting to decelerate their spending from last year. Experts expect a real estate slow down in the next couple of quarters: There are 70 regional housing markets with a more than 40% chance of seeing prices for homes dip in the next year, according to CoreLogic assessment of the biggest regional housing markets in the U.S.

To help you stay current on the market, ZeroDown compiled a weekly real estate market report using data from Redfin. Statistics are as of the four weeks ending May 15, 2022. Metros with more than 50 homes sold during this time period were considered for metro-level rankings for each statistic.
