The 2022 & 2023 Real Estate Market has certainly been an interesting one to say the least!

With opportunities all around us, I thought to prudently address a question regularly and rightfully asked: Is it a good time to buy with increased interest rates?

Good question so let's dig in for clarity...

What is the difference between a Home valued at $550,000 in a low interest rate market (2%) selling for $750,000 (because low interest rate markets breed competition and paying over asking) and a Home valued at $750,000 in a high interest rate market (5%) selling for $550,000 (because high interest rate markets suppress competition and paying over asking)?

Here’s what that looks like:

Purchase Price
  • $750,000

Down Payment
  • $25,000 (5% up to $500,000)
  • $25,000 (10% on the remaining balance of $250,000)
  • = $50,000

Mortgage
  • $700,000 (purchase price minus downpayment)
  • 25 year term
  • 2% interest rate
  • = $2,966.98/month

Purchase Price
  • $550,000

Down Payment
  • $25,000 (5% up to $500,000)
  • $5,000 (10% on the remaining balance of $50,000)
  • = $30,000

Mortgage
  • $520,000 (purchase price minus downpayment)
  • 25 year term
  • 5% rate
  • = $3,039.87

It’s the same money +/- just applied differently.

That being said, there’s no cost savings for a buyer, however - and this is a big however - the power a buyer has in a market like today is high inventory and negotiating strength.

I often say “while others are waiting for the crash - others are making the cash”. Decide accordingly :)
