This is a question that I am often asked and depending upon the market the answer varies. In our current market, we are seeing some areas with multiple offers and most cities with extremely low inventory levels for the month of June. This helps to keep values steady and or on the rise.

With interest rates once again at historic lows I put together a couple of examples showing just how much a ½ percentage point in rate can change many buyers thinking.

In this example, you would basically get a home valued at $100,000 more for about $145 more in payment a month. Peanuts in the grand scope of things! Rates tend to rise when home values fall.
