Home sales are projected to rise in 2018.  There are many reasons for the positive outlook; demand and low interest rates are only two.  This projection has good news for both sellers and buyers.  And if you are a renter, you may want to set your focus on home ownership. After all, owning a home is one of the biggest ways to plump up your financial portfolio.

Demand for housing has been pushing up.  Buyers are getting pre-approved for their mortgage loans, and sellers are experiencing less competition.  A neutral housing market has a six month housing inventory supply, we are currently at approx. 4.3 month supply.

Historically low interest rates are another factor making home ownership within reach for many.  In addition lower interest rates allow the buyer to look at higher priced homes.  This is because they are borrowing money at a low rate verse a higher rate.

If you are a renter and looking to own a home, the timing is good.  You will want to get a mortgage pre-approval from a bank or loan officer.  This will allow you to know what price range you will be able to qualify for.  In addition, a loan pre-approval will let the sellers know, your offer is solid.

When you own a home you expand your investment portfolio.  A mortgage payment is a form of forced savings.  In addition appreciation of your home is also boosting your money by raising the value of your home. If you don't own a home, you may want to rethink your investment strategy.

So who says home sales are going to rise in 2018?  Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and The Mortgage Bankers Association are all projecting that home sales will increase in 2018.
