Real Estate Market: It’s Time to Buy a Home

Still on the fence about what to do? We believe very strongly that now is the time to buy a home. Some will say we are just saying this to create real estate transactions and commissions. Because of that, today we will quote what those outside the real estate profession are saying to the people who look to them for financial advice.

The Wall Street Journal

Last week, in an article entitled It’s Time to Buy That House, the WSJ told their subscribers:
“It’s an excellent time to buy a house, either to live in for the long term or for investment income…Houses aren’t the magic wealth creators they were made out to be during the bubble. But when prices are low, loans are cheap and plump investment yields are scarce, buyers should jump.”
In an article two weeks ago, MarketWatch.com (the on-line blog for WSJ) told their readers:
“Now could be the best time in history to buy a home.”

Forbes.com

In a report to their subscribers, Capital Economics reported that:
“The previous declines in house prices and the more recent drop in mortgage rates to record lows have created an unusual situation in which the median monthly mortgage payment is more or less the same as the median rental payment.”
Why is this important? Last week, Forbes explained to their readers:
“If rents simply kept up with inflation at a 3.2% annual increase, a $1,500 rent payment would cost that renter nearly $900,000 over the next 30 years. The same $1,500 payment made to their mortgage would be only $540,000 (because the payments don’t increase with inflation).”
They went on to explain the advantages of homeownership during retirement:
“Even with a dismal 1% growth rate over 30 years, a $300,000 property would appreciate well over $100,000 giving the homeowner an additional nest egg for retirement… At a time when retirement is becoming much more challenging, an extra $400,000 (or likely more) can make a major difference not to mention the impact of NOT having to pay a mortgage.  How much less would you have to save for retirement if you didn’t pay the mortgage?

Bottom Line

When the iconic financial newspaper and the iconic financial magazine say that it now makes financial sense to purchase a house, perhaps it’s time to buy a home.   Contact The Lee Ann Miller Team today and let us find your dream home!   SOURCE: KMC Blog

Real Estate Market: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

“It depends!” Should you buy, sell or sit tight? We get asked this question all the time, so we want to take this chance to explain why we give that answer.  First, it is important to know the residential real estate market has now outperformed the same period in 2010.  This is an important note since the market was supported by the federal tax credit during the first part of 2010, which had a significant impact on sales at that time.  Considering 2011 has not had this stimulus, we are very pleased that we are ahead of 2010 and we predict we will see an annual increase in activity of near 10% as compared with 2010.  Pretty impressive indeed. Now, should you buy?  If you have job security, a good credit score and income needed to support the next home, the opportunity to buy has never been better.  Low interest rates, plentiful inventory and low prices have created the trifecta for buying. Buyers moving up in price point are in the most advantageous position because they realize the highest benefit financially. Should you sell?  If your housing needs include a move-up to a higher price point, now is the perfect time to sell – prices are lower.  Does this make sense?  Yes!  For example, if your current home is down 10% in value and has dropped from $200,000 to $180,000, you “lost” $20,000.  However, if you are moving up to a $350,000 house and it also dropped the same 10% in value, it was once worth $390,000.  That seller lost (or you have gained) $40,000.  If your housing needs indicate a move-down in price point, you may want to wait – assuming you are financially able to do so. Should you sit tight?  If your job security is questionable, if your credit is flawed or if your income is stretched, you may want to postpone a buying or selling decision.  If your equity has been minimized by any adjustments to values in your local neighborhood, you might want to sit tight.  As mentioned above, if you are down-sizing, you may also want to sit tight unless you really need to decrease your monthly expenses. See, every situation is different.  As your trusted advisor, it is our duty to talk to you about your specific needs.  Call us, e-mail us – We’d love the chance to talk to you or your friends about the many questions we face about this wonderful world of real estate!
