According to today's (12/5/09) Washington Post,30-year mortgages are at their lowest level on record @4.71 percent. According to the Post,rates have been "pushed by an aggressive government campaign to reduce borrowing costs".***
It is a great time to buy a home. The lower the rates are the more house you can buy.
With the combination of historic rates and housing prices stabilizing,you should really consider buying. If you need to find a lender,I'd be happy to refer you to somebody.
As far as selling,low rates enable buyers to buy more house than ever and if your home is priced correctly/shows well and is easy to preview,your home will likely sell.
Real estate markets vary by state and by subdivision. I work MetroDc if you want to talk about the market to see if you are comfortable with the housing prices and begin the search with you.
