SPRING Season is just starting. Every year, spring is the season with the most re estate activity. As the snow melts and temperatures rise more sellers and buyers enter the market. Aside from weather, the season is also helped by school calendars: sellers waiting for the school year to end before moving elsewhere are an example. Buyers planning to be in their new home before the school year starts also are stirring.
Right now, inventory is stil relatively low but we know of quite a few sellers who are putting some final touches on their homes before listing them. If you are considering the sale of your current home this year, spring may be the best time to make your move. Interest rates are still very low, but who knows for how much longer? In many parts of the country new construction has been picking up and will create some competition for existing home sales sooner or later.

If you are considering a sale, while the drop in prices over the last few years may give you pause, remember that most likely you will also be a buyer and the lower prices and those record-low interest rates may not last.
If you are considering a buy, remember that interest rates are still at historic lows. It is a virtual certainty that sooner or later they will go up. A small increase in the interest rate has a disproportionate effect on the size of loan you can afford with a given level of income. Do the numbers yourself by examining the impact of a 1% increase in interest rates on the payments for a 30 year loan. You will find that a 1% increase in interest rates, with approximately the same payment as before, translates into a home price that you can afford that is much less.
