Current market conditions have been summed up this way by Tom Wright, President of the Regional Plan Association, who declared “Our region is struggling under the weight of its own success — with housing prices at an all-time high and space at a premium.”

His words are evidenced by the direct impact continued low inventory levels are having on availability. However, low interest rates continue to have a positive effect on affordability. This fact is leading more people to seek to buy with fewer looking to rent. That is having a big impact on where home prices are heading.

Recent surveys reveal that with rental prices having moved so high the last several years people find it makes more sense than ever to buy. Right now, mortgage payments and rental fees are comparable in terms of monthly expense, while owning remains the path to greater financial advantages in the long term.
