Funny there has been no surge around the area I am in...As a matter of fact two of my qualified buyers have told me they will go "on hold" as they feel Housing Prices should drop due to an increase in rates :evil:

Just 45 days ago there were those who thought rates were going lower; they have moved to the refi sidelines and now the purchasers may do the same :evil:

There is no winning in this game right now. Permalink
