The median house prices, which exceeded $ 400 thousand for the first time in the second-hand market, reached a record level.

NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, whose views were included in the statement, stated that house sales returned to the levels seen in 2019.

Pointing out that house sales may decline further in the coming months, given the difficulties arising from the sharp increase in mortgage (home loan) interest rates, Yun noted that affordable houses are being sold rapidly and the housing stock still needs to increase significantly.

According to data from US mortgage company Freddie Mac, the average interest rate for 30-year mortgages in the country hit 5.78 percent last week, the highest level since November 2008 and recorded the highest weekly increase since 1987. .
