Most of the world has spent more time at home than….well….ever in these past few months. During this global pandemic, many saw the need to shelter in place. For some, it was torture. For others, it was a dream. Either way, all that time in the house likely had you thinking of things you would like to change.
As I called to check on people, I found that some were in full DIY mode changing everything in their homes that could be done without a professional. Others worked on improving their outdoor space to change up the scenery. Then there were those that decided, it’s time to move.
One things for sure, if you’re thinking about moving and you’re in a position to do so, now is the time. Mortgage rates are so low. Lower rates mean more buying power. For those that are fortunate to still be working, have maintained a good credit score, and have some money set aside, it’s the perfect time.
Well what if you’re still working on your credit or still saving for that down payment? You may be surprised to learn that you could be ready to move sooner than you think. A mortgage counselor can go over your credit report and advise you how to most effectively raise your score. Also most jurisdictions offer down payment assistance.
