- Is It Time To Buy Or Sell?
When determining the right time to buy, rent or sell a property, it is good to predict if the homes are rising or falling. It is also good to pay keen attention to mortgage rates. These metrics can play a significant role in determining the period of your purchase. Additionally, it would help if you also asked yourself, “am I able to?”
Well, take an example. It is in the summer that families are settling in new homes before the school year starts. And when you check your market, you realize that it is still high compared to other times of the year. During this period, sellers can be eager to sell. Therefore, you need to take a calculated move against all factors and decide whether it is time to make a purchase.
- Is It Time To Rent Or Own?
For most people, choosing to rent or own a home is a significant move that affects your financial health and your lifestyle. However, as much as renting has little to no responsibility and flexibility, many people believe owning a home is more financially sound.
However, your decision on “when to” should depend on your financial readiness, personal readiness, the real estate market, location, among other factors.
Additionally, before making this decision, you need to ask yourself, “for how long am I planning to stay here?” “What is the cost of renting Vs. buying?” “Between mobility and putting down roots, which is more important?” “Finally, what are the risks of renting to buying and vice versa?”
Buying a home can be very stressful but not when you have a good understanding of what you are looking for when buying real estate. Having a person like Lisa that can help educate you and answer all questions is what everyone should have.
Remember that buying a home should be something exciting rather stressful so if at any point you feel stressed out that your questions are not being answered make sure to take a step back and find yourself a great team that can answer all your questions and takes the stress off your shoulders.
