According to the latest data, mortgage rates are up and will most likely continue to rise. There are interesting articles on BankRate.com and WashingtonPost.com referring to this new trend. Although interest rates are still much lower than they have been in decades past, most buyers are getting nervous.
What does the rise in mortgage rates mean to you if you're selling your home? Buyers want to stretch their dollar as far as possible. This means they may be offering less for your home. Boston.com recently published a blog by Scott Van Voorhis that advises buyers to spend less money on a home than they can afford.
