Be Thankful You Don’t Have to Pay Mom and Dad’s Interest RateInterest rates have hovered around 4% for the majority of 2017, which has given many buyers relief from rising home prices and has helped with affordability.

The TRUTH Behind the RENT vs. BUY DebateIn a blog post published last Friday, CNBC’s Diana Olnick reported on the latest results of the FAU Buy vs. Rent Index. The index examines the entire US housing market and then isolates 23 major markets for comparison. The researchers at FAU use a “‘horse race’ comparison between an individual that is buying a home and an individual that rents a similar-quality home and reinvests all monies otherwise invested in homeownership.”
Having read both the index and the blog post, we would like to clear up any confusion that may exist. There are three major … (1 comments)

home prices: #1 Answer to the Housing Shortage: New Construction - 05/20/17 03:27 PM

#1 Answer to the Housing Shortage: New Construction The biggest challenge to today’s housing market is the shortage of housing inventory for sale.

The good news is that builders are now starting to build more homes in lower price ranges.

home prices: 3 Reasons the Housing Market is NOT in a Bubble - 05/12/17 12:50 AM

3 Reasons the Housing Market is NOT in a Bubble With housing prices appreciating at levels that far exceed historical norms, some are fearful that the market is heading for another bubble. To alleviate that fear, we just need to look back at the reasons that caused the bubble ten years ago.
Last decade, demand for housing was artificially propped up because mortgage lending standards were way too lenient. People that were not qualified to purchase were able to attain a mortgage anyway. Prices began to skyrocket. This increase in demand caused homebuilders in many markets to overbuild.
Eventually, the excess … (2 comments)

Do You Know the Cost of Waiting? Some Highlights: The “Cost of Waiting to Buy” is defined as the additional funds it would take to buy a home if prices and interest rates were to increase over a period of time.
