Property prices are leveling out. Interest rates are on the rise. When purchasing property you have to weigh the the two variables. If you are looking to buy real estate you want to obtain the best interest rate that you qualify for to keep your payment low while at the same time selecting the best property at the best price and making the decision before interest rates and prices get too high to afford. Be aware of your options. Do your research and don't be afraid to ask a professional for their advice if you are not sure what to do.
