MARKET WATCH

WHAT BUYERS NEED TO KNOW

Buyer fatigue is in the air, and many might say they’d rather “wait out the market” than buy a home right now.

“We’re … seeing a softening in consumers’ expectations that home prices will continue to increase; however, in our view, other housing market fundamentals remain supportive of further home price appreciation – including low levels of inventory and low interest rates,” -Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan

If most Americans aren’t expecting home prices to keep going up, they could be in for a surprise a year from now.  

What does this mean for buyers? Now is a GREAT time to take advantage of low interest rates keeping your monthly payments lower even at a higher price point.
