I once sat in your shoes, living in Trotter’s Apartment Complex — unit 174 — and wondering if it was the right time to buy a home. It was 2003, and the market was a lot different than today. However, after five years living in Locust Curve, I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions of our life.
Why is today a good time to buy a house?
- $8,000 tax incentive from the government.
- Reduced Prices
- Increased Inventory
- Low interest rates
For example, a $150,000 house with $5,250 down and a 4.75 percent interest rate fixed over 30-years will cost you only $755.08 per month for principle and interest (don’t forget to factor in taxes and insurance for your full monthly payment). The best part is that $150,000 goes a lot further than it did five years ago.
Buying a new home – especially in today’s climate – can be a scary experience but it doesn’t have to be. When you work with professionals, the experience becomes enjoyable.
