Low Interest Rates: Why Now May Be the Time to Buy
Home has never meant more than it does right now. And with interest rates currently dropping to historic lows, now may be a great time to buy a new home. The average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage decreased in March 2020. And interest rates are predicted to go even lower for a short time.
Read on to learn more about how lower interest rates could help you move into the home of your dreams.
Enjoy lower monthly payments.
When you purchase a home, you’re likely taking out a mortgage. And having a low mortgage interest rate translates to a lower monthly payment for you, giving you more buying power. Plus, with a lower monthly payment, you may be able to buy that new Pardee home you’ve been looking at sooner than you think.
Experience a smoother transition from renting.
What do lower interest rates mean for first-time homebuyers who are switching from renting? It means that your mortgage payments could be similar to what you’re paying in rent right now. And, as a first-time homebuyer, that would make it an easier transition into having a mortgage. Homeownership may be closer than you think!
