OK, this particular blog entry isn’t for everyone. Even if you’re not looking to buy a home right now, the message is worth keeping in mind for your next home search:
There are lots of great reasons to buy a home before the end of the year.
Here are some of them:
Mortgage rates are still relatively low.
They’re not as low as they were a few months ago, but mortgage rates are still more attractive today than they have been in recent years. If you can lock in a good rate now, that can be a lasting benefit that helps you for many years.
It might be easier to get a mortgage right now.
Lenders may be willing to work with new customers like you — because recently, less people have been applying for loans. So you could possibly get a better rate and more friendly terms than you might think.
Home prices are still within reach.
Although inventory is shrinking, many available homes are still reasonably priced — especially homes that have been on the market for a while. Those sellers in particular might be willing to lower their price to get a deal done before the year ends.
And one of the best reasons to buy a home by the end of the year…the tax benefits!
There are few deductions bigger than a home purchase. By completing the transaction in 2013, you could stand to get a lot of help on your income tax return!
Maybe you were planning to buy a home next year, or you’re just tired of paying rent. Whatever your situation is, a home purchase before the end of this year can be beneficial — and I can help you see if it’s possible!
