Should you even consider buying a home now?
Simply put, if you are even thinking about it the answer is.....YES!
But why? Here are three very compelling reasons....
First off, interest rates are near all time lows.
Next, home prices have declined to levels not seen in years. There are plenty of homes on the market today and sellers, if they really want to sell, are willing to negotiate.
And, finally, first-time home buyers, if they qualify, are eligible for up to an $8,000 tax credit.
Did you know that even if home prices were to decline 10% but also during that time, interest rates available for home loans were to increase by 1.00%, your monthly principal and interest payment would actually be higher? Source:1st Priority Financial
Are you ready to start your home search? Pictures of homes are nice, but you can't buy a home on the internet. Who can you trust? Who should you call?
I know the area. I know the neighborhoods. I know where the hospitals, shopping and schools are. And, probably most importantly, I know my market.
I'll only show you what you want to see, I won't screen out any homes, nor will I steer you in any particular direction.
What I will do is give you my honest opinions of the homes we see and, when the time comes to put pen to paper, you'll know all that is possible to know about that particular home.
I'd like to be that team.
