The real estate market continues to move forward despite mortgage rates moving up and down weekly. I have definitely seen an upward trend in buyers coming back into this market. The most important phone call to make if you’re even thinking about buying a home is to an experienced lender. It is VITAL that you understand how much your payment will be and that you’re comfortable with it before you start shopping for your next home. In technical terms, an announcement from OPEC says they will be cutting oil production which could affect inflation. We also have a jobs report coming out this week which could be good for rates depending on what the report says. All of these factors are not necessarily something that will stand in the way of you buying a home. That’s why a phone call to an experienced lender can give you the answers you’re looking for regarding your next step. I’m happy to refer you to a lender and help map out what home buying looks like for you!
