It's not comfortable up there on that fence. But you're waiting for the right time. Will home prices continue to come down? Should I wait for a better interest rate? Just when IS the right time to buy?
Well, jump on down! Rarely do we have the stars aligned in a perfect pattern spelling out the words:
BUY NOW !
Seriously. Home prices are extremely attractive. Interest rates are still low (although there is talk that rates will rise soon), and with tax credits of up to $8,000 if you're a first-time homebuyer and up to $6,500 for repeat homebuyers, NOW is the perfect time to be finding your perfect home. (Visit our website for a link to all the details about the tax credits: TheShaferTeam.com )
Buyers who used to drive through neighborhoods dreaming about "someday" owning a home there are finding that at today's prices those homes are within reach.
This window of opportunity will not remain open forever. In fact, there is a deadline of April 30, 2010 to be under contract if you want to take advantage of these tax credits.
So - No more vacillating. No more waffling. No more dithering. No more wavering, see-sawing, or dilly-dallying.
Seize the day!
