Conditions Are Right For Buying The Higher Priced Home You’Ve Always Wanted
W. Troy Swezey
Higher interest rates and home prices in the past have kept home owners from purchasing larger homes. The current real estate market conditions, however, are encouraging for many home owners who want to “buy up” to higher priced homes with more to offer.
If you are considering trading up for a larger and more expensive home, conditions for doing so couldn’t get much better. Interest rates are the lowest they’ve been in two decades, and home prices in many regions are the most affordable they’ve been in years.
You should consider a few factors before reaching a decision to trade up:
Obviously, you’ll need to sell your current home before getting serious about trading up to a new one. A healthy real estate market indicates that you’ll have little trouble selling your existing home. The national Association of Realtors reported in August that sales of existing single-family homes are rising steadily, especially among first-time buyers. Affordable home prices and low interest rates could make the starter home you purchase several years ago particularly attractive.
If you can afford the up-front cost, you may want to consider switching the fixed-rate mortgage on your old house for an adjustable rate on a new one. This could allow you to trade up without increasing your monthly payments.
The type of mortgage you choose also depends on how long you plan to stay in your new home. A good mortgage lender can advise you on whether a fixed-rate is an advantage is you’re planning on staying for more than 10 years. A fixed-rate may be better for long term owners who don’t want to worry about rising mortgage payments.
Trading up may not be worth the move if you’re planning on living in the new home for only a couple of years. You might have to stay three to five years for your house to appreciate enough to recoup the closing costs.
Conditions for a move-up haven’t been this good in many years, and you may not want to wait much longer to consider it. An experienced real estate broker can help you decide if buying a new house now is a good investment for you.
