Should I Buy a Home Now?

Home Buying

Considering a home purchase? You might be pondering whether to make your move now or hold off. While the final decision rests with you, Evergreen Home Loans is here to provide insights to guide your choice.

Future Trends in Home Prices

Every quarter, industry authorities like Fannie Mae and Pulsenomics unveil the Home Price Expectations Survey (HPES), pooling insights from over a hundred experts—ranging from economists to real estate aficionados and market strategists. They weigh in on their projections for home prices.

Recent findings hint at a unanimous expectation: home prices are on an upward trajectory for the next five years.

Interpreting the Data

The consensus is clear from the data—no anticipated dips in prices, only a steady climb of 3-4% annually. Even with a slight moderation in the pace in 2025, the cumulative effect of these increments is significant. For instance, if a home appreciates by 3.78% this year, followed by 3.36% and 3.87% in the subsequent years, the growth is substantial over time.

What This Means for Potential Buyers

This consistent upward trend is promising news if you're considering buying. It signifies that a home bought today is likely to appreciate, bolstering your financial asset over the years.

To put this into perspective, let's consider a scenario: purchasing a $400,000 home now could potentially boost your household wealth by over $83,000 in the next five years, based on HPES projections.

Evergreen's Takeaway

Waiting to buy might seem safe, but it could mean higher costs down the line. If you're poised to buy and seeking a valuable investment, the current market forecasts suggest that now is a wise time to act.
