Are You Financially Ready to Buy a Home?

Image
This is often one of the biggest questions that buyers find themselves asking as they weigh the options of home ownership. As real estate agents, we’ve calculated the costs and know that in most cases, owning a home can be a much better arrangement for most than sinking funds into a rent cost that doesn’t get you anywhere. Yet, with buying a home comes many new responsibilities like a downpayment, a mortgage, and the upkeep costs. Here are a few ways you can determine whether buying a home is the best financial decision for your family.

With a new month means new local real estate market conditions in El Paso County, Colorado. Check out the market insights of what September looked like and how it may affect you if you are planning on selling or buying a Colorado Springs home.

While inventory is increasing, the average days on the market is still very low at just 26 days, compared to the historically recorded 67 days. Because of the lack of inventory, and steady increase of motivated buyers, homes are still selling quickly. This is great news for the seller who's hoping to move their property quickly.
