Many Boston Home Buyers Scramble for Mortgage Loans

imageHome buyers know too well the down side of the rising mortgage interest rates. They have been in love with the rock bottom rates which have significantly increased their purchasing power. The rising interest rates have sent some buyers into a panic rushing around trying to find a piece of property to sign their names on before the Fed bankrolled gravy train ends. Boston home buyers are not the only ones scrambling to protect their backsides as the rates start to climb, the bankers are too. Unfortunately, the buyers may soon find that mortgages, which are already hard to come by, may also get tougher as rates head back up. Higher rates may eventually boost mortgage lending, as rates begin what is likely to be a long, slow rise, the banks may start tightening up on their lending.
