Move-in Ready Homes at Milton Run – North Fulton

horses in field

The housing market is very active for early in the year. Additionally, mortgage rates are now at a three-month low and much lower than last year’s mortgage rates.

Above all, the housing market is booming as a result of these significantly low rates. This article in Builderonline.com discusses the findings by Freddie Mac. “Freddie Mac today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey, showing that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.60%.

“Rates fell to the lowest level in three months and are about a quarter-point above all-time lows,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “The very low rate environment has clearly had an impact on the housing market as both new construction and home resales have surged in response to the decline in rates, the rebound in the economy, and improving financial market sentiment.”

As can be seen by all, now is the perfect time to buy a new home! Equally important, Milton Run, in a sought-after part of North Fulton, offers easy access to several golf courses. Golf courses include Atlanta National Golf Club, Trophy Club of Atlanta, Crooked Creek Golf Club, St. Marlo Country Club, and many others. It is also near North Point Mall, The Collection at Forsyth and Avalon for great shopping, eateries, and events.

Affordability of  Real Estate

Consider this article from Keepingcurrentmatters.com :

There’s a current narrative that owning a home today is less affordable than it has been in the past. The reason some are making this claim is because house prices have substantially increased over the last several years.

It’s not, however, just the price of a home that matters.

Homes, in most cases, are purchased with a mortgage. The current mortgage rate is a major component of the affordability equation. Mortgage rates have fallen by over a full percentage point since December 2018. Another major piece of the affordability equation is a buyer’s income. The median family income has risen by approximately 3% over the last year.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) releases a monthly Housing Affordability Index. The latest index shows that home affordability is better today than at almost any point over the last 30 years. The index determines how affordable homes are based on the following:

“A Home Affordability Index value of 100 means that a family with the median income has exactly enough income to qualify for a mortgage on a median-priced home. An index of 120 signifies that a family earning the median income has 20 percent more than the level of income needed pay the mortgage on a median-priced home, assuming a 20 percent down payment so that the monthly payment and interest will not exceed 25 percent of this level of income (qualifying income).”

The Horizon at Laurel Canyon has homes available now.

Available Homes:

Homesite 77 |$549,795 |3 BR, 2 full & 1 half BA – Cambridge D Ranch on basement backing up to 18th Fairway! 3 bedroom/2.5 bath on a basement.

For many years, the real estate market would slow down over the winter months but not now!  According to this article in KeepingCurrentMatters.com :

“If you’re following what’s happening in the housing market right now, you know that many people believe the winter months aren’t a good time to sell a home. As realtor.com Senior Economist George Ratiu recently noted,

“Sellers tend to be more reluctant to list during the colder time of year when the market typically makes a seasonal slowdown.”

However, a recent report by ShowingTime reveals how this year is different. Buyer activity is way up compared to the same time last year. The report explains,

“The nation’s 12.6% growth in home showings compared to 2018 was the most significant jump in buyer traffic during the current four-month streak of year-over-year increases. The West Region saw the greatest growth in activity, with a 23.1% jump – the region’s greatest in the history of the Showing Index.”

The increase has spread across all four regions of the country, as the graph below shows:
