Why 2016 Is The Year To Buy A Home

Managing Real Estate Broker with Regal | Christie's International Real Estate BK659279 

If you've been on the fence about buying a home,

this may be the year to take the plunge...


Mortgage rates have been bouncing around record lows, but even though they're starting to go up, you haven't missed your chance.  

If you've been on the fence about buying a home, 2016 is the year to take the plunge according to CNN Money and Kathryn Vasel in her December 4, 2015 article on CNNMoney.com titled   "4 Reasons 2016 is the year to buy a home" 


1.  Home prices will finally calm down

Prices will continue to rise, but are expected to rise at a slower pace, giving buyers an

opportunity to jump in.  


2.  More Homes are expected to hit the market

More owners are expected to list their homes, and the new home market is also expected to grow in the coming year which will boost inventory levels.


3.  Dirt Cheap Mortgages Could Disappear

The Fed is expencted to begin increasing interest rates which means the window for record low mortgage rates is closing in.  


4.  Rents will still Rise

Rent prices are expected to continue to climb in  2016, which means buying a home will be cheaper than renting.

Hi Joyce, those are some great points on "why to buy in 2016", especially because the interest rates are still sooo good despite the fact they creeped up just a wee bit.

Joyce these are all good point, what I am always afraid in my market that the prices will continue to climb and it will shrink the buying power and the first time buyers will have to settle for less than what they could have bought last year and the year before....Endre
