Low-interest rates help with affordability but they won't be around forever.
It is inevitable that interest rates cannot and probably should not stay this low forever. It could be in the next six weeks or the next six months, but rates will start to creep up. How the market responds when they do will say a lot about how far the real estate market has to go.

Just as it can be a challenge to find the right mate, deciding on the right home can be just as difficult. In many markets these days, inventory is limited, and some homebuyers are struggling to find a home that meets all of the criteria on their wish lists. The reality is that homebuyers may need to face the fact that they will need to compromise.
