Should I Wait to Buy a Home?

Should I Wait to Buy a Home?   

This has been our most asked question of 2017….


buy a home


If you’ve been toying with the idea of buying a home, or you anticipate a life change that might force you to move—such as a new baby or a job transfer—you should be “buying as urgently and as soon as possible,” says Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for®.  
  • Home prices now stand higher than before the 2007 crash, increasing 5% from 2015 to 2016.  Housing experts expect an additional 2% to 3% jump in 2017.   The bottom in home prices has come and gone. Home values will continue to appreciate for years. Waiting to buy a home no longer makes sense.

Indicators also point to rising interest rates ahead:

  • Money is still cheap (4% interest rates for many loan programs).  An increase in rates will impact YOUR monthly mortgage payment. A year from now, your housing expense will increase if a mortgage is necessary to buy your next home. Everyone’s financial situation is different, but if you can afford to buy a home, there’s little reason not to.
  • Inventory shrinking continues to be a trend of steady decline since just before the housing crash, when inventory peaked, so if you’re planning on buying a home, get off of the fence.
