“Buying a Home Sooner Rather than Later”

“Buying a Home Sooner Rather than Later”






Good morning Joe,

                Happy New Year! I hope you and your loved ones had a great new year and enjoyed the holidays! I am at the point in my life where I am considering purchasing a home and need to see what I qualify for. To be honest my credit is not stellar due to some things from my past life that I carried forward however have since been taking care of those obligations which I realize may not be 100% reflective on my credit report yet. None the less please let me know what we need to do to start the process.



The stock market has had amazing gains over the last 12 months and as crazy as it sounds is showing no signs of slowing down. So, what does that mean for interest rates going forward? Simply put, investors are putting more money into the stock market and often are taking money out of the bonds market. When money is pulled out of the bond market it means that interest rates are going to move upward.


I wish I could look into a crystal ball and say how long this will continue, but rates are most likely going to continue this current trend for a while.


If buying a home is in your future begin the process sooner rather than later.

Yes, if someone is considering purchasing a home, they should get the process started now.

Better hurry and lock up the rates before they go any higher!!!

Investors often are taking money out of the bonds market. When money is pulled out of the bond market it means that interest rates are going to move upward.

Good morning Joe. For those not comitting funds to investment, now is the time to buy a home and begin building equity. Enjoy your day!

Definitely a time to get into the market before rates go up some more!

Yes, and do not ignore credit issues.  More people need to stop the spending and be more fiscally responsible.  Let's not let the government be the example of that !!!

In all conditions, Real Estate purchase/investment is far better than Stocks and bonds. When all else fails you still have a roof over the head.
