With the exception of Fannie Mae, the experts agree that interest rates will increase by three-quarters of a percentage point, costing you significantly more to pay back your loan.

Bottom Line

Even a small increase in interest rates can put a dent in your family’s wealth. Based on the projections of where interest rates are headed, the sooner you buy a home the better. Waiting could cause you to wind up paying considerably more for your next home.
