“Higher mortgage rates are causing buyers to take a step back from trying to purchase a home,” said Sarah Scattini, President of the Reno/Sparks Association of REALTORS®. “While mortgages are on the rise, we’re seeing an influx in homes being put on the market due to sellers wanting to take advantage of the red hot housing market before a potential cool down, so inventory is growing more rapidly.”
With higher mortgage rates and more homes on the market, those trying to purchase a home are looking at their options wisely. Members of the RSAR are helping these buyers since more people are able to buy a home, who might not have been able to previously.
