Spring is here and the real estate market is seeing an uptick in activity. However, interest rates are also UP-ticking. Today, interest rates are hovering around 7% and this takes a big chunk of someone's mortgage payment. So, it is keeping our normal spring boost in activity at a subdued level. All the stats are below. We definitely felt a boost in executed contracts towards the middle of February. But, I'm curious to see if we can sustain the increased activity if the government keeps hiking interest rates UP.
