  NAR: 'Decade-High Rates Deeply Cut Into Contract Signings'  

Pending home sales posting annual losses in double-digits; home buyers continue to back away from market 

House hunters are backing away from the housing market as mortgage rates continue to rise sharply. The National Association of REALTORS®' newly released Pending Home Sales Index-a forward-looking indicator of home sales based on contract signings-fell 2% in August compared to July and is down 24.2% compared to a year ago. This marks the third consecutive month that pending home sales have fallen.

Until then, home buyers are faced with mortgage rates that have doubled compared to a year ago, adding hundreds of dollars to monthly mortgage payments. Yun warned that mortgage rates are likely to rise to near 7% in the coming months. That would mark a far jump from the 2.88% rates just one year ago.
