The Cost of Waiting to Buy a Home in Atlanta— Rising Interest Rates


Many homebuyers in Atlanta tend to sit on the fence, worried about where the market may go, and if there will be a “better” time to buy down the road. While it is important to remember that the real estate market is ever-changing, it is also key to keep in mind that waiting to buy a home does indeed come with a cost— and the longer you wait, the higher the cost!

According to Keeping Current Matters, the cost of waiting to buy a home is defined as the additional funds it would take to buy a home if prices and interest rates were to increase over a period of time. In today’s market, interest rates continue to rise and waiting to buy a home until the end of the year could cost you more than you think!

Below is a helpful infographic that details just how much you would spend in additional funds should you wait a few months to buy a home in Atlanta or wait until 2019.
