As a buyer, how many of you have said, “We’re just looking right now”, or, “We’re looking to buy in the summer” ? I bet most have. We get so caught up in day to day activities in our lives and keep pushing our never-ending to-do list aside. You want that new & updated home but just haven’t found the time to inquire about it. The time is now! Market in Hampstead is phenomenal! Homes are available on Monday, and by Wednesday they are under contract! With new construction going up, buyers are being more proactive and diligent in their home search, AND putting in offers quicker. Let’s not forget the fact of mortgage rates increasing. As of today, current mortgage rates are at 4.25% on a 30 year fixed loan. It has jumped in numbers since 2016 when we were at 3.5%. Rates change every single day, they move with the current economy, and based on the most recent election of President Donald Trump, rates are not expected to stay steady. Consumers need to lock in their rates without delay to get the best possible deal. Contact Coastal Realty Associates today to get started on your home buying process!
