After years of holding firm at historically low levels, mortgage interest rates have started 2018 off with a bang. The 30-year fixed rate has increased 48 basis points since the start of the year, and has increased in eight consecutive weeks. What does this mean for buyers on the fence about home ownership? ACT NOW!
US Weekly average as of 01 March 2018:
30-year: 4.43% (.5 points)
15-year: 3.9% (.5 points)
5/1 ARM: 3.62% (.4 points)
Optimism from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell is sending Treasury yields higher. The economy has been surging, and, even after recent “corrections” to the major indices (DOW, S&P, and NASDAQ), the fixed rate is beginning to reflect a booming economy of record breaking stock prices and exceptionally low unemployment.

Besides a few brief stints in Denver, Colorado, Kendal Cook has spent her life in the Lone Star State and loves it. Born in Houston, Kendal then attended The University of Texas in Austin, before finally landing home in Dallas. Working at the Dallas Business Journal and then moving on to work for home builders, helped hone her love for real estate.
“It’s not a job to me, it’s a career and a passion that I love. Helping people find the right home and seeing them so happy, starting the next phase of their life is what brings me happiness!”
Kendal has been in East Dallas for over 12 years now and lives in Lakewood with her 8 year old son who attends a local private school. She is very active in her son’s school and activities.
“Being a mom is the most important thing in my life. Working with a smaller, family focused company like Rogers Healy and Associates, allows me to combine my two loves. Being a full time mom and a full time realtor while helping people change their lives! It is a true joy to wake up everyday and know that I get to help people and still have time for my son’s soccer games.”
Whether you are looking to buy sell or lease in the Dallas/Ft Worth area, Kendal Cook is excited to work for you!
