    I heard 30 year mortgages are going to be almost impossible to get.

  • Maria Broman

    No, I don’t think that is true. There have not even been any murmurings to that extent, however interest rates cannot stay this low forever, so we do indeed hear much about interest rates rising, but no one knows how much and when. I suppose this year may remain a bit lower with some increase due to the fact that there are still so many foreclosures still to emerge on the market.

    With the Japan crises they will most likely continue to decline.

    Yeah . . . . remember at the end of 2010 when there was all that press about “interest rates will never be this low again! they’re going up! they’re going up! buy buy buy!” ? Not so much. And that’s a good thing, I think?
