Mortgage Monday - Go Time!

“Spring is the time of year many people start looking for houses to purchase. What are our needs? Are houses on the market that fits our needs?”

The mortgage industry continues to be as fluid as the stock market in how it performs. Each day international, national, and local news events affect interest rates and loan volume. This volatile environment affects consumer sentiment.

Consumers often buy homes based on how it “feels.” Is the economy doing well? Do people have jobs? Is my community moving forward, or are local policy makers making me feel uncertain?

Spring is the time of year many people start looking for houses to purchase. What are our needs? Are houses on the market that fits our needs? Can we afford those houses? How will moving affect our family?

Uncertainty generates hesitation. Hesitation delays decisions that need to be made. Delayed decisions increase uncertainty. Not making decisions because of questions and fears are decisions that can potentially hinder fulfilling dreams.

One of my most cherished roles is assisting people in deciding the timing of home buying decisions. I am honored to be a part of helping individuals and families in achieving the American Dream of Homeownership.
