I have a question for every single buyer and seller out there sitting on a fence. WHY? What in the world are you waiting for. What are you hoping for? The signs are all around you. Lowest interest and steady, great prices on houses are the two indicators you must be seeing. Maybe you are reading too much national news, or watching too much network tv. These people are paid to deliver audience, and audience, it has been proven, is more likely to look for bad news than good. Think about this, why do some slow down as they pass a car accident? Why are their tv shows of people doing really stupid stuff made worse by the fact that the network pays them squat for the privilege of showing how stupid they are. The best/worst of them dress up and sit in the first row with their families. I just don’t get it.
Here is something I do get. Right now you can buy a house that 10 years ago was well beyond your realm. You may not make as much money selling your existing house, but do you at all wonder what the next house will be worth to you in ten years. Think of the low interest rates, think of getting into a home that was beyond your capability but right now is within your reach. What are you thinking? Who are you listening to?
I would suggest stop listening to people who are doom and gloom. The economy is cyclical, it has always been. There are ups and downs. No doubt we have had down, what comes next…come on, this is easy? Part of me would like to interview a thousand people who are sitting on a fence about either buying or selling a property right now. I will hold that footage for several years and then come back when the cycle in our economy has turned around (you know it will-that is nature). At that point I am sure I could get chump change to sell it to America’s Stupidest Home Owners, or some such show like that.
You do not want to loose this opportunity. There are prudent ways to find the absolute best deal in your neighborhood talk to a professional. They have been sitting on the sidelines reading too much of the same news you have been. Now is the time to create your future. Now is the time for you to buy or sell a home and be thrilled as the economy makes you look like you are somehow brilliant. They don’t have tv shows for that, but you can choose to sit in your spacious library and sip some rare red wine that you are able to afford because you locked in a low interest rate.
