So, you are wondering the same thing that everyone else keeps asking...Is anyone still buying houses??? Are banks still loaning money for home mortgages? Can people still qualify?
Sure they are! YES...YES...YES!!! First time home buyers are taking advantage of the $8,000 tax credit through November 30th 2009. Interest rates are absolutely phenomenal right now! Days on market in Lubbock are only a little over 100 from the time a property is listed until the day it is closed on...The Sellers Realty has averaged a very short 80 days on market in 2009! Having sold 53 homes year-to-date for $8 million in sales volume, we personally believe Lubbock real estate is very healthy! In fact, we are having our best year ever and are soooo thankful!
We are extremely fortunate to be in Lubbock,TX. The economy has not suffered here like other places around the country, at least not yet. If you need or want to sell...now would be a great time because buyers are out there taking advantage of record low interest rates and tax credits. After you sell, it is also a great time to buy because of low interest rates! The Lubbock home market is not volatile like many other places. We have a very steady and conservative appreciation of properties. Just remember...Whether Buying or Selling...It's Always a SELLERS Market!
