2023, What a year so far!!!
2023 is another matter: We have had interest rate increases, points are back and must be brought down, and the rules regarding who and how you qualify for loans have changed. Many people who qualify for loans do not qualify for as much now or not at all. I must be creative -nothing routine in this business now. Financing is more accessible when the rates are around 7-9% since lenders enjoy a higher return. As a country, we have gotten used to lower rates for buying but have forgotten all the savers who have been short-changed for the past decades.
