Home Affordability at Historical Highs

by Alan Daniels

Colorado Springs and surrounding areas have seen an interesting dynamic form on Home Affordability.  Home Affordability is at historically favorable levels for buying a home while at extremely unfavorable levels for renting a home.  The years in the market downturn show that home affordability was off the charts when there were more distressed properties selling between 2009 and 2016.  The market is still showing that home affordability is at high levels in the current market as detailed in the following chart (the higher the graph the more affordable homes are).

Mortgage Payments are at historical lows when looking back.  Note that 2012 is skewed due to the number of distressed sales at the time.

Colorado Springs Homes For Sale - Buyers Mortgage Payments

Conclusion:

  • If you are in the market to buy a home in the near future be sure to act while the Home Affordability Index is so favorable.

  • If you are renting, you are most likely seeing a rent increase of 5+% annually and paying hundreds of dollars over what a mortgage would be.

  • Contact your Colorado Springs Real Estate Agent to help you expand on this along with your options whether short or long term.

Low Interest Rates Make Huge Difference on Your Purchasing Power

by Alan Daniels

Interest rates for a 30 year fixed rate mortgage are currently around 3.92% according to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey which is still near record lows when comparing to the last 50-60 years.  Your purchasing power and the amount of home you can afford is greatly impacted by the interest rate you secure when buying a home so make sure to plan out your 2018 plans in a winning way.  

Purchase Power Defined - The amount of home you can afford to buy for the budget you have available to spend.  The price of house you can afford decreases as rates increase.  Note:  The same applies as housing prices go up.

The graphic below shows what impact rising interest rates would have if you planned to purchase a home within the national median price range, and planned to keep your principal and interest payments between $1,850-$1,900 a month.

Colorado Springs Homes For Sale - Buying PowerWith each .25 percent increase in interest rate, the value of the home you can afford decreases by 2.5% (this example shows $10,000). Experts predict that mortgage rates will be closer to 5% by this time next year.

Home Appreciation Factor - Homes locally could increase in value by around 6% in 2018.  So in this example your dream home of $400,000 could turn into $424,000 by year end pushing your purchase power even further down.

Conclusion:

Make sure you schedule a meeting with your Colorado Springs Realtor to better advise you on your plans and what is best for your situation no matter how far out your home buying plans are.​​
