Sold, expired and home listings pulled out of the market brought down inventory vs last month. The number of listings priced below $340K remain below 6 months inventory level. If you are looking for a home at this price range your choices will be limited. Above $340K, the number of listings available doubles.
Home prices are up, but still down 15% from “bubble level” highs that Flagstaff had in May 2007. If home prices continue its upward trajectory, would be home sellers who bought their property at the top of the real estate market in 2006-2007 will not have to wait long to see their home values match or exceed their purchase price. In fact, some neighborhoods in town are experiencing robust growth that median home prices are not much lower than $400K – the highest in May 2007.
Home Buyers: If you are still on the fence about buying, here are 4 great reasons to buy now:
1. Mortgage rates have remained very low. The 30-year fixed rate is currently at 3.625% with 25% down.
2. Home Price Expectations Poll reports that home prices will continue to rise.
3. Mortgage rates are projected to rise one full percentage point next year.
4. Renters pay mortgage too- their landlord's principal plus rate of return, while homeowner's pay down their own mortgage
