Apr 16, 2014 Comments Off on Real Estate Interest Rates Going Up in 2014 by

If you’re considering moving to Austin, and more importantly buying a home, it is in your best interest to buy a home sooner than later. In 2012, home mortgage interest rates bottomed out and started climbing back up. While we’re still experiencing historically low rates, interest rates for the first quarter of 2014 are just over 1.3% higher than the lowest rate in 2012. Rates are expected to continue to go up and are hovering around 4.25% to 4.5%.
