February Education Series for Realtors: All Things Interest Rate

Rates:  How they work. What affects them. How to sell using rates in today’s market.

Rates have been a hot topic for the last few years.  As they plummeted into the low 3’s when COVID hit and then essentially double in 2022 when the country experienced huge inflation numbers.  This will not be a boring presentation about rates.  We are going to touch on what’s going on overall with rates. However, the main purpose of this event is to show you how a rate is determined for an induvial buyer.  We will talk about things buyers can do to help improve the rate they are being offered.  We will talk about programs that have very attractive rates and discuss things sellers can do to help lower the rate for a buyer.  A lower rate equals more buying power for a home buyer and everything we cover will help agents sell more homes in 2023.    The market is back to normal and it’s still a great time to buy.

Hot Topics We Will Cover

Here is a list of some of the things we will cover during the event:
