Mortgage Bankers Association Mortgage Forecast Feb 28, 2022

“Mortgage lenders and borrowers should expect rising mortgage rates over the next year, as stronger economic growth pushes Treasury yields higher,” said Michael Fratantoni, chief economist at the Mortgage Bankers Association.  He went on to state, “robust homebuyer demand from millennial households, households seeking more space, and still-low mortgage rates are favorable tailwinds for the housing market in 2022 and are behind MBA’s expectations of record purchase originations over the next two years.”:
