Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR632450000

Have you been sitting on the fence, trying to decide and "time the market" on the best time to buy a home? Well, those that had wondered and acted getting their head out of the cloud and got "off their seat on the fence" have seen their Phoenix area homes double in price during the past 5 years. Home ownership is the American dream and a chance to build equity and see your home appreciate. May be time to get off the fence and give me a call or text at 480-242-6500 for Homes For Sale in Phoenix Metro. (Fence photo- MabeAmber from Pixabay)

Moving to Sunny Arizona

"The Valley is drawing many new residents from higher priced areas who can pay the rapidly rising prices....Many of the people moving to the Valley are coming from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York where home prices are much higher." Currently we have the demand for homes in the Phoenix metro but the supply of individuals willing to sell their homes is low. Until the supply equals the demand home prices are expected to rise as long as people can afford to buy the homes. 

Are you ready to move...think about the sunny Phoenix metro in Arizona? Yes prices are on the rise but rising mortgage rates are still closer to historic lows at 5.1% than highs. Both home prices and mortgage rates are expected to rise further in 2022.

Thanks Bill Salvatore - East Valley as other buyers that did not hesitate to buy during the past few years have realized great appreciation in their family homes, others are still on the fence as house prices rise. Mortgage rates will rise again in 2022, now is time to lock in a rate and get off the fence.

Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI I had to respond to this because of your featured picture. Those pants reminded me of the red, white, and blue elephant bell bottom jeans I wore in the 60's. Now that being said I actually did read your post and I think you did a GREAT job of presenting your case.

In my life I have been learning sitting on the fence should not be the preferred option when making a decision, especially in a rapidly changing landscape Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI

Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI Buyers sitting on the fence have already sat on it to long.  The interest rates are much higher now and continue to go higher.

Jeff we are on the same page, I remember three down turns, 1996, 2007 and this one coming up, buyers need to wake up everyone who did not buy lost out everyone who bought made money... I always tell the story of my father, he bought his house when it was 17 per cent interest rate for $40k and in the bottom of the market sold it for $120k and lived happy for decades... so this is a story for fence sitters...just sayin

Hey Bob "RealMan" Timm I guess it is possible that person on the fence may have found your pair of striped pants at the thrift store. Jeff 😎

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. the fence sitters sometimes tend to over-analyze and do miss out on opportunities. Not only has RE been a good long term investment, one gets to live there and lock in their monthly payment in a period of rising RE and also rising interest rates AND rising rental prices. Note, another FED interest hike today, mortgage rates will increase again soon. Time to lock in a mortgage rate.
