2024 is right around the corner, bringing with it resolutions and new opportunities. We want each year to be better than the last, so what better way to ring in the new year than buying a new home? A warm, welcoming, brand-new home with endless possibilities to create happy memories.

It can be difficult to navigate the constant flux of the real estate market to determine exactly when to buy a home, so we’ve provided you with four reasons why you should buy a happy new home this happy New Year.

1. Ability to start building equity now

Even adjusted for inflation, home values today are multiple times higher than they were 50 years ago. Going hand in hand with this, home prices have increased each decade since too. For homebuyers, this may mean the sooner the better when it comes to purchasing a home. A down payment on a home can likely grow in value faster than money in a savings account. Not to mention this may increase your own net worth – not a landlord’s.

2. Waiting could make prices worse

Waiting for the warmer seasons to come has the potential of seeing higher costs. Parents often wait to move during this time so their kids’ academics aren’t disrupted. This increase of people on the market can influence price and rates.

It’s also uncertain where home prices are headed. They may dip periodically, but historically they always climb. Experts at CoreLogic and housing economics at real estate firms like Zillow forecast that even higher prices are ahead. So if you can afford it, why wait? No one can predict the future, but the age-old advice still rings true – buying a home can be a good investment.

3. If rates drop, competition will rise

If rate costs begin to ease, there will be a flood of demand over the market. As Shark Tank investor and real-estate mogul Barbara Corcoran said in a post on Instagram, it is highly unlikely the days of 2%-3% interest rates are ever coming back. If they drop to somewhere close to 6%, a lot of interested homebuyers are going to be back in the market. Homes may get scooped up and prices may rise again. Now is the time to buy, not then.

So instead of waiting and swimming in a sea of competition tomorrow, dive into the market today.
