Real Estate’s Strongest Link – The First Time Home Buyer

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate

The question on everyone’s lips is, “When are things going to return to normal in real estate?” Well, if the notion of “normal” refers to the conditions and shady financial dealings that created the artificially inflated housing markets of five years ago, then Team Morgan, your Miami-based Coldwell Banker realtors, believes we need to be thinking about redefining “normal.”

The bad lending practices of the past are indeed making it more difficult now to secure financing, but try to understand that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Those days of lower standards and easy money led us into this predicament in the first place. It’s good for housing and for the economy when banks become interested in whether loans will be repaid.

In the “new” normal, home prices will stabilize, the number of sales will start gaining, and more people will again realize the benefits that homeownership offers, for both personal and financial security. With historically low interest rates, affordable prices, government incentives, and motivated sellers, the housing market is already experiencing the initial signs of recovery.

All of these factors combine to get first-time buyers excited about a purchase. As these consumers enter the market, they will trigger other purchases, and the chain of transactions grows. Expect your real estate representative to reveal a wide range of affordable choices and guide you toward securing the financing you need to make your dream come true.

Mike--You are right. There will always be "first time" buyers.  Some of us remember when we bought our first home and the interest rates were above 10%. This is a great time to buy that first home before the rates start to climb back up.
