Housing trends this summer

If you had been preparing to buy a home this summer, you may be relieved to know that you have not missed the boat on low mortgage rates.

It may still be hard to find the home of your dreams with the limited inventory for sale. But at least when it comes to getting a mortgage, you might have more options as lenders loosen some of their standards.

Here are some of the housing trends you should expect to see this summer.
