January 2, 2019

As you consider the next steps for your home in 2019, the benefits of Denver bathroom remodeling or other home upgrades are becoming a more favorable option for homeowners. With interest rates on the rise, now is a great time to consider making the changes you want to your home. Learn about upcoming housing trends and remodel considerations for your home. 

Rise in Interest Rates Changing Denver Housing Market

From 2014-2018, Denver’s housing market rebounded well from the housing crash of 2009. The market is projected to cool off with slightly more houses becoming available. However, despite a little more flexibility in a home search, prices continue to remain high. This is consistent with trends all across the country as U.S. existing home sales rise, trend weak. The price tag of houses paired with an upcoming increase in mortgage interest rates could make the price tag of a move quite high. If you have savings for a down payment, consider taking the funds and use for a remodel. Why? The interest rates may increase for credit cards or loans. But even if you need to take out a loan, you may find a remodel to be your best solution financially in 2019.
