“What Does Recession Mean to Us?”

   “What Does Recession Mean to Us?”







Hey Joe,

You have always been my go to guy when I have questions that have to do with real estate and mortgages. I keep hearing the word recession, what the hell does that mean when it comes to our plans for moving. As you know, this fall we plan on moving to NY, should we reconsider? Will interest rates be going up? What do you think will happen to the value of our current home?



Many are asking similar questions, so let me share some thoughts.

First, interest rates will remain low and most likely go lower. The 2020 election will have an effect on interest rates after that.

Second, in most of the states that I do mortgages the values have stayed steady. There are some pockets where values are still increasing and there are some pockets where values have peaked and there is downward pressure. Your Realtor or one referred to you is the best source of information, NOT an online site or your TV.


I have referred this client to a Realtor in his area of Connecticut and to the area they are planning on moving to. It is extremely important to make decisions based on good information.

Good morning, Joe Petrowsky there's no recession now or in the near future.... the economy is strong.... and interest rates are low.... the market changes consistently and that's the reason to participate when the market is stable...
