Do not be fooled by the media or negative thinkers sharing their opinions. Interest rates are at all time lows and they probably are not going to go down. We have already had some jumps in interest rates and thankfully they came back down. I can tell you a young couple just closed on a home in Kimberling City and their rate was 4.5% on 30 year fixed rate.
Values in homes in our area are attractive and yes we still have properties that over priced under the current market conditions. All you need is a good Realtor to help you find the good deals and trust them.
A good agent can provide you comparative sold properties to give you assurance for your decision making. Our goal with the Robbins Team is to have life long clients. We are going to be very careful making recommendations and provide the best information we have.
I just helped a buyer purchase a home at what we felt was a fair market value. The buyer and seller we happy. The home appraised for 8% more then they paid for it and the seller paid their closing costs.
If you are in the market for a home or you are paying rent, you need to talk to a Realtor to see what is available. Don't wait for interest rates to go up!
