It’s hard to believe, but it was only a year ago when a 30-year fixed mortgage rate was around 3%. The sudden and rapid rise of the rate has been unnerving for homebuyers and sellers (and observers) alike. What are we to make of it? Well, we are grateful for our trusted partner and mortgage professional, Scott Bothel of North Pacific Mortgage, for his insight and thoughtful explanation on today’s mortgage environment and what it means for us.
Have you ever considered inviting your parents to live with you and your children? If so, you’re not alone. Our trusted partner and real estate professional, Brooke Knight of Good Knight Homes, tells us that according to census data, multi-generational households have increased four-fold between 1971 and 2021. We are grateful for her knowledge and willingness to share her insights on building a happy multi-generational home.
