4 Reasons Home Buyers Should Remain Hopeful in a Seller’s Market

A Housing Bubble is Unlikely

According to the Case-Shiller Index home prices have been gradually rising for the past 6 years. Although home prices rose at a rate higher than average in 2016 and 2017, prices did not rise THAT drastically. Home prices have not rose drastically like the prices in the 1970’s and in 2000's.

Mortgage Interest Rates Aren’t Rising that Quickly

As the Federal Reserve continues to tighten its monetary policy, mortgage rates will slowly continue to increase. However, this should not discourage prospective buyers. Interest rates have remained stable since 2011, and experts aren’t predicting a drastic change.
