Have you outgrown your current living conditions? Has this year changed the way you look at your house? People are working from home now more than ever. Being home for an 8+ hour shift and having no retreat can really make a person rethink their living situation. After working from home, the kids come home from school and it can be a never-ending cycle of being stuck in the same place all the time.
If this sounds like you, what does your home need to make life a little easier? For some it is a bigger office, larger back yard, more bedrooms to give the kids more space, or a bar in the basement to relax at the end of the day. Whatever your needs may be, it could be the perfect time to seek out these upgrades.
With interest rates at all-time lows and steady consumer confidence in our area, it could be easier than you thought to reach your goals. Keep in mind, every time interest rates go up by 1% your buying power is about $10,000 less. Houses are moving very quickly in our current market. Do not get into 2021 and regret not taking advantage of low interest rates and the current market! 2020 may have made you rethink your housing situation but remember just as many great starts came in years with downturns as have been made in boom years. Stay confident and stay healthy!
