River Falls WI housing market is starting to show the early stages of a housing market correction. Both new listings and the number of closed sales are down 8.3%, and 10.4%. Home appreciation in the month of April 16.2% average sale price appreciation, but this will start to fall as we continue into 2022. The number of showings per listing are declining. More sellers are reducing their list prices after going on the market at a faster rate. Mortgage and new construction applications are slowing. More importantly 30-year mortgage interest rates have climbed faster than anticipated to 5.5% and higher pushing more and more potential buyers out of the housing market. The Federal Government is going to continue to raise mortgage interest rates through the end of 2022 to combat inflation. The end result is the supply and demand in the market saw with too many buyers for the number of listings has just started to reverse and we will start seeing fewer buyers, which in turn will drive home inventory upwards. We are at an inflection point and as we go deeper into 2022 we will start to see flat lining of home prices, and appreciation.
