And if we do how much housing prices would need to come down?
I would think around 40%.

Fishing? Why don't you just find the reports from the mortgage guys complaining about the "huge" run up in interest rates?

I don't see 10% anywhere in the near or distant future. 6-7%? Yes, probably. Not 10%.

they've gone up considerably just in these 6 months in 2013, but i think its gonna level out soon and maybe hit 5% and stay there for a while. in my opinion, those that wanted to take advantage of these low rates have done so and there arent as many out there left to compensate for a continued increase up to 10%. maybe 6-7% at the most.

reasoning: after going through the mortgage process, it's still very tough to get a mortgage. im barely getting by even though i thought i was in good standing. there are lots of people like me, college graduates with student loans who can't get a mortgage because their debts are too high. luckily mine isnt too bad but many 22-30 yr olds will have a higher debt to income ratio because of these loans and banks may need to look at things different 3-4 years down the road to accommodate this age group that will want a home.

all of course my opinion on one of the factors interest rates wont continue to climb much.

Rates have been at record lows and sit around 4%. The last time mortgage rates were 10% was 1990. 23 years ago!

What makes you think housing prices would need to come down? We've had high mortgage rates before, and housing prices didn't really come down at all.

Usually there's a correlation between rates and prices. There has been a very good adjusted chart reflecting that. If I could find it I'll post it. But 40% is insane. Maybe a little pull back accordingly.

Good luck finding that. I've bought a number of homes since 1978,even when mortgage rates were as high as 17%. Very little if any movement in prices as a result of high rates. Here's a link for you:

I'm looking forward to 10%+ interest rates, maybe 20%+.
When that happens real estate prices will collapse. That is a time to buy.
Why would you buy a house when interest rates are extremely low?
That means housing prices are inflated and homes are overpriced.
