It's time to take another deep look into rates and ways to finance your properties. Jason talks to lender Aaron about what's going on in regards to rates today, how it's been changing in the last few months, and where to expect it to go in the future.
The two discuss how higher interest rates don't necessarily mean your investments can't make sense. Higher rates also mean more write offs on your taxes, plus your tenant is still paying your debts. So you might have lower cash flow, but it can still be a great investment that gets better over time with your locked in rate.
