With mortgage rates climbing, should you wait to buy a house now?

Welcome to Financially Well, the finance podcast for Millennials. In this episode, Kevin Mahoney, CFP® will discuss whether the housing market “reset” that we’re experiencing means you should hold off on pursuing a new house, especially if you already have an affordable rent or low mortgage rate.

Kevin, who specializes in financial planning for Millennial parents, will focus on putting higher mortgage rates into context for you. Your financial calculations related to housing may have changed significantly in recent months. But that doesn’t mean homeownership automatically needs to become a lower priority for you. And it doesn’t mean that the ways in which you want to use your money need to change.
