Have I missed the boat?

If you have been considering purchasing a home, you have probably been wondering, when is the perfect time to buy?  Has the market reached the bottom yet?  Will interest rates rise?  Have I missed the boat?  Well, NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT!

According to the real estate site Trulia.com, median home prices, price per square foot, and average listing prices have been steadily increasing over the last few months. Also, the average days on the market for listed homes has been decreasing to less than 65 days. All of these indicators point to a housing recovery.

In addition to this encouraging data concerning home prices, interest rates are still at 40 year lows.  However, the Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Survey® Rate has risen for the third consecutive week, according to World Property Channel (WPC). Even though these rates are at historic lows, the trend upwards not only indicates a heating up of the Real Estate market, but a decrease in the amount of home that the average buyer can afford.
