    The og way. Get mortgage, house goes up, get heloc, use heloc to pay off original mortgage. I’ve been living the variable way of life since day one (minus a few years of debt free and then realized life is better when in debt)

    Up .75% today alone.

    I'm going to guess by this point there are people who are not just sweating, but on the verge of losing their homes if some haven't already lost them.

    Could be complete carnage if this continues. This is one way to correct housing prices for certain...

    Amazing that a 3.75% rate is going to destroy people, but hey here we are.

    It's difficult, when the outcome of the last few years of decision making has been SO painfully obvious to millions of people, to not think it's an intentional result.

    While I understand your thoughts on this, its a 3.75% rate ON TOP of the already staggering inflation.

    Many lower income people are quite literally drowning and are being forced to take on more debt just to feed their families, which further perpetuates their plight.
    Death by a thousand cuts.

    Our government fucked up big time. Lets just hope people remember this pain when its time to go back to the polls.

    Agree that there are a lot of government decisions prior to this that have hurt the standard of living of voters. Voters don't like that, and they won't like this. Changes to standard of living happen at the margin of costs and income.

    Inflation is always countered with rate hikes. Always. This is the way.

    We just got so used to 0.25% prime that people that actually thought that $1mm mortgage was affordable.

    House prices are sticky.

    Since people are so leveraged, there is a price floor. Lenders will block sales if they lose money on them.

    Supply will dry up. People have to live somewhere, so they'll just stay where they are.

    I was very brave, I stayed inside my house for weeks on end and wore masks even over my eyes.

    Its not the people with $1mm mortgages that I care about.
    Its the lower income, hard working people getting slaughtered by poor policy.

    It hits close to home. I grew up lower income and watched my parents claw their way to prosperity.
    They have some wild stories of how they were dollars away from not being able to put food on the table growing up. Its humbling.

    I don't try to time the housing market, and I don't invest in the housing market.

    I did get wickedly lucky with timing of a big upgrade back in the global financial crisis. I was going from a cheap starter home and could afford a slightly nicer "move-up" house because of the market conditions. That move was based on a change in family size thought, not any kind of smarts on my part. Also haven't moved out of that "move up" house in the 14 years since then. Maybe move in the next decade or so, we'll see.
