mortgage interest rates: Is It a Buy Now Scenario for Home Buyers! - 07/13/10 05:47 AM
When thinking of buying real estate, which market would you rather be in? A Buyer's market or a Seller's market? Not too difficult to figure is it? When looking to buy a home in a seller's market, a home buyer may experience a shortage of available homes to look at, may have to compete with other buyers interested in the same home and may be in situations where there are multiple contract offers from home buyers interested in the same home resulting in bidding wars among buyers and higher sale prices.

Great News For Home Buyers and Home Sellers! Mortgage Interest Rates Are Below 5 %. Consider the benefits.
