Monday, June 2, 2014 — Based on Denver Real Estate prices, Denver area mortgage rates and soaring rents in and around the Denver Area, there may have never been a better time in real estate history to purchase a home than right now. No kidding, This is true. You can save money buy buying and even live for free in the home of your choice. Contact me to see how. ***
Here are five major reasons purchasers should consider buying now and not later.
1. Competition is about to Increase and has increased in Colorado
Every spring a surge of prospective purchasers enter the Denver housing market. Like you, they will want the best home available in the best location at the best price. They will be competing with you for the ‘steals’ in the market. Don’t miss the opportunity to get that ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ buy available today that no longer be available as the Denver market heats up..
2. Price Increases Are on the Horizon in Denver
Nationally, home prices are projected to appreciate by 4.5% in 2014 and by over 19% from now until 2018. First home buyers will probably pay more both in price and interest rate if they wait until the spring. Even if you are a move-up buyer, it will wind-up costing you more in net dollars as the home you will buy will appreciate at approximately the same rate as the house you are in now.
3. Owning a Home Helps Create Family Wealth
Whether you rent or you own the home you are living in, you are paying a mortgage. Either you are paying your mortgage or your landlord’s. The Federal Reserve, in a recent study, revealed that the net worth of the average homeowner is 30 times greater than that of a renter.
4. Interest Rates Are Projected to Rise!
The Mortgage Bankers Association, the National Association of Realtors, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae have all projected that the 30-year mortgage interest rate will be over 5% by the spring of 2015. That is an increase of almost 3/4 of a point over current rates.
5. Buy Low, Sell High
Most would all agree that, when investing, we want to buy at the lowest price possible and hope to sell at the highest price. Housing can create family wealth as long as we follow this simple principle. Today, real estate is selling ‘low’ compared to where it will be next year. It’s time to buy!
