Higher Interest Rates May Have a Positive Impact on the Housing Market

Recorded live on Fox Business News, Jeff Taylor and Maria Bartiromo discuss interest rates, job growth and the housing market.

Interest rates are rising but this may actually have a positive impact on the housing market. These higher rates may create an opportunity for banks to assess risk differently, making it easier for consumers to acquire a loan.

Housing is growing quickly in areas with many jobs, but areas in America without high job opportunities continue a slow growth. Millennials, the 25-34 age demographic, had the highest jump last month, serving as a good first-time home buyer indicator.

Tune in now to watch Jeff and Maria discuss these current topics and how they may impact the market.
