New homes in Delaware: Wilmington market trends

It’s not likely that home prices will come down any time soon, as market trends in Delaware real estate reflect a slight but stable surge in costs. With today’s comparatively low mortgage rates, home ownership is now incredibly affordable, and is often less expensive than renting. Here are five compelling reasons to consider purchasing your new home in Wilmington sooner rather than later:

  1. Home prices are increasing. Wilmington home sale prices between December 2012 and February 2013 were 14.5% higher compared to the previous year, according to Trulia. Economists predict these house prices will continue to appreciate.
  2. Mortgage rates may rise next year. Mortgage interest rates are hovering at 4% or less, but these rates may trend higher later in the year and into 2014.
  3. Rent prices are climbing. In 2012, rent prices across the nation went up 4%. Rental rates are expected to increase as the economy continues to recover and strengthen.
  4. Mortgage rules may become stricter. With new rules like the Qualified Residential Mortgage, homebuyers may face new conditions for down payments and minimum credit scores.
  5. Better incentives are on offer. New construction homes are offering excellent terms for homebuyers with flexible financing options and low down payments.
