Waiting to buy a home until interest rates drop? You *might* want to reconsider.
While it's true that lower interest rates make it cheaper to borrow money, interest rates are just one of a few factors that determine affordability.
Another is demand. When rates drop, demand increases because more people can afford to buy. As a result, prices tend to inch upward as interest rates dip down.
In other words, if you wait to buy a home until interest rates drop, you may find you can't afford the home you want because prices have jumped even more. If the payment makes sense for you now, despite the interest rates, then now is the time to buy!
