Are you on the fence about making your move in the Cedar Valley area? Today we will discuss current market conditions so you can make an informed decision.

Right now, interest rates are at 3.75%, which is incredible. Many experts were expecting rates to jump a full point by now, but we have not yet seen that. In addition to low rates, FHA has reduced its mortgage premium substantially, which means more people will be eligible for financing. 

It's important to keep in mind that people are still expecting rates to rise this year, but no one is sure exactly when it will happen. A 1% rise in rates will substantially affect your buying power, so there's no reason to wait if you're ready to move. In our area, there's a lot of tax abatement and tax incentives for new construction, making now an ideal time to build a new home!

Lately, we've received a lot of questions about the best time to put a house on the market. The market is currently pretty active, but usually I tell people that the third week of January is the real start of the spring market. Recently, interest rates dropped as low as 3.75%, which means payments are as low right now as you're likely to see them for quite some time.

There's a lot of new construction around town right now. If you take a drive around our area, you'll see three new subdivisions going up right this very moment. Bottom line: the market is incredibly active right now.
