We have been hearing a lot about why now is a good time to buy a home – especially if you’re a first time homebuyer.
- $8,000 tax rebate for homes purchased and closed by November 30, 2009
- Reduced sales prices and great incentives
- Low, low, low interest rates
Each of these reasons individually provides a great incentive to act. However, put them all together and you have a Grand Slam of a reason to get off the bench and start looking for your new home.
However, there are other considerations why now – this summer – is a great time to buy a new home. This is especially true if you have kids in school or entering school for the first time. It’s challenging for children to change schools at any time and even more so in the middle of a school year. Physically moving in the summer gives children a chance to acclimate to the new area, meet neighborhood kids and future classmates and start the year off in their new school – when everyone is experiencing the beginning of a new school year.
Summer is a great time for adults to move as well. People spend more time outdoors, so you’ll have a better opportunity to meet your neighbors and you have more daylight to explore the new area you’ll call home for the next few years.
One of the top reasons for buying a new home in a new community is that everyone is new to the neighborhood and it’s easier to make friends. And, if you move to a master planned community like Vintage Township with neo-traditional homes in Lubbock, Texas, you’ll have the added advantage of meeting people at the pool or at neighborhood summer events like their annual Independence Day Celebration, community garage sale or community Farmers Markets. There are lots of planned kids’ activities throughout the summer also.
It’s not to late to find your first…or your next….new home and be in before the Summer’s over.
