Spring is traditionally the busiest time for Realtors, and we typically say that Spring begins in January. The reason is because for the buyers to see your house in the Spring, when they are ready to move, your house needs to be on the market NOW.
This year, the Spring rush will come even earlier because of the $8,000 tax credit. With the credit ending on April 30th, Realtors are expecting that buyers will be motivated to get those purchase agreements written quickly.
Not only are buyers excited to get an $8,000 tax credit, but sellers can now get in on the fun. If you have owned your home for 5 years or more, and buy a new house, you may be able to claim a $6,500 credit!
Call me today, because there is no time to waste if you want to take advantage of these tax credits!
