It’s that time of year again. Winter and holiday decorations are going up in the stores again. While this may have you thinking about time with the family. staying warm and planning for the new year, if you are on the fence about moving you may want to get the gears in motion. Here’s 4 great reasons to let Helen get you in a new home for the holidays.
Mortgage Interest Rates are Projected to Rise
We’ve been experiences some all-time lows for mortgage rates. As the market improves, those rates will rise. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the National Association of Realtors are in unison projecting that rates will be up almost a full percentage point by the end of next year. This means that if you wait for the warmer weather to come back, you will be paying more on your mortgage than if you sold right now.
Prices Will Rise
The market is improving. That means that we will soon switch into a sellers market again. Your dream house will cost you more next year than it will right now. The Home Price Expectation Survey polls a distinguished panel of over 100 economists, investment strategists, and housing market analysts. Their most recent report released recently projects appreciation in home values over the next five years to be between 11.2% (most pessimistic) and 27.8% (most optimistic). Home values will continue to appreciate for years. Waiting no longer makes sense.
The holidays are right around the corner. If you get in a new house, think of the joy of decorating and welcoming the family. You may want to expand to have more room as your family grows, or at least a bigger kitchen. Why spend another year doing the same traditions in the same space when you can bring the traditions to a new space. We have it on the highest authority that Santa will find you after the move.
Moving on with Life
You’ve been thinking about it. You’ve been dreaming about the possibilities. So what are you waiting for? 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 it is time to buy. Your life is going to happen, but it can happen in a place you love.
