4 Reasons Spring is a Great Time to Buy a Home!

Here are four great reasons to consider buying a home today instead of waiting.

Prices Will Continue to Rise

CoreLogic’s latest Home Price Index reports that home prices have appreciated by 6.6% over the last 12 months. The same report predicts that prices will continue to increase at a rate of 4.3% over the next year.

The bottom in home prices has come and gone. Home values will continue to appreciate for years. Waiting no longer makes sense.

Mortgage Interest Rates Are Projected to Increase

Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey shows that interest rates for a 30-year mortgage hovered close to 4.0% in 2017. Most experts predict that rates will rise over the next 12 months. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the National Association of Realtors are in unison, projecting that rates will increase by nearly a full percentage point by this time next year.

An increase in rates will impact YOUR monthly mortgage payment. A year from now, your housing expense will increase if a mortgage is necessary to buy your next home.

Either Way, You Are Paying a Mortgage

There are some renters who have not yet purchased a home because they are uncomfortable taking on the obligation of a mortgage. Everyone should realize that unless you are living with your parents rent-free, you are paying a mortgage – either yours or your landlord’s.

As an owner, your mortgage payment is a form of ‘forced savings’ that allows you to have equity in your home that you can tap into later in life. As a renter, you guarantee your landlord is the person with that equity.

Are you ready to put your housing cost to work for you?

It’s Time to Move on with Your Life

The ‘cost’ of a home is determined by two major components: the price of the home and the current mortgage rate. It appears that both are on the rise.

But what if they weren’t? Would you wait?

Look at the actual reason you are buying and decide if it is worth waiting. Whether you want to have a great place for your children to grow up, you want your family to be safer, or you just want to have control over renovations, maybe now is the time to buy.

If the right thing for you and your family is to purchase a home this year, buying sooner rather than later could lead to substantial savings.

About Area

Blairsville is a small mountain community in the Northeast Georgia Mountains. Almost two thirds of Union County, in which Blairsville is located, is inside the Chattahoochee National Forest. Therefore, Mother Nature reigns supreme in the area. Outdoor activities of all types are celebrated. Visitors can find themselves hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, or even exploring three rushing waterfalls including the twin cascades at Helton Creek Falls. In addition, there are warm weather water sports on pristine Lake Winfield Scott and Lake Nottely, and the 20-acre lake and swimming beach at one of Georgia’s most beloved summer getaways, Vogel State Park. Many different picturesque settings are available for real estate, like mountain views, rolling pastures, creeks, rivers, and many combinations of them all. The pace of living invites you to just sit in the porch swing and listen to nature around you. Blairsville is also host to many unique and fun festivals all throughout the year. The Historic Town Square is frequently the venue for annual events such as the Downtown Spring Arts & Crafts Festival, the Memorial Day Parade, the Green Bean Festival, the Bluegrass Festival, the Sorghum Parade, Hometown Halloween on the Square, and the Christmas Parade. Everyone is invited to these family oriented celebrations! If you’ve ever wanted to experience mountain living at it’s best, Blairsville is for you, and Century 21 Scenic Realty is the Agency you need.
