Interest Rate & Housing Affordability

While we tend to keep a keen eye on housing prices with respect to affordability, we often overlook the dramatic impact interest rates have on housing affordability.  Consider that an interest rate shift from 4% to 6% increases the monthly payment on a 200,000 loan by 26% in conjuction with the 25% decrease in Salt Lake County real estate prices over the last 4 years.
