    10 Tips to Minimize Stress When Selling Your Home

    When I was growing up, my family must have moved a dozen times. After the first few moves, we had it down to a science: timed out, scheduled, down to the last box. Despite our best efforts, plans would change, move-out and move-in days would shift, and the experience would stress the entire family out. Despite the stress, we always managed to settle in our new home and sell our old one before the start of school. 
    With a lot of planning and scheduling, you can minimize the stress of selling your house and moving. Here are some tips:

    Half of Homebuyers with Kids Base Purchase on School District

    Purchasing a home is one of the biggest decisions a person can make during their lifetime. After all, where you live determines many factors about your life, including where you work, worship or even send your children to school.
    As back to school season approaches, a recent report from the National Association of REALTORS highlights the different purchasing and selling habits of Americans, revealing that a significant share root their home purchasing decisions in school district quality.
    “Parents inherently make sacrifices for their children and family, and that is no different when shopping for a home,” NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun said. “Of course, affordability is a part of the decision, but we have seen buyers with kids willing to spend a little more in order to land a home in a better school zone or district.”

    Mortgage Rate Forecast

    Over the past few months we’ve seen a fairly significant drop in mortgage rates that has been essentially driven by geopolitical uncertainty - mainly caused by the trade war with China and ongoing discussions over tariffs with Mexico.
     
    Now, mortgage rates are based on yields on 10-Year treasuries, and the interest rate on bonds tends to drop during times of economic uncertainty.  When this occurs, mortgage rates also drop.
     
    My current forecast model predicts that average 30-year mortgage rates will end 2019 at around 4.4%, and by the end of 2020 I expect to see the average 30-year rate just modestly higher at 4.6%.
