A lot of people have been asking me if this is a good time to buy a house- yes absolutely- the market is on it's way up and moving quickly! Remember all of the short sales and foreclosures? The people that lost their homes are now coming around again to buy- if they did everything correctly after losing their home- they are now eligible to purchase again- thus leaving a lot less properties on the market!
Elkhart Real Estate Agent Evelyn Johnston has this to say: For those who have decided not to decide about buying a home, Higher home prices are ahead...
For the last year and a half, I have been receiving multiple offers on properties that I have listed.
According to an article I read online,The Pending Home Sales Index says all indications show that house prices are indeed on the upswing. What does this mean to you? It means the urgency to buy is increasing.
Every since 2008, new home buyers have been in no real hurry to make a decision on buying a home, even when they loved it.
People are afraid that after buying, the price will drop even further, and they missed an opportunity to get an even better deal!
For those of you who have decided not to decide-higher home prices are ahead! Now is the time to buy! Will prices go back down? Maybe, maybe not, are you willing to loose a few great homes taking that chance? Interest rates are still low. Now is the time to buy!
