October 21st, 2022 9:26 AM
Sales of previously occupied U.S. homes fell in September for the eighth month in a row, matching the pre-pandemic sales pace from 10 years ago, as house hunters grappled with sharply higher mortgage rates, rising home prices and a still tight supply of properties on the market. The National Association of Realtors said Thursday existing home sales fell1.5% last month from Augustto a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.71 million.That’s slightly higher than what economists expected, according to FactSet. Meanwhile, Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac reported Thursday that the average on the key 30-year rate tickedupthisweek to6.94%from6.92%lastweek. Last year at this time, the rate was 3.09%. The average rate on 15-year, fixed-rate mortgages, popular among those looking to refinance their homes, jumped to 6.23% from 6.09% last week.
