5 reasons now’s a great time to buy a new home in Sweetwater
From low interest rates to affordable new choices, 2019 is shaping up to be a great year to buy a new home. Here are 5 reasons to discover why Sweetwater has your dream home, whether it’s an affordable new plan priced from the $300,000s, or the ultimate dream home in a gated enclave.
Interest rates remain low. Mortgage interest rates may vary slightly from day to day, but the general trend is downward. In early April, rates were holding near a 14-month low. The national average for 30-year mortgage rates was just slightly above 4% at the beginning of April. Low interest rates translate to lower monthly payments and the ability to qualify for a larger home.
Affordability is excellent. Homebuyers are enjoying the best affordability since the first quarter of 2018, according to the latest Burns Affordability Index from John Burns Real Estate Consulting. Burns credits a trifecta of lower mortgage rates, stable home prices and growing incomes for today’s excellent affordability.
Austin is a strong market. Austin is one of the strongest and healthiest real estate markets in the nation. Check out our recent blog for insights from some of the area’s leading real estate experts.
