4 Reasons to Buy A Home This Summer (and why you might want to wait)

Photo credit: Keeping Current Matters

Summer is here! The temperature isn’t the only thing heating up right now, so too is the housing market! Our friends at Keeping Current Matters have given us four great reasons to consider buying a home today instead of waiting. (See below). And we would also add that there are some reasons why you might want to wait. There’s no “one-size fits all” answer.

For example, if you are in a job where it’s likely you’ll get transferred in a year or two, and you will not be in the position to hold onto the home and rent it out, you may want to wait on buying. or perhaps you are in grad school and when you graduate next year, you’ll be moving to a different part of the country.

The best thing you can do is schedule a consultation with our Lead Buyer Specialist, as well as to speak directly to a lender. (You can schedule a consult online or call Tom Reilly at (703) 629-1263.) Our market in Northern VA is beginning to shift. There are even some areas that have moved back into being a Buyer’s Market. (For example, Great Falls.) So if you’re thinking of buying, it behooves you to consult with someone who writes LOTS of contracts and has his ear tuned in to the subtle changes happening.

The consultation will include what we call “7 Steps to YOUR Dream Home” and includes things like:

  • Lifestyle interview
  • Real estate market overview
  • Review of the homebuying process
  • Needs analysis
  • Wish list
  • Why you need an advocate
  • Tips & tricks for searching

****************************************

Here are Four Reasons to Buy NOW:

1. Prices Will Continue to Rise

The Home Price Expectation Survey polls a distinguished panel of over 100 economists, investment strategists, and housing market analysts. Their most recent report projects appreciation in home values over the next five years to be between 11.8% (most pessimistic) and 26.7% (most optimistic).

The bottom in home prices has come and gone. Home values will continue to appreciate for years. Waiting no longer makes sense.

2. Mortgage Interest Rates Are Projected to Increase

Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey shows that interest rates for a 30-year mortgage have started to inch up, most experts predict that they will begin to rise even more over the next 12 months. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac & the National Association of Realtors are in unison projecting that rates will be up approximately three quarters of a percentage point over the next 12 months.

An increase in rates will impact YOUR monthly mortgage payment. Your housing expense will be more a year from now if a mortgage is necessary to purchase your next home.

3. Either Way You are Paying a Mortgage

As a recent paper from the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University explains:

“Households must consume housing whether they own or rent. Not even accounting for more favorable tax treatment of owning, homeowners pay debt service to pay down their own principal while households that rent pay down the principal of a landlord plus a rate of return. That’s yet another reason owning often does—as Americans intuit—end up making more financial sense than renting.”

4. It’s Time to Move On with Your Life

The ‘cost’ of a home is determined by two major components: the price of the home and the current mortgage rate. It appears that both are on the rise.

But, what if they weren’t? Would you wait?

Look at the actual reason you are buying and decide whether it is worth waiting. Whether you want to have a great place for your children to grow up, you want your family to be safer or you just want to have control over renovations, maybe it is time to buy.

BOTTOM LINE

If the right thing for you and your family is to purchase a home this year, buying sooner rather than later could lead to substantial savings.

Selling Your Home in 2016? Easy Tip to Do NOW!

If you’re thinking of selling your Northern VA home in 2016, it’s never too early to prepare. Here’s an easy tip to get you started!

Great Falls Real Estate

School is almost out and your pool is getting ready to swing into high gear. This is the PERFECT time to snap some photos of your yard when it looks its best. Whether or not you have a pool, June is a fabulous time when trees are full, lawns are green and flowers are in bloom. So if you’re thinking of selling in the January to April 2016 timeframe, now is a great time for a photo shoot.

The same thing applies to Fall and Winter. Get some shots of the autumn leaves and some lovely snow landscapes. Then when you put your home on the market this winter or early next year – when things are dead and brown – you’ll still be able to showcase your home at its best!

(If you’re really organized, you can do what some of our past sellers have done and sign your listing now so we can have our professional photographer come out and shoot photos for you!)

Give Terry Belt or Kevin Kleifges a call at (703) 242-3975 to schedule a pre-listing walkthrough. Summertime is a great time to start thinking about the updates and repairs you might need to make in preparation for next year. And you’ll want to talk to them first to ensure you don’t waste time or money on things that really aren’t necessary.
