When it comes to quality, one should choose the best luxury home builder. Good news this year for many property developers all over the globe because the mortgage rates continue to decline. The current rate is now almost 4% and the confidence of the homebuilders in the United States continue to rise.

Before the recession a decade ago, the highest sentiment rate recorded was November of 2005. Now, the National Association of Homebuilders has released the most recent Housing Market Index and it has climbed up to 60 which is a first since November of ten year ago.

There are many factors that contributed to the quick sales as well as the multiple offers that took place on various home offers nationwide. One of the factors is the low rates of the mortgage and the second in the many opportunities for loan programs that are available to buyers even with a down payment of fewer than 20 per cent.

There is an increase in the foot traffic and many homebuilders are optimistic that the next six months will be the strongest since the highest records made 10 years ago. For property buyers who are worried about the sudden rise in prices or increase in rates should be aware that the next six months until next year would be the best time to grab a deal. This is because in every half point increase in the mortgage rates will result to more that 6% increase in the homeownership price every year.
