Sometimes it’s simply a small notion that someone at work mentioned. A coworker just bought a first home and they just keep talking about it. Or maybe you start noticing For Sale signs around that were there, but you never noticed
them. Perhaps your real estate agent friend keeps telling you it’s time to buy and stop renting. Whatever the motive, buying a first home is a pretty big step.
If the answer is a resounding yes, you’re ready to list. If the answer is no, you’ll need to understand why it is a no and create a strategic plan of attack to create a yes. Realtors are often called upon to outline exactly what a
seller may need to do to get their house ready to sell at top dollar. Do you know what to do to get your own house ready to list?
Buying a home is a big decision that will impact your life for years to come. Choosing the right house in the right location and the right price point can help you live your best life. But how do you know how much you can afford? There
are many hidden costs involved in homeownership that must be taken into account to ensure you’re not overextending your budget.
Many starter-home purchases are driven primarily by price, which is understandable. But, there are so many other considerations involved in finding the right place, like square footage and location, to name just a few of the most consequential.
Freddie Mac's results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® shows that "The drop in mortgage rates continues to stimulate the real estate market and the economy. Home
purchase demand is up five percent from a year ago and has noticeably strengthened since the early summer months, while refinances surged to their highest share in three and a half years. Households that refinanced in the second quarter
of 2019 will save an average of $1,700 a year, which is equivalent to about $140 each month. The benefit of lower mortgage rates is not only shoring up home sales, but also providing support to homeowner balance sheets via higher monthly
cash flow and steadily rising home equity."
