Good Time to Buy

The share of Americans who say it is a good time to buy a home increased 4 percentage points to 15 percent in January compared with December, according to a monthly survey from Fannie Mae. The share is still down sizably from the start of 2018, when housing demand was soaring and home prices were rising at a much faster clip.

Home price gains have been shrinking since last summer and are now rising at the slowest pace in more than six years, according to CoreLogic. Consequently, the share of Americans who say home prices will go up fell 1 percentage point to 30 percent. That share has been declining for four straight months and is down a whopping 22 percentage points from a year ago, according to Fannie Mae. [read article from CNBC.com ]

The Time is Now – Milton Run Offers Move-in Ready Homes in Sought After North Fulton

Many homebuyers choose spring to buy a new home and move in to be ready for the summer months.  Why not get a jump on spring home buying and choose your home now for a spring move-in date?

The Time to Buy is Now

According to this recent article in TheStreet.com, February is a good time to buy a new home. Knowing the right time to buy house is just as important in the home buying process as knowing what house you’re going to buy, where you’re going to buy it, and how you’re going to buy that home. Why is the “when factor” so important?

As with most financial endeavors, timing can be everything, and that goes double for landing a dream home. Pricing, interest rate levels, the calendar month of the year, and your own personal cash situation all can factor in on when to buy. There are multiple factors that go into the “when to buy a home discussion.”

In the past few years, the Federal Reserve has sustained a policy of raising interest rates to keep inflation low, and the economy stable. In early 2019, 30-year fixed mortgage interest rates rose to between 4.5% and 5.0%, depending on the lending institution.  If you watch the interest rates daily and lock in your rate while they are low, it can make a huge difference in your monthly payment.

If you are on the fence about purchasing a new home or moving up from another home, consider this article from KeepingMattersCurrent.com

“The rising of home prices over time, is how the majority of wealth is built in real estate. This is the ‘home run’ you hear of when people make a large windfall of money. While prices fluctuate, over the long run real estate values have always gone up, always, and there is no reason to think that is going to change.

One thing to consider when it comes to real estate appreciation affecting your ROI is the fact that appreciation combined with leverage offers huge returns. If you buy a property for $200,000 and it appreciates to $220,000, your property had made you a 10% return. However, you likely didn’t pay cash for the property and instead used the bank’s money. If you consider that you may have put 10% down ($20,000), you actually have doubled your investment, a 100% return.”
