Don’t wait, or it might be too late!
Have you ever had the thought; “I think I’ll wait until next year to purchase a home”? If you’ve thought of buying a home, but don’t want to deal with the process now, you’re not alone! It’s a pretty common tendency to hold off things on our to-do list, especially the ones that cost tons of money.
But would you really hold off the task if I told you that waiting could make a difference of tens of thousands of dollars? Yes – it could cost you a $10,000-$50,000 (or more) difference to get the home you want today, in 2019’s market. Maybe you should take a look at some home buying myths that are keeping you from looking in the first place.
It’s anticipated, by the national historical trend report, that homes are on the rise by over 5% each year. Yikes! That house you’ve been eyeing online, listed for $225,000, could be listed next year for $236,250. That is over $10,000 more just for waiting till 2019. This isn’t even bringing into question the rising APR rates for mortgages, that can increase your monthly payment amount on a home pretty significantly.
Of course, the home buying process can seem pretty intimidating. But with an experienced and trusted agent on your side, it can actually go very smoothly (I promise!). In the long run, it could even save you money and you can stop throwing away money by renting.
