    3 REASONS TO PURCHASE A HOME RIGHT NOW

    If you’re thinking of buying a home, there are three reasons why now is a great time to purchase. First, interest rates are very low, which means you can buy more home for less. Second, we’re not seeing many multiple-offer situations—this gives you a better chance to buy the home you’re looking for. Last, rents only have one place to go, and that’s up. See our blog for more related content.

    2020 PROMISES TO BE A BUYER’S AND SELLER’S MARKET

    Economists predict the 2020 housing market will look a lot like it did in 2019. That’s good news for both sellers and buyers. Low mortgage rates will continue to entice people to buy, and Millennials are one group that’s expected to make a big entrance into the housing market. As buyers enjoy great rates, sellers will continue to benefit from supply and demand. With more people wanting to buy than sell, sellers will be more likely to see top dollar for their homes.

    ONE EASY WAY TO INCREASE YOUR NET WORTH


    If you’re looking for a way to increase your family’s wealth, it’s time to think beyond the savings account. US Census Bureau researchers are saying that home ownership is the biggest factor in determining wealth (in addition to having a retirement account). So if you want to grow your wealth, take that step to buy your first home. Or, if you’re already a homeowner, buy another one! The website Keeping Current Matters offers more insight, links, and graphics to this smart way of investing.

    2019 ENDS IN A SELLER'S MARKET

    The data is in, proving most of the predictions wrong: late 2019 was a huge win for sellers in King County. According to the numbers, “there were more buyers chasing fewer homes for sale than any time since May 2018.” This surprised the prognosticators who thought for sure we’d have a buyer’s market.
