There aren’t too many financial topics where inflation is considered a good thing.
Taxpayer income brackets, I-Bonds, Social Security indexing, and Cost-of-Living (pay) increases are a few that come to mind.
For a home that you live in (or would like to live in) inflation is a good tailwind for the seller but the buyer experiences a strong head1 wind going into bidding.
There are options as they pertain to hitting the limits. The options include using a 2nd mortgage (Piggyback) to stay under the limbo bar, or swapping in a Jumbo Mortgage instead of the FNMA High Balance or Super-Conforming products. All options have pros and cons which are best processed through a conversation, not a “drop-down” choice on a menu.

1 The additional harmful by-product of inflation has also caused home buyers to assume additional risk in waiving contingencies to remain in the bidding game rather than folding. This equates to additional cost PLUS added risk.
