Another Housing Bubble?

Interesting article I thought I'd share before the irrational buying begins in the spring ;-)

Re: Another Housing Bubble?

Forget Spring. Its already happening.....

 

Prices (per sq ft) are already up about 5-10% in my neighborhood, since we bought last year.

 

My guess is that the "new, even lower" interest rates, courtsy of the Fed, will be driving the Spring Market, this year.

 

Last Spring, rates were at "historic lows", near 4%. And we all said WOW, rates cant get lower.

 

This year, so far, rates are closer to 3% (than 4%), and that makes a large difference (10%) in buying power.

 

I'm glad that we are "done" and dont have to spend another Spring going to Open Houses.
