Moving can entail a mix of various criteria that all must work together seamlessly. For some people, this overwhelming task may be easy to put off – even if all other factors point to it being the right time to make this change. So, will 2019 be a good time for you to make a move?
According to some experts, the U.S. economy is anticipated to grow between 3 and 5% in 2019. With that in mind – and with home construction in-tact, strong employment figures, and wages on the rise – it could make 2019 a year of a strong buyer’s market. This is the case, even given the slight rise in interest rates that was seen in 2018. In fact, in many areas of the U.S., there is a great deal of pent up demand for homes.
In addition, given the vast uncertainty – along with increased volatility – of the stock market, making an investment in the American dream of home ownership could also bode well for stability in your overall asset mix.
If you’re considering an upcoming move, but you just aren’t sure where to start, then working with an experienced real estate professional can make a big difference. In doing so, you can hand off many of the time-consuming tasks, like advertising and showing your current residence.
In addition, a realtor can provide you with important information on the value of your current home so that you can properly set the listing price. In this case, pricing your home properly right from the start could mean the difference between selling it and moving on quickly, or having to pay two mortgages for an indefinite period of time.
