The Price Of Waiting To Buy A Home

There is much more to consider when purchasing a home than just the purchase price. The cost of waiting should be a large influence on when to make a home purchase. The cost of waiting has two major considerations, the home’s appreciation over time, and the interest rate at which a buyer will get on their loan. Home prices are currently rising about 6% a year in San Diego. The cost of borrowing is also expected to increase as interest rates look to appreciate, according to Freddie Mac. This means the ‘cost of waiting’ could have a big impact on your mortgage. 

For example, on a home costing $500,000 now, with interest rates around 3.5%, your payment would be around $2200.00 per month. The same home next year will likely cost $20-30,000 more due to price increases and the interest rate could be nearly a full point higher at 4.5%, meaning the mortgage payment will cost you about $350 more per month. ( times 12 months/ year, times 30 years= over $130,000 more)

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole
    my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now
    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    just right content as you probably did, the net can be much more useful than ever before.
