The Sky ISN’T Falling! Fed Rate Hike Discussion

I hope you are all ready for Christmas time, it is getting here too quickly!

I want to direct you to an article that was brought to my attention yesterday that outlines the reasons that the change in the Federal Reserve's long standing position of no rate increases won't necessarily mean a direct correlation to an increase in interest rates for homes. It has to do mainly with the fact that interest rates are affected more by the bond/fixed securities market, which is not expected to change much just yet.

CHECK THE ARTICLE OUT HERE, and please feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email with any questions!

    The Fed raising interest rates is actually a good thing. 

    1. It keeps inflation under control. The last thing that anyone wants is out of control inflation rises like in the 1980's. We don't need any more stupid WHIP buttons. 

    2. Raising interest rates allows the Fed to try and control another financial meltdown if that occurs again as one of the Feds main tactics is to lower interest rates. Leaving interest rates at 0 doesn't allow that change.
