A short outlook for housing in 2019

Have you made it a goal to buy a home in 2019?  If so then knowing when to buy can offer real savings.  In this short video I explain why I think home buyers that take action at the beginning of the year will likely be better off than those who wait.

As explained in the video, many experts are predicting that home prices and interest rates will rise throughout the year.  Given that mortgage rates are currently at multi-month lows, I am encouraging those who want to buy a home to look sooner rather than later.
