November 2022 Mortgage Rates

November 2022 mortgage rates are under pressure as the market is focused on inflation and what the Fed says/does. Mortgage rates have been moving higher since the summer but we are starting to see signs that the economy is slowing, inflation is cooling, and mortgage rates are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Granted it might be a very small speck of light, but for the first time in months, we are seeing one (when it comes to mortgage rates). This could all change without notice though so keep expectations low for the foreseeable future.

Opportunities And Risks For November 2022 Mortgage Rates

 Like previous months, November 2022 mortgage rates are at risk to move significantly higher however the case can be made that we are seeing a “topping out” of mortgage rates as we move into the final months of 2022.

November 2022 mortgage rates will be heavily impacted by the Fed meeting the first week of the month, and a few early data points (mainly CPI which is the second week of the month). 

The risk for mortgage rates is and will continue to be inflation. Even if reports show inflation easing we may still continue to see elevated rates due to market fears that any decrease in inflation might be a short-term phenomenon. 

As always, lock in your rate if it makes sense!
