Better late than never I say, as our MLS has finally put out the market statistics for the month of September and we are ready to present the Harford County Real Estate Report!  The government may be shut down right now, but the Real Estate market is still alive and well!!  As the debt ceiling limit nears nobody is sure what will happen if no extension is signed, and interest rates could be significantly affected, so contact a lender now and make sure to lock into your rate as a 1% increase in rates can cost you up to 10% of your purchasing power when buying a home!  Compass Home Group partners with some great lenders in the Harford County Real Estate market, contact them today!
