Alert! Time To Buy Now In Arizona

From (CNNMoney):

"Mortgage rates moved to within a hair of the 4% barrier this week, according to mortgage giant Freddie Mac.

The average rate for 30-year, fixed-rate loans rose 0.07 percentage point to 3.98%, and is up 0.63 percentage point since the week of May 2. Rates have not been this high since the week of April 12, 2012.

So if you are thinking of buying a home, why are you waiting? For every 1% rise in the mortgage rate for a $250,000/$300,000 home is the equivalent of about paying $10,000 more for the same house.

So if your are contemplating buying a home, you now better make it a priority because not only mortgage loan rates are increasing, so are home values! A double wham-mo!

Better call me ASAP.
