With rates higher than last year, are you hesitant to buy? Take a look at the Pros/Cons of buying in each year, and the 10 year cost of buying this year at market price with a higher rate to overpaying last year (like buyers had to do to compete) with a lower rate- the numbers may surprise you!
2021 Pros: Low Interest Rates
