Is now a great time to buy a house in Chandler Arizona
Is now a great time to buy a house in Chandler Arizona? This is a question that I have heard in my last three buyers consultations. Most of my clients have been bombarded with never ending bad real estate market news from the press. They constantly hear about issues like prices continue to fall or a huge looming shadow inventory that may saturate the market with foreclosures. Hearing these challenges makes it a little difficult to explain that I think today is an incredible time to buy a home in Chandler Arizona. And here are a few reasons why I think that.
· * Interest rates are at an all-time low. Below is a historical charts from Freddie Mac of the history of interest rates. As you can see rates have not hovered around 4% in a long time. Not taking advantage of these low rates seems a bit risky to me. At some point they will start to rise. To see a larger version of the chart please click on the picture.
· * National News can skew opinion. In my opinion Real Estate is a local game. Here in Chandler Arizona currently the Inventory has dropped dramatically in the last 3 or 4 months. Currently there are multiple offers on many homes and the inventory of Short Sales seems to be on the rise. Below is another chart taking a snap shot of the Chandler Arizona Real Estate Market.
· I am waiting till the market hits bottom. Attached below is a Chart I pulled from the Cromford Report. As you can see on this chart prices per sq ft have stayed pretty level the last 12 months. I am not making the suggesting that prices are going to skyrocket up anytime soon but I don’t think we will see another 30% decline either.
· *You can buy cheaper than rent in some areas. With a high demand for quality rental properties we have started to see a slight rise in rental rates. Higher rents along with historically low home prices and interest rates equal an opportunity for folks to pay less to own than rent.
