Any educated guesses on when interest rates go back down to 3-4% range again?

Months?
Years?
Once we have a new administration?

My guess is not any time even remotely soon

If rates get pushed back to 3%-4% in the next two years the dollar is done.

My guess is we go a little higher from here and hold for the next few years until supply chains stabilize.

This is my opinion only as we can only guess what the Feds will do.

Historically mortgage rates have been in the 6 to 8% range. The 3-4% range of the last decade are as much an anomaly as the 10-15% rates of the early 80s.

We may not see 3-4% again for decades.

Not in the next 5 years. Start saving for that down payment.

Low interest rates were great, but you have to understand the problems that were created and existed in order to get us there.

Unfortunately, you had better hope we don't see them again any time soon as this means we are driving this thing off the cliff again.

This is the right answer. I think the fed capitulates one more time before we're done and bringing rates back down. But who knows? Maybe they have a backbone this time.

If interest rates go back down to recent low range, it likely means a choked out economy is coughing up blood. The sweetness of low interest rates will have bitterness all over it.

6+% is the long term average for a 30 year mortgage. 2, 3 and 4% were not normal. So why expect something that isn't normal?

Buy what you want to buy. You will refi 2 or 3 times over the nest 15 years anyway. I bought a house about 20 years ago and paid 7.5 or something like that on a 3 yr adj, refinanced it down to 5.875 a few years later, then 4.5 a few years later and then 3.0 a few years later. Each time I refi'd I thought "rates will never get lower than this".

That window has closed. Interest rates will continue to go up until we get to recession and high unemployment. It’s the only thing the Fed can do to reduce inflation. Of course, the idiot in the White House will do everything he can to make things worse.

If your goal is to bring about the great reset, it is willful, not ignorance.
