In the past 32 years working in the real estate industry, I have not experienced a 4-1/2 % interest rate on a 30-year fixed rate loan. It is time to give a lot of thought to purchasing a home in this market.
Are you concerned that home values may decline?
Sure, it is possible but will you ever see 4-1/2% again? That equates to $450 for every $100,000 in the purchase price of your home. Can you rent for that monthly payment? I doubt it. Lets also not forget the tax benefits of owning your own home and the freedom of making your house a home for you and family.
