The U.S. Housing Market Forecast has predicted a strong year ahead. Experts anticipate an influx of either new buyers purchasing existing homes or 160,000 new homes being built per year up to 2024. If you’re on the fence trying to decide if renting or owning is best, consider these facts:

  • Owning is still the best way to build net worth. In addition to having a place to call your own, homeownership gives you tax and financial benefits that help you and your family build financial security and better position yourself for retirement.

  • Rent is expensive –
    especially in California. When you own, you know what to expect to pay every month. You don’t have to worry about what happens when a lease ends. A fixed mortgage can’t go up (even if inflation does).

  • Home values are up and are predicted to continue climbing. Positive real estate forecasts give potential homebuyers confidence in accumulating equity and a greater return on their investment.

  • Mortgage rates are still low.
    Even though mortgage rates are predicted to tiptoe higher in 2017, they’re still incredibly low. Now is a great time to take advantage of our competitive rates.
