I bring this all up to you to remind you how good of a market we’re in right now. As we continue to see improvements in the economy, improvements with the way people feel about their health, improvements with the vaccine rollouts, you can expect interest rates to go up, and more people will feel comfortable putting their house on the market. But certainly, as rates rise, it has the potential for people to say were not going to go out and buy a home.
