Interest Rates Are Rising! What Does That Mean For You?

As you may have heard, the Federal Reserve may start reversing its pandemic stimulus in November and interest rates will most likely rise.
But what does this mean for you if you’re looking to buy or sell in South Florida.

Let’s start with some basics:

The current housing boom will most likely flatten in 2022 when interest rates rise. Note the word flatten. Prices will not
go down, there is simply too much demand. We are NOT in a real estate bubble; a bubble is rising prices that aren’t
justified by fundamental economic factors such as demand. That is NOT what we are experiencing today.

In South Florida, with our warm climate, our beautiful coastline, and tax benefits, more and more people are moving
here every day. Many of those individuals have realized they can work from home and are no longer tethered to a
particular city.

The latest stats from snntv.com indicate that nearly 1000 people move here every day and many are coming from
northern states . ...

Best Place to Retire in 2021? You Guessed It - Florida!

Florida has an historic reputation of being a perfect place for retirement. Hundreds of thousands of people have moved to Florida to retire in this subtropical paradise, especially from Northeastern states like New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey. But the climate isn't the only thing bringing flocks of retirees to FL. In a recent study by WalletHub, Florida was ranked the #1 state to retire in based on a comparison of  all 50 states across 45 key indicators that measured affordability, health-care systems, and overall quality of life.

You don't need an in depth analysis to see why Florida has remained the most popular retirement destination in the country. For starters, it's nicknamed "The Sunshine State". Florida residents experience beautiful weather year-round with winter temperatures around 50° Fahrenheit and over 230 days of sunshine compared to the national average of 205, that's almost an extra month of sunny days!

2 Reasons Why You Can't Afford to Wait to Buy

If you're a buyer looking for a home in South Florida, don't wait. Inventory is low with no sign of improvement. Experts say that sales will continue to increase as much as 21.5% by December 2021. If you're a buyer, that means your competition isn't going to go away.
If you're considering waiting until the market cools, all signs say: No! The market isn't going to cool; in fact, it's going to continue strong. Buyers who are financially able to buy now, should. 

Here are two reasons why you can't afford to wait:
1. Home values are expected to rise by 10.5% by the end of the year.
Let's say you buy a house today valued at $300,000. Same time next year, that house may be worth $331,500 or more!
2. Today's mortgage rates are low which means you can afford more.

Rates are starting to rise - which means the sooner you buy, the more likely you are to take advantage of lower rates. Lower rates means you can afford more of a home.  For example, Zillow reports that today&rsq ...
