Don’t Delay! Why This Year Might Be the Right Time to Buy

Don’t Delay! Why This Year Might Be the Right Time to Buy

Hey everyone, Mike David here with Oklahoma Mortgage Group. I get it – the Fed’s actions have made mortgage rates jump, making home buying feel less affordable. But before you give up on your dream of owning a home, let’s dive into what this all means for the rest of the year.

Rates Might Fall – But When?

Experts are keeping an eye on the Fed’s upcoming March meeting, but don’t expect instant relief on mortgage rates. However, we could see those rates drop later in 2024 if inflation gets under control. This means the longer you wait, the better your chances could be.

Time Might Be Of The Essence

The housing market is all about timing and opportunity. If you find that perfect house right now and feel financially ready, don’t let higher rates totally scare you off. Here’s why:

  • Refinance: Rates are projected to go down. You can always refinance your mortgage in the future to snag a lower interest rate!
  • Seller Incentives: With some markets softening, you could negotiate seller concessions to offset potential costs – things like a buydown to lower your rate.
  • Your Life Matters Most: If buying now makes sense for your life and goals, don’t let fear of the unknown prevent you from becoming a homeowner!
