I noticed this week that a post I did a while back on mortgage calculators has been accessed a lot (and I mean A LOT). In the backend analytics of my blog I can see which pages are getting viewed. I can’t see who is viewing them, only that they are being viewed. This week the mortgage calculator post was off the charts with viewers.
Right around the same time, Case-Shiller came out with their latest housing report. Because they NEVER sugar-coat their findings and only report the unvarnished truth, they are considered the gold standard in housing reports. This really positive housing report has made many buyers and sellers take notice.
A new report that the housing market seems to be strengthening is released and my mortgage calculator post starts being viewed by people want to see what they can afford. A coincidence? I don’t think so. I think now is the time for buyers to “catch the bottom” and for sellers to feel there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
In case you’re curious about how much you can afford, here are the mortgage calculators again.
Please note, these calculators are for directional purposes only and should not be considered your “final” number. If you’d like more concrete numbers/facts, it is best to speak with a mortgage professional. If you don’t know one, I am happy to recommend 2 or 3 people that can provide help.
