The U.S. economy survived the first half of 2023 without going into a recession, as consumers turned out to be more resilient than most economists expected. Despite going through high inflation rates, banking crisis, and debt ceiling issues in the first six months of the year, consumers remain upbeat, and their confidence recovered somewhat in recent weeks. The housing market, on the other hand, has continued to encounter headwinds since late 2022, as rates stayed elevated and housing supply remained tight. With an increase in home building activity at the national level, we could see some slight improvement in market conditions in the U.S., but tight inventory will likely remain the norm in California in the second half of the year until rates start coming down meaningfully.

This has resulted in mortgage rates falling for the second consecutive week, reaching their lowest level in a month.
