Selling Your Lindenhurst Ny Home - What Are You Waiting For...Spring?

Newsflash: Spring is here!

You are wondering, Jackie, it's not spring. It's cold out. The flowers are not blooming and the trees are naked! Please explain.

And that is what I'm going to do!

The home buyer tax credit will expire on 6/30/10 and they have to be in contract by 4/30/10. Because of this, buyers are out early according to an article I read from USA Today.

Spring home buying usually starts around March and runs through May. Not this year. As a homeowner, you may also be a trade-up buyer. It takes about 8 weeks to close on a home. If you list your home in March, you are cutting it close even if your home is priced at market value. Why take that chance?

You may think January is too early but it's not. Other homeowners are thinking the same things you are. If you want to have less competition, listing your home now is the best plan. Be different. Think outside the box while others aren't. When there are a lot of homes on the market, buyers have their pick of the litter.

You have a nice home. Listing it now while there is less competition will put you ahead of the pack.

So folks, Spring is here!

Jackie:  Couldn't have said it better myself.  If there is a home seller out there waiting for April or May, they will be sorry.  The buyer urgency is NOW, before the tax credit expires.

Hi Chris Ann! I also can't see the government extending it this time. It will be another wait and see game.

Jackie, 

It's definitely a SPRING Forward kind of time right now.  If sellers don't they really might miss the boat, not to mention the mortgage money!

All the best, Michelle
