With rates increasing, is now the right time to buy?

We’ve all seen it. Rates have increased over the last handful of weeks and months. Clients are hearing it on the news, internet and TV and questions are arising. The question we keep hearing is “With rates increasing, is now the right time to buy?”

Most times, we discover that people are asking the question as they believe home prices will drop as interest rates rise. While this makes sense on the surface, let’s take a look at history:

According to calculatedriskblog.com, the last four significant mortgage rate hikes were in the years ’83-84, ’87, ’93-94 and ’99-00. On average, interest rates increased 2%. What do you think home prices did during these same timeframes? They went up!

Rate

During those same timeframes, home prices went up 5.975% on average. Crazy right?

Home

So why did home prices go up as interest rates were rising? Namely, mortgage rates tend to rise steadily when the economy is strong (much like it is now in early 2018). Similarly, home prices tend to rise when when the economy is performing well, too. This is what we see happening today. Interest rates are on the move but it appears, at least locally, to have little to no impact on the continued increase in home prices.
