Let's face it, we've been blessed for several years with very low-interest rates.  These low rates have nearly doubled a buyer's buying power over where they have been historically back to the 1980s.  Looking ahead as the Federal Reserve continues to raise the rate mortgage rates are sure to follow.  The mortgage rate has risen about .5% over the last six months.
