Why Now is a Great Time to Buy a New Home

Spending more time at home during the coronavirus lockdowns has led a lot of people to take a closer look at their homes. Many found that they are too small, too big, or just not designed well for their needs—especially those who found themselves working from home. Others noticed that their homes are hopelessly outdated. However, after determining how much hassle and expense a renovation would incur, they came to the conclusion that building a new home is a much better idea. There are many more reasons to build a new home. But is now the best time to build?

Low Mortgage Rates and Limited Resale Inventory

Mortgage rates are at an all-time low, with rates hovering close to 3%. Which is another reason the housing market is hot right now. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, there has been a prominent rise in mortgage applications this month. Yet, preowned homes inventory is low, which is bad if you’re interested in buying one. But if you build a home or buy a new move-in ready home, it’s good—because it will make selling your current home easier than ever. If you start the process now, Fischer & Frichtel can have your brand new dream home ready for you before the holidays! If that’s not soon enough, you can always purchase one of their Move-In Ready homes.
