Moving into Spring, Markets Remain Very Heated
So far in 2022, Bay Area real estate markets appear largely unfazed by higher interest rates, volatility in financial markets, and troubling international events. The prevailing dynamic remains one of strong buyer demand competing for an inadequate inventory of listings for sale: Crowded open houses, multiple offers, fierce overbidding, and fast sales remain common. That is not to say there haven’t been buyers negatively impacted by higher loan rates and/or recent declines in stock portfolios; and some buyers and sellers have become more hesitant or paused their plans, awaiting more clarity amid recent developments. But not enough to move the needle on the fundamentally high-demand/low-supply conditions which dominated 2021.
As typical at the start of the year, the number of new listings coming on the market and the number of listings going into contract continue to rise. These normally climb rapidly through spring, characteristically the biggest selling season of the year. (Autumn is also a bug selling season, but significantly shorter.)
This report will review a number of standard indicators, as well as home values, interest rates, factors that can affect real estate markets, and now much market cycles have broadly played out over the last 4 decades. March and April data will soon provide further indications of the market’s direction in 2022.

Benchmark Mortgage Rate Dips with a Flight to Safety in Play
Having slipped 3 basis points (0.03 percentage points) last week, the average rate for a benchmark 30-year mortgage has since pulled back another 13 basis points to 3.76 percent with the Fed’s expected quarter point hike having been priced in and a flight to safety over the past week driving up the price of bonds.
Rate Hikes Will Hit Borrowing Quickly, Boost Savings Slowly. Here’s What to Do.
Borrowers are likely to see interest rates go up on credit cards, personal loans, home-equity lines of credit, private student loans and other debt later this month if the central bank raises short-term interest rates as expected. But savers shouldn’t expect to see higher interest rates for savings accounts or certificates of deposit right away.
