Today's buyers save well into the future
In today’s economy, many factors influence the decision to buy a home – job status, financial ability, and family considerations among them. But one of the main reasons to consider becoming a homeowner in the current market is the affordability factor, which will benefit today’s buyers for many years to come. Some experts say that "NOW" is the best time to buy a home in our history due to low interest rates coupled with the over supply of housing inventory.
To put this into perspective, a buyer who purchased a median-priced home five years ago with an FHA mortgage and a 3 percent downpayment would have a monthly mortgage payment of $1,650.00. With today’s interest rates and median home prices, that same buyer would be paying $1,150 per month;; that’s a $500 savings every month, and a savings of $6,000 per year.
