When Will Interest Rates Go Back Down

Performance Property Real Estate Question

Q: Interest rates keep going up.  When do you think rates will go back down? Bill, Kenilworth, NJ

A: Many Fed watchers expect the Fed to lower interest rates in mid 2023 under the assumption that inflation falls back to the Fed’s 2% target. The direction interest rates will move depends on 2 things: 1) how persistent inflation is over the next 6-9 months and 2) if we are in a full blown recession by mid 2023. If inflation is lower, rates are likely to go down and if we are in a full blown recession in mid 2023, the Fed will likely lower rates. Thanks for your question, Bill.
