Fourth Quarter Interest Rate Hikes
In a previous post we told you all about the upcoming interest rate hikes and how that can affect your monthly mortgage. A hike as little as .25% can make a significant change in your monthly payments so do yourself a favor and buy NOW before these changes take place.
Mid-Year Housing Report is Extremely Promising
According to Realtor.com, 2015 is doing better than years past closely equating the boom in 2006. Translation: Buy Now. An increase in the job market and a promising economy mean that people now have the funds to afford a new home and the waiting is over. The increase in demand for housing is one of the forces driving this boom and it isn’t likely to stop anytime soon. Realtor.com is seeing very high traffic on their site and this is also a promising indicator. Did you know that in only 20% of counties in the nation renting is a better option than buying? Renting just doesn’t make sense anymore. It is time to buy.
