On the Level or On the Fence?

On the Level or On the Fence? seesaw

With the good weather and low interest rates right now it is a wise buyer who goes out to look for a home.  Want that big house?  When prices and interest rates go up - that house will be just a dream. 

We are seeing lots of activity in Prince William County with our good prices, great schools and ability to go East, West, North and South with our major road systems. 

While driving to work I heard a comment on the radio that interest rates will be staying low for at least another year. Sounds good and maybe the buying community will think this means they can wait to buy. Unfortunately there is the other end of this see/saw - with inventory low the prices are sure to go up. It takes just a few comparables at a higher price to set the mark for the home you want. Why wait! Call me and let's go find that home you have always wanted!



BUYERS - Spring is here - be that early bird and get the worm  (I mean home!) or you don't want to be heard saying  "OH, NO, why didn't I buy a house sooner!"

oh no

I am seeing the no sense of urgency here in La Quinta, California too. Buyers are 'thinking' and 'waiting'. I guess they are waiting for higher prices and higher interest rates?

Lowering interest rates is no longer working and I am not sure but if they jumped up then the rest of the fence grabbers may get off the fence.

Caryl  Great blog!  Who knows what it takes to get people motivated.  I can only assume the economy is hurting enough to stop major spending.  Who knows!  Re-blogged  Enjoy your day

Prospective home buyers that do not take advantage of the current market may be missing the opportunity of a lifetime. 

Will you be attending the meet up in Lovettsville?

Now is the time to buy. Home prices depend on supply and demand, low inventory will push the price up.
