Looking ahead, 2020 is projected to be a strong year for homeownership. According to the Freddie Mac Forecast,



“We expect rates to remain low, falling to a yearly average of 3.8% in 2020.”



If you’re currently renting, 2020 may be a great time to think about making a jump into homeownership while mortgage rates are low.


As noted in the National Rent Report,



the national rent index increased by 1.4 percent year-over-year.”



With average rents on the rise, this year-over-year increase may not sound like much, but it can add up – fast. The math on how much extra it will cost you over time surely doesn’t lie.


Here’s an example: On a $1,500 rental payment, an increase of 1.4% adds an additional $21 dollars per month to your payment. When multiplied by the twelve months in a year, it’s a $252 overall annual increase. The price continues to multiply when you rent year after year, as rental prices rise.


History shows how average rental prices have been increasing each year, and there doesn’t seem to be much end in sight.
