3 Reasons You Should Buy a Home This Spring

If you’ve been musing about the idea of buying a home, below are three reasons you should buy this spring:

  1. Rates are still low (for now) — Experts expect mortgage rates to rise over the course of 2017, but they’re currently still at historic lows. Locking in a low rate now can help you save big on the cost of your mortgage.
  2. Home prices are going up — Home values went up 6.8% in 2016 and are expected to increase another 3.5% in 2017, according to Zillow. It’s uncertain when home values will fall again, so it’s best to buy now before they climb even higher.
  3. Inventory is dwindling — The number of houses on the market is shrinking and will continue to. Buying now can help you beat the competition before it gets fierce.

Not Sure You’re Ready? 
Even if you’re still saving for a down payment, we should review your financial situation to see if there’s a loan program that meets your needs. There are several loan programs that don’t require 20% down, so you may be able to qualify for a mortgage sooner than you think.

If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to buy a home, now is the time. Call Dave Couk @ 540-219-9189
