If you have a home and are thinking of selling it you should act NOW.  We have seen a substantial
increase in market activity over the last week and the our Spring market is in full bloom.  The market
seems to be fueled by pent up buyer demand and super low interest rates.  Someone with good credit
can still get a loan under 4%.  Recent comments from the Fed is that rates will likely start to rise by Summer.

Here is some info on the national market conditions.

Have you been putting off buying a home because you thought you needed a large down payment?  Today is the day all of that changes.  Freddie Mac will now buy loans based on a 3% down payment.  Since Freddie Mac buys loans from banks and other lenders in the aftermarket, we will now see a lot of great lending programs that only require a 3% down payment.

Low down payments combined with low interest rates is going to open up the market to a lot of buyers who have been sidelined by the high entrance fee (down payment) into home ownership.  There's a good chance that this could significantly impact demand for entry level housing like condos, townhouses and small single family homes.  Higher demand will put upward pressure on prices and we could see prices increase quickly.  If you want to take advantage of this new trend you should act quickly.  Low rates combined with a low down payment and increased inventory provide an outstanding opportunity for buyers.  Act before it's too late!

One of the biggest advantages of owning a home over renting is the hedge against inflation that a mortgage provides.  If you buy a house with a fixed loan your payments will remain the same throughout the duration of the loan.  Rent,
on the other hand will rise at the pace of inflation or even faster depending on the overall
market conditions of supply and demand. Go here (make this the link to the blog post) to see some examples.

In addition to keeping your monthly housing cost consistent over time you will also be building equity through your monthly payments and increased value of a home you own.  If you rent you are doing all of that for your landlord.  That's what makes owning real estate investments so attractive and were so many people build wealth.
