Upcoming By the Numbers Webinars

Past By the Number Webinars

  • Mortgage rates have risen over the past few weeks. At the beginning of 2022, the average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage hit a two-year high. The Federal Reserve has signaled plans to raise rates three times this year, and most economists are forecasting that mortgage rates will hit 4.0% by the end of the year. What should we expect for rates this year? What factors impact mortgage rates? And what will be the impact of rising rates on the housing market? Register for our By the Numbers webinar featuring our Virginia REALTORS® Chief Economist to hear about the latest on mortgage rates and to receive an analysis of how an uptick in rates could affect the housing market and YOUR business.

  • There has been a lot of news recently about rising prices. Home prices and rents have been rising quickly, but the prices of just about everything—from food to gas to travel—are also higher now than they were a year ago. Is the relatively high level of inflation we are currently seeing temporary? Or will higher prices be with us for the long-term? Join our By the Numbers webinar featuring Virginia REALTORS® Chief Economist to hear about the latest on inflation rates and to receive an explanation of the causes of higher prices. In addition, get as well as an analysis of how higher inflation could impact the housing market and YOUR business.
