Slashing Interest Rates: Why Now is the Best Time to Buy a House

Coronavirus has caused the government to take many precautions to protect the economy. Among these safeguards, some good news exists for those interested in purchasing a new or second home. In an effort to jumpstart the economy, the Federal Reserve has slashed interest rates. Prospective investors can capitalize on these lower interest rates to get a great deal on a house. Find yourself bored due to a shelter in place order or quarantine? Trying to avoid heavily populated areas? Consider looking into houses at Indian Lake. 

Why Do Interest Rates Determine the Best Time to Buy a House? 

On Sunday, March 15, the Federal Reserve reported that it would drop interest rates to zero. Additionally, they will buy at least $700 billion in government and mortgage-related bonds. Why? The Federal Reserve is making these decisions in order to protect the economy from Coronavirus related downfalls. The U.S interest rate is currently in a range from 0 to 0.25% when it was previously 1 to 1.25%. Lowered interest rates mean that you have the opportunity to get a better deal on a loan.
