deputy weaver's attorney for the it melanie woodruff abc 7 news. new york stock exchange welcomed san francisco-based new day impact to ring the closing bell today as the market finished a week-long plunge. the dow took a hard hit on wall street today closing at its lowest level since late 2020 the dow fell 486 points the nasdaq fell 198 points the s&p 500 had lost 64 points and with interest rates rising again the bay area rental market could be severely affected from rising mortgage rates to rising rents abc 7 news reporter stephanie. sierra is digging in what we can expect in the months ahead. she is in the newsroom with the story stephanie. yes, dad as you said rising interest rates and rising mortgage rates, of course our impacting all of us and experts say home buyers turned renters will flood the rental market and with that comes higher prices. the question is how much and how soon could we see it?
6:16 pm
whether it's at the grocery store or the gas pump the cost of everything is up yet. the one thing that hasn't quite returned to pre-pandemic rates the bay area rental market but experts say not for long. the rental prices have come back. i think we can probably see a five a ten percent increase. at least by the end of the year neil candlas of the san francisco-based countless brothers studies the bay area real estate and rental markets sellers cannot get the numbers that they want to sell their home and buyers affordability has significantly changed with the interest rates nearly doubling within the last year once buyers are now going to be renters purchasing power to buy a home has dramatically shifted in the bay area a new report from redfin shows luxury home sales have plummeted 28% across the country, but the decline is twice as severe in the bay area where luxury homes are priced in

the multimillion dollar range estimated to be in the top five percent of the market oakland reporting the largest decline among the country's 50 most populous metro areas a 63.9% drop, san jose. not far behind with a 55% drop. we know the whole housing market is cooling redfin's deputy chief economist taylor. r says it's possible the cooldown may bring some relief to the rental market, but it won't be any time soon. it's for the knock-on effect is actually that owners of these housing units don't want to list it for sale in a really cooling housing market. and so they're listening out for rent. so that supply also is following that demand and which mitigates some of that impact on the rising rents more says that's not expected to happen for at least six months assuming rising interest rates continue to weaken our economy and push the country even further into a recession by the spring of next year. now canla says rents and the san francisco oakland and berkeley
6:18 pm
metro area are still down around 3% compared to pre-pandemic rates and in the san jose sunnyvale and santa clara metro area of rents are down just over 1% from pre-pandemic. but of course factor in these impacts and they could say that change could all change rather in a mere few months from now, so dan certainly that change is predicted to be a five to ten percent increase by the end of the year pretty substantial. yeah, that is painful too steph with that in mind. when is the best time for renters to get the best deals? it's interesting dan that the seasons do play a big role in the rental market mars says usually the best time to start a lease is between november and march because data shows tenants usually save 100 to $300 per month on the same unit during that period compared to leasing during the summer. okay, stephanie. thank you. all right. let's check our weather because the weekend is here it is the weekend. it is indeed. i think you. counting down right and it is
