Buyers Market Update for New Orleans Condos, Interest Rates drop Big Time!

    Interest rates dropped to the  mid 5% range for a 30 year note. This is the lowest I can remember rates being in the last several years.  This is a key indicator of a buyers market along with an ample supply of willing sellers.  I expect the rates to remain volatile so if you can take advantage of them its a great time to find a deal.  No telling when they will go up.

     With that said you still want to search for the condo that will have the best chance of reselling in the future.  A .5% drop is equal to $64 per month on your note.  You should also be able to get a seasonal discount as well due to the timing of your purchase.  Less Buyers are in the market this time of year.

You can basically still see all the availiable units in an afternoon.  Just did it Sunday in the Warehouse District.
