Window Of Opportunity: Home Buying May Not Get Any Cheaper

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Tuesday, June 12th, 2012 at 10:23am.

Are you in the market for a new home in Breckenridge? Now is the time to buy real estate in a world-class destination. Breckenridge Ski Resort just finished its 50th season and our historic, charming mountain town has been bustling for more than 150 years. As a top-visited ski destination, Breckenridge continues to welcome guests from around the country and the globe. Why not call Breckenridge your home too? 

Some experts are predicting this is the last year bargain hunters can take advantage of low home pricing. According to a recent CNN Money article, pricing is down 34% at a national level, but experts are saying it won’t stay this way for long. A decline in foreclosures and continued job growth will help bolster the economy further, and will ultimately begin to drive up home prices. Low mortgage rates won’t stay this way forever either – as the economy recovers, rates will increase. The housing market may begin to turn if home prices flatten out by the third quarter of this year, and could start climbing in 2013. The window of opportunity is open now. This is the summer to buy real estate. 

Pricing has stabilized in Breckenridge with sales trending upward last year. A low foreclosure rate has set our market apart from the region and nation. Inventory is down, thus creating more demand for the homes currently for sale. Mortgage rates have again dropped and couldn’t be better. It is the perfect buying climate.
