For Sale By Owner

by Mike Morse

Real estate salespeople help their clients buy and sell properties everyday and have the experience to handle all of the steps and issues that arise in a transaction. Every transaction is unique and complicated. Here is an infographic about the challenges of selling your home without a real estate salesperson. 

Should I Buy a Home Now?

by Mike Morse

We are often asked if this is a good time to buy a home. Some clients are concerned that home prices may fall down the road, while others are convinced that home prices will go up.

Home prices are one factor in determining your cost of ownership, but so are interest rates and financing availability. Even though interest rates have fluctuated, they are still near historic lows. Since your monthly mortgage payment is a combination of paying down your principal and paying the interest owed, a one point rise in interest rates could cost tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your mortgage!

While a home is a major investment, it is also the center of your personal life. It's important to live in a home that reflects your taste and values, yet is within your financial "comfort zone." To that end, it may be more important to lock in today's relatively low interest rates while they are still available.

Please give a Morse Real Estate RealtorĀ® a call if we can be of any assistance in determining how much home you can afford in today's market.
