Are you starting your Christmas shopping early here in Rocky Mount? Well here is food for thought...
A bunch of years ago (before I got into Real Estate) a large red bow showed up on the door of the house across from us one Christmas morning. A good friend of ours had bought the house and surprised his wife with it for Christmas. I thought, "That was a great gift!"
As I noticed the various shops here locally having a Santa Weekend today, it reminded me of that Christmas. What a wonderful way to give yourself or a loved one the gift of home ownership. Now is a very good time to be purchasing. Here's why...
- Low interest rates. Interest rates have gone back down from their slight up-swing and that gives you more purchasing power.
- Wide variety of inventory. With over 900 residential properties available in our multiple listing service, you can find all price ranges, styles and neighborhoods.
- Good deals. As the year end approaches, there are some sellers who do not want to carry their property over into the next year. For whatever reason, they are willing to negotiate off their current list price. I am not saying they will give their home away, but they may be willing to take a little less to close before the end of the year.
So, if you think "That would be a great gift!", then let's get started. If you are thinking, "I could not do that right now", come in and we can sit down and talk about the home buying process and see if you could actually do that right now.
Whether the time is right now or later, don't miss out on the value of home ownership.
