One reason to buy now.

By
Real Estate Agent with First Weber Hedeman Group

 A factor to consider is that FHA is tightening their guidelines.  FHA is a loan program that has become increasingly popular over the last year.  Buyers only need a 3.5% down payment and minimum 620 credit score.  The Up Front mortgage insurance that is required is currently 1.75% of the loan amount, but will be increasing to 2.25% of the loan amount on April 5th.  That’s a significant difference when looking at a mortgage! Along with the home buyers credits now is the time to make your move to home ownership.

Most lenders in Central Texas are requiring a minimum 640 FICO, but that's fine with me.  Let's learn from the past so we don't repeat it.  For most buyers those slight fee increases shouldn't affect things much, especially since many FHA buyers still use seller concessions toward closing costs.  Nonetheless, in addition these changes it seems clear that prices and interest rates have nowhere to go but up this year, and mortgage costs and regulation will almost certainly get worse before they get better.

That is a very good reason why Buyers need to make their move NOW, another is the possibility of the first time home buyers tax credit!
