We spent a few minutes with our mortgage team member, Chris Simms, Certified Mortgage Planner of Pulaski Bank in their Preferred Home Lending and asked him why it was a good time for 1st time Home Buyers to buy a home at this time. Chris indicated that:
First of all there is the $7,500 Tax Credit for 1st Time Home Buyers
Second, the FHA Down Payment requirement is increasing to 3.5% on January 1, 2009. Currently only need 3% down.
Lastly, Rates are at their lowest of the year.
Combine this with the fact that sales typically slow down at this time of year and sellers are looking for buyers the pros are adding up in purchasing a home. We have the resources to find you a home. View some of our current inventory at www.Trails2OpenSpaces.com.
