Homeownership is the most important thing a person can do financially. Although the Real Estate market has gone through some rough patches lately, the fundamental pros of homeownership have not changed.

At Sep 20, 2010

Here are 10 reasons why buying a home right now is a great idea:

  1. You can get a good deal. Prices are down 30 percent on average. They’re at a level that makes sense for people’s income.
    2. Mortgages are cheap. At 4.3 percent on average for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, your costs to own are down by a fifth from two years ago.
    3. You can save on taxes. When you add up the deductions for mortgage interest and others, the cost of owning can drop below renting for a comparable place.
    4. It’ll be yours. The one benefit to owning that never changes is that you can paint your walls orange if you want (generally speaking; there might be some community restrictions). How many landlords will let you do that?
    5. You can get a better home. In some markets, it’s simply the case that the nicest places are for-sale homes and condos.
    6. It offers some inflation protection. Historically, appreciation over time outpaces inflation.
    7. It’s risk capital. If the economy picks up, you stand to benefit from that, even if you’re goal is just to have a nice place to live.
    8. It’s forced savings. A part of your payment each month goes to equity.
    9. There is a lot to choose from. There are some 4 million homes available today, about a year’s supply. Now’s the time to find something you like and get it.
    10. Sooner or later the market will clear. The U.S. is expected to grow by another 100 million people in 40 years. They have to live somewhere. Demand will eventually outpace supply.

The Spring Selling Season is Coming! Are You Ready?

At Feb 08, 2010

Seventy percent of homeowners get their first impression of a house from a picture on the internet. This makes the at-a-glance attractiveness of a home, referred to as curb appeal, more important than ever. To increase the curb appeal of your home, apply a fresh coat of asphalt sealer to the driveway to make it look like new. Prune back any severely overgrown shrubs to make the exterior of the home more visible. Lay some mulch in the planting beds to make them look better cared for. Also, consider refinishing the deck if it looks worn and weathered. While you are at it, clean the wood or vinyl cladding on your home with a pressure washer.

Could it be a Great Time to Buy and Sell?

At Jan 20, 2010

To answer in a word, maybe? The fact is it depends on who you are, what your goals are and what stage of life you are currently going through. Let me list a few scenarios where making a move in today’s Real Estate market might be too good to pass up.

1st Time Buyer – Today’s first time buyer is really set up for success. Not only will he or she take advantage of a price adjustment of over 20-25% from just a few years ago but they can also smile about historically low interest rates. Today’s 1st time may qualify for rates as low as 4.875% as of 1/19/2010. This extremely low rate will be able to place a buyer into a lot nicer home then they would normally be able to afford if interest rates were higher. Also, 1st time buyers have another few months to take advantage of an $8,000 tax credit. The tax credit now applies to sales occurring on or after January 1, 2009 and on or before April 30, 2010. However, in cases where a binding sales contract is signed by April 30, 2010, a home purchase completed by June 30, 2010 will qualify. 1st time buyers purchasing their first home now are buying at or near bottom. Real Estate has and will always be a great wealth builder. Purchasing Real Estate now will insure a safe and secure financial future.

Moving Up – For existing homeowners who may be looking to move up to a bigger home, present conditions in the market offers great rewards. Is your present home becoming a little snug for your family? Did you always want to move to a particular neighborhood? Maybe extended family is combining households and your needs require a larger home. These are all favorable scenarios to purchase in today’s Real Estate Market. Presently inventory is growing and as more and more homes become available to purchase your odds of finding exactly what you’re looking for increase. Combine that with historically low interest rates and houses going for about 20-25% off their highest values and you have “great market timing”! Sure you will sell lower and take less for your home then maybe you are thrilled about but look at the bright side. You are going to spend more money then you are selling for. If you sold your $400,000 home for 10% less than you would have liked you are short $40,000. But now you turn around and buy something for $600,000 that would have been $60,000 more just a few years ago – you are ahead $20,000.

Houses on sale!

Low Interest Rate!

Great Selection!

Maybe today’s consumer could not pick a better time to buy or sell! If you are thinking now might be a great time for you to make a move call a Coccia Real Estate Group professional today! A Realtor will listen to your needs and ask questions to determine if it is the “RIGHT” time for you to buy and or sell!
