This home, The McGrath/Lorey house, built in the early 1700’s and with the same family until now, is filled with so much history plus wonderful and interesting stories such as the femme fatale that once lived there during prohibition.

I remember when we purchased our first home back in 1988 and mortgage interest rates were 11%! I worked for a bank at the time and was elated to get a discounted rate of 8% which helped us tremendously to purchase our brand new condominium which at the time was $125,000, a stretch for our budget.

Well luckily it is now 2016 right around the corner from 2017 and though the mortgage rates have slightly creeped up, they are still historically low. When buyers and sellers ask me questions about predicting the future market, I give them my professional opinion of course, but I always say “if I only had a crystal ball”, which I do not, I could predict with certainty the future of the real estate market.

So why do you ask is the real estate market so HOT? Because no one can predict where the mortgage interest rates will go to in the New Year and most people don’t realize how even the smallest increase in the rate can effect a buyers buying power. That my friends is getting buyers off the fence even in the midst of a cold holiday season when most sellers think no one is buying…think again.

Mortgage rates profound effect on affordability. Below is an example of how the price of waiting can affect your buying power;

Rate Payment Max Price Buying Power Difference
3.875%  $1,900  $380,000  $0
4.375%  $1,900  $363,000  -$17,000
4.875%  $1,900  $345,000  -$35,000

So what are you waiting for, with home prices at their lowest in years and definitely on the rise and historically low interest rates, there has never been a better time to buy a piece of the American dream and buy your own home!
