Buying In Today's Market

Prices are rising. Inventory is low. Appraisals continue to be a problem. So again, the rules are changing. Though prices are still low and by many definations it should be considered a buyer's market, we are finding that due to the low inventory, many houses are selling at asking price or over. Buyers are enticing sellers by waiving the appraisal contingency or offering free post closing possession.

 Below are some reasons why you shouldn't put off that home purchase:

  • You don't know when the bottom has hit until it's passed
  • We don't know what will happen with interest rates. Right now interest rates are extremely low
  • Banks are changing their criteria all the time to get a mortgage. We don't know what current programs will cease to exist in the future
  • If you're a renter why continue to pay your landlord's mortgage? Every month you pay in rent is just money you're throwing out the window
  • Reap the benefits of home ownership including the tax deductions and the pride of ownership
