Is it Time to Make a Move?

In recent years, many homeowners hit pause on their moving plans due to spikes in mortgage rates. The fear of taking on a higher rate for their next home caused hesitation.


However, in today’s market, data suggests a shift in mindset among homeowners. Mark Zandi, Chief Economist at Moody’s Analytics, notes that life events and job changes are increasingly pressuring locked-in homeowners to consider selling. Moreover, homeowners are realizing that mortgage rates are unlikely to return to previous levels.

So, what would motivate you to move? Perhaps it's pursuing a dream job, seeking a neighborhood with a stronger sense of community, or simply needing more space.

It's also worth considering that mortgage rates are expected to decrease over the year, leading to a surge in buyer activity. Delaying your plans may result in increased competition once rates drop and ultimately higher prices.
