Should I Buy a Home Now?

by Eric Glassoff

I'm often asked if this is a good time to buy a home. Some clients are concerned that home prices may fall further than they have already. They are assuming that the best course of action is to wait for the bottom in the market and then buy. The problem with this approach is that you don't know where the bottom is until you see it in the rear view mirror, meaning until you've missed it!

Home prices are one factor in determining your cost of ownership, but so are interest rates and financing availability. Even though interest rates have gone up in the last six months, they are still near historic lows. Since your monthly mortgage payment is a combination of paying down your principal and paying the interest owed, if home prices come down a little further but interest rates up, it could cost you even more to service a mortgage on an identical home!

While a home is a major investment, it is also the center of your personal life. It's important to live in a home that reflects your taste and values, yet is within your financial "comfort zone." To that end, it may be more important to lock in today's relatively low interest rates and low home prices, rather than to hope for a further break in prices in the future.

Please give me a call if I can be of any assistance in determining how much home you can afford in today's market.

Testimonials

I was a first time home buyer looking a place in Brookline, and Newton area for a quite well, and tiredly had worked with several agents in 2008-2009.  I decided to find a place myself, and it happened that I found that sales agent Eric Glassoff had lots of the hot units in Brookline for sale.  So why not work with him as buyer agent then?After I started to work with him, I was so impressed with his professional knowledge, ability to educate clients, working efficiency, honesty, loyalty, and the capability to make a deal happen in the best interest of his client.  After I looked at 2-3 properties, I happily bought a dream home at Newton.  I strongly recommend Eric to any home buyers, as his excellence in business as well as his loyalty to his clients will bring you satisfaction in purchasing your dream home.  "Susan Zhang"...
