CEDAR HOMES | IS IT A GOOD TIME TO BUILD?
When looking at the overall investment in a custom home, you may be surprised to find that now is the time to start finalizing your dream custom cedar home building plans.
LOWER INTEREST RATES
Mortgage interest rates are the lowest they have been in decades. For example, in the U.S. and Canada, consumers can secure a 5-year fixed mortgage at an interest rate of 4% or lower. Also, we have established a special construction loan program for customers through nationally-accredited banks.
HIGHER MARKET CONFIDENCE
In the U.S., the April Improving Marketing Index (IMI) indicates that the number and geographic distribution of improving housing markets continued to expand beyond the 100 mark in April. “This should be an encouraging sign for those who are considering a cedar home purchase,” said Kurt Pfotenhauer, Vice-Chairman of First American Title Insurance Company.
LOWER CONSTRUCTION COSTS
Many builders of cedar homes and custom home finishing suppliers are presently available to work at reduced prices, but this is expected to change with the forecasted increase in housing starts in 2013. As well, building material prices, including lumber, are expected to go up, influenced by increasing gas prices and demand in Asia and N. America.
