With mortgage rates increased, sales are expected to continue their decrease, as the rates affect buyer affordability and many have had to exit the market given increased rates. Despite a lessening in demand, prices are still expected to increase as we move into the 2nd half of the year, but the rate of increase has slowed and will continue to slow down more.
