Buying a home has always been the best investment, and today it's even better. Reports of doom and gloom must be put into perspective, and the longer you hold out waiting for the best deal the more likely you are to miss a great opportunity. Here are some reasons why now is a good time to buy a home.
It's a Buyer's Market, Folks Many sellers have upgraded properties to increase curb appeal. Your next home most likely has new windows, a top-notch roof, energy efficient appliances, and a much nicer bathroom and kitchen. There is no need to worry about major home improvement projects; today's homes are move-in ready.
A ton of brand new homes are on the market at great prices, too. Buy a new construction and be the first to park in the garage, paint the walls, and landscape the yard. A new home is your opportunity to put a stamp on something truly meaningful.
You Can Afford to Be Choosy Your choices in the housing market may feel a little staggering. You have the chance to shop real estate until you find exactly what you want. Record low mortgage rates are a nice bonus that make your dream home even more affordable.
What About Expired Government Home-buying Incentives? Think you've already missed a great deal? Actually, these incentives caused prices to rise for a short time, offsetting some advantages to buyers. It's all part of the cause and effect cycle in real estate, and what you're looking for is balance.
It's Time to Buy a Home Remember, you're not buying a house-you're buying a home. Weigh your options carefully, but don't wait so long that you miss this good opportunity. Picture your family and friends relaxed and comfortable in every room and you'll see yourself, proud of your smart investment. Posted by Jesse at 7:15 PM
