Don’t Forget to Budget for Closing Costs

When buying a home, it’s important to have a budget and make sure you plan ahead for certain homebuying expenses. Saving for a down payment is the main cost that comes to mind for many, but budgeting for the closing costs required to get a mortgage is just as important.

According to Trulia, “When you close on a home, a number of fees are due. They typically range from 2% to 5% of the total cost of the home, and can include title insurance, origination fees, underwriting fees, document preparation fees, and more.” For example, for someone buying a $300,000 home, they could potentially have between $6,000 and $15,000 in closing fees. If you’re in the market for a home above this price range, your closing costs could be greater. As mentioned, closing costs are typically between 2% and 5% of your purchase purchase.

There are of course costs associated with buying a home; I will say it loud and clear, there is no way to purchase a home today without paying something out of pocket. Your first charges involve good faith deposits, home inspections, and appraisals. If you can clear all of those hurdles than there are down payments and closing costs. A home buyer today must have the liquid funds to be able to make their home purchase a reality; if in doubt about costs, ask your agent of lender what your estimate costs of purchasing a home at a certain price will be. When you are ready to buy a home give David Hittle with United Real Estate Louisville a call 502-489-1135.

Americans See Real Estate as a Better Investment Than Stocks or Gold

In an article on the current real estate market, Gallup reports, “Gallup usually finds that Americans regard real estate as the best long-term investment among several options -- seeing it as superior to stocks, gold, savings accounts and bonds. This year, 41% choose real estate as the best investment, up from 35% a year ago, with stocks a distant second.” The article goes on to say, “The 41% choosing real estate is the highest selecting any of the five investment options in the 11 years Gallup has asked this question.”

Some question American confidence in real estate as a good long-term investment right now. They fear that the build-up in home values may be mirroring what happened right before the housing crash a little more than a decade ago.

Dave Ramsey agrees with the sentiment in the Gallup Poll. He says in his book “The Total Money Makeover,” that gold is a bad investment because on average it has only increased 4% in value; while good mutual funds have been showing a 10%+ increase in value. Dave also likes real estate as an investment; he states that he personally owns “hundreds of millions of dollars” in Real Estate. So, if it is good enough for financial guru it is good enough for me!

Sellers Are Ready To Enter the Housing Market

One of the biggest questions in real estate today is, “When will sellers return to the housing market?” An ongoing shortage of home supply has created a hyper-competitive environment for hopeful buyers, leading to the ultimate sellers’ market. However, as the economy continues to improve and more people get vaccinated, more sellers may finally be in sight.

The Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI) by Fannie Mae recently noted the percentage of consumer respondents who say it’s a good time to sell a home increased from 61% to 67%. Doug Duncan, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist at Fannie Mae, indicates, “Consumer positivity regarding home-selling conditions nearly matched its all-time high.”

Should I Move or Refinance?

The level of equity homeowners have is at an all-time high. According to the U.S. Census, over 38% of owner-occupied homes are owned free and clear, meaning they don’t have a mortgage. Those with a mortgage are seeing their equity skyrocket too. Every time real estate values increase, homeowners get a dollar-for-dollar gain in their home equity.

This surge in equity has given most homeowners the opportunity to use that equity in one of two ways:

>>Refinance to cash out some of the equity or lower their current payment

An abundance of equity and record-low mortgage rates can make refinancing a home very easy. Some homeowners choose to refinance so they can lower their payment. Others convert a portion of the equity to cash while keeping their monthly payment the same.

It is common that if you plan to stay in your home for a few years (3 to 5) and can save at least 1% on your current interest rate it maybe a smart idea to refinance. However, before you sign anything or do anything, find out exactly what your costs will be and how much you will actually save! Some refinances have little to no costs, others have high costs that may take you months to actually realize a difference. Be prepared and ask all the questions you have, they are going to become your new lender, so treat them like it! Whether you are looking to refinance or sell your house, David Hittle with United Real Estate Louisville is the guy to call he can help guide you on all the Real Estate paths and help you understand your options 502-489-1135!
