homes for sale in woodbridge virginia: How Long Does It Take To Buy A House In Woodbridge? - 01/31/16 04:09 AM
How Long Does It Take To Buy A House?
First time buyers often have a few myths in their minds about how much time it takes to buy a house.

homes for sale in woodbridge virginia: Why Are Home Loan Interest Rates Rising? - 07/17/15 02:50 AM
Home mortgage rates are up from 2.5% in January to 4% in July 2015. 
Economists forecast rising interest rates on home loans in 2015, with rates reaching 5% by the end of the year.
Why are rates rising?
There are more than one reason why rates are rising.  Other investments are offering investors greater rates of return on their money, causing them to pull their funds away from the bond market that backs home mortgages.
