Interest rates are low, inventory is high, and Dover NH Homes prices are low. This explains why more homes have sold this year and why they are selling faster. It is obvious there has never been a better time for First Time Buyers to get into Dover NH homes and start building equity for themselves instead of renting. Move up buyers are in a better position to sell their homes to First Time Home Buyers. Existing home owners wishing to up size or up grade to a new home will have to be willing to sell for a little less than they would hope for. If home prices are down 11% overall, those move up buyers will save more money on the up graded home than they will be giving up on the sale of their home to the first timers.
The Down Side Of Interest rates?
Interest rates are at all time lows and if the interest rate bumps up only 1/4 of 1 percent, purchase power goes down by about $8,000. If you are a First Time Buyer, you should be looking to buy a home now! If you would like to move up to a bigger or better home, now is the time for that too.
