Nationwide media tour conducted Live from Chicago at the REALTORS Leadership Summit
Given the ever-changing housing market, many Americans are questioning whether its a good time to buy or sell a home.
Despite fluctuating mortgage rates and limited housing inventory, there are many reasons to consider making a move in the current market.
In fact, according to the National Association of REALTORS:
The national median home price in June was slightly less than the record high of nearly $414,000 in June of last year. Although existing-home sales saw a 3.3% decrease, home prices have held firm in most parts of the country.
While mortgage rates are significantly higher than last year, they are still considered historically low and have remained relatively steady.
Sales in the second half of the year should be notably better than the first half as job gains continue and more favorable mortgage rates are expected.
Existing-home sales are expected to increase by 15.4% in 2024.
Moreover, homeownership continues to be a catalyst for Americans to build generational wealth.
Over the past decade, the median-priced home in the U.S. gained nearly $200,000 in value, making the typical homeowner 40 times wealthier than if they had not purchased a home or remained a renter.
An agent who is a REALTOR can help you achieve the dream of homeownership and create long-term wealth and financial stability for your family.
