What High Interest Rates?

There seems to be a lot of commotion about home interest rates rising in the USA banking environment these days.  So because we’ve gone from 3.75% to 4.75% in the course of two years people think the sky is falling.  Really?  You’ve got to be kidding.

Back when I bought my first house in the 80’s, the interest rate environment was a completely different scenario than the current one. I purchased my home at an 17.5% interest rate.  Now that was a high interest rate.   Even as not too long ago as the early to mid 2000’s interest rates were hovering around 8% reaching to 6% by 2008 just prior to the financial crisis.

Because the nation was faced with an almost depression-like scenario, our leaders acted quickly to stabilize financial markets.  It is because of this reason that interest rates went as low as they did, in order to avoid an entire financial collapse.

What’s the moral of the story?  Higher interest rates mean an improving economy.  This results in an all-around better economic scenario for everyone, not just a few.  Because things are better in the USA economy today, we can feel safe with a few basis points higher in interest rates.

And regardless, historically speaking, interest rates as this level are still low.  It continues to be a perfect environment to both buy and sell and maximize your money.
