Back to Real Estate. I have been giving you some information on events in the area, but know back to basics. I still see there are interest rates for home buyers for a 15 year note at 3.1 %. What a great time to buy. I also heard yesterday that a mortgage person predicted that rates may even go down. House prices seem to be leveling off some, and rates are going down, so it may be the time to buy. Check with a lender and see what rate you might get if you are thinking about purchasing a home. Our office can give you some contact names for mortgage loans in the area.
