Hello all. I have been lurking for a while but finally decided to post just a small vent that I thought most of you would understand. Why the very week we finally find a house and are under contract does it have to be the week the interest rates have jumped way up. When we started this whole process, a few months and several offers ago, the rate was 3.4, today I get quotes of 4.75 or higher on 30 year conventional. Really!! At least this house is 150K less than the first offer we put in, so in the end will be fine, but just one of those frustrations.
