Which costs more over the course of a 30-year loan, a $240K home in 1980 or a $480K home in 2011?According to the folks at ZipRealty, because interest rates were a heinous 20% in 1980, your monthly payments on the 1980 house would be around $1000 bucks more than they are on the 2011 house. "Indeed, today’s interest rates are tantalizing to homebuyers. But how to get the bank to loan you the money?" [ZipCode]
