Now is the time to take advantage of the many programs out there for buying a home as well as a great time to sell.
We are currently at 3.1 months of Inventory!
People ask is a good time to sell, you bet it is! There is lower inventory and there are buyers out there looking. This is not the time to sit on the fence with your home buying decision. You must be prepared to act fast but also know how much you are willing to pay for a home. The homes that are priced right and look good are selling in days, not weeks.
Interest rates remain low!
Financing has changed as of Jan 10, 2014 there is more documentation required to obtain a loan. If you are thinking of buying call me and I can refer you to a couple of lenders that can help you decide if you are ready financially to make that move. We want to make sure when you are making an offer on a home that this is the home for you and your family.
Seller's are finding that they are getting more for their homes, if they take the time to pre-pare the home for selling.
Don't miss out on this great opportunity to position yourself to buy or to sell your home. The time to take action is now and the choice should be yours! Interest rates continue to remain low! Interest rates can't stay this low for ever. Rental prices continue to increase and now are outpacing monthly mortgage payments for some. Call me when you are thinking of moving!

THINKING ABOUT SELLING? READ THIS
In today's real estate market, timing, condition and price are everything, you must be ahead of the market in order to sell your home. By this I mean you can not price your house according to what you think it is worth, you must look at the market and compare everything. Be realistic in pricing your home, you do want to sell, right?
You must be ready to sell! Have you detached from your home? Have you started to declutter your home? Clearing out what you no longer need is a great place to start. If you have things you just can't part with rent a storage unit and move the excess into it until it comes time for your new home. Start now and prepare your current home for the next owner! Take a look at Better Homes and Gardens - Declutter, Declutter, Declutter.
Buyers, many good homes are sold before they are ever advertised. If a home is ready to sell we are now seeing multiple offers coming in. Are you ready to raise your offer to get the home you want? Don't hesitate in making an offer on a home if it's the one for you! A pre-approval letter from a lender, is a must to make an offer! If you are not currently working with a lender, please contact me immediately and I can provide you with a couple of trusted lenders to choose from so you can get started on your home buying experience.
