Better hurry, you’re running out of time! Yes, I’m talking to YOU! Act NOW or you could lose out! What am I referring to? Rising mortgage interest rates!
A Democrat-controlled Congress could put upward pressure on rates because they will likely increase government spending, and more government spending can lead to higher mortgage rates. Which means if you’re looking to sell your home, there will be fewer buyers able to qualify to purchase it making it more difficult to sell. And if you want to buy a home, your buying limit will be reduced as mortgage rates increase so you may not be able to afford the home you really want.
So what’s a person to do? SELL AND BUY NOW! Don’t wait—take advantage of the great low rates available. “How do I do that?” you may ask.
First, if you’re serious about selling your home, then you have to move out of it immediately. Well, okay, not physically, but rather, emotionally. I understand the marks you made on little Billy’s bedroom door as you measured his height as he grew up are priceless. But…I know this is hard to believe…whoever buys your home really doesn’t care about your Billy’s growth history. Nor the place in the backyard you buried Susie’s gerbil after the “funeral”. Nor that special closet where you kept your wedding dress for the last 23 years. Remember, buyers want a “blank slate” to work with when they move into a home.
But there are things you did or can do to make your home more attractive to buyers. Like those hours you labored in the front flower beds to pamper your beautiful azaleas to compete for “yard of the month” in your neighborhood. And the upgrade to your back patio by adding an outdoor kitchen. And converting the carpets to hard-surface flooring. And painting the interior “Agreeable Gray” was also a smart move. So what else should you consider doing? Here are just a few ideas:
So what are you waiting for? These historically low interest rates may not last long. Don’t be one of those people saying, “What was I thinking? Why didn’t I act when interest rates were so low?!” ACT NOW!
