The housing market has had its ups and downs. Prospective home buyers and sellers need to assess the state of the housing market before making any major decisions to buy, sell, or even refinance, as it could greatly affect the price, terms, and interest rates.
For example, those who bought homes before 2010 — during the height of the housing crisis — have likely experienced a decline in value, meaning they paid more for it than it is worth. Staying apprised of current housing market news, which you can find here on GOBankingRates, is the key to making sure you’re getting what you pay for and that you don’t sell a moment too soon. The housing market can often be unpredictable, but GOBankingRates can help you make sense of it all. Find answers to your biggest questions, including the best and worst times to buy or sell a home.
