Real Estate agents are always using interest as a reason to buy now. Give me a break, people have been saying rates will go up for two years. Do you really think the Fed can raise rates right now?

Feel fee to contact me and I can get you a list of builders/model homes to check out if this is the route you decide to take.
I think we may have a tad bit of a surge in the real estate market but since there are so dang many buyers around, I say, BUY!
But, make sure its a home that has some upside to it.
What I mean is buy a home that has maybe some overgrowth weeds or needs some minor work so that with minimal effort and cash, you have a true gem. If you buy in a community with a good school district, this will help with your value stabilizing even if we retract 3-6% over the winter.
Don't sweat it!
Next year, with the economy recovering across the board, I say buying and selling will be even more active!
So, yes, BUY!
But don't buy to worry.
Buy to enjoy homeownership and because it fits your budget!
that will be suitable to your needs. firstname.lastname@example.org
