As High mortgage rates are starting to cool the market and inventories are starting to rise.. Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at Realtor.com, said most housing markets across the United States “remain in the seller’s market area,” but “the market is a bit easier to buy than we saw last month and will be in the future. I expect it to continue. “
