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.
