“Many Buyers do not realize that the Seller pays the commission for the Buyer’s agent.  It is in a Buyer’s best interest to have Buyer Agent representation because buyers can easily be taken advantage of during the buying process.  Real estate is a matter of law and all buyers should have protective representation.” – Kevin White

Why buy today?

It’s simple. When the market offers you lower interest rates it increases your qualifed price range due to lower monthly mortgage payments. As we see steadily rising interest rates, which are projected to potentially reach 4.5% in 2016/2017, the size and quality of your choices will begin to diminish. Buying a condo in today’s market allows you to take advantage of today’s low interest rates and maximize your investment. Do not miss this opportunity to own your luxury condo or townhome for less monthly!

When interest rates increase by 1% it reduces a buyer’s purchasing power by approximately 11%.So, if your qualified price range today is $600,000 and interest rates increase 1% prior to your purchase then your approximate qualified price range would then be $534,000- a$66,000 difference!  See the graph below for a clear example of how even a small .125% increase in mortgage rates will impact your price range.  Graph courtesy of The Mortgage Reports
