    You may have heard a lot lately that President-elect Donald Trump has made houses more expensive. Has he really? Kind of.

    The change in rates was simply a byproduct of his election. Interest rates went up as a reaction to what they anticipate his economic policies will be. Things are more expensive because anyone who was looking for a home before the election just had their mortgage payment go up.

    What is that going to do to our market? Will it keep going up? Only time will tell. All I can say is that right now, houses are getting a little more expensive.

    Only time will tell what’s going to happen.
