The Cost of a Home vs. Price



Many Real Estate Market Experts often talk about the difference between a home’s COST and PRICE.   Sellers view this question differently than buyers as sellers are most concerned about ‘short term price’ and where home values are headed over the next few months.  Buyers on the other hand should not be concerned about price but instead about the ‘long term cost’ of the home.

Let us examine why.

A nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts, investment & market strategists have recently projected that home values would appreciate by approximately 6% until the end of 2018.

The, Fannie Mae most recent August 2017 housing forecast report predicts that the 30 year fixed mortgage rate will be less than 4.2% by the end of next year.

What Does This Mean to a Buyer?

Here is a simple demonstration of what impact these projected changes would have on the mortgage payment of a home selling for approximately $250,000 today:
