This month marks the 241st birthday of the United States, and this year there’s plenty to celebrate. From low mortgage rates to mounting homeowner confidence, the early summer market held strong through June, but what’s on the horizon for July?
Just last month, mortgage applications rose 9% over this time last year, a true testament to the market’s steady gains. For those still unsure about taking the leap to buy, polls show that current homeowners are overwhelmingly confident in their purchase, with 80% deeming now a good time to buy. On the sellers’ side, 71% also advise to strike while the iron is hot and list today. In either case, the market is primed for action and there’s no better time to jumpstart your prospects than July’s mid-summer rush.
