2015 Housing Market Predictions

Hey folks, this is great news, I am very happy to see that home values and home sales are trending upwards, but not too fast!  Here's the 2015 predictions from Freddie Mac.

Outlook Highlights

Expect to see interest rates climb throughout 2015, with yields on the 10-year Treasury averaging about 2.9 percentage points, up from about 2.6 percentage points in 2014, and rates on the 30-year fixed mortgage gradually climbing, averaging 4.6 percent and rising to 5.0 percent by the end of next year.

Check Your Curb Appeal

Sometimes the idea of getting your home ready to sell can seem daunting, and you might be tempted to sell it “as is” instead. Adding a little curb appeal, however, will help your home sell faster and for more money. There are many improvements that add that visible first impression value without taking weeks of labor, or breaking the bank.

 We can discuss specific ideas with you when we inspect your home, but here are some ideas to freshen up your home’s exterior that you can complete on your own for less than a hundred dollars, on a weekend:

Start With the Front Door

Whatever your tradition, a bright, freshly painted front door gives a sense of welcome and vitality to your home. So, make sure your front door is clear of grime and clutter, and give it a fresh coat of a deeply hued paint that blends or contrasts with the rest of the exterior.
