Summer 2021 is still a good time to buy real estate

/ / Mortgage

Maybe I’m dating myself a little bit, but I’ve been humming this one in my head the last few weeks.

After a rough year and a half of feeling locked up, the freedom of summer never felt better.

If you’ve been out and about at all, you can see that people are EVERYWHERE.

People are traveling, spending money and starting to enjoy events again (even if it’s a smaller scale).

In the real estate world, that means things are NOT slowing down.

Mortgage rates are holding steady and houses continue to sell within days of being listed on the market.

If you’re still thinking about buying a home, a second home/vacation property or investment property, now is still a good time.

Or, if you are approaching retirement age or have a senior family member, it may be time to learn more about how a reverse mortgage might help.

But I wouldn’t wait too much longer. No one is quite sure how or when the market will shift.

And if you are considering hopping into the purchase market, the time to get pre-qualified is right now.

In this market, sellers will not take your offer seriously unless you have a pre-approval letter from a trusted lender like me.

I hope you get out and enjoy your summer! And if real estate is still on your mind, please get in touch today and let’s talk.
