According to Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Survey" Yes, rates are higher than they were a year ago – and certainly higher than two years ago. But if you look at the averages over the last four decades, today's rates remain historically low." "The same home you considered buying a year ago with a $200,000 mortgage would now cost about $90 more in interest payments per month, or about $1,080 per year, given the rise in mortgage rates since last year."  Let's put it into perspective, Rates are still historically low, and they do not for see them dropping in the near future.  If you are thinking of buying or selling your home, this chart shows why now is a good time! You may be

How much can I afford to buy a House?  Depending on whom you ask, you may get different answers.  There are many sites on the internet with
mortgage calculators, and this can give you a rough estimate. How much you
can afford is unique for everyone, and is based on your income, savings, credit
history, and location.  I always advise my clients to speak to a reputable mortgage broker, they will go over the proper steps of obtaining a mortgage and give you a preapproval letter for the amount of mortgage you qualify for.  This gives you the knowledge of what you can afford, and you will be prepared to start your home search and the power to make an offer.
