They remained the same, but thinking had the rates hiked 1%, it really would have made a difference for a bit.  Then buyers would remember the rates are STILL low.

In the short run, I believe it will increase sales as people will finally understand that rates are headed up.

Not much.  We've been down this road many times before and people still buy homes - the world of real estate doesn't stop because of interest rates.  That said should we ever get so high of interest as back in the 80's that is a different story.

I am all for the niormalization of interest rate. With rampant home value, food etc. I am surprised it does not translate to inflation....

Even with an increase the mortgage interest rates will still be very low and a bargain for prospective mortgage borrowers.

Historically, when interest rates increase, buyer become more motivated.

Sales volume will increase with a parallel increase in value.

The increase in the rate will be perceived as a positive indication of the strength  of the economy therefore greater job security.

Winston - It will depend on how high the Fed decided to raise interest rates, and if we start seeing a trend. If it is a minor increase once a year, I don't think I will have much of an impact until it goes over 6.0 percent.

With the fact the FEDs have not raised rates has done more damage than to raise them, it systematically setting up a worse buble than in "08". Just one man's opinion.

Not raising them.  If they did I don't see an impact other than quite possibly low income or first time buyers.

Those that can buy will continue. These rates are too good to pass on. However, people need jobs and income. That is the core of it all

Historically, a Fed increase has led to better pricing as it eliminates the 'threat of inflation' which is a  bond holders biggest fear.
