Now that the housing market has stabilized, more and more homeowners are considering moving up to their dream home. With interest rates still near 4% and home values on the rise, now may be a great time to make a move.
Sellers should realize that waiting while mortgage rates are increasing probably doesn’t make sense. As rates increase, the price of the house you can afford will decrease if you plan to stay within a certain budget for your monthly housing costs.
Here is a chart detailing this point:
With each quarter percent increase in interest rate, the value of the home you can afford decreases by 2.5%, (in this example, $10,000). Expertspredictthat mortgage rates will be closer to 5% by this time next year.
Act now to get the most house for yourhard earnedmoney.

"Ryan sold my Dallas town home in about 2 weeks time. He was extremely professional. He told me from the very start what to expect, provided me comps,hired a few contractors he preferred to prepare our home for sale , had an open house & kept me informed during the entire process. He is very honest and he made the entire sales process a great experience. Ryan made our closing so easy by hiring title company he has used that was the best. We closed remotely since I live 3 hours from Dallas & the entire operation was first class. I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone with their real estate needs. "
