Now, let's talk about interest rates. The stock market has been strong in the last couple of weeks, and inversely, mortgage rates have remained a little bit higher. Currently, we're right at that seven percent mark for a 30-year fix when we look at averages nationwide. But, I will tell you that a lot of the buyers we've seen seem to be content with that number. They're more concerned with finding the right property and are okay with the rates where they are currently.
