What is the True Cost of the Interest Rate Increase?

Dear Friends,

It’s probably no surprise that rising interest rates have a significant impact on your pocket book.

But how much of an impact?  The True Cost may shock you!

Consider this:

The average stay in a home is 5 to 7 years

according to the National Association of Realtors®.

Knowing you like to stay informed, we have provided three real-world home buying scenarios in the graphics below.  From these hypothetical comparisons, we hope you can get a better idea of the true cost of the interest rate hikes that are expected in the near future.

Assuming that you remain in your new home for 7 years, it is very clear the HUGE impact of rising interest rates. 

WAITING TO BUY could cost you THOUSANDS of dollars!

(Visit our website to view larger PDF graphics of these three scenarios.)

Home “A” Costs $150,000

At the current interest rate of 4.875%, the monthly payment will be $797.

If you wait until the interest rate rises to 6%,
your monthly payment will increase by $85,
for a total annual increase of $1020!

If you stay in that home for 7 years,
you will be spending $7140 MORE!

What could you do with an extra $7140?

Waiting to purchase this $250,000 home could cost you

$140 per month 
$1680 per year

If you stay in that home for 7 years,
you will be spending $11,760 MORE!

What could you do with an extra $11,760?


What could you do with an extra


Thinking of buying?  Now is a great time, if you want to save $$ in your monthly budget, as well as over the life of your potential mortgage.

Are you waiting for a lower purchase price?

The “savings” of a few thousand dollars off the purchase price will actually COST you THOUSANDS when the interest rates rise.

Don’t wait to make your next Real Estate move.
