Spring is here and it’s in full force.  If you are thinking about moving into your dream home, here are four great reasons to consider listing your home and moving into your dream home now, instead of waiting.


1. Buyer Demand is High & Inventory is Low

Recent numbers show that buyer demand is at its highest and inventory sales are low.  Listing your home today can increase exposure to buyers who are out in full force.


2. Prices Will Continue to Rise

CoreLogic predicts that national home values will appreciate by 5.3% this time next year.  Waiting for your current home’s value to increase before selling could price you out of your dream home if you aren’t careful.


3. Mortgage Interest Rates Are Still Near Record Lows

Interest rates are still below 4%.  The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac & the National Association of Realtors are projecting that rates will rise over the next 12 months. An increase in rates will impact YOUR mortgage payment.  Your housing expenses will be more a year from now if a mortgage is necessary for you to buy your home.


4. It’s Time to Move On With Your Life

The price of a home and the current mortgage rate appear to be on the rise. Think if they weren’t. Would you wait? Look at the actual reason why you are buying and decide whether it is worth waiting. If moving for you and your family is the right thing to do this year, buying now rather than later could lead to substantial savings.
