When Will Be a Good Time to Buy a House?

If you’ve been following the housing market for the last couple of years, you have probably thought about buying a home. The question you probably have is, when will be a good time to buy a house? You should probably ask yourself instead, is it a good time in my life to buy a house?

Buying a home depends on your financial situation, life goals, and readiness to become a homeowner. A few things to consider…

Being financially prepared

Remember that you don’t pay for a purchase price, you pay for a mortgage. Your down payment is an important part of the home buying journey. Luckily, there are many down payment options (other than having 20% down) available today.

In addition to your down payment, you should also have enough saved to cover the closing costs. Typically, 1%-3% of the purchase price.

Your life goals

Putting down roots is a big commitment, and ideally, you would want to live in the home long enough for property values to rise and your equity to exceed the upfront costs you paid. Reasons why you might settle down in an area.
