If you’re planning to buy a home this year, one of the first steps on your journey is getting pre-approved. Especially in today’s market when mortgage rates are higher than they were just a few months ago, getting a mortgage pre-approval can be a game changer. Here’s why.

To better understand why pre-approval is key, it’s important to know what pre-approval is. The Mortgage Reports explains it like this:

“When you’re ready to take the leap into homeownership, your first step is mortgage preapproval. . . . A mortgage preapproval is when a lender determines you’re qualified for a home loan. Your preapproval letter shows the maximum loan amount you’re approved for (your home buying budget), as well as the specific interest rate and loan term you can expect.”

The model home at Haven at Stanley showcases the Quinn floor plan, a two-story townhome with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms.

Buying a home can Help You Beat Inflation 08/09/2022
During periods of inflation, buying a home can offer a way to stabilize housing costs for decades to come.Today’s housing market looks a lot different than it did when the year started, with buyers and sellers adjusting to the twin realities of high inflation and spiking mortgage interest rates.

There are signs the tide has turned. Zillow research found that ballooning mortgage costs and rising home prices have begun to cool buyer demand for homes. As a result, more sellers are cutting their prices and homes are taking longer to sell. The number of homes buyers can choose from is rising quickly from the historic lows of February.

Whether current conditions make it a good time for you to buy or sell depends on your personal circumstances. But to help you answer that question and others, we turned to Zillow senior economist Jeff Tucker, who offers some big-picture takeaways that can help you weigh your choices as you move forward.

If you need to move for a job or changing family needs or just to start a new chapter, ask yourself if you can afford the home you’re looking at with today’s mortgage rates and if you will love living there for several years,’’ Tucker says. “Those are the most important things to establish. In many ways, the movement of prices and interest rates in the years ahead will be irrelevant if you’re happy in your home.”

Do Not Just Refinance--Tips from Zillow 07/28/2022
The ideal time to refinance is based on your own circumstances. A good time to refinance is when you can qualify for a low enough interest rate to save money over the life of your loan, even after the cost of refinancing. If you can reduce your interest rate by a half of one percent or more, then it is likely worth significant savings if you plan to keep your home. Another good time to refinance is when you’ve amassed enough equity to drop PMI, saving you cash each month.

A rate-and-term refinance allows you to take out a new loan with a different interest rate and term, but for the same total loan amount.

A cash-out refinance allows you to withdraw cash from the total equity in your home by increasing the loan amount for your new loan. Monthly payments typically increase with a cash-out refinance.

A cash-in refinance allows you to pay a lump sum toward home equity, reducing the remaining loan amount. Cash-in refinances often entail borrowers contributing tens of thousands of dollars to lower the amount they will borrow under the new loan.
Refinance and Get Thousands Back 07/21/2022
Zillow offers 4 Reasons to Refinance Your Mortgage

1. Get a lower interest rate. This can save you thousands over the life of the loan,

2. Switch your mortgage type. Switch from a 30-year fixed rate to a 15-year fixed rate to take advantage of a lower interest rate and pay off your mortgage faster.

3.Get Money for Home Improvements.

4.Build Equity Faster.Depending on your current interest rate, you may be able to maintain or reduce your monthly payment while paying the loan down faster.

The housing market is still hot for sellers. This is an opportune time to use your new found equity to move up to the active-adult community that you will love! If you own a home, your net worth likely just got a big boost thanks to rising home equity. Equity is the current value of your home minus what you owe on the loan. And today, based on recent home price appreciation, you’re building that equity far faster than you may expect – here’s how it works.

Because there’s an ongoing imbalance between the number of homes available for sale and the number of buyers looking to make a purchase, home prices are on the rise. That means your home is worth more in today’s market because it’s in high demand. Basically, because your home value has likely climbed so much, your equity has increased too. According to the latest Homeowner Equity Insights from CoreLogic, the average homeowner’s equity has grown by $64,000 over the last 12 months. Read full article on KeepingCurrentMatters.com.

MarketNsight Announces Housing Boom is Not Over 06/15/2022
ATLANTA - MarketNsight released May numbers for Atlanta and the Southeast at MarketWatch Atlanta. Total pending sales went negative year over year in April but improved in May, and Atlanta was only down 2%. Most shockingly, home closings at $300,000 and above are up 25% in May year over year.

There is currently 0.6 months of supply at $300,000 and below in metro Atlanta. This is not a new trend, there was very little supply in 2021 at this price point as well. High-end homes took a massive hit when the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic started, but price points above $300,000 have more than recovered. Home sales have not been deterred by the stock market or rising interest rates. “If we had inventory available under $300,000, we would be up huge,” Hunt said.

MarketNsight data shows that the war on homes at $300,000 and below is not unique to Atlanta. There are massive shortages at this price point in Augusta, Georgia; Dallas, Texas; Nashville, Tennessee; Raleigh, North Carolina and Jacksonville, Florida as well. “This is going on everywhere,” Hunt said. “It is effectively the extinction of the entry-level home.”

Hunt’s forecast for the rest of 2022: “Zero inventory is a game-changer. Even if rates continue to rise, there is not enough inventory to cause a crash. “Millennials are a huge demographic group. This demand pressure is not going away. Especially combined with the fact that Boomers are sitting on their homes when they should be selling to take advantage of skyrocketing prices. They don’t want to risk being homeless or trading in their 3% mortgage for one that is 5%. “We are set up for moderate sustainable growth based on job growth and household/population growth. New home construction cannot even begin to touch the 89,000-inventory deficit in Atlanta.”

Purchasing a New Home is Your Hedge Against Inflation 05/23/2022
If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a home this year, you’re probably wondering if you should continue down that path or if it makes more sense to wait. While the answer depends on your situation, here’s how homeownership can help you combat the rising costs that come with inflation.

Buying a home allows you to stabilize what’s typically your biggest monthly expense: your housing cost. If you get a fixed-rate mortgage on your home, you lock in your monthly payment for the duration of your loan, often 15 to 30 years.

While it’s true rising mortgage rates and home prices mean buying a house today costs more than it did a year ago, you still have an opportunity to set yourself up for a long-term win. Buying now lets you lock in at today’s rates and prices before both climb higher. Find out more at KeepingCurrentMatters.com.

Renaissance at South Park will be opening up home sites for new homes to be closed in 2023 in a few weeks. Plan ahead to be sure you have your dream home at this very popular new home community. Consider wonderful home plans like the Bradberry, Crawford, Crestford, Crestwood and Redford home plans to see which one is perfect for your new home.

CANTON - Life events can have a major impact on what you need from your home, and retirement is one of the biggest changes many of us face. This period of your life can mean doing more of the things you enjoy, like traveling, visiting with loved ones, or taking on new hobbies. But what does that mean for your home?

If you’re looking for ways to focus more on the important things in your life, the answer could be downsizing. A recent article from The Balance talks about why it could be a great option, saying: Read full article on KeepingCurrentMatters.com. “There are many reasons to buy a smaller home—or to downsize from your present home—but sometimes, the idea that “less is more” is what propels homeowners to buy a smaller home.”

According to the latest Homeowner Equity Insights report from CoreLogic, the average homeowner gained about $55,300 in equity over the past 12 months. Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic, explains how important price appreciation and equity gains are for existing homeowners: “Home prices rose 18% during 2021 in the CoreLogic Home Price Index, the largest annual gain recorded in its 45-year history, generating a big increase in home equity wealth, . . . For low- and moderate-income homeowners, home equity has historically been a major source of wealth.”

Today, the majority of consumers, 75 percent, say it’s a good time to sell a house. Now is definitely the time to sell according to KeepingCurrentMatters.com.

The higher "good time to sell"l sentiment has to do with today’s market conditions, specifically low housing supply and high buyer demand.

Here are three key concepts about homeownership you should understand before you get started:

Saving for a down payment is sometimes viewed as one of the biggest obstacles for homebuyers, but that doesn’t have to be the case. As Freddie Mac says: “The most damaging down payment myth—since it stops the homebuying process before it can start—is the belief that 20% is necessary.

Some young homebuyers don’t feel they can afford a home that suits their growing needs and have decided to continue renting instead. That means they’ll miss out on some of the long-term benefits of owning a home.

Finally, with mortgage rates starting to rise along with home prices appreciating, putting off buying a home now could cost you much more later.

Homeowner Associations Trend Popular with Georgia Homebuyers 06/26/2021
ATLANTA - A notable housing trend resulting from strong home sales in 2020 and 2021, is a preference by American homebuyers for community associations, also known as condominium and homeowners associations (HOA). According to the Foundation for Community Association Research, the number of new condominium and HOAs nationwide is expected to increase by 4,500 this year, and Beacon Management Services sees this same trend in Georgia.

Community associations represent nearly 25% of U.S. housing stock serving more than 73 million Americans. They are popular housing choices for buyers seeking proximity to city centers, public transportation and schools. These planned communities often provide residents the benefit of shared amenities.

“One of the biggest reasons residents prefer homes in communities with HOAs is because they are proven to stabilize home values,” Lisa Simmons, President of Beacon Management Services, said. “Homeowners usually have to get permission to make structural changes to their property, and the HOA maintains the aesthetic consistency and appeal of the neighborhood.” Associations also typically have rules concerning landscaping, trash placement, decorations and vehicle parking. These rules have one ultimate goal — to make the community look nice and, therefore, keep property values high. Protecting property values is why HOA neighborhoods are so desirable and homes in them often sell for more than homes in non-HOA communities.

Metro Atlanta’s residential growth knows no boundaries as home builders are going further afield to find affordable land options. According to MarketNsight Founder and Principal John Hunt, historically low home inventory will take 10 years to reach normal levels as the market is short 92,000 homes on an annualized basis.
Affordable Homes at Princeton Ridge 06/23/2021
LITHONIA - Without a doubt, housing is still affordable. According to this article in KeepingCurrentMatters.com, buying a home is still a good investment. The real estate market is soaring today. Residential home values are rising, and that’s a big win for homeowners. In 2020, there was a double-digit increase in home values – a trend that’s expected to head toward similar levels this year.

However, skyrocketing prices are causing some to start questioning affordability in the current housing market. The findings show the historical averages of the national payment to income ratio, which they define as “the share of the median income needed to make the monthly payments on the median-priced home.” Their study reveals:

The average over the last 25 years was 23.6%
The average over the last 5 years was 20.1%
The average today stands at 20.5%
