"2015 is the year of housing opportunity..."

-Julian Castro, Secretary of HUD

This year will be even better than 2014! Spring is historically a time when the market picks up in real estate, leading to an even hotter market in the summer. Yet it looks as though sales didn't slow down this past winter. They have only continued to increase. The National Association of Realtors reported a steady increase in home sales of 6.1% through March, and forecasts for the spring and summer are positive due to the strong economy.

This is a great time for investing in a new home- an upgrade, downsize, new construction, or rental property. This market is not a buyer or seller market, its a HOT market for everyone. A few financial reasons to buy now are increased wages and historically low percentages of money spent monthly on housing. Don' forget interest rates are still historically low. Need a few personal motivators for purchasing now? Buying a home in a good market means you can upgrade from your existing home and possibly make a good profit when you sell.
