Mortgage Rates are going up. As a result, there are many, many, many ramifications with a housing market that is already struggling with tight inventory and rising building costs.

We love answering questions from our home-owing listeners. Al from Elk Grove wants to replace his rural, circular driveway with concrete or brick pavers, but with one??
