The Cost Of Buying This Year vs Waiting Until Next Year


Interest rates have gone up this year.  As I am writing this vlog post they are currently 5.1% and industry professionals predict they may increase 3 or 4 more times before the end of 2019.  In today's Coffee with Connie, I will give detailed instructions on how to calculate how much more the cost of a home will be for every increase in interest rates.  Specifically, I will show you how much more money you will need to earn if interest rates rise to afford the same home you could purchase now at a lower rate.

Here are links to the websites mentioned in today's video.

How Your "Vibe" Is Having An Impact on Your Life?
