Some people prefer to rent because they don’t feel ready to take the home ownership leap, but it is a great time to tke the plunge! With the $8,000 first-time buyer’s tax credit, plus low home prices and great interest rates, you should comsider making our move!
Usually, the move from an apartment to a house is prompted by the desire to get out on your own, and build your own equity. Who wants to pay a landlord when you can be paying for your own piece of property?
As a former teacher, I love helping people with the ins and puts of learning the home buying process. Here are some ways I (or your Realtor) can/should help…
- Need to make upgrades to your new home to make it into your castle? I got people. I have worked with a lot of different contractors in my business, and I know the right people to refer you to. Not only that, but I know which upgrades will give you the most bang for your buck when you get ready to sell your home in the future.
- Do you tweet, facebook, or use message boards? So do I! 32 is the average age of first-time buyers, and guess what, that’s how old I am too! Feel free to join me on social networks, text me or e-mail me, whatever way you like to communicate, I’m on it!
- I’ll keep you updated. I can sign you up for automatic e-mails so that when a house that meets your criteria comes onto the market, you’ll be notified. Even once you buy, I like to keep in touch so that you are aware of the value of your home and what others like it are selling for. Plus, when you are ready to upgrade, I’ll be there!
- Subscribe to my blog, I try to write articles that will help home buyers and sellers, provide real estate news, and keep you updated on events in the area. If you want to be in the know, read often! Feel free to comment on any topics you are interested in!!
