Local Real Estate Comments and Ramblings


Buyers getting a better deal after the tax credit!

Now that the tax credits are expired many areas are seeing price declines.  Buyers who missed out or waited are coming out ahead! The combination of low interest rates, high supply, and lowered demand make it a great time to buy for those who are ready.  

As I have said before ...... Don't wait to buy real estate, Buy real estate then wait!
RISMEDIA, June 29, 2010—(MCT)—Home shoppers who missed the April 30 deadline for a housing tax credit might have the last laugh. For a variety of reasons, they could end up saving more than the $8,000 they could have received from the tax refund.

In some neighborhoods and price ranges, sellers are dropping their prices because buyers are harder to find now that the credit has expired. Builders and real estate companies began offering promotions after the tax credit ended that, in many cases, are worth more than the credit.

Great post, Bob.  I'm sure many buyers weren't thinking of that when they made their purchase.  


P.S.  It's been forever since we've spoken.  Hope all is well.

Hi Kathy, Thanks for the comment.  I had a couple of buyers that I was working with in April.  We kept getting in to multiple offer situations and getting outbid.  I told them then that not getting the credit won't be that big a deal because after the fever died down they are going to get a better deal.  Certainly seems that way now.
