Study after study shows that no matter what generation Americans belong to, the vast majority believe that homeownership is an important part of their American Dream. The benefits of homeownership can be broken into two main categories: financial and non-financial (often referred to as emotional or social reasons.) . For Americans approaching retirement age, one of the greatest benefits to homeownership is the added net worth they have been able to achieve simply by paying their mortgage! . The Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University focused on homeowners and renters over the age of 65. Their study revealed that the difference in net worth between homeowners and renters at this age group was actually 47.5 times greater, with nearly half their net worth coming from home equity! . Homeowners over the age of 65 are much more financially prepared for retirement and often own their homes outright if they were fortunate enough to purchase their homes before the age of 36. Their 30 years of mortgage payments have paid off as they gained equity through their monthly payments and as home values appreciated. . It is no surprise that lifelong renters have had a hard time accruing net worth as the latest Census report shows that the Median Asking Rent has been climbing consistently over the last 30 years. . Bottom Line: . Your monthly mortgage payment is a form of ‘forced savings’ building your net worth with every payment! . . . . . #bellinghamrealestate #homebuyers #home #dreamhome #housing #realestatemarket #interestrateupdate #homeloan #justlisted #forsale #newhome #househunting #properties #bellinghamlistings #homeforsale #investmentbellingham #investment #mortgage #homesforsale #thereisnoplacelikehome #bellinghamwa #bellingham #bellinghamwashington #pnw #whatcomcounty #lovewhereyoulive #remax #remaxhustle #realtorlife #realtor

It is common knowledge that a great number of homes 🏡 sell during the🌸 spring 🌸 buying season. For that reason, many homeowners hold off putting their homes on the market until then. The question is whether or not that is a good strategy this year. . The other listings that come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller. Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market during this season in comparison to the rest of the year? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently revealed the months during which most people listed their homes for sale in 2018. . The three months in the second quarter of the year are consistently the most popular months for sellers to list their homes on the market. Last year, the number of homes available for sale in January was 1,520,000. That number spiked to 1,870,000 by May! . What does this mean to you? . With the national job situation improving and mortgage interest rates projected to rise later in the year, buyers are not waiting until the spring; they are out looking for homes right now. . Bottom Line: . If you are looking to sell this year, waiting until the spring to list your home means you will have the greatest competition amongst buyers. Beat the rush of housing inventory that will enter the market and list your home today! . . . . . #bellinghamrealestate #homebuyers #home #dreamhome #housing #realestatemarket #interestrateupdate #homeloan #justlisted #forsale #newhome #househunting #properties #bellinghamlistings #homeforsale #investmentbellingham #investment #mortgage #homesforsale #thereisnoplacelikehome #bellinghamwa #bellingham #bellinghamwashington #pnw #whatcomcounty #lovewhereyoulive #remax #remaxhustle #realtorlife #realtor
