Interest Rates Are Coming Down Soon: Buyers Need To Act Now
How buyers can take advantage of future rate decreases today.
I know some of you may not want to hear this, but it's essential to consider the current real estate market and future predictions. My crystal ball indicates that rates will be coming down in the future, making the next six months an opportune time to buy real estate.
During this time of the year, sellers become more motivated, leading to potential price reductions. Additionally, the 2-1 buydown option can make rates more favorable for the first two years before returning to the normal rate. However, experts predict that rates will gradually soften and come down in the next 18 to 24 months, possibly reaching the 5% range.
While it's crucial to be comfortable with the current 7% rate, all signs point to rates becoming more buyer-friendly. The Federal Reserve’s stance will likely remain solid, and banks can still be profitable with rates in the 5% range.
"Act now so that you don’t miss out."
In the spring, prices usually go up due to appreciation, which occurs in stair steps. Currently, it's still a seller's market, with limited inventory and high demand. Waiting for rates to drop might lead to missed opportunities and increased competition among buyers when rates become more favorable.
To avoid regret and potential competition, it's wise to take action now. Whether you're a cash buyer or considering a 2-1 buydown, this is the time to make a move.
