Considering Moving up to a New Home in Indianapolis? It's Time to Take the Plunge!

Considering Moving up to a New Home in Indianapolis?  It's Time to Take the Plunge!

It's a fantastic time to consider moving up!  In fact we're surprised more people aren't taking advantage of this "perfect storm" for move-up buyers in the Indianapolis area.  Here are some things to keep in mind about the current market:

diving into waterHomes  for sale that are in excellent condition, show really nice and are priced appropriate for the local Indianapolis market are selling

- With interest rates at a record low - many people can buy significantly more house for the same monthly payment as they could, even just a year or two ago, when rates were say 6%.

On a $300,000 mortgage the payment at 4% the monthly P&I is $1432, at 6% that same mortgage is $1799. That's $367 every month for as long as you own the home! If you're planning on staying put for awhile, the savings can be significant.

- It's necessary to price the home you're selling to reflect the current market - but you're also buying at a discounted price and if you're moving up - you win!  Anything you lose on the sell side, you more than make up on the buy side.

- The rates are being held artificially low right now, but as soon as the economy and housing market shows signs of recovery, rates will start climbing --  right along with the prices.  

- Is new construction an option?  If so, builders are offering some fantastic incentives right now.

Don't be left watching from shore -- the water's great -- take the plunge!

Tonda, I hope your buyers take notice.  These interest rates right now are RIDICULOUS!  I can't imagine ever seeing them come around like this again.  People need to take advantage of it while they still can!

There are some crazy good deals out there right now.  A client I sold a house to several years ago contacted me yesterday saying he was thinking about moving up and wondered how the market was.  as I put together an email to respond, I basically wrote this blog -- so thought why not share the same thoughts here?

I typically have October as my busiest month...not this year.  It seems like the buyers just are still unsure of the economy and won't move off the fence.  Luckily I do a lot of relocation and people are still moving to the Indy area.
