This Month in Real Estate August 2010 has been released.

As I mentioned in my July 15 post, “Mortgage Rates at Lowest Point in Five Decades,” mortgage interest rates have dropped to their lowest level in the past 50 years. On July 29th, that number was 4.54%! Freddie Mac’s current average interest rate is at a historic low of 4.6% — right at the lowest since it began recording in 1971 (but up from Thursday!).

While it is tempting to wait for a price for a home to drop, what tends to happen is that when prices drop, interest rates rise. Therefore, your payment, even if the price of the house is lower, may be the same or higher than it would be right now!
