Rates Are Still LowIf you were watching rates in 2019, you know that they were amazing. The good news is that rates are continuing to stay around the same low levels. There is no way to really predict exactly what the rates will do throughout the year, the only thing you can be sure of is what they are today and what you do about it.
The Home Search Could Be HardRealtor.com is predicting that in 2020, home inventory could reach a historic low as a steady flow of demand, especially for entry-level homes. If you’ve been considering purchasing a home at the Lake, NOW is the time to get started. Start by visiting our website at www.yourlakeloan.com and applying for your pre-approval, then find your real estate agent and start looking for your dream property. If there is going to be a shortage of homes and condominiums on the market this year, getting started early could be a huge advantage.
Get PreparedThe first and best thing you can do is to start getting prepared. This can include tracking your spending, saving up for the down payment, improving/maintaining your credit score, and getting pre-approved with Team Lasson. Start gathering documents like your tax returns, paychecks stubs, bank and asset statements, and W-2 information.
