Additionally, ARCH Mortgage Insurance Company in their current Housing and Mortgage Market Review revealed their latest ARCH Risk Index, which estimates the probability of home prices being lower in two years. There was not one state that even had a moderate probability of home prices lowering. In fact, 34 of the 50 states had a minimal probability.

Bottom Line

Those waiting for Boston real estate prices to fall before purchasing a home should realize that the probability of that happening anytime soon is very low. With mortgage rates already at  historic lows, now may be the time to act.
