That house you want is about to get more expensive!


Blog by Kristen Meyer | February 18th, 2010


If you are a first-time homebuyer, the house you want is about to cost you $8000 more than it does today.  The tax credit for first timers will expire on April 30th 2010. 

Yes, it is a great time to buy.  Tax incentives, low interest rates, and affordable homes make this the best time in recent history it invest in a primary residence.  But, is it the right time for you?

That depends.  Here are some reasons it's definitely worth at least consulting with a Realtor to see if it's the right choice for you:

-You're renting and want to paint your walls a different color than "Apartment White"
-You expect that you will be paying for a roof over your head in one way or another for the next few years
-You've been able to squirrel away a little dough for a down payment
-You watch HGTV "Property Virgins" nightly
-You've been accused of looking at "Realty Porn" on the web

If you're wondering if it's time to take the plunge, call Kristen or Rosemary for a no hassle chat about your potential domestic bliss. 

$8000 is a lot of money.  In the words of Mr. T, don't be a foo'.
