“Buyers Taking Advantage of Higher Interest Rates”


I can’t believe it; they accepted our offer. Since interest rates have been climbing, we decided to offer the asking price rather than going over. We’re not sure if there were any other offer, but we are delighted with the purchase price.

A couple of months ago, we sent you all the documents you requested, I am assuming you need updated pay stubs and bank statements, anything else? We should have the signed purchase agreement tomorrow, we’ll forward all to you tomorrow.

Thank you for all your help! Beth


For sure interest rates have risen and will continue to move up, many buyers are recalculating their numbers are now not offering above the listing price in other to offset higher interest rates. Will this trend continue, most buyers that I speak with believe that will be the case. What do you think?

Joe, I believe the interest rate climb will hurt those most in the entry level home prices.  Those that just barely qualify, and have worked hard to do so, and with the increase in interest rates now do not have proper debt to income ratio.  Don't have extra money to make up the difference.  Buyer numbers at entry level will see the affect first and slowly work its way up.  Mark
