Real Estate Interests Rates Hit a 40 Year Low

“Yet the falling rates have yet to spark a home-buying boom — or energize the economy. New-home sales collapsed in May after homebuying tax credits expired. The economy also remains under pressure from high unemployment. And many people don’t qualify under tightened lending rules”.
