First-Time Homebuyers Face the Opportunity of a Lifetime in Harrisburg

First-Time Homebuyers Face the Opportunity of a Lifetime in Harrisburg!  Mortgage rates in January stood near lows that were last seen during the Truman administration while home prices were well off their peaks of previous years. The combination made housing affordability, as measured by the National Association of REALTORS®, the highest since NAR® launched its Affordability Index in 1973.  

Lots of For Sale Signs      

Housing inventory is also abundant in many markets, enabling first-time home buyers to secure good homes and pave the way to their financial futures. Indeed, homes and their long-term virtues of shelter, wealth-building, and personal and civic pride are available at bargain-basement prices that won't, or can't, last.


Naturally, first-time buyers have many questions about home buying, starting with costs. With research and the services of a licensed real estate professional, these consumers can demystify the process and place themselves on the fast track to homeownership.

Knowledge is power - 9 out of every 10 home searches today begin on the Internet. With just a few mouse clicks, you can peruse neighborhoods, search countless online listings and view virtual tours packed with detailed photographs. Prudential Homesale is the only local broker site serving all of South Central and Southeastern PA. Because we include listings from six Multiple Listing Systems,  first-time home buyers, in fact any home buyer can search beyond their own county lines into neighboring areas where home values may be more attractive.


It goes without saying: home ownership remains a sound financial decision for most and a key component of long-term financial planning. First-time buyers who seek homes for all the right reasons - a place to raise a family, build for the future and face life's opportunities and challenges - can secure their dreams and build for their futures at some of the most attractive values in years.  Don't wait until the prices, and interest rates, start to climb.

 I have always preferred owning my own home. Even with the present economy, I would rather be paying my own mortgage and not have to be at the whim of a landlord!  I think people are tired of hearing "now is the time to buy", but it really is time before the rates start rising!
