Thinking about buying your first home, or perhaps upgrading from your current place?
Thanks to the current economic climate and game-changing technology in the housing market, now is the perfect time to take the plunge.
Low interest rates Lenders are giving buyers mortgage rates that are extremely enticing— depending on your credit you can still get a mortgage below 4.0%. There’s a good chance these are the lowest mortgage rates we’ll see in a long time, which means affordability is at a high.
Prices are on their way up Mortgage rates may be low, but housing prices are getting higher and higher because of the pressures of demand—prices increased 5.1% year-over-year in November 2015. If you’re thinking about buying, delaying a few years could lead to a higher purchase price, or getting less home for your money.
A great job market The United States added 2.65 million jobs in the last year. There’s increasing job security and available work, leading to high consumer confidence.
Technology makes buying simpler Along with listing websites, like REColorado, there are an increasing number of websites and apps, like my mobile app, that simplify the process and make it easier to shop around for homes and mortgages.
Cheap fuel Lower gas and energy prices mean more money in your pocket and more purchasing power. The money you’re not putting into your gas tank or toward your utilities can instead go toward saving for a down payment or affording a bigger monthly mortgage payment.

"After deciding to move to Denver from NYC, my father and I decided to spend our vacation in Denver back in August, for the purpose of beginning the search for a new home. My father and I contacted Marc, and he made what we thought would be a long, drawn out process seem relatively easy. Before we knew it, my father and I owned a home by the time we finished our vacation in nine days.
Marc was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, patient and an all-around great person. He took the time to educate us, as we were first time home owners, and show us all around the Denver metro area. He also continues to follow up with us after the sale, which we really appreciate. I highly recommend Marc for your relocation needs.
