  • Mortgage rates are coming down, and many economists expect them to drop below 7%.
  • Our market is slowly stabilizing into a balanced market, not plummeting. Prices are expected to hold steady.
  • Both new listings and contracts should increase seasonally starting in January.
  • It’s a great time to be a buyer.  Seller concessions are generally available, and there is less competition in the marketplace.
  • Within the next six months, we can expect appreciation rates to align with the inflation rate. However, if mortgage rates decline further, this projection would change.
  • The year-over-year appreciation numbers will start to look more positive in November and December.
  • Concessions for rate buydowns could decline if demand increases.
  • If mortgage rates continue to come down, we will see demand increase and a big jump in accepted contracts.

At Bison Ventures, we understand that the current market is challenging, and there is uncertainty regarding interest rates. We know we have many clients in need of a new home, and we do not want today’s interest rates to be a barrier. 

We are currently offering the Bison Refinance Program. After six on-time payments of a new mortgage, borrowers are eligible for a special refinance for three years from closing. This program entails NO lender or appraisal fees. It’s a perfect opportunity for your clients to buy now and lower their payments later!
