Most economists agree that interest rates will rise in 2015 – possibly as early as May – but property experts say the ups and downs of interest rates should never be the ‘be all, end all’ for your buyer clients.

    Rising interest rates was always a given for me, it was just a matter of when. Every Buyer has to consider
    "Acceptable Trade-Offs", and if higher carrying costs have an effect on what kind of a house they will be
    able to get, and where, something may have to change. Perhaps a slightly smaller house, or, getting it
    over there instead of over here. Life is full of adjustments, and this will just be one of them. On another
    note, encourage your Buyers to do it now while the rates are still ridiculously low, however, they should
    be cautioned about rates being higher when the mortgage comes up for renewal, as they may have to re-
    qualify.
