Living Urban in Denver: Real Estate Blog

There are so many ways to style your home for the holidays, and we are loving this rustic simplicity that's trending right now.

If not, hang in there, and watch our blog over the next few weeks as we feature other holiday decorating styles!

It's one of the most common questions that we get as Real Estate professionals:

Are interest rates going to go up in the near future?

And, although we certainly don't have a magic crystal ball (we SO wish that we did!), we look to the experts to pass along their predictions. This information was just released by Freddie Mac, and we think it's important to note that as rates go up, purchasing power goes down.

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is getting closer to moving over 4 percent, as mortgage rates climb for the second week in a row. Freddie Mac reports that fixed-rate mortgages are rising in anticipation of a possible rate increase by the Federal Reserve and a recent strong jobs report.
