4 Reasons to Buy Before Winter!

It’s that time of year! The seasons are changing and many are thinking about making a move. Those on the fence about whether now is the right time to buy don’t have to look far to  find four great reasons* to consider buying a home now, rather than waiting.

1. Prices Will Continue to Rise
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
Rates are projected to be up almost a full percentage point by the end of next year. 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

4. It’s Time to Move On with Your Life
Not everything is about money. Look at the actual reason you are buying and decide whether it is worth waiting. Are you looking for a lifestyle change?  Better schools?  More control over your space?

Bottom Line
If you are considering a move for whatever reason, buying sooner rather than later could lead to substantial savings.

The Importance of Pricing Strategy

Crazy sellers market right?
Tempted to price just a smidge higher?
Let’s talk about the importance of strategic pricing…

In this sellers market, many sellers are wanting to see just how high they can push their list price. The conversation goes something like this, “because my neighbors put their house on the market for $400,000 and received $50,000 over asking, I want to list my house for $450,000”. It is extremely tempting to push the market; that is, price your home at the tippy top of what you think is possible in this market. This graph below from the National Association of Realtors shows the percentage of buyers who will look at your house if it is priced at market, below market and above market.

PricingBuyers still want to see prices reflect market value and then decide if they are willing to pay more to compete. When it is obvious the house is overpriced or pushing the envelope, they pass it up and will likely go pay just as much for another house around the corner that used a smarter pricing strategy. Pricing, as always, is paramount. Metropolist agents are skilled and educated to help you price your home to get the most money – and perhaps even more importantly the best contract terms – in this market. If you have been thinking of selling, or know someone who is, give us a call!
