NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO WAIT UNTIL SPRING!

Posted: January 15, 2010 in Sunrise Creek Living

OK, now some real stuff…

In years past, conventional wisdom was to wait until Spring to put your home on the market if you were thinking of selling. That is not the case in today’s real estate environment. With the government still handing out $8,000 first time homebuyer tax credits as well as the $6,500 incentive for those who have lived in their current home for five years or more, now is the time to list your home. Existing home/condo inventory is down nearly 5,000 units since January of 2008 and Showing Services throughout the Metro area are reporting record number of showing requests set, not seen since August of 2009. Home prices don’t show any sign of increasing over the next several months, so there is no reason not to get your home on the market today, while inventory is low, buyers’ demand is increasing and interest rates are still hovering around 5.0%.
