Rates Heading To 5 Percent?

If you’re thinking about buying a Bend Oregon Home now is a great time for you to get pre-approved for a mortgage loan since most analysts predict that mortgage interest rates will increase to at least 5 percent by the end of the year.

Mortgage Applications Increase

Thanks to the increase in mortgage interest rates more people decided to file mortgage applications this week and the result was an increase in mortgage application filings of close to 10 percent and this shows us that the Real Estate market continues to remain strong in spite of brief dips in activity around holidays like Memorial Day.
