I read today that prognosticators are indicating interest rates may exceed 10% next year. I also read where those same folks are saying home values could decline 15% next year. The former is not great, but the latter could be very good for buyers. Not bad for sellers either since home values are up way over this 15% over the past 2 years.As to the rates, I know, not great.

It eventually went to 13.75%, but for a number of years after that it declined and I was able to refinance 5 times. Eventually my rate dropped to 1.8%!I guess what I am saying is that even if rates are not exactly where you want them to be, sometimes owning that special home i...
