Rates are going down again and the timing makes you wonder if this is a holiday gift for weary buyers and sellers. Will these lower rates kick start the real estate market for 2009? How long will these rates last? Will they go even lower?
I have read some great and interesting articles lately regarding the economy and interest rates. Some feel that lowering interest rates is not enough to get buyers interested. They feel home prices are still too high and buyers are only buying the best values.
Well, that's pretty much always true. In a normal market, the best homes in a buyer's price range are the one's that will be purchased. The overpriced homes will sit until the sellers start reducing.
But our inventory is still very lopsided compared…
