We are all feeling the pinch of rising costs – at the grocery store, at the gas pump and restaurants. The real estate market is no different. During the pandemic home prices rose rapidly with many buyers facing a bidding war and having to pay way over asking price.
Things have changed since then. Prices have stabilized and many buyers say they are hesitant to wade into the housing market with the rising interest rates.  But you should think twice before waiting for lower home prices. Here's why:
