Bottom Line:

- Waiting will cost you spending additional funds to buy a home if home prices and mortgage interest rates increase over a preiod of time.

- Freddie Mac projects interests rates to increase to Freddie % by the end of 2019. predicts interest rates to rise to 5.1% by the end of 2019.

- Average Home prices may increase in the next 12 months. According to the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the average home purchace price has increased by 9% in the past 12months and by 66% over the last 5 years in the Denver Metro Area!

- The money you pay for your rent is paying off your landlord's mortgage and is gone forever. It is invested in your landlord's equity and wealth instead of your own!

Have you ever calculated the amount of money you've paid and invested in someone else's wealth over the years you've been paying rent? If you were renting for the last couple of years and paying at lease $1,500/month for rent - that's $36,000 you could have invested in your own home!

- Don't have any money saved for a downpayment? No problem, there are downpayment assistance programs you could apply for! 

- Talk to your local expert and find out if you are able to own a home now!
