While Wall Street waited today for The Federal Reserve to make a move–or as it turned out to not make a move–on interest rates, the real estate industry also took note. The Fed’s Open Market Committee decided today to keep its target for the federal funds rate at 1 percent.

John Kary, a Realtor for RE/MAX 440 in Skippack, Pa., said he typically tracks the Fed to stay in tune with the market.

“Traditionally, I have always been attentive to the Fed’s moves since it affects my opinion as to how to market a home,” Kary said.
