Homebuyers need to act now

CHICAGO – Feb. 4, 2015 – Homebuyers need to move fast if they want to spend less, according to Jonathan Smoke, chief economist at realtor.com.

“Delayed purchases will only result in higher monthly mortgage payments as prices and rates rise,” Smoke writes. Realtor.com forecasts that affordability may decline as much as 10 percent over the year.

The Federal Reserve continues to remind the financial markets that it plans to raise its target federal funds rate this year, which will cause mortgage rates to rise. Many economists predict that 30-year fixed-rate mortgages will average near 5 percent by the end of the year.

For now, mortgage rates are near historical lows for homebuyers and homeowners. Freddie Mac reported last week that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.66 percent (last year at this time it averaged 4.32 percent), and 15-year fixed-rate mortgages averaged 2.98 percent (a year ago, it averaged 3.40 percent).

“Right now, the Fed is using the word ‘patient’ to describe its approach to picking the time to raise the target rate,” Smoke notes. “However, when the Fed ‘loses patience,’ rates will go up at least 20 to 40 basis points in anticipation of the target rate officially going up. … So, buyers beware: The clock on these low mortgage rates may be ticking.”

17.25 Acres in Hillsborough County Florida For Sale

Screenshot_2015-01-19-10-34-23[1]17.25 Acres with a well maintained home, is situated off Lutz Lake Fern RD in Odessa. Property was used as a former wholesale plant nursery so it is totally surrounded my beautiful lush landscaping looking out from the 2500 sq. ft. screen enclosed pool area. The A/C and roof, were both replaced in 2004. There are solar panels that were removed when the new roof was replaced, however they were not reinstalled but the sellers are quite sure they are still functional. A nice feature to the kitchen is the corean counter tops, with very nice Florida white cabinets that pull out and provide a lot of storage. All A rated schools, and very conveniently located less than 2 miles from the Suncoast/Veterans Expressway! This entire 17.25 Acres lends itself to many uses allowed in the current ASC1 zoning and backs up to the Stillwater Subdivision.
