No Signs of a Slow Down in Summer Home Sales

In May 2017, the average Days on Market (the cumulative number of days between when a property is listed and when it goes pending) for homes in Ada County was at 33 days and Canyon County was at 36 days. Factor in an additional 30-60 days to close and homes listed in the upcoming weeks may sell at some of the highest prices of the year. Based on monthly averages going back to 2004, homes that close in June, July, and August typically fetch the highest prices.
While inventory of existing homes is still tight in both counties compared to last year (down 15.3% in Ada County and down 20.6% in Canyon County compared to May 2016), there have been month-over-month improvements in the number of existing homes for sale, as more sellers hope to secure a summer closing.
  • February to March 2017, existing inventory grew by 8.8% in Ada County and by 23.2% in Canyon County
  • March to April 2017, existing inventory grew by 19.8% in Ada County and by 4.7% in Canyon County
  • April to May 2017, existing inventory grew by 25.3% in Ada County and by 14.2% in Canyon County

Reasons To Buy This Summer

The age old question, "Should I wait to buy a home?"  Here are four great reasons to consider buying a home today, instead of waiting.

1. Prices Will Continue to Rise

CoreLogic’s latest Home Price Index reports that home prices have appreciated by 7.1% over the last 12 months. The same report predicts that prices will continue to increase at a rate of 4.9% over the next year.
2. Mortgage Interest Rates Are Projected to Increase

Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey shows that interest rates for a 30-year mortgage have remained around 4%. Most experts predict that they will begin to rise over the next 12 months. 

An increase in rates will impact YOUR monthly mortgage payment. A year from now, your housing expense will increase if a mortgage is necessary to buy your next home.

3. Either Way, You are Paying a Mortgage

There are some renters who have not yet purchased a home because they are uncomfortable taking on the obligation of a mortgage. Everyone should realize that, unless you are living with your parents rent-free, you are paying a mortgage - either yours or your landlord’s.
As an owner, your mortgage payment is a form of ‘forced savings’ that allows you to have equity in your home that you can tap into later in life. As a renter, you guarantee your landlord is the person with that equity.

4. It’s Time to Move on with Your Life

The ‘cost’ of a home is determined by two major components: the price of the home and the current mortgage rate. It appears that both are on the rise.
But what if they weren’t? Would you wait?
Look at the actual reason you are buying and decide if it is worth waiting. Whether you want to have a great place for your children to grow up, you want your family to be safer or you just want to have control over renovations, maybe now is the time to buy.

If the right thing for you and your family is to purchase a home this year, buying sooner rather than later could lead to substantial savings.
