Buyers beware! According to RealtorMag, interest rates are set to rise this summer. While nothing is ever guaranteed, prospective buyers are being advised to start their home shopping now to avoid those increases.

From the article…

Rate increases—even minor ones—can add up over time.

Calculated over the life of the loan, that is more than an extra $51,000. “Buyers thought they could wait forever because rates were going to stay low forever,” says Palacios. “They’re starting to realize that if they’re going to buy, they should probably buy now.”
