Should You Worry About Market Fluctuations?

 

You turn on the television and watch a news story about housing prices going down. 


It’s a little like being on a roller-coaster ride!

Unfortunately, the ride isn’t much fun if you’re thinking of buying or selling a home. In fact, it can be very confusing and frustrating. You just don’t know if “now” is the right time to make a move.

  In reality, the housing market has been fluctuating for decades. Yet, people sell their homes every day for good prices, and just as many people get into their next dream home affordably.

When you hear news of market fluctuations, there are two important things to consider.

First, a lot of media information about the housing market is national, or at least regional. If the housing market is trending up or down nationally, remember that it doesn’t necessarily mean that your LOCAL market is doing the same. In fact, it’s entirely possible for housing prices to be rising in your neighborhood, while they are falling nationally, and vice versa.

Second, if you’re selling your current property while buying another home, then the net effect of market fluctuations may cancel out. Say, for example, that the local market is on the upswing. You’ll probably be able to sell your current home for a good price. However, the home you purchase will likely also be priced to reflect the upswing. The same holds true when the market is down.

All that being said, there are some circumstances in which you need to consider market fluctuations when deciding whether or not to make a move. Call today for more information.

您应该担心市场波动吗?

您打开电视并看到有关房价下跌的新闻报道。然后,您又再读到有关房地产市场的文章。跌宕起伏,有点像坐过山车!

不幸的是,如果您打算购买或出售房屋,这种起伏的乐趣并不大。实际上,这可能令人非常困惑和沮丧。您不知道现在是否是正确的时机。实际上,房地产市场几十年来一直在波动。然而,人们每天都以高价卖出自己的房屋,就像许多人都能负担得起下一个梦想中的家一样。当您听到有关市场波动的消息时,有两点需要考虑。

首先,有关住房市场的许多媒体信息是全国性的,至少是区域性的。如果房地市场在全国范围内呈上升或下降趋势,请记住,这不一定意味着您所在的本地市场也是这样。实际上,在全国范围内房价下跌的同时,您所在社区的房价也有可能上涨,反之亦然。

其次,如果您在购买另一套房子的同时出售当前房地产,那么市场波动的净影响可能会抵消。例如,说本地市场正在上升。您可能可以以合理的价格出售当前房屋。但是,您购买的房屋也可能会定价以反映价格上涨。市场下跌时也是如此。综上所述,在某些情况下,您需要决定是否采取行动时要考虑市场波动。
