While the Federal Reserve is working hard to bring down inflation, the latest data shows the inflation rate is still going up. You no doubt are feeling the pinch on your wallet at the gas pump or the grocery store, but that news may also leave you wondering: should I still buy a home right now?
Greg McBride, Chief Financial Analyst at Bankrate, explains how inflation is affecting the housing market:
“Inflation will have a strong influence on where mortgage rates go in the months ahead. . . . Whenever inflation finally starts to ease, so will mortgage rates — but even then, home prices are still subject to demand and very tight supply.”
No one knows how long it’ll take to bring down inflation, and that means the future trajectory of mortgage rates is also unclear. While that uncertainty isn’t comfortable, here’s why both inflation and mortgage rates are important for you and your homeownership plans. ...

If you're looking for a new home or vacant lot in Northern Wisconsin, using a dedicated Buyer's Agent can make the real estate search much more fun and exciting.
I was chatting with a buyer over the weekend. He had called about a listing that I put on the market last week, which is now under contract. And he was like, that's the one, I finally found the right one. And you know what I usually try to do with the buyer when they call me about a property that I have that's under contract, is I try to talk to them about what it means to have a designated buyer's agent working for you. And I suggested that to him. I said you should be working with somebody local in our MLS, a designated buyer's agent. Have you thought about that? And he did not. He was like, I don't want to sign anything. I want to work with the listing agents, and I want to call on the listings that I see. And I said, Well, I get that, but you probably have a day job. You probably go to your office everyday, and you' ...

Join Julie on a quick tour of Land O' Lakes, Wisconsin. A great Wisconsin destination to vacation or live!
Land O' Lakes is long and lean. And it's beautiful, it takes up the whole northern ridge. The Town is bounded by the Towns of Winchester and Presque Isle to the west, State of Michigan to the north, Town of Phelps to the east, and the Towns of Plum Lake and Conover to the south. So it's really long about 95 square miles township in the northernmost part of Vilas County in Northern Wisconsin. And it is about 83 square miles is land and about 13 square miles is water. The Land O' Lakes, Wisconsin has some fantastic lakes, where I decided to start this video out is I'm on Black Oak Lake. This is about a 545 acre lake which is a stunning 85ft deep. It is long been on the top ten clarity and pristine lakes in Northern Wisconsin. This is a fantastic lake. And it's the whole of the conservative school, which is a semester school, I believe, for juniors in high school where you can c ...
