It's no secret that many families across Texas are struggling with high inflation rates as inflation hit 8.5% in May. Groceries, fuel, and property have all experienced sharp increases, placing a heavy burden on people.

To combat these rising prices the Federal Reserve Board has lifted the mortgage rate.

So what effect has this had on the housing market? Nationally the number of house sales has dropped by 7.4%, from May 2021 to May 2022. And with estimates of a recession on the horizon, this is predicted to keep falling. This will come as a welcome relief to home buyers, who have seen steep increases in property prices in Texas over the last twelve months.

The median price of a house in Texas increased by 19.2%, from $327,700 to $390,600 over the last twelve months.
