Now Is the Best Time to Purchase Your New Home with Richardson Housing Group!

Model at Oakland Downs 003Is a new home purchase in your near future? If you are considering purchasing a new home, but you are not sure if the time is right, we have some good news – now is the best time!

Owning your own home is still smarter than renting.  In half of all US metro areas, buying is cheaper than renting if you stay in your home for at least two years.  Atlanta consistently ranks as one of the best metro areas to purchase rather than rent a home.  All the transaction costs of buying a home are offset by tax write-offs, appreciated home values, and other great benefits.

During the recent recession, the rate on a 30-year fixed-rate loan averaged 4.32 percent.  Though we have emerged from the recession, rates still remain low!   Time is not on your side for new home loans; if rates increase just by 1 percent, that translates into 11% less buying power for you!  You should secure a home loan and lock in your interest rate now before the rates rise any more.

Lastly, home prices are still affordable.  The end of the recession has signaled the nationwide rise of home prices, but home prices today are still 11 percent lower than their peak in 2007.  Plus, homebuying is more affordable than ever!  A recent Zillow analysis shows that homebuyers are now spending just 15.3 percent of their income on a mortgage, far less than the 22.1 percent they were spending prior to the collapse of the housing market.
