It is no secret that the housing market has taken quite a hit in the past few years of limited economic turnaround. You probably keep hearing the financial woes and burdens that current and potential homeowners are facing, and as a result the rate of foreclosures, short sells and phenomenal realty deprecation has skyrocketed. As an experienced realtor handling the valuable real estate in New Jersey, Patricia Romano a RE/MAX At Barnegat Bay agent is offering NYC sellers and purchasers of NJ properties her positive perspective on today’s real estate.
Financial means are a must to purchase and then maintain a property. When a financial investment is made in a home, tangible assets are obtained. With the market down, mortgage rates are at record lows offering competitive rates on homes and properties. If you have a substantial amount of savings and are interested in making an investment, consider purchasing a property at a low rate. As you invest in your property, your assets will rise. Inquire about properties that have the potential to regain value and obtain them while the rates are low as the market’s value is predicted to begin a climb.
This eventual climb is another factor that makes purchasing a property in the down market a wise decision. As the condition increases as does the difficulty in qualifying for a mortgage. It is the ultimate goal of financial lenders to limit the amount of money being loaned. To guarantee paybacks, lenders will be more cautious on who receives funding and at what rate. In a poor market, lenders are approving mortgages to a wide array of financial statuses just to move properties, but with a competitive real estate market, the mortgage process will become more selective. The government’s potential switch to private lenders, and the possible disappearance of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will also require lenders to be more selective with mortgagers.
Now is the time to invest in a property, at low costs. Gain tangible assets in the real estate market by taking advantage of the accessibility of properties and incredible rates. For the best advice on New York real estate, turn to Patricia Romano of RE/MAX At Barnegat Bay.
