Why is it assumed that rising interest rates devalue ones home?

Because most buyers, wisely, buy as much as they can afford.

I didn't. I bought my house in the Piedmont 26 years ago, after it had been on the market for 18 months and the owners then desperate to sell it. I payed almost $50k less than they had been asking. Sold it two months ago with the market at its peak.

My current home I built in 2005 when the market in this resort area was down. Two years later my house was worth twice what I had in it- condos up the street being bought for stupid money. Then the 2008 crash and most of them were underwater.

Funny....Out of the last 3 houses I purchased, two were purchased at the bottom of the market....the Bay Area house in the slump of '97, and the big house in Fresno in the depression of 2011.
I got the house in Fresno because the people who bought it in '06 on a Jumbo loan with an adjustable mtg. defaulted.
I paid less than 50% their price for the home. And it has tripled in value in ten years.

I have always bought property when the 'window of opportunity' opened and I was in the market and had the means. It's never not worked out.
I almost bought 3 more rentals in 2011 because it was easy money but let it pass because I didn't need the $$$ or headaches going into my 50's.

Egah is a baller and has no real worries anyway.

I believe I get your point.

But I’d add, many (most?) buy more than they can afford. I have consulted many that just because you can qualify for a mortgage doesn’t necessarily mean that you can “afford” the home.

A lot of that depends on three factors:
1. Job security;
2. Ability to DIY maintenance and repairs;
3. Management of entertainment budget.

you make dumb assumptions. true, I bought near the top of the market. I had another home which I sold at the top of the market, so gains moved across laterally. homes go up, they go down, at the end of a day, its the cost difference which matters. only first time buyers are in tough shape buying at the top.
next up, I took the cash out and stuck it in an online savings account currently earning 2%, so my net cost of borrowing (not factoring tax ramifications or other) is .75%. that will go lower as rates go up. where the fk can you borrow money at .75%

on house two, its current value is mid 2 millions. if I chose to do so it would rent for >125,000 per summer season. the carrying cost is a mere 4200 per month.

none of this factors my ability to earn, my savings, or demand in the areas I own which could give me a fairly easy exit.

just because you and el douche bag think its a bad idea doesnt make it so.

Maybe you should try pulling your head out of your ass for once and understand how things work for a change instead of parroting the realturd drivel 'now is a great time to buy'.

The value of a home is irrelevant until decided to buy/sell. Regardless, let's discuss.

My beach home was purchased during the last downturn when no one was buying. I got it a discount for 1.1 million. Its now valued well over 2 million, approaching 3. EVEN if there is a pull back, with a mortgage of 500k, how exactly am I screwed?

My primary was purchased using funds from my previous home. I also bought it slightly under current market (about 60k under). Even if it were to pull back to 2014 pricing, it would still trade at something like 750-850k. Any losses I would incur, would be paper losses from the paper gains on the previous home. In short, it would wash out, meaning technically, I would have sold the previous home at a lower price as well.

In either case, I am well ahead, as I have places to live, accrued value, and on the other side a million bucks on the sidelines from previous sale, earning 2% interest, defrayign the carrying cost of the current mortgages.

please, tell me how I am screwed......

Unless your local government levies taxes on your real property - then the value is extremely revelant.

I'm doing OK here in a fiscally responsible county and village. My tax valuation only increased slightly. Meanwhile the market values have gone through the roof.

All HELOCs are variable rates, as the usage of the line is usually for ten years--it is impossible to charge a fixed rate under 10.000% to hedge against future draws on the line.

The interest rate they are marketing probably includes an initial teaser rate, at Prime Rate, or even below Prime, for the first year or two, and after that period the index will remain Prime, but the margin, the amount added to Prime to get the actual rate, will increase.

I see these daily, if you want a HELOC, a good rate would be Prime and no higher than Prime plus 1.00%.

Today, Prime is 6.250%, BUT remember, every HELOC I have seen in 30+ years has no annual rate increase limitations, it can go up 5.00% in a given year, AND most HELOCs are capped at 18.000% rate, seen very few lower than that.

I have never paid more than (Prime - 1) on a heloc, which usually puts me at 1-2%, and I have always paid if off in less than 12 months. Just shocks me the rate these interest rates are growing.

Guessing it is time to shift money around again to take advantage of these interest rates.

Try living in Illinois sometime. The formula they use to calculate your property taxes is so clever your taxes can go up even though the value of your house went down.
