It is a Great Time to Buy a Home

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Signature Partners

Despite what you may hear, it is a great time to buy a home.

  • Interest rates are still low. Even though they are higher today than they were a month ago, they are still under 5%! Even if they went to 6%, that would still be a great rate.
  • There are so many awesome home values out there right now, it is almost too good to pass up.
  • Owning a home is still THE DREAM for may Americans.
  • New Construction has never been more affordable.
  • Not all but many of the homes on the market, have sellers who actually want to sell their home. This may sound like a no - brainer, but not all home sellers are motivated.
  • Lastly, my personal belief is that real estate is a good investment right now if you are going to stay in your home for 5 or more years. I believe it is just crazy how much home you can buy for the money in West Cobb during 2011.

The fact that it is a great time to buy also makes this a great time to sell.

It is a great time to buy. I have never in my 20 years in the business seen a better opportunity for buyers.

This is by far the best buyer's market in our lifetime.  There are plenty of bargain homes on the market and interest rates are still very, very reasonable. 

 

Great price + low interest rate = great deal!
