It’s no secret that the housing market is still hotter than ever. What’s even more shocking is the price of rent across the United States. According to research, rent jumped 11.5% from August 2020 to August 2021, signifying the first-ever double-digit increase on record. In many cities, rent is actually more expensive than a starter home. To couple this, it seems competition is finally starting to wane for buying activity. Whether it’s the start of school, slightly increased mortgages, or external factors, the home buying process is finally starting to level out. With extremely expensive rent prices and bidding wars taking a break, what better time than to buy a home? If you’ve been considering something in the Raleigh-Durham area, now is the time to go ahead and plan for your new home.
