Summer is the time when people move. Typically there is more inventory during the summer months.
Start looking now so you have choices, and knowledge when the time is right for you.
Make sure you are prepared to make an offer if you fall in love with a home. Having your loan approval letter ready, and a Realtor working on your behalf will work to your benefit.

The general thought is that summer is the best time to look for a home. Kids are out of school, weather is favorable and before Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. I do not agree. Example: in the beginning of 2013 mortgage interest rates were below 04% today mortgage interest rates are above .04%. I suggest in Southern California anytime is a good time to purchase a home.
- When will that dream home come on the market? It could be within 12 months not determined by season.
- How much housing inventory is on the market?
- What are the current mortgage interest rates? Not determined by seasons.
Anytime is a good time but if you have determined now is the time to purchase be prepared. Contact a direct lender and obtain a pre-approval. That is a major starting point. You can determine your purchasing power. Then you can pen-point the areas you qualify for. CONTACT professional realtor have them give daily updates of current properties on the market in your price range. If I can be of assistance please contact me.
