Best Real Estate Company in Cleveland, Ohio – RE/MAX Buying/Selling a Home
The weather is heating up and it’s a fabulous time to buy or sell your home in Northeast, Ohio. This spring/summer of 2013, the real estate market is on the increase and so are home values. If you’re considering selling your home, now is the time to put it on the market as buyers are active. If you’re buying a home, interest rates are low and in most cases, it’s cheaper than renting.
Homes are selling fast and in some cases, we’re seeing multiple offer situations and homes selling in less than a week! While this isn’t the average for all houses, it’s definitely something we’re seeing more of.
Why is the housing market in the Cleveland, Ohio area heating up? Is now a good time to buy or sell a home? Yes! Here’s why…
- Home buyers are out looking! Interest rates are at a record low right now. Buyers know this is the time to buy.
- Many foreclosures/bank owned homes have been purchased in the last few years which means some of the lower priced homes are off the market. This means home comparables are a bit higher and home values have increased/stabilized. (up 10-20% in some areas.)
- Many home buyers were on the fence in the last few years and were not confident in the market. Now that we’ve seen the bottom, many home buyers are anxious to still get a good deal and cash in on low interest rates.
- Those that are not tied to an office or can relocate are looking at Northeast, Ohio due to housing and cost of living being cheaper than most large cities in America.
- FHA loans are still possible and more easily obtained than conventional. With the ability to put 3.5% down on a home without having “perfect” credit, home buyers are not as discouraged about getting a home loan. Many home buyers thought banks weren’t lending like they used to and down payments were higher. Not so!
- Home buyers that have been “on the fence” over the last few years have worked hard building their credit and saving for their down payment. Many are now ready to purchase their perfect home.
- Rental properties are “hot” right now. Many renters are seeing their rents increase and many people looking to rent aren’t finding homes that fit their needs. Many choose to purchase a home instead as it’s in most cases cheaper to own than rent a home right now. Not to mention it’s a great investment and just smart. You Should Own!
- Many investors/corporations have purchased low-priced/bank owned homes and the inventory is lower than it was. Some buyers are actually waiting for new homes to come on the market to view!
- Inventory low, check. Interest rates low, check. Home buyers on the rise, check! This is the perfect storm to buy or sell a home in Northeast, Ohio.
