When mortgage rates go up 1%, your budget goes down 11%. Prices are also projected to go up 5% this year.

Not a fan of percentages? Here's an example using dollars:

January 2022: Your budget is $400,000, and the home is $400,000. Buy it!
January 2023: Your budget is now $365,000 thanks to a 1% rate hike, and that same home is worth $420,000. 

30-year fixed mortgage rates are projected to get to 4% by the end of the year, and home prices are going up another 5%. The right time to buy a home was 5 years ago. That same sentence was true 5 years ago. Don't get caught waiting and missing out. There's a reason big investors are going heavy on real estate right now.
