A Balanced Market Is Predicted In 2019

Image result for balanced market

Economists who focus on the housing market are anticipating a more balanced market this year, reports RISMedia . Home prices are just starting to level off, and softening a bit in our area following the frenzied seller’s market of the past few years. Unfortunately, mortgage interest rates are beginning to climb, which will affect the housing affordability factor for many would-be buyers.

First-time buyers will continue to dominate the real estate market, accounting for an estimated 45 percent of all new mortgages in the coming year, says the National Association of Realtors®. Many millennial’s have savings for their down payment in the bank and are eager to purchase their first home, but the shortage of resale properties continues to limit their buying options.

Wherever the balanced market leads us, home buyers primarily want to know how much their monthly mortgage payment will be and if they can afford it. If you’re planning to buy a home this year, what matters most is focusing on your local market and your housing needs. Typically, the majority of home buyers decide to act because of the timing in their lives, not necessarily the timing in the marketplace. I’m encouraging all of my clients who are thinking about selling, buying, or both. The market in the Portland-Metro area is already starting to see some “softening” and change in prices and market time. Call, email, or text me for more information about your home and neighborhood and how to get started.

IT’S A GOOD LIFE!!

Is it time to move?

Image result for someone thinking

Selling your home is certainly a personal decision. Here are five points to consider:

  1. You want to take advantage of the current real estate market. Housing prices are just beginning to level off in many areas, but it’s primarily still a seller’s market.
  2. Your financial situation has changed and you want to lower your mortgage payments. A job change, divorce, serious illness, or death may call for a new living arrangement.
  3. Your family has outgrown your starter home. What was once a cozy little home for two may not be the ideal situation for a family of five.
  4. You’re tired of paying for maintenance and repair bills on an older property. When the most frequent visitors to your home are the plumber, electrician and appliance repair technician, then it may be time for a newer house.
  5. You’ve spent at least five years in your current home and you’re ready to move on. If you have positive equity in your home, then you may be ready to sell.

For more information on getting ready to sell, steps to selling, costs, time it takes and how to move simultaneously from your old home to your new please call, email, or text me.

“As first time buyers, our experience with Rachel was amazing. She really took care of us from beginning to end, and her attentiveness and thoroughness helped us feel secure throughout the process. She’s a rockstar advocate to have on your side of the table. Her tenaciousness secured our house for us over five competing offers and her career’s worth of connections and willingness to make all the arrangements helped the inspection process move quickly and smoothly. We are so glad that we were referred to Rachel, and will be forever thankful for everything she did to help us get into our first home. –Megan & Scott Cutler”
