Today, I want to talk to some of those buyers that are on the fence right now.
If you're on the fence about buying right now, you really shouldn't be. There is a ton of inventory in our market right now, especially for first-time home buyers. There are a lot of bank-owned properties and we're being flooded with HUD properties, which are priced perfectly for new buyers.
The best news of all is that interest rates are just incredible. I have some clients getting rates as low as 3.75% fixed with no points, and other clients getting 4-4.25% fixed without points depending on their credit, income, and job history. Long story short, rates are fantastic and you have a lot of options. FHA, CHFA, and VA loans are only a few examples of the many opportunities you have to lock in a low rate.
If you are thinking about buying but haven't yet spoken to a lending partner and gotten pre-approved, I urge you to do so as soon as possible. Our lending partners have some of the best programs in the state and some of the best rates around!
If you haven't yet gone out into the marketplace to take a look at some homes to see what you can afford for your money, don't hesitate to give me a call. I would love to sit down with you and pair you up with an expert agent and advisor who could take you out to the marketplace to find your dream home.
Ultimately, you're the only one who knows what you want; it's not our job to tell you what is right for you. However, it is our job to ensure the process goes as smooth as possible and that you get the best possible deal.
