Interest Rates for Home Mortgages Are On the Rise
Mortgage rates for home loans have begun creeping upwards at a time when consumer confidence has begun to rise. Some analysts are saying that the rates started to rise in anticipation of the spring home buying rush. That is when one of every three homes sales occurs.
The economy is starting to recover, but the housing market is still being hurt by foreclosures and bank-owned property, both of which are driving prices down. With the lower prices and interest rates still around 5%, it is a very good time to buy.
