Now is the Time to Buy | Bozeman Real Estate Market
If you have been considering purchasing a home, you may be curious to know if this is the right time in the market to make your move. The Bozeman area real estate market is fast changing and interest rates are rising. There is a whole slew of things buyers have to face when it comes time to picking the right house. What does that mean for you? Well, that there isn’t a better time to buy than now. Let’s break down the benefits of purchasing a home now…
1. INTEREST RATES ARE RISING
If you haven’t been keeping up with the real estate market, you might be missing out on the data around interest rates. They are going up, and they are going up fast. 5% may not seem like a lot, but can be the difference between hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars on what you are paying out towards your loan on a monthly basis. Would you want to pay an extra $200 towards interest for your loan each month, or would you prefer to pocket that $200? We know the answer to that.
Buying a home now while interest rates are at a low is going to be an advantage, both now, and long term. Take advantage of today’s rates, our current real estate market, and purchase a home that doesn’t cost you extra just because of interests.
2. HOME PRICES ARE INCREASING
Have you been hearing about folks complaining in your subdivision about the price of homes going up? Well those prices are going to continue climbing. A home that is $400,000 now, could go up to $600,000 in 10 years because of real estate market conditions. Also, we are aware that wages are not increasing as steadily as the cost of living. Purchasing a home in today’s real estate market can get you a bigger and better deal on a house than if you were to wait a few years. Especially in hot real estate markets like ours, where prices are virtually guaranteed to sky rocket, making a move now can save you hundreds of thousands.
3. COMPETITION IS GETTING BIGGER
Population growth is a real thing, and with more people, comes more competition for homes. Homes are selling faster, which means a high demand increases home prices. Buying your home now, while the competition isn’t as strong as it could be 5 years from now, helps you get a better deal on the home you want now then if you were to wait it out.

So, in conclusion, the ball is in your court in today’s real estate market. There is not a better time to purchase then now. Avoid the competition and the increase in fees and prices, and take advantage of a market that is still in the buyer’s favor.
