The Purchase Decision
Before buying your house, you should consider whether homeownership is right for you.
If you are looking for a new place to live, should you rent or purchase? Buying may appear appealing because it allows you to avoid rising rents and build equity. However, routine home maintenance and repairs can quickly deplete a bank account. The first question you ask yourself will help drive the rest of your decision-making process.
Here are some basic questions to think about when looking to buy a home:
How long do you intend to stay? If you plan to relocate in the next few years, renting is probably a better option.
What size house can you afford? If you can't afford a home big enough for your family in a few years, renting may be a good option while you save up.
What's available? If you can't find a place you like, it's probably not worth tying yourself to something you don't like.

When Is the Best Time to Sell a House?
According to research, June is the best month to sell a home.

According to a recent ATTOM Data Solutions analysis of more than 28 million single-family home and condo sales from 2011 to 2018, the months of May and June are the best times to sell. In fact, 19 of the 20 days with the highest seller premiums occur in May and June!

And, for the second year in a row, June 28th is THE BEST DAY TO SELL, with sellers earning a 10.8 percent premium over the median sale price.

“Timing the housing market is far from an exact science. But home sellers who want to get the highest price should aim to complete their deals during the peak house-hunting season in late Spring or early Summer, when the most potential buyers are out looking,” said Todd Teta, chief product officer with ATTOM Data Solutions.

The home-buying process can be intimidating for both first-time and move-up buyers. According to a new Ally Home survey, slightly more than half of Americans are concerned about the process of purchasing a home.

According to the survey, many consumers are more afraid of buying a home than they are of dealing with their fear of commitment (89%), filing their tax returns (82%), having a tooth pulled (78%), or overcoming their fear of heights (75%).

"Homes are a significant investment, so the buying process can be intimidating, particularly for first-time buyers," says Glenn Brunker, president of Ally Home. "There is a lot to juggle, from navigating fluctuations in home prices and mortgage rates to submitting an offer."

According to a National Association of Home Builders survey, 66% of active home buyers spent three months or more looking for a home without success in the third quarter. 45 percent of prospective buyers say they are constantly outbid by other buyers ...
