Save Money and Buy Now!

Why should you buy a home now?  The cost of a home is determined by price and current mortgage rates.   And both are going up.  We’ve passed the bottom of the market and, according to NH Association of REALTORS® President,  Bill Weidacher, the market is consistently heading in a positive direction.  Here’s why waiting no longer makes sense.

Home Prices are Rising – According the Case-Shiller Home Pricing Index, nation-wide, home values have increased 10% in the last year.  Many experts are calling for the prices to continue to rise.   In NH, the median price is up 5% from last May and YTD sales are 11% ahead of last year.  A 22.3% appreciation in home values over the next 5 yrs. is projected by the Home Price Expectation Survey.

Interest Rates are RisingFreddie Mac reports that interest rates for the 30-yr. fixed rate mortgage has risen about 1/2 percentage point.  The National Association of REALTORS®, the Mortgage Bankers Association, and Fannie Mae are anticipating the interest rates to further increase by ½ percent by this time next year.

If you are considering the purchase of a home and like the idea of saving money, then buying sooner rather than later should be on your to do list!   Give me a call to work with a REALTOR® in the know and the 2013 Sunapee Region Board of REALTORS® REALTOR® of the Year.  603-526-4116, www.donnaforest.com

Is the Housing Market Improving?

We are still hearing good news about the housing market. S&P Case-Shiller home price index posted the biggest gains in 7 years. Housing prices rose in every one of the 20 cities tracked. CoreLogic (provider of real estate analytics) stated “house price growth continues to surprise to the upside with an impressive 12.1% gain year over year in April.” Lawrence Yun, the National Association of REALTORS® chief economist, said the market is solidly recovering. In the Northeast, existing home sales are 9.1% above the first quarter of 2012 and the median home price rose 2.9%.

Statewide, the New Hampshire Association of REALTORS® reports year to date through April that sales are up 9% and the median price is up 5%. At the local level, I compared sales in New London, Sunapee, & Newbury from 1/1 to 6/1 in 2012 and 2013. Surprisingly, more homes sold in 2012 than 2013 in this time period. In 2012, there were a total of 57 homes sold and in 2013, 48 homes sold. These numbers contradict both state and national trends. Keep in mind – all markets all local. I think we will see these figures change as we get into full swing with our summer selling season. Most REALTORS® seem to be super busy right now as buyers continue to take advantage of low prices and low interest rates.
