Nothing brings more fear to the hearts of homebuyers, home sellers and Realtors than “Rising Interest Rates.” Economist point to a phenomena call “Hyperbolic Discounting” as the reason why consumers discount future inevitabilities thinking that it won’t affect them. We may be seeing hyperbolic discounting happening now as buyers and sellers discount what many experts see as reality. For those experts “Rising Interest Rates” are not some far off “maybe” but a certain reality. Many point to a “normal” mortgage rate of 8% …nearly twice the current rate. What would it mean to you if mortgage interest rates doubled? There would be a sharp increase in monthly mortgage payments that would make purchasing a home out of reach for many who want to become homeowners and put a big dent in family budgets that most certainly negatively impact monthly spending. Rising Interest Rates are a virtual certainty in the not so distant future. Those who wait too long to sell or buy just might find themselves victims of a shifting real estate market.

"Jennifer held our hands through the process and kept us informed about what was happening. I asked thousands of questions and received great information. Jennifer was often available and worked with our busy schedule to help get things done. Even once we were in escrow, she was helpful with lots of recommendations for price estimates on the projects that the house needed even setting some of them up along with all the inspections. We are overjoyed to be the proud owners of a great new home and are so appreciative to Jennifer Martin for helping us find and buy that home!"
