Buyers, Hang In There! Here’s Why:

Inventory is still low and prices are holding steady. In short, we are still in a seller’s market.  But for those looking to buy, there is some good news:  Home Ownership grows your net worth, mortgage rates have ticked down, and home prices are forecasted to increase in the coming years.  These benefits outweigh many of the challenges of today’s market. Let’s break it down:

Long-Term Home Ownership Benefits Outweigh Short Term Challenges:

*Owning a home grows your net worth over time, and getting started as soon as possible is the best approach *Unlike renting, your monthly housing payment goes towards your equity, which adds up quickly *As Freddy Mac puts it, “Home ownership not only builds a sense of price and accomplishment, but it’s also an important step toward achieving long-term financial stability.”

Mortgage Rates Are Constantly Changing:

*Lower rates improve your purchase power and although rates have been hovering around 6.5%, rates are constantly changing and have come down over the last few weeks *Hannah Jones, Economic Data Analyst at, explains: “As we move into the spring buying season, mortgage rates have ticked lower, a welcomed sign of progress towards affordability.”

Home Prices Will Increase

*According to the Home Price Expectation Survey, which polls over 100 real estate experts, home values will go up steadily over the next few years after a slight decline this year (see graph above)
