Interest rates are going to VARY. Long term guess - they will rise. Why? Because they have been at historic low levels for almost a year. As the economy imporves, there will be more demand for loans and more places to invest that give a good return. That generally causes rates to rise. You don't want to see a scenario where rates drop. It means the economy is back in a dive.

The effect of a 1/2% increase in rate is just about the same as a 6% price increase in the home.
in either, case, the payment increases by about $30 per 100K.
