Knowing When to Buy a Home in Stephenville

Back to Real Estate News

It’s no mystery to most of you that now is a great time to purchase Sephenville real estate, but what many don’t know is why. The housing market is bouncing back, and that means favorable conditions all around for potential buyers.

The housing market is unique in that unlike other goods and services there is no “best time of year” to buy a house. Of course, it’s best to time your purchase to best suit your personal reasons. If your boss is thinking about transferring you to another state, you may not want to consider buying a home. But while there isn’t a set time of year to buy a home for you and your family, there are a few indicators to help you find the absolute best time to buy a house.

Take for example, interest rates. Buying a house when interest rates are low will lead to an overall reduction in your monthly payments. Economic analysts have calculated that factors that affect interest rates, such as inflation, have been at all time lows. A  home owner might also check if they are eligible to refinance their high interest mortgage. On the other hand, one might consider converting their adjustable rate mortgage to a fixed rate mortgage.

Prices are a dependent on the state of the market. Is it a buyers market or a seller’s market? A buyers market — when there is more inventory than buyers–  puts the potential buyer in a position of power, allowing the buyer to bargain with sellers to get a better price. A seller’s market creates the inverse environment, with sellers having the upper hand when it comes to bargaining.
