Homebuyers have faced challenges recently, but there are signs that the struggle might be in the past. It's no secret that mortgage rates have skyrocketed and the cost of homes has increased– both of which have added to the cost associated with purchasing and owning a home. “What we are likely to see is that fewer buyers will be able to afford this housing market,” says Dr. Jessica Lautz, vice president of demographics and behavioral insights at the National Association of Realtors.

This summer’s housing market can still be expected to remain a sellers' market. Buyers shouldn't expect to have the upper hand in negotiations or have an easy time finding deals. But buyers should take advantage of the extra available to view homes and put together offers. As a buyer, supply and demand are huge factors, housing inventory is still rigorously low, and the market is likely to stay strong. Instead of seeing prices drop, they are expected to grow but at a slower pace.

If you’re planning on buying or selling a home during the summer 2022 homebuying season, take a look at what these three experts believe the real estate market to look like and what you can do about it.

Predictions for the Summer 2022 housing market

Substantial price gains, intense competition, and more have been known to stifle the home buying process in the past, and now with mortgage rates continuing to be on the rise, what does that mean for potential homebuyers?

For many, higher rates mean increasing price ranges. But when even basic single-family homes are coming with the price tag of a lavish pad these days, buyers are having to choose between postponing their purchase or compromising on their preferred location. “The Fed has promised another interest rate boost. If you’re ready to buy, don’t wait because prices aren’t headed dramatically downwards to what our parents paid. Things might dip a bit, but there’s no cliff dive that’s going to happen," said Tabitha Mazzara, Director of Operations at Mortgage Bank of California.

Forbes Magazine partnered with mortgage and realty experts to make predictions for the housing market this Summer season. Read their full report here.
