3 Tips for Spring Home Buying

In Hamilton Mill and many other parts of the country the busy spring home-buying season is already underway—March typically ushers in a significant increase in home searches online. This year, even more people than last year are jumping into the search process as a result of improving financial circumstances, like a new job, or life events, like a new baby.

That said, many report that it’s still difficult to find a home that fits their needs and budget. That means this process may take longer than you expect. So, like the Fed keeps telling us, be patient. And be prepared.

1. Consider your alternatives

Mortgage rates are low for now, but they’ll be moving up, and likely remain volatile, in the months ahead. In any

Mortgage Interest Rates at Lowest Level in 18 Months

Are you in the market to sell your Hamilton Mill home?  Or possibly re-finance?  With mortgage rates at an all time low, this may be the time to move.

People love to talk about interest rates and whether they’re moving higher or lower and how that affects housing. We’ve been in a low-interest-rate environment for so long, we don’t even really remember high interest rates. Back in March 1982, interest rates averaged 17%. This week, rates moved to their lowest level since May 2013—3.75%—according to Freddie Mac.

While rates have been low since the housing market collapse in 2008, they’ve only recently spurred people to start buying houses again. Sales are up, but so are prices. Inventory is low,

Call your agent and get your home listed for sale! If you are considering selling, now is the time to do it. Demand is up, rates are down and spring has sprung in many markets. 

I just read a article from Keeping Current Matters that I wanted to share that I do feel is appropriate and needs to be considered if you are thinking of selling your house this spring.

This month in real estate, Dacula Georgia and Hamilton Mill.

As a service to you our clients, we wanted to provide this insightful information on the real estate market on a national level. Overall the homes sales in Dacula, Georgia and Hamilton Mill remain strong but there is a underlying current of a rise in interest rates that will affect both buyers and sellers this spring. 

Mortgage rates are on the rise and we all need to know how this will impact both those looking to buy or sell. As interest rates rise, home buyers will have to pay more in monthly mortgage payments which will lower their buying power. A 1% rise in interest rates typically lowers a buyers price point by 10%. This rise in interest rates also has an impact on sellers as less

Spring Forward is approaching!

The dark days of winter are almost over.

Daylight-saving time begins on March 8, 2015. That's this coming Sunday.

That means at 2 a.m. on March 8 you will move your clocks forward one hour.

Spring forward, if you will. You may lose an hour of sleep, but you'll gain a hour of daylight in the evening.

The twice-yearly routine of changing the clocks was mandated by Congress in the Energy Policy Act of 2005. According to the U.S. Naval Observatory, the times have been altered through the years, but as of 2007 daylight time begins in most of the U.S. on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

Some history:

*Benjamin Franklin first suggested the idea of daylight-saving time in
