If you’re on the fence about purchasing a home, here’s an important piece of advice: buying a home sooner rather than later could save you money. This is because three things can happen while you’re waiting to buy:
Mortgage rates can increase
Home prices can increase
You’ll delay building equity in your new home
Let’s look at just the impact of mortgage rates alone. Here’s an example of how much a one percentage point increase in your mortgage rate might affect the cost of financing a $350,000 home with a 20% down payment loan1:
3.000% | 3.093% APR2
4.000% | 4.099% APR2
As you can see, that difference in rate could mean paying more than $18,000 more over the course of ten years!
Mortgage rates are stillnear historic lows, but there’s no knowing how long they will last. The only way to ensure you can take advantage of these low rates is to lock in a mortgage while they’re still available.
