Even though no one at KCM actively lists or sells real estate, some of our readers believe that there is an inherent bias toward the real estate community in our writing. For that reason, we want to quote a third party source today. Forbes, in their online edition last week, spoke to the importance of buying a home now rather than waiting.
The article, Should You Buy a Home Now or Pay More Later?, explains:
“With mortgage rates creeping up toward 5% as 2013 draws to a close, potential home buyers have some decisions to make — and soon.
The danger for potential homebuyers isn’t that mortgage rates are nearing 5.00%; the real threat is that rates could go higher, to 5.50% or even 6.00% in 2014.”
The article spells out the financials consequences a buyer would face by waiting. ($67,746 on a $300,000 mortgage).
They went on to identify four things a buyer should take into consideration before delaying a decision to purchase.
- Rates will likely rise — and soon with 5% interest rates right around the corner.
- The Federal Reserve will start “tapering” causing rates to return to historically normal levels (6-7%).
- Home values are rising
- The autumn buying season is underrated “as you can take advantage of year-end tax breaks and the fall weather makes it an ideal time to move”.
We believe work and play should be just a few steps away. The suburban commute is a foreign concept when you can walk to the office, enjoy happy hour at your favorite watering hole, dine at a five-star restaurant and stroll home to your ultra-modern downtown loft apartment!
