Real Estate Agent with The Diamond Group @ Keller Williams

When do I know that interest rates have hit bottom?  The same time you know the market has hit bottom



I got an email from a consumer the other day and they asked me to cut the hype and asked 'Are interest rates really that good' Let me put this into perspective, My dad had a ranching loan in 1956 at about 6%, 1978 interest rates were between 18-21%, and in the hot markets of the late 90's early 2000's we saw 7-9%. So what do you think of 3.25% for 15 years and 4.25% for 30! YES THEY ARE GREAT!!!

Elizabeth: If you, the buyer, is able to get such a loan, go for it. Properties are certainly well below anything we've seen for a long time as well. Investors are snapping them up. That should be an indication of a "good buy". Thank you for this blog.

Buy, Buy now because the rates are just as low, low as they will get.  I sold homes during the painful 19% interest rate time period.  You are right, we will go up!

Hella, it's crazy to think that loans can go for less and even if they do grab the brass ring NOW!

Connie, yes that was an agonizing market, hope not to see that again

Incredible is the word to best describe our time, right now....let's all go get our unfair share
