Personally I have stopped watching the news. It is downright depressing. There is always some horrible story about a tragic accident, bad economic report, the war, etc. Pay attention to how these outside influences are effecting your disposition. Remember sad sells - happy doesn't.
So Now I watch the Planet Earth DVD's while I run on the treadmill. What amazing footage has been captured - just breath-taking. So one morning I was watching this funny otter family teasing Mr. Alligator, "Can't catch me - Can't catch me". They were having such a good time. I did actually feel bad for the alligator although not for very long. He swam down the river bank and "snatched a bird right out of a tree". The footage was a little alarming - not really the positive inspiration that I was looking for. It was then I realized that it is truly the circle of life. What may on the surface appear as a "bad real estate market" is actually just a necessary correction. As my Pop Pop says "Honey what goes up - must come down. It will go back up again but it will also come back down. It is the cycle of life."
Now I realize that it is our job to counter balance the negative media with the positive that truly exists in the current real estate market. So tune in world - here it comes .................................
This is a buyer's market - which means "NOW is the time to buy". Don't let Negative Nellie's tell you anything different.
Did you know that you can OWN a home with as little as 3.5% down? NO you DO NOT need 20% down.
Did you know that the recent interest rate reduction below 5% increased your buying power by $30,000 on average?
Did you know that you have the best selection of homes available to choose from in years?
Did you know that historically homes double in value every ten years?
Did you know that the government is giving 1st time home buyers an $8,000 tax rebate?
Did you know that with interest and tax write-offs your mortgage payment may actually be a lot less than your rent?
Don't let fear hold you back. NOW is the time to make your move. We can show you why. So turn off that TV and let's go find a place you can call HOME :)
