Even more compelling for the luxury home buyer is that the average price is up 4.4%. With the real estate market expected to continue improving, high-end buyers should strongly consider purchasing this winter to avoid higher prices after the strong spring market. By the end of spring, prices could easily be up another 4.4% which would mean for the average luxury home the price would be about $79,000 higher. That’s a lot to pay for.
AND GET THIS! Banks are still giving money away. In the high-end jumbo market, buyers can borrow up to 80% at:
· 3.5% for a 30-year fixed-rate loan,
· Or 2.65% for 10/1 ARM (30-year amortization, rate is fixed for the first 10 years and then floats annually).
Luxury home buyers are urged to take advantage of today’s once-in-a-lifetime reduced prices before they rise any further, and today’s historic low interest rates.
