While homeownership numbers may be down, Americans continue to believe that owning a home is still a good decision even as mortgage rates bounce up and down. According to the National Association of Realtors 2013 National Housing Pulse Survey, eight in 10 people believe that purchasing a home is a good choice and 68% believe that now is a good time to make a purchase. Since the last survey in 2011, renters who are contemplating a home purchase rose from 25% to 36% while those who stated they prefer to rent fell from 31% to 25%. More than half of the renters surveyed stated that one of their highest priorities is owning a home, up to 51% from 42%.  

We remain towards the lower end of a home value cycle.  This means that most likely home values will increase significantly over the next 5 years.  Even though mortgage rates have ticked up slightly, they remain well below the 10 year average.  This combination leads one to believe that investing in home ownership now is a wise decision.

Have An Awesome Week!
