Webinar: Fluctuating Interest Rates: Effects on the CRE & Housing Markets and Considerations for Appraisers

May 16 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

The CME FED Watch Tool coagulates data from interest rate trends to share the percentage possibility that the FED will change the target rate at their next meeting.
Between February and March 2024, the probability that interest rates would remain the same at the May 2024 meeting of the FED jumped from 24% to 40.5%, according to the tool. All eyes are zeroed in on expectations for the FED’s next meeting on June 11, 2024.

While appraisers can’t afford to spend time predicting the FED’s next move, being knowledgeable about, and flexible during, interest rate changes is essential. That is why our panelists will discuss:

  • What do current and expected interest trends mean for the volume of property sales and mortgage refinancers?
  • Evaluating comparables amid fluctuating interest rates
  • Strategies for speaking with clients about the impact of interest rates on their appraisals
