Published by: Daisy Gregg Coffee is drink that brings happiness and warmth to everyone that drinks it. Can you tell I love it?? Well in the real estate business you are forced to love it. You not only need it for the late or early hours but coffee is the beverage you make deals over.

It should go without saying that buying a home is a huge step in anyone's life and it requires plenty of planning.

As we talked about last time, interest rates have gone up a bit. So what does that mean for the buyer? Should you wait? Well, since rates are predicted to continue to go up, the answer is no, you should not wait. As this article points out, yes, the record low rates are gone, for now at least. Who knows what the future will hold. Most economist are saying that the next five years will see an increase in rates. So certainly waiting is only going to make your house more expensive. Sure, you could wait for the rates lower than 4% to come back. But you may be waiting a long time. The odds point to us getting back to 6-8% in the next few years, long, long before we get back to the sub 4% rates again. So, don't let a small jump in rates now sc...
