Mortgage Rates Follow Suit

The combination of rising rates, a strong economy, job growth, and a tapering off in home prices creates the perfect recipe for buyers to take action now.



"As long as there is job growth, rising mortgage rates will hinder some buyers; but job creation means second or third incomes being added to households which gives consumers the financial confidence to go out and make a home purchase."


— Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist
