Run do not walk to buy rate and prices to go up

Industry Observer

If you are thinking of buying a new home, run do walk do not pass go. Prices are going up due to labor and materials are going up. The Houston area builders have put off raising prices for the last year, but the material and labor prices keep climbing so they have no choice but to raise prices. They are also planning to keep inventory low. Interest rates are on a gradual rise, so if you are thinking of buying a new home the time is now. If you are interested in buying Sitterle Home in Aliana please call me at 281-804-9265.

Buyer sitting on the fence, looking at new construction in Aliana, better jump down and make a deal.

The market will change. They have been saying it over and over for years. The Feds will make it happen.

Yes, it is time for those buyers who have been sitting on the fence, to jump off and run.

I read an article that talked about a nail manufacturing business that is having difficulty because of tariffs.  These tariffs are going to be passed on to the consumer in the form of higher costs.

Good advice for buyers, Yolanda.  Hopefully, they won't wait too long.

Yolanda, hope buyers looking to buy into your community get out quickly.  We are seeing increases either monthly or bi-monthly also.

Sure, it is a time for cash buyers. At least in our area. And mortgage... You are right, Yolanda.

People that aren't able to pull the trigger quick enough will have to pay more for a home in both ways.

Oh, this is so spot-on, Yolanda! There are more fence-sitters than I ever thought there would be in a market like this. I'm encouraging them to jump off too!

Happy Thursday!

Hi Yolanda... so how's this message working for you?  I've been pushing it for a while now, especially vis-a-vis home prices increasing... too many still don't listen and are now crying on my shoulder that they've been priced out of the market.
