Happy Halloween

Is now a scary time to sell your home? (Excuse the pun and Happy Halloween).  No it’s not and let me tell you why.  Now is the time that you will get the most face time with potential buyers.  I held 18 open houses during the month of October and the number of open house attendees has dramatically improved over this time last year.  Also, as you know, the number of potential buyers searching for homes online is increasing every day.  What if we were in an increasing interest rate environment?  Would fewer people qualify?  Would more people be looking to buy before rates get too high?  We are….yes….and YES.   Due to the daily changing environment of the mortgage world, now is the best time to sell.  With increasing interest rates, fewer people qualify and the ones that can afford it may get “scared” away with a much higher payment.

It’s almost impossible to time the market.  All you can do is deal with the facts.  Whether you are looking to buy or sell, I would say that now is the time.  There are too many market indicators pointing us in that direction.

Just a quick note to the agents and customers following my blog. USDA is now one of the only options to secure 100% financing. By the end of April, the USDA will be out of funds. There is no word yet on whether those funds will be replenished. Please plan accordingly!
