Sellers! Sell Now Before the Interest Rates Go Up!


Interest rates are hovering at historic lows of ~3.5%. Historical interest rates are 6-7% and have been as high as 15-18% as recently as the 1980s.

U.S. Wins Gold!

A 1% interest rate increase, translates into a roughly 10% increase in the price of a home or monthly mortgage rate. That means that a home that is currently worth $100,000 will be $110,000 or $120,000 with a 1-2% interest rate increase. A monthly payment of $700 will be $770 or $840!


With so few buyers today able to qualify for a mortgage or willing to even buy a home, imagine what would happen with a 1%,2% or 3% mortgage rate increase?


It would price many buyers right out of the market!


The average appreciation of home prices for the last 50 years is 3-4% annually.


So does waiting 1 or 2 years for prices to increase make sense if the equivalent price increase to the buyer is 10-20%?


Sell now before your home loses more value!

Bob- the possiblilty of rising interest rates is always a good signal that it's time to buy.

Election time usually keeps the rates down, but we could see an increase right after - NOW is the time to buy!

Thanks Joan.  I suspect a lot will change after the election.  Not so much Washington, but those waiting to see what will happen in Washington.
