Today I spoke with David Lashbrook about interest rates and our current market.

Today I’m joined by David Lashbrook of Navigator Mortgage. We wanted to talk about interest rates, our current market, and buyers’ and sellers’ reactions to these. Rates are going up a little bit, but they are still great compared to what they were a couple of years ago. The bigger conversation is how these increases affect buyers’ mentalities about the market.
