Thoughts for 2017: The Federal Reserve has raised the Fed Discount rate for the 1st time in years ¼%. They have said the plan to do 3 more increases of around ¼% this year. If regular 30 years rates rise the same it will cost you $117 a month more on a 3$200,000 30 year mortgage than it did last fall. Lower inventories, more jobs, higher rates coming…….Buyers, now is the time to purchase that new home.
