Prime Rate Prediction

Prime Rate Forecast

As of right now, our odds are at 100% (certain) the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will vote to raise the target range for the benchmark fed funds rate, from the current 0.00% - 0.25%, to 0.25% - 0.50%, at the March 16TH, 2022 monetary policy meeting, with a concurrent bump up for the United States Prime Rate (a.k.a Fed Prime Rate) to 3.50%.


The Commerce Department released New Home Sales figures today. The record-high median price on a newly built home has been updated to $421,500, set back in October 2021. The record-high average price, also from October, was updated to $486,600.

As for preowned homes, The record-high prices remain at $362,800 (median; June 2021) and $381,200 (average; June 2021.)

The December 2021 Consumer Price Index reading was +7.036% year-on-year, an alarming surge in prices which virtually guarantees that the Fed will raise rates at least once this year, and most likely by 25 basis points (0.25 percentage point) at the March 16, 2022 FOMC meeting.

The current U.S. Prime Rate was lowered from 4.25% to the current 3.25% on March 15TH, 2020.
