Midtown Montgomery Real Estate Market Report for March 2014

Midtown Montgomery Real Estate Market Report for March 2014

The spring buying season looks promising according to BankRate.com. As the weather warms and flowers bloom homes remain affordable and inventories are low, making it a good time to buy.

Here are 5 housing trends you can expect to see this spring:

1. Adjustable rate mortgages are gaining favor.
As rates tick upward, there is a tremendous savings opportunity with an ARM.

2. Homeowners are cashing out with home equity lines.

May homeowners have regained the equity lost in the recession and are taking advantage of new found value in their homes.

3. Mortgage rates will rise...a little!

Mortgage rates will most likely inch up this spring but are not expected to skyrocket. Experts are expecting rates to go higher than 5%.

4. Home prices will increase.

An increase in prices is mostly due to low inventory. Prices are expected to steadily climb through the end of the year.

5. 'Permanent' HAMP rates are expiring.

Homeowners who refinanced with the Home Affordable Modification Program will start to see their rates increase. The 'permanent' rate expires after 5 years.
