Interest Rates in 2022

Do you want to know what rising interest rates will mean for you and your real estate investment? It’s time for you to learn about borrowing costs that will best benefit your business.

Glenn and Amber Schworm, founders of the Home Flipping Workshop, are here to help you navigate through what you will need to survive the increase in the interest rates in 2022.  

Do not hesitate to click on Glenn’s new video, Interest Rates in 2022 to gain a deeper understanding of how to prepare yourself for what’s on the horizon in the real estate industry.

The 2022 increased interest rates will impact housing sales. Home sales are sure to drop due to the recent spike in the mortgage rates. A mortgage spike will cause a hold-off on a significant number of purchases in the real estate market. 

INTEREST RATES RISING FAST

The economy is fueled by revenue and operates based on access to money. So, when the interest rates go up, the economy’s growth will slow down, which can potentially spiral downward into a recession.

With fast-rising interest rates, demands will decline. The real estate market could start to reduce productivity and instead experience higher borrowing costs.

Slow interest rate increases allow consumers to adjust to economic changes. Rapid growth is unsettling to the economy, hinder investments, and discourage the real estate market. 

However, with the proper support, this does not have to be the case for your real estate business. 

The goal of the Federal Reserve is to promote economic growth and steady inflation. However, the threat of high inflation and the rapid increase in interest rates will significantly increase the possibility of a recession.

WHAT HAPPENS IF INTEREST RATES DOUBLE

The doubling of interest rates is unlikely to cause any crisis in the real estate industry. 

Not many people would be able to afford to buy, yet people will still need to occupy homes, have the resources to do so, but not the credit background to secure the mortgage. 

You will have fewer buyers competing for the property. Here’s where your investment in real estate comes in. 

Rising interest rates cause less stringent real estate guidelines to sustain stability in the market. 

When you hear doubling the interest rate, that does not mean that your payments will double. So, relax, it’s time to strategy for the upcoming market. 

WILL THE MARKET CRASH

One reason for a market crash is that property inventory is limited. Those who have profited from low rates are not willing to sell.

A rise in the interest rate can cause a slight decrease in the market. Real estate businesses may have difficulty getting financing for projects that could hinder their business growth. 

With a slowing economy, interest rates could affect the buyer’s purchasing power. However, a strong labor force encourages the real estate market from rapidly falling.

Rising property demands placed against the backdrop of decreasing property availability can impact the real estate market in different ways. These rising demands could cause a slowdown but not necessarily a crash. 

PREPARING YOUR BUSINESS FOR HIGH INTEREST RATES

Being patient and not taking on large debts or risks is one way to be prepared, and not extending yourself further than what you can afford is another.

Be flexible when the interest rates change. Adjust your finances accordingly to avoid any disappointments overall. 

To prepare your business for interest rate spikes, expand your search for properties beyond your norm. Keep in mind, there are properties that remain affordable outside of what you have considered. 

Do not get distracted by insecurity. 

Focus on the future, and believe you will take the proper steps towards creating success. 

STAYING IN THE GAME

The interest rate increase will undoubtedly influence the real estate market. Staying on top of the current changes is essential. Therefore, establishing a network with the Home Flipping Workshop will benefit your business. 

Let us help you stay in the game, despite the changing market and increased interest rates.

You need to know how real estate interacts with the rising interest rates. Rising interest rates tend to slow down potential buyers and sellers.

Many real estate investors may want to give up when they see the market take a downturn. That means less competition and an increase in clients.

As a result, you should optimize your business towards gaining new clients and continued development of best business practices.

If you plan to stay in the game, these steps are critical to the success of your real estate business in today’s market. 

WILL I BE ABLE TO SECURE AN OFFER

With rising interest rates, finding offers may seem tricky. It could impact purchasing, but it will not paralyze the market.

During this time, the real estate market can be favorable for investing. The demand for specific properties becomes available due to the increase.

Sales may be slow, but purchasing property during an interest rate increase in the real estate market is still possible. 

You are still able to grow your business and increase your profits.

It would help if you did not hesitate to purchase the property. Allow us to educate you on how to find prospective homeowners looking to sell at a lower price. 

Don’t worry, you will be able to secure an offer no matter how high the rates rise.
