Newsflash! It's also a Great Time to Buy
What? Don't believe me? Think it's a seller's market only? Not when you look at it this way. Let's break it down.
First, you've got competitive, low interest rates. Dollars are going farther than historic averages. Second, for all this talk of, "There are no homes for sale," there are actually more homes coming on the market right now! Third: If you're renting, buying in this market is still going to give you a leg up at just about every price point. Rent prices have climbed significantly and it's often easier to find a house to buy vs. a house to rent right now.
And then there's this: Quality of life!
Can we stop pretending that decisions on buying and selling should exclusively be based on dollars and cents? Let's say you don't love where you live. Nothing's wrong with the house - but you know there's another neighborhood, another home, that's so much better suited for what you want out of life.
How many years are you planning on living in a situation that does not bring you joy? How many years is it ok to waste coming home to a house that you just don't like? How would it change your daily life to walk up in a home that you love? How would it feel to not want to go on vacation, because you love where you live so much?
It's always the right time to buy a house that makes you happy to call it "home."
