With all that is going on in the world, why should we consider a move now?

I know it might seem counter-intuitive, but local market indicators suggest there has never been a better time to be in the market for a move. Why buy now?  Here are my top reasons!

  1. Interest rates are unbelievably low! Fixed 30 year loans under 3%?  Yes! You can buy more and spend less!
  2. We have some very nice homes available to purchase – its been a long time since I have seen so many nice choices.
  3. Some buyers are concerned about economic uncertainty right now and sitting on the fence. However, the economic factors associated with the housing crash in 2008 are not present now, so while the economy may slow down, we are not anticipating housing prices to drop.  Take advantage of other buyers’ hesitation and buy now before you find yourself in a multi-party bidding war.
  4. Housing prices have continued to rise in our local markets despite the pandemic and economic uncertainty. If you are sitting on the sidelines, there is a good chance you will pay more at a later date!

I have outstanding opportunities across all price brackets.  Why buy now?  Check out more reasons below!
