4 Reasons To Consider Buying A Home Now

Those who are on the fence about whether or not now is the right time to buy don’t have to look much further.  Here are four great reasons to consider buying a home now, instead of waiting.


1. Prices Will Continue to Rise


CoreLogic’s latest Home Price Index reports that home prices have appreciated by 6% over the last 12 months. The same report predicts that prices will continue to increase at a rate of 5.4% over the next year and are projected to continue to appreciate by more than 3.5% a year for the next 5 years.


2. Mortgage Interest Rates Remain at Historic Lows


Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey shows that interest rates for a 30-year mortgage have remained at or below 3.5% for 13 consecutive weeks. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Freddie Mac & the National Association of Realtors are projecting that rates will increase by this time next year.


Any increase in rates will impact YOUR monthly mortgage payment. A year from now, the percentage of your income that you spend on housing will increase substantially if you choose to wait.


3. Either Way You Are Paying a Mortgage


Everyone should realize that, unless you are living with your parents rent-free, you are paying a mortgage - either your mortgage or your landlord’s.


4. It’s Time to Move on with Your Life


The ‘cost’ of a home is determined by two major components: the price of the home and the current mortgage rate. It appears that both are on the rise.  But what if they weren’t? Would you wait?

Look at the actual reason you are buying and decide whether it is worth waiting. Whether you want to have a great place for your children to grow up, you want your family to be safer or you just want to have control over renovations, maybe now is the time to buy.


If the right thing for you and your family is to purchase a home this year, buying sooner rather than later could lead to substantial savings.
