The U.S. mortgage market remained agitated this week as bond yields continued climbing, hitting their highest point since 2008. This trend has been going on for a few months now, spurring fear and uncertainty among homeowners, lenders, and investors alike.
Despite the turbulence, the experts in the mortgage industry maintain that a debt crisis is not an imminent outcome of this situation. The increase in bond yields is attributed to high-inflation expectations, an indicator that the economy is recovering faster than anticipated. Moreover, mortgage lenders are currently operating with a lot of liquidity thanks to the Federal Reserve’s asset purchases, which helps support market demand.
