Waiting to Purchase a Home May Cost You

It may seem you are being prudent in waiting to purchase a home, but in fact, you may be hurting yourself financially. Often when you wait to see if rates will decrease, they do the opposite. Which means that if you were to wait to buy a home, it would take additional funds to purchase it in the future. Projected rates for a $250,000 home in the next quarter are 4% which is $35.75 a month more than if you purchased a home now, and it is projected to be as much as $79.39 a month in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Lock in a Lower Rate Now

It’s easy to see how waiting to purchase a home can be detrimental to your financial well-being with the forecasted rates. You may not feel you are financially sound enough to buy a home, but if you wait until rates hit 5%, you are going to have less income to save and invest. Acting now ensures that you will be able to get a rate below 4%. You may be nervous, especially if you are a first-time home buyer, but locking in a lower rate now means you will save more money over the long run. When compared to rent costs, the savings can be significant.
