If you’re thinking of buying a house, now is the time to buy!

If you’ve been thinking about buying a house, you’re not alone! You may have been putting it off for a number of reasons – however, there are a lot of reasons that make “right now” the best time in years to buy a house.

Shopping for a house from the comfort of your home!

First of all, both home sales, home values are going up in 2016! This makes a lot of sense. Generally speaking people are interested in buying things that appreciate. What this potentially means for you is; the sooner you buy a house, at what will more than likely be a more reasonable price, the more value you will reap from it as home prices rise.

Secondly, interest rates are still LOW – below 4%.  Whether you’re considering buying a house or you already own a house and are thinking of purchasing another (say for an income property or summer house?) or you just want to refinance your existing mortgage (providing it’s above 4%) NOW is the time to do it!

Third, consumer confidence is high! The job rate is really beginning to pick up and shows no signs of slowing down in 2016. The cost of heating and cooling a home are very low right now as well. The plummeting cost of fuel has made one of the larger homeowner bills a lot smaller. The economy is moving in the right direction.

Finally, it’s never been easier. You can shop for a house and take a tour of the neighborhood on a mobile device. Now it’s even possible to get a mortgage from your smart phone. You can practically buy a house without ever leaving your current home!
