Are you looking to dive into the housing market? If so, mortgage expert Debbie Bloyd advises you to buy now, as rates could go up more in the next year. Currently we are seeing more people buying at increased rates—surpassing asking prices. As families and the lives of many are changing, the housing market is changing as well. It’s time to get informed on what you need to do in order to enter the market and find what you’re looking for. Tune in to get useful pointers from an expert on what is happening in the industry, and what we can expect in the next few months.
